For your next challenge, somebody again suggested a challenge oriented around a food item – this time, pies. I told them since I made up a whole challenge myself just based on “cookies!”, they could make this one up themselves this time. So, they did. Here it is:
1-2-3-4, I Declare a Pie War!
Confectionery-based warfare dates back centuries, though its illustrious history has long been suppressed. Yet even legendary samurai Minamoto Yoshitsune is rumored to have shot arrows tipped with sweetened rice balls. For what shuts up an enemy faster than a tasty dessert in the face?
In this challenge, you’ll be creating pies and hurling them at your fellow players. The player who is able to subdue the other players in the most delicious fashion is the winner.
Each player begins the challenge with 10 points. These points can be used in two different ways: pie making and pie blocking.
Stage 1—Pie Making
Each player will make two pies. You get to choose just how delicious your pies will be. You can allot anywhere between 1 and 10 points for deliciousness—the more points you allot, the tastier your wares! But keep in mind that your efforts are split between two pies. So if a player devotes 3 points to pie making, each of that player’s two pies will be rated a 1.5.
For this stage, you simply need to submit how many points you want to spend on your pies. A submission might look like this: “I would like to use 3 points for pie making.”
No information will be posted at the end of this stage.
Stage 2—Pie Throwing and Blocking
Ready, aim, fire! You need to decide who to attack with those mouthwatering pies of yours. You must attack two different players and you cannot attack yourself.
Now, you certainly won’t be defenseless in the face of all that deliciousness heading your way. Each player will use all remaining points to block. But here’s where things get interesting—you can also assist in blocking other players. You can divvy up the blocking in any way you want as long as you’re using integers (no fractions!).
You’ll submit your throws and blocks together. So a submission for this stage might look like this: “Attack Bob and Kim. 4 points to block myself. 3 points to block Pat.” (Except you’ll of course use names of actual players in this game.)
Stage 3—The Messy Results
The total number of points in the pies thrown at a player will be subtracted from the total number of points used for blocking that player. Posted results will reveal these numbers but not who attacked which players or who provided blocking points for other players.
The two players with most points remaining will win immunity. In the case that all players end up with negative numbers of points, the players with the number of points closest to zero (i.e. the smallest negative numbers) will win immunity. Should more than two players tie for the most points remaining, the two players who made the most delicious pies will receive immunity. Should there still be a tie, they winner will be the one of those tied in points who had the highest number of others’ pies thrown at them. If there’s still a tie after that, we’ll only have one or even zero immunities.
Stage 1 will be due tomorrow (Thursday) night at 8 PM Central. Nothing will be posted and you won’t get any information via email unless somebody nonsubs Stage 1. Stage 2 will then be due Sunday night at 8 PM Central. Happy pie throwing, Survivors.
