Echo Chamber Game

Two teams, two different realities
  (+1)
(+1)
  [vote for,
against]

The game is played with two large teams - the echoers and the observers. Echoers through a public vote have been chosen to take part in the game, however, without the echoers knowing, they have also been carefully selected to weed out anyone with a scientific background or any ability for logical analysis.

When the game starts, the echoers enter a large building which is then sealed for the remainder of the game, which depending on game level could last anywhere from a week to years.

The observers make predictions about what the outcome for the echoers will be - will they all kill each-otherr ? Will they invent a new reality or new religion ? Or start censoring each other in weird ways like banning the utterance of vowels.

As the game progresses, there is continual television coverage and bets can be made for the most popular predicted outcomes. Will they collectively start believing in a mythical new savior animal ?

The game is timed by a large clock tower on one side of the building.
