The teams selections varied from year to year, with sports journalists selecting the teams during the first years while later teams were selected by fans and coaches. The teams buildup also varied, sometimes splitting the players to teams based on geography (Players from Suðurnes or the Capital Region versus the rest of the country) or pitting domestic players against foreign players.
The All-Star day also featured a dunk contest, a three-point contest and a celebrity game.
