Games Master Challenge 2015

Post by Fjorab_Teke » 25 Nov 2015 08:02 am

I'll post updates on this as separate posts to make it easier to follow and to show as new for each day's challenges. If that's not OK, I can consolidate them.

I almost can't believe it. They actually managed to spring a good ol' fashioned Games Master Challenge upon us!

Which side did you choose?

I debated between potential accessories for pets versus color preference. Hot vs. cool. Etc.

But I ultimately chose Fire.


The first day is pretty straightforward with no guessing.

I'll note differences in the challenge below.


Random Challenge -
But There's So Much To Choose From!
Add four qualifying games to your Favourites List. (they do provide a handy link to the games)
Prize: My Favorite Games

Game Challenge -
(TEAM FIRE)
Those Blasted Rocks!
Achieve a score of 60 or higher playing Magma Blaster.
(TEAM SNOW)
Take Cover..
Achieve a score of 45 or higher playing Snow Wars II.
Prize: Snow and Fire Blaster

I picked Snow, because I vaguely recalled preferring Terror Mountain games to anything involving fire, but I doubt it'll matter that much (they'll run out of snow games). I do like Games Challenges for the mass of items they produce, but I hope the ones we get are good.

Day 2:

Game Challenge -
Please Stand Still
Reach a score of 790 or greater playing Wingoball.
Prize: The Ultimate Guide to Placing Garden Gnomes

Game Challenge -
Itchy Bitsy Fleas
Reach a score of 560 or greater playing Itchy Invasion.
Prize: Petpetpet Comb

Send a Score Challenge -
(TEAM FIRE)
Some Like it Hot
Send scores in five different qualifying games from Moltara or Tyrannia.
(TEAM SNOW)
Some Like it Cold

Well, Itchy Invasion already did me in. I haven't gotten a score above 450, and I'm about to throw my computer if I play any more of that game. I don't have a chance at getting any bonuses for completing each day on the day.

Day 3:
So far, these challenges and prizes have apparently been similar or identical for both teams. This one's identical.

Game Challenge -
Got My Head in the Clouds
Reach a score of 450 or greater playing Cloud Raiders and a score of 200 or better playing Extreme Faerie Cloud Racers.
Prize: Cloud Boat (very pretty!)

Game Challenge -
Pterrifying!
Reach a score of 900 or greater playing Pterattack.
Prize: Pteri Spring Toy

Game Challenge -
Shoot!
Reach a score of 35 or greater playing Ultimate Bullseye II.
Prize: Arrow rack


This one was super easy for me, aside from Bullseye, but that wasn't maddening at all with just a few tries.

Prizes are out - interesting that the usual top two tiers of "complete every challenge" and "complete every challenge on release day" don't exist this year. I think there were 24 challenges and the top prize is for completion of 21+ on any day.

Yep, which is fine by me, but I'm sure some people are feeling a little cheated if they worked extra hard to complete the ones that were tricky for them. After all, like you said, the previous ones set the standard for completing it all on each day.
