THE RULES

Rule #1: I make the rules and may adjust any or all of them at any time in my exclusive and unreviewable discretion for whatever reason I want.

Rule #2: I will announce, in this thread, any special rules that apply in any given round. This is really the only thread that the participants need to focus on. Spectators (non-participants) are more than welcome to post insightful comments, speculation, analysis or taunts on the thread.

Rule #3: Unless the rules for a particular round state otherwise, each player on each team gets ONE vote per round. That vote may not be split into fractions. ONE vote. Period. In order to make your vote, send it to me in a private message. Feel free to add any editorial comments you desire. Please put the word "Vote" somewhere in the PM caption.

Rule #4: Unless otherwise specified, every "living" (ie not eliminated) player MUST file a "legal" vote every round. For the first 6 rounds, everyone gets one "mulligan" which you should save for an emergency. In other words, each of you is entitled to "miss" one (and only one) vote somewhere in the first 6 rounds. If you miss two votes in the first six rounds you are OUT.

Rule #5: As a general rule, we will have 5 votes per week, all of them usually due by Noon, Denver time, Monday through Friday. Each round will last roughly 24 hours, and you can PM me your vote at any time during that round. In an extreme case, I will allow players to file a vote ONE ROUND in advance, but this is at your own risk, because if you pick a target that turns out to be illegal, that's a "missed vote."

Rule #6: In your vote, you must clearly name and specify your "target." I do not accept "indefinite" votes for things like "whoever has the votes from the most other people" or "whoever George votes for" or "whoever voted against me last round", etc.

Rule #7: You may not vote for yourself. Nor may you vote against any player who has IMMUNITY for that particular round.

Rule #8: You may not vote for a non-player (such as the Mole, or Taco John, or Barrack Obama.) Nor may you vote for someone who has been kicked off the island, to kick him even further off.

Rule #9: After the votes are all in (or after the deadline for the round expires) I will publish the results on this thread, including who voted for who. There may be an exception - - called a blackout round - - when only the results, but not the breakdown will be published. Any such blackouts will be announced at the start of the round.

Rule #10: For Rounds ONE THROUGH FIVE, you may only cast your vote against a member of the opposing team. This means if you are on The Orange Dragon Team, you can only cast your vote against a member of the Blue Tiger Team. If you are a member of the Blue Tiger Team, you can only cast your vote against a member of the Orange Dragon Team. This may continue for a long time. All I'm saying now is that this is definitely the rule for Rounds ONE THROUGH FIVE.

Rule #11: I will generally NOT reveal anything about the status of an ongoing vote until all the votes are in or until the deadline expires. I might chuckle and chortle or make cryptic & misleading remarks. I might sometimes "leak" out information or "clues" about upcoming rounds (rules changes) to the Mole, or to any poster who is sufficiently entertaining on the main thread. Information is power. Watch your REP boxes.

Rule #12: Tiebreakers. Until further notice, in order to determine who got the "most votes" and the second-most, etc. the following will apply:

(a) a player who has missed a vote will be considered a higher vote-getter than one who hasn't.

(b) the number of prior votes against a player. A player who has a lot of votes against him from previous rounds will be considered to be a higher vote-getter, for purposes of breaking ties, than one who has received fewer prior votes.

(c) the first player to have received a vote against him/her in that particular round will be considered a higher vote getter, for tie breaking purposes, than one whose first adverse vote was received by me later on.




Sometimes it is good to be the highest vote-getter; sometimes NOT.

In Rounds ONE through FIVE (at least) the highest vote-getter on each team will STAY in the game. In addition, they will be awarded IMMUNITY against votes on the following round. The second-place vote getters on each team will be destroyed, eliminated, kicked off the island, etc., etc.


The Specific Rules for ROUND ONE will be posted by me on this thread on Friday, March 7. The deadline for ROUND ONE Voting will be Noon, Denver Time, Monday, March 10.*

Play nice and have a good time.


* Edit: Please be aware that Daylight Savings Time goes into effect over the weekend, so that all clocks in Denver will be moved up one hour between now and the 10th.

Strategy tips for newbs:

1. Information is power. Disinformation is dangerous.

2. In previous episodes of Survivor, piling on - stampedes - dogpiles - whatever you want to call them - made things a little too predictable. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out where a stampede is headed. Figuring out where the secondary stampede is going might require more intution and effort. And it unfortunately does lend itself to more backstabbing & misdirection. Just because you see a big stampede headed in one direction doesn't mean you're safe. You could be killed by as little as one or two stray, random, thoughtless votes. Make lots of friends but don't hesitate to shove them in front of the bus if things get sticky. You can always explain that you heard they were being ganged up on and just wanted to push them higher up the ladder and out of harm's way.

