PitchMadness: The Agent Game Rules


The Agent Game Rules
Starting on September 6 at 8AM EST through 12PM (Noon) EST on Septemer 10 the agents will stop by the host
blogs, read the entries, and make their Monopoly plays (bids) for the pitches they want to read more of. (See the ranking sheet for a list of plays – request
Here’s the participating blogs:
A Monopoly play is placing a bid for the entry (see Monopoly Play Ranking sheet) in the comments of
that entry’s post. The agents have a limited amount of plays for each request type
(partials, fulls, and trumps). The comments will be set to moderation so you
won’t see what the agents’ plays are until the reveal day.
September 10 is
reveal day. We’ll post all the comments and reveal the winning requests starting at
12:01 PM (NOON)  EST.
The best play wins the request for that entry. It’ll all play out on the Twitter hashtag #PitchMadness.
What happens with ties, you ask? Well, that’s where it
gets tricky!
The challenge round starts
after the reveal and if there are tying requests. We’ll announce the pitches
that received tying requets on the hashtag #PitchMadness on Twitter. Agents will then go to the entry post and enter another play in the
comments. Each challenge will continue until there is a winner or until all but
one player is eliminated (runs out of request plays and trumps) for that pitch. Best plays wins!
