Welcome to Gridiron Dynasty Survivor X: Tournament of Champions

Survivor X - Tournament of Champions has a mix of the most experienced players in the game, along with a few new players. This season's theme will be a "General" theme, somewhat based off of themes from the past Survivors.  Although the theme is always sports, in order to gain an edge you will need additional knowledge in  the following categories:  Movies, Books, Music, and Games.  Thanks to dubs and bfkfraser for the past work they have put into the game, and muddapucka for originiating the concept.

  And here are the rules:

"Remember that the goal is to Outwit, Outthink and Outplay each other, not the rules themself. I will try to quickly clear up any questions, but I am hoping that you all understand that I intend to follow the spirit of what these rules clearly should mean, and not end up in an argument of semantics. Once again, you are playing each other, not me.


1) Gridiron Dynasty Survivor has three types of immunity: Gridiron Immunity, Hidden Immunity and Challenge Immunity. Each of these immunities has different rules associated with it that shall be explained in the rules.

2) Challenges for immunity will be held every Friday, Sunday and Tuesday. They will be posted at before 10AM EST, or the night before, and will run varying lengths of time, though not exceeding that one day. There will be no ties for Challenge Immunity. Only one tribe or contestant can win it. I will have tiebreakers contained within each challenge.

3) Voting for expulsion of a player will be held every Saturday, Monday and Wednesday. You may vote from 12 a.m. EST on those days until 6 p.m. EST. You cannot change your vote. Therefore, there are reasons that you may not want to vote immediately.

4) Here’s one of those reasons now. You may transfer Challenge Immunity (this can only be done once we enter the individual section of challenge immunity, not when it is tribe vs. tribe.) If you win individual immunity on a Friday, Sunday or Tuesday, you have from the end of that challenge until 6 a.m. the next day (a full six hours into the voting window) to give that immunity to another player. You must transfer this immunity in the thread for all to see. It can only be transferred by the person who won it. So if Person A wins it and gives it to Person B, Person B cannot then give it to anyone else.

5) Here’s another of those reasons. If you win a National Title at Gridiron Dynasty while this game is going on, you win immunity. If you win that National title on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday, you have immunity from Saturday’s vote. If you win that National title on a Sunday or Monday, you have immunity from Monday’s vote. If you win that National title on a Tuesday or Wednesday, you have immunity from Wednesday’s vote.

5a) This means it is possible that you will win immunity around three in the afternoon for a vote that is due at 6 p.m. EST. If you have already voted for someone who has immunity, you can’t change your vote. You need to pay attention to who may be playing for a national title and what the halftime score is. If you take the chance to vote for someone that has a chance to win a national title, and they do, that’s your fault.

5b) Your national title is only good for the next vote in the game. If you win a National Title and your tribe already has immunity from the next vote, you don’t get to save it.

5c) Only National titles won with the name you are playing this game with count. No national titles won as a cocoach count.

6) There likely will be hidden immunity idols throughout the game. I will notify you when you have found one. You can pass the hidden immunity idols from person to person, but you have to tell me who has them. You cannot hand it to someone and say I give it to them for one day. You give it to them, or you don’t. If you give it to them, and they later choose to give it back, that’s great, but you can’t stipulate before you hand it to them.

6a) If you have a hidden immunity idol, you will have three hours to play it between 6 p.m. EST on the day of a expulsion vote and 9 p.m. EST. This period comes directly after the voting period. You must post in the thread that you are playing it, and the person making the post must be the one I am aware has the idol. If you moved it and didn’t tell me, I won’t recognize you playing it. I will simply announce that person does not have an idol. You cannot transfer it to that person after this point. You missed the opportunity.  If you play it, any votes against you will be thrown out and the rest of the votes will be counted with the top vote getter being ousted. Not all immunity idols are created equal.

6b) If you play the hidden immunity idol, and it was not necessary to protect you from a vote, you will not get it back. I will rehide it.

6c) If you do not play the hidden immunity idol, and you get the most votes, you are out, and the immunity idol goes home with you. I will not announce to anyone that it has disappeared.

6d) The hidden immunity idol can take you no further than the Final Four. You can’t play it if there are less than five people left in the game.

7) When we have expulsion votes that you are involved in, you must vote, and you may not vote for yourself. If you miss two votes in the game, you are out. Even if you have immunity, if it is your second missed vote, you are out.

8) During the tribe section, we will have tribe captains. I will declare who the first captains are in the subsequent posts. The captains are responsible for declaring who will sit out challenges if their tribe has more people. If the captains are voted out, the remaining player with the most total votes received during the entire competition will become captain. If there is a tie, the first person alphabetically will be captain.

9) I have Thursdays reserved to throw in some twists along the way, so don’t get too comfortable. If you see a question that you need clarified now, please let me know."

10) The tubby7242 rule:  Only one moniker per person.  Those violating this rule will be caught and tied to a post for all others to throw stones at.

Information Regarding the Hidden Immunity Idols

In the past, questions always have arose about the Immunity Idols, and how they work.  In addition to the rules regarding the passing and playing of idols above, I wanted to explain the process of the immunity idols so everyone has a fair shake.

Each challenge will have a theme, relating to Movies, Books, Music, or Games.

Every challenge is going to be sports related.  However, the tiebreaker of each challenge will relate to that challenge's theme.  The team that wins the challenge will also receive Idol clues if that team also correctly answers the theme tiebreaker.

Some information regarding the idol clues:  
  • The hidden idol will be in or on a specific location in a movie, or a book, or a song, or a game.  You must not only know the name of the movie, book, song, or game, but also the specific location of where it was found.  
  • If you think you know where the idol is located, you can guess in the thread.  You can guess multiple locations per post, but I recommend that you do not EDIT previous posts to guess.  If you guess the correct answer first, someone guess it after you, and you edit and add 5 more answers... By the time I see it you will have "Edited" the post and I will award it to the person with the unedited post.
  • Each person on the  winning tribe receiving idol clues will all receive a different, random clue.  No clue will be any good by itself, so sharing clues wit be necessary to finding the location of the idol.  However:  Things to keep in mind....  Only 1 Person can actually Find the idol.  Because of this, don't be surprised if traded clues are not actual clues given by me.
A New way that the Idols work this time around:

There are 4 Idols.  Each has a different Strength and Weakness. Some of the idols will not work in the presence of another idol.  The person who finds the idol will know if his idol is more or less powerful than others. 

One of the Idols, when played, can be used to protect two people from a vote (Other than the person playing the idol)
One of the idols, when played, will provide that person immunity for two consecutive challenges (regardless if he is up for vote in the second challenge)
One of the Idols, when played, will provide that person immunity and show the person that played it where all of the other idols are located in the game (who has them).
The most powerful idol undoubtedly will protect the person playing it, since no other idol can negate its worth if played at the same time, and it will negate any other idol's "power".

I will never reveal when any or all idols are found.  Only the person finding it will know.  However, I will continue to send out idol clues for idols that have already been found, so others may be able to find out where the idol was located, thus knowing who has it.

Never played, but put me in if there's an opening.

Sorry, but i need to withdraw myself. I have suffered an injury that will be taking too much time for me to do this.
10/7/2011 10:43 AM
Changed my mind.  I'll give it a go.
10/8/2011 12:41 AM
