    Daily Fantasy game thread

    Thought It'd be better off starting a new thread for this so games/contests could be sorted out in the future.

    Was pretty impressed the way this ran over the weekend, just wish they had more individual games on offer, something I'm sure they'll add once it gains more popularity.

    If people are keen I'm more than happy to set up games/contests as I've got the spare time to do this atm.

    Looked into this a little further this evening and it looks like we won't be able to do private games for a few weeks. Asked them on twitter and that was the response I got.

    Yeah had a look at it over the weekend & entered the free comps. Looks pretty good & could be a bit of fun & maybe make a few bucks in some of the cash comps

    The prize pool for the free games has dropped to $50 this week and a $2, $5 and two $10 games have been added.

    Try the NRL ones as well.

    ended up winning the weekly free roll one quite comfortably, and I don't even play any NRL fantasy

    Great stuff. Are you finding the NRL squads are a little easier to pick than the AFL ones, it could be a case of "I don't care as much who I pick in the NRL" and take the 'pot luck' approach with it.

    with the NRl single game ones its more a case of very little selection, given less players and more positions, picking say a hooker you only really have 2 options.
    Also with the origin players out a lot of the top priced guys aren't playing with cheaper options so it makes the salary cap pointless.

    I picked in about 3 minutes yesterday. I don't know any of the players and got the teams mixed up. Pretty happy to admit it was luck.

    Re: Daily Fantasy game thread

    For those interested in some sort of fantasy games for the GF, draft stars is still running at the moment and in addition to the paid entry comps that they usually run, they also have a free entry (exc SA and NSW) game with a $100k winner take all prize. The format is a turbo which means every entry chooses 6 players, 1 from each group. Consequently, with over 5000 entries at this stage, I would expect every combination to have multiple winners and the $100k to be split.

    "All Entries that beat the team selected by Campbell Brown (Browny) will share equally in $100,000.

    Browny's Team* J.P. Kennedy, L. Dahlhaus, J. Lloyd, I. Heeney, D. Rampe, H. Grundy"

    so unless your the only team to beat him you won't win the 100k , Still cool of draft stars to offer such a good prize pool.
