Who: The Gamer Girlz (and Uri)
• Saja Zeid Kilani - co-creator - is a super nervous player. She is known for her straight As and straight attendances. The virus has ruined her streak and she is even more worried that it might also come in between her longing dream of convocation
- Uri Livne-Bar - co-creator - hosts game competitions to make friends turn into bitter rivals. Outside of streaming he can be found in his bunker assembling smoked meat sandwiches and waiting.
- Tuhi Sen - co-creator - is temporarily coming out of hibernation specifically for this showdown. Her deep slumber has, perhaps paradoxically, taught her a lot about survival strategy.
- Erin Whyland - co-creator - is a defensive player. Known for going after her competitors with gusto she has earned the name Carole Baskin within her gaming community.
Each project is 20-30 minutes long.
