Fantasy Movie League Fall 2019 Final Score

I said at the mid-season check-in that the fall 2019 Fantasy Movie League race was more interesting than usual.

The race remained tight right up until week 10, when SynCaine bet on Midway and ended up with the perfect pick, which got him $95 million for the week, $40 million more than the second place pick.  That jumped him up into first place overall and opened up a gap that nobody was able to close in the final three weeks, so the final top scores for the TAGN league for fall were:

  1. SynCaine’s Dark Room of Delights – $1,003,734,130
  2. Wilhelm’s Qeynosian Kinetoscope – $948,306,363
  3. Too Orangey For Crows – $926,452,645
  4. Cyanbane’s Neuticles Viewing Party – $914,543,237
  5. Po Huit’s Sweet Movie Suite – $885,407,281
  6. Joanie’s Joint – $838,079,152

The alternate scoring, based on a 1 to 5 point scale this time around since we had only about seven regulars, ended up as follows:

  1. SynCaine’s Dark Room of Delights – 42
  2. Too Orangey For Crows – 37
  3. Wilhelm’s Qeynosian Kinetoscope – 31
  4. Cyanbane’s Neuticles Viewing Party – 26
  5. Po Huit’s Sweet Movie Suite – 26
  6. Joanie’s Joint – 14

Bhagpuss and I swapped spots for the alternate scoring.  During close weeks I was frequently in the pack but several spots down.  I extended the final scores to six players as Joanie actually had the top score two weeks, which was as often as I won.

Congratulations to SynCaine for winning the season!

The winter, or “awards” season starts this week.  I won’t be covering it on a weekly basis.  But if it turns out to be another interesting race I will give a mid-season update.

If you want to join on the league you need to make a Fantasy Movie League account.  Once that is done, go to the leagues page, find the search field, and enter TAGN, which should bring up only our league.  Click on the link for TAGN Movie Obsession.  That should bring you to the league page where you will find a button that says Join.  Click that, enter George as the password, and you’re in.

    And you know Fantasy Movie League must be on to something because every time I do an FML post and it gets fed to Twitter, I get a response from CinemaDraft, which is apparently a money version of FML the way DraftKings and FanDuel cover sports fantasy leagues for those wanting to bet money on them.

    Or maybe CinemaDraft is just kidding itself. Still, it is interesting to see that there is such a thing.

    Can’t imagine people playing real-money for this, as basically one week of early indicators makes or breaks the season, usually. But then I’m sure people do.

    I was doing OK until the last few weeks. Forgot to pick this week, which really showed.

    My vote is for no bonuses whatsoever this time. No best performer, no worst performer, no empty screen penalties. Just pick movies.

    Thanks as always for running this!
