But everyone in the game needs to treat them like the least obvious twists

At merge a player gets force replaced by their long-lost twin.

The idea is for the players to create artificial drama by being idiots

Wait actually having two players share a single account and swapping like a hyrda sounds pretty awesome

Or announce all the twists three rounds before they happen, maybe?

Still looking for a dedicated group of co-mods to help me bang out the rest of Star Wars Survivor so it can try to run and coincide with The Last Jedi.

(Fun fact: originally, this planning process started 2 years ago in the leadup to The Force Awakens!)

Yes GoT has a lot of soapy elements but it doesn't have daily episodes that span decades.

Also it doesn't have a straight guy fall in love with a bi guy and then be like "yup I'm totally gay" as if bisexuality doesn't exist when his boyfriend is literally canonically bisexual.

And then proceed to have that character cheat on his boyfriend and then husband MULTIPLE times with women but still just be like through all of that "lol definitely not bisexual."

Loras Tyrell probably would have done that with someone but instead got in "lol" drama with the King's Mother's Feud with his sister who was seducing the underage king.

Man I love soap operas.
