ALSO everyone has a different random number between 1 and 100 attached to their vote that they don't know

Or everyone starts the game with their vote counting for one, but can permanently make their vote stronger through rewards, auctions, finding them around the forum, etc.

Yeah, me neither! It probably helped that we announced pre-game that the merge rounds would work that way

wait why do i have edit access to everyone's posts in this thread? i assume it's so mods can edit posts in mish mash, but that shouldn't be allowed here because game playing doesn't occur here at all, this is more like a discussion forum.

bad idea: "ask and ye shall receive". anyone to say "i wish i had an idol" in confessional is immediately given an idol.

Yeah, we should stick to things that haven't been done. It would be kind of cool if a mod found something actually workable in this thread and found a way to use it. Not that I think it would happen, (except possibly for Arkham) but still I think we've done enough bashing for now.

Also, I know it's been brought up before, and it has a massive amount of issues as well as a boring flavor, but just so it's in an actual idea thread.

Survivor: Twitter. All communication must be in 140 characters or less.

yeah talking about previous crap ideas like the legendary box is funny but talking about future games we don't even know about was a bad idea.

I wish survivor twitter was the meta. long pms are garbage. but yeah enforcing it would be impossible obviously. any mechanics of changing pms apart from turning them off and on is completely impossible, unfortunately. SAD!

twist idea: pms are banned all communication is done using some chat website or public threads. to create a QT with anyone else or multiple people, you have to post it in thread.

If it didn't encourage walling harder than people already do it would be cool to have a game where there's a cap on PMs that any two players can send to each other per day/cycle/challenge/TC.

I mean, it's certainly doable, but it would mean absolute disaster for people that can't or don't wall since that's likely what people will have to do.

I know we just a conversation about not mocking ideas still in planning, but.. HOW DOES 32 PLAYERS EVEN WORK??

Anyway: No Tribal Councils or tribes. Person who does the WORST in the challenge is automatically eliminated. Every challenge is also a different room escape game. No Jury, the FIC determines the winner.
Do I REALLY suck? That's up to you to decide.
