Contestants also earn one garnet for every 10 chips won. The eight contestants are divided into two villages: One contestant is randomly chosen at the beginning to be the burglar; the other players start the game with 10 gold. In each round, both villages will select one player to exile from their village. If the burglar is exiled, no gold is stolen; if the burglar remains in town, he steals one gold from all other villagers there. Those who were exiled then travel to the other village to start the next round.
A total of 10 rounds are played this way, with the amount of gold held by each player revealed after every other round but without identifying what letter is associated with each player. After 10 rounds, the town without the burglar wins; each villager receives two garnets, and the villager with the most gold in the winning village earns two Tokens of Life. The town that has the burglar loses, and the villager with the least amount of gold left is the Death Match candidate.
Additionally, if the burglar has more gold than any other villager, he wins as well; otherwise, he automatically becomes the second Death Match candidate. Additional packs of cards can be bought for 1, 2, or 3 garnets, with the effectiveness of each pack based on their price. Players must construct a deck of 20 cards using those they began with and those they purchased. Upon their turn, the cards are given to the dealer, who shuffles them up to three times at the player's request, spreading out the cards after each shuffle so the player can see the order of the cards.
The purchased cards have a differently-colored back, indicating where they are in the deck. The dealer then starts with the top card in the player's deck and asks the player whether to "open" the card and turn it over, adding to their sequence; or "pass" the card, discarding it and continuing with the next card in the deck. The objective is to produce the largest total from 10 cards. If multiple numbers or operators are placed side by side, only the leftmost number or operator is counted and the others are discarded.
Additionally, if the sequence begins with an operator, a 0 card is placed at the start of the operator, and if the sequence ends with an operator, that operator is discarded. The player who makes the highest total from their cards wins two Tokens of Life and five garnets; the second-highest total earns two garnets.

The player with the lowest total is the Death Match candidate. Each contestant begins the match with 10 beans or kongs , and are split up into two teams of 3. In each round, players secretly deposit as many kongs as they wish into a jar. At the end of the round, the team that deposits the most kongs wins the round, and the number of kongs deposited by the losing team is revealed.
The first team to win three rounds wins the match, and each player from the winning team earns one garnet for every kong they have left over, and the player from the winning team with the most kongs left wins two Tokens of Life. The player from the losing team with the fewest kongs remaining is the Death Match candidate. Thus, the dilemma is finding a way to deposit as many kongs as possible to win the match, but not so many to become vulnerable if your team loses. A series of auctions are held, with number and operator tiles being put up for bids.
Players have 5 seconds to place a bid using one of their numbered cubes; once a bid is placed, the other players have 5 seconds to match or increase the bid, otherwise the highest bidder wins the tile s. If nobody places a bid on a tile, or two players bid the same number on a tile, the tile is discarded. Any cubes used in an auction are also discarded, whether or not the bid was successful.

The order in which the tiles are auctioned off is known to the players ahead of time. Players must use all of the tiles obtained through auction to complete a mathematic equation that equals Number tiles cannot be combined to make two-digit numbers.
The first player to complete an equation that equals 10 wins the match, two Tokens, and 10 garnets. Any player who does not have a valid equation once the game is over is automatically declared a loser, and the winner chooses a Death Match candidate from these players. If nobody can complete an equation equalling 10 by game's end, the player who is closest wins and receives a garnet amount equal to the total of their expression, up to If multiple players reach 10 together, they are declared joint winners.

This game is played in similar fashion to episode 5's Scamming Horse Race. Each of the remaining contestants invites a friend to the studio to serve as a teammate. Teams are assigned a specific room in the studio, and while the guests are free to enter anyone elses room, the original players are not allowed to leave their respective rooms. Like the original Scamming Horse Race, teams are given a clue to the predetermined outcome of a horse race. Additional clues are given after every three rounds, and there are clues for sale, with the first clue purchased costing 3 garnets and each subsequent clue costing one more garnet than the last.
Once again, bets can only be placed until a horse is within three spaces of finishing, and a horse's odds go down the more bets that are placed on it. Each player and guest receives 20 betting chips, but since the players cannot leave their rooms, the guests must bet for both themselves and their teammate. At the end of the race, the two people with the highest winnings are given a Token of Life with a guest automatically transferring their Token to the player if they win.
The two players without a token automatically play in the Death Match. Players also receive a garnet for every 10 chips won in the race between themselves and their guest. Ten guests are invited to the studio, and the three contestants are given one hour to converse with the guests and gather information about them. The guests, however, have been instructed to resist the interrogations of the contestants - if three or more people are in the room, the questions are too invasive, or the contestants make a direct request of the guest, they are supposed to withhold their answers.
Once the hour is over, the game is played in two rounds. The main premise of a question cannot be repeated, nor can the question be longer than 12 letters. Guests must answer truthfully. Contestants are shown neither the questions asked by the other contestants, nor the answers given. Contestants score a point every time five guests answer Yes and five answer No. The player who scores the most points wins the match and earns one garnet for each point scored. The other two players automatically play in the Death Match. The final match consists of three 1 vs. The third game, Gyul!
Prior to the final match, the 11 eliminated contestants return to the studio. Each one randomly draws an advantage from 12 available, and picks which of the finalists to grant the advantage to.

As it is, I have the impression that Jesse Kellerman was free to write anything, in any manner he chose, bypassing the gatekeepers in the traditional publishing industry who reserve such liberties for only the most seasoned and lucrative of writers, such as Dean Koontz, for example.
Though Jesse Kellerman tends to use poetic license in excess, I have to admit, most of the time it works. I found it very off-putting in the beginning of the novel and in the very end, where he addresses the reader directly. I realize he means this as a matter of probability, but I found his presumptuousness bordering on offensive. If someone were reading a book on coping with depression, it would be acceptable for the author to say you, the reader, are probably suffering from depression.
Addressing the reader directly, as he does, is a risky technique that few have mastered.
But the pace is molasses slow, and lacks the request superb prose to make such trudging enjoyable. Were it not for a few major shortcomings, this could have been a truly great novel. Jesse Kellerman out does both his parents with this wonderful, character driven novel. Definately one of the best books I've read this year. This is a story in a story.
With a believable family history every do often. Ethan is a bit self absorbed, but passionate. He's come into some art very unusual art that is done by a missing artist. When he puts on a show of the art in his art gallery, they are a sensation. All is well until he hears from a retired cold case detective and the mystery turns into a dangerous hunt.
