Gemma and Iron Muffin have now reached an unprecedented 3 talismans apiece... I will give everyone until tomorrow to redistribute their talismans if they wish to do so.

Note: Unless they are completely evicted, Bhanny and cutepongki can keep their talismans. They are free to give them to whoever they please if they feel like it.

That's right! A twist!

One of your fellow houseguests has chosen to activate a secret prize.

Which secret prize was activated?

FATE

The rules of fate state that when used, all unused talismans will be confiscated and redistributed via random number generator. Each houseguest will have an equal chance of receiving each talisman, meaning that one person could end up with every talisman if luck were on his or her side.

To use this prize, the houseguest must have a strong trust in the powers of luck... or complete desperation.

Which means that if you currently held a talisman or two or three... you may not have as many. And if you have no talisman... you just might get lucky.

Here we go!

TALISMAN NO. 1 currently belongs to CUTEPONGKI. It now belongs to...

Iron Muffin started with 3 talismans and LOST 2 :(
Sir Bitter started with 1 talisman and GAINED 2
xymandopex started with 2 talismans and ended up with 2

This special prize has now been expended. The "Fate" redistribution may no longer occur in any future round. Considering some of your luck... you should be relieved.

And to those of you that got lucky? Well, every upside comes with a downside.

Just so you all know, Gemma requested an extension until Thursday. At that point in time, I will reveal the results from the HoH competition and Talisman Challenge simultaneously (like usual).

Bear with me, as the statement in the first post suggests, the doubled format is not long for this world.

Until then, I challenge you all to have a strategic discussion with someone you haven't before and see what happens.

Or not. :lol

Welcome to the results of this two-part Talisman competition!

Here was the challenge:

Part 1:


Please check the thread for relevant details. Most importantly, there is absolutely NO DISCUSSION of this challenge until it is completely over. Thanks :)

PART I:

In the game "Scrabble", sometimes a player will play a "phony". This is a fake word that they made up or does not qualify for points. The idea behind this is to create a word that sounds like it could be real and is convincing enough that the other player does not challenge it.

In this competition, you will be doing something similar. Each of you will come up with a fake word for each of the 10 following definitions. The more convincing you are, the more points you will get in Part 2!

Please send me a list 1 to 10 of just the words. I've given you a definition and part of speech. Get creative, but make the words seem... plausible. Do NOT use actual words that mean the definitions. :lol

1. [verb] to confuse things or mix them up in your head
2. [noun] someone who is tall and unhealthily thin.
3. [adjective] having an attitude that's very outgoing and sociable
4. [adjective] stupid or dense
5. [noun] a bad smell
6. [noun] someone who refers to him/herself in the third-person.
7. [noun] a document written with the intention of not using a specific letter of the alphabet
8. [verb] to mutter under one's breath
9. [adjective] full of air bubbles
10. [noun] someone paid to grieve at a funeral


Part 2:


Well, you've basically created your own challenge. I have given ten sentences with blanks. Each blank could be filled with a word with one of the definitions you got before (not necessarily in order...). I have given you 9 choices. Each of you have provided one of the 8 wrong answers, and I mixed in the one word that is correct. Many of the words I chose were bizarre or archaic, so it could be a challenge to find them.

For every correct answer you get 2 points. If someone chooses a word you made up as the correct answer, you will receive a point.

Time is very important, as it will be used as a tiebreaker - a tie is likely.

So, simply choose the ten correct words.


1. Dang, Gary is so _______ ! I mean, isn't it common sense NOT to put dishes in the clothes dryer?

assnut

Answers:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

So, let's see how everyone did!

There were 20 possible points for getting the correct answers, and an additional point each time someone else (or you) chose your own word.

First, let's see how correct or incorrect everyone was.


Aly - 20/20
Sir Bitter - 20/20
GlitterxGold - 16/20
Gemma - 6/20
DoeBoy - 2/20
AIW - 0/20
Iron Muffin - 0/20
xymandopex - 0/20

As you can see, Aly and Sir Bitter are tied for the lead, with GlitterxGold not far behind. There is also a slight chance that another houseguest could win. With so many incorrect answers, anything could still happen.

Let's see how many times one of each player's words were chosen!
Iron Muffin - 12
xymandopex - 12
Aly - 5
GlitterxGold - 5
DoeBoy - 3
Gemma - 3
AIW - 0
Sir Bitter - 0

Which means, both parts combined...

Aly - 25
GlitterxGold - 21
Sir Bitter - 20
Iron Muffin - 12
xymandopex - 12
Gemma - 9
DoeBoy - 5
AIW - 0

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a58/denouement1345/charcoal8.png

In the spoiler box under your name, you have been nominated for eviction by Aly.

HOWEVER, there is a chance that Aly has in fact chosen immunity, in which case no player will be nominated and 2 players will be nominated during voting.

Sir Bitter:

Safe.

DoeBoy:

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a58/denouement1345/charcoal8.png

DoeBoy, Aly has nominated you for eviction. You will not be eligible to vote, and the player with the greatest number of votes will be nominated against you. Bhanny must then eliminate either you or the other player from the Future.

Iron Muffin:

Safe.

GlitterxGold:
