Box Office Champs Launches

Thursday, May 2 2013 11:05 a.m.

A fantasy movie game built using Django. This is a very easy game where you pick the 15 movies you think will be the highest grossing movies of the season. You can create a group and compete with your friends.

You should give the site a try today. Iron Man 3 opens tomorrow and you definitely want to have that movie on your roster. Unlike fantasy sports, you can play this game 4 times a year. The summer season starts tomorrow.

Kudos to Rudy Menendez who did principal development and game design and Noah Wenz for design and HTML. The site was with spare time over the last few months. Put together, development time was about 2-3 weeks.

If you need a fantasy site done, contact Ed or Rudy Menendez and we can help you out.

BestBuy Fantasy Footaball Launches

Wednesday, September 21 2011 11:59 a.m.

Launched back before NFL week 1. But, that was DjangoCon 2011, so the post happens today.

Best Buy's site is operating for the third year in a row. Originally it was open to the public, but now it is employee only. You play by selecting a line-up every week and play against your co-workers and against the CEO. Makes for really fun team building.

The site solves one simple problem. Messy email based fantasy drafts. Our goal was to make something as simple to setup as an email draft but without any of the downside.

The concept is simple, celebrity media meets fantasy sports. You pick a roster of celebrities that will be all over the blogs and magazines and you get points when they appear. Getting the cover of People magazine is like getting a touchdown in fantasy football. Your celebrity got arrested? You lose points.

For those of you that think I disappeared... This is what I've been working on the last few months. Check it out!

fantasy, fun
