The nominees are Sniper and The Lord of Hats. Please send your vote for one of them by 7PM EST on Sunday.

Eviction will be at 7:30 and then HOH challenge at 8PM on Sunday.

It will be a Flash challenge and works on Chrome and Edge, maybe on Firefox. I expect this one to take a little longer than the others, but still should be under an hour.

Don't worry, it's not the big one....yet. You'll know when that's coming :getin:

As I know the results of this, my farewell post to you all.

Teland, we never shared a cabal, but I enjoyed the times we shared a HOH room. Shout out to a fellow neophyte for going the distance.

Somber, we got off on kind of the wrong foot which unfortunately never improved, but I've enjoyed having a chance to chat more. I think it's pretty clear I considered you a threat throughout, which I hope you take as the compliment it is.

Hats, White Dragon stuff was a blast. I remain surprised how few people questioned it, I guess a testament to the universal desire for fun.

Sal, I wouldn't have foretold you'd be one of my strongest allies at the start, but chance brought us together and I enjoyed it. Hope to keep seeing you around discord.

Poque, whew. Won't lie that it stung quite a bit, but at the end of the day if I can be part of the most dramatic betray in the game that's a victory in it's own way. Maybe. Anyway I don't regret it, and as stated I will allow you to feel better about your total and abject betrayal after an appropriately lengthed period of penance.



If the next challenge is Temple Runner imma be mad though

On Day 1 when you reached out to me I was like "Goddamn this dude is going loving HARD already." I really enjoyed getting to know you. I appreciated your GGN vote so much, I don't think you realize how much that endeared you to me. You played the game the way I did (which is what why I think our ultimate downfall happened the way it did). Thank you for being a good friend and ally. Next cycle is going to be super lonely without you.

The game was rigged from the start
Pure snow is falling
I will see you at jury

Welcome to tonight's Head of Household challenge. So few participants left!

Let's get started!

Instructions

At 8:05PM I will post a link to a flash game.

The first person to post IN THE THREAD a screenshot of the completed game, with a timestamp, will be the new Head of Household.

There will be a congratulations screen, that is what I'm looking for.

Buckle in, this one might take a while.

Of note, I had trouble getting this to work in Firefox, but Chrome and Edge were both fine.

Poque and SalTheBard, you have been nominated for eviction. Teland, if you'd like to say a few words explaining your nominations you may do so now.

Poque and SalTheBard, you still have a chance to save yourselves. You, along with all the other houseguests, will be competing in the Power of Veto challenge tonight.

I will see all of you at 8PM EST. It is a Puzzle challenge, and you'll need some sort of image editing software.

Good luck!

Sal - I really appreciate the game you've played, and would be happy to see you get to the end of this. When it comes down to it, I don't have the history with you that I have with the others, and I'm not sure where we stand.

Poque - Have you not been on the block at all this game? What the heck?! Not fair.

Welcome everyone, it's time for the Power of Veto competition. This is the second last veto competition of the season and some might say the last true veto before things get all crazy.

Let's get started!

This competition is called....Trees and Tents

Instructions

At 8:10PM you'll be given a grid with trees on it. You have to place tents next to them based on the following rules:

Each tree has a tent that is either horizontally or vertically (but not diagonally) next to it. There is one tent for every tree.

Trees can be next to each other and trees can be next to more than one tent but Tents can't be next to any other tent, even diagonally. No two tents are adjacent.

The number of tents in each row and column matches the numbers around the edge of the grid

Example

You could be given this:


And you would need to produce this:


Study these examples carefully. Note how trees can be next to more than one tent, but tents can't be adjacent at all in the surrounding 8 spaces.

HINT: Cross off spaces that couldn't possibly have a tent, and then fill out the tents. Also rather than trying to draw tents, I'd recommend just using two different colours and filling in the grid, a tent colour and a background colour.

Submit your solutions in your confessional. I will tell you if you are incorrect, but no guarantee on speed. The first person to submit the correctly completed puzzle wins the Power of Veto.

You do not, that's just something for the example to make it easier to understand. The tents just need to be in the correct spot on the grid.

The nominees are The Lord of Hats and SalTheBard.

Please send your votes for one of them by 7PM EST tomorrow. Eviction is at 7:30PM and the next HOH challenge will be at 8PM EST.

It is a Puzzle challenge, and you'll need access to a computer, but not image editing anything.

There will be an announcement about the endgame schedule sometime tomorrow afternoon as we will be picking up the pace starting then.

:siren: SCHEDULE CHANGE ANNOUNCEMENT :siren:

As we approach endgame, there are going to be some changes to the schedule. The remainder of the game is going to take place over the next week according to the following schedule.

Wednesday: Eviction and Final 4 HOH
Thursday: Veto competition and one hour later eviction.
Friday-Sunday: Part 1 of Final HOH, the posting endurance competition.
Monday: Part 2 of Final HOH
Tuesday : Part 3 of Final HOH and immediate eviction.
Thursday: Finale, hopefully starting closer to 6PM EST rather than 8PM

The biggest changes are the evictions. For the F4 eviction if anyone other than the HOH wins the veto, they are the only one casting a vote. If you win the veto and aren't already nominated and aren't the HOH, you can't use it. So have a plan beforehand what you will do if you win the veto and are forced to choose between the other two who aren't HOH. Then the person who wins the final HOH decides who their F2 partner will be immediately, so the last member of our jury has time to deliberate before the finale.

The other change is the endurance competition. For those who aren't familiar, this is a posting challenge where you will need to post on the forums continuously until you are either disqualified or give up. This can last a few minutes or it could theoretically last forever, but they've maxed out at about 8 hours in the past. We'll schedule this based on the best schedule for the final 3 players, but it's likely to start sometime Saturday or Sunday morning. Please let me know your schedules now, and I'll announce the timing of it by Friday.

The overall Final HOH happens in three parts. In part 1, all three remaining houseguests participate, and the winner moves on to part 3. In part 2, the remaining two houseguests participate and the winner of that moves to part 3. Then in part 3 the winners of part 1 and 2 face off to see who will be the final HOH.

Hello horse....houseguests.

We're really getting close to the end here. Tonight we start the last regular cycle of the game. The last true HOH, the last time there will be nominees, and the last veto will all happen this week.

However, one of you won't be a part of that and instead will join Cat, Kashuno, Mr. Steak, and Sniper in the jury house.

It's time to see who it is.
