Jess,

The spectators thought Sens deserved zero votes in Neds. Time to show him why.

Because I think you're more likely to win, and I'd like to keep our team at FULL STRENGTH

Let's see those results.

Image

How many words did Adorabebs bet she could find?

Spoiler:
25.


How many did she find?

Spoiler:
Only 18. She's 7 off, so she needs Shrek to have missed his bet by more than 7 words.




Image

How many words did Shrek bet he could find?

Spoiler:
32! He needs 25 or more words to win.


How many did he find?

Spoiler:
Only 9. Unfortunately, this means the original team captain of the Yellow Team has been eliminated. Adorabebs will return to the team holding the Safety Token.

Image






Let's get onto the winning teams' match.

Image

How many words did SensFan bet he could find?

Spoiler:
Only 5. Much more conservative than the previous 2 bets, but certainly achievable.


How many words did he actually find?

Spoiler:
10! Exceeded the bet by 5. He needs to either have Summer fail to reach her bet, or bet lower than 5.




Image

How many words did Summer bet she could find?

Spoiler:
8 words. If she reaches that goal, she wins.


How many words did she find?

Spoiler:
Exactly 8. It's fewer words than SensFan found, but what mattered here was setting a higher goal and reaching it; therefore, the Blue Team loses its second member.

Image

Summer has chosen not to mutiny, and gives the Blue Team's Safety Token to D3f3nd3r.

{Episode 03 Challenge}

Black & White


Today's challenge is one that you may have seen before on The Genius and Clash of the Mash - it's Black & White. Black & White is a strategy game that will require teams to outsmart and outwit their opponents to be able to win the most battles by placing the higher number on the table. Each team will be given 9 cards at the beginning of the game which represent the numerals 0-8. The cards with even numerals are black while the cards with odd numerals are white. When a card is placed out on the table, the other players will not be able to see the number, but will be able to see if it is a white or black card on the back. These cards will not be turned over during the competition, and therefore players will not know which specific cards that their opponents have played.

For the first turn, there will be a coin toss determined by dice roll. The team who wins the coin toss gets to choose which team will present a card first in the first round of play. The team who starts will always be the team who most recently won a round with 2 points, followed by the team who most recently got 1 point during a round. The first team will privately submit a card, and then the color of the card will be publicly announced. The second team will then also submit a card and the color will also be announced. Finally, the third team will also submit a card and that color will also be announced. After all teams have submitted their cards, results will be tabulated and the top ranking card will earn 2 points for this challenge. The middle ranking card will earn 1 point for this challenge. The lowest ranking card will earn 0 points for this challenge. If there is a tie, then all teams involved in the tie will average the point distribution that would normally result from their placement. (ie: 1.5-1.5-0 or 2-0.5-0.5). At the end of each round, the three played cards will be discarded. Please remember that the numerals used will never be revealed during gameplay.

You are allowed to discuss this challenge with any player still in the game.

The team that has the highest point total at the end of 9 rounds will win safety from the Fortress. In the event of a tie, the winning team will be 1) whoever received 2 points in the largest number of rounds, followed by 2) the team who was most recently in the lead before the tie occurred. The other two teams will complete the Fortress Selection Ceremony to determine who will be going into the Fortress. At the Fortress, the loser is eliminated and the winner will have an opportunity to mutiny to the other losing team.

You have a bit over 26 hours to discuss this challenge. After that, we will play the challenge live. You only need one player here to submit your team's decisions, but the more you can have to strategize and negotiate with other teams, the better. Your team will have 10 minutes for each turn. If you won't be on during the challenge, make sure to pull your weight now by helping develop a strategy and making deals with other teams if you wish. The challenge will begin at 8 PM EST tomorrow.

Also, could one representative from the Yellow team and one from the Blue team please contact me? I don't have much preference as to whom. More details will be given after contact has been established.

whenever it's 8 o'clock on the entire eastern United States

Also, friendly reminder: eliminated players can no longer discuss the game privately with any living players. You can still post in public threads like this one, but you cannot make posts that influence the game. "This challenge sucks" is fine, but "pablito sucks" is not fine. (In that hypothetical scenario, pablito is a player. You can talk about how much pablito sucks if you want even if you're eliminated.)
