In most drafts the partners all have the same number of picks which makes creating the draft order simple. However, what happens if the number of picks varies from picker to picker? What if it varies significantly? How can you divide what you are sharing when the number of picks are not equal?
The Torney Draft Order Algorithm calculates optimized draft orders. These draft orders enable groups to fairly divide what they are sharing.
Let's consider a group of 6 people sharing season tickets to an 83 game season. All of the partners are taking a different number of games.
And here is the draft order generated by the Torney Draft Order Algorithm given these 6 partners and the number of games they are each taking...
If you review each partner you will see a fair distribution based on how many games they are taking. The partners taking more games have more of the initial picks, but even the partner taking only 5 games, Steve S, has a fair distribution of picks in the order. Since this order was generated mathematically, each partner has fair picks in the draft.
