    "ADDITION BY SUBTRACTION"

    This challenge will have 3 rounds:

    Round 1: 5 players, 1 eliminated
    Round 2: 4 players, 1 eliminated
    Round 3: 3 players, 1 eliminated, highest scorer overall of the two remaining wins.

    So, while your scores will be added over your rounds, the number of people will be subtracted.

    In every round, I will ask you to choose a number between 1 and 100 (inclusive, whole numbers only). With each round comes certain rules to help you decide which number to select.

    This challenge is designed to test your INDIVIDUAL abilities to essentially bet in such a way that you will get the maximum number of points possible without getting yourself eliminated. Because of this, there will be NO DISCUSSION/COLLABORATION on this challenge.

    In the event of people choosing the same number, the person with the longer time will count as a higher number, and the person with the shorter time will count as a lower number. Other than that, time is not important.

    Example (ranked from lowest to highest):

    Fred: 3
    George: 23 - 2 minutes
    Wendy: 23 - 7 minutes
    Nikita: 54
    Rod: 90

    Participants:

    AIW
    Aly
    GlitterxGold
    Iron Muffin
    Sir Bitter

    Non-Participants:

    Bhanny
    DoeBoy

    I will send the timed details for Round 1 shortly.

    This round is due at 10:00 PM EST on MONDAY, OCTOBER 12TH. PLEASE turn this in ASAP since there are three rounds to get through.

    Round 1 Results

    All of you have now completed the first round of the challenge.

    Round 1 Details:

      Spoiler:  

    1. Choose a number between 1 and 100 (inclusive, whole numbers only).

    2. The player with the highest number will score ZERO points for the round.

    3. The player with the middle (third) number will be ELIMINATED

    4. The lowest, second lowest, and second highest numbers will each be given that many points.


    Let's see what everyone chose:

    AIW:

      Spoiler:  
    1


    Aly:

      Spoiler:  
    33


    GlitterxGold:

      Spoiler:  
    17


    Iron Muffin:

      Spoiler:  
    42


    Sir Bitter:

      Spoiler:  
    35


    That means...

      Spoiler:  
    AIW - 1
    GlitterxGold - 17

    Aly - 33
    Sir Bitter - 35
    Iron Muffin - 42

    Aly, since you have chosen the middle number, you are eliminated from this challenge.

    Iron Muffin, since you have chosen the highest number, you scored zero points for the round.

    AIW, GlitterxGold, and Sir Bitter, you got the number of points that you requested.


    Thank you all for your quick returns! The next round will be sent shortly. You may find that the directions are less straightforward.

    Round 2 Results

    Welcome, everyone! Let's see first what the rules of Round 2 were:

      Spoiler:  
    1. Choose a number between 1 and 100 (inclusive, whole numbers only).

    2. Whoever has the third-lowest (that is to say, second-highest) number will be eliminated from the challenge, and all of their cumulative points from both rounds given to the player who chose the third-highest (that is to say, second lowest) number.

    3. If you choose a multiple of eleven, you will receive a bonus of twenty-two points on your score.

    4. The lowest number will get to steal a total of 20 points from the player(s) of his/her choice.


    Let's see what numbers everyone chose:

    AIW:

      Spoiler:  
    11


    GlitterxGold:

      Spoiler:  
    33


    Iron Muffin:

      Spoiler:  
    33


    Sir Bitter:

      Spoiler:  
    100


    Which means:

      Spoiler:  
    First, let's settle this tie between GlitterxGold and Iron Muffin.

    How long did they take to choose their numbers?

      Spoiler:  
    GlitterxGold - 1 minute
    Iron Muffin - 1 minute

    So then, I asked them to play Rock, Paper, Scissors to determine which one would be in the elimination slot.

      Spoiler:  
    Iron Muffin - PAPER /// ROCK - GlitterxGold

    AIW - 11
    Iron Muffin - 33

    GlitterxGold - 33
    Sir Bitter - 100

    AIW thus scored 33 points this round. In addition, AIW may steal up to twenty points total from Iron Muffin and Sir Bitter.

    Iron Muffin scored 55 points, as well as receiving GlitterxGold's 17 points from round one and 55 points from round two, giving him 127 points.

    Sir Bitter scored 100 points.

    Overall Scores:

      Spoiler:  
    Sir Bitter - 135
    Iron Muffin - 127
    AIW - 34

    The third and final round will be sent shortly. Choose well!

    Round 3 Results

    And now, it's time to find out who has won the Talisman competition!

    Here were the rules for the final round:

      Spoiler:  
    Final Round Rules:

    1. Choose a number between 1 and 200, inclusive (whole numbers only).

    2. The player with the lowest number will receive double points.

    3. The player with the highest number will get their choice minus 50 points.

    4. The player with the middle number will get both the higher and lower number added together as their number of points for the round.

    5. The middle number will then blindly (not knowing what numbers the other two chose) eliminate one of the other two players.

    6. Of the final two, the player with the higher overall score will win the challenge.


    AIW chose:

      Spoiler:  
    164


    Iron Muffin chose:

      Spoiler:  
    111


    Sir Bitter chose:

      Spoiler:  
    25


    Which means...

      Spoiler:  
    Iron Muffin got to eliminate one of the other two players. He chose to eliminate...

      Spoiler:  
    ..
      Spoiler:  
    .
      Spoiler:  
    Sir Bitter!

    Which means, it comes down to AIW and Iron Muffin.

    AIW scored 114 points for this round.

    Iron Muffin scored 189 points for this round.

    The overall score is...

      Spoiler:  
    AIW - 148
    Iron Muffin - 316

    Congratulations Iron Muffin! You have won "Addition by Subtraction", and are not eligible to be eliminated this round.

    In addition, you must nominate one of your competitors for eviction.

    Announcement

    I have an announcement to make:

      Spoiler:  
    DoeBoy has decided to quit the competition.

    This is highly irregular (not happening, obviously, since Sundae Morning did the same during Round 3).

    Since DoeBoy was neither eligible to vote nor eligible to participate in competitions, I have decided that the most fair course of action would be to continue the round. If you have already voted and would like to change your vote, please do so.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.
