Top Chef Fantasy Game

Hi all. I know I'm a bit early, but I just learned that there is a Top Chef Fantasy Game (kind of like fantasy football, I guess). I'm a neophyte to this whole fantasy playing so I'm not quite sure exactly what this is about. It seems that they assign points for certain things -- eg. winning challenges, crying, fighting and losing points for things such as being eliminated, cutting yourself, etc. I do have friends who are big fans of these online fantasy games and say it's a lot of fun. While I used to make fun of those people, looks like I'm going to be one of them. I've created a Chowhound group on fafarazzi.com. I thought it would be fun if we can all play once the season gets started.

Here's the link to sign up and pick your team.

And please join the Chowhound group when you sign up so we can compete against each other.

I kept the group public because I didn't want to really be bothered with the administrative duties of having people "apply" to this group. But anyone can join. And I'm not exactly sure what a "group" is or a "league" is. Are they the same thing? If somebody can enlighten me, I'd appreciate it!

    1. OK, now I just need to figure out how to play..................

      1. Cool, I'm in. It's hard to make your picks just by reading their bios.

          I'm in.

          Thanks for setting this up!

          (However, the site could make it slighty easier to figure out!) ;-)

        2. Yay! Thanks for setting this up Miss Needle. Such a good idea! I can't wait for Top Chef to start...only 3 weeks but who's counting?

          1. ooh, fun! i'll have to get it on this. btw, Needle, i almost didn't recognize you with your new avatar! ;)

              Oh silly me. I accidentally deleted my avatar and couldn't find it on my computer as I recently got a new one and shifted some files around. So this was the best I could do.

              Looking forward to seeing you all in Fantasy Land!

                i like it. probably because i love the color green.

                thanks again for organizing this, i just joined fafa & set up my team. i hope i can figure it out as it progresses - like you, i'm a fantasy team newbie.

                btw, does anyone else think this is the strongest crop of female chefs thus far?
