Yeah, it's time for yet another Everything Quest.

Note: Well, turns out there's two Quests going on at the same time. Since Quests are usually only every few months, I take on the task. Well, turns out the esteemed mblase had Everything Quests: Albums and CDs planned and running, I just jumped in and started this one without asking. Ergo, if you have limited time and are torn between the Quests, I'd submit you try mblase's first. Fair is fair, after all, and his was running and planned first.

This quest will be run by Rancid_Pickle. Submit any questions to me, don't bug other folks unless you like getting poked with horrible veggies.

REQUIREMENTS

We need a good listing of your favourite game or fun diversion. Don't write a Quest node on something that was already done in the past (i.e. First Come, First Blessed). Try to create the node on your favourite game, but if there is a node for it but there isn't a decent writeup there, go ahead and add your contribution. Some things that should be included are:

  • Name of the game (duh!)
  • General info on how to play it.
  • Why you like this game. Give copious examples of why. Tell us why we should rush out and buy that game.
  • Information such as the author, when developed, what platform (PC, Playstation, arcade, board, pencil-and-paper, playing card, etc). Historical information is particularly needed.
  • Similar games
  • Genre(s)
  • Did this game influence you in any way, and how?
  • Writeups must be created between the time stamp on this node and 23:59 on 10 April 2002, E2 Server Time.
When your writeup is complete, just drop me a /msg and softlink it to this node. Every decent writeup will get a "blessing" by yours truly (which equates to ten XP), plus the possibility of getting upvoted AND chinged if it's worthy. There is a limit of ten blessings per noder, but you're more than welcome to add more than 10 writeups.

Now comes the nasty part. If you cut and paste, I will CURSE you, which is a -10xp hit. DO NOT CUT AND PASTE. Make your writeup original work. Only nodes created within the Quest time window will be eligible for goodies.

Exceptional works added during this quest may get more than one blessing (actually, up to +30xp for outstanding nodes).

Get to it!


Now quit dawdlin' and git to writin'!



And now, the Wouf Hong! Oops, I mean the Quest Entries!

  26. wertperch says re Everything Quests: Games and Distractions: It might be worth pointing out that there are many games in the The Content Rescue Team : Nodes list, and that they should /msg a CRT leader (possibly me) if they complete one?

  30. cahla says hey there, re: Everything Quests: Games and Distractions, would copying and pasting the rules of the game be considered fair play? i could obviously re-write them, but in the case of an old board game I think it's probably better off more accurate...

  39. dutchess says /dev/joe has done a good job with the kind of logic puzzle I was considering in old chestnut: five men, houses, colors, nationalities, beverages, cigars, and pets. I'll keep thinking.
  40. alfimp says I've just done a write-up of connect four for your quest, since there weren't any decent write-ups for it. Of course whether or not there are now is also questionable...
  41. jpfed says re: Games and Distractions: um, I have a few abstract strategy board games that I made up, that my friends and I play. Would they be appropriate for the quest, or is the quest more centered on games that many people have played?
  42. mblase says Danke. :) I'm gonna have a tough time with your Quest, though -- all the games I used to play are already well-noded.
  43. mkb says re Everything Quests: Games and Distractions: Gotcha! noded and ready for ACTION YEAH

  58. lordaych says my first quest submission, and hopefully not my last -- clickomania!
