Congratuations to those of you who made the first cut! As for the rest of you - particularly those 10 or so that didn't even turn in answers - I'm very disappointed in you. Okay... I'm over it. You have now been placed in three teams of eight. For those of you who haven't played before (and even for some of you that have), just a little note on how this works. Challenges will now be tribe-based. Each member of the tribe will receive team challenges, but the goal is to turn in answers as a tribe. There may be challenges where each tribe-member may be required to provide something, but you will or lose immunity on a tribal basis. At the end of the round one tribe will win immunity. The other TWO tribes will go to tribal council and must each vote off one of their members. Each member of the tribe has ONE VOTE, which will be sent to the host in charge of the round via PM. Spoiler THE RULES: (for you lucky non-Survivor fans): The group of 24 is randomly divided into two tribes of 8 or three tribes of 8. The tribes will receive team challenges (instructions for challenges will be explained for each challenge). Right answers during challenges will obviously earn points and wrong answers will be worth none. The tribe with the most points at the end of the round wins immunity. The TWO tribes with the least points must each vote off one of their members via PM. Also, in this game... immunity may be decided by something other than trivia. You will be completely briefed on this before it happens, so don't fret. In the event of any ties, first team with their answers in will win... unless stated differently. Hype! Survivor is a game of both strategy and deception. Alliances are both permitted, and encouraged. So find a friend, and knock them up pretty good. As a side note: alliances can be with any of the 23 players... doesn't matter who they are... doesn't matter what tribes they're on... just make sure it's someone you trust... or not. As the old saying goes: keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. The final Jury will be composed of 7 people (everyone voted off after there are 9 members remaining). The Jury will vote on the final two remaining players to find the winner of the Hype! Survivor. A note on cheating: It's very easy to cheat in this game. Very, very easy. Some of the rounds will be much more difficult to cheat at than others (some will be downright impossible to cheat on). USE OF THE INTERNET IS FORBIDDEN IN ANSWERING QUESTIONS!! If you feel you have to cheat, by all means, go ahead... but if you're caught, yer out. This is my game and I maybe switching team members, amending rules and making rules up as I go along. I will promise, why I probably may like some of you more than others, I will be as fair and unbiased as humanly possible. Each one of these games seems to have some sort of controversy. Anyway, this is suppose to be fun, but if there is some crying, btching that results so much the better. And now what you've all be waiting for: The Tribes Tribe 1: Movies205, DT!, Fran, Badger, Monster, JewishHobbit, Scarlet Spidey, Cowleen Tribe 2: StorminNorman, Kalel114, Kipobe, Jimmy, Dr. Watson, Superman79, TV's Frank, Ahura Mazda Tribe 3: knowsbleed, Matt, Chasester, Mee, Avangarde X, JStorm, Tron5000, The Original Bamfer PMs with detailed instructions for this challenge will be sent in just over 2 hours. In those you will find out more information about your tribes (like names, captains, etc.). Meanwhile... talk amongst yourselves... get to know your tribe... take a nap... it's really up to you.
