Backwards Rs are still cool, right?


It's been quite a while since the last non-anonymous large social game, and even longer since the last one that wasn't Survivor or Big Brother. There's more this site has to offer than those two concepts, so if you're up for trying something new, this is the game for you. To apply, click the link below and fill out an application.



Spoiler: Game Rules
General Rules


[A01] This is a game. You should play to have fun, and to win. You should not prohibit others from doing the same. You should show respect to all participants at all times. We understand this is a game that deals with a lot of emotions, and you should feel free to show that emotion -- just don't push it too far. If in doubt, ask.

[A02] This game is non-anonymous. All actions in the game will take place on Mafiascum. However, players are encouraged to communicate through any other means they find most convenient, such as Skype or Facebook. You are prohibited from sharing screenshots of your private conversations, and from sharing private messages in a way that can't be falsified, such as the quote function on Skype.

[A03] You should not take any action which disrupts or undermines the integrity of the game. You should also not take any action that brings the game into disrepute. This includes, but is not limited to, cheating in or explicitly seeking to break challenges, communicating with players you are not permitted to, communicating information using screenshots or PM forwarding. If in doubt, ask.

[A04] If there is a problem, or there has been a mistake made, discuss it with a mod.

[A05] In superficially breaking one of the rules in this ruleset, an Official Warning will be given. If the breach is substantial, or a second breach of any named rule is made, discretionary sanctions will be applied. If the breach if excessive, or a further breach is made after sanctions, you will be modkilled. This is your only (unofficial) warning.

[A06] We reserve the right at any time to implement new rules. We reserve the right to use our discretion in disciplining players as we see fit, if a situation not covered by these rules arises, using A04 as a guide. We reserve the right to refrain from disciplining players if we believe the offence is sufficiently minor. Should these rules be substantively altered at any time, you will be informed.



Game Mechanics

Format


[B01] The game starts with 24 players competing in an individual challenge, where the three winners become team captains, drafting all the other players onto their teams in a snake draft.
[B02] The captain of each team will become the holder of their team’s Safety Token, the effects of which will be explained later. After that, the captain has no additional perks or responsibilities.
[B03] If a team is reduced down to one member, and at least one of the opposing teams has at least four members left, all teams with four members or more will hold a vote for who to send to join the one-man team. Anyone holding a Safety Token can not be voted out of their team.

Challenges


[C01] To start most rounds, there will be a team challenge, where the winning team earns immunity from the Fortress, a duel for elimination.
[C02] All outcomes of challenges are final, subject to A04.
[C03] A range of challenge styles has been designed, to test different skills. We cannot provide for all players all the time, but we have tried our best to make challenges as level and fair as possible.
[C04] Unless otherwise stated, the use of outside resources during any challenge is strictly prohibited. Any players found in violation of this rule will be immediately eliminated. Regardless, we have tried to craft a game where cheating is, for the most part, impossible.
[C05] WARNING: Multiple challenges in this game will involve audio. Therefore, we regretfully cannot recommend this game for the hearing-impaired.

The Fortress


[D01] After a winning team is determined from the challenge, each of the losing teams then begin the Fortress selection process. Whoever holds the Safety Token picks one member of their team to pass the Token to. That player then chooses another team member to give the Token to, avoiding people who have already touched the Token. Eventually, only one member on the team will not have touched the Token; that player will enter the Fortress.
[D02] The players selected for the Fortress from each of the losing teams will then face off in a duel where the loser is eliminated from the game.
[D03] Rules C02, C03, and C04 apply to any Fortress challenge as well.
[D04] The winner of the Fortress has the option to mutiny to the other losing team if they desire. Either way, the Fortress winner becomes the new Safety Token holder on their team. Since this leaves one team without a Safety Token holder, the winner of the Fortress chooses who on that team becomes the new Token holder.

Twists


[E01] Some rounds may contain twists that shake up the standard format, so do not become too comfortable. Regardless of the twist, anyone holding a Safety Token at the start of a round cannot be eliminated that round under any circumstance.

Final Challenge


[F01] At a predetermined point in the game, there will be a final team challenge, where all members of the team will participate and must contribute. You may benefit from having more members in the Final, but dead weight could bring you down.
[F02] Despite the fact that you are sending individuals into the elimination round, this is first and foremost a team game. There is no merge or team swap, you are with your team until the end or until you choose to mutiny after winning a Fortress.
[F03] Even though this is a team game, you do not win as an individual unless you are a member of the winning team in the final challenge. By signing up for this game, you are expected to fight to avoid anything that isn't a victory for you personally.



Player Contract
We are requiring all players, in lieu of other methods of rule compliance, to agree to a player contract in submitting an application. Please read it carefully. If you foresee that you will be unable to follow this contract, please discuss it with a mod: while we do want to accommodate you, we cannot accept any player who cannot obey this contract.


[Y01] By submitting an application to play and/or spectate, you agree to abide by all these rules.

[Y02] By submitting an application, you agree that you have read and acknowledged all these rules.

[Y03] By submitting an application, you forfeit ignorance of the rules as an excuse.

[Y04] By submitting an application, you forfeit plausible deniability of acceptable standards as an excuse. This means you may not claim that you thought your actions erred on the right side of the line.

