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

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

If you just eliminated PMing without replacing it that would be a massively sucky twist.


I was thinking of a game where at the end of each day, everyone's PM counts were publicly posted.

I think that'd be cool if it was the number of words exchanged by each combination of players. You'd ofc have to prohibit people from typing a bunch of words in an image in MS paint and posting that instead, and any other workarounds

Survivor: ASMR

every challenge involves listening to an ASMR video and answering questions about it
idol clues are hidden in super-long ASMR videos
everyone plays as different sounds

Everyone is placed in a secret pair at the start of the game with someone on the opposite tribe, and if you make it to the end with your secret partner you have the opportunity to win as a pair. However, you're not allowed to discuss your secret pair with anyone or speculate as to who else may be in a secret pair.

I think the reason it wasn't a problem in Eon was because the pairs were kept on separate tribes until the final 14, which is 10 boots into the game. Pairs were placed on the same tribe as early as F18 in LoL, which was after only 2 rounds.
