    Ok, you folks have had an easy time the last week. Time to get back into action, methinks.

    This weeks involves both group and individual tasks, and rewards for each.


    INDIVIDUAL

    This week, BB introduces you to... THE GAUNTLET (Big Brother Edition)

    If you're not sure of how the game is played, check out GAUNTLET 4 for a general idea.

    But here's the basic rules:

    =============
    THE GAUNTLET
    =============

    ======
    RULES
    ======

    1. The game will occur 3 times a day, with the specific times picked by you guys -- whatever works best for the 7 of you.

    2. As soon as it's the pre-determined game time, the game automatically begins.

    3. Everyone who plays in any given game must post ONCE only in the first 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes is up, you may re-post -- until the first 20 replies are registered. (the amount can be altered if required)

    4. Before the game begins, I will have already chosen 2 numbers at random between 1-20. Whichever user's post lands on the numbers I've secretly picked will have run the gauntlet and FAILED. The result of this failing? Well, I won't ban you guys like the regular game, but you will lose all your accumulated points up until that point.

    5. Each post in the first 30 minutes is worth 2 points, each post after 30 minutes is worth 1. There will also be 2 BONUS numbers which double the points.

    6. The game will run from today until Thursday. The top 4 housemates will then move into the Semi's, and then the Final, both to be played on Friday.

    7. The BB GAUNTLET winner will recieve a NOMINATION FREE card, (which basically means the winner is immune from being nominated for next week), plus the prestige of joining Gen. Madine's Hairpiece, Pyrus,Genghis12 and Jedi knight Pozzi as GAUNTLET Champions.



    And:

    GROUP

    As a group, you must:

    1. Create your own JC game, in the same spirit as the GAUNTLET, Mafia, etc. (Yes, the same thing as last week, but now it's part of the task)

    2. Start 2 NEW individual threads EACH per day -- 1 personal thread and 1 thread of any other subject.


    ... and, well, the points system is scrapped. Instead, if you complete the task successfully, you'll be allowed to invite another sleepover guest next week -- for 2 nights instead of 1. How's that sound? Am I nice or am I nice?

    That's it for now, peoples. Remember, pick 3 times for the GAUNTLET to run each day -- whatever time is best for all of you. The GAUNTLET will begin officially tomorrow.

    -BB

    I'm not and it's still pretty confusing. I think I get it now though, the hardest part will be deciding on three times when pretty much all of us are on-line.

    Yeah. I think the only time we're all (might be all) online is around 4 / 5 pm board time.

    Yeah I think around 5:00 board time is probably the best time, but we still have to come up with two more times during the day.

    Actually, something like that might make the most sense except that I think Erik is usually asleep then, so that wouldn't really be fair to him.

    The thread part is fairly simple I think. We all have to start two threads per day, one has to be a personal thread involving some aspect of our own lives, the other can be anything we want.

    Do you mean the house as a whole starts 2, or each person starts two? If each person, that will be easy :)

    Hmmm yeah, I guess that part wasn't very clear. I took it to mean that we each had to start two threads per day, but now I'm not so sure.

    Well, I assume he means each. Anyone mind if I start one, or should I wait until tomorrow?

    Well, it says "2 individual threads EACH", so knowing what I know about English, that means we're all going to have to come up with two threads.

    As for inventing a game: bah.

    Yeah it's got to be each person, and I'm assuming we're supposed to start today so go for it Bo.

    As for the game, I agree with Casper :D

    Maybe we can just roll with Meg's idea.

    I agree, any time after 5 pm board time for the Gauntlet game would probably accomodate the most people. I can't get online any time before that on weekdays.

    I think epic might just have to pick three times for us and whoever can make it will. But definitely one of the times should be around 5:00.

    As for the two threads per day, we were each supposed to do that every day right? I don't think Casper got that part, or was that not supposed to start until tomorrow as well?

    Well, if that starts tomorrow, count mine for then.

    I must have missed that part. That's what I get for jumping around the first post. :p

    Well he only actually said that the gauntlet starts to start tomorrow, but I think the whole thing should just start tomorrow, in which case we could count mine, Meg's and Bo's for tomorrow as well.

    :D

    I kind of thought it was a bit much too. That's 70 new threads by friday!

    I know! I wish we could do something else besides start new threads.

    Yeah, I'm kind of running out of personal threads... you guys already know pretty much everything there is to know about me. And as far as discussing "other" things goes we do that all the time anyway. We don't need to start a new thread to discuss something, I think we're pretty good at having conversations.

    :D

    Oh well, we're pretty wiped out here, didn't get much sleep last night so i think we're going to call it a night. See you tomorrow! :)

    Okay so we don't have to start making threads until tomorrow? I'll probably do some tonight anyway if I think of something, but just in case the internet dies again or something, it's fine if I don't have two threads up by tonight?
