The First, Second, Third, and Fourth Annual March Madness contests have gone very well with all three going down to the wire in determining the winners. I've got a few games to add to the prize pool, along with maybe a few more that I may be getting soon, and maybe some donated games from generous CAGs as long as they're new and sealed or mint and complete if they're used,
Spoiler
, (if you'd like to donate games, please PM me). This contest will be conducted through Yahoo's Tourney Pick-'em set-up, which streamlines the process and just lets everyone worry about their picks. You can find the quick link to the group here.

Current Prize Pool
Dead Rising: Chop Till Your Drop (Wii) - sealed - FriskyTanuki
Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (PS3) - mint complete - FriskyTanuki
MLB 09: The Show (PS2) - mint complete - FriskyTanuki
MLB 09: The Show (PSP) - mint complete - FriskyTanuki
Noby Noby Boy (PS3) - FriskyTanuki
Peggle (Xbox 360) - FriskyTanuki
Project Gotham Racing 4 (Xbox 360) - mint complete - Danimal
College Hoops 2K7 (Xbox 360) - mint complete - Danimal
Fracture (Xbox 360) - sealed - xpacdos
Too Human (Xbox 360) - sealed - xpacdos
GRAW (Xbox 360) - mint complete - killswitch64
GRAW 2 (PS3) - sealed - killswitch64


Right now, the tourney itself is still being set up and will be set in stone on Selection Sunday (check out ESPN or whoever else that's doing coverage). However, in the meanwhile, you can sign up and join the CAG group to reserve your spot. The deadline to get your picks in is five minutes before the first game starts on Thursday, March 19.

Entry Guide: Just head to here to create your pick set and then go here and enter the group ID# (68685) and password (cheapyd) to sign up and join the group. The only thing I require of you is to post here if your pick set name or yahoo ID doesn't match your CAG ID so that I know it's you.

If I see people who haven't done this come Wednesday night (March 18), you will be booted. Last year, Yahoo started allowing people to join groups after the tipoff, so if I kick you during the final check just before tipoff, or you were not in at this point, and you join again, you will be banned from the group to prevent that from happening again. I have a list of everyone involved, so you have to be on the list to be eligible to win. I will make a check on the list to line up everyone the night before tipoff and boot anyone I cannot link to a CAG username, so you will have a chance to get back in if you let me know who you are. I will make the final sweep just before tipoff and kick any stragglers left on the list. I also have the ability to alter the rules if other changes to Yahoo's Tourney rules have been made that interfere with the ones for the contest. The group can hold up to 500 people, so I think we'll have enough for anyone that wants to join. If we do reach that total, I'll create a new group for the rest of the CAGs that want to enter.

I will probably pick winners the same way I did last year: the top 3 scorers will get prizes. Depending on how many prizes there are, the top winner will get first pick on the list, then second place, and third place gets what's left.

Feel free to chat about the tourney, your team's chances, and all that fun stuff once you sign up. If you have any questions post here.

Also, keep your posts civil and mature. If you can't do that, then don't post in this thread.

Appreciate you doing this (my job prohibited any sort of gambling to include March Madness this year). I think they got a little pissed off when 30 of us took the day after the Super Bowl off (and last year, the Thursday and Friday at the start of March Madness to watch the games at our local sports bar.
