We could try it next year if the same problems happen this year. I’m in a patron group for Challenge Mania and they do a similar game to this with a random draw. Whatever we can do to keep the game alive.

We can run the game as usual now and maybe consider the lottery for the next season?

And as a side game, maybe do the lottery as an experiment to see how it turns out. Assign each Survivor contestant a number, put the DVDTalk players in a list generator, shuffle the list three times, then the first name gets contestant 1, second name gets contestant 2, and so on. No prizes this time around... but we see how it shakes out.

Just a thought.

OK I will keep that in mind, but for this season we will keep the first to post draft method.

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

Last season there was a suggestion that I list the initial tribe assignments in the main post if that information was available before the premiere. Since that is the case I have updated the first post with the tribe assignments.

Gotcha.

Iím still looking for 7 more entries. The game isnít likely to sell out, so later in the week I will schedule a leftover draft for the ones not taken in the initial draft.

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

It doesn’t look like we are going to get anymore entries, so we will now have a leftover draft a half hour after the first draft at 930/630 If anybody is interested in a 2nd pick, post now. The payment info is the same.

I'll take a second pick and I'll take the quack pick in the Amazing Race draft if no one wants that last spot.

Contestants this year all seem pretty normal. So something must be up.
