Sorry I took so long, Houseguests. It was harder than I expected to keep coming up with BOB games I liked that weren’t going to take effing forever. But first, your nominations:
May Danderfluff: “I’ve chosen to nominate Jameson Handytrousers and The Sacred Pillow for elimination.”
Christy Bubblepumpkin: “I will nominate Carlos and Spatula.”
Jameson and Pillow will face Carlos and Spatula in a repurposed Gods and Mortals challenge: All on the Line. In this case, we’re not doing “Gods” and “Mortals”; in the BB House, you’re all Mortals. So Jameson and Carlos will be “Category A” and Pillow and Spatula will be “Category B”.
There’s a number line from 1-500. You will place yourself on an integer. This is the entirety of what I need from you.
Your score will be as such:
The distance from your fellow category above or below you + the distance to the closest player from the other category.
If you sit on the same space as your category, you will both get zero for the first aspect of the challenge. If you sit on the same space as one from the other category, you’ll get a zero for that part.
If you’re closest to the beginning, your points will be equal to your distance from zero. If you’re closest to the end, your points will be equal to your distance from 501. These are both unless you’re doubled up.
There’s an example round here, although that involves many more hypothetical players, of course. This could be weird with much fewer, or it could be cool.
The final caveat I will add is that the winning BOB team is whichever one has the individual with the highest score. Make sense? This is not a collective or added together score, in other words.
Send me your numbers by Tuesday night at 8 PM Central. If you don’t send me anything, of course, you will receive one BB strike.
