Would definitely be cool to have more video stuff that we could maybe edit together into something to post on reddit.

that's the idea. bbm/bpc will be running two cameras each day and hopefully thatll let us facilitate more confessionals. each night we'll do a filedump to clear space for the next day and arrange files to make editing easier

A note on timing/scheduling.

We understand the previous game went by very fast & was rushed/stressful at times. We want to avoid that!

Based on how much daylight we have, I've scheduled out the event hypothetically.

Day 1: Thurs Jan 11. Arrive around 2PM. Start the game by 3:30PM. Run until midnight.
Day 2: Fri Jan 12. Give people wake up/shower/breakfast time from 9 until 10:30. Run the game until just after midnight.
Day 3: Sat Jan 13. 9-11 breakfast/wake up. Run the game until just before midnight.
Day 4: Sun Jan 14. Only FIC / FTC on this day. We can wrap it up early.
Day 5: Mon Jan 15. No game, just chilling. Decompression.
Day 6: Tues Jan 16. Pack it up and go home.

With this schedule, I've also extended the game time. In most situations, I've allowed AT LEAST an hour in between Tribal Council and the next challenge. Then I've allowed AT LEAST an hour in between challenges and Tribal Council. I also overbudgeted for challenges. For most challenges, I budgeted 30 minutes to 1 hour. I don't anticipate challenges actually taking that long, so any time saved means more downtime and free time.

At last Survivormeet, we were having to go from challenge to TC within 30 minutes, then to another challenge 30 minutes after that. By spacing out the days more and ADDING an extra day to the game, we have more breathing room. Some cycles/phases might still be a bit packed, but that's based on a very conservative estimate on free time. I highly anticipate some of these challenges we're designing to take 15 minutes despite having 45 minutes budgeted for it. Some challenges need daylight, others can be run any time, which makes it very flexible.

no, and i am really not interested in trying to rent two airbnb's which will jack up the price per person to a ridic amount PLUS putting a limit on "must be two available airbnbs" will make scheduling and logistics really difficult
