Barney's diplomatic immunity
From the Colonel's Regiment
The rules of Barney's diplomatic immunity round are quite simple. At the start, it is determined whether diplomatic immunity will fall to anyone in the first place. This may be influenced by Glogg's round. Assuming Glogg has no effect on Barney, the odds of someone obtaining diplomatic immunity are 1/2. If Glogg helps Barney, diplomatic immunity automatically happens. If he bums him, the odds are reduced to 1/3.
Should someone obtain diplomatic immunity, they are given automatic passage through Kurt's veto round (no one is allowed to veto their destination, or, if they do, it will be discounted).
Diplomatic Immunity can, at best, get you passage through to the last 4. So, assuming there are 9 destinations in the hat (the most likely scenario assuming no shafting, grossering or helping), each time an elimination happens, it is determined whether diplomatic immunity is revoked. The person who has diplomatic immunity must hold up their tile before every elimination and say, "Diplomatic Immunity" in a South African accent. Should they fail to do this, it is automatically revoked. The person playing the role of Barney must then draw a tile out of the bag. With 9 destinations (including the immune destination), the first immunity draw will contain 5 blank tiles and the tile which says "revoked". If the "revoked" tile is removed, the person playing Barney must rotate his head in a circular format (in the style of Danny Glover) and say, "It's just been revoked". The immune destination will be placed back in the hat. If the tile is blank, the blank tile is removed, we return to the actual draw and eliminate a destination. We then proceed to the next Diplomatic immunity round and go through the whole procedure again. This will carry on until "revoked" is drawn out or it is the only tile left in the bag. At this point, the immune destination will be automatically returned to the hat (with the two destinations that are left standing).
