Main Match 8 is titled Garnet Thief.

Tagging all players: 11oyd, Clefable, Dot Agumon, Faisal, Ivy, MrJelli, Ransei, Yoshi

Though the title of this Main Match might imply your precious, precious garnets might be stolen, this is not the case. This game was played in Season 4, where several games distributed, in the duration of the game, an absurd number of garnets and the winning and losing positions went to the players who ended the games with the most garnets and the least garnets (no matter how many you came into the round with). We will not be adopting this mechanic. However, we are using one of the games that did, with some adaptations. The name Garnet Thief is a leftover from it.

This game takes place over four rounds each lasting 24 hours. You will choose one of the following roles: Mafia, Cartel, Police, or Beggar in your confessional PM. You may publicly or privately disclose what your role is; you don’t have to tell the truth, obviously. At the end of each round, four points will be distributed to players based on how people chose their roles. You do not have to choose the same role every round.

Here is how distribution of points works:
  • Between the two criminal organizations (Mafia or Cartel), the one with more members choosing it will have four points distributed equally between the members, rounded down. If there are remainders after the distribution, all the remainders are equally distributed between the Beggars.
  • If Mafia and Cartel have an equal number of members choosing it, the four points are distributed equally among the Police, rounded down. Again, all the remainders are equally distributed between the Beggars.
Between Round 2 and Round 3, you may transfer 1 point publicly to another player. You must post in the main thread for the point transfer to be public, and the other player must accept it. You may only give to another player or accept from another player a total of one point (so if you give one point away, your recipient can’t give a point away; if you accept a point from someone else, you can’t give away your point to to another player).

At the end of each round, the distribution of the points will be announced, with point winners being publicly announced by name.

The player or players who have the largest point total at the end of Round 4 win and obtain a Token of Life. A single winner will be given an additional Token of Life to give away while multiple winners will each be given one for themselves only (as usual). A sole winner will obtain four garnets; multiple winners will obtain two garnets; but for every 2 points, you’ll obtain one more garnet win or lose.

The player with the lowest number of points will be the Elimination Candidate. In the case of a tie between players with the lowest number of points, the winner or winners will select among them who will be the Elimination Candidate. The EC will choose a player lacking a Token of Life to join in the Death Match, and the loser of the Death Match will be seventh player eliminated.


Round 1, which lasts 24 hours, will begin on Sunday, February 16 at 4 PM EST. Use the time between now and then to communicate with other players and develop strategies.
 
Round 4, the final round, has been compiled.

11oyd, Clefable and MrJelli have gained a point.


This means the winner is MrJelli, who receives a Token of Life, and may also give a Token of Life to any player of their choosing. They will do this before...

MrJelli must also choose out of all of the Elimination Candidates, being Clefable, Dot Agumon , Faisal, or Ivy. Please submit one of your choosing to your confessional.

This concludes The Garnet Thief. Garnet count will be posted shortly.

Dot Agumon has selected Yoshi as their Death Match Opponent. Please schedule a Death Match as soon as possible.

The Death Match is Black and White II.

In this game, you will compete by using a portion of a limited pool of points. The player with the most victories will win the Death Match. Both players will start with 99 points. The game will consist of 9 rounds. In each round, players will use as many points as they wish out of their 99 points.

When a starting player decides how many points they'll used, It is revealed to the opponent whether it is a 1-digit (announced as Black) or a 2-digit number (announced as White). The opposing player can see that before they decide how many points to use for the round.. The number itself is not revealed.

The player who used more points in each round will gain a victory. The points you used will be subtracted from the total, and it will be shown which interval your total point amount lies in. The intervals are: 99-80, 79-60, 59-40, 39-20, 19-0. It will be shown which interval your remainder of points is in as soon as you send in your points.

The player who wins each round will be the person who starts the following round.

The winner of this Death Match gains the opponent's garnets.

Yoshi has forfeited due to life getting in the way. Black and White II will be played at a later time, and we will fit Yoshi in at a later event or another Genius. We wish him well.

The next Main Match will be posted in about two hours.

Garnet count comes after it is decided what Yoshi will do with his garnets; if no decision is made in 24 hours from the time we accepted his forfeiture, then we will take them out of the game temporarily and award them to the final winner. The next post is reserved for the next Main Match.

Before Racetrack Blues:

Dot Agumon - 25
Faisal - 23
Clefable - 23
MrJelli - 22
Ivy - 20
Ransei - 13
Yoshi - 12 (where these go, to be decided)
11oyd - 11

Main Match 9 is titled Racetrack Blues.

Tagging all players: 11oyd, Clefable, Dot Agumon, Faisal, Ivy, MrJelli, Ransei

Each player starts with $100. Money cannot be given away or traded, and must be used in $1 increments.

Each round out of four rounds, players will privately bet on a three horse race in their confessional PM. Players must bet a minimum of $10 each round, and can only bet on a maximum of two horses each round.

