The odd thing is that he sent a PM to a group of people who haven’t submitted it yet, but he hasn’t even read those who actually submitted it so far. :lol:

Rest assured your entries have been read and tabulated (this is why you did not receive individual solicitations to get your entries in).  You guys are hungry for a new game I can tell.  I will go and respond to everyone individually right now. . . . . .

Folks, now that I already have 7 entries in hand, we will have to play the first month with 59.  I figured that Aretha would not make it to the start of the round, but would also not be picked to  survive it, either.  It may go even lower with two weeks of "dead" time before the start.  But that is not really a problem, 60 is an arbitrary number anyway.  As I stated, by the time we get to round 2, there will likely be a few less, so I may add names each month, or I may not.  The main thing is we are all gardening with the same batch of earthworm food, and the cleverest (or luckiest) players will do the right thing with the group we have.  One thing that I did not specify, but stands to reason, is that if a pick dies before the starting gun, they can add a replacement - AT THAT SPOT.  Please don't shuffle your whole list to accommodate a new name.  

Also, I can list the names vertically in the future if it is preferred by some.  I only did it  paragraph style to save room in the thread.  Carry on!

 

Okay WF - I have your PM and have now found in the above post the sub rule that you refer to - I think you should edit the original rules post to include this.

I believe that within these 17 lists that 50 of the 56 options have been selected.

 

So if any of the 56 die likely that someone will be getting some unwanted points.

Interesting.

 

Given the no immediate re-use rules I'm 'saving some for later'. Which obviously means a slightly riskier than 'the best ten picks' first month lineup.

 

Presumably other (and undoubtedly more experienced) competitors have done something similar which has prevented an average of the 10 most likely to survive appearing here.
