    Lluvy: As your choices become more limited, it's important to make sure that you'll be able to finish strong. Let's start Day 3!

    Required Actions

    You now each have nine fish remaining. The chart below indicates which of your fish are still available to use:

    Primary Ghostface 1 2 2 3 3 4 5 5 5
    Primary Odafin 1 2 3 3 3 4 4 5 5
    Primary Margaery 1 1 2 2 3 4 4 5 5
    Primary Tink 1 1 2 3 3 3 4 5 5
    Primary Tyrion 1 2 3 3 4 4 4 5 5
    Secondary Bon Qui Qui 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 5
    Secondary Jack 2 2 3 3 4 4 4 5 5
    Secondary Lacie 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 4 4
    Secondary Jungmoon 1 1 2 2 3 3 3 4 5
    Secondary Sookie 1 2 2 3 4 4 4 5 5
    Tertiary Angela 1 2 2 3 4 4 5 5 5
    Tertiary O-Ren 1 1 2 3 3 4 5 5 5
    Tertiary Elle 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 5 5

    Quaternary Aldous 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 4 5
    Quaternary Lana 1 1 2 2 3 4 4 5 5
    Quaternary Jenna 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 5 5
    Quaternary Steve 1 1 1 2 2 2 3 3 3
    Quaternary Jackie-O 1 1 1 4 4 4 5 5 5
    Quinary Alex 1 1 2 2 2 3 4 5 5
    Quinary Tim 1 1 2 3 3 4 5 5 5
    Quinary Jodi 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5
    Quinary Clark 1 1 2 3 3 4 4 5 5
    Quinary Niska 1 1 1 2 3 3 4 5 5
    Senary Barbara 2 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5
    Senary Peter 2 2 2 3 3 3 5 5 5
    Senary Plavalaguna 1 1 1 2 3 4 4 5 5
    Senary Do-Sik 1 1 2 2 3 3 3 5 5
    Senary Rebecca 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5

    You will use up these fish through the remaining three days, but the order is up to you. You must submit three of these fish per day. For example, you could submit: [4, 4, 4] or [1, 2, 5] or [3, 3, 5]. Any possible combination. Bear in mind that once played, your fish will not be available for future days, so you have to be strategic about when to play your more powerful fish and when to play your weaker fish.

    If you fail to submit a valid selection of three fish within 24 hours, your smallest three fish will be selected automatically.

    Optional Actions

    Additionally, you have some options available to you that you can decide whether or not to make use of.

    • If you currently own a Poison Pill, you may play it on with a fish of your choice. For more information about the Poison Pill, see the Fish Behavior section.
    • At the current time, you may transfer items to other members of your Pond or to Lluvy.
    • At the current time, if you have scales, you may transfer scales to other members of your Pond or to Lluvy.
    • If you have scales, you may exchange them at the Bank for scales of a different type.


    Fish Behavior

    Once the day is over, the players' selected fish will be released into their Pond. The fish will then begin eating according to a very specific and predictable set of rules:

    • Each fish can only eat fish of their prey color. For example, if red fish are the predator of orange fish, red fish can only eat orange fish.
    • The smallest fish will always move first. If a fish has no valid moves to make, fish of the next highest size will move, and so on. Based on this rule, this means that one fish could move several times before a much larger fish has a chance to move.
    • Among identically sized fish of the same color, a fish with a Poison Pill moves last.
    • A fish can only eat a fish that is a smaller size. It cannot eat a fish that is the same size or larger than itself.
    • If a fish has multiple possible options to eat, it will always eat the largest possible fish.
    • If a fish can choose between multiple same-sized options, but one of the possible targets has a Poison Pill, the fish will avoid eating the poisoned fish for as long as possible.
    • When a fish consumes another fish, it will grow immediately into the size that is the sum of its previous size and the size of the fish that it ate. For example, if a size 5 fish eats a size 3 fish, it will grow into a size 8 fish.
    • Any fish who eats a fish with a Poison Pill will become the new holder of the Poison Pill.
    • Once all valid moves have taken place, any fish holding a Poison Pill will die before it can be scored.


