The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2017 Edition - Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers

Welcome to the DVDTalk Survivor Game no. 18 for the Fall 2017 season!

The season premiere is Sept. 27 and this time it's Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers with an all new cast!





The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $5, everyone chooses one Survivor to latch on to before the reunion show. That is your guy. You root for that Survivor. If that Survivor ends up going all the way, then YOU will win a $70 Amazon.com gift certificate. 100% of the entry fees will go to the prize fund.

Second and Third place will receive $10 Amazon GCs!

General rules:

This will be the contest thread for the entire season.

We will be using the first to post method on draft night (Monday Sept 25, 9 PM EDT, 6 PM PDT). You may post 1 and only 1 name during the draft. This is strictly first-come-first-serve. Anybody posting a list will only have rights to the first name in the post. If that name has already been taken, you will need to post again.

This season's 18 Survivors are...

Heroes:
Alan
Ben
John
Chrissy
Ashley
Katrina

Healers:
Jessica
Roark
Cole
Joe
Desi
Mike

Hustlers:
Patrick
Alexandrea
Simone
Devon
Lauren
Ryan


Refer to the CBS web site for more information on this season's contestants


Post now if you want to play and I will contact you with my PayPal information by PM.

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM EDT Monday Sept 25. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

Bopper Rule: If for whatever reason, an announced Survivor contestant that you drafted is replaced by a substitute during the show, you will get the substitute in place of your original pick.

Please do not edit or delete posts during the draft, if your pick has already been taken or you were too early, you will need to post again. Screen captures will be taken during the draft and anyone caught deleting or editing a post will be given the last pick (AKA the Quack play) as a penalty. This rule will be strictly enforced.

The Borg are not a species.

Love Connection is a game show.

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. Also, please use the "Send money to a friend" option as this will avoid seller fees.

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

The draft will be held Monday, Sept 25 at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific). The DVDTalk timestamp of your post determines validity. If you are too early, you will need to post again.

Good Luck!

Where's JuryDuty?

My friend and partner in this endeavor, JuryDuty is taking a leave of absence this season to spend some quality time with his family. His reasoning is good and I support his decision. He is also hoping to return to the game for a future season.

With that in mind, I need a new graphic artist to help out this season. I need one of my loyal regulars in both the Survivor and Amazing Race games to step up and volunteer for this. I would prefer someone who has participated in at least the last 4 Survivor and Amazing Race games. (You know who you are!)

What's in it for you? The main perk is that you will receive pre-registration status in all future Survivor and Amazing Race games unless you opt out.

All above are in.

Please don't send any money yet. Responses have been coming slower than usual even though I sent PM invitations to all of the regulars.

You should PM GatorDeb. I think she wanted in last year, but didn't discover the thread until after the draft.

You're in and payment info sent to all.

I'm hoping the slow response is because of the weekend.

It says that the winner gets a $70 Amazon gift card but it also says that 100% of the entry fees goes to the prize funds. There is second, third place, etc? What if more than 14 people enter?

The game is limited to 18 people. ($90 total prize money) First place wins $70. Second and Third win $10 each. If we don't get 18 people then I believe the prize money will be adjusted.

lwhy? Is correct, if the game doesn't sell out the prizes will be reduced. This has only happened once before in the early years of the contest. We usually sell out now when I offer 2nd chance entries.

You know you only have to win once every 14 seasons or so to break even

Ooooohhhh I see we each get to pick 1 survivor and no one else gets it so no ties, and you have until the end of the first episode to pick a choice but the longer you wait until the end of the episode, the more change you give someone else to pick that name. Brilliant.

So you have from the second the first ep starts to air until it ends?

No we have a draft on Monday, Sept 25 at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific). The first post to post at that time gets the player they want. Most players are picked within 30mins of the draft.
