also
The Immunity Necklace can be given away, though this is extremely rare and dangerous.
to my knowledge is not true. the only time i recall someone trying is hyrule and mods didn't let them.

Hey, I'm taking xof's word on this. Clearly people will call them that now!

This has happened multiple times! During Mass Effect and during Magic Kingdom.

But can a whole tribe give up immunity?

Uh, it wasn't any sort of official name, it was like "how the hell do I explain this one round tribe that is dissolved after?" Arkham City had one too, and I think that's what I remembered them being called during Game of Thrones so I just half called it that for my own purposes. They didn't have an actual name. But much like Shipwrecks are called that after Sky Pillar I guess it's stuck for some people?

Speaking of Shipwrecks, there definitely were votes during the one in Sky Pillar, and I don't remember there ever being a distinction in fake merges on whether or not there are votes during it before.

And from what I can tell, alliances don't typically get names. The ones that do are in the minority.

Usually they're just referred to by their tribe names, like the Brode Alliance. That's something I liked in Eon, on a tangent, they made you guys name all your pairs.
If y'all think something is wrong you're free to edit the wiki, just try to think of something to add while you're there! Nothing in the 'lingo' section is supposed to be official, I just wanted a place to put terms we basically made up and make no sense even to people who've watched Survivor before. I suppose it's also the meme section.

Are you sure it was an immunity necklace? I know during Mass Effect I gave my hidden immunity idol away to someone

Pfft yes I'm sure, Harbinger and Liara traded the necklace to reset the game timer and give more time for a lurker to come back and vote.
The Immunity Necklace being something you can transfer led to one of the most infamous moments on the show too.

I know this is a awful set of questions, but I've read this thread and poked around, and I'm still confused.

1. How does one observe games?
2. How would someone sign up to join a game?
3. Where would I find sample "tasks"? (to help me wrap my head around that concept).

A thread will be posted in this forum whenever a game is ready to accept applications. In the application you express your preference for whether you want to be a player or a spectator. The mods choose who to play in the game from the pool of those who express interest in being a player.

By this do you mean challenges? If you check out the wiki you can look up past survivor games and check out the challenges done there. here is one example site

The same kind of concept was done in Magical Kingdom, when Jason gave his to Cody to a) extend the timer to try and get more vote onto his side and b) give Cody a chance to progress in the game over him

Blood vs. Water non-anon had its cool moments.
That which yields is not always weak. Read my new GTKAS here, ask some questions!

It's only been transferred twice on the show, and one of those times was a mistake.

4 times and two were mistakes. Never forget Jenna Burton and Brandon.

Burton pass wasn't really a pass (he still was immune) But brandons was even dumber than eriks.! I guess it doesn't fit any "lol men getting manipulated by hottie's" crap though...
