Intro:

Hey and welcome to Live, Lights and Lies the brand new X Factor game that I'm hoping will coming to you soon, providing this thread sparks a few applications! The reason for this is I feel sometimes X Factor games can become very similar, this once infuses a couple of different ideas in order to come out with this format! Hopefully you guys will like it!

What is the format?

Well, Live, Lights and Lies will be like no other forum game in that it has a lot of twists and turns, during each show there will be a lie that will hopefully keep the judges and the audience on their toes and could change the face of the game throughout. Furthermore, at the end of every live show there will be a reveal of how the voting went and how each act placed, like there is on X Factor USA, this will shine a light on how their performing and which act is the one to beat! Each judge will have a sacrifice this allows them to substitute one of their own surviving acts with their eliminated act if they don't agree with the verdict; this can only be used once and only on their own acts. Finally, it's beginning from the live shows, hence the live part!

What about the acts?

Ideally I'd get 4 sign ups, thus there will be 4 categories (Boys, Girls, Overs, Groups) each will mentor either 3 or 4 acts depending on demand and the preference of the judges. These acts can come from any season and don't have to have competed in the live shows, anyone from The Estrelles to Steve Brookstein is welcome!

House keeping:

I will host, I am looking for 4 mentors who can devote the time to this game! At the moment I'm thinking that the show will take place every Thursday, if Thursday' aren't suitable I am willing to move it to another day!

How do I sign up!!!!!!!!

Well, it's pretty simple really! Just send me a PM filling out a short application form! I'm interested in what people can add to this show because I want it to succeed, therefore I won't be operating on a first-come-first-served basis. Just fill out a few questions and send me your responses.

Username & Real Name:
Why do you want to do this show:
What do you add to it:
Previous experience, if any:


Please send your responses to me! I'm hoping to start this show on Thursday, providing people sign up of course! All successful mentors will be notified on Wednesday, if demand is high I may extend this deadline!


So yeah! That's Live, Lights and Lies hopefully you guys like the format and send a cheeky sign-up! Thanks for reading and good luck!

Hahaha I know, I was trying to keep it original so I didn't want the emphasis to be on the twists and such!

Thanks dude! Hopefully I'll get a few interested people!

1 sign up so far.

Because no-one else on this forum signs up for games as quickly as you do, that's a known fact.

Hopefully the momentum will continue and I'll get another two sign ups at least haha!

I genuinely hope this format succeeds.

Pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest so far! Keep signing up guys, if the demand continues I'll close sign ups on Tuesday! Remember though, it's not on a first come basis though so no matter how late you sign up, as long as you signed up before closing you'll have a chance!

You should be, it's an amazing concept. I'm actually a bit jealous that I didn't come up with it first.

Maybe he wants to beat my record of multiple 2nd places?

This game sounds amazing, but I am not able to "devote" my time which I am gutted about. Will certainly be watching a lot!

I've had 7 applications, I'm considering closing sign-ups tonight as I'm happy with the panel I have in mind.

As someone who also works with application processes for these games, I can strongly advise you to do that.

I had WAY too many applications for one of my shows once, and I ended up having to reject so many people that I felt that I couldn't do anything other than create another show to accommodate the majority of them. Having said that, both my shows are doing really well at the moment.

Thanks for your advice!

Providing all mentors are free it'd be awesome to introduce the mentors, their category and the theme for Thursday at around 9pm tonight.
