Game Summary Edit

Series Twist: Players were trying to conquer the world. In this specific season they were trying to conquer Japan. To be successful at this goal they needed to defeat both each other AND the ruler of the country at the time (Taro Aso). At some point in the game the country's ruler would hold a census, giving them the chance to remove someone of their choosing from the game who did not sign said census. The leader would then enter the game as a player.

Season Twist: At the start of the game, players took part in a challenge which declared an Emperor for both tribes. The perks of being Emperor were that they decided who partook in the challenges for their tribe as well as single-handedly broke all Tribal Council ties. Any time the opposing tribe went to TC, the Emperor was allowed to give immunity to any player of their choosing from said losing tribe. This later perk only lasted until the Census.

Season Twist: Each Emperor had a Shogun, chosen by the Emperors, and only they knew the identity of their Shogun. It was the Shogun's duty to protect their Emperor. If at any time a tribe voted out their Emperor, that Emperor's Shogun would take the fall and leave the game in their place.

Challenge Twist: Adrian & Rob became captains for winning the Emperor Challenge; responsible for creating the tribes.
