Hey everyone, I ran the sweepstake last year and enjoyed it far to much, so if nobody minds, I'll do the same this year!

All you need to do is pick your number and then hope for the best! Two people can be assigned for each houseguest. Players score points for victories in competitions, surviving evictions, or for gaining prizes in the game. We keep this thread at episode pace, so please try to stick to that whenever possible. (If you do have something spoilery to say, please put it in tags!)

Due the uncertain nature of the mentor twist, I decided that to include them in this anyway. It remains unclear whether the mentors will actually be able to play in competitions, or even earn points, so going for one of them might be a gamble. Because of that, I'm going to slightly tweak the sign-up rules, and you now have the option to sign-up for a normal player or for a mentor, while stocks last!

As ever, the player that you are given won't be revealed until launch night. The housemate your assigned corresponds to the order they are called to enter the house. In the event that players enter together (which may be the case with the mentors) then it's decided by who is seen in a solo diary room first.

Anyway, here is the sign up sheet!

New player:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5. Kyle123
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.

Mentor:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Good job Kyle.

11 please

I was wondering if we could have some kind of prediction game too; maybe after we see how the mentor twist will work.

I don't think the mentors play to win the prize technically so maybe we could just ignore them but depending on which newbie we pick then maybe that can be our corresponding mentor choice too?

Prediction game could be fun, though I'm not entirely sure how it would work, especially considering every year, pretty much everyone who posts here ends goes by live feed pace.

If anyone has any ideas on how to work it, I'd happily run it though.

I was thinking similarly, and I think I've found a better way to work this now!

Basically, if you want to take a chance on a mentor, feel free to do so. If then on launch night it becomes clear that the mentor's will never actually play, then I'll reassign you a newbie. (If all the newbies already have two people, I'll expand it to three) If the mentors do compete, then you can stay with them.

Something like this you mean: (weekly pase)

Predict the:

HOH winner: 1 HG (20 points)
Nominees: 2 HGs (5 points per nominee)
Veto players: 6 HGs (1 points per HG)
Veto winner: 1 HG (15 points)
Veto used: Yes/No (5 points)
Food comp/Luxury comp winners: 4 HGs (1 point per HG)
Who will be evicted: 1 HG (10 points)

Yep; we could also try to predict what the mentors do too once we know the situation.
I've always thought it's a bit daft to start prediction games before the launch, as it's virtually random, especially for the poor bastard who gets the boot!

How many days do they move in before we get to the first live eviction? Usually they do the HOH on the first night so I guess by the time the feeds come on we know the nominees and stuff right?

I've been pondering the idea of a prediction game, but those who had bought the live feed would be at a big advantage over those who hadn't. Can't see a way around this.
Anyone?
