I'm up for a poker tournament, and I know I can rope in a few other individuals to play as well.

i have an event idea, that could work with all guilded games.

In short in the first month you have to give your top 5 of the guilds in a specific game.

Then, if you have the first guild right 10 points, second 8 points, third 6 points fourth 4 points fifth 2 points, if you have a top five guild in the wrong spot 1 point.

Then at the end of the game, points get tallied, first 3 winners get specefic turns, in the same turn to start next age. To be taken in the first week of the age.

Having the first five in the right order, or have all five but scrambled could maybe give a special bonus.

[edit]i'd exclude covenant from this game tho, due to the special non reset nature of the game.

And i'd call the game Evernight Roulette or something ;)[/edit]

I got one, a sudoku tournament...

List a bunch of puzzles then first one to solve them all wins prizes.

turns go to top 3-4?
1 - 50 turns
2 - 35 turns
3 - 20 turns
4 - 10 turns

dont know what sudoku is?
http://www.sudoku.com/
Its a numbers puzzle.

Or you could list a bunch, believe there is varrying dificulties... run the event over so many days, get 5 turns per puzzle solved for a total of 5 puzzles listed.

As card games with teams are hard to organize I thought of maybe canasta and run it as player vs player
that way the player with the most wins gets 1st and so on

another idea was Literati, up to 5 can play at a time on yahoo, that is yahoos version of scrabble

Also pool can be a fun game to have a tourney in too. Not sure what all has been suggested yet

And with the playoffs being here maybe something like the score of the superbowl once the teams have been decided

Trivia contests are always fun

Could post part of a lyric and have people have to find what song it was from

Or would work with movie lines too

That is about all that I could think of for now dont know if anyone will like any of those ideas

I just saw Whit's avatar title - can we have a new contest for a "signature" sig line again soon? I love that I'm a pickpocket now, but as you've seen from my previous ethnography, I think custom descriptions are pretty amazingly cool.

I second Gerien's post
I would personally like to win a custom "signature"

Also advertising an event for a custom "signature" might inspire some people to play that contest as well as start more frequently coming to the events forum:)

i got 1 more idea. how bout if we ever do win the mpogd for the month, we change the name to monarchy? then people will see that on the top of the list and say oh shit monarchy is back! and itll be #1 like it used to be! u see people who use to play monarchy probably are playing one of those other games and when they see canon they probably dont even know when it is. i bet when they see canon on top theyll be curious. but still people might not click on the link. i know i personally dont click on the 1st one cuz im too into my little shell. too into this game called canon. but i bet if the game were to read monarchy on the mpogd list it would definately get clicks. yes it was dead but lets bring it back alive! that is the last resort i guess if we dont get enough players joining if and when we get #1. yes i gotta say if cuz i dont know if we're that dedicated. but then i say when cuz this community has surprised me with the big boost we've taken in the rankings! i mean when people see the mpogd list, they wanna see what the game above of looks like. so as of right now we got the 12-100 games thinking damn that game must be better. but hobowars and the rest of the top 10 are like ya are game is the shit. so little do they know that this game is the masked monarchy. they dont know whats coming to them. i bet u we can steal players from everyone we're above thats the way to do it.

How about Sports pick 'em contests.

How it would work is for whatever sport, let's say Football, each week the teams that are playing are listed.

Each person selects the winners of each game, and is awarded 1 point for a correct selection. The Monday night game would be worth 2 points.

On top of this, each person can predict the point differential of the game. If you get the point difference correct, it's 3 bonus points.

Whoever has the most points each week is awarded 10-25 turns or something.

At the end of the season whoever has the most accumulated points recieves 100 bonus turns.

The weekly points would be calculated seperately to determine that week's winner, then the total would be added up. For each week someone remains in the lead they get say 5-10 million cash for a realm.

I would be willing to run it.
