Respond to the question: Snake Draft Game Theory?

04/19/2007 12:35 PM by Brett; Snake Draft Game Theory
I am interested in determining how value should be calculated in a snake draft. For example, there are 4 drafters (A,B,C, and D). Each must select 2 elements from each of 5 categories (Z,Y,X,W,V) in a snake draft order (A-B-C-D-D-C-B-A) until all elements are gone. The value of each element is known, but the -relative- value of each compared to the other groups is what we'd like to determine. For example
Z: 100,90,80,70,60,50,40,30
Y: 100,100,100,90,90,90,50,10
X: 90,70,50,30,10,10,10,10
W: 80,20,20,20,10,10,10,10
V: 100,90,70,70,70,50,40,30

Which element is the most valuable? How do you continue to determine the next most valuable element?
