I've heard good things about an auction style draft and I feel like it could make for a fun activity to do in person with a bunch of buddies for my league next year.
For those of you more experienced with the style, I was wondering are auction style drafts worth trying? If so what are some essential rules/guidelines that go well with an auction style draft? Any other tips?
I participated in my first auctions here at the cafe this year. I have not have a live auction, but would like to try it. It is a different mentallity going into the draft and trying to make sure you spend the right amount for the initial players you draft and then there is the nomination process, do you nominate a player you want or a player that people will spend a lot on that you don't care for. Many factors to consider.
I enjoyed my first crack at it, I think it will take a little time in order to get good at it. Especially compared to a snake style draft.
