Just finished finalizing the challenge. Here are the stats.

* 17 questions + 1 tiebreaker
* 10 new questions, including 2 making their format debut
* First question ever with more than one right answer
* 8 Vikings related questions
* A big surprise

The contest is worth more points than ever. Themes remain players, teams, trades and of course, as always, Vikings. And the contest definitely extends into Day 3, so it won't be over after the 1st round like in past years.

See you in a few hours.

To clarify, the team that selects last is about the final pick of the draft. I'll re word the question.

Murph, looks like you had two entries on accident. I deleted the one that wasn't the most recent update.

Vikings picks only get bonus points if they are one of the entries selected bonus point teams. Right?

That rat bastard ain't winning lol. Jaleel Johnson and his 10 points isn't in this draft.

But, to be fair, if he wins it again this year, I'll rename the contest after him.

Sorry, but one final question about the bonus points teams. If somebody gets any of the Vikings selections correct do they also get bonus points if the Vikings are one of their two bonus points teams?

Like the questions about the Vikings specifically, as in number of trades, players selected, etc?

I was trying to clarify if we get bonus points only if the answer to the Question was Vikings or if we got bonus points for having the correct answer to any question involving the Vikings.
Example: If I get the Vikings last selection correct I get 20 points. If I have the Vikings as one of my 2 Bonus points team do you add 2 more points?

Cmon dude. Weve been doing bonus points for three or four years.

No, you don't get bonus points for that. Why would you even think you get extra points for a non team oriented question, such as naming a player selected?
