Week 7 - Shuntbumps

Post by Prof. Arielle Lemoyne » Sun Oct 11, 2015 12:47 am

Team seeking is still going on, but we're also getting ready for our week 7 event - Shuntbumps! In Shuntbumps, players fly around trying to knock everyone else off their broomsticks. The last one still mounted on their broom was the winner! Good news - Shuntbumps is not inherently dangerous. Bad news - since the objective is to knock everyone out, even if WE aren't trying to kill you with rocks or fire, you'll be trying to destroy each other. But you only have yourselves to blame if you don't play nicely.

For our irc version, we'll be playing Horse, another game in which you have to try to knock other players out of the game. In this case, you just have to focus on not being the last one to answer the question! For each question, you'll have to p2p your answer to the bot, and the last person to submit a correct answer gets a letter. Once you spell out HORSE, you're out. The last person left is the winner! If this sounds confusing, don't worry, there will be lots of explanation and help when we play!

If you need any help getting on IRC, feel free to send Arielle or Mattie a message and we'd be happy to help you get you started!

As with last week, all participants will receive beans from this week's sponsors. If you're interested in sponsoring this week, please send a message to Arielle and/or Mattie, letting us know the name you would like to donate in and the number of beans you want to contribute for the week!

The dates for Shuntbumps are:

1. Saturday October 17 at 2 am HOL time / Friday October 16 at 9 pm EST
2. Saturday October 17 at 9 pm HOL time / Saturday October 17 at 4 pm EST

If you are interested in playing, sign up below! Please include whether you expect to come for Match 1, Match 2, or both!

Shuntbumps might be the Quidditch based game I'm absolutely worst at!

But I expect to make the second timeslot.

Shuntbumps is now over - you can stop trying to knock each other out of the sky. For now, anyway. <.<

Congratulations to our Shuntbumps participants - Kaiwa Alexandra, Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis, Prof. Tarma Amelia Black, Ivelisse Ada, Allyson Celestra, Prof. Cody Lewis, Ashley Margaret, Will Lestrange, Darcey Goode, and Joey Stark!

Thanks to our fantastic sponsors, each of these players has received 350 beans!

For both matches, we had multiple rounds - where players either spelled out HORSE or PIG before being knocked out. We had to switch to a shorter word, because our players were so impressive! The winners for each of these rounds were:

2 am Match
Round 1: Scarlet
Round 2: Cody

9 pm Match
Round 1: Ashley
Round 2: Will
Round 3: Darcey
Round 4: Darcey

Our sponsors for this week were:

Maxwell Shadow
Sir Ulrich von Liechtenstein of Gelderland - Prof. Cody Lewis
The Scarlet Knights - Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis
Puddlemere United, the Holyhead Harpies, and Za'Lord's Guard - Pizza or Death! - Prof. Tarma Amelia Black

By random number generator, the winner of the sponsorship drawing for week 7 is... Prof. Cody Lewis!

Hope to see you all back next week for Quodpot!
