Claiming: 

  • Players will have the ability to claim horses every Monday. After everyone has had a chance to put in claims on Monday, new claims will be announced on Tuesday. In the event of two or more people trying to claim the same horse, a live video shake will be conducted by the dictator on Twitter, just like what happens when two or more people try to claim a horse out of a race. 
  • Each claim will cost you points. You can go into the negative, so you don’t have to have points established to make a claim. The claiming point fees are as follows:

– A January claim will cost you 10 points 

– A February claim will cost you 20 points 

– A March claim will cost you 30 points 

– An April claim will cost you 40 points 

– A May claim will cost you 50 points 

– A June claim will cost you 60 points 

Trades: 

  • Trades are allowed. All trades must involve an equal amount of horses. All teams must always have five members at all times 
  • All trades must be approved by the dictator in case of shenanigans 
  • Trades will be announced via email and also on the Blinkers Off Podcast
