You are encouraged to listen to any of these songs beforehand to help familiarize yourselves with them. All of them should be available on youtube. However, you are prohibited from using any audio-editing software to assist you in the challenge, and you CANNOT discuss the challenge with other teams.

Once you are ready to begin, have a team member coordinate a time with the mods for the mashup to be posted. You will then try and figure out as many of the songs as possible. Once you feel satisfied, post a list of up to 30 songs you think are in the mashup, and indicate clearly that it is your final list. If you list more than 30, only the first 30 you say will count. Wrong answers do not count against you, so feel free to guess on ones you don't know. Upon posting the final list, your time will be stopped.

However, today we're throwing in a twist. This challenge isn't being played for a winner, but rather a loser. The team that gets the fewest songs correct, with time acting as a tiebreaker, will have to send two players into the Fortress. For that team, the Safety Token will be passed around until two players have yet to receive it, upon which both of those players will enter the Fortress. The loser will be eliminated, and the winner will return to the team holding the Safety Token; they will not be able to mutiny.

For the two winning teams, each of you will send one player into the Fortress, where standard rules will apply. The loser goes home, and the winner has the opportunity to mutiny to the other winning team. The winner will also choose who gets the Safety Token on the team they don't join.

You have 48 hours to complete this challenge. Let a mod know as soon as possible when you plan on starting.

{Episode 02 Fortress}

Image

"I Can"

Image Image

Adorabebs vs. Shrek



Image Image

SensFan vs. Summer


Today's a big day, with two players leaving the competition in the same round. Unfortunately for the last place team, you have two players in the Fortress who will face off against each other, and only one player will return directly back to the team. For the other two teams, both of you have a dog in the fight, and one player will leave the competition. The player who wins that match, however, will have the opportunity to mutiny to the other winning team.

This Fortress is called "I Can". In this challenge, both players in a match-up will bet on how well they can do in a challenge. Prior to attempting the challenge, both players will privately bid on how many words in a 30x40 word search that they can find within 10 minutes, ie: "I Can find X number of words."

The word search is 30x40 and will feature words in all directions. No word list will be provided. There are 50 words intentionally hidden, but if you find words we don't have listed, that counts toward your total as well. To avoid a large number of short words, only words that are 5 letters or longer will count toward your total. Once you are ready to begin, contact a moderator and we will send you the word search image. Within 10 minutes, you must give the list of all the words you found. Any words given after the 10-minute mark will not count. Any incorrect words given will deduct 1 correct word from your total.

If only one player reaches their bet, that player will win and the other will be eliminated. If both players reach their bet, whoever had the higher bet wins. If both players fail, whoever was closest to their bet wins. If a tie remains after all the preceding criteria, whoever finds the most words in 10 minutes wins, with letter count of the words found acting as a further tiebreaker. The deadline to complete the bidding and wordsearch is 24 hours.

You are prohibited from using outside sources (this includes looking at word searches online) or getting help from other players.
