WHAT IS IT?

In short, it works similar to the Tapology Survivor game in the sense that it continues every week until there's a winner (or in some cases in this game no winner) but instead of picking your fighters, get assigned a random fighter from the upcoming UFC card and hope they win. 

FORMAT:

1) To enter, simply say that you want to enter at the start of a new game. The length of the games depend entirely on how long it takes to either find a winner or eliminate everyone.


2) Then, you will randomly be assigned a fighter from the upcoming UFC card. This will be decided by me using this site I found wheeldecide.com and putting all the fighters names on a wheel and going through the list of players one by one and spinning the wheel to decide which fighter they get. I'll make a very low quality video of the draw and post it here to show I'm not deliberately messing with anyone in particular. It might mean that some people end up with the same fighter but that doesn't affect the game as it's more of an everybody fighting for themselves kinda game rather than a head to head game.


3) If your randomly assigned fighter wins their fight then you're through to the next round. This happens every week until there is only one left and they will be the winner. In a unique twist to make the game as stupid as possible, if everyone eventually goes out, then nobody wins the game and the game will be marked in the record books as "nobody ******* won" or something like that. For example, if there are 2 or 3 people left and they all have losing fighters then nobody wins the game. I feel this also adds weight to the game as you have to be REALLY lucky to be a winner as you literally have to be luckier than every other competitor to be the only one left standing!


WHAT DOES THE WINNER GET?

A place on the list of winners that will be displayed on the opening post of every new thread and their current AV put on the new game poster (see below) in the middle of the horseshow so they effectively become the poster boy/girl/other for the new game!

Any questions, just ask! And remember, please don't take this game too seriously! I mean, it's practically a satire of the Survivor Game when you think about it lol!

Through to the 4th Round

We came into the round with 5 but the MMA Gods have decided that only 2 are worthy! The two lucky bastards are:

  • Casual008
  • Baron Von Rattus

Good luck you two! It'll be interesting to see what happens. We could have a winner next week, or it could drag on forever! And remember..... if both of your fighters lose then nobody wins!

Feedback

With the Lucky Bastard Game: 1st Edition in the history books, what feedback have you guys got for me?  How can I improve it or what could I add/remove to make it better? This game was basically an experiment and I wasn't sure how it would go so all feedback both positive and negative is welcome!

May this victory be an inspiration to ratkind everywhere, from the sewers to the prairies, from the cities to the pet cages

Hunted, mocked and ridiculed, rats have faced genocide for a millennium... It is time for a new savior, a new Rat-Jesus or Rat-Muhammad figure to rise up for all ratkind and help the rats and other critters unite and rise against the bastard races of humans, cats, hounds and their other enemies... This will be a crusade for all rats future and past, many rats will fall, and the rats will slay many... Live under the rat fist or die!

Tapology Lucky Bastard Game: 2nd Edition

I'm going to make a new thread for the Lucky Bastard Game where I'll post all the future games as I think it'll be easier for everyone to keep track of if it's all on one thread. I would've done it for this thread it it would seem weird as it's called the 1st Edition so I'll just call it the Lucky Bastard Game Thread or something. 


Here's the link to the new thread!