[Y05] By submitting an application, you agree to be active in your participation in accordance with these rules, and shall not flake.

[Y06] By submitting an application, you accept that you are bound by the honour system, and must at all times remain bound by it.

[Y07] By submitting an application, you accept that breaching this contract may result in replacement, modkilling, sanctions, and/or blacklisting.

[Y08] If you are unwilling or unable to obey this contract at any time, you must notify the mods immediately.

If you'll have limited access when the game starts, make sure to let us know. We're sending the captains' challenge to those people ahead of time, although it won't provide any advantage.

(Play music while reading the intro for maximum MTV effect)

Welcome to Andorra. The 24 of you will battle it out here for a handsome cash prize.

Image

Image

I'm TJ Lavin, pro BMX legend and actual vampire. I'll be your host this season, but only barely.

Image
You've all got a lot to prove, so let's meet you one by one.


Image
TWIE


He placed in the middle of the pack in COTM 2016 and Survivor: MLS. In the past, he's put the challenges ahead of those silly politics, but it's come back to bite him. Will he adapt to the players around him? Or will he be able to make it work winning the whole way through?


Image
PRIVATEI

PrivateI has done consistently well in Survivor games, despite never putting out a win. He's always known as a likable guy, which can play against him. Will he finally be able to assert his dominance, or will he become "Big Moves Maddie" 2.0?


Image
D-NAME

DisplayName is a rookie to the Challenge Circuit. There's not much history to go into on him, but he had the most impressive application of anyone on the cast. Will he live up to that early promise, or will he fizzle out into nothingness?


Image
SUMMER

There's three things you need to know about Summer: She hates Dan Kilby, she loves winning Survivor, and she's been accused of being a "bully".
She reached the end of School Survivor by finding two idols and winning a string of crucial immunities, but she's never played a game in the Challenge Circuit. Will she be able to let her social skills reign supreme, or will she be crushed by the unfamiliar format?


Image
CHEERY

Cheery can be hard on himself, but don't let that fool you. He was a runner-up in Survivor: Abridged by 1 vote, and narrowly lost in the final Temple of Fate in Super Mario Endurance. He was a r.obbed f.an f.avorite in Reality Show X. Will his lovableness shine through, or will he continue his recent run of early defeats?


Image
STD

Despite an unfortunate abbreviation, Save The Dragons has come close to dominating every game he's entered, with his lowest placement in Survivor being 9th place. However, he's yet to win since his very first time out in Survivor: Hogwarts. Will he finally make a comeback, or will his bad luck continue?


Image
JDGA

JDGA has always been a top tier challenge performer, but fights with Salamence in Pokémon Colosseum almost prevented her from making it to the end. Will her prowess prove strong once again, or will more fights develop and divide her team?


Image
SHREK

Somebody once told me that Shrek was a fan favorite in Survivor: One World, although he was hated by most of the players. Will he become one of the sharpest tools in the shed? Or will his brain get smart while his head gets dumb?


Image
D3F3ND3R

He's played more games than almost anyone on the site, and has still yet to win. Through a run of bad luck, he was the first person out of COTM 2016. Will this finally be his year, or is it still not his weekend?


Image
AUDACIOUS

She's a famous Ariana Grande and Jenna Morasca stan, and a notorious Survivor player on Roblox. However, this is her first attempt at a game here on MS. Will she be a dangerous woman, or fail to break free?


Image
MCMENNO

McMenno is a notorious memelord and shitposter. After a very early departure from COTM 2016, he had a run of bad performances on Survivor before finally making the merge in One World. Will he be the one, or will he be r.obbedie rotten?


Image
RANDY

Randy is one of the people with the least experience in the cast. He's hungry, he's a huge fan of RHAP, and he knows what to do to jump right into the game even without playing many himself.


Image
KDOWNS

Kdowns has been around in the challenge scene longer than anyone in this game, but has yet to pull out a win. He's had bad luck in Survivor recently, falling early in both Nexus and School Survivor, so he's back to prove that returning from Redemption Island in Survivor: Greece wasn't a fluke.


Image
HASCHEL

Since we last saw Haschel Cedricson, he became the winner of COTM 2016 AND was anointed as a moderator of the new LSG forum in which we're battling today. The only place he can go from here is down. Will he be able to maintain his tough legacy?


Image
XALXE

Xalxe narrowly lost in the finals of COTM 2016 by 6 minutes to Haschel and Klick, and he's not coming here to make that mistake again. He hasn't won a game since Survivor: Seafoam Islands, and that was years ago. Has his experience modding Magic Kingdom and designing Pirate Master helped hone his challenge skills, or has he taken too much time away from playing?


Image
KACES

It's no secret that KingdomAces prefers any challenge-based aspect of a game to the social mechanics. In Survivor: Medevac Island, he gained a reputation for being a robot, but in that case there were no challenges to save him. We'll see if a challenge-driven game will help him reach another victory.


Image
SENSFAN

After a long hiatus from competition on Mafiascum, SensFan returned for School Survivor and made it all the way to the final three. He lost due to a tied jury vote, with Summer casting the vote that caused him to become the runner-up. Will they be able to put their differences aside, or will his time away from MS come back to bite him?