The winner of the horse race will be the horse with the least amount of money bet on it. If two horses tie for the least amount, the horse with the most money bet on it will win the race. If all three horses tie, no horse will win, and all bets will be lost. Players with a bet on the winning horse will receive triple the amount of money they bet.

Players can also add garnets to their bets. Each garnet will count as a $25 increase to the total money bet on that horse. However, money from garnets only counts towards determining the winning horse, and is not returned to the better. Additionally, if a player is out of money, they can exchange 1 garnet for $10.

At the end of each round, the money count of the 4th place player will be made public.

The game will end after 4 rounds. The player(s) with the most money at the end of the game (payout occurs after round 4) will be the winner(s) and receive 3 garnets, while the player(s) with the least money at the end of the game will be the loser(s). Additionally, the player in 4th place in the final money count will receive 7 garnets. If there is a tie for 4th, nobody will receive the garnet boost. A sole winner will, as usual, get an additional Token of Life to give away, but this isn't an option for mutiple winners (who will receive 2 garnets if they win, as opposed to a sole winner's 3).

Each round lasts for 24 hours.

The three horses are:
  1. Future Gluestick
  2. Zero Chance
  3. No Legs


Round 1, which lasts 24 hours, will begin on Tuesday, February 25 at 4 PM EST. Use the time between now and then to communicate with other players and develop strategies.

Additionally, the player in 4th place in the final money count will receive 7 garnets. If there is a tie for 4th, nobody will receive the garnet boost. Sole winners receive a Token of Life to give away in addition to their own; joint winners, as usual, don't have any more to give.

Additional rulings:
  1. Garnets can only be used in addition to money bet. Garnets alone cannot be bet.
  2. At the end of the main match, the number of garnets spent and who spent the garnets will be announced (before the garnets are updated).
  3. At the end of each of the rounds, the standings of the horses will be revealed. The players and who spent money on them are not, nor are players' money totals, with the exception of the player in fourth place in terms of money (that is revealed each round, as well as how much money they have). It will be revealed alongside final payouts at the end how many garnets each player spent.

Hullo its me with a couple rule clarifications:
- If you have less than $10, you will not be forced to purchase extra money with garnets, and can instead spend the amount of money you have remaining for that round (even if this is $0)
- No, there is not 4 seperate races. The money is cumulative across the 4 rounds towards the 1 race
 
Unfortunaly we had a pretty poor showing in terms of actually submitting something :/
All players have 24 hours to send submissions for round 2 if they havent already
If after the 24 hours, or in future rounds, there is no submission from a player, half of their remaining cash will be forcibly bet on a random horse , as their submission. The candidate(s) in question will be informed of what horse their randomized bet was placed on

All bets are in for Round 2, and Round 2 has ended.

However, full disclosure: I am the only available cohost until 7 PM EST, and it is in everyone's best interest that I stay away from compiling numerical submissions due to the Zombie Game incident. Although 7 PM EST is when compilation is for sure going to happen, I will attempt to find a trustworthy global to help compile before that time period.

We thank you for understanding.

Round 2 has ended.

Very little has changed in the racetrack. Future Gluestick seems to still be the top pick, followed by No legs, and then Zero Chance.

The money count of the person in 4th is currently $55.

Will Future Gluestick manage to win before the inevitable day comes? Will No Legs spontaneously sprout wings and fly to first? Will Zero Chance defy all odds and end up as the victor?

Let's get back to betting! Round 3 has begun.

We apologize for the compilation delay, but we hope you understand the issues with math at store involving a host (ie me).

last chance to get your bets in! round 4 has begun
Round 4 has ended and all submissions are in. However, compilation will happen tonight. As stated in our channel, future games will be compiled immediately from the time the rounds end (ie complicated math will likely not be a factor in them).

Wow! What an exciting race!

The horse with the least money won the race, so Zero Chance defied the curse of its name and won the race. No Legs, despite its obvious hindrance, came in a respectable second, and all we'll say is that Future Gluestick has lived up to its name and finished in third.

Final standings of the Main Match as follows:

MrJelli has won the Main Match and receives a Token of Life in addition to three garnets. He will have an extra one to give away, but it cannot be given to Faisal, who is the Elimination Candidate. After MrJelli gives away his Token of Life, Faisal will choose someone to join him in the Death Match, which will be posted when both Death Match players are revealed.

The player in fourth place in terms of money was Clefable, who gets the seven garnets.

Garnets Spent
MrJelli spent 21 garnets
Dot Agumon spent 8 garnets
11oyd spent 8 garnets
Ivy spent 8 garnets
Ransei spent 0 garnets
Clefable spent 8 garnets
Faisal spent 4 garnets.

Post-Main Match Garnet Count
Clefable - 22
Faisal - 19
Dot Agumon - 17
MrJelli - 16
Ransei - 13
Ivy - 12
11oyd - 3
