This Is How I Play #2 - PDQ

Game: The first game is called PDQ, or Pretty Darn Quick. This is an incredibly popular parkour game, where the basic objective is to jump on peoples' feet. This is actually one of the more complicated games, it usually takes a practice game for everyone to get the hang of it. I often play a “demo game” as I'm teaching it, so people can see the rules and their effects.

Rules: You start in a circle and everyone puts one first in the center. Someone (usually the winner of the last game) picks a random person, taps their fist, and counts “one,” moves to the next person in the circle, “two” and so on until everyone has been numbered. Once everyone has a number, everyone shouts “One, two, three, PDQ!” and everyone simultaneously takes one jump away from the center.

At this point, you continue in number order (“one” is first, “two” is second, etc). When it is your turn to go, your goal is to jump on someone else's foot. No one can move until you are in the air, however. If you feint and pretend to jump and someone else moves their feet, then they are eliminated. If you jump and land on someone's feet, they are eliminated.

The interesting twist to this game is... you can only jump when the person who is “it” is in the air. However, if you jump and land on someone else's feet, you can still get them out even though it isn't your turn.

Drafting Strategy 102 - Under The Radar

On Unique FC

Continuing on the drafting strategy front, let's take a look at the group of players that will lead to most of the mind games over the course of the draft. We are referring to the 'under the radar' players that you would like to get in.

What defines such a player? Well, quite simply, this is a player that you expect will score well over the season but has a profile low enough for you to risk leaving him for the later rounds of the draft. This provides 2 obvious advantages: You get to draft in more sought after players in the earlier rounds while they are still available while getting a player you really want in the later rounds (where traditionally you would have to 'settle' for the best from what's remaining).

This is, of course, a high risk strategy as misjudging how far under the radar a player is, exactly, can be tricky (Michu still haunts me from last season!). So, the things you need to consider before gambling on leaving a player you really want till the later rounds:
