Join the Worst Performer League - Summer 2019

The WPL is a chimera of sorts combining aspects of STEVE's Bonus League, Race to the Bottom, and the $0 Cineplex game.

You will advance each week if your cineplex satisfies two criteria:
1) It must contain at least one screen of that week's Worst Performing Movie.
2) Your box office total for the week must not "zero" out. In other words, your box office for the week must equal at least $1

To assist you in this endeavor, bonuses will be added to or deducted from your cineplex total as follows:

Empty Screens: +$5,000,000
Best Performer: +$5,000,000
Worst Performer: -$2,000,000

There will be no PC bonus or penalty.

The winner will be the player who survives all 13 weeks of the Summer season with the LOWEST cineplex total.

And the fun thing is…no spreadsheets necessary!

The actual competition will start with the first week of the Summer season (June 7-9) but I've opened the league for the last 2 weeks of the Spring season to allow some time for folks to get the hang of game play.



You won't be able to make any picks until the week rolls over on Monday (5/20) but I'll open a pinned chat thread on the League Chatter so if you have any questions feel free to hit me up there or over here.
