    Welcome to Unpopular or Die! Prize Edition. The rules are simple. Each round I will list four fabulous prizes. Contestants private message me with one prize to be added to their Gift Basket. But watch out, everyone who picks the most popular options will be eliminated and lose everything. Prizes start small but get more valuable in later rounds, however in no round are the prizes equal. Will you pick your prizes out of honest greed, or attempt for unpopular options to stay in the game?

    This is your last warning to stop being so popular.

    Crux was the most unpopular, being the only player to post twice. Everyone should start working together to knock this ringer out of the competition.

    This competition is brought to you by the unpopular letters G and X.

    Round 1

    Let's start this off with some cheap and simple prizes. There's nothing here worth getting kicked out of the competition over, and yet more players will probably be eliminated in this round than any other.

    Prize #1 Gardettos


    [​IMG]


    This General Mills product dates back to 1931 and was once referred to be the New Yorker as "the gentleman's snack food". With its delicious blend of pretzels, special seasoning, and rye chips (or Dog Biscuits in youth vernacular), a bag of Gardettos is sure to bring gravitas to any frat party or wine tasting.

    Prize #2 Crunch Bar

    [​IMG]

    When Hans Crunch first approached Nestle with the idea to mix rice inside of their chocolate, he was laughed out the door. But when America entered the Second World War, Nestle was ordered to produce thousands of candy bars for military rations and the new Crunch Bar was able to fit into two food groups. You too can honor American heroes by winning the only Candy Bar with red white and blue packaging.

    Prize #3 Whoopee Cushion

    [​IMG]

    When making your perfect Gift Basket, the rule is to keep it classy. So what is classier than Ancient Rome? That's right, the whoopee cushion was first invented by Roman Emperor Elagabalus. This young emperor was also known for prostituting himself and being assassinated at the age of 18. When you bring this fine prize home to your children, make sure to educate them on its regal origins.

    Prize #4 Sushi

    [​IMG]

    Wait, typo...

    Prize #4 Sushi Stickers

    [​IMG]

    Stickers are great because they have so many applications. You can decorate your house with them. You can stick them on your friends when they aren't paying attention. You can vandalize public property. You can use them as fake currency in a game of Three Dragon Ante. With Sushi Stickers, you can tactically place them in spots where you are likely to see them when hungry, thus telling yourself that you want to go buy actual sushi (I mean shit Sushi won't keep if I have to ship it to you).


    All contestants must PM me with their choices. Deadline is in 48 hours. All who choose the most popular result are eliminated, as are any who fail to PM me their choice.

    Yo dawgs a coin told me to take the Gardettos.

    I highly suggest everyone take something else or you'll have a smaller chance of getting to the better prizes later on.

    voting for Gardettos, highly suggest that everyone who votes for Gardettos says so, just so that we can make sure that we don't go over 15 people, since that would be very very bad for all of us.

    Yo kingofkongs and Cereza why the fuck would you vote Gardettos after I literally just said I was voting for it.

    There are no votes for woopie cushion or Crunch Bar yet and you two vote something with votes on it already?

    I just chose completely randomly and ignored what everyone posted. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

    If this were any old Unpopular/Die contest I'd agree with you.

    But when Fritos and Crunch Bars are on the line I really don't care how "old" a strategy is.

    Yeah, they really better try harder this round.

    EDIT: "Largest subset if more than half" is to plurality what supermajority is to majority, but with an arbitrary value rather than a variable. Even in politics where the distinction is supposed to matter plurality is usually called "relative majority" these days.
