Pretty simple, you pick 1 story, and mark it as a keystone (usually a past story that was completed as a team). That story becomes an 8.

The idea is you get input from *everybody*, and everyone is estimating on the entire story, everything it takes to complete the story. Ideally you'll track time it takes to do the story and compare it with the estimates and get a Beta. This Beta is how you measure how mature and consistent your process is. Management can use Beta to estimate how risky a project is, based on the team's beta and the amount of points an epic is.