Someone mentioned that we should disable all the PM functions for players in order to force negotiations into the open. While that would be a delightful idea, it wouldn't stop people who have previously exchanged e-mail addresses.

But you are always welcome to post other people's dirty laundry on this thread.

Strategy tips for newbs:

1. Information is power. Disinformation is dangerous.

2. In previous episodes of Survivor, piling on - stampedes - dogpiles - whatever you want to call them - made things a little too predictable. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out where a stampede is headed. Figuring out where the secondary stampede is going might require more intution and effort. And it unfortunately does lend itself to more backstabbing & misdirection. Just because you see a big stampede headed in one direction doesn't mean you're safe. You could be killed by as little as one or two stray, random, thoughtless votes. Make lots of friends but don't hesitate to shove them in front of the bus if things get sticky. You can always explain that you heard they were being ganged up on and just wanted to push them higher up the ladder and out of harm's way.

From my "Lonely Hearts PM Column"

Old Dude, I have sent out PMs to several people asking for an alliance, but noone [sic] has answered except Dagmar and he told me to bug off. What am I doing wrong?

Dear [deleted]. You aren't doing anything wrong. Most players in Survivor don't read their PMs because it spoils the suspense. Or maybe they are planning to kill you, and are going to pretend later on that they never got your PM. If I were you, I'd simply write again, with a threatening caption on your PM and a list of random targets.
--------------

Old Dude, I've got this guy who keeps PMing me, asking me to be his friend and promising not to vote for me if I don't vote for him. Should I tell him that we're on the same team and he can't vote for me anyway? Or should I just accept the offer?

Dear [deleted]. The proper Survivor etiquette, in a complicated situation like this, would be to accept the offer, gain the player's confidence, ask who needs to be killed, then forward the PM to the named victim.
----------------


Old Dude, I'm confused. I want to kill [deleted] but so does everyone else. And if too many of us vote for him, he lives. So I have to vote against someone else, but what happens if everyone thinks the same way?

Dear [deleted], The same way as what?

-------------------

Old Dude, this is a tough situation. Months and months ago I entered an alliance with [deleted] and [deleted] and [deleted] and a few other guys, just so I could use them as pawns and stab them in the back at the first opportunity. But now the whole group is fighting and arguing and getting more and more paranoid because one of them was a spy all along and we just don't know who. Now what do I do?

Dear [deleted] Falsely confess to all the others that you were the spy, beg their forgiveness and promise it won't happen again. Whichever one doesn't try to kill you at the first opportunity is probably the spy.

Rumor is TheDave is the Mole.

I knew who the mole was for seasons 1 & 2... now I have no idea.

Alright I'll come clean, I used to be the mole but i forgot my mole password. A some what embarrassing situation followed and OD revoked my access. It was an unfortunate mistake on my part... I had no idea that OD had a Lithuanian midget (sorry, little person) as his cousin.

I meant no disrespect.

From my "Lonely Hearts PM Column"



Dear [deleted]. You aren't doing anything wrong. Most players in Survivor don't read their PMs because it spoils the suspense. Or maybe they are planning to kill you, and are going to pretend later on that they never got your PM. If I were you, I'd simply write again, with a threatening caption on your PM and a list of random targets.
--------------



Dear [deleted]. The proper Survivor etiquette, in a complicated situation like this, would be to accept the offer, gain the player's confidence, ask who needs to be killed, then forward the PM to the named victim.
----------------




Dear [deleted], The same way as what?

-------------------



Dear [deleted] Falsely confess to all the others that you were the spy, beg their forgiveness and promise it won't happen again. Whichever one doesn't try to kill you at the first opportunity is probably the spy.

I've actually seen alot of theses situations Ha!

All characters in this story are purely fictional and any resemblance they may show to any actual, factual people is pure coincidence (I.E. though Smalltowngirl resembles a pintsized Lithuanian circus freak she is not OD's cousin). The actions, events and sequence of events that comprise this story are completely fabricated and should they, in any way, resemble actions, events or sequences of events in any actual persons life, it is a mere coincidence.

How many times have I told you that I prefer the term 'vertically challenged'.

OD still thinks he's the family patriarch cuz he's the tallest but I just received my Huggy Bear platforms off ebay and now I'm the bomb!

