March Madness Fun
For the NCAA Basketball tournament, we’ve been playing an auction game for the past several years. This year Bellwether Analytics has decided you should be able to play the same game we do! Instead of boring old bracket selections, try playing an auction pool. The idea is for your friends and you to bid on teams. The amount in the pool depends on the rules you, as commissioner, set. Set a deadline for the pool, and enjoy watching your friends outbid each other for your favorite teams or Cinderellas!
Each win gets you a percentage of the pool – for example, you can set it up so one win gets 0.5% of the pool, making the sweet sixteen could gets you 2.5% of the pool, and winning the entire tournament gets you 17% of the pool. This opens up a ton of interesting strategies:
- Do you bid on the favorites and hope they go far, realizing an early loss hurts a lot?
- Do you focus on inexpensive Cinderellas, and hope they grab a win or two?
- What do you do when another player gets in a real-time bidding battle with you for your favorite team? Do you let it go, or go outbid them on another team?
This tool is set up to be very flexible depending on what you and your friends want. Click the link below to access the tool and then get 10-25 friends together and experience March Madness in a much more fun way! We’ve included full instructions and tips to get you set up quickly.
Go Illini and Colgate!
