Oh really? You guys like it? Lol.
 
But seriously, I've done it before. I've had simulated Survivor games that can last like two or three days, because you have to play for every person. Or if you don't want to get indepth, you can finish a game really quick. Seriously, simulating Survivor games (or Amazing Race or Big Brother) using pen and paper is REALLY, REALLY fun if you're a big fan of those series. I ran Blood Lottery through four times, and it was really fun each time imagining the different possible plots.
 
Basically, here's how I do Survivor. Quickly write a bunch of names. Now mentally assign some characteristics to each person, based on your impression of what that name means.  
 
Examples... Kaitlyn - snobby girl, probably weak, is she secretly strategic?  
Alice - UTR, does well at challenges.
Landon - athletic, smooth with the ladies, weakness is saying controversial things
Jack - Asian, smart, only person who can build a fire by himself
 
 Now imagine a challenge and pick a winning tribe. The losing tribe goes to TC. And this is the fun part. Imagine if those people you just invented went to TC, who would they vote out? Did Landon say something stupid that hurt his chances in the game? Does Kaitlyn like Alice or not? Would Landon's tribe be willing to vote him out? Do Jack's fire-building skills make him indispensable? You can go so many different ways, and for some reason, I get attached to certain characters, I wonder if you will too.  Cheesy
 
Anyway, now you know a secret hobby of mine. Wink

Got back 2 papers today, Mathematics and General Paper, and I passed both! Was really thankful, 'cos I didn't really expect to pass Math and the entire cohort did really badly for General Paper. Phew! =D

Today I was supposed to present my Spanish project, but I did a Powerpoint, I was the only one who did, and she didn't have a projector in her room. I went down to the library room to find one and they were taken. So I didn't get to present it today. Oh well.  Tongue

College is stressful these days. I'm praying that I'll somehow survive the next 3 weeks without jumping off the college building. If you don't see me anymore, you'll know what happened to me. LOL.
