Along with Prisca, Dusty, and Vance, the BB Randomizer has selected:

The Sacred Pillow
Lester Sweetums
and Princess Spatula

to play in this Veto competition. It’s called The Lottery.

We tried this game in BB1 for a POV competition, but I screwed it up by including a role that clever players used to break the game. Which is too bad, cause I think it would make a good POV comp otherwise, so I’m going to give it another shot now and take that bad role out. If it’s still screwed up, at least we’ll probably get another name for the next Memorial edition.

Every turn, I will choose a Lottery Winner, and the other five players will choose their roles from the others I describe here.

Lottery Winner: Selected at random to die. They won’t need to do anything that turn; I’ll tell them and no one else they’ve been selected, and they can do with that information what they wish.
Rock-Hurler: It only takes one rock-hurler to kill the Lottery Winner, but if there’s more than one hurler, one will also randomly die from an errantly-thrown rock. Can be overridden by Conscientious Objectors.
Conscientious Objector: If there are as many or more objectors as there are rock-hurlers, then they overthrow the system and up to two hurlers are killed instead of the Lottery Winner…unless someone chooses Conformist Gone Mad.
Conformist Gone Mad: A snitch. If someone chooses Conformist, the Objectors will be caught and one will be selected randomly to die. However, the Conformist will die too, as the others put a hit out on him. If there’s more than one Conformist, one will be selected at random to die. The Lottery Winner and Hurlers will all survive in this case.
Nonsub: If you don’t choose any role by the end of a turn, you’ll die that turn in addition to whatever other deaths there are. For every two turn submissions you miss, you will receive one BB strike.

If there are no rock-hurlers to make the kill: One each of the Objectors and Conformists, if available, will be chosen randomly to die.

At the end of each turn, I’ll post how many of each role was picked, and the identities and roles of those who died that turn.

Unlike the original game, no one’s being eliminated from this game for “deaths”. Rather, you’ll all play each turn, and the player who has died the fewest number of times at the end will win this Power of Veto. If there’s a tie for fewest deaths, the winner will be the player among those who was chosen as the Lottery Winner the most times. If that’s a tie, we’ll go back to the BB Random Number Generator.

I want to get this challenge completed without taking too much time. I’m planning on running five turns, and we’ll do one a day – that means a Saturday deadline this weekend unless somebody tells me it’s utterly impossible for them to play this until Sunday. If everyone gets moves in early, and I’m not sleeping yet, we can always move forward quicker. The first turn will be due Saturday at 8 PM Central.
