Event list/suggestions
« on: February 29, 2016, 10:14:10 PM »
Please suggest events! Especially suggest ones you would be willing to take part in. I feel we should have about 50/50 competitive VS judged, ideally. Aim should be a longform/rough list at this stage which we'll whittle down. I've also posed questions about some things which answers to would be good. Even if you already see an event, please say if you might consider competing in it so we don't list too many things that could end up as one-competitor flops.

Competitive
RTW 10,000 - what other TW events? Doubles RTW? Should we have anything from the more modern games?
Any M&B Warband?
Chess
Scrabble
Catan? Carcassonne?

Judged
Screenshots - if so what sorts?
Poetry - any other writing?
Sculpting? Mini Painting? Art? How should we split these?
Slam poetry and storytelling - maybe 2 or 3 events here, not sure

The 2012 event list for comparison:

The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

I'd maybe be down for chess or Catan. I am also down for competitive Cards Against Humanity, but that's a less serious suggestion ;)


As for writing, maybe flash fiction (generally accepted as 1000 words, can be even more constrained) around a theme?

Flash fiction is a good call, though I want a ban on old fashioned fonts in publicity material to make sure nobody can read the F as an S. That would go badly. :P

Any other thoughts? 0AD maybe so there's an RTS in the mix? Are there any of our own games/projects that would be suitable? Is there any modding/gamedev we can add?

Could do, I feel like it might be a bit of a big event to throw at people but we may as well see if there's interest :)
