    Default spring cigar draft 2012

    (*plagiarized from some BoTLs)

    Super Fun Mystery Cigar Draft 2012

    This is a pass of sorts but done in a fantasy football draft style.

    # of participants
    You just need to be a CigarSmokers member in good standing(at my and the "regulars" discretion) and here longer then a month. I will allow as many people who what to play join!

    # of sticks to play
    5 cigars. I'm setting the minimuIm price at $5/stick.

    If you have any question about a stick, PM me and I'll let you know. Check and compare prices if you must to get an idea of what your cigars are worth. I will be double checking anything that feel might be under the minimum.

    How it will work
    Everyone playing will submit 5 sticks to the draft. Usually, in previous drafts, each participant would post his puts in this thread. This year you will PM me your puts only. I will post 4 of each participants cigars identity in this draft thread and withhold the identity of 1 of the cigars. I will post the remaining cigar as "username's mystery cigar" or some other lame title. This way you don't choose your own cigar. You do NOT have to choose a mystery cigar.

    All sticks will be mailed to me along with $5, cash is fine, to help with my shipping costs back to each participant.(If a brother from up North wants in I'll figure out the shipping with him via PM) Once all sticks have been received I will post a list of all cigars in the draft. We will make our selections just as in a fantasy football draft ie: if there are five players each player chooses any one stick per turn in this order 1,2,3,4,5,5,4,3,2,1 etc. I will put all of the participants names in a hat and draw them one at a time, the 1st drawn being first to pick in the draft and so on. After each selection is made it will be posted in the thread and the next person will make their selection.

    So it's basically a pass but instead of taking your turn and then seeing something you would have liked to try pop up later when it's too late you get to see ALL of the possibilities up front. Of course the hard part is deciding which sticks are a "priority for you".

    Depending on how many people join the draft, I might impose a time restriction for picks to be made. If you won't be able to make a choice but don't want to be skipped, I have no problem if you get in contact with another member of the draft and give them a list of your choices in order of priority so that they may make the pick for you if that stick is available.

    Sign up and PM puts to me, Wednesday 5-2-12

    Vegas Robaina Clasicos - Nov 99 (has minor foot/wrapper damage)

    This was sent to me by one of the draft participants. My first instinct was to turn it down because I wouldn't want anyone to feel cheated receiving a damaged stick (no matter how slight). I only put this out for debate because of the 12+ years on it. I would choose this cigar just because of the age on it, but you guys may not.

    Are any of this drafts participants against this cigar being submitted?

    I'd say let it ride. It's just going to get lit on fire anyway.
