Come right in, Mr. Covington; so glad you could make it to our meeting today. I’m delighted to have have the opportunity to speak with you about my casino proposal. We’re very excited about the prospect of expanding into a second casino. Given the success the Black Bear has had, I truly believe building a new casino where the Hampton Hotel used to be would help to revitalize Freeport’s economy. Plus, we’ve come up with a new featured game that I think will serve as the central feature of the casino.
What game you ask? Why, Fantasy Mock Trial, of course! Perhaps, you’ve heard of it? Or maybe you’d like to give it a try? I tell you what, here are $250,000 worth of fantasy mock trial chips, and I’ll get you a copy of the rules. You could win big, and after all, we want to make sure everyone is happy, especially you. We’ve got this beautiful briefcase for you if you win.
Go this spreadsheet and select exactly 8 teams.
In selecting your teams, you must observe the following constraints:
- Spend no more than $250,000.
- Max of 2 teams from the same ORCS.
- If you select an A team, you must select a B team. In other words, unless you select all teams that have only 1 bid, you must select at least 1 B team.
- Only 1 team per school. You cannot have Midlands State A and Midlands State B.
Once you have selected your teams, submit you selection to the Google form below. I also encourage you to post them on Perjuries so others can see your selection, but if you wish have your selection remain secret you may do so. However, you must submit your team selection to the Google form. Selections posted only on Perjuries and not to the form are not eligible for the fantastic prize. Submissions are due by noon on Friday, March 11th, Central Time.
Wins, Ties, and CS:
Points = (Wins+.5*Ties)*(.75+.5(TeamCS/AvgCS))
2 Points for bid to NCT
1 Point for Honorable Mention
1 Point for SPAMTA
Fantasy Mock Trial Reference:
10 Points if you can prove (via round footage) that your team argued in the round that Covington won the money he deposited in a fantasy mock trial casino game.
The fantasy team with the most points wins a dingy old briefcase, which contains either $250,000 or a cologne stain (hint: it doesn’t contain $250,000). Winner pays shipping & handling unless you live in Minneapolis or Des Moines.
NCT Fantasy Mock Trial:
Bear in mind when picking your teams that as with last year, there will be a discount on teams for the NCT Fantasy Mock Trial league if you carry over your ORCS teams. Though the discount won’t be quite as large (50% off gave people, including myself, an unduly large advantage), there is an incentive to pick teams that you believe will do well at both levels of competition. If you have any questions, post them below or PM me and I'll do my best to answer them.
