Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

I explained to my wife I was drafting 24 places to spend a week in, starting in Vegas & heading west for each trip.

After she decided it was too long of a vacation...

JMWife: so we're going to San Diego 1st I assume?
JM3: yes...
JMWife: & then Hawaii?
JM3: no, Bora Bora, then Hawaii
JMWife: Bora Bora comes before Hawaii???
JM3: I know right!?!?

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

JM3 trip so far:
Las Vegas - 115.1398 W
San Diego - 117.1611 W
Bora Bora - 151.7415 W
Maui - 156.3319 W

After the arduous trek from home to the stressful environs of San Diego, I proceed to soldier through a stay in Bora Bora...can I catch a break?

Spoiler:


I looked up the islands & it seemed like Maui was what I was looking for in terms of relaxation, beaches, & stuff to do.

Then I took an internet test & it was confirmed:

Maui 278
UNDRAFTED 270
UNDRAFTED 270
Big Island 256

It's here.

Hopefully a mod reads the pub and will edit it in the first post.

I think it might make sense to re-rand after each Puerto Rico (every 8 rounds), to add a different element of randomness, but it doesn't actually matter to me.

I don't think this is true at all. Everyone gets every position (1-8) once.

Re: Around the world vacation -- Game thread

yeah, i don't feel screwed. this is a strange draft where you don't necessarily pick the best destination first round

someone will be screwed, but we don't know who yet....

most of you(all of you?) were screwed by the genetic lottery though
