|"Game 1: Fallout Floor"|
The wheel was spun for the first time and landed on red. It was revealed that it was Fallout Floor. Fallout Floor involved the 14 contestants being divided into seven teams of two, each standing on seven block planks of upside down slabs over a bottomless pit.
They then had to answer a question pertaining to the MRT and, if incorrect, the plank recede by one block. The first team to fall led to the two facing off in a head to head round to see who becomes eliminated.
Two teams fell on the same turn, resulting in a four-way head to head between MindBender15, willywilson123, Canadian_K9, and BangtanSky. The result was that BangtanSky was eliminated.
|"Game 2: The Ultimate Renovation"|
After BangtanSky's elimination, the wheel was spun again and landed on yellow. It was revealed that it was The Ultimate Renovation. The Ultimate Renovation is a game show where contestants must renovate a run-down, ugly, not visually pleasing, and/or unfinished build, while incorporating random blocks chosen by a generator. Then, a special guest judge will critique the build. In this case, the judge was Just_robinho.
The 13 remaining contestants were split into four teams, three teams of three and one team of four. Teams were forced to use 10 cauldrons, dispensers, hay bales, and item frames. The team with the lowest score would be at risk, allowing the other teams to cast votes to who they think contributed the least to the group. The blue team, comprising godzilltrain, MindBender15, jamess2912, and Gopher, scored the lowest and was thus put up for elimination. The one with the most votes was jamess2912 and was thus eliminated.
The breakdown of scores were:
|"Game 3: The Million Emerald Drop"|
After jamess2912's elimination, the wheel was spun again and landed on white. It was revealed that it was The Million Emerald Drop. The Million Emerald Drop is a game where contestants must then answer eight questions in an effort to keep as much of their money as possible. The questions were focused on the MRT.
Each question is multiple-choice, with the first four questions having four choices, the next three questions having three, and the final question having just two choices. Unlike a traditional quiz where the contestants pick one answer, however, it is possible for the contestants to hedge by placing money on multiple answers in proportion to how confident they are on the answer. However, one answer must always be left with no money on it, which ensures that on the final question, only one answer can be chosen.
Each contestant started with their own individual one million emeralds. To answer the questions, they had to message MinecraftYoshi26 the answers and their split. On question four, willywilson123 and Canadian_K9 had lost all their money and were eliminated from Game X.
The questions asked were:
1. On the new world, what line is colored brown?
2. Who has never been a mod?
3. Which of these MRT lines has the most stations?
4. Which of these New World cities is most furthest North?
|"Game 4: Only Connect"|
After willywilson123 and Canadian_K9's elimination, the wheel was spun again and landed on light blue. It was revealed that it was Only Connect. Only Connect is a game show where contestants must either find the connection between four seemingly random clues or find the fourth clue in the sequence. Based on the timing of the guess (on which clue), the more or less points a contestant may get.
In the Game X version, everyone had one guess and was playing separately and there were seven to find the connection and seven to find the fourth clue in the sequence. jphgolf4321 and MindBender15 were eliminated due to them having the lowest scores.
The questions asked were:
|"Game 5: The Amazing Race"|
After jphgolf4321's and MindBender15's elimination, the wheel was spun again and landed on black. It was revealed that it was The Amazing Race. The wheel was spun during the first session but the game was not played until the second session on January 23, 2016. The Amazing Race is an American reality game show in which typically players race around the world. The race is split into legs interspersed with physical and mental challenges, and require players to deduce clues, navigate themselves in foreign areas, interact with locals, perform physical and mental challenges, and travel using minecart, bus, plane, horse, and by foot.
The teams were randomized and it was announced the last team to arrive would be eliminated from Game X.
At the start of the leg, teams were informed they were to make their way to Vermilion and find the building that kekkomatic was standing on at the beginning of episode 44 of The Snapshot, the Lakeview Holdings Vermilion Offices.
Once there, they encountered a Roadblock, asking "Who wants to jump across?". One team member made their way to the top of the tower and complete a set of parkour to an adjacent building to receive the next clue. The clue then instructed teams to travel by plane on a pre-booked flight to Fairfax by Vermilion Gateway Airport and find the BART Stations on the outskirts of Fairfax to receive their next clue.
At Fairfax, teams were instructed to go by bullet train to Alturas and find the Alturas Olympic Stadium to receive their next clue. The clue teams found was another Roadblock, which asked “Who wants to be counted on?”. The team member who did not do the first Roadblock had to do this one. One team member had to search through the stadium’s empty seats for one of three hopper carts to receive their next clue.
The next clue directed teams to Bloomington to find the MRT station. The clue they found there was the Detour: Inside or Outside. In Inside, teams made their way to the Ernest Hiram Lindley Hall and searched the rooms for their next clue. In Outside, teams made their way to Herman B Wells Library and complete the ladder parkour to receive their next clue. Once teams completed the Detour, they were directed to take a helicopter from Bloomington to the Pit Stop, Centennial Park. The last team to arrive was Gopher and autobus22, substituted by Narnia17. They were thus eliminated.
|"Game 6: Survivor"|
After Gopher's and autobus22's elimination, the wheel was spun again and landed on gray. It was revealed that it was Survivor. Survivor is a game show where castaways are split into tribes and must live together as a tribe. The contestants must endure challenges, and must gain the trust of fellow contestants to avoid being eliminated at Tribal Council.
The tribes were the Red Tribe and the Blue Tribe selected by random draw. The teams only had to face a three-part immunity challenge. The losing team faced Tribal Council.
At Tribal Council, the Red Tribe had a tie in voting, and thus Blue Tribe was given the power to eliminate and chose to eliminate KittyCat11231.

