Summerpalooza: Rebranding in progress

66 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

This concept may be too minimal for some but I don't think a summer theme should have too many category constraints.  I started off along the lines of "songs about..." but ran out of topics pretty quickly.  So let's keep it dead simple with no fixed categories.  You can pick songs about summer, songs that feel like summer, came out in summer, remind you of summer, whatever. It's open to hits or obscurities from any genre.  Like other music drafts I've run, this one has a bunch of rules but no judgement.  Summer for me means fog and sweatshirts so who am I to criticize your interpretation.

The palooza dice gimmick will be used to determine which decade can be drafted from each round.  I'll roll two dice each round corresponding to two (or possibly one if doubles are thrown) decades. You pick a summer song from one of the eligible decades.  60s, 70s, 80s and 90s are definitely in.  We can decide whether to also include pre-1960 songs and whether to split the 21st century into one or two categories.

Once every decade gets rolled three times, the draft ends.  There's no limit to how many times a decade can be rolled.  It'll probably be a quickie but that's fitting because summer always goes by too fast.

Of course there will be playlist(s) because that's basically all this thing is, except for the :nerd: talk, drunk lyrics, easy days and mellow nights.  I haven't decided whether to have one uber list, split by drafter or split by decade.

I almost forgot the most important rule.

That damned Kid Rock song is blacklisted.  You know the one.

I'm proud to say I don't. 

Yeah! 

Anyway, totally in for a summer-themed draft. I hope to roll 1.01 so I can take my favorite summer song.

If that was a reason to not do something, we wouldn't have The Dark Knight or Gatti-Ward 3.

If we did, I think the thread's been purged.  I tried searching and came up empty.

Eras:   60s, 70s, 80s, 90s are IN

Question 1:  include pre-1960 as a separate category or roll it in with 60s?

Question 2:  21st century in its entirety or split between 2000-09 and 2010-18?

I vote for 1) pre-60s as its own category, and 2) split the 21st century.

Separate pre 60

Split the last 18 years

Think of more possible rounds

I did a couple of simulation rolls with two 7-sided dice.  It took 15 and 18 rounds for the last number to come up for the third time. 

I think the theoretical minimum is between 10 and 11 rounds and the maximum is 50 as it is for all Palooza variants.

This game has a lot of commercials.

I'm sorry but I'm going to put Summerpalooza back in the cooler until next month.  The World Cup is coming up and I don't want to ghost on my own draft.

If we start after July 4th, the groups and round of 16 will be finished and the calendar less cluttered.  If someone else wants to run this thing, I'll play along but good commissioneering takes more commitment than I'm prepared to offer right now.

Hey diddle-diddle, there's a fella in the middle
And I think he's pulling my string
My wife's lactating and I'm spectating
It's a football thing

Summer's just beginning, baby
I might learn to hate you, lady
One weekend you're acting crazy
I might have to hate you, baby
This ain't what I thought it would be
This is the saddest summer ever
The saddest summer ever