Image
AURA

Aurathebirb. She was a fan favorite and excellent strategist in Survivor: One World. This is her first experience in an environment with challenges on MS, but she's far from being the only rookie here. Will her connections from One World carry over, and can she make new ones?


Image
PEG

The man once known for getting into constant fights has mellowed out much more lately, and came close to winning Big Brother: Summer of Spookz through an incredible double veto play and a few key challenge wins. Will he bring back the DRAMA, maintain his strong performance, or BOTH?


Image
BROSEIDON

BROseidon never shies away from making his opinion known on many matters, which will make him fit right in with the MTV Challenge cast. He always talks about how he's a stereotypical merge boot, but this game has no merge. It may work in his favor.


Image
GRUMPY

He performed extremely well in his two Survivor outings so far, both part of the Medevac series, but he's yet to compete in a challenge that isn't stamina-based. He's also never watched The Challenge, which means he probably has a lot in common with most of this cast.


Image
RACEFAN

Racefan has had a tumultuous history so far on Mafiascum. He came close to the end of Medevac Island and was 6 minutes away from winning COTM 2016 with Xalxe. Sadly, he was the first person voted out of One World due to his schedule. Which end of the Racefan spectrum will we see this time?


Image
IPS

Iprobablysuck: a username that so far has unfortunately rang true, as he went out early in COTM 2016. On the other hand, that means that the only direction he can go from there is up. This could be a redemption arc to challenge that of Cara Maria.


Image
FLAMEAXE

He came here to eat ass and kick bubblegum, and he's all out of catchphrases. He's modded fairly frequently in recent years, but hasn't played much. Will his experience running games with someone way cooler than him help him out, or will this game fail to be a magic moment?

You are now welcome to talk with any other players as you please. Since you'll all be living in one big house, you'll be able to freely communicate with other teams, although usually discussion about ongoing challenges will be prohibited.

like come on lets get back to it mtv, stuff was way more fun when there was some br00talness.

they played PVRIS 5 times within the past 2 seasons, I've counted, and that's about as br00tal as it gets anymore

{Captain's Challenge}

Race to the House


Image


Welcome, everyone, to The Challenge: Cutthroat! The 24 of you have been selected to battle it out for a share of a $240,000 (fictional) cash prize for the winning team. However, it's up to you competitors to determine how the teams are divided. To figure out who will take those spots, we're having you compete in a classic race to the house.

When you're ready to begin, fill out this form, giving your username when prompted. Then you will be given a link for a game to play, and your time will start. We recommend using a computer. From the time of submission, you have 20 minutes to play the game and to submit your best score. To submit your score, you will need to take a screenshot of it with a Mafiascum tab visible. We recommend Gyazo for quick and easy screenshotting. After you make a screenshot, fill out the form again, this time marking that you are finishing the challenge, and give the link to your screenshot, stopping your time. For every second your time exceeds 20 minutes, your score will be reduced by an undisclosed amount.

The players with the highest 3 scores will become team captains, with any ties broken by time. Team captains will not only pick players for teams through a snake draft, but they will also become their team's first Safety Token holder. Even though only the top 3 scorers will be rewarded, this is your first chance to prove yourself to the other players and to make yourself out to be a valuable teammate. You have 48 hours to complete this challenge.

You cannot use outside resources to assist you in this challenge, and you are prohibited from discussing it with other players.

What's the point in any of this :cry:

(whenever I posted challenge results in COTM, I frequently used people's avatars to represent people, which quickly became annoying because 1) they were all slightly different sizes, 2) people kept changing their avatars which would break the old image links, and 3) they had no unifying look to them. so this solves all those problems while also giving a face (albeit a fictional one) to everyone's name!)

Under 24 hours to complete the challenge, if you're unable, please let us know, or else you may be replaced!

Most deadlines for individual challenges in the future will be 24 hours. Team challenges will typically be 48.

Speaking of draft lists, we're gonna try to conduct the draft here live if all 3 captains can be present right after results are posted in under 2 hours.

{Episode 01 Challenge}

Image

Superfight


Congratulations on your team selection. In Cutthroat, you live and die with your team. You will all win together for immunity, or you lose and will have to send one player to the Fortress, where only one player returns. Your team has now been set, and there is no way to change your team unless you choose to mutiny later on. I hope you like your teams :lol: Remember that first and foremost, Cutthroat is a team game. There is no individual winner, only the best team will win.

Hopefully your captains have selected a good team in which team members have strengths in different areas. No single challenge skill will help you get to the final challenge. Let's get to your first team challenge. In each team challenge, teams will work to defeat the other two teams to be victorious. The winner of the team challenge will gain safety. The other two teams will have to go through the Fortress selection process where two players will be sent into the Fortress.

This challenge will test your ability to be convincing and charismatic. Based on the card game Superfight, teams must now try to convince a panel of anonymous judges that their character can win the fight. This will be done by drawing cards and debating characters and their attributes. For basic rules or an overview of the actual game, click here. However, this challenge is using a modified set of the rules.

