Well, sort of. This is the game that shows everyone's opinions on the new candidates, and how the end result will compare or contrast to how everyone's would normally vote for those candidates after we better get to know them in 13 Days.
For a preview of each contestant, including pictures to match the candidates, you can find that at Jared's blog or the main NBCUMV site.
How to Play
In case you're new to the game: All of the very important rules are right here. Sorry I can't fit the rules as a whole here, there's nothing I can do about that. I'll demonstrate how to submit and make any necessary changes along the way if and when there's an error in taking or giving points. In addition, ignore the Non-Elimination Info; the new info is explained right here:
- Finally, in an attempt to "channel" the Non-Elimination bonus, during the TOG level-increase when candidates could end of being eliminated, someone can spare any candidate from being out of the game. Since I'm a believer of "once you're out, you stay out," I'm no longer having people come back into the game when they've been eliminated (and come to think of it, no one ever decided to bring them back, so no harm done). For example, when the TOG levels increase, and a candidate or candidates is or are in the hole or under the mandatory points necessary to move on, someone can decide to spare that candidate or those candidates.
- However, this can only happen 4 times throughtout the entire game, as in 4 times total (not 4 per participant), and it can only occur after the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Elimination Points, or upon a candidate reaching 100, 300, and 600 points respectively.
- Also, and this is pretty important, after the first TOG Increase/Elimination Point where the leading candidate reaches 100 points, for the first level, no may only spare up to two candidates (thus saving the other two or more for the 2nd and 3rd TOG Level Increase where the leading candidate would be at 300 and 600 respectively).
Here's the list of Participants. This game features the Season Five Folks, starring:
Remember, you may choose to take or give points to up to five candidates, and in addition you may play the game up to twice a day. However, one set of TOG'S per post, and you can't double post.
I'll get things started, to show y'all the proper format for this game:
TOG Level I: 5 and 10
Still in the Interview Process:
Out of the Game:
If you all have any questions, please ask. This new game is a change from the Suvival Games IMO, and hopefully it'll work out. I'll try to be around to guide everyone through this newer game. For more information on the contestants, there's a thread right here that features the same links above and some opinions from the others on who has a chance, their early favorites, and other stuff. Good luck!
