How To Play Fantasy Survivor

How do fantasy leagues for Survivor work?

Survivor Fantasy Leagues Are Starting Soon!

It’s your favorite time of the year – Survivor time. It’s finally time to see who gets to walk back to camp with their torch and who is walking off in the dark. If you’re like us, you’ve thought to yourself, “Wow; it would be so fun to have a game to play along with the show.”


Well, it’s here! You can play your own version of Survivor (without trying to live off of scoops of rice for a month). Bracketology offers four different Fantasy Survivor game types: from creating a March Madness-type bracket after the first episode, to picking who is going to move on each week, to choosing a different team of contestants weekly that score (or lose) points based off doing/saying Survivor-related things. This challenge is on.


If you’re new to Bracketology, you can create an account here, or simply just sign-in if you are a veteran. Then navigate to the gaming portion of the site (our web app) by clicking Play in the top navigation bar where you can use the show dropdown or click on Survivor to play along. Are you ready to join a family of reality TV fans?


First step is joining a community. Whether it is with a group of friends or the Official Bracketology Community, the purpose here is so you can play reality TV fantasy games with the same people across multiple shows. Rather than having to join new leagues and have a cluttered dashboard, you can stay within the same community year-over-year and keep your fantasy gaming competitive! 


Once you’re in a community, create or join the community’s Survivor league. Within the league, you can play up to 3 game types at the same time. There are four different game types to choose from, and you can read more about each game type below or click on the game type header for a more in-depth look.

Tune in weekly on Wednesdays to watch Survivor on CBS. Scores are posted within your league and on the scoring recap pages here and here a few hours after the show airs, so check back to track your scores and see how you performed. Will you be crowned the Sole Survivor (winner) of your league? Good luck.
