PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. 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. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

TBC

Bah, "To Be Continued" legs. Bah.

I guess it works for me personally, since I was in Washington D.C. last weekend (watching a very high-scoring Redskins-Bears game), but it's still no good for our purposes.

Week 4 Non-Results
1st place - Brandon/Adam (2x)
2nd place - ???/??? (1.5x)
3rd place - ???/??? (1.4x)
4th place - ???/??? (1.3x)
5th place - ???/??? (.7x)
6th place - ???/??? (.6x)
7th place - ???/??? (.5x)
8th place - ???/??? (0x)

Treading Water

As with every other year, any TBC episode's bets are thrown out and we will pretend like last week's entry never happened. We will, however, proceed to adding the new season gimmick for the season.

For the first time in Casino Game history, this week's Greatest Gainer Award and Perfect Bet Award is a 29-way tie. Way to go, all of us!

sarah1234 has maintained her lead for a second straight week, somehow, but don't worry, everyone. Nobody lost any ground!

Also, the TAR23 Casino Game is now closed to new entrants.

Introducing: The Payout Booster!

So, everyone knows that the 1st place payout is always 2x in a given week. Well, how would you like the chance to increase that payout?

This season, players will have the choice to increase the 1st place payout by up to 2x more (for a maximum of 4x).

However, this increase will not come for free. For every amount that you increase the 1st place payout, you will decrease the bottom ranks by that same amount. So what you're essentially doing is moving payout points away from the bottom of the table and moving it to the top.

For example, here's the payout table for Week 5.

Week 5 Payout Table
1st place - 2x
2nd place - 1.8x
3rd place - 1.6x
4th place - 1.2x
5th place - .8x
6th place - .4x
7th place - .2x
8th place - 0x

Max Individual Bet - 25 points

So if you choose to boost 1st place, I'll start taking out payout points from 7th place... Followed by 6th place if that runs multiplier points, followed by 5th, and so on.

For example, if you decided to only boost by .1x, the minimum amount, your payout table would look like this:

Week 5 Payout Table
1st place - 2.1x
2nd place - 1.8x
3rd place - 1.6x
4th place - 1.2x
5th place - .8x
6th place - .4x
7th place - .1x
8th place - 0x

And if you decided to boost up the whole 2x amount, it would look like this:

Week 5 Payout Table
1st place - 4.0x
2nd place - 1.8x
3rd place - 1.6x
4th place - .6x
5th place - 0x
6th place - 0x
7th place - 0x
8th place - 0x

(You'd take .2x away from 7th, .4x away from 6th, .8x from 5th, and .6x away from 4th = 2.0x total.)

So, as you can see, using the Booster to its full effect can start making the bottom half of the table look extremely scary! Obviously, you won't have anything to worry about if your picks still place well... But if they have a bad week, it could spell trouble. So be very careful!

Just make sure you indicate what your Booster is for the week, if you want to use it. Just say "Booster: 2x" or whatever next to your picks... You don't have to post your updated Payout Table, though, I'll just handle that. Your booster amount should be in increments of .1x as well.

The Booster bonus will end in the penultimate week of the game. For the finale, we will go back to a No Limit, 2x payout table game, like usual.

TAR23 Teams Remaining
Ally/Ashley
Brandon/Adam
Jason/Amy
Leo/Jamal
Nicky/Kim
Tim/Danny
Tim/Marie
Travis/Nicole

And bonus games will begin next week. Good luck everyone!


And let's hope the Booster doesn't destroy the game.
