Five hundred miles west of the coast of Samoa sits an island untouched by civilization. For millennia, this mystical place has sat undisturbed--until now. As our group of castaways venture into the jungle, hacking away at vines and creating a trail for people to follow in their wake, they quickly tire in the stifling heat. After an hour-long trek, they stumble upon a cave. The opening is only wide enough for one person to squeeze through, so the group quickly elects a representative. That person squirms through the gap, then opens their mouth to scream but there is only silence.

In the cave sits a stone obelisk, smooth to the touch, and glistening as though it was freshly polished. Mists swirl through the cave and a bright light shines from just beyond the obelisk. A calm voice speaks, seemingly from everywhere and simultaneously nowhere: "Welcome to Ghost Island. Recorded here are millions of years of records. And which year is it for you now?"

Julie Chen looks up at the obelisk. "What is this? Who are you?"

"Which year is it for you now?" The voice is more insistent this time.

"It's...it's 2017." Julie's face falls as she remembers the past year. The high hopes for the BB19 cast, and then the crushing disappointment that many of them turned out to be. The antics of Raven Walton, a southern hypochondriac, and the pot-banging shenanigans of Josh Martinez, the eventual winner. But everything in that year seemed overshadowed by the "veteran" who returned to the game, Paul Abrahamian, a former fan favorite player. Julie shuddered as she remembered his downfall at the very end.

"2017? Fascinating. What a very...intriguing year in your human history. The beginning of the end, some would say." The voice softly chuckled. "You're in luck. We've planned something quite exciting for you. Go out and rejoin your group now. And enjoy your time on Ghost Island!"

"Wait, what is this place? What do you mean, 'beginning of the end'? How will I--"

The voice interrupted: "Julie, enough. Leave this place. And remember...expect the unexpected..."

_____________________________________________

Friends, it is my pleasure to invite you to an adventure like no other--The 2017 Year in Review Discord Extravaganza! This game will feature elements from Survivor: Game Changers, Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers, Big Brother Season 19, Big Brother Canada Season 5, and The Amazing Race Season 29. Additionally, it has the potential to feature game mechanics, twists, or other design elements from every single Large Social Game run on Mafiascum this year, including the following: Survivor: Nexus, Big Brother: Summer of Spookz, School Survivor, Survivor: MLS, Skype-vivor: Names Are Memes, Survivor: One World, Anonymous Survivor Survivor, The Challenge: Cutthroat, Survivor: Civilization, Tontine, Allocate/Execute II, and The Genius.

This Year in Review Game is open to anyone with Internet, and with Discord. While you CAN play exclusively on your phone, I would strongly encourage having a desktop connection of some sort if you wish to play.

Please feel free to sign up below, and do so quickly! I'm going to have to put a hard cap at 24 players to allow me to plan a little better, and I'd like to have at least 16 play in order to fit as much fun and joy and excitement in as possible. Additionally, once you sign up, please message me on Discord (my Discord handle is MontyWhittaker#6697) to "lock in" your spot, so I don't have to worry about finding everyone last minute.

As always, feel free to direct any questions or concerns my way. And if you have any particular twists or mechanics from 2017 that you want to be remembered in this Year in Review game, send those suggestions my way, either via pm here, or by messaging me on Discord!

Tragic

Anyway unless this starts really late on Friday I doubt I'll be able to play, tragically, but I am available Saturday, for what that's worth.

Unless like a lot of people get free schedules in the next few hours, we're probably going to reschedule this for a different time.

This game WILL be played entirely on Discord, which I am STOKED for. Get excited, sign up, and vote in the poll that will hopefully be at the top of this page soon!
