That's right! It's back to school time. September.
Everyone have a good summer? A good PAX? A good non-trip to PAX? Good, good.
Well, this month, I have something special planned for you all.
It's in essence, a true scavenger hunt.
August scores are forth coming, from my preliminary guesses and estimations, there certainly were a lot of people participating, and some that failed while others did not, and it was good.
So, a scavenger hunt. How, prey tell does this work?
Well, in essence, we're doing a variation of H-O-R-S-E.
I call it: Anywhere
I'm going to post a challenge that requires you all to post a picture of what I describe you doing. You have until Saturday night to do the task. Do it and you earn 20 points. Don't do it and you earn nothing, you lose nothing. If you do none of these challenges, you are OUT of the game for the rest of the contest. That's right, you have to play to stay this month. You only have to do one to continue on, but if you do none, you're out, no matter how high your score.
Once you get your challenge picture taken, make a cblog out of it, email me a link, and you're done. The first person to link me their cblog gets DIBS on calling the specifics of the next challenge provided they meet da rulez.
What are these rules? Whatever your challenge is it must meet these criteria:
It cannot name a specific location inaccessible to other dtoiders (PIC AT THE STATUE OF LIBERTY!)
It cannot involve a violent, sexually degrading, illicit, or illegal act. (No fires on the tip of your penis)
It cannot involve trespassing. (w00t! Pentagon!)
It must involve something that is considered either a meme on Dtoid, or something related to Xbox. What this is, is up to you, but it must be clearly recognizable and distinct. You are welcome to copy each other's entries if you please, but it must fit within the suggested theme.
I refuse to be held liable for anything that may occur as a result of these challenges. I will not be held accountable if you are raped, stabbed, raped by a stabber, beaten, shot, lynched, castle-crashed, carroted, or anything else while accomplishing a task given by another contestant.
All contestant suggestions must first be performed by the winning contestant, so don't suggest anything you aren't willing to do yourself, pussy. If your suggestion is not submitted within 24 hours of submitting your winning entry to the current round, I will take the next person. I reserve the right to refuse the contest suggestion of a winner if it is deemed inappropriate or offensive.
Here's the Final challenge (as suggested by me):
Week 1 - Necros won!
Week 2 - Lost Crichton won!
Week 3 - Necros won!
Week 4 - Final Week! Turn your Movies into Games!
This weeks challenge is kinda flexible. We've all seen how movies can be turned very easily into VERY shitty games. Well, now we're doing the impossible and taking movies and turning them into excellent games. Or at least game titles. Shoop/MSPaint up some movies from your movie collection into the title of one of your favorite games. Do a few, because dupes from previous submissions don't count. Titles must be spelled out in full, including punctuation. My entry MDK2 flirts with the wrong side of these rules, but I'm the rule maker here, so suck it up.
Feel free to include photos of your sources so we can see where you drew inspiration from.
Post a Cblog about it. Title it: Achieve-a-challenge #3: Week 4
Put whatever you want in there, post the picture, link it to me, and you're done. You get 20 points. First to do it gets dibs on calling the next one.
You have until Sunday at midnight. Anyone not clear on the rules, please email me or use some common sense.
October's challenge will start on Sunday and run until the end of October. read