As a team, you will be given 15 white cards, all of which are people, characters or things of some sort. This will represent your superhero in the fight. As a team, you must decide who will use which white card. Each player must select exactly one white card character, and the remaining are discarded for this challenge. Black cards are adjectives or modifiers and will either strengthen, weaken, or just weirden your character. Your team will be given 30 total black cards. As a team, you must decide which player gets which black cards. Each player must take exactly 3 black cards. During gameplay, 1 black card will be added by a player on their own character. The other 2 black cards will be played on their opponents' characters. During the opening "team phase" it is not required to know which black card will be played on which opponent. The first step is to ensure that all 8 players have exactly 1 white card and 3 black cards to take to their individual battles.

Once the initial "team phase" is over, each player will be in a battle along with two other opponents, each one from a different team. To start, each player must announce their white card and their opening black card to modify their character. Once these are announced, the other players have 12 hours to play a black card on each of their opponents. This must be done in thread and there is no order necessary. The earlier that this is announced, the more time that players will have to argue their case. Failure to complete this step within the 12 hours will mean that the black cards will be randomized and selected on behalf of a player. At this point each player should have one white card (character) that has three black cards (modifiers). Based on this set-up, each player must now argue on behalf of their character on why their character would win a fight against the other two. Please be civil and ensure that all posts follow the rules of Cutthroat as well as the Boilerplate Rules of mafiascum.net. The discussion will continue until DEADLINE. Once deadline hits, our panel of judges will rank each of the characters in the fight based on who would win. These votes will be tabulated and the winner will be the player who has the highest average ranking of the three.

Teams are not allowed to discuss with other team members during the Battle Phase. Team discussion is only allowed during the Team Planning Phase. This challenge will last 72 hours. 12 for Planning Phase, 12 for Black Cards, 48 hours for the Battles. The judges will then read the battle and rank order who they believe was the Winner, Middle, and Loser of each battle. After all ranks are tabulated, the player in this match-up with the best average score will gain 2 points, the second-best average score will gain 1 point, and the lowest average score will gain 0 points. The team who gains the most points will win this challenge and be safe. If there's a tie, the team with the most 2-point battles will win. If there remains to be a tie, then the team that has the highest character count in their posts overall will win the tiebreaker. Both losing teams will send a player into the Fortress through the standard selection process, where the loser is eliminated and the winner will be given the opportunity to mutiny to the other losing team.

Iprobablysuck has requested to be removed from the game due to real life circumstances. Since it is only round 1, we will be contacting DisplayName to take his spot, since he responded to our message yesterday that he missed game start but still wants to play.

If DisplayName doesn't respond or doesn't want to replace in, the Blue Team will be down one member, but we will still have a Fortress this round. Likewise, any future quits or modkills will not affect the planned format of the game. We have designed all challenges, as well as the final challenge, to work with any number of members competing on each team.

Do Your Words Add Up?

Image Image

D-Name vs. Randy


Welcome to the first Fortress in Cutthroat. One of you will have the opportunity to mutiny to the other losing team from the challenge, while the other will be the first person eliminated from the game.

When you are ready to begin, you will receive a mathematical formula where each digit has been replaced by a different letter of the alphabet. All instances of a letter in the formula represent the same digit, and no numbers are used for more than one letter. You will need to match each letter to a digit so that the presented formula is all correct. The first digit in a number will never be a zero.

An example and one correct solution are shown below.
Formula wrote:SPA + TOT + URN = DIDO

Solution wrote:0 = O
1 = I
2 = D
3 = N
4 = R
5 = S
6 = P
7 = U
8 = T
9 = A

No outside resources, aside from a calculator/note-taking material, are allowed. One you believe you have a correct solution, post it in your challenge thread. There is no penalty for posting an incorrect answer, but you will not be told which letters you have wrong. Once you give a correct answer, your time will be stopped. There may be more than one correct solution. The player with the slowest time will be eliminated from the game, while the winner will have control over the Safety Tokens on both losing teams from today. You have 24 hours to complete this Fortress.

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}

"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.

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, 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.)

1 for Blue, 2 for Yellow, 3 for Purple. Whoever it lands on goes first.

{Episode 03 Fortress}

Image

Triple Threat

Image Image

Cheery vs. Radical


Cheery and Radical, you've been sent into the Fortress by your team for one reason or another, and as such, it's time for you to prove yourselves. One of you will have the opportunity to mutiny to the other losing team from the challenge, while the other will be the fourth person eliminated from the game.

For today's Fortress, you'll be playing a series of 3 different puzzles, aiming for the fastest time in each one. The fastest time on a puzzle wins that point, and the first player to 2 points wins, while the loser is eliminated from the game.

Game #1: Neighbours
  • The game will be played on a 7x7 grid where your goal is to put exactly one of every digit 1 through 7 in every row and column.
  • Some boxes on the grid have a "><" symbol between them. This symbol indicates the numbers in these boxes are adjacent (e.g. 1 >< 2, 3 >< 4, 2 >< 1).
  • If there is no "><" symbol between two boxes, that means the numbers are NOT adjacent.

Game #2: Logic Puzzle
  • You will be given a handful of categories, with a few options in each category, as well as a list of clues. You must logically figure out what the puzzle asks you to determine. For example, "match each person listed to their house color, their type of pet, and their pet's name".

