Secret Story – TF Edition


Hy Tennis Forum, this is the TF edition of a very popular and famous game in France and in Portugal, it’s the “Secret Story-TF Edition”, this is a similar game to “Big Brother” but with more excitement as everyone involved will be here to keep their secret and play like in Big Brother. So X players will be chosen by the manager according to its choose. Everyone interested in playing should state that on this thread and send me a PM with their basic information and the secret they want to keep and play with throughout the game. Your secret has to be something related to you and or related to your past, and obviously you can make up the secret you want, you can also have a common secret with someone else you choose to. On your PM specify your secret and put details about it.

Now how the game works:
During the game your objective is to keep your secret from others and try to find the others secrets. Every week each player has up to 3 secret predictions and a minimal number of 1 prediction, and once 1 secret is discovered then no more guesses can be made that week, a player who sees is secret revealed will be put up for elimination but is not automatically eliminated.

In the beginning everyone starts with 25,000 points and their secret to keep, each week we will see players being eliminated and eventually we will have the final winner.

For every time you try to predict a players secret and you fail:

you will lose half of your points
those points will go to the player you tried to discover their secret

For every time you try to predict a players secret and you succeed:

You will get all the points from that player
That player will be with 0 points and automatically put up for elimination

Each week will consist of the following:
Tuesday - Challenge
Wednesday- Risk It!
Friday - Nominations
Sunday - Elimination


Reward for the challenge is points, best place gets highest points and so on. Winner of the challenge will get to go to Risk It!, loser of the challenger will be announced and will have to give one valid hint about his secret.

Risk It!

Winner of the challenge takes risk and gets a bad consequence or doesn't take risk and nothing happens. I will tell you about the consequence and from that you decide to risk or not risk in obtaining the positive thing. This means the winner of challenge will get a chance to take a positive thing for his advantage but in order to do it he will have to first take a bad consequence.


The players with less points are nominated, the number of them will vary according to the week eliminations and to the twists. Then everyone who is not nominated will vote and choose 2 or more players for elimination


Everyone has 1 vote and the most voted players who are up for elimination will be out of the game. That player will then reveal his secret.

Week Talks

There will be week talks about specific topics in which every player will have to comment in order for the players to get to know eachother, topics like your takes on politics, your family situation, obviously this is a game and you can say whatever you want. Also we will make special things like awards, etc.

Secret Missions

Each week I will give 1 secret mission for certain players. This missions are secret and never supposed to be revealed to anyone. If that happens then you will be up for a bad consequence. If you get the mission right you obtain money from it. The fact someone finds out you are on a mission doesn't make you lose it, you just have to be convincing enough to act through it.


You must never tell your secret to anyone
You must always do your best to be successful in your missions
You must never tell your missions to someone else
Please take into account I will only give max. 24 hours for someone to answer my PM, because the game really will have to be on exact time.


The game will be full of twists. :oh: Twists will make some differences in the details above, all them will be announced on the beginning of the week unless they are part of a mission.

So don't tell anyone, because this is a secret! :angel:

(That's the motto :p Obviously you can tell people to join here)

Secret Story – Week 1


Week 1 - Introduction

This week's theme is Personalities & History. And so we will have our Challenge and Week Talks related to those themes. Monday we will head our first Week talk, where every player has to introduce themselves to the other players telling something about their personality and also something about their history. Week Talk starts Sunday and can last for all week but every player should make their introduction to the game this first week.

Challenge & Risk It!

Then we have the Challenge on Tuesday which will be related to this weeks theme. The challenges will all have a timing factor, which means the time you take to send the answers of the challenge will be a factor in case of ties on the amount of correct answers. The challenge will be posted Tuesday, 27 November, 12 PM GMT time so try to be online as soon as possible to send your answers. The deadline for the challenge is 24 hours, it might take some time. Players will be reward with the following points based on their relative places at the challenge:

Winner - 10000
Runner-Up - 9700
3rd - 9400
4th - 9100
5th - 8800
6th - 8500
7th - 8200
8th - 7900
9th - 7600
10th - 7300
11th - 7000
12th - 6700
13th - 6400
14th - 6100
15th - 5800
16th - 5500
17th - 5200
18th - 4900
19th - 4600
20th - 4300

Results for the challenge will be posted after the deadline has passed. Winner of the challenge will then go play "Risk It!" with the result of it being announced in the following 24 hours and the last placed of the challenge will have to give a valid hint for his secret posting it on this thread after approval from the manager.


