The List
 
Jinx - 05:31pm Apr 30, 2000 PST
All you need is a chip and a chair. Shuffle up and deal!

Have you ever watched The List on VH1? Well this Post and Vote is similar to that show.

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, there is a panel of people (on the show 4) who are asked to name their top choices of a given topic. They all give their choices. If more than one person chooses the same item/name, it will only show up on the list once. Then each person who nominated must remove one item from the list (refraining is no longer an option), giving a reason why you are removing it. So the list would reduce in size and the top 3 must be chosen from what is left. One item may be returned to the list by the current host, so arguing why something should be put back is encouraged.

Note about removal: If you don’t know what any of the choices are, then choose something at random. Daft reasons for removing something (e.g. “too many vowels” or “rhymes with a name of someone I dislike”) are perfectly acceptable. Note to host: Although everyone should be removing something, it may be that a player is unable to get to their computer. Provided you have left a decent period of time for removals, it is acceptable to move on to the final list for voting if some have not removed.

Please note: Unlike most P&G games, this is played over 2 weeks, although if the game is moving quickly, it could be played in less.

The format of the game is as follows:
Monday to Thursday - give your top 3 choices, with current host posting a complete list Tuesday night or Wednesday morning;
Friday to Tuesday - removal of one item, only by those who submitted choices, otherwise there wouldn't be much of a list left ;o)
Wednesday to Sunday - votes of top 3 from what is left of the list by everyone and anyone, except the host (even if you haven’t played so far). Unlike other Post n Go voting games, you are allowed to vote for your own - assuming you have any left!

New host will be determined if one of your choices is named No. 1 on the final list. If there is a tie (please note - this is worked out differently to the rest of P&G) the first person that posted their choice that made number one will be granted the host spot. If he/she were to pass their turn, then the person who posted the tying choice will be granted the host spot. Also, keep in mind, the current host can give their choices but they will not be part of the lists for removal and voting.

For the hosts: In order to keep the same format:
Removal List - have list of items then a list of those who posted choices;
Final List - well, whatever is left :o)

The HOST may have the option to put back one choice on the list by 1 of 2 ways: 1) by popular demand from the voting audience; or 2) if they feel that one choice deserves to be on the list. The host will put the deleted choice back on the list only after the elimination period is over. At the same time, the host may also have the option of NOT putting anything back on the list.

Don't be disappointed if any or all of your choices don't make the list. Remember this is all for fun!!! Enjoy! :o)

A birth certificate shows you were born. A death certificate shows you have died. A photo album shows you have lived.

I think I'm just going to re-retire "The List" again, at least for now. We just don't have enough players.
