Fantasy Board Game League
Each fall, Draft Mechanic joins together with content creators across the boardosphere to bring you the Fantasy Board Game League! Each team manager drafts a team of games and fields those games in head-to-head matchups with the other participants week after week. Each team features games in five fixed 'positions:' Gateway, Euro, 4+ Weight, Card Game, and Abstract - in addition to five more 'general' players. The teams score based on their games' BGG ratings, change in ratings, plays logged, and each team gets additional points from weekly voting from YOU, our listeners! What's the incentive? Well, in addition to helping your favorite content creators get ahead, we're entering all votes into a random drawing for game prizes and the chance to win a $100 gift certificate to an Online Game Store of your choice!
SEASON TWO of the Fantasy Board Game League has come to a close, and it ended the way it began with a Championship matchup featuring our two longest-named teams, "Viva Java: The Coffee Game: The Dice Game: The Fantasy Team" versus "Why The Hell Did You Pick That Game This Week?" The matchup was close, but in the end, VJ:TCG:TDG:TFT ended the season undefeated with the championship trophy.

the 2017 fbgl teams
The teams below are listed in drafting order. We drafted a serpentine draft, with Jake starting and the order reversing starting with Quinten each even-numbered round. All games currently listed on BoardGameGeek.com were eligible for the draft. Games with separate entries for 'second editions' are separate choices (for example, Through the Ages and Through the Ages New). Team coaches are allowed to field or drop games from their bench up until Thursday. Coaches can also drop games entirely to pick up games that are not currently on a team, first-come, first-serve to go into effect at the start of the next week. Play weeks reset each Sunday afternoon.
