Day 5 Bonus Activity

The spaceship was out of control and only one person could save them all...but that one person was already dead! He had died when the out of control spaceship had earlier collided with a meteor that was heading right for earth. The only way that the remaining crew could survive was to bail out of the ship and go to the 2 man pod; the only problem was that there were 6 of them left and only 2 spaces in the pod. The agreement prior to the mission was that the "Dad's" had first priority.  Luckily for the crew there was only 1 Dad...Derek, he was guaranteed that he would get back to his family. 

There were 5 other crew members left and they were all single men so the only way to choose who was getting the other slot in the escape pod would be chosen by the most grueling way to choose; the painful, torturous game of Tic Tac Toe. The way the tournament would work would be that there would be a row of papers with the Tic Tac Toe grid set up on it already. At random the order would be chosen...after the draw Johhny starting off facing Matthew, whoever won that round would go on to face Mike and whoever won that round would face Peter, and finally after Peter there would be Joshua...the overall winner would get to go in to the pod. 

The Rounds started off with Johnny beating Matthew to go on and face Mike.  Unfortunately Mike lost to Johnny, so Johnny versed Peter and surprisingly won.  There was only one other person left and that man was Joshua. Everyone was sure that Johnny would win, it came down to the last square and given the distraction of the tension of the game Johhny had accidentally placed his cross in the wrong place. Joshua had earnt himself the last place on the pod. 

Derek and Joshua left in the pod heading safely back to Earth and when they looked back they could see that the space ship was heading right towards Earth now back under what appeared to be control. The two were really relieved that their friends weren't going to die...but what had happened and where were they goin to land?
