In my opinion, juries are already like this anyways. At least, each person cares the most about their personal impact on the game and as a finalist you have to figure out how to pander to that.

Spoiler: CC's guide to being a finalist
  • Make sure your opening speech is 3,000 words or longer. You want to go through every single event in the game explaining your thought process. Go day by day giving an in-depth view of even the most trivial decisions you made. This way, few people will read your entire speech
  • Assume everyone on the jury is jealous of you and resents you
  • Questions where people ask you to give a gif describing each member of the jury are the most important questions. These gifs will be graded on a scale from whiff to gifilf, so focus on that over anything game-related.
  • Everyone on the jury feels like they are equally robbed and deserved to win, which they do. Surrender your spot in the finals to every jury member, because they also tried super hard and deserve to win.

I know you meant some of these are jokes, but to be fair...

See, if it was just having no life I would take a day off and win endurance
But it's have no life and also have a connection that doesn't screw up at least twice a day for five minutes.

There was this one time I tried out being less aggressive and idol-hunting quietly instead of being myself. That certainly had an affect.
Something I would recommend as practice to address Chevre's point, there are always smaller/less serious Mish Mash games going on that take less time. Playing Allocation, Nominations, and Behind the Masks helped me practice a lot in a short time and involved a ton of social interaction. Non-Anon games do require you to put some effort in making sure you're connected to -someone- of course or you won't be trying things out for very long.

Being easy to ID is a bad thing and goes against the spirit of anonymous games. :P

We went over this, you can still pretend to be Australian or Rory. Tell people about your WIFE

No I changed my mind, this is a dumb thread to have this argument in.

How would you do a semi-anon? Like what does that mean exactly?

Pretense matters though. For example: Pikachu's vote for Delphox might have been altered if he knew Delphox was not in fact xofelf as he believed, but that nice guy Zoroark!

hey folks, I've been working on this Glossary of large social terms for newbies to understand what the heck we're talking about all the time, if you see anything important missing just edit it in!

Hey, I'm taking xof's word on this. Clearly people will call them that now!

The Immunity Necklace can be given away, though this is extremely rare and dangerous.
to my knowledge is not true. the only time i recall someone trying is hyrule and mods didn't let them.

This has happened multiple times! During Mass Effect and during Magic Kingdom.

Usually they're just referred to by their tribe names, like the Brode Alliance. That's something I liked in Eon, on a tangent, they made you guys name all your pairs.
If y'all think something is wrong you're free to edit the wiki, just try to think of something to add while you're there! Nothing in the 'lingo' section is supposed to be official, I just wanted a place to put terms we basically made up and make no sense even to people who've watched Survivor before. I suppose it's also the meme section.

Pfft yes I'm sure, Harbinger and Liara traded the necklace to reset the game timer and give more time for a lurker to come back and vote.
The Immunity Necklace being something you can transfer led to one of the most infamous moments on the show too.
