I wouldn’t be surprised if those were the last bombs on the board.

I also wouldn’t be surprised if someone got out anyways.

That's a total of $827,880 on the board, add to that $500,000 to bring that up to $1,327,880, and boost that by 125%, meaning Jumble's final win bonus is $1,659,850!

Nothing else left in that round, so we give Jumble a bonus multiplier, they're also at one consecutive win. Finally, we're going to need to determine the Zone for next round! And there will be two grids in said round, too, each will be under the purview of the Zone. We'll be using the order in the first post to see which Zone we'll play in. And it'll be...

Original Roll String: 1d26
1 26-Sided Dice: (22) = 22

...The Know Zone! After bombs are placed for the round, each player will be allowed to ask a yes-or-no question to me about their grid, which I will answer truthfully. Should be a lot of fun! We'll be back for round two on Sunday.

There we are. Jumble, you and Allomancer are locked into grid A, and Tatsuya and one of Charles510, Thegamerontop, and vincentw will be in grid B. I'll roll a d3 to decide which of those three are locked to grid B this round, then you'll be making your decision on who to take into grid A with you, and then we can begin round 2!

1 = Charles510, 2 = Thegamerontop, 3 = vincentw

Alrighty.

Grid A has Jumble and Allomancer.
Grid B has Tatsuya Kaname and Charles510.

Jumble, please choose, out of the other six players, who to take to grid A with you, then we'll randomly assign the others and we'll get underway!

Very well! Jumble, Allomancer, and Kusane play in grid A, TK and Charles are in grid B, now let's see which other two players will be in grid A. The two highest rolls will be there.

1 = puzzledan, 2 = Agent Sparkles, 3 = Munchmellow, 4 = Thegamerontop, 5 = vincentw

Grid B has TK, Charles, puzzledan, Munchmellow, and vincentw!

Time to send your bombs in. We're in the Know Zone, so also send in your one yes-or-know question! Finally, you can bet on the grid outside of your own, as well as bomb hunt on the other grid. Good luck, you've got 48 hours, or in (expired on 2019-01-15 21:15:00).

A little confused on what exactly is locking.

So if I lock into a specific space, I prevent other players from getting it so that I can get it later? Also if I later found out that my locked space is a bomb do I still have to pick it?

If you lock a space, no other player can pick it. And if you lock a space, you have to pick it, even if you find out it's a bomb.

As there are two grids this round, they are split into two threads.

Grid A's thread is here.

Grid B's thread is here.

Good luck to all players!

Turbo Zone! Each board is 50 spaces, BUT... you may pick as many spaces as you'd like, up to seven. However, you must pick at least two until there are less than 20 spaces left.

We'll be starting round 3's setup on Monday, until then, have fun with the Big Game!

And, before I forget, let's resolve bets and bomb hunts!

Jumble bet $369,850 that vincentw wins. Success, that's an 11 to 2 win, or $2,034,175 added!

TK had 300k on Jumble losing. No good, that's a loss of $300,000.

puzzledan $67,525 on Kusane winning, and that's bad news for puzzledan.

Failed bomb hunts: Jumble looked for one at 7B, for $25,000. Agent Sparkles wanted 18B, $4,300 was there instead.
However! vincentw had 14A, TK went 7A, and and Charles did 10A, average win bonus was $4,500,000 and that goes for $1,125,000!