Game #3: Nuribake
  • The game will be played on an 8x8 grid, with all squares grayed out except for several white squares that each contain a number. Your objective is to determine which squares should be filled in white (land), and which should be blue (water).
  • All white squares belong to an "island" of white squares, where all squares on an island are touching either vertically or horizontally. The number in a white square tells you how many white squares make up the island that square belongs to.
  • No island consists of more than one numbered white square.
  • Every island is isolated from every other island vertically and horizontally but they may touch diagonally.
  • All of the blue water squares must be connected.
  • 2x2 blue water blocks are NOT allowed. However, 2x2 white island blocks are.

You have 24 hours to coordinate a time with the moderators and to complete all three puzzles. The puzzles do not need to be played in the order listed above, and do not all have to be played in one sitting. Once you believe you have a puzzle correctly filled in, send it to a mod.
If you are correct, your time will stop, and while there is no penalty for incorrect submissions, you will not be told where you messed up.
Absolutely no outside resources are allowed, and this includes practicing any of the puzzles beforehand.

Game 1: Neighbors

Image

Cheery Dog took...

Spoiler:
9 minutes 55 seconds.


Image

Radical Rat took...

Spoiler:
47 minutes 20 seconds.

Cheery leads 1-0.






Game 2: Logic Puzzle

Image

Cheery Dog took...

Spoiler:
8 minutes 40 seconds.


Radical Rat took...

Spoiler:
9 minutes 40 seconds.

With that, Cheery is ahead 2-0, and Radical Rat is eliminated from the game. Let's see the final match anyways.






Game 3: Nuribake

Image

Cheery Dog finished in...

Spoiler:
8 minutes 20 seconds.


Image

Radical Rat finished in...

Spoiler:
12 minutes 45 seconds.

Unfortunately, it was a clean sweep. Radical Rat, you have been eliminated.

Image

Cheery Dog has chosen.... NOT to mutiny. He returns to the Yellow Team holding the Safety Token, and passes the other Safety Token to Kdowns.

Since most numbers multiplied by 80% don't result in a whole number, we won't be using rounding. As such, you can distribute weight by increments of 0.1 pound; since 1 pound adds 10 characters to a runner's sequence, 0.1 pound will add 1 character.

For the record, everyone got the same string of characters, with additional characters added on if they had more than everyone else. For example, Xalxe had 206 characters, so his characters were the first 206 characters in everyone else's string.

Attention to all those competing in the Fortress: an alternate version of the sound file has been created, with the tempo slowed down significantly. You may continue working on the current version you have. If you can't solve it, your time will reset once you receive the new version. In the event that no one solves the original version, whoever solved the new version in the shortest amount of time after receiving it wins the Fortress.

Spoiler:
KAces was stopped since he went over the winning time.


Image

Spoiler:
Aura finished in 2 hours and 45 minutes. Could Haschel do it faster?


Image

Spoiler:
He could. Haschel finished 15 minutes after receiving the quicker version. Aura and KAces, both of you will sadly need to say goodbye.

Haschel has chosen not to mutiny. He gives the other Safety Tokens to Cheery and Summer.

Extreme Makeover: Video Edition


Now that you just had a round with no team challenge, we figured we'd get you right back in the groove of things with a good one. And you'll be happy to hear that this challenge will result in only one team losing! You'll be less happy to hear that this is because two people will be eliminated this round. The losing team will send in two players, where the winner will return to the team with a Safety Token. Both winning teams will send in one player; the winner of that match-up will have the opportunity to mutiny to the other winning team, and decide where the Safety Tokens go on both teams.

For today's challenge, only 5 of you will be competing. The challenge is semi-live, meaning your time will start when you are ready. Once you have enough people online to play, everyone who's competing for your team will be privately sent several video links out of order, each video a few seconds long. When watched in order, this clips make a coherent full video. The catch? You won't be given the full video to reference, you can't try to find the full video online, and you can't share your clips with your team. That includes sharing screenshots or making drawings of what happens in your clip. All you can do is describe what happens to the best of your ability, and eventually narrow down which clips lead into each other until you've figured out as much of the order as you can.

You will also need to designate one team leader of the 5 people competing to receive one more clip than the rest of your team.

Each clip you receive with be named with a 1 or 2-letter code. Once you believe you've figured out the order of the clips to the best of your ability, post the corresponding clip names in order. You receive 1 point for every pair of consecutive clips you have correctly put together. For example, if the correct sequence is "ABCDEFGHIJ" and your team's submission is "ABCGHDIJEF" you will receive 5 points (for AB, BC, GH, IJ, and EF). The team with the lowest points will be today's losers, and send in two players to the Fortress. In the event of a tie, the slowest time loses. Good luck, and you have 48 hours to coordinate a time and complete this challenge.

The Purple Team scored...

Spoiler:
100% correct, with a time of 1 hour 5 minutes!


The Yellow Team scored...

Spoiler:
100% correct, with a time of 44 minutes! They avoid last place.


The Blue Team scored...

Spoiler:
100% correct, with a time of 46 minutes! Their 1st place streak has come to an end, but regardless they will send one player into the Fortress against someone from the Yellow Team. The Purple Team will send in two players.

The Fortress selection process begins now.

Columns

STD vs. Grumpy


Image Image

Kdowns vs. Summer


Kdowns and Summer, since your team lost the challenge, you were both voted into the this Fortress. The winner between the two of you will rejoin the team holding the Safety Token.

