The Game and The Rules!


This is a game based around the new season, Season 4, of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD). There are two parts to the game:

Part One is similar to fantasy football or other type fantasy leagues. The players will draft a team of dancers to play for them... the farther the dancers on the team get, the more points the player gets.

Part Two is the weekly part of the game. Each week two or more people are voted off of the show. After the show and before the results show, each player guesses who they think will get voted off. If they guess right, they will get points.

Whoever has the most points at the end of the show is the winner.



1. Part One: Draft

1a. Drafting begins after the first 4-5 episodes of SYTYCD, when the dancers are whittled down to the top 20. At this point we will hold a draft to allow each of the players to choose dancers to make up their team.

1b. We will draw names out of a hat for who gets to draft first, second, etc.

1c. The team size will depend on the number of players. If there are 5 players, the team size will be 4. If there are 6 players, the team size will be 3 (with two of the top 20 not chosen).

1d. The draft will snake, meaning if we've drawn for order and the order is players A, B, C, then D, then the draft would go as follows: A, B, C, D, then back the other way, D, C, B, A, and repeat A, B, C... etc... until all of the teams are chosen.

1e. Points will be awarded to the player for each dancer in the week they are sent home. The later the dancer is sent home, the more points the player will receive:

1 - Weeks 2 and 3
2 - Weeks 4 and 5
3 - Weeks 6, 7, and 8
5 - Finalist
7 - Winner

2. Part Two: Voted Off

2a. Each week dancers are voted off the show. Each player guesses which dancers will be voted off.

2b. Each player must submit their guesses before the results show along with a paragraph stating why they are guessing the way they are and how they thought their team did.

2c. For each dancer the player guesses correctly, the player will be awarded 1 point.
