  • The Intellectuals Draft

    That's right, bitches. You get to draft all the badass mofos in history who paved the way...with their minds.

    Philosophers, scientists, mathematicians, any sort of polymath...intellectuals in general. I will set the amount of draft picks, any restrictions on necessary picks, etc once I have enough people so we can discuss what makes sense. After the draft, there will be a poll to determine the best team. You will want to be able to argue for your intellectual...yes I will allow Wikipedia and other sourcing, but be able to spice up how awesome they were.

    There are six rounds, and four required picks: intellectuals in the Arts, two for Knowledge (philosophy, mathematics, science, and religion) and one for Leadership (specifically Politics and Military) , along with two wildcards. There is overlap in these areas with some polymaths, but I will be the arbiter (with some discussion of course) on who fits what catergory.
