Survivor Nicaragua -- Survivor Game Round 4

Goat3001 has stepped aside due to a heavy work load, so I have volunteered to run the game this season.

This will be our fourth Survivor game and so far it has been a lot of fun even though I have yet to get my pick as far as the jury.

The Survivor Game for Survivor Enthusiasts brings us The Battle of the Generations!




The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $2, everyone gets one Survivor to latch on to before the start of the season. That is your guy. You root for that Survivor. If that Survivor ends up going all the way, then YOU will win a $30 Amazon.com gift certificate.

General rules:

This will be the contest thread for the entire season.

I will be using JuryDuty's Big Brother game method of having everyone submit a top ten list of contestants in order of preference. I will randomly draw each list and give everyone their highest ranking available pick. This will eliminate the need to be signed on at a specific time to enter and hopefully everyone will get someone they like. Although if all 10 of your picks are gone, I will need to make a random assignment.

This season there are 2 Jimmys and 2 Kellys. If you are choosing any of these contestants, you must include their last initial or last name: Jimmy J, Jimmy T, Kelly B or Kelly S. Refer to this thread for the list of this season's Survivors: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/tv-talk/577...announced.html

Post now if you want to play and send me a Private Message (PM) with your top ten picks in order of preference.

I will contact you by with my PayPal information when I receive your PM. Also, please use the Personal Gift option as this will avoid seller fees.

Please, please, please! Include your DVDTalk screen name in a comment with your PayPal payment! This is necessary so that I can match people up with their payments.

Registration will remain open until all spots are sold. I will do the draw when this happens or Tuesday at 10 PM EDT whichever comes first.

If the contest doesn't sell out and an unclaimed Survivor wins, the prize will go to whoever has the highest finisher.

Good Luck!

Re: Survivor Nicaragua -- Survivor Game Round 4

Thanks again for taking over Damfino. I wasn't planning on playing this season but since you were kind enough to hold a spot for me, I'll have to take you up on the offer.

I'm in. I'm putting together my top 10 list right after I send this post. You already sent me your paypal info so that will be sent to you shortly as well.

Re: Survivor Nicaragua -- Survivor Game Round 4

bump.

Not sure if the slow down is because of the rule changes or the tight deadline to enter, but I have decided to keep this open until the last spot is sold or Tuesday evening whichever comes first.

Re: Survivor Nicaragua -- Survivor Game Round 4

It may be the economy. :P

When doing the Big Brother game this year, only half the spots went, so I ended up giving everyone their top 2 possible picks (just shuffled again between picking) and it was actually quite fun. Only thing is that it cuts the prize money in half.

Speaking for myself: Rule changes.
Don't care for the selection process.

We previously had everyone post their top pick at a specific time. This created confusion last season when people started posting lists instead of one pick.

The thinking behind the top ten idea was that more people would get someone they liked instead of taking whoever was left if they missed the scheduled time.

We still have time to go back to the old way, but out of fairness, I would need everybody that entered so far to agree to the change.

Comments welcome.

Re: Survivor Nicaragua -- Survivor Game Round 4

I vote no unless we are still going to be able to post more than one option when the time comes.

Nothing more annoying that losing out on your 2nd or 3rd options because someone beat you to your first choice by half second.
