LAST EDITED ON 07-11-08 AT 09:37 PM (EST)
PTTE is Pick To The End game. This game has been played for many seasons in the Survivor games forum. To keep things simple, I am borrowing from the rules well established at that forum and making a few minor adaptations:
SCORING: (Shamelessly stolen in part from Kircon's Survivor PTTE game!)
1) You do NOT want points... they're bad... it's like golf. Every point counts against you in the standings, so try to avoid them.
2) Points will be awarded to each boot, after each episode of Greatest American Dog (GAD). They will be awarded as the difference between where you thought this week's bootee would finish and where the bootee actually finished.
3) You will be given 5 penalty points every time you change your PTTE list.
You may change your list as many times as you want, up to the deadline - one minute prior to the start of the show. The last list at the time of deadline will be used.
Do NOT edit your post after the deadline... you may reply to your own post for a comment, but an edit will invalidate your entry if it is after show time in the Eastern Time Zone...
This is known as the Rebel Crown Rule in our football pool!
If you wish to change your list after an episode has aired... PLEASE do so in a NEW POST!
Use this format in the title of the post: "PTTE list change (date) episode X"
The time of the show is normally 8 PM EDT. Do NOT rely on Webby's clock as listed on this site... I will try to monitor it as it was NOT accurate the last time I looked.
4)The game will be open for anyone to join at anytime.
Entry is free for the first 2 weeks. First Show Bonus applies only to the first weeks entries.
If you do not enter before the second week - third episode, you will start with a score equivalent to 12 points per episode you missed.
FIRST WEEK BONUS:
To reward those who keep their original list I will offer a "Stick With Your List" Bonus. The longer you keep your list, the more points I will add or take-away.
Keep your list unchanged up to and including:
week 4 = -1 point
week 7 = -1 points
week 9 = -2 points
Final week = -2 points
We are starting with week 2 so...
Everyone who hops on board before the start of this coming week two episode gets credit for the first week's boot... Michael and Ezzie.
Week 2 goes to the second Boot. Week 3 is 3rd boot and so on.
I will subtract points from the scores only after the 4th, 7th, 9th, and Final week if you still have your original list.
The First Show Bonus will only apply to those entering the first week. (one minute before the second show: on 7-17-08)
I MIGHT not add or subtract points when you change your list, but will at least do so at the 4 weeks listed above.
If you have any questions post them in this thread or PM me.
Post your list and number them from 1 to 12. Sit back and enjoy Greatest American Dog!
You may change your first lists as many times as you want, up to 7:59 pm EDT on Thurs. 7-17-08.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
(Yikes, I hope I did this right!)
