Eviction

RULES

EVICTION, based on TV’s Big Brother, is the ultimate game of social strategy, adaptation, and creative thinking.

The game is divided into different rounds. In each round players face off in an HOH Competition that tests them mentally, physically, and strategically. The winner of the challenge becomes the Head of Household (HOH) for that round of the game. The HOH has the responsibility to select two nominees for eviction and reveals his or her choices at the Nomination Ceremony.

The players who are nominated for eviction have the opportunity to save themselves by competing for the Power of Veto (POV) along with the current HOH and three randomly selected players. The winner of the Veto Competition has the power to save one of the nominees from eviction and reveals his or her decision at the Veto Ceremony. If the POV is used on someone who is on the block, the HOH immediately chooses a replacement nominee.

After the nominees are finalized, players attend an Eviction Ceremony where the player with the most votes is evicted from the game. Following the eviction, the remaining players compete for HOH and the cycle of the game continues. As players are evicted one-by-one, the jury begins to form and gains members until the Final Eviction Ceremony where someone is crowned winner of EVICTION!

Players must come up with their own strategy on how to best play the game, such as forming alliances or back-dooring someone. At different points in the game there may be twists and luxury competitions.

 

 

GLOSSARY

Alliances
Agreements in which players work together at different times in the game to vote a particular person out of the game.
Back-dooring
A form of strategy in which the Head of Household targets someone for eviction that is not originally nominated during the Nomination Ceremony. A player is “back-doored” if the Power of Veto is used to save someone from eviction, he or she becomes the replacement nominee, and is then voted out of the game.
The Block
Slang used to describe the position of being nominated for eviction. Players who are “on the block” are nominated for eviction.
Eviction Ceremony
The ceremony in which players in the game convene with the Host to evict someone out of the game. During this time the Host asks players a series of questions regarding the game. After the question and answer session is over, players unanimously vote to evict someone from the game. Once all votes are cast, the Host reveals the votes and the person with the most votes must exit the game.
Final Eviction Ceremony
This is the last Eviction Ceremony of the game in which all players return and members of the jury ask the finalists questions regarding how they played the game. The finalists have their chance to argue why they believe they deserve to win the game. After all questions have been asked and answered, members of the jury unanimously cast their vote for who they believe deserves to win the game. Once all votes are cast, the host reveals the votes and the player with the most votes is crowned winner of EVICTION.
HOH Competition
An individual challenge in which players compete for the position of Head of Household.
Head of Household (HOH)
The player who is in control of the power for a specific round in the game. Players become Head of Household by winning the HOH Competition. The HOH has the responsibility to nominate two players for eviction during the Nomination Ceremony. If the Power of Veto is used during the Veto Ceremony, the HOH must choose a replacement nominee for eviction. The HOH does not cast a vote during the Eviction Ceremony, but is the deciding vote in the case of a tie. The HOH cannot compete in the HOH competition following his or her time in power.
The Jury
The jury is made up of a certain number of evicted players who have the responsibility of voting for the finalist that they believe deserves to win the entire game. Towards the end of the game, the jury asks the finalists questions regarding how they played the game. The members of the jury then unanimously cast their vote for the winner. The finalist that receives the majority of the jury votes is crowned winner of EVICTION.
Luxury Competition
A team or individual challenge in which the winner receives some sort of reward, such as a prize or an advantage in the game.
Nomination Ceremony
The ceremony in which the Head of Household reveals his or her two nominees for eviction and provides an explanation for his or her decision.
Nominee
A player who is nominated for eviction and faces the threat of being voted out of the game.
Power of Veto (POV)
This power allows a player to save themselves or someone else from being nominated for eviction, by vetoing one of the HOH's nominations. If a player chooses to use the POV and save someone from the block, he or she cannot be nominated as the replacement nominee.
Replacement Nominee
The player who is nominated for eviction after the Power of Veto is used to save one of the two original nominees. If this player is evicted, he or she has been “back-doored.”
Strategy
An individual decision on how one chooses to play the game.
Twists
Twists are surprise changes to the structure of the game which force the players to be adaptable and reassess their strategies. An example of a twist is the return of a previously evicted player into the game.
Veto Ceremony
The ceremony in which the Power of Veto winner can choose to remove someone from the block. If the POV is used, the HOH must immediately choose a replacement nominee.
Veto Competition
An individual challenge in which players compete for the Power of Veto. The only players who can compete are the current HOH, the two players nominated for eviction, and three players selected at random.
