Garnet Match

With a similar gameplay with Main Matches, after every Garnet Match, the player(s) with the highest number of garnets will win the match and the player(s) with the lowest number of garnets will be the elimination candidate. If there is more than 1 player that has the least number of garnets, the winner(s) will select the elimination candidate before the elimination candidate picks his/her opponent. Garnets cannot be transferred between players during Garnet Matches.1

The Main Matches for Episodes 2, 6 and 10 were Garnet Matches.
