Okay so by now you'll all be pretty familiar with my drafts as I've run three in quite quick succession. Those three are:
The last of those is still ongoing, which seems like the ideal opportunity to gather sign-ups for this draft, which is completely different to the others. It is...

The Quiz Draft

Rules of the Quiz Draft
  1. It's a quiz, but you're still trying to build the best team you can.
  2. Quiz answers must be sent to me by PM (so make sure I can contact you that way).
  3. If two people pick a player then everyone loses them.
The draft will continue until all participants have managed to fill their XIs. This could easily take fifteen or more rounds, so this draft will probably take a couple of weeks. It's entirely up to you whether you want to write profiles for your players, but if you do I'll link them in the index.

If you have any questions at any time, then please feel free to post them in the thread. Almost certainly, someone else will be wondering the same thing and you'll probably help everyone out!

Sorry don't have enough time to participate. I would miss out on my chances if I do. And that would spoil the fun of this wonderful draft.
