Re: 'The Amazing Race: WTAWorld Edition' Casting/Application Thread!

The Amazing Race consists of several challenging activities throughout it. There are different types of activities that can be encountered. These are listed below.

Detour
A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. Teams must successfully complete one of the tasks in order to receive their next clue.
Some tasks may look harder, but teams that do them well may to finish them quickly. There is no penalty if a team decides to change tasks part way through.
It is possible to fail a detour task, and so in that case a team will have no choice but to complete the other option.
If you get a detour card, you only have to complete one of the tasks on it.

Roadblock
A Roadblock is a task that only some of the team may perform. You may set a certain limit on the number of roadblocks that any one person can perform throughout the race.
The television show consists of teams of two, thus only one person is allowed to complete a roadblock. In larger groups, it is recommended that more than one person completes the tasks to prevent boredom and keep group morale high.

Fast Forward
A Fast Forward is task that only one team may perform, and only one Fast Forward is present on each leg of the race. If a team completes this task, they may skip all other tasks, and proceed directly to the pitstop.
This type of task is not recommended for a social race, as it allows one team to skip to the end, meaning they will be waiting for other teams for a long time.

Yield
When a team finds a Yield sign, they have the opportunity to stop a team behind them from racing for a certain amount of time. The team must place the name of the team they wish to yield onto the Yield sign.
When the yielded team arrives at the Yield, they must stay at the Yield sign for a specific amount of time, and wait for their team leader to signal that they can move on.
If a team is ahead of you, past the Yield sign, you cannot yield them. ie. You must place a Yield on a team before they reach the Yield sign.

Pit Stop
The Pit Stop is the final destination at the end of each leg of the race. If you are running an Amazing Race over one day, or one session, then one Pit Stop is all you need.
Teams will arrive at the Pit Stop, which is marked by a mat (see designs section). A greeting party will meet each team at the mat to tell them where they are placed in the field (1st, 2nd etc).

How to play
Teams will arrive in a pre-determined race time (Usually Sunday 12:00 EST?) and wait until the first update appears in the thread.
An update would look as follows:
ROUTE INFO: Make your way into your next location.
post *make way to next location*
Teams then will have to post *make way to next location* (including the *'s). There might be several transportations to get to a location
Some transportations would reach the destenation in 5 minutes (example only), and some in 10 (again, just an example)
Teams will have to decide if to take the fastest transportation that may be too expensive, or go with the slow and cheap one.
Following the route markers, team will reach a challenge: Detour or Roadblock.
Once again, team would have to post which racer will participate or which
challenge to choose.
The finish line of the leg takes place at the Pit stop, where the host will greet the teams, and annouce if they are eliminated or not.


Rules
1. geoepee and me (Meteor Shower), and those people alone are allowed to make updates during the race.
2. You must post your money count every time you spend your money.
More rules to be updated as the race goes on.

Queen of Asia.