Old Dude
03-05-2008, 04:52 PM
Old Dude. I am pleased to say I have come up with an unbeatable mathematical formula for winning this game. Please don't tell anyone. Here's how it works. I will announce that I have written down all the names of the opposing team on little pieces of paper and tossed them into a hat. Each round, I will keep pulling out names until I pull the name of a "legal" target. I will vote against that person. Then I will tear that paper up and put all the rest back in, except for the dead people. So everyone else knows that once I vote against them, they never have to worry about me voting for them again. This way, I minimize my threat level. No one can get mad at me because it's random and nothing personal. And once I vote against someone, they might be mad for a moment, but their hatred will soon expire, because they will realize, at that point, that I don't pose a threat to them ever again. So they will have bigger fish to fry. As the game goes on, the pile of people that I have "nicked" in this manner will grow, and my threat level will get smaller and smaller to the group as a whole. What's even better is that the jurors can't even get justifiably mad at me, and I will probably not be part of the "execution team" very often. What's not to like? It's a perfect system if I can just get through a couple rounds.

Dear [deleted]. That would be an ingenious plan except for this part:

" their hatred will soon expire"

The problem is that they already hate you. A lot. And so do their friends. Even the people who don't hate you now will hate you as soon as you announce that you have "systemized" your mathematical killing system with no regard for humanity. Regardless of any of their pleas or protests.

Even if they don't hate you, they'll still kill you, because they don't trust you to stick to your system. They will constantly be worried that you will deviate from it whenever it suits your purpose, and none of them will really believe that your "draws" are totally random.

And they would be right, wouldn't they, you sneaky little snit.

03-06-2008, 10:31 AM
Okay ...here we go ...

http://www.solaractiveintl.com/tshirtimages/caviar_round_one_outdoor.jpg


Rules for Round One.

Each player gets one vote this round. The vote must be sent to me, via private message, no later than Noon, Denver time, Monday, March 10.

Members of the Orange Dragon Team may only cast their votes at members of the Blue Tiger Team, and vice versa. You may not vote against yourself or against another member of your own team.

You may not split your vote into halves or quarters, etc. Please make sure to designate clearly who the target of your vote is. Don't make me guess.

No official results will be posted or otherwise released until after the deadline expires on March 10. So don't bother asking. It will probably take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes after the deadline expires for me to tally up and post the results. (There are a lot of players this year.) I will try to have the results posted before 1 p.m. Denver time.

The highest vote-getter on each team will WIN IMMUNITY from any votes in Round Two.

The second highest vote-getter on each team will be eliminated.
Thus, two participants will be eliminated, one from each team, by 1 pm Monday afternoon. Try not to be one of those people.

Tiebreakers will apply, as set forth in the first post on this thread.

Voting may begin at noon, Denver time, today. (It is currently 8:37 am)

For your reference:

That should be plenty of time to negotiate & strategize. Or throw darts at a board or whatever floats your boat.

I guess if it were me, I'd be trying to get together with teammates to try to figure out how to most effectively deal with the other team.

But I might be even more motivated to talk to the other team, because they are the ones who have the ability to take me out. Kinda' strange, isn't it?

I might try to stay quiet and hunker down and hope people just forget about me. Sometimes that works out for awhile. But it would kinda suck if most of the voters went after a higher profile target and then I got knocked off with a couple stray votes that were just enough to put me in the second-place crosshairs.

I think I'd also be trying to figure out who is in which alliance.

But wow. With 33 other people to deal with, and most of them either holding back or straddling fences or paranoid or not quite invested in the game yet, or purposely acting as spies and information brokers, or involved in only tentative but contradictory alliances just waiting to pop... it might not be that easy to get a very clear picture right now, huh?

Plus, you know, if you start sending around PMs saying let's all go out and kill Joe Blow, it's a pretty safe bet that Joe Blow will hear about that one way or another and do something unpleasant in response.

On the other hand, maybe Joe Blow already thinks you're out to get him, based on other people's lies or sheer paranoia.

Classic Survivor situation:

A & B form early alliance. They are solid. A & B realize that there are some big schools of fish floating around and it might be wise to expand it to 3. So they approach C.

C is already in an alliance with D. He has no particular grudge against A & B, so he's happy to join A & B, but he realizes he's the odd man out if things get nasty, so he doesn't tell A & B about D. But no harm, right? He figures that D is just sort of a bonus anyway, and what A & B don't know won't hurt them.

Then A, B & C get an alliance offer from E & F who are themselves feeling paranoid and out of the loop, and looking for some warm place to hide in the numbers. It's a friendly arms-length alliance - and no big deal ... until A,B, E and F all decide it might be a good idea to take out D who they think might somehow be connected with G, H, I and J.

