A plea to those drafting: please make sure you're on a stable internet connection that day. Don't draft from your flip phone mobile in a Faraday cage while crossing the Atlantic. It's not fair to your fellow 9 drafters who have lives outside of this draft, and it's super unfair to the mods who volunteer their time to keep FBTB up and make these awesome events happen.

^ You're on the standby list, but odds are really, really good that you will make it into the draft. I think we dipped into the standby list 4 people deep last round.

Everyone else: payment instructions will go out in the morning. Order will again be randomly determined by one or the other of my kids picking from a hat. Inventory should be out Sunday or Monday.

Either PM notifications aren't going out, Paypal's busted, or no one wants to be in this draft... :S

Yeah, I haven't gotten a PM notifications via email in a while. Did the defaults change about sending an email when a PM arrive, or did I mis-clicked a preference to prevent this? All paid up now!

We looked into it, and can't find anything out of the ordinary. Maybe people are just super busy today? I might have to break my own rule and extend the payment deadline, because 2 paid out of 10 indicates something weird going on, especially since 9 out of 10 of the last drafters paid up within the hour of instructions going out!

Sadly, thegremlin is dropping from the 10. Hopefully I'll see most of you at the January Draft.

Until then, Happy Holidays ... and may the Lego discounts this season be BIG!

I'm now unable to commit unless another parent steps up to drive my charge to next weekend's volleyball tourney. I hesitated on replying as such, hoping, and will try to get back later today as to possible availability. If this is still on and possible, of course - I know I'm late now, and feel badly about that. Cheers for setting this up!

Alas; no go for me. So sorry!

(I don't get it - her team was playing a top team for the right to the play-in position to the postseason tourney, and somehow her team won. What can you do?)

Molrak, I made arrangements to get a day off from the faraday cage for the draft, will still be in the Atlantic, but this island doesn't move very fast ;-)

Chief/Onions, I didn't get email notification of the PM either, wonder if there's a problem... checked spam folder and all.

Can't wait til Sat! got a busy day but all fun stuff.

I don't know what went wrong. I got the e-mails for my PMs.

Thanks for opening this up for everyone. I'm looking forward to this, already looking through the parts list for goodies that I can use for my Mobile Fram Zero frames. :D

Cadzooks! This is my first draft, and I'm really excited. I feel lucky to have a shot at a spot since I missed the deadline!

Hello and thank you to all the new interested visitors!

Sorting and splitting the set is taking slightly longer than I anticipated, and I have been filling the vacant draft spots. I am aiming to have the inventory available for everyone sometime tomorrow night (Wednesday Nov 14th.)

Finally finished inventory. Much easier than the last draft, but still more than I expected.

The votes for minifigs were 6 participants in favor of a 4-3-3 split. I made one executive decision to split Cad Bane 2-2-2-2-2. This not only lets us spread the value of minifigs around a bit more, but it also filled out the draft to an even 13 choices for everyone.

Check it out here. Save your own copy, and start marking your priorities for Saturday morning!

This might be the last time we use this spreadsheet format. During the time off between now and the January draft, I'd like to take the feedback and research done since the last draft and find the best solution.

It's a pretty great spread of parts, I was pleasantly surprised by the variety and quantity of a lot of these pieces. Almost makes me want to join in.

I'm still trying to fill our final spot. I'm hoping to finally lock someone in on Thursday so I can stop worrying about it.

Here's our draft order:
001_azoreg
002_twbooth
003_justplainjim
004_molrak
005_sirbasilashton
006_ltr
007_noahtom
008_kjklock
009_murphquake
010_TBD

Please use these names when you sign into the #fbtbdraft chat on Saturday morning at 10 am PST.
