LAST EDITED ON 10-22-11 AT 05:41 AM (EST)
Okay, the buzz had to be dropped. The hype had to be released.
As a part of my upcoming mini-series stint on SOTS I was going to start the GOTS.
The Game of the Spoilers.
It was thought up when the recent grievances over the voting thread had come up.
And since we're sticklers for rules, guidelines, traditions and such I figured it's time to go ahead with the idea but on a somewhat expanded scale.
It's being planned as part of a cross-forum "integration" of using both the Games and Spoilers forums with a thresd in spoilers covering the questions and the discussion of trying to figure them out, while the entries/results would be posted in the Games forum.
Yes folks, time to venture outside the Spoiler dome. It's Terra Nova out there.
In an attempt to beat Maxx with his full info reveal attuned to an irregular release schedule, there will be an adjusted deadline and a set of Pre-Maxx questions with an additional set of Pre-Show questions with a later deadline.
Pre-Maxx Questions: He releases the BIGGIES. Burned Buff, Immunity Winner(s), Bootees, Hidden Idol Finders and likely the Returnees as well.
Pre-Show Questions: These, while trying not to detract from my other currently running games will likely range in content but will be something that isn't easily figured out. Or perhaps with community effort, becomes easy to answer. They will be derived from regular events, voting strategies, tweets-touts-teasers and whatever presents itself as questionable.
Each week it'll be up to you how many questions you'll feel comfortable answering AND to which deadline you can make your entry/entries in time for.
As a word of advise, I will closely be following post-times and edit-times, so make sure not to invalidate Pre-max questions by editing for Pre-show questions.
Points will be in (parentheses) after each question.
Here is a peek at what I've got going for the premiere...
|Episode 8 Entry|
1. Pre-Maxx: (Deadline: Adjusted weekly based solely on Maxx's original post time at TVFunSpot.)
A. Burned Buff: Which survivor will Lose the Redemption Island Challenge? (5)
B. Immunity Winner(s): Which tribe or individual will win the Immunity Challenge? (5)
C. Bootee: Which survivor will have their torch snuffed at Tribal Council? (5)
D. Returnee: Which RI survivor will win the right to re-enter the game? (5) *none is a valid answer
E. Idol Played: Which survivor Plays an idol at Tribal Council? (5) *none is a valid answer
F. Double Trouble: Will a Double Tribal Council occur in episode 8? Yes or No? (5)
2. Pre-Show (Deadline: 7:59 BOARDTIME day of airing)
A. Which Survivor will Vote First at Tribal Council? (5)
B. Which Survivor will Vote Last at Tribal Council? (5)
C. How many survivors receive votes at Tribal Council? (5)
D. How many votes does the bootee receive at Tribal Council? (5)
E. Name the survivors who vote for the bootee. (2 per correct answer)
AND as a special Pre-Premiere Perk, I'm offering the chance to go ahead and discuss, guess and spoil episode 8 before episode 7 even airs.
Go ahead and use this introductory thread to get the ball rolling.
While normally, the GOTS Discussion thread and the GOTS Entry thread will be posted in two different forums, this thread will have to act as both for this introduction.
So for the purposes of the Pre-Premiere Perk, all entries must be made in this thread.
I will be accepting answers for this Pre-Premiere Perk until Wednesday, Oct. 26th at 7:59 pm BOARDTIME.
I will then again, post the real Ep. 8 GOTS Discussion Thread and the real Ep. 8 GOTS Entry Thread.
You with me? You feeling it?
My pre-apologies if anyone thinks this is too distracting to discuss episode 8 while still trying to figure out episode 7 but because of the upcoming time-lines I had to get a bit of an early start.
Thanks for your understanding.
