Should I think of a silly concept for one again? It's been almost two years since my last one.
Do it! Wasn't your last one like a golf scoring system or something like that?

Oh yeah the reverse-scoring roulette, that was great.

for chuckles i was considering a roulette where like. say there are 10 people, you get ranked first to last and then your placement is the number of times you get put in a roulette wheel (RNG generator tbh but same diff) so first gets 1 spot, second gets 2 spots, etc. until 10th which gets 10 spots. then the (metaphorical) dice is rolled and one name is pulled from the hat to be eliminated. like a slot machine. or something i'm just making up random luck comparisons the point is it'd be a bad roulette where you just get randomly eliminated but in a weighted way compared to your performance. also considering that 1st place gets immunity instead and everyone else gets put in the roulette corresponding to their rank or etc.

i'm pretty sure nobody would play in this roulette. it's the actual worst roulette idea. which is why it sounds fun

That's a great roulette idea because it's more like an actual roulette. I'd definitely play.

i was also considering it could be like, cumulative
so that if in round 1 you got 3 slots and in round 2 you got 8 slots you'd have a total of 11 slots in round 2's roulette
so long-term performance does matter to an extent too
i just feel like it'd suck to run tho. "you sent me the second best song of the round 5 times in a row and you're eliminated while the person who's sent the worst song 5 times in a row is still here because lol RNG"

Yeah that would be the downside, definitely.

I want it now!

From a Mega Man Legends island jamming power metal to a Walrus listening to black metal, I like your story arc.

I just finished up reading this thread over the past few weeks.  As we all said, this was and still is the Roulette Gold Standard (no offense to any other hosts).  Even as a re-read, I was in tears laughing so hard on a few occasions.

Best.
Roulette.
Ever.
