Scoring Points: With the exception of the weekly Trivia Questions Bonus, registered players accrue points when Survivor cast members on a registrants' team are awarded points based on their actions, and outcome of events (e.g., winning immunity) during an episode. Survivor: Palau episode #2 scheduled for broadcast on 2/24/05 will be the first episode used to accrue points to registered players. Team point totals will be updated by 1:00 PM Eastern Time following the night of each new Survivor: Palau broadcast. All decisions regarding scoring in the Survivor: Palau Fantasy League will be made by an "Official Scorer", a CBS.com representative whose decisions are final and binding on matters relating to the awarding of points in this game. With the exception of the weekly Trivia Questions Bonus, points in each episode will be awarded ONLY for qualifying activities occurring during new, previously unseen footage. No points will be awarded for events that occur during flashbacks of any sort.