STD and Grumpy, you will be facing off as usual, with the winner being given the Safety Token and the opportunity to mutiny to the other winning team.

Columns is a fun game that is hard to explain, so we're using these graphics.

Image
Image
Image
Image

The turn order for both matches will be determined by the Fortress nominee from the first place team in today's challenge. That means Grumpy will need to publicly declare who goes first in each match before either game can start; try to do that as soon as possible.

The board will be updated using a spreadsheet that will be provided in your PT. Each of the 12 large squares represent one peg on the board. Once it is a player's turn, they must post the following in their game thread: the type of piece they would like to play, and the coordinates on the spreadsheet that the piece will take up, all bolded.

Please coordinate with the person you're playing against to find a time you can both compete in the challenge. It should take under an hour. Let a mod know within 24 hours when you plan on completing the challenge.

Kdowns defeated Summer in the Fortress, and returns to the Purple Team with the Safety Token.

Grumpy was unable to complete the Fortress due to his V/LA. STD stays on the Blue Team and gives the Yellow Team's token to Randy.

Recliner


Today, we're not throwing in any twists. It's a good ole-fashioned trivia competition. One at a time, each team will send a player to face a specific trivia category, with 10 questions in each category. Each competitor will hold onto a rope while leaning backwards against a wall over the water. When a player gives an incorrect answer, the slack on their rope will be loosened, making the player lean back even further. If two incorrect answers are given, the rope is completely loosened, and the player is dropped into the water below.

The first player to fall in a category scores 0 points for their team, second wins 1 point, and the person who holds on the longest wins 2 points. If two or more players hold on for the same number of questions, the person with the fastest time will prevail.

Before we get into the questions, each team must designate one player to compete in each of the below categories.

  • Movies
  • Television
  • Sports
  • Gaming
  • History
  • Literature
  • Music
  • Geography
  • Science
  • Art
The categories must be distributed as evenly as possible between members. A player cannot be assigned to >1 more category than any of his or her teammates. For example, if a player is competing in exactly 3 categories, everyone else on the team must be assigned to at least 2 categories each.

You ARE ALLOWED to use outside resources on this challenge, meaning that it's okay to not know a few answers off the top of your head, but the more answers you know immediately, the better your time will be. Still, you are NOT ALLOWED to communicate with other players regarding the content of any of your questions.

You have 24 hours to deliberate and decide who will take on which categories. After that, everyone has another 24 hours to complete their quizzes. A Google form has been created for each category's quiz, and players will receive links to their quizzes once all roles have been assigned. Filling out the form given to you for a category will start your time for that category, and you will be provided with a link to a new form through which to take the quiz itself.

Before we get to the results, I want to point out an error we made in the challenge post, specifically with the line "If two or more players hold on for the same number of questions, the person with the fastest time will prevail." This would mean that a player who answers 9 questions correctly would beat a player who answered 10 correctly if the first player had a faster time, since you only fall after two wrong answers. We intended for the number of correct answers to determine a winner before we went to time, but since those are the rules we laid out, we'll stick to them.

Despite the above error, the winning team in this challenge would have won with the above rules in place or with our intended rules in place. So it basically doesn't matter!

If it would have made a difference, we most likely would have gone with 10 correct being better than 9, since that's what a lot of people were naturally assuming anyways.

Mathemendurance


A frequent catchphrase of Mr. Johnny Bananas is "Earn your stripes". There comes a time for every player where he or she can no longer rely on the strength of their teammates, and must prove their own strength to stick around.

Everyone's going to love this twist today. Everyone currently holding a Safety Token that is. That's because everyone holding the Safety Token is safe! Everyone else is at risk where SIX players will enter the Fortress tonight. That's right, two players from EACH team will go into the Fortress to face off against each other where one player from each team will be eliminated. Three players are going home tonight, one from each team's match-up. The only way to prevent going into the Fortress is by doing well in this individual challenge. This is not a team challenge, each individual will complete this challenge to earn immunity from the Fortress. The two lowest scorers from each team will find themselves at the Fortress. The winners in the Fortress will not only return holding a Safety Token, they can mutiny to whichever of the other two teams that they wish, with the only limitation being that a team can not grow to a size of more than five players due to mutineers. More details will be revealed when the Fortress is posted.

Safety Token holders do not have to compete, but if they wish to, they can. If a Safety Token holder places outside of the bottom two, he or she can elect to give his or her token to someone on the team who places in the bottom two in order to save them. The player with the third-worst score will then enter the Fortress. Also, Purple team, because you only have three players, you will not compete in this challenge as anyone without the safety token will automatically go to the Fortress.

