Olympic Game Board
How To Play

Welcome to the Summer Olympics Game board! This thread will be up for the duration of the event, and will have frequent additions and subtractions to the categories, so be sure to check in regularly!

Below you will find the Game Categories and their associated prompts. Each team will have the opportunity to make the most of these categories and work together to gain the highest score! The MVP (or highest scoring player) of each team will be granted a special award at the end of the event, so do your best to compete within house as well!

Concerning Prompts

Each prompt will grant each member the opportunity to earn 1 to 3 participation points. These points accumulate toward the Team Total, which can be found on the Scoreboard. While the categories last the entirety of the event, prompts will be removed after a certain amount of people have done them, and prompts can be added at various intervals.

For every 5 prompt points accumulated by a single member, that member will have the opportunity to add a prompt of their own to the list and their team will gain 1 misc point for it! The member can do their own prompt if they wish and gain the associated participation points (assigned by staff) as well!

Concerning Hunts

Not everyone is good at hunts. Some people have slower computers and others have odd timezones, so these are going to be a bit different from our site wide scavenger hunts.

Each team has the opportunity to make a total of 200 hunt points.

100 hunt points can be earned during the Team Hunt, which will be announced in cbox when a fair amount of team members are online. Team Hunts are for the announced team only to gather as many things as possible for their points.The team works as a whole to get what they can. There are no MVP's in the Team Hunt, but everyone on the team gains 2 participation points even if they don't get to play in the Team Hunt when it comes around.

100 hunt points can be earned through Individual Hunts, which will be arranged for each individual team member by staff. The member will have the opportunity to scoot and gain as many points as possible (25 per person) and their total is add to their personal participation points and the Team Hunt total! So good luck with these (and yes, if they wish it, your teamies can help you out!)

Points Claiming

Points claiming is an extremely simple process. All you have to do is post in this thread to claim your points; a staff member will leave a note in your post so that you know it has been added to the scoreboard.

You may claim multiple things in a single post; if you did a headcanon, two starters and three in thread references then simply copy the claims code into your post six times, rather than posting individually for each completed item.

If a staff member has already edited your post, post again!

Claiming Code

Username - link to thread/post/headcanon - point worth

The Grim Squeaker - ALL THE MAEDHROS HEADCANONS NYAHAHAHAHAHA! - Erm. About 27 in total? 24 for the headcanons themselves, and then there's bonus points. There's 13 headcanons there, so I'm assuming there's 4 bonus points there? I dunno, I can't count XD

The Grim Squeaker - Wherein Maedhros climbs his father like a tree and gets a piggyback for his trouble - 2points

The Grim Squeaker - Galadriel's first sunrise - I'm not sure if this one counts because I didn't start it. If it does, then 3 points.

Alright folks! I am going to be delivering the Gem Awards for Yavanna's Fields shortly, and so ya'll know what to expect I'm making a mini post here.

Every person who participated gets one gem. This means every character they participated with is receiving this gem. Cograts!

The winning team are all receiving a second gem. This means all of those characters will be receiving two gems!

All of this should hopefully be uploaded in about an hour depending on how fast I code this xD Meaning when ya'll sign on you'll see new bling shining under your characters names =D Yay!
