In a sports draft, all of the players (options) are known from the start, and there is only one of each player. In many card games, players draft from a limited pool of cards at a time (e.g. 7 Wonders). Or there are multiple copies of each card available (e.g. Dominion). I'm not sure I'd even call the latter a draft.

What game that includes drafting would you say comes the closest to a sports draft? That is, a game where most or all options are known and available at all times, and one player's selections limit the other players' options (because of few or no duplication of available options).

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Well, Citadels for sure, but that's rather limited in scope.

Perhaps In the Shadow of the Emperor is close enough.

It's not a card game, but Heroscape Master Set: Rise of the Valkyrie has a draft like that.

Most worker placement games work pretty much like that.

That's a good point. A difference there is usually that with worker placement you usually have fewer actions and choices than in a card game.

Interesting question.

In thinking about it, Was sticht? is like that (somewhat). You have all the cards in the game laid out. First player picks from the first row and once everyone picks, you find out who the winner of that trick was and it starts again (9 rows) This is just for the drafting of your hand. You will have specific goals you are drafting for, as well. Then you play out your hand in a classic trick taking fashion trying to reach said goals.

Core Worlds has an optional Draft at the beginning that works like that. All draft cards are put on the table, then one at a time a player can snag one and add it to his starting deck. Everyone sees all the options and grabs them one at a time.

But that occurs only at the beginning of the game.