|"Game 7: The Mole"|
After KittyCat11231's elimination, the wheel was spun again and landed on pink. It was revealed that it was The Mole. The Mole is a reality competition in which the contestants work as a group to add money to a pot that only one of them will eventually win. Among the contestants is one person who has been designated "the Mole" by the producers and is tasked with sabotaging the group's money-making efforts. At the end of each episode, the contestant who knows the least about the mole, as decided by the results of a quiz, is eliminated from the game. The Mole is exempt from each episode from getting eliminated. The Mole was randomly chosen which was godzilltrain. The person who scored the highest, Baseball02, won the pot. RLcrafters scored the lowest on the quiz and was thus eliminated.
Challenge 1 - Jump On It
In this challenge, each player had to choose a set of colored parkour, and starting with white, the person had to complete their set of parkour before the next person can start their own. If they completed, the challenge, each completed area is $10 toward the pot. All parkour was completed so all the money went to the pot.
Challenge 2 - The Fall Of Your Life
Originally from Season 1, Challenge 1, the contestants were told that the plane had exploded and they had a few minutes to escape. Their challenge began immediately, players had to jump from a plane and land in the correct colored rings to earn diamonds. The group was split into 3 groups, easy, medium, hard, and extreme. The Easy group’s jumps were worth $5, the Medium group’s jumps were worth $10, the Hard group’s jumps were worth $20, the Extreme group’s jumps were worth $50. The team ended up earning $90.
The mole purposely failed a jumps in Challenge 1 to lose time and the mole failed the jump in Challenge 2.

The houseguests are completely isolated from the outside world, and can have no communication with those not in the house. The contestants are competing for a grand prize, with competitions and evictions determining who will win the show.
The contestants, referred to as "houseguests," are sequestered in the Big Brother House with no contact to or from the outside world. Each episode, the houseguests take part in several compulsory challenges that determine who will win luxuries and power in the house.
At the start of each episode, the houseguests compete in the Head of Household (HoH) competition. The winner of the HoH competition will select two houseguests to be nominated for eviction. The winner of the HoH competition is guaranteed an episode of safety and nominates two fellow houseGuests for eviction. There was no veto competition since it was only three contestants left.
In Otev Park, MinecraftYoshi26 had described a player in this season and the contestants had to identify who it was and bring it back to the top of the waterfall. If correct, they were awarded a point, however, there were only two stools to stand on instead of three, like Musical Chairs. The person who gained three points first won Head of Household and thus chose who got to be eliminated. mine_man won Head of Household and chose to eliminate CortesiRaccoon.

He would play a round of Deal or No Deal, which entails opening chests to eliminate which was not in the one he chose, which was pink, The Mole. He refused all offers and won $5,500 from the screen.
