Wow. When the whole house gets behind something they really mean the whole house.
Welcome to OR Welcome back to Hamster Phantasy!
...a game to play which challenges you to remain an avid viewer of BigBrother. Even if Time Warner cable is holding a full scale intervention.
If'n you've made an entry for a previous eviction you can skip over the next little bit down to the results/entry.
If'n you're new to the game let me explain a little bit first.
| The cast will be known as hamsters and your job is to pick the best phantasy team of hamsters to help accrue the most amount of points by the end.|
Each new player (you) will have a phantasy team roster with 4 slots available.
Pick the 4 hamsters that you think will help make you the most points.
The possible points are...
Wins Head of Household (HOH): 20 points
Is named MVP (MVP): 15 points
Wins Power Of Veto (POV): 10 points
Nominee who is Saved (SAVE NOM): 5 points
Nominee who is Evicted (EVICT NOM): 2 points
None of the above (FLOAT): -1 point
And as much like in the show, the promise being that "Floaters" will not win the game. They will not be receiving points in this game either.
So pick those hamsters whom you think will make the biggest moves.
Should be simple, right?
Well, the show also promises... "Expect the Unexpected" ...and I'd be irresponsible to not also state that I too believe in that motto.
I have the capabilities of throwing a few obstacles into the well worn paths from time to time. Stay vigilant.
4th Eviction Results
Judd: 20 (HOH)
Elissa: 15 (POV&NOM)
Aaryn: 5 (Safe Nom)
GinaMarie: 5 (Safe Nom)
Kaitlin: 2 (Evictee)
everyone else: -1 (Floaters)
Top scorer this week?
That would be ... Wallflower! A mere 3 points off the record weekly high score and it propels her up the list quite a bit.
However, personofinterest still sits in 1st place overall. With D'Abby taking it easy in 2nd and Aruba capping out the Top3.
|PLAYER||Hamster 1||H1(x3) Score||Hamster 2||H2 Score||Hamster 3||H3 Score||Hamster 4||H4 Score||This Week||Last Week||TOTAL|
|P of I||elissa||45||howard||-1||kaitlin||2||amanda||-1||45||137||182|
Deadline for entry: Thursday, August 1st @ 9pm BOARDTIME.
The MVP twist has been temporarily benched and in it's place we bring in the next twist.
We all know how "floaters" are bad. It was pounded into our heads from the get-go.
But I'd counter with the fact that 3 of the four evictions so far have been of big gamers.
And where are the floaters? Floating about the house. Par usual.
Which leads us to this dreaded decision making twist.
One which may have you regretting your choice immediately after you make it.
I was checking the spreads and wouldn't you know it, not a single player has EVER amassed a team of 4 non-floaters.
Those with 3 of 4: Snidget (twice) ~ P of I (thrice) ~ Aruba ~ tribe ~ Rebel
On the other end a few players have filled their teams entirely with floaters.
and those of us with 0 of 4: Rebel ~ suzzee ~ Snidget ~ Wall66 ~ tribe
Which means, historically, it seems a bit easier to fill up on floaters than it is to fill up on the power hamsters.
Therefore I have created an alternative to the "normal" entry.
The logistics are this...
You will have to choose between Normal 4 Team OR 5 Floaters Team
With "Normal 4 Team" you need to make an entry as you have been doing, with 4 hamsters whom you hope will make big moves and supply you with points. No Floaters allowed. Just like you have been trying to do since the beginning.
Pointwise: "Normal 4 Team" will accrue their normal points for HOH, POV, MVP(if they have it) NOMs and Evictee.
However, if you get all 4 to actually make points, no floaters, I will DOUBLE your weekly points.
With "5 Floaters" you need to make an entry with 5 hamsters. 5 whom you hope will NOT make any big moves and "float" through the episode.
Pointwise: "5 Floaters Team", will receive all normal points UNLESS your team is FULL of floaters. IF you manage to name 5 floaters I will award you with a straight up 60 points. If not, then everyone on your team will receive normal points and penalties.
"Normal 4 Team": Hamster 1 ~ Hamster 2 ~ Hamster 3 ~ Hamster 4
"5 Floaters Team": Hamster 1 ~ Hamster 2 ~ Hamster 3 ~ Hamster 4 ~ Hamster 5
The vince3 memorial list of remaining hamsters:
Aaryn ~ Amanda ~ Andy ~ Candice ~ Elissa ~ GinaMarie
Helen ~ Howard ~ Jessie ~ Judd ~ McCrae ~ Spencer
* None of this is meant to confuse, but...
* I believe the max for a successful Normal entry would be 100 points, 80 without MVP... lowest would be 34.
* Without revealing strategies, it's also possible to acheive a max of 55 points for misplaying the 5 Floaters Team.
* And of course, it's also possible to receive a -4 for misplaying a Normal entry.
* Don't read too much into these tid-bits. As I have already done.
* It simply is another strategy for those of us who think that it'll be easier to name 5 floaters than name 4 power players.
* Or will it? Ack!
