Hello everyone! I thought it would be a fun idea to create a 2nd Survivor game for the show's 26th season. For those of you who are also participating in the pool, this will give you an additional way to stay involved on the board even if your choice to win gets voted out prematurely. Here's how the game works:
-Using 5 categories, predict where each of the 20 castaways will place in the game (First Boots, Pre-Merge, Jury Members, Finalists, and the Winner). The goal of the game is to correctly predict where every contestant will place in the competition.
-Based on how well you predict where each player lands, you will earn points for each of your correct guesses. Even if you correctly predict who wins the season, you may not necessarily win the game - the goal is to make the most correct predictions for where each player ranks. The point breakdown is as follows:
1 Winner: 95 points (5% chance of guessing correctly)
2 Finalists: 90 points each (10% chance)
4 First Boots: 80 points each (20% chance)
5 Pre-Mergers: 75 points each (25% chance)
8 Jury Members: 60 points each (40% chance)
*Obviously, the number of Jury Members for this season has not been revealed yet. Once it is, I will make any necessary changes to the categories and calculate everyone's scores accordingly.
Note: You do not have to correctly predict the exact booting order to earn points; you just have place contestants in the right category they fall under (Example: If the player you predict to be voted out first sticks around, you can still receive points if that player is one of the next 3 to go).
However, if you manage to correctly guess the players of an entire category you will receive an extra 50 points. If you correctly predict the boot orderof a category, you will earn an extra 70 points (These bonuses apply to every category but the Finalists and Winner).
If you would like, you can provide brief explanations for each of the castaways' placement on your list- it may make the game more enjoyable once the show airs to see whether or not you're initial perceptions about the contestants were right.
I will be updating the scores every week and encourage your comments along the way- hopefully we can have some fun with this!