This challenge is a mix of endurance and mathematics. Players who can calculate equations quickly and for a long period of time will find themselves safe from this fortress. The key to success is being able to identify equations on the grid every minute and posting the equation and its answer in your thread. Once you are ready, you will be given a 5x5 grid full of numerals and mathematical symbols. During this challenge, you will create equations by using a maximum of three numerals and two mathematical symbols and then provide the answer to the equation. Once you view the grid, you will be given 1 minute to view the grid, and by the end of the minute you must post an equation and the answer to the equation. Within every minute window, you must post a new equation and its answer. This means that during every minute timestamp in your private topic, one post must be made. Each time you post a new equation, the answer must be greater in number than the previous number. You want to start with low equations at the beginning. You may start with equations with an answer of a negative number. This will continue until you either make a mistake or you fail to post an equation within the minute window. The players who go the longest will find themselves safe. But the players who fail to go the distance will find themselves going to the Fortress. The two players who have the shortest final time - measured by minutes will automatically go to the Fortress where they will fight against their teammate in a fight for survival. The tiebreak will be for the player who has the smallest range of numbers successfully used as an answer (ie: first answer is -10 and final answer is 89 will lead to a range of 99)

Please do not discuss the challenge grid or your results with other players until after results are posted.

Players have 48 hrs to initiate the endurance challenge.

Notes:
  • Equations will be calculated sign by sign. Order of operations will not qualify here. Therefore, 2-1x8=8. First 2-1 = 1, then 1x8=8.
  • Equations will have a maximum of 3 numerals and 2 symbols.
  • You must travel between adjacent cells when creating formulas, and you can't cross the same cell twice in the same formula.
  • The "/2" symbol is terminal and must be the last symbol used in an equation. It is used to take the number and it will halve that number. Your answer, however, must be a whole number.
  • The "tens" symbol will combine the two numbers on both sides of the symbol and create a two-digit number. Therefore 4 (tens) 5 will become 45. "tens" can only be used to combine two numerals together. If "tens" is used as the second symbol in the equation, it cannot be used to create a 3 digit number. Therefore the equation 2x9(tens)3=183 is invalid. However 1x9(tens)3=93 is a valid equation. Conversely 3(tens)9x1=39 is also valid.

Example:

Code: Select all
1 + 4
- 5 (tens)
2 + 8


In the above 3x3 grid, I could post first: 1-5(tens)8= -48 as my first post. 2-5+4=1 as my second post. 8(tens)5+4=89 as my third post. But if my fourth post were 8+5+4=17, I would fail at that point because 17 is lower than 89. My challenge would then be over and my time tabulated.

Unfortunately, due to V/LAs, two of the Fortress competitors were unable to complete this Fortress, and have been eliminated. We regretfully must say goodbye, but we hope to see them again in future games.

Image Image

Let's look at everyone else's scores.

Image

Cheery successfully secured 10 districts for Red in an astounding time of 5 minutes!

Image

McMenno also secured 10 districts in a time of 10 minutes.

Image

Haschel secured 10 districts, but due to 4 districts having more or less than 10 dots, his score is reduced to 6. Can PEG do better?

Image

PEG successfully secures 10 districts for Red, winning the Fortress. Haschel has been eliminated.



And now, the very important question: has anyone chosen to mutiny?

Spoiler:
Nope! Everyone is staying strong with their current teams, and the Fortress winners all receive Safety Tokens. The next challenge will begin tomorrow.

Twelve Janggi

Image Image

TWIE vs. Kdowns


Another favorite game from The Genius, today's Fortress is Twelve Janggi. Players will face off today, where the winner will return to the game and can choose to mutiny or return to their own team. Twelve Janggi is a variant of Chess, in which only 12 spaces are available between the two players. This variant is also called Dobotsu Shogi as developed by Madoka Kitao. We will be conducting this Fortress live. Please complete the following doodle to determine your availability within the next 24 hours. This Fortress will be completed in the forum and should take no more than 1-2 hrs.

In Twelve Janggi, each player starts with 4 pieces. The objective of the game is to either capture the opponent's king or advance your king to the other edge of the board. The playing board has 3 columns and 4 rows and each piece will start in their starting positions. The three spaces in the row closest to a player is their territory.

Image

The four different pieces that each player starts with in the game are the General, Minister, King, and Pawn.

Image

  • General (Begins on the Right) - It can move along any row or column (forward, backward, left, right)
  • Minister (Begins on the Left) - It can move along a diagonal (forward left, forward right, backward left, backward right)
  • King (Begins in the Center) - It can move one space either along any row or column or one space diagonally. If you capture the Opponent's King, you will win. You may also win if your own King gets to your Opponent's territory and survives one turn in that territory.
  • Pawn (Begins one space Forward) - It can only move one space forward. However, if the Man is able to get to the Opponent's territory, it will become a Feudal Lord.
  • Feudal Lord - It can move in any direction except diagonally backward. As such it may go forward, backward, left, right, diagonally forward left, diagonally forward right). If captured, it will revert to a Pawn.

Image

When the game begins, the starting player may move one square with whichever piece. The following player may then take their move. When a piece is captured by an Opponent, it will move into the Opponent's Captive Bank and can be dropped back into the game as a future turn as their own piece. However, Captive pieces may not be dropped into an occupied square or the opponent's territory. When you capture a Feudal Lord and use it as your own Captive, it will be used as a Pawn instead. Please note that the graphic below is viewing it from the referee's side. Each player should see three columns and four rows from their own viewpoint.

Image

To begin the game, the player whose team performed better in the last Challenge will be able to select going First or Second. Once the order has been selected, players will have 2 minutes per turn to move. If a player does not move within the 2 minutes, they will forfeit their turn and their Opponent may go again. We will be using the code tag to draw the board. Players are expected to demonstrate their moves using the code tag on the forum. As such, one player will be viewing the board upside-down and should remember to make moves accordingly. One player will be using capital letters, and the other will be using lower-case letters.

