Participants who have signed up:
- "There are no rules" would be the right idea for a mindset that participants should employ.
- ANYONE COULD BE LYING AT ANY TIME.
- There will be several rounds, each with a different challenge. Usually, one participant will be "killed" as a result of a challenge, while the rest move on to the next challenge. But more than one can die at a time. If there are only a small handful of players, the event of a tie between all players in a trial may allow all players to survive without being eliminated.
- Plentiful time will be given for each round, and may be extended at request by need of participants or host. Time given for one challenge may differ from another.
- The host may provide info related to their challenges to create something of a jigsaw puzzle where those with good alliances, tactics, and judgement will be most successful.
- The game will end with 2 players left alive after one last challenge to determine the two winners from any remaining survivors. If there are only a small handful of players, it might be possible to only have 1 winner.
- Communication between players is basically open and encouraged. However, the dead should not speak of any game details they may have found out while participating as it may ruin it for others.
- The host may choose specific challenges to award a clear-cut winner of the challenge an advantage in the next challenge, however small it may be. These will be announced at the start of a challenge and will not happen often.
The First Trial:
Each player will be classified by a "Group Name". I will message each player their own "Group Name" (Blue Barracudas, Silver Snakes, or Green Monkeys). Each person will have to send me a forum message (not a comment or a broadcast status in order to keep info sent separated from others) listing each player and what "Group Name" they belong to. It will be up to you to find out the info of the other players, as you are only given your own. Only correct info is counted at the end, so guessing info or sending info that was given to you falsely has no worse effect than not answering at all. The player with the least amount of correct info will be killed. In the case of a tie, the winning player or players will determine which player with the least amount of correct info will be killed. If all players tie, everyone will survive to compete in the second trial.
You have slightly more than 72 hours (will be slightly longer due to my work schedule and when I get home to officially move to the next part of the start of the game) to ask questions about any rules, join the game if you have not yet, and communicate with other players in effort to establish alliances and/or formulate strategies. After that time is up, the next step will be for me to send info out to everyone for the first trial and establish the time frame for the trial to be completed.