So plans are made. But now C panics. Oh my gosh. Can't have D killed. So C and D tell G, H, I and J that they are being targeted by A, B, E and F. And C and D then join them, thereby screwing over the other four.

From A's standpoint, his very second "recruit" was a bloody traitor. How could the guy turn on him so fast?

The bigger the alliances get, the more likely it is they will snap at some point and the louder the bang it makes when they do.

Another Survivor Scenario: The Meatgrinder.

You need a partner for this, and it's hard to set up, but the basic idea is to find two roughly equal alliances and then each of you "joins" one side. And both of you quietly fan the flames of paranoia against the other side, without ever actually putting yourself in the captain's chair. And, after all, you don't fit in the captain's chair anyway, because you're just sort of a straggler and you aren't quite as tight with the others. And they don't completely trust you anyway, because you aren't in ther "core" alliance ... but on the oter hand, they are desperate for numerical advantage so they will take whatever help they can get.

Your buddy is doing the same thing on the other side. And the idea is to force the two armies to go to war ... naturally knocking off the perceived leaders ... back and forth and back and forth ... until the meatgrinder takes out everyone in between.

Rinse, repeat.

Another Survivor Scenario: the camp follower.

We'll call this guy letter Z. No one really knows letter Z very well. They don't talk to him. He hardly ever gets a PM. As big alliances naturally form, both sides naturally figure that Z must be either neutral (true) or in the other one.

Z is simply wandering around trying to find a dogpile that he can jump on so he won't be on the bottom. He has no strategy beyond that. Since no one ever talks to him, he assumes that most of the other players aren't talking either, and everyone is just cruising around looking for the pile. Eventually, he sees patterns that start to form, seemingly out of nothing, and he starts to tag consistently with what looks like a group.

They are happy to have him, but they don't really trust him much, so there is still minimal communication (because he might be a spy). meanwhile, the other side just naturally assumes that he's in deep with his group, and they won't talk to him at all. Unless it's to trade info ... but he doesn't really have any.

Sooner or later he is rubbed out for being in the wrong gang, even though he never joined it.

Dangerous roles:

1. The Organizer. Big target. On your back. All the time.

2. The Islolationist. Cheap kill. You can be taken out at will, without ramifications.

3. Mystery Man. They will all assume you're on the other side. Nothing like making everyone your paranoid enemy.

Therefore, the safest role is "Rank and File."

Ok according to OD's rules if the Orange team all votes for the same person; that person would obviously be the top vote getter and receive immunity the next round. That means the other 16 members of the Blue team would be kicked out of the game as they would all be 2nd vote getters. Follow me here.

Then the next round everyone on the Orange team would either have to vote for an illegal target (immunity) or miss the vote.

Then in round 3 The Orange team would have to either miss the vote agains (thus getting disqualified) or vote for the one remaining member of the Blue team thus giving him immunity again.

Then in round 4 the Orange team would either have to again vote against an illegal target (immunity) or miss the vote and either way being all disqualified.

I was thinking the same way Hotrod has just turned the tables and the game back on Old Dude. Finally a loophole

I believe there is a rule at the beginning for tiebreakers....in which case, the second person would fall under that rule. Thus, we would still only have one person eliminated from each team.

Good try at confusing the masses, though.

And, the biggest stipulation in the set of rules...is this one:

Rule #1: I make the rules and may adjust any or all of them at any time in my exclusive and unreviewable discretion for whatever reason I want.

Ok according to OD's rules if the Orange team all votes for the same person; that person would obviously be the top vote getter and receive immunity the next round. That means the other 16 members of the Blue team would be kicked out of the game as they would all be 2nd vote getters. Follow me here.

Then the next round everyone on the Orange team would either have to vote for an illegal target (immunity) or miss the vote.

Then in round 3 The Orange team would have to either miss the vote agains (thus getting disqualified) or vote for the one remaining member of the Blue team thus giving him immunity again.

Then in round 4 the Orange team would either have to again vote against an illegal target (immunity) or miss the vote and either way being all disqualified.

:)

Technically, you may be right, because none of the three published tiebreakers would apply in that situation (to break the second place tie.)

But see Rule Number 1.

So, rather than just rebooting the whole game, I'd just institute a 4th tiebreaker, which would be that the last person to send in their vote (among all the second place people) would be considered the "top" vote-getter.

In fact that's such a good idea, that I'm adopting it right now!
