First episode was great, and I was happy to see the first eliminated player was who it was, as he gave me an arrogant rear end in a top hat vibe. Though that wasn't even entirely his fault unless he was insisting that they get his IQ correct as if 3 points really needed a correction and fawning over for his introduction. The jump cuts to his twitching face might have had a lot to do with it too. The only better way to dunk that guy would have been the last trader giving him the 0.
Yeah, my roommate and I were both happy that player was eliminated.

Just finished episode 4 of S1, I was thinking 'hey, the players kinda get eliminated with no montage or anything that's a shame'... then they hit me with that. Oh drat you. Best ep so far, even if I struggle to keep up with the tactical death match game.

Does 2x01 reveal the winner or any spoilers for s1? If not, I might watch the new eps as they air as well rather than catch up in a week or two.

Since ep1 is already out, do we really need spoilers? Sangmin as the snake was perfect, since it gave him the opportunity to sit around laughing all day and observing people.

I think the general politeness rule for staggered watching shows like this, is the spoiler bars are used until the next episode is released. So after episode 2 is subbed, everyone can talk about episode 1 without the spoilers.

Wow, they did not hold back for season two, the Food Chain game was quite complex with all the animal specific rules and winning conditions. The group looks great too and I really need to start watching Infinite Challenge, Hongchul is amazing. One minute in I already loved the guy.

I was not quite sure what happened in the last round with Jinwon and the girl, did he just keep talking until the time was up and she forgot to actually attack him

Discussing what happened at the end of the Food Chain game :
Can't check for the exact setup right now, but it was basically this : There were 4 people left, not counting Sangmin (the snake) - 2 predators and 2 prey. The 2 prey both had the rule of "if all the prey that are alive are in the Field at the same time, they can't be eaten." Jinwon could have been eaten if she had eaten him immediately. but since she waited until the other prey in the other room was eaten, Jinwon was now the only alive prey left, and he was in the Field, so he could no longer be eaten."

As much as I want it to be Yoonsun's more cooperative attitude that won her the victory I think it was mostly luck in having a 10 card in her first four and the crucial winning card being with one of her team members.

I agree that there was a large component of luck but Yoonsun's cooperative attitude won her the victory. Hwee Jong got nominated even though Da Hye and Ji Won were on his team with Ji Won outright saying that it was because he was too aggressive.

I have to watch it again but doesn't one of his own team members lie to him and give him a lovely card?

It was especially satisfying to see him lose since, as a mathematician, he should have figured out that there weren't enough prey for the four predators to survive and that he needed to eat or remove two of the predators instead of the prey.

Has anyone found or made a list of the animals and their skills/attributes/win conditions? Sounds like something you could play at a party (with a very specific number of people).

"Ruin," as in spoil. If you are watching the first season and don't want to know who wins, the post is blatant enough as to spoil it. Like what happened with Bromance and his question.

I couldn't stop smiling. That was when I knew this was no ordinary show.

I'm binging through season 1, just finished episode four. I like how this show broadens the concept of a genius as someone who can charm people as well as out-think them. The standup comedian and the George Michael guy are running poo poo so far.

Oh man, that ep 2 preview looks bonkers.

They sit on chairs in a circle, everyone has a number 1 to 11 and 1 person has an X. Every round they can exchange seats by mutual agreement and at the end a chain of exactly 5 consecutive numbers (9-10-11-1-2 is valid) sitting next to each other must be made with the X breaking any sequence. If not, all numbers go up 1 with 11 becoming X and X becoming 1. The chain of 5 that is eventually made all win with the person in the middle getting 10 bonus garnets and the hint. The person with the X when the chain of 5 is made loses. Numbers are secret and only the length of the longest series is revealed every round so information is minimal but should just be enough for a really smart player keeping track.

Best part: they keep going until a chain of exactly 5 is made and from the snippets in the preview it's going to be a LONG day.

I also wanted to check in and say that this game is awesome. Loved the first episode of season 2. I was also worried that the second season cast would not be as good. I hope Noh Hong-Chul stays for a long time because they need people that are funny to cut down on the tension in the game. I would really like to see Ha Ha on this show based on his cameo from season one.

Similarly, sunbae/hoobae are used to refer to senior people in the same profession (or mentors/teachers) and junior people, respectively. I don't remember if anyone was so addressed in the first episode but it'll probably happen in the future.

Season 1 Episode 7 Jinho you magnificent bastard! The look on everybody's faces as they realized what was happening was priceless.

Always makes me laugh how much everyone seems to eat at the start of every episode. Also love it that there are usually lots of comments on what people are wearing when they come in, rarely see that on US shows for some reason. Sangmin might be one of my favourite game show contestants ever, such a strangely likeable schemer with a bizarrely amazing ability to read people (best example: the Season 1 zombie episode when he immediately correctly guessed who the initial two zombies were just by their body language and a little conversation).

Biggest giveaway on this show: if someone says you need to do/tell them something quickly because you're running out of time, then they're 100% trying to gently caress you.

With his strategically placed name tag it could also be Eucking Pumpkin.

The end was sad, with everyone choosing to enrich themselves but losing Honchul so early would have been even more sad. I wonder how he will hold up the promises he made if it comes down to it later on. Behind all the jolly smiles he's quite determined. Jinho continues being the person who sees the obvious way to win the rest misses.

I hope to see more of the Yoonsun and Dohee (the lawyer and the hacker) power couple, they seem to have the most mutual trust.

Episode 2: If someone was going to be sacrificed to the Genius gods, happy it was her, as she wasn't really bringing much to the show. Glad Hong Chul stuck around. We still really haven't gotten a sense of him game-wise yet. First episode he got out early, this episode he being abandoned.

Thought it was interesting they all bet on him to get garnets, of course, the producers can just as easily adjust later on the line to account for that, so if an item could be purchased, could cost more. Wonder how much Jinho got out of it, he was already at what, 12 (previous 2 + 10 as overall winner)? Could be up to 24 if he went all in on Hong Chul.
