Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines.

The Pointless Alliance

This has been a weird season. All of that Brendon/Rachel drama the past two weeks, and then it ends up being the Cowboys who get screwed over. Strange.

Gotta say, that bull Detour was pretty entertaining to watch, mostly for how absurdly physical it got. Its goofiness reminded me a little of the challenges they would have on The Mole back in the day, which is always a plus for me.

Week 10 Results
1st place - Dave/Connor (2x)
2nd place - Brendon/Rachel (1.6x)
3rd place - Leo/Jamal (even)
4th place - Caroline/Jennifer (.4x)
5th place - Jet/Cord (0x)

Neato.

I apologize, I have to be brief this week as I am heading out of town tomorrow (returning Saturday night) and am trying to get this entry out the door. It was another hit-or-miss week overall... A bunch of decent scores, a bunch of flame outs.

Unfortunately, the cowboys elimination ended up eliminating two more players, tribephyl and MzTee. They seemed like a safe bet, so it's a pretty understandable miss. Thanks for playing, both of you.

This week's Greatest Gainer Award goes to Jims03, who climbed 3 ranks overall. Nice job, me.

The Perfect Bet Award also goes to Jims03 (1.8x), who made a decent Dave/Connor all-in (but whiffed on the bonus). Georganna (1.7x) had a great week too, nailing the bonus and doing a sneaky ignore team bet.

Leaderboard
1. Georganna - 4646 (Leo/Jamal)
2. michiganlargefan - 3796
3. Yogi - 2778 (Leo/Jamal)
4. IanQuentin - 2044 (Brendon/Rachel)
5. flipxcyd01 - 1915 (Dave/Connor)
6. Jims03 - 1476 (Leo/Jamal)
7. louislam - 1297
8. Ontheroadagain1 - 1000 (Leo/Jamal)
9. coldbrewer - 938
10. taffnic - 722
11. Molaholic - 500
12. sarah12345 - 470 (Brendon/Rachel)
13. bbenz - 246
14. pepperz - 228
15. Chiubakka - 200 (Brendon/Rachel)
16. starshine - 192
17. tribephyl - 0
18. MzTee - 0

Georganna has taken the top spot in quite a fashion! We still have two weeks to go, so we'll see if that separation continues or if we're going to end up with another Final Jeopardy game theory finish.

Week 11 Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.3x
3rd place - .7x
4th place - 0x

Max Individual Bet - 1000 points
Ignore Price - 1x

Nice round 1000 points.

Note on Ignore Teams

There will be no ignore teams in the finale week, and there will be no locked-out teams either. That means, if you ignore a team this week, you will be allowed to bet on that same team next week too. Because of this, I upped the Ignore Price up to 1x this final week (bringing 2nd place down to 1x if you ignore).

Bonus Game - Consistency is Key

After recycling games constantly for several years now, here I am with an extra week and no bonus game. So I had to think of something new.

This week, players may bet not only on where they will finish, but also whether they think teams will be Consistent or not.

A "consistent" team is a team who:
1) Finishes the Detour...
2) Finishes the Roadblock...
3) Finishes the leg...

...All in the same ranking throughout the leg.

It could be a team who just dominates the leg and finishes each individual component in 1st place. Or it could be a team that just drags behind the whole time. Or it could be that 2nd or 3rd place team. Who knows?

Here's how it works. You'll place a bet of a certain number of points. The max bet in this game is 150 points.

And then you can make Consistent predictions on as many teams as you want. You can bet that they'll be either consistent or inconsistent. The more teams you make predictions for, the higher the potential payout. But if you get a single one of your predictions wrong, you lose the entire bet and score 0x. So there's a risk-reward factor here.

Remember, the wager amount is for a group of teams, kind of like in the SAME/DIFFERENT game. A sample wager could look like:

Bonus Game - 150 points
Dave/Connor - Consistent
Caroline/Jennifer - Inconsistent

Here's the Payout Table for this game.

Consistent Payout Table
All 4 Correct - 10x
All 3 Correct - 7x
All 2 Correct - 4x
All 1 Correct - 2x
At Least One Wrong - 0x

Max Bet - 150 points

TAR24 Teams Remaining
Brendon/Rachel
Caroline/Jennifer
Dave/Connor
Leo/Jamal

Good luck!

Dang it

Realized that I hadn't posted just as I switched over to CBS from FOOD & Cutthroat Kitchen.

Hopefully I will remember next week.
