It's that time again!

This season is called "Game Changers - The Mamanuca Islands. Everyone is a returnee in one way or another, back for another try at the million dollars. It's a good mix of people from past winners to folks who didn't make it to the jury, but made a splash in their time on the island. It's two tribes of 10, so I'll need 19 other players to join in. 'The Rules' will be in the post underneath this one. Premier is March 8!

"The Rules" (stolen/updated from last season's thread)

It's pretty easy to quickly pick up. I take the first 19 people to respond that they'd like to play, and put their name into the list at the top. I then put that list into a random list generator to spit back at me a randomly mixed up version of that list for picking.

I start at the top of that list and everyone picks one person. The only rule there is that you can't pick someone who's already been picked. Once we get to the bottom of the list (so all CP players have picked one of the Survivor Contestants) we go back UP the list from the bottom, so that the player on the bottom gets the 'last' pick in the first round, but the first pick in the second. As the Survivors are eliminated, so are the CP Players. Each CP Player will get 2 Survivors, so we end up with 2 CP winners splitting a virtual million bucks and bragging rights for the Season.

I will usually give a person 24 hours to make their pick before they drop to the bottom. I'm not generally TOO draconian about the 24 hour pick rule. I base the "24 hour" time period off the post of the previous picker. So if I pick at 12 noon on the first, and you picked after me, you'd have to have your pick posted by 12 noon on the second. Since I don't live on the computer, it's generally 24 hours + the next time I check the thread. To further the previous example, if you miss your noon deadline, but get your pick at 1pm and I log on and check the thread at 2pm, I'll still count it. If I log on and don't see a pick from you, then you miss your pick slot and drop to the bottom of the list. (FYI, I hate dropping players, please don't miss your pick!). I also understand that a lot of people only use/check CP during the week, so during the weekend I tend to suspend the 24 hour rule. Picking can still continue of course, but I try not to 'punish' people for having a life during the weekend.

I PM everyone that the picking has started, and ask the players to keep an eye on both this thread and their inbox. I ask that whoever makes their pick PM's the next person on the list so that they know they are up.

If you know that you aren't going to be around to make your pick on time, you can PM me an ordered list of who you'd like picked, and I can place your pick for you based on that list and who remains to be picked. I do not release this list publicly so that your strategy/picks remain somewhat secret.

This is a for-fun, low pressure thing to give us all a little something extra to cheer for. I like to keep it pretty simple and fun. The thread, usually after picking, turns into the "Survivor discussion thread" while the series is ongoing. If you haven't seen the weeks episode yet, I highly advise avoiding this thread as there is usually "up to the minute" updates as soon as the earliest CP member finishes watching (which is totally cool).

Any questions I am happy to deal with. Any disputes I will almost always deal with. If there's a huge "thing" that comes up, I'd put it to the other players for thoughts.

If you'd like some examples, check out a couple of the other Survivor threads I've started. They illustrate quite nicely how this version of CP's Survivor Pool is run/runs.

Oh, and as a note for the players...I don't (and don't need to) 'confirm' every pick. When you get your PM that it's your turn, or if you are browsing the thread and notice it's your turn, take your turn. I update the main post on a 'when I can' basis, not after every pick.

In. Hopefully Sandra gets taken out early and doesn't get to goat her way to a third win.

In the new age of Survivor people like her are picked off fast, the new players are no dumbies!

Yeah, I got a bit of a jump on this time, instead of scrambling around 3 weeks before the show starts and as this is a known crew, we'll have stuff we can talk about before hand and during picking.

Good call. I thought they usually start in February, so I was surprised to see it that late when I looked.

Oh, and Amazing Race looks to finally be coming back April 21, 2017!

They said that they started late because of a new reality show starting in January: Hunted? Haven't seen anything about it...

I read a preview for it. It sounded really contrived and staged. Zero interest unless it has really good reviews.
