Guidelines for the 2017 April Fools’ Adventure Game Tournament

Welcome, oh Foolish Ones!
Please take the time to familiarize yourself with these procedures before participating. 

DATES & GENERAL INFO
The tourney will run for 4 weeks beginning on Saturday, April 1 and ending on Sunday, April 30. 

Each week you will have 2 regular puzzles or one multi-part puzzle to solve.  The deadline for your weekly answers will be each Sunday at 11:00PM Greenwich Mean Time, and new puzzles will be posted soon after along with the cumulative scores.

Please submit your answers via PM only.

Do not post any hints nor answers in the threads or you could be disqualified from playing that week.

Use this thread for general discussions throughout the 4 weeks.

PUZZLES
Each puzzle will have its own thread that will be pinned for the week so it doesn’t get lost in the forum’s shuffle.

Since there are many different types of puzzles in the challenge, I will be using a variety of scoring methods.  Please read the directions for each puzzle carefully.  If they aren’t clear to you, let me know via PM.  I will post in this thread if any puzzle corrections or clarifications need to be made, so check it regularly.

When submitting your answers, please put the puzzle name in the subject line.  If you submit answers for both puzzles in the same PM, please label them in the body of your message as well.

Please make sure your answers are complete, especially if the games are part of a series. 

All types of adventure games are fodder for the puzzles, including text adventures, indie and freeware games, kids’ games, and hybrids with some action or RPG elements.
   
PRIZES
The prize for each of the top three scorers will be the player’s choice of a new game. In addition, a consolation prize will be drawn from the names of those not in the top 3 places.  To qualify for this drawing, a player must participate in all 4 weeks of the tourney.  A positive score is not necessary to qualify, but you do have to make the attempt.

     

Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

This week’s cumulative scores are posted above.  So far DarkEye leads the way, but there are still 3 weeks to go. Smile

You have just over 2 and a half hours to get your answers for week 3 to me.  (It’s 4:27 here in NJ and 8:27 Greenwich Mean Time or UTC.)

As we head into the 4th and final week of the tourney, it looks like it’s going to be a close race for the top spot between Chrissie and DarkEye.  I’m anxious to see how it all plays out.  Good luck, everyone!

Please note that if you submitted answers to me on Wednesday or yesterday and haven’t received an answer, they may have been lost while the forum was being changed to the new server.  The PMs seem to be working okay now, so just resubmit them.

After a busy week, I’m getting ready to tackle the final puzzles of this great journey. I’d like to thank Lady K for putting an enormous effort to make this punishment Tongue enjoyment for us busy bees, and now I only wish if we had a few weeks (how about the “2017 Spring Break Tournament” sequel, Lady Kestrel? Smile ) more so I can catch chrissie and DarkEye, and make even more points gap with Karlok. Grin Heart

Congratulation to all players!!!
