In the past I have hosted a football fantasy style game for Survivor, Amazing Race, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and more among my internet friends. It is hosted on a yahoo group website. I was wondering if there is any interest in a game for this season's Survivor that's coming up. How it works is each week you would enter your picks for a variety of questions such as who you think will win the reward challenge, the immunity challenge, what the reward challenge will be, etc and some random questions that change each week such as who carries the flag to a particular challenge, who is shown reading mail, etc. The weeks database is usually opened within 24 hours after the previous show and closes at midnight Sunday or Monday night. There are usually only as many players as there are castaways (at least in the past) as each player is randomly given a castaway to cheer/jeer for during the season.

We've usually ponied up a donation of $10 each person for prizes in the past for the person with most points at the end of the season, person with the winning castaway, etc. We also play an online version of Survivor Bingo partway through the season and halfway through the season we make our picks for the final 4. There are winners/prizes usually for those games as well.

I've took over hosting these type of games from a friend years ago so have several seasons worth of experience and fun. Questions? Comments? Just fishing to see if there's any interest since the new season of Survivor is a month away.

IN! Not ashamed to say it, I have seen every single Survivor episode since day 1! Sounds like fun EP. Count myself and Gilby #2 in for two of the spots if wanted and needed.

We're in. We could go as a team, or individually.

Super! I've picked up a few other people that have pm'd me! We can have a total of 20 players to really make it fun!

I too have watched every episode since the beginning. The past few seasons have just gotten better and better!
