Welcome to TD 321! This one will play using the standard TD rules, with a major TWIST thrown in (more later). So, to the basics: you are to provide an answer to each of the questions that follow. The goal of the game is to choose answers that the fewest number of other players do. The score you will receive on each question is equal to the total number of people who gave the same answer. An incorrect answer will score a score equal to the SHEEP (most popular answer) score plus 5 points. You also have the option of answering DROP to one question, entitling you to a score of zero for that question. You also can answer SHEEP to one question to receive the score that the SHEEP answer gets.
And, now, for the TWIST. In true Reality TV fashion, this TD will be played as an elimination tournament. How are you eliminated? An incorrect answer will eliminate you immediately. Alternatively, you will be eliminated after your second SHEEP response. So, two SHEEPs or one incorrect and you're gone from the island. However, I will keep tallying your score even after elimination. I do this for two reasons. Firstly, I will also score this game the traditional way for a comparison. Moreover, should an eliminated player score TWO SINGLETONS after elimination, they're back from exile. The winners of the game will be those players who have staved off elimination with the lowest scores. ADDITION: The responses of eliminated players will be used in computing the scores of all players To make the gameplay enjoyable, most of the questions in this TD are of the accessible sort. One other twist: each successive question will have fewer correct answers than the previous one (barring one instance where they have the same), meaning that it will grow increasingly more difficult to avoid SHEEPing as the game progresses.
Your answers should be submitted to me by PM by no later than Sunday, Nov. 27 at MIDNIGHT EST (9:00 pm PST, etc.). And, of course, you are strictly enjoined to come up with your answers using only your own brain cells: no Google, no phone-a-friend, etc.
