Yeah, that's it puddin & Texan. I've been doing Extreme Pool for 3 or 4 yrs. Only one year did I do really good with it, but there was a boot list that year which I went by. Since then, it's more work!
But still fun.
This season, I waited until Ep 5 to lock in my picks. Total pts: a big honkin 15. But I could still end up doing good, depending on my picks of course!
Thanks to Lancers...here's how to play it:
Extreme Pool details: At the point that you feel that you have reasonable confidence in your ability to predict the remaining Survivors vote-off order, you may pick the order in which the remaining Survivors are voted off and lock your votes in. Once the next weekly deadline passes, your votes are locked in and cannot be changed for the remainder of the season. You do not start to accumulate score until your votes are officially locked in and a weekly deadline passes. After each episode, the top name on your list is removed (or multiple names are removed in the event multiple Survivors leave the game), and you are given one point for each Survivor on your list that remains in the game. For example, suppose at the beginning of an episode your list contains the names in this order: Ed, Trixie, Alice and Ralph. One Survivor is voted off (Alice). Since one Survivor was voted off, one name is removed from the top of your list (Ed). Your list now contains Trixie, Alice and Ralph. The remaining Survivors are now Ed, Trixie and Ralph. You score one point for Trixie and one point for Ralph since they are still in the game AND on your list. You do not score points for Alice even though she is on your list because she left the game. You do not score points for Ed even though he is still in the game because he is no longer on your list. If two Survivors had been voted off, your list would have been shortened by two (Ed and Trixie) and the scoring would continue as before.
