Here are the rules for playing Knock Out.

1. A Knock Out List is presented for a ranking battle (examples: superheroes, movie trilogies, breakfast cereals, etc.).
1a. To avoid confusion, the Knock Out List presenter may choose to add an additional objective; for example, posting the topic "NFL TEAMS" could mean favorite team, best mascot, best coaching staff, etc. (examples: best superpower, worst third movie, best cartoon mascot, etc.)

2. List entries begin with 15 points.

3. Anyone may vote, but you are limited to one ballot per 24 hour period (note: if you vote at 11:59 PM your time, yes, you may vote again at 12:01 AM your time).

4. A ballot may include up to three votes according to these rules:
3a. During Phase One, votes may be one (+) or two plus (++) or one (-) or two minus (--).
3b. During Phase Two, votes may be one plus (+) or one (-) or two minus (--).
3c. Phase Two begins when half of the list entries have been knocked out (for example, if there are 15 entries, Phase Two begins when the eighth entry is knocked out).

5. When an entry loses all points (ending with zero or negative points), it is Knocked Out and moved out of the battling list and into the ranking list.

6. Knock Out rounds continue until there is a single entry left and a final ranking is available.

7. The BrainDen player who posted the final Knock Out has rights to post the next Knock Out List. Another eager player may choose to post a new Knock Out List if the player with honors hesitates for more than 24 hours of his/her final Knock Out of the previous list.



I'll start us off with an NFL TEAM themed Battle List. In the quote box is the original list.


NFC TEAMS (objective: favorite team)

Arizona Cardinals - 15
Atlanta Falcons - 15
Carolina Panthers - 15
Chicago Bears - 15
Dallas Cowboys - 15
Detroit Lions - 15
Green Bay Packers - 15
Minnesota Vikings - 15
New Orleans Saints - 15
New York Giants - 15
Philadelphia Eagles - 15
St. Louis Rams - 15
San Francisco 49ers - 15
Seattle Seahawks - 15
Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 15
Washington Redskins - 15



Here is what a ballot post would look like

Green Bay Packers ++
Minnesota Vikings --
Tampa Bay Buccaneers --

NFC TEAMS

Green Bay Packers - 17
Arizona Cardinals - 15
Atlanta Falcons - 15
Carolina Panthers - 15
Chicago Bears - 15
Dallas Cowboys - 15
Detroit Lions - 15
New Orleans Saints - 15
New York Giants - 15
Philadelphia Eagles - 15
St. Louis Rams - 15
San Francisco 49ers - 15
Seattle Seahawks - 15
Washington Redskins - 15
Minnesota Vikings - 13
Tampa Bay Buccaneers - 13


[Note: reordering the battling list according to current point totals helps immensely as the game progresses.]

Thanks, and I hope you enjoy!

Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill just laughed at Jack as he sat there unconscious.

Jack should've known that Jill was a baddie . . .
