The Really Loaded “Results and Upcoming Things” Page

If you’re reading this post and you have contender points, you are hereby allowed to submit ideas for the Beau vs. kg2005 Championship match. In a day or two I’ll take all suggestions and put them to you for a vote. The match will happen around the 20th or so, if that ends up being workable for all parties.

Bullseye has ended! Grey was the last man standing, but MelissaD was easily the highest scorer of the event.

However, todahshy scored big too, and had enough points racked up that he will be the October challenger for the World Championship.

The Kickstarter for Fall, Caesar is going very, very well. We’re pledged up to $1826 of the $2000 goal. It’s juuuuust fine if we go over, so don’t let the budget dissuade you. Costs for shipping may be higher than anticipated, as I have several backers outside the US. I didn’t see that coming for some reason. Also, there’s still time to have yourself drawn into the game if you pledge $100. Three spots left!

Have you seen uberminz’s second Bi-Curiosities challenge? You should. Scroll down and find it.

greekhouse’s second challenge will come soon, but I don’t want to overwhelm people with content. Now that the mega-game is over, I expect it to hit the front page shortly.

The four-way Grave Robbers challenge should commence soon and I’ll ask those guys for availability within the next week. AMR still has to do his half of Scattergories, as uberminz has been waiting a hella long time.

Spookymilk Survivor over at the other site has been a mind-blowingly good game. You’re probably already following it, but if not, start.

Bullseye: How it Works

Here’s the spreadsheet for Bullseye.

This is the deal: You’ll be emailing me to let you know where you want to begin, which will be on the outer wall. If there are duplicates, then someone will (at random) be placed as close to that spot as possible.

When you’re asked to move – on Tuesday, 9/3 – you can move three spots (give me the coordinates) and you’ll get contender points equal to the number that you step on. If you and someone else move to the same spot on the same move (that is, your second move of three on the day, or whatever), you will be stopped on the move before. If you manage to walk into a spot after it’s been walked on, you’ll fall into a pit and be out of the game. The same applies if you walk into one of the blacked out spots I’ve created, which isn’t likely unless you totally screw up.

You can also move fewer than three times or abstain completely. You’ll figure out why as I put forth the rules.

Each person will also have these single-use powers that will be sent with moves:

Trap. You can turn any spot into a black hole where people can fall. This will be placed before anyone moves on that turn. You cannot place a trap on a space already occupied, and you cannot place one on one of the two 25-point bullseyes. You also cannot play one on the first turn of the game. When the game gets down to five players, anyone who doesn’t have one anymore will be given another.

Lose a Turn. Play this on someone and he will be unable to move. Anything he intended that turn (including powers) will be wiped away. Cannot be used on the first turn of the game.

Switch. Play this to switch with any player. Moves will happen before the switch. If you switch to a player who’s just fallen in a hole, tough shit (but great news for them). Points will only be gained for the spots you step on, not the spot the opponent steps on before the switch.

Order of stuff will be:
LOSE A TURN
TRAP
MOVES
SWITCH

Nobody can get fewer than five points for this game, so if you manage fewer, you’ll get five.

If the game reaches two people, both will be given a trap on every single turn. When the game reaches one player, the remaining player will automatically take five steps for the highest point total possible to end the game.

Diagonal moves are allowed.

I’m not accepting opening spots yet, but I will be before long. I’ll let you know. If you have any questions on how this runs, now’s the time.
