    Hi fellow beer advocates. I'm gonna run a Lif to go with the NFL season. Have 15 BAers already looking for 17 more plus a few alternates in case someone drops out, since we have 2 months until the season starts. I will video tape and post the team random drawing and explanation of rules.

    Score 33 Pts win or lose.
    Next I will break up the BAers in 4 groups of 8.
    The first 8 picked start at week 1. Then 8 more will start week 5( unless someone hits in the first 4 weeks)

    Example. Week 3 Jimmy hits! Jimmy gets 44 oz from the first 8 BAers Now the 8 that were picked to start week 5 as beer senders now move up to week 4! There will be no gaps in the season. So it looks like this 8 beer senders start week 1(very unlucky since someone is bound to hit 33) another 8 in week 5 (unless some hits 33 in first for weeks) then the next 8 senders start week 9( unless 2 hits happen before week 9) then the last 8 senders( the luckiest bunch since less weeks for a chance of a hit starts week 13 unless 3 hits happen before week 13)

    If no one hits in the first 4 weeks, the 8 beer senders roll over into the next 8 senders.
    What's that mean? No hits first four weeks those 8 senders are now combined with the 8 senders for week 5! So jimmy hits week 7! He now receives 16 boxes!
    If two BAers hit the same week, they split the boxes.
    If you are a sender and you hit, you receive from the other senders and box from yourself;)
    Season will end if all 32 senders send or no one hits. If no one hits all year, no one loses any boxes.
    Last season it happened 3 times. So that would mean the last 8 senders wouldn't lose anything.
    So the most you can win is 31 boxes! How? We get to week 13 and no one hit 33 Pts yet, then your team does! That's everyone sending you boxes!
    So this is such a random luck game.
    You hope to draw a high scoring team, but not always a determine factor. You Definitly don't want to draw one of the first 8 beer senders, since chances are the is someone gonna hit at least once this season. You draw week 1 your in for the whole season as a sender you draw week 5 your in from that point on as a sender(of course even longer if some one hits in the first 4 weeks)


    So in a nutshell:
    1. 44oz good quality beer
    2. Random Drawn NFL Team
    3. Team needs to score 33pts final score win or lose
    4 random drawn senders week1 (8 people) week 5(8 more barring any hits in first 4 weeks)week 9 (8 more etc) week 13(last 8)
    5. 2 or more winners hit they split ( if 4 people hit they split what ever box total were at)
    Example 4 guys hit week 11 no one hit yet, that's 24 boxes split.
    6. No gaps in beer sending schedule! If some one hits early or say someone hits week 5, now the 8 people drawn for week 9 move all the way up and start from week 6 (bad luck but it is what it is) No Gaps.
    7. If all 4 groups give beer out game is over. Example hits in weeks 2,6,8,12 weeks 13 and on are worthless there's no more beer. Game is also over after week 17 of course with or without any winners.
    8. If you are a sender and you hit you still get the total number of boxes minus your own. Example you hit week 4, you get the other 7 boxes.
    9. Group of 8 will rollover into the next group of 8 if no hits occur.
    Example week 9 comes and no one hit during weeks 5-8, the senders from week 5 now merge with senders from week 9 so 16 senders!

    All this might look complicated but it's not. I will post the team drawing July 20th. Then the beer sending order July 27th. I will be on vacation and a lot of ot in August, that's why so early. I will answer any questions on here or beermail I can even give you my number doesn't matter whatever you need to understand. I have 15 so far looking for 17 more and maybe 3-4 alternates.

    Thank you
    Cheers!
    Damian

    Just one more I forgot to mention delivery window. I think it should be 4-6 weeks after someone hits the senders should send.

    Example someone hits week 2 the senders need to send 4-6 weeks after that day he hit. Just because who wants to wait until the end of the season 17 weeks then another month or so after that? I wouldn't. Hope that is cool with the 17 in so far.

    I would like to get my Eagles but if I don't I just hope I dont get NYG or Dallas! I would hate to keep monitoring them and hoping they hit since I dislike them so much! ;) well maybe Ill feel better if I got one of them and they hit 33 but lose. That would be ok then.