If a player makes an incorrect/illegal move, they are allowed to rescind the order and make the corrected move as long as it is within the 2 minutes. If a player fails to make a legal move within 2 minutes, a moderator will notify the player of the illegal move, and the player will have 1 minute within notification to make a legal move. If the player fails to make a corrected legal move within that 1 minute, they will forfeit the turn and their opponent may make their next move. It is advised for players to have a moderator on Skype during the Fortress to have the opportunity to ask questions about moves if confused. Please notify the moderators of questions in advance of the Fortress.

To make the game a bit easier to visualize, we'll use this spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

TWIE, since Yellow did better in Biohazard you choose who goes first. From this point on, you can not use outside sources or consult with other players before you move.

TWIE has chosen not to mutiny, meaning McMenno is the only person on Purple are receives the Safety Token.

As per the rules, both Blue and Yellow have 4+ members, and will each vote someone onto the Purple Team through majority vote. Safety Token holders are immune. If there is a tie, McMenno will be able to choose whoever he wants to join him, excluding Safety Token holders. You have 24 hours to cast a public vote in your team's Private Topic. You can not change your vote after posting it.

That is correct, all instances of the same sound effect will represent the same letter, and no letter is represented by more than one sound effect.

Knot So Fast


This is a favorite on The Challenge, but to adapt it to online play we'll be doing it a bit differently. In 5 minutes, both competitors will be privately sent a link to a file on Google Sheets. It will have 36 rows and 78 columns, with all the cells being fairly small and having nothing in them. Your job? Create the hardest maze possible using only the cells provided and cell borders. You will then have 20 minutes to create borders around cells any way you like to craft a maze. The only rules regarding this are as follows:

  • You cannot create new rows or columns.
  • All borders used MUST be black. Please keep thickness of border at default.
  • You must mark a start cell and a finish cell with a yellow color, neither of which necessarily need to be touching the outside border of the maze.
  • It should go without saying, but your maze must have at least one possible solution.
Once 20 minutes have gone by, your progress will be stopped, and a few minutes later both players will receive an image of their opponent's maze. You must then use your image editing software to draw a line from the start to the finish of the maze, without passing through any black borders or leaving the confines of the maze. The first player to publicly post a screenshot of the solved maze will advance to the final challenge of the game, while the loser will come up just short of a chance at victory.

You are not allowed to use other mazes as a reference, nor can you enlist other people for assistance.

Spreadsheet links will be sent via PM in 5 minutes, upon which your 20 minutes will start.

JDGA, you have won the Fortress and a spot in the final. D3f3nd3r, you came so close, but you unfortunately will not be competing with your team in the end.

JDGA, would you like to mutiny to Blue, or stay on Purple?

JDGA rejoins the Blue Team! The final challenge will be posted tomorrow. It will comprise of multiple segments, and you won't know the details of all of them until you begin. Some segments can be completed by individuals, while some require the entire team - the segments can be completed in separate sittings if necessary. Good luck, and prepare yourselves.

{Final Challenge}

Race to the Finish Line




Welcome to the final challenge. At this point no further eliminations will take place. Congratulations on making it to the finale! Your teams are all set and everything hinges on this final challenge. Everyone in the final will now be competing for their share of the $481,800 grand prize in the Challenge Circuit. I hope you feel comfortable with your team, because this is it. The final challenge will be conducted in phases and as a team, you must decide who will be responsible for completing each phase. Having more team members may benefit you, as you will have more players available to complete challenges. However, having more team members may also weigh you down. The team that finishes first will win The Challenge: Cutthroat.

There are three checkpoints involved in the final challenge. Additionally, there is one travel segment to demonstrate how quickly teams can move along the pathway to success. Please note that a checkpoint will require an image editing program and ability to upload a picture. Because all teams may not begin the final challenge at the same time, the overall winning team will be the team with the best overall finishing time.

Each team should discuss their availability with each other to determine the best time to start the final challenge. Ideally you will complete all checkpoints in one sitting unless there are significant availability difficulties. Once your start time has been decided, you may receive further instructions.

Huge thanks to everyone for playing and sticking with the game, challenge-focused games like this are by far my favorite games to run, and I'm overjoyed that people seemed to enjoy it as much as I did for the most part. We made some mistakes along the way, and we've gotten a lot of great feedback on what people liked and didn't like, and I hope that when the next Challenge game comes along in several months, we'll have a more well-oiled machine, and ideally challenges that as many people as possible will enjoy! I have to stress that this has been a phenomenal cast, and every single player was great at working with us to accommodate all the varying schedules as best as we could.

The next game in the Challenge series will be The Void, the details of which can be found in the Upcoming Game Ideas thread in this forum. It's a new format where everyone is competing to be the sole winner, and rather than duels for elimination, all members of the losing team during a team mission will enter a free-for-all battle to stay in the game. All members of the winning team in Cutthroat will have spots automatically reserved for them if they want to play, and everyone who applied for Cutthroat will be notified when The Void enters signups (it won't be for a good while).

Finally, everyone who competed in this game has been awarded virtual challenge circuit money that's totally meaningless, but check it out below if you want!
