You will select about half of the season's players to be on your tribe. Each episode, your players will earn points in categories like Challenges, Strategy, and Storytelling. The tribe that earns the most points over the course of the season wins. The point categories and values might vary across leagues, and in some cases leagues might have additional rules. Navigate to a league's page to read about its structure.
Throwback leagues work like Standard leagues, but are run for seasons that have already aired in full. The result of the season will be known to the participants, but it is still fun to draft your tribe of players that you think will earn the most points according to their actions during the season. Throwback leagues are often run during the Survivor offseason.