During the week you have to make at least 1 attempt (this has to be prior to the nomination deadline - Friday, 30 November 6PM GMT, if you don't do so you lose 75% of your points) to guess a secret and a maximum of 3. If you fail to guess the secret you lose 50% of your points with those going to the player you tried to guess the secret. In case anyone finds a secret, the person whose secret was revealed is up for elimination and loses all his points to the person who found the secret. Plus, when one secret is revealed then no more attempts to discover secrets will be allowed. Players have to PM the manager for secret attempts with the result being published later by the manager on the thread.


There will be missions during this week for all players, those are secret missions which you are never to reveal to anyone, even after you make the mission. For any mission you make right you get 2000. Missions will obviously be different from all people, but if you at least show effort to make your mission you will get the points. I will PM people with their missions for this week and the results of it will be revealed later. ;)


The deadline for choosing the players for nomination is: Friday, 30 November 6PM GMT which means after this hour the 4 players with less points are up for nominations. Everyone who is not nominated will then vote and choose 2 players for eliminations. The player with the highest number of points will be the chooser in case of a tie.


The 2 players resulting from nomination and anyone else whose secret is revealed (if that's the case) are up for elimination. Everyone expect the players up for elimination will vote to eliminate 1 player. The player with the highest number of points will be the chooser in case of a tie.

Nov 22nd, 2012, 11:46 PM
I have secrets from 12 players until now, I sent PMs already and am waiting for the remaining players to send their secrets, once again I remember, your secrets can be made-up. ;)

That's the intro for Week 1, Sunday I will create another thread for the Secret Story House and we will use that thread for everything. Please read carefully what are all the things you are supposed to do during the week, and pay attention that you will have to come to TF atleast one time a day, which everyone does already :yeah: If you don't understand something this is the right time to ask me about it. ;)

So Sunday we start with Week Talks and Tuesday is first challenge :yeah:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 05:02 AM
I'm ready to win.

Nov 23rd, 2012, 06:29 AM
could you send us remainders of some kind? it's too difficult to think about everything :sobbing:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 06:34 AM
12 PM GMT is 7 AM east coast and 5 AM west coast... This will not work. :/

Nov 23rd, 2012, 01:55 PM
12 PM GMT is 7 AM east coast and 5 AM west coast... This will not work. :/

This. :sad:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 02:45 PM
About the timing, there is a problem there because of the Aussies too. :sobbing: So I don't know what is best. Maybe if I put it at 10PM GMT it will be better for everyone :shrug: That's 9AM for Aussies, 11PM for most Europeans, 3PM for US :shrug: Any other suggestion?

And I will send PMs for challenges, risk it, nominations, eliminations. And one with the secret mission too, all you have to remember for is that before nomination deadline you will have to try to guess one secret atleast :yeah:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 04:40 PM
I've decided to withdraw but good look to everyone else. :yeah:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 05:21 PM
What does one have to do, concretely if they participate, except find a secret

Nov 23rd, 2012, 05:59 PM
Okay Wally :hug:

Dominic, you have to read first post, it says everything you have to do there ;)

Nov 23rd, 2012, 07:26 PM
How about you give 24 hours to do a challenge and not time us.

Nov 23rd, 2012, 07:37 PM
That brings the problem in case ties happen. :shrug: The time factor would be used only to solve the ties.

Nov 23rd, 2012, 07:47 PM
Tell us which challenges are timed so that we can do them when we have the time and have a read receipt attached to the message. :shrug:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 08:36 PM
Okay, in addition to that I will ask an extra question as a Tie-break, gonna probably use the example from previous big brother edition, a question like "How many users will get everything right?", then comes time as a tie-breaker. This weeks challenge is already done and time will come as the 2nd tie-breaker then :yeah:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 08:43 PM
When do we start :oh:

Nov 23rd, 2012, 08:45 PM
Well tomorrow I open thread and you introduce to eachother. Then 1st challenge is Tuesday :cheer:
