Challenge #3 and Calendar of Upcoming Events.
As I am sure you are all aware, this is the final challenge for Survivor XI - The Brain.
As if I hadn't been more than generous enough to the three of you giving you thousands of Pola Bucks along the journey, I am giving you the last installment of $500 Pola Bucks to start this challenge.
You will be gambling this money on the dreadful week 17 in the NFL on Sunday. Whoever has the most on Sunday night will be guaranteed a spot in the final two, and will get to choose who goes with him.
Tomorrow, Friday, and Saturday you will get a chance to earn more money to gamble with.
Each of you will choose one team, either underdog or favorite, that play on each day. All you have to do is pick the winner of one game, but each of you will be picking the favorite or the underdog for a different game.
If the team you choose was the Favorite, and wins, you will get an extra $150 to use on Sunday.
If the team you choose was the Underdog, and wins, you will get an extra $250 to use on Sunday.
So Thursday, December 27th (Patrick Sharp's birthday), the order that you will choose your pick is:
Friday, Dec 28th (Ced Benson's birthday) the order will be:
And Saturday the order will be
(There are 5 games on Saturday, you may choose any of the 5 games, but we will only be using 3 for the challenge)
Come Sunday, I will have spreads up for 15 NFL games (less the night game).... Whoever has the least amount of money (and in the case of a tie whoever's 3 teams scored the least amount of points) will get to place their bet first. They play play a spread or a total, and once they do - that game is off the board. You must bet a minimum of $100 per game.
You do not have to bet all of your money, but you must make a minimum of 3 bets OR spend all of your money. So if the first person puts it all on one bet... The other two will still be choosing games they want to play until they have made at least 3 bets or bet all of their money.
Sunday Bets will have $50 increments.
So for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday's bonus money... Whoever is up will announce the team they are taking in the thread. I'm going to ask that whoever's first has their pick in by 9AM, second by 10AM, and third by 11AM. (You can always just pick all three games early if you have to, since you can only be picking one game anyways when it gets to your turn)
SUNDAY Night after a winner is deemed.... The winner will have until Monday at 8AM to decide who he is taking with him to the final two. The person who he takes with him will have from 8AM until 2:30PM MONDAY to tell the members of the jury why he should be Survivor XI Champion. From 2:30PM until 8:00PM the winner of this challenge will get a chance to plead his case....
And the jury will get to go out celebrating new years, and make a hung over decision on Tuesday for who they want to be the Survivor Champion, which I will announce that night, if I make it to 2013.
Good luck gents.
