    The rules of the game are simple. I will pose a question for you and provide four responses to this question. All participants PM me their response. You can say whatever you like in this thread. You can lie about your response or tell the truth. There is only one catch: if your response is the most popular response, you are eliminated. In the event of a tie, all people who voted for either option are eliminated, everyone else advances to the next round. The winner(s) is(are) the one(s) who remain the round before everyone is eliminated (so if there are four people, and two vote for one response, two vote for another, these four people win).

    For example, say the question for the first round is "So, is Surgo fat or what?"
    Sample answers are:
    a) Yes
    b) Yeah
    c) No (vote for this if you have no dignity!)
    d) No... I mean yes.

    You want to pick the option that you think the fewest people will pick. You want to post stuff in this thread to convince people to vote for options you didn't vote for. If you can convince them to vote for the same option, that's even better.

    SIGN UPS ARE CLOSED, ROUND 1 BEGINS!


    Round 1:

    JimBob
    choop
    Max
    Basics
    TheBM




    I know the list seems long, but I expect that many of these people simply won't play the whole game even if they aren't eliminated, and thus the list will be significantly shorter by round 3.

    Round 1 question:

    Which Pokemon is strongest?
    a) Mewtwo
    b) Gyarados
    c) Jumpman16 :jump:
    d) Magikarp

    4 responses is really less. People will get eliminated very fast. Around 8 should be good enough imho.

    in! 4 is fine: in a knock-out tournament half the competitors get knocked out in the first round; here it's only a quarter