    After all valid moves are taken place, the Pond will be declared to be in equilibrium once no more moves are possible. After equilibrium is reached, the Pond will be scored. This signals the end of each day. I will publicly reveal the moves that occurred in the Pond, and announce who has received scales. Scales are distributed according to these rules:

    • For each surviving fish of your color, you will receive one scale.
    • The largest fish in the Pond will earn a bonus of five scales for its owner.
    • In the event that multiple fish are tied for the largest, the five-scale bonus will be distributed as evenly as possible among those owners; any remainder will be taken by Lluvy. For example, if two fish have tied for the largest, each owner would receive two scales, and Lluvy would receive the fifth scale.
    • If six or more fish are tied for the largest, Lluvy will receive all five of the bonus scales.


    Remember, your goal in this game is to obtain as many scales as possible. Make whatever deals you need to make in order to obtain them in both the short term and long term. Good luck!

    Lluvy: Let's start Day 4!

    Senary Rebecca 3 3 4 4 5 5

    You will use up these fish through the remaining two days, but the order is up to you. Remember, whichever three fish you don't play today will be automatically played tomorrow instead. You must submit three of these fish per day. For example, you could submit: [4, 4, 4] or [1, 2, 5] or [3, 3, 5]. Any possible combination. Bear in mind that once played, your fish will not be available for future days, so you have to be strategic about when to play your more powerful fish and when to play your weaker fish.

    If you fail to submit a valid selection of three fish within 24 hours, your smallest three fish will be selected automatically.

    Optional Actions

    Additionally, you have some options available to you that you can decide whether or not to make use of.

    • If you currently own a Poison Pill, you may play it on with a fish of your choice. For more information about the Poison Pill, see the Fish Behavior section.
    • At the current time, you may transfer items to other members of your Pond or to Lluvy.
    • At the current time, if you have scales, you may transfer scales to other members of your Pond or to Lluvy.
    • If you have scales, you may exchange them at the Bank for scales of a different type.


    Fish Behavior

    Once the day is over, the players' selected fish will be released into their Pond. The fish will then begin eating according to a very specific and predictable set of rules:

    • Each fish can only eat fish of their prey color. For example, if red fish are the predator of orange fish, red fish can only eat orange fish.
    • The smallest fish will always move first. If a fish has no valid moves to make, fish of the next highest size will move, and so on. Based on this rule, this means that one fish could move several times before a much larger fish has a chance to move.
    • Among identically sized fish of the same color, a fish with a Poison Pill moves last.
    • A fish can only eat a fish that is a smaller size. It cannot eat a fish that is the same size or larger than itself.
    • If a fish has multiple possible options to eat, it will always eat the largest possible fish.
    • If a fish can choose between multiple same-sized options, but one of the possible targets has a Poison Pill, the fish will avoid eating the poisoned fish for as long as possible.
    • When a fish consumes another fish, it will grow immediately into the size that is the sum of its previous size and the size of the fish that it ate. For example, if a size 5 fish eats a size 3 fish, it will grow into a size 8 fish.
    • Any fish who eats a fish with a Poison Pill will become the new holder of the Poison Pill.
    • Once all valid moves have taken place, any fish holding a Poison Pill will die before it can be scored.


    After all valid moves are taken place, the Pond will be declared to be in equilibrium once no more moves are possible. After equilibrium is reached, the Pond will be scored. This signals the end of each day. I will publicly reveal the moves that occurred in the Pond, and announce who has received scales. Scales are distributed according to these rules:

    • For each surviving fish of your color, you will receive one scale.
    • The largest fish in the Pond will earn a bonus of five scales for its owner.
    • In the event that multiple fish are tied for the largest, the five-scale bonus will be distributed as evenly as possible among those owners; any remainder will be taken by Lluvy. For example, if two fish have tied for the largest, each owner would receive two scales, and Lluvy would receive the fifth scale.
    • If six or more fish are tied for the largest, Lluvy will receive all five of the bonus scales.


    Remember, your goal in this game is to obtain as many scales as possible. Make whatever deals you need to make in order to obtain them in both the short term and long term. Good luck!

    Your two largest fish tied, so they each received 2 scales. The remainder was given to Lluvy.

    Ghostface: It's almost time for some of you to get the axe!
    Seems Lluvy hasn't informed you about the final twist -- she's too cheap to pay for severance packages, so she's allowed me to murder the losers.
    This isn't a comedy, it's a horror film. People live, people die and you'd better start running.

