Man, religion brings out the best in this crew every time. I wanted another medal to give. Gilman said the same. Brendan didn’t say it specifically, but he probably sent me a nonverbal cue that I should have noticed.

With the stories as strong as they were, scoring was a very interesting 9-6-6-6 affair (666 in the religious challenge…ahem).

Enjoy.

So, here’s the deal. With but a single signup mention on one of my FB groups, I already have eleven classically Facebook-game players signed up. I don’t even know a few of them. As such, I’m leaning toward doing two games at once with the same challenges running. Idiotic? Sure! However, if a ton of people from here sign up, that won’t be necessary.

I have a lot of weird ideas for this one, so play along, won’t you? Declare intent wherever you usually talk to me, and as always (perhaps more than ever), if you have a new player of even middling potential, let them know as well.

It’s also an option for me to just run a game over there, while allowing you guys to play if you like, while we run a few Cutthroat Junction games and…oh, I don’t know…Werewolf. It all depends on signup numbers, which have been a bit thinner here in the last year or so.

I have the results! I won’t make you wait.

Here they are.

If there is a second tie tonight, and I have no reason yet to believe there will or won’t be, to be clear, I will have a live Google Hangout for the random.org draw for the sake of transparency. I would post the vote, then immediately email all players still in the game (including jury) for what would be an imminent “rock draw.” See you tonight either way, gang.

I thought I had this great new challenge idea, but as I thought more about it, I realized it’s essentially slightly-changed wording to an old favorite of mine. But let’s toss someone into the jury room first…

Vote One: Matt Novak. “You’re carrying a big gun in this game. You can’t fault me for respecting your shot.”

Vote Two: Christina Pepper. “Not because I want to, and not because she’s the biggest threat. No, I’m voting for her because the biggest threats in this game are the hidden strategists, not the writers. That’s always really the way of it. I wanted Vogons to vogon, but that’s not how it’s going to be. Maybe this works. Maybe it doesn’t. But it’s the game the strategists brought. And whether this works or not, everyone left is a real player. Everyone. And everyone else should know that about each other. As of right now, if I were on the jury, there isn’t a single person I wouldn’t vote for. History means squat, and that’s the way it should be. Because this game right here? No matter how this vote goes, no matter how little I actually know, no matter how honest anyone has been with each other… this game just became a real game of survivor.”

Vote Three: Matt Novak. “With no smart ass comments, Novak.”

Vote Four: Christina Pepper. “Sorry, lady. Mad respect.”

Vote Five: Matt Novak.

3 for Novak and 2 for Pepper heading under the jump…

Three different gold-getting stories this time, gang; we spread the love around to make sure a bunch of you felt special. It was a tight four-way race to immunity, but indeed, one person outscored the others with no tiebreaker necessary.

Side note: this was about as easy a time as I’ve ever had noticing who wrote what. I never do this intentionally, but it happens. DK and Annette were the two that I didn’t get right away, but through process of elimination I guessed correctly where they were sitting.

Let’s get experimental, dudes.

Had a podcast to record tonight, so this is the entire opening bit.

Vote One: Annette Barron. “Unsuccessfully again, I’m sure”

Vote Two: Bret Highum. “My vote is for Bret, but I’d like him to keep submitting stories anyway. That’s not unreasonable, is it?”

You know, you can write tiebreaker rules, and still end up with ties. There are three immune parties, rather than two. For the next challenge, we’ll expand tiebreakers, just in case.

Some of you felt a little pressed for time here, but many of you used your words to the fullest.

Let’s see who did what.
