The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2019 Edition - Island of the Idols

Welcome to the DVDTalk Survivor Game no. 22 for the Fall 2019 season!

The season premiere is Sept. 25 and this time it's Island of the Idols. Two idols from Survivor history (Boston Rob and Sandra) will return as advisors. I don't know what that means yet.




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 $40 Amazon.com gift certificate. 100% of the entry fees will go to the prize fund.

This season will once again be winner take all!

General rules:

This will be the contest thread for the entire season.

We will be using the first to post method for two rounds on draft night (Monday, Sept 23, 9 PM EDT, 6 PM PDT we will draft a woman and at 9:15/6:15 we will draft a man). You may post 1 and only 1 name during each round of 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 20 Survivors are...

Lairo Tribe:
Aaron
Chelsea
Dean
Elaine
Elizabeth
Karishma
Missy
Ronnie
Tom L.
Vince


Vokai Tribe:
Dan
Jack
Jamal
Janet
Jason
Kellee
Lauren
Molly
Noura
Tommy S.

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 23. 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. This rule also applies to the advisors Boston Rob and Sandra.

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, the prize will be reduced and the unclaimed survivor contestants may be selected by the first people eliminated from our game.

The first round of the draft will be held Monday, Sept 23 at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific). In the first round we will draft the women. The DVDTalk timestamp of your post determines validity. If you are too early, you will need to post again.

The second round will be 15 minutes later when we draft the men.

Good Luck!

Draft night advisory:

I am not a stickler for spelling on draft night, but keep in mind that this season we will have a Tom and a Tommy. Please be sure to post the right name if you are interested in these players

I'll bump this to the top. We're still looking for players. We have 14 open spots. Everyone is welcome to play. It makes watching Survivor a lot more fun.

I fear this game may have run its course. I sent PM invitations to everyone that has played the last four seasons and yet we only have 6 entries so far and three of us are running the game.

i do have a plan for running the game with fewer participants if we need to.

We could always do two picks per player if it comes down to it.

It's funny, I still FAR prefer to watch Survivor with a pick here, as well as Amazing Race. I'd even do it for Big Brother. That said, the issue for me is I don't find myself logging into the forum near as much as I used to. There are just so many other social networks grabbing my attention that going somewhere specific has become slightly inconvenient. :P #firstworldproblems

Yeah, I think the last time I played, I didn't even watch a single episode of Survivor. I like playing the game (it's pretty much the only reason I come back to the site), but I just got tired of the show. Maybe for next season if the rumors are true.

We need at least three more players to do two picks per player. Anyone interested in playing? New member/players are more than welcome to join us.

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2019 Edition - Island of the Idols

I am capping this season’s game at 10 entries. We will have a 2 round draft at 9 PM EDT and 9:15 PM EDT. The first round we will all draft a woman and then a man in the second round.

Any unsold picks will go into a pool and can be chosen by the first eliminations.

More details later. I will also update the main post for these changes.

Two spots remain.
