THE FINALS WILL BE BETWEEN

CapitalistPig

The two players can post in thread cases for why they should win, but there should be no out of thread contact between the dead and the living regarding voting for the finals. Votes should be entered by 10PM EST Monday Evening!


OP shamelessly stolen from the wonderful winvirus() with some tweaks to the rules for this run! Make sure to read the OP because if you mess up I don't care about correcting you and you will take the punishment

Welcome to Popularity Contest Two: Screw You! A game for 20 25 players.

In this game, your goal is to be the last person standing. Each game day will consist of roughly 48 hours, and each player can vote to have another player eliminated. Each play may privately submit a single vote, and it may not be changed, and at the end of the game day, the player with the most votes is eliminated. However, if a player receives all but one vote, those votes are nullified, leaving only that personís vote effective. This rule does not apply to the final two or three.

Players may not self vote. Even if all votes are submitted, the day will still run its full course unless all players unanimously agree to end the day prematurely (independently through PM).

Players may not abstain from votes, and any votes abstained from will count for the next person ahead of them alphabetically. Players who fail to vote twice in a row will instead be eliminated.

All votecounts will be revealed at the end of the game day, but you will not know who voted for whom.

For each successful vote on an elimination candidate, a player will receive a points equal to the votes on the elimination. This means that as the game goes on, there will be less points available. These points are private currency that are largely used in tiebreakers. Points are trade-able, so long as both parties agree to the transaction.

In the event of a tie on the vote, the player who leaves the game will be the one with the least points. If there is still a tie for points, the tied players will collaborate to eliminate a player of their choice. If they cannot unanimously agree, all tied players will be eliminated.

At two players remaining, all players who have previously been voted out will be asked to submit an anonymous vote. In the event of a tie, the player with the least points will be eliminated. If there is still a tie, the dead will have a player removed at random and revote. This process will repeat until the game ends.

There is full out-of-thread communication allowed in this game.

No editing of posts. No pre-game alliances. Don't Be A Jerk And Ruin My Game.

You may quote chatlogs and crap. You may not quote moderator communications. You may not use screenshots. Chatlogs are fine because you can fake them, but screenshots take a *little* fun out of it. Also, live players may not communicate with dead players. Come on.

Penalty for rule breaking will typically be immediate elimination.

The final prize for the winner is currently $125 in amazon/paypal/whatever gift cards. No conspiring to split the prize, dorks, that's no fun. I have had some questions from people about donating to the prize pot. Up until the start of play, anyone, playing or not, may PM me a donation request and I will provide my paypal info. I will not be revealing donors under any circumstance, and there is no bonus for doing so. Don't ask people if they donated or not during gameplay, and don't lord it over people if you do. Period.

I will provide all forms here once they are set up.

POINT TRANSFERS

All point transfers must be submitted using the Point Transfer Form. The form has to be filled out by both parties. If for some reason you absolutely cannot respond using the form, I will take PM responses, but I would highly prefer for logistics and time that you use the form. If both parties have not submitted a point request form within 24 hours, the trade is canceled.

Confessionals
Every day will have a different confessional form to easily break them up for reading! I shouldn't have to say this but here I am having to say it. Don't submit confessionals under someone else's username.

Hello! Just popping in to say this game is winvirus-approved. I just don't have it in me to run it again so when Kashuno popped in asking if he could, I was all for it. I will be eagerly watching! PS Kashuno send me that link to the observer doc
