Editorial Comments: (view spoiler)

Tome Raiders is bucking the trend, favoring New Blood over Old Pros... also the first team to completely snub another team... They Don't Need No HoC... It's going to be an interesting year for the Tome Raiders...

Like I've said, over and over, it's a whole new points game in 2019 (33% BRs, 10% Challenges, and 1.25x pages for non-audio), but it's hard to say much about the low 2018 score of this team, with so much untested talent floating around... Niki has an ambitious strategy for the coming year, for sure...

Wow, I didn't realize you had that many people who were new to the challenge on your team. Very interesting.

Chris  (haughtc) | 1633 comments Hey, (new) team. Great to be a Tomb Raider, though I can't promise I'd look good at all in a Lara Croft outfit...

Yeah, me too. But money talks ;)

Silvana (silvaubrey) | 1767 comments I knew it! Glad I did not decide to pull off from the team competition.

Looking like a great lineup with many new raiders and former reading buddies. 👍👍


message 35: by Chris (new)

Chris  (haughtc) | 1633 comments As a longtime Denver Broncos fan, it's really going to be difficult to think of myself as a "Raider".
