"Walking Schwindel, smart move."


Hi everybody. As I'm sure you know, bags has suggested his own eviction based on scheduling reasons. I love the guy, but far be it from me to not take an easy out when it is presented. I also think it would not be in the spirit of tough and fun competition going forward - there's definitely such thing as carrying a shield in a game like this, but in those scenarios the shield is still playing...I don't think it fair for somebody who can't actively play to remain in the game longer than people who are available and trying to compete.

As such I will NOT be using the Power of Veto as I see no reason in making this any more complicated than it needs to be. I insist, however, that this vote be unanimous - if you try to pull some voting shenanigans against this, you will immediately become my target. In the main Discord channel I told my tale of Ultimate Revenge upon Stardew Valley's resident programmer Sebastian - that will look like NOTHING compared to what I will do to you if I find out that you voted for sniper. You will only WISH that I used Dark Magic to turn your children into birds while you rotted in your mom's basement.

Thanks and Yoba Bless.

Poque has chosen NOT to use the power of veto, so the nominations remain the same.

Everyone except Somber and the two nominated houseguests now must vote for either sniper or bagshotrow in their confessional using the ##vote syntax before 7PM EST on Sunday. Once your vote is in, you cannot change it. Votes are done by submitting some sort of picture with the person you are voting for clearly indicated. See the evictions from ABB2 for inspiration.

The eviction will be held on Sunday at 7:30PM EST followed immediately by the HOH challenge at 8PM EST to determine the new HOH. All remaining houseguests except Somber, as outgoing HOH, will be participating in the challenge.

The HOH challenge will be a Flash Game challenge. The game works on Chrome, Firefox, and Edge.

The veto meeting is adjourned.

Welcome back houseguests. We'll be getting to our first eviction in just a little while.



Let's see how things are going in the house and check in with how this first week went.

Somber, you won the first HOH of the season, and in a popularity based vote. How are you feeling about your place in the house?

sniper, conversely, you were nominated alongside someone who has said they aren't able to play the game. Do you feel safe or are you worried about tonight?

bagshotrow, you unfortunately due to scheduling aren't really able to play and have asked to be voted out. Do you think your fellow houseguests have listened to your wishes?

Cat and Meinberg, you're both former winners of this game. How are you feeling coming into this game? Do you think that puts you more at an advantage or a disadvantage?

Teland, Hats, Mr. Steak, GGN, none of you have played an FRG before. How has the first week been? What have you learned so far?

AA, Kashuno, Poque, Sal and Mikujin you all have played in FRGs before, although most of you not in ABB. How does it compare? What do you think you'll be best at going forward and what are you most worried about?

Thanks, Julie! Juby? I'm not fully informed on the distinction. It's been a lot of fun! I'm sure there's going to be a lot more scheming in future weeks--I haven't seen much of anything in the way of that--but all of the casual chats have been really enjoyable. I came here to make friends, and I'm doing well on that front!

I've played in Survivor which is a whoooole different animal. It's kinda weird to start a game and feel like it's already in the individual portion of the game! I think I'll be alright at challenges but the way the game is structured, that's not really an actual strategy - my worry is that I don't really know how to make this game work. We'll see!

its been super fun! the first comp wasnt really a... "competition" but it was really hype to see the pool get narrowed down. and on the other end of things, the POV comp was really really fun to compete in, especially when there weren't any real stakes for me lol. mainly what i've learned is how the game operates, cuz i was extremely unsure of that going in.

Julsiina,

I haven't played in a FRG in a long time and when I did I didn't really get a chance to be super active. I've been playing a lot of Mafia over the last like 2 years. I feel like I've over all been quiet, but I feel like things are going well so far.

I do feel like it's been a slow start, and I've been a bit grateful for it as I've personally been busy this week, but pure shop talk...

I'm hoping to keep it a bit breezier in the coming weeks and try and make some connections.

Comparatively, other FRGs I've experienced incentivize making alliances immediately, but also with the expectation of being betrayed often.

However, there is more of a natural bonding with people going on and that's wholesome and good.

I'm hopeful that everything will stay amicable and above board. Seems like it rewards good faith interactions over scheming.

*hugs house crew*

Well coolie I personally think that it's a bit of both! -- like, someone could look at me and see that I was loyal and then believe I'm loyal here, or someone could look at me like SHE WON SHE OBVIOUSLY IS THE BEST LIAR which is, uh, not really a good kind of reputation to have

It's been pretty fun getting know everyone! So far I've learned that if you want to form bonds in this "house" you've got to do the work and communicate. It's been a tough lesson.

Farewell Bags! I hope that everything works well for you!

Also, I was in the midst of managing dinner so I was late in coming up with my responses, which I will place here now for the sake of posterity.

I believe that the first HoH laid it clear for all to see, both of us are seen as threats purely for the sake of our previous victories. Look upon my previous plays in these sort of games and I can assure you, I am threat to no one. I am, in the vulgar argot, very bad at games. I hope that with the unfolding of time, this will become more apparent and people will be less intimidated by reputation alone and come to understand that I am merely one amongst the many.

Purely the calm before the storm, my friend. In time, there will be a great motion and a terrifying voice.

Your screenshot MUST include the current time or it will not count.

Do not post your score anywhere else.

Any submissions after 8:30PM will not count.

Only one submission is allowed, so make sure it's your best score. The highest score becomes the new Head of Household.

Make sure you read the instructions on submitting a score carefully. Game will be posted in 5 minutes.
