Even The Cure lightened up the mood on occasion ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=wa2nLEhUcZ0). So, why not us?!!

:cheer: Introducing the Happy La-La Peace & Harmony Everybody Lives Edition of Suicide Amazing Race. :cheer:

The rules are the same, except for the no-suicide thing … nobody dies! No resuscitations, but no :violin: either. Instead, you score a point when your pick survives, and merely score zero when your pick is eliminated. Oh, but you still may use each pick just once!

RULES:

*EDITED 9/27 TO REFLECT BEEFY'S LATEST REVISION*

1. During the week leading to TAR19 episode 2 (October 2, 2011) anyone wanting to participate in this game will submit - on this thread - the name of a TAR team they feel will survive the upcoming week's episode. Sample weekly submission: WEEK 2*: Ethan & Jenna.

(*I’ll give you all one point for an imaginary “week 1” so that our Week 2 and TAR19's Week 2 are in synch.)

2. Weekly submission must be prior to the start of each episode's first showing (i.e. Eastern Time)

3. If your week's pick/team survives the episode, you will score 1 (one) Suicide TAR IV point for that week. (TOTAL PTS POSSIBLE: 6 to 8, depending on how many elimination rounds there are between Week 2 and the final Sunday.)

3a. If your week's pick/team is eliminated, or if you forget to submit a pick or submit “no pick” as your pick, you will score 0 (zero) Suicide TAR IV points for that week.

4. Important: As with past Suicide games, you may use each team only ONCE for the duration of TAR19/this game.

Plan your strategy. You may want to pick a team you perceive as weaker (but not "weakest") each week. Or your strategy may be to play it safe, make sure you progress into the next week. Or you may opt for a blindfold/dartboard scenario.

5. The game will end when TAR19 ends, on the giant bathmat. Your final week pick will be to rank the teams who are to race on the finale Sunday. If four teams are racing in the final Sunday, rank all four. If it’s three, rank all three.

You will rank the teams racing the final Sunday, whether or not you've "used" any of the picks beforehand. (TOTAL POSSIBLE PTS: 3 to 4, depending on how many teams are racing the finale Sunday.)

Since nobody can commit suicide in STARIV, everybody gets to play through this final round.

I expect the final ranking wrinkle to make the final week fairly mysterious ... could see a come-from-behind medal from a sly or lucky person.

6. ABOUT ‘NO PICK’: You may use the pick "no pick" only once during the game. A missed pick (i.e. "forgot to submit a pick") is the same as “no pick”. Each subsequent missed pick will result in -1 points.

We had an enormous pool of players for STARIII – 36! – so of course I’ve got my hopes high for this one. Come on in, the water’s fine (and blood free).

Below: Last season's standings. AKA what you’re aspiring to or running from. :P

5. The game will end when TAR19 ends, on the giant bathmat. Your final week pick will be to rank the teams who will race on the finale Sunday. If four teams are racing in the final Sunday, rank all four. If itís three, rank all three. Scoring for the final week will be a point for each correctly predicted finish.

I expect this wrinkle to make the final week fairly mysterious ... could see a come-from-behind medal from a sly or lucky person.

For the final week does this mean we rank whoever is there even if we have already choosen some of the teams?

Probably. But, :lol: I really need to think this through. I certainly want to keep this edition simple but still challenging ... both without bumbling it like I did with the :shuffle: last edition.

ETA: I've edited the rules to clarify:

1. Yes, you'll rank all the teams racing the finale Sunday, whether or not you've used them beforehand in the game.

2. Since I want the weekly picks to be the thrust of the scoring, I've made weekly picks worth 3 pts each (18-24 points possible), and correct finale rankings worth 2 pts each (6-8 pts possible).

Don't let the length of the "rules" fool you. This edition is very simple ... One pick a week, every week, you score if your pick survives that leg, you can only use a pick once, you don't die so you play all season long, then for finale Sunday you rank the remaining teams (everyone has all remaining teams at their disposal for the finale round).

Your only bumbling, Sir, was your failure to appropriately acknowlege the winners. :drama:

:saint: Winning's true worth is about how it makes one feel inside. :saint:

The thirst for acknowledgement (:plush:) is devil's work.


But, hey, kudos to our defending champions! May they prosper and remain humble.

:rofl: Acknowledgement of one's accomplishments IS the point. Otherwise, just take a nap. Especially if that one win is the only one one has. :shuffle:
