After learning about and eating the clover looking plant that the old man gave to me I only need to eat again Day 5 Round Two and still have my backup food supply.

I hope to get another chance of meeting up with fellow survivors, but shooting and shouting people don't sound like a good option.

Thanks @papa-pepper ...not giving much information about our options, this has been the most difficult day so far to make a decision. Hahaha

Edit - Side note: Good luck to all contestants still alive... If those shooting, shouting people happen to be other fleeing survivors, then I wish you all of the best hope what ever you where shooting at did not manage to kill to many of your friends.

@novaatebatman I am sure you are still actively busy with the spreadsheet and appreciate all the hard work you are doing, I just had a quick look at it and I see my inventory items not listed.. Just a head up..

teamed up or not...@resistancemedic and I take a hard left while the majority of the remaining masses hurdle forward or right drawing the closing enemies in their direction.

option #2 for @liberty-minded

I'm bedded down making as little noise as possible.

I have 11 rounds for my pistol and 1 backup food supply of beef jerky. I ate wild edibles and need to eat again before the end of Day 5 to avoid starvation.

I have an unloaded pistol, water purifications tablets and... nothing else I believe.

I ate my jerky while running away from a madman last round.

Im betting theres a minefield or something on the other side, so I wont take my chances crossing the barbed wire.

I choose OPTION 2

I have a Magnesium Firestarter, one backup food supply and water purification tablets. I got another backup food supply last round but I had to eat it to avoid starvation, Which leads me back to one backup food supply in my inventory.

I choose option 2 this round and hope for the best.

I have a fire starter and a backup supply of food (beef jerky), I'll choose option 2 this round. My goodness that was a lucky can of SpaghettiO's! After stealing the one can from Tom and eating my canned pasta I heard gunshots in the distance. Running as fast as I could I suddenly reached a fence. I consider going straight. Fearing I'd get tangled in the barbed wire or those with guns would catch up to me I decide to turn left. Since my left rabbit paw is luckier than my right paw I took my chances.

Magnesium Firestarter, 1 backup food supply, and Water Purification Tablets. I ate the beans b/c I was starving and wouldn't eat one of the many dead players. Or would I?. I decide to take the left route. I believe who ever is shooting at me will catch up to me and get me if I climb through or wait for him. I think he is more likely to go right if he doesn't see me. So I pick OPTION 2 - Try to turn to the left and follow the fence that way.

I took a can from Tom and ate it. Hence, I still have one backup food supply from the beginning, a pistol with no ammo and water purification tablets. I choose Option 2 and go left.

Option 2--I have a loaded pistol with 11 rounds of ammo, 2 backup food supplies (both cans of beans), water purification tablets, and at clover two rounds ago, so don't need to eat again until the end of Day Five.

Oh, thank goodness I was able to lift that can of beans away from Tom's RV and get away safely. I knew approaching from the back and not being greedy were good ideas. I'm just thankful I was able to get more food for my people, and lead them away with their lives. As we moved deeper into the woods, it sounded like other groups coming up behind us weren't so lucky.

You're really taking a chance on trusting strangers in these strange times. We got lucky with a calculated risk regarding the guy in the tree. It's not an option I'll be making again soon, and if and when I do, it certainly won't be made lightly.

That is why I am determined we avoid the shooting, shouting group we hear behind us. Nothing good can be coming of a group that is shooting and shouting. Either they are trying to get away from someone/something, or are chasing someone/something for nefarious purposes. We don't want to get involved or in their way in either instance.

Going through the barbed wire fence isn't really an option. It's obviously there to keep something in (or possibly out), and we don't want to go in there and potentially meet up with some dangerous animal or herd of them. We also don't want to risk getting shot for being on someone's private property. There is also the danger of one or more of us getting injured by the wire (in a time when we have no first aid supplies), or getting stuck on it (and left at the mercy of whatever is coming toward us in the woods).

We're also not going to try to hide and shoot at whatever is coming, because we don't know if they are friend or foe, and wouldn't want to shoot friendly people or those in need, and also because we only have one gun and 11 rounds of ammo, and we have no idea just how armed these other people are. We could be way outgunned. It's not a risk I'm willing to take, aside from the moral issue of it.

That just leaves two options. Go right along the fence, or go left along the fence.

We don't know what is in either direction, so it really is a coin toss. Either direction could lead us to disaster or salvation (or at least one or more useful items to use as supplies).

After some deliberation, we decide to go left. It is the natural inclination of most Americans to turn right, based on the driving laws and unspoken walking rules in crowds. Always keep to the right. So, the violent-sounding group behind us will likely turn right, too, if they get this far. It isn't guaranteed, but it is the most likely action they will take if they get as far as the fence.

We need to make sure we take every opportunity to avoid them.

Therefore, turning left makes the most sense. It is against the natural instincts of most people. While we don't know what is to the left, we don't know what is to the right, either. At least by going left, there is a lesser chance of us being followed. And, in these weird times, that is about as close to a guarantee of safety as we can get (there is no real guarantee of safety in these times, but we take the one with the highest odds we can get).

Hoping we made the right choice, based on our knowledge of human psychology and our desire to avoid unnecessary risk, we turn left and march on into the woods.

I have 11 rounds a magnesium firestarter and need to eat by the end of day 5. I choose option 2 and am hoping to find water down the hill somewhere.

I have an unloaded pistol & 1 backup food supply (beans). I last ate my jerky at the end of day 4 to avoid starvation. I will choose option 2 this round.

I managed to sneak round the back and grab a can of beans which I ate. I still have a backup food supply (beef jerky) and water purification tablets. I choose option 2 this round.

I have an unloaded pistol, a backup food supply and water purification tablets, I'll choose option 2 this round.

The person who is shooting has ammos, i need ammos... but let's play it safe.

I choose option 2.

I had to eat, fortunately I had a back-up food. Fortunately, I managed to get another one.

Inventory:

1 Pistol (Day 1 - Round 1)
1 Water Purification Tablets (Day 3 - Round 1)
1 Back-up food (Day 4 - Round 2)

I have an unloaded pistol and ate my backup food supply. I don't want to get snagged on the fence, so I'll try to find a safe way to cross to the left.

I have a loaded pistol with 11 rounds, 1 backup food supply (beef jerky), ate the bush, ate some roaches and ate what looks like clover; Now I choose option 2 - turn left at the fence.

I have an unloaded pistol and water purification tablets. I choose option 2.

I have a loaded pistol with 11 rounds of ammunition and water purification tablets. I ate beef, I'll choose option 2 this round

Option # 2


After about an hour of deliberation and antoher 40 minutes of asking everyone we knew, right or left was the general consensus. Then after a failed long distance coin toss (3 ties in a row) we decided to either call a psychic or just pick one. We don't know any psychics so.... Option 2 it is...

Hey, what's your inventory? (Yours specifically, not combined with @lokii's.)

Making sure I have it right.

His was..
Pistol (11rounds)
Water Purification Tablets
1 Backup food supply

Part of what I was wondering was specifically what the backup supply was.

I have managed to figure out the error that occurred. I had found his name, clicked on it, then I guess didn't click the cell where I needed to put your name as his teammate.

I ended up with two players named @lokii. I figured out which was you and which was him. :)

Awesome, glad you got us seperated lol. I can't even remember what my back up supply was.

Thank you for your work on the spreadsheet, definitely a nice added feature.

Haha, yeah. I'm glad I was able to sort things out fairly quickly.

Thanks! I'm hoping the spreadsheet really helps!

I have:
1 empty pistol,
1 backup food supply stolen from Tom
& Water Purification Tablets

I ate:
The limes from the tree
The insects from the board
My first scavenged backup food supply

Crossing the barbed wire is too risky, one can get stuck.
Talking to these people is suicide and I don't have ammunition to defend myself.
Right is not always right, so I will follow the left fence!

I'll choose Option 2 this round.

I have an unloaded pistol and I choose Option 2 this round!

I have an unloaded pistol and I choose Option 2 (try left and follow the fence that way).

I have a Magnesium Firestarter, and 2 a back up food supply (jerkys and beans), as well as water purification tablets.

I ate beauty berries and i choose option 2. Try to turn to the left and follow the fence that way.

Maybe chase will turn to the right (as often happens). Behind the barbed wire can be wild beasts or to mines. While I climb I can get hurt. People are catching up me, do not seem to me good. Pistol ammo I also have not.
This remains an option.

I have a pistol with 11 rounds of ammunition now,besides I have a backup food[beef jerky] and some water purification tablets with me.I also ate those plants in the last round that the kind man gave me so now I need to eat before end of day 5.In the last round I got a can of beans.Now I have two backup food [beef jerky+can of beans].I will choose OPTION 2 - Try to turn to the left and follow the fence that way for this round.

I have a pistol with 11 roimds amd a backup food supply. I hope my luck holds up and will be taking option 2

I have an unloaded pistol, some beans and water purification tablets. I choose option # 2.

I choose option 2 this round making a hard left. I need to eat at the end of day 5 as I ate clover looking Plant. I have a pistol, 11 rounds of ammo, 2 back up food supplies (jerky and I was able to swipe a can from Tom), and water purification tablets.
