Welcome to the 9th year of the NFL Survivor League. Are you ready for some football?!

PLEASE READ ALL 7 RULES BEFORE PARTICIPATING

1. The cost to play is a one time entry fee of 5 geekgold. Please tip that to the geeklist up here in the header, NOT down on item 1 of the geeklist. If you have not tipped the full 5 geekgold when the game you picked in Week 1 begins, your pick is considered invalid and you are not entered into the league.

2. Every week you pick one team to win their game by commenting on the list item for the current week. The win is straight up, no points/odds involved. Once you have picked a team you can no longer pick them for the rest of the season. If the team you pick wins their game you move on to the next week, if not you are out...completely.

3. Do not count on reminder e-mails to get your picks in. While I might be able to do this occasionally, I take no responsibility to remember. If you forget when kickoff of the last game of the week happens, you are out. It is best to subscribe to this list so you get notice when new items are posted.

4. Picks should be in before kick-off of the game you are picking. So technically you can procrastinate until Monday night, but that just leaves you the Monday night game(s) to choose from.

5. Changing your pick is allowed, but it must be done before both the game previously picked and the game newly picked start. If you change your pick do so by ADDING A NEW COMMENT, not by editing your old comment. (It would also help if you note that it is a change in pick.) If you change a pick by editing your existing comment there is no guarantee that I will catch it, and you just make my job harder.

6. If an NFL game ends overtime still in a tie, that is not a win for either team, so any picks for either of those teams equates to a loss and elimination.

7. Last man standing gets the entire geekgold pot. If all remaining participants are eliminated on the same week, or all remaining participants survive through all 17 weeks of the season, the pot will be split equally among them. We will NOT be using playoff games to continue, this league is for the regular season only, so don't feel like you need to save up teams that will make the playoffs.

Also, this is not a requirement, I'd appreciate if you'd give the geeklist a thumbsup because that keeps us on the front page and will maximize the number of participants (and the size of the pot.)

Most importantly...HAVE FUN!!

This year we also have a microbadge! You can purchase it here: Microbadge: NFL Survivor League 2016

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the largest BGG Survivor League in history. With 398 participating, we have more surviving after the first weekend of football than we had going into the first week last year. Sadly, there were 64 people who were eliminated in the first round this year. Good luck to all those who are still alive! Here are the games to pick from this week:

I was actually off on my count last week because there was another person who I had some confusion with, so we started with 399 participants. After losing 64 in Week 1 and 93 in Week 2, we are now at 242 participants that are still alive. And my Lions are the kings of knocking players out! Good luck to those who remain.

Another 17 dropped from the group and now we are down to just 64 people left standing. And picking for or against the Lions continues to be one of the most risky endeavors this year. Good luck!

Well, I think we were due for another big upset, and even a heavily-favored team can screw up when it comes to a road game against a division rival. We are now down to 41 left in the league. Good luck to you all!

Nobody out this week, so we continue on. 29 people still holding on, despite the Lions' attempt to take out half of you.

I'm going to be quite busy starting on Thursday because of Thanksgiving, so if possible...
Please get in your picks ASAP!

It was bound to happen, finally the lousy teams won some games and created chaos in the Survivor League. Half the players are eliminated, leaving 9 people to fight it out for one more week.

Here we go! Walking into the final week, anyone who survives is looking at a bare minimum of 233 geekgold, but can you make one last smart pick?