    For all of you who managed to score Copper Scales, great work! If you weren't able to do so, you are running out of time to get what you need to survive.

    Lluvy: Let's start Day 5! While you don't have any decision to make on which fish to use, this is your last chance to perform any transfers before the Performance Review takes place.

    Required Actions

    You now each have three fish remaining. The chart below indicates which of your fish are still available to use:

    Primary Ghostface 1 2 5
    Primary Odafin 3 3 5
    Primary Margaery 3 4 5
    Primary Tink 2 3 5
    Primary Tyrion 3 3 4
    Secondary Bon Qui Qui 3 3 4
    Secondary Jack 4 4 5
    Secondary Lacie 1 1 2
    Secondary Jungmoon 2 3 5
    Secondary Sookie 3 4 4
    Tertiary Angela 2 4 5
    Tertiary O-Ren 2 4 5
    Tertiary Elle 1 4 5
    Tertiary Michaela 2 3 5
    Tertiary Hurley 1 4 5
    Quaternary Aldous 3 4 4
    Quaternary Lana 1 2 5
    Quaternary Jenna 3 3 4
    Quaternary Steve 2 2 2
    Quaternary Jackie-O 4 4 5
    Quinary Alex 4 5 5
    Quinary Tim 4 5 5
    Quinary Jodi 2 2 3
    Quinary Clark 4 5 5
    Quinary Niska 3 4 5
    Senary Barbara 4 5 5
    Senary Peter 5 5 5
    Senary Plavalaguna 1 1 2
    Senary Do-Sik 3 3 5
    Senary Rebecca 3 5 5

    In this case, you will automatically play the three fish that you have left over. There's no decision left for you to make here, although you can still use items like the Poison Pill.

    Optional Actions

    Additionally, you have some options available to you that you can decide whether or not to make use of.

    • If you currently own a Poison Pill, you may play it on with a fish of your choice. For more information about the Poison Pill, see the Fish Behavior section.
    • At the current time, you may transfer items to other members of your Pond or to Lluvy.
    • At the current time, if you have scales, you may transfer scales to other members of your Pond or to Lluvy.
    • If you have scales, you may exchange them at the Bank for scales of a different type.


    Fish Behavior

    Once the day is over, the players' selected fish will be released into their Pond. The fish will then begin eating according to a very specific and predictable set of rules:

    • Each fish can only eat fish of their prey color. For example, if red fish are the predator of orange fish, red fish can only eat orange fish.
    • The smallest fish will always move first. If a fish has no valid moves to make, fish of the next highest size will move, and so on. Based on this rule, this means that one fish could move several times before a much larger fish has a chance to move.
    • Among identically sized fish of the same color, a fish with a Poison Pill moves last.
    • A fish can only eat a fish that is a smaller size. It cannot eat a fish that is the same size or larger than itself.
    • If a fish has multiple possible options to eat, it will always eat the largest possible fish.
    • If a fish can choose between multiple same-sized options, but one of the possible targets has a Poison Pill, the fish will avoid eating the poisoned fish for as long as possible.
    • When a fish consumes another fish, it will grow immediately into the size that is the sum of its previous size and the size of the fish that it ate. For example, if a size 5 fish eats a size 3 fish, it will grow into a size 8 fish.
    • Any fish who eats a fish with a Poison Pill will become the new holder of the Poison Pill.
    • Once all valid moves have taken place, any fish holding a Poison Pill will die before it can be scored.


    After all valid moves are taken place, the Pond will be declared to be in equilibrium once no more moves are possible. After equilibrium is reached, the Pond will be scored. This signals the end of each day. I will publicly reveal the moves that occurred in the Pond, and announce who has received scales. Scales are distributed according to these rules:

    • For each surviving fish of your color, you will receive one scale.
    • The largest fish in the Pond will earn a bonus of five scales for its owner.
    • In the event that multiple fish are tied for the largest, the five-scale bonus will be distributed as evenly as possible among those owners; any remainder will be taken by Lluvy. For example, if two fish have tied for the largest, each owner would receive two scales, and Lluvy would receive the fifth scale.
    • If six or more fish are tied for the largest, Lluvy will receive all five of the bonus scales.


    Remember, your goal in this game is to obtain as many scales as possible. Make whatever deals you need to make in order to obtain them in both the short term and long term. Good luck!
