This game is just like any old other bingo except we use dragons. And don't have a board; instead, we just count whether or not you have the dragon(s). We're just that awesome.

 

Signing up to Play

To sign up, all you have to do is post and let me know that you're in/you're playing/whatever wording you want. State your trophy level, for ease of grouping. Also, if you have a platinum trophy, please also let me know how many dragons you have. For the purposes of our little game, there are two levels for platinum trophies; anything over 2000 dragons is considered diamond level. Finally, you must post your scroll name (no link required).

 

Rules

1. Only players who are signed up may post bingos. Sign-ups will remain open for 48+ hours, depending on the number of players, and will close before the second round begins. You may sign up until sign-ups are closed.

2. There is a 25 dragon minimum to play.

3. As long as a bingo is listed as active, it may be claimed; each will be available for at least 4 hours. Once it is listed as expired, however, it is no longer viable.

4. Dead eggs/hatchlings/dragons do not count as part of the game, unless stated otherwise.

5. Only adult dragons and frozen hatchlings count for bingos, unless stated otherwise.

6. If you move up a trophy level during the game, you don't change your in-game trophy group (if you hit 200 dragons in the middle of the game, you'd still be classified a Bronze).

7. If you do not have a dragon that fits the description merely wait until I announce the next dragon.

8. Editing is allowed to an extent; posts that were edited over 10 minutes after the original time of posting will not be viable for claiming bingos. If in doubt, delete and repost. If I have posted after the post you wish to edit, please just post again, so I can see what you were going to add.

9. May seem silly to list, but hosts may not play the game while they are hosting.

 

Gameplay

At varying times in the day, a bingo will be announced, in the form of a certain condition (examples: a cb metallic, an even gen tinsel etc.). If one of your dragons fits the bingo's condition, you can claim the bingo. You can only claim each bingo once. Every bingo you claim earns you the number of points assigned to it. If you get up to a certain number of points (or higher), you win the game. When the first person reaches the required number of points (or higher) everyone will get an extra 48 hours to get their bingos in before the game ends. The winner will be determined by overall points. In the case of a tie, the host can either: consider the first person who posted a winner, or have a tiebreaker round.

Bingos will come up at varying times and will remain active for a few hours to a few days at a time; multiple people can claim the same bingo (unless stated otherwise) as long as they all meet the necessary condition(s). There may be multiple bingos up for grabs at one time, so do your best not to miss such opportunities!

For an explanation of trophies, how many dragons you have to have for each, and what trophy you have, see this help page: http://dragcave.net/help/egglimits  For the purposes of this game we have added an additional level above platinum. If you have 2000 or more dragons you will be considered to have a diamond level trophy.

 

Different Types of Bingos:

 

Regular Bingos

These will just be labeled as bingos and will be posted by the host in the thread. Anyone playing can claim them. They are up for grabs until the host has posted saying they are expired.

 

Challenge Bingos

These bingos will be labeled as "challenge bingos" and will be posted alongside regular bingos. The conditions required to meet such challenge bingos are more difficult or have more specific requirements than regular bingos (for example, an eighth gen even gen, a fourth gen stairstep, a dragon with more than one spriter's alt in it, a dragon bred on Nov 1st of any year, etc.). Only one person can claim a challenge bingo. The first person to post a dragon that fits the requirements gets the point for that challenge bingo.

 

Secret Bingos

Secret bingos are bingos that are hidden somewhere and will usually be labeled with "secret" and "bingo", or "secret" and the breed name. These bingos can be found in my posts within this thread, my profile, and my scroll. Secret bingos can be put in play at any time and may or may not be announced. They can also only be claimed by one person. The first person to post who has a dragon that fits the requirements will get the secret bingo. These bingos are usually pretty easy, usually easier than or as easy as a regular bingo.

 

Flash Bingos

Flash bingos have at time limit. For example, I might post a bingo at 4:00pm and say that it ends at 8:00pm; only people who post a dragon that fits the requirements before eight will get credit. Flash bingos are posted at various times of the day to give different people the opportunity to claim them.

 

Cascade Bingos

Cascade bingos generally have three choices of the same type of dragon. Each successive choice is harder and earns more points. For example "a" earns one point while "c" earns three points. You claim only one of them.

 

Tricky Bingos

Tricky bingos have a set of instructions that you need to follow to work out which dragon is the bingo. These bingos are generally worth 2 points.

 

Co-op Bingos

These require two or more people to team up and claim the bingo together! They are usually worth 2 or 3 points depending on if 2 or 3 people team up. The points go to everyone on the team.

 

Competitive Bingos

These bingos give a generalized set of conditions, and the person who had the measurably best match (for example, highest or lowest gen) for the bingo at the end of its activity gets the points. If there is a tie, all tying winners get the points.

 

Riddle Bingos

In these bingos, a set of clues is posted together that hint at a particular dragon. Each person who posts the correct dragon gets a point.

 

Ponderous Puzzle Bingos

These are similar to riddle bingos, but the clues are posted one at a time rather than all at once. There will be at least 4 clues. If you get it from the first clue, it's worth 4 points, if you get it on the second clue, it's worth 3 and if you get it on the 3rd clue it's worth 2, and on the last clue it's worth 1. You may guess once per clue but, to prevent copying, you won't find out if you've been right or wrong until the end. Your highest-scoring correct guess will earn you the points, so it behooves you to guess differently each round.

 

Rules to Claiming a Bingo

1. You must announce "Bingo" for each bingo you are claiming. If you do not say "Bingo" for a bingo then it does not count. If you forget to announce a bingo properly, I will remind you and you can fix it so it will count.

2. You may use view, lineage or progeny links for adult dragons. However, if applicable, growing things must have lineage links.

3. Dragons must come from your own scroll only. You can't use dragons from others' scrolls.

4. Your scroll name must be displayed on your dragons' page for this game, so that I can verify you are using a dragon from your own scroll. It would also help to have your scroll link in your signature (especially if your scroll name and forum name are different). Your scroll does not have to be visible, just your scroll name.

5. Dragons that were bred or grabbed the day the bingo was announced or later cannot be used for the bingo. This is to ensure you didn't just breed/grab a dragon to fulfill the bingo.

 

Winning the Game

Congrats! If you win, you will receive a PM from the OP of the thread. The prize for winning is that great feeling of winning, the opportunity to host the next game, as well as picking two dragons from the host's scroll that you would like them to breed for you (and you have to take whatever is bred). If they refuse you can choose a different pair. Note, however, that some dragons may be bonded to specific mates and others may have waiting lists. Some hosts may allow you to choose from rares, some may not.

You may decline the breeding offer, as well as hosting the next game. If you don't want to host the next game, you can post in the thread letting people know it's up for grabs.

 

Some Terminology

CB = Cave Born. A dragon with no parents. Example: http://dragcave.net/lineage/1pc1j

False CB = A dragon whose entire lineage has been wiped out, by death of the parents. Example: http://dragcave.net/lineage/GaRH

PB = Pure Bred. A dragon with only dragons of the same breed in its lineage. Example: https://dragcave.net/lineage/ehKyI

EG = Even Gen. A lineage where all the dragons have two parents of the same generation so it makes a nice triangle shape. Example: https://dragcave.net/lineage/ay01S

Checker = A type of even-gen where all the females are one breed and all the males are a different breed. Example: https://dragcave.net/lineage/PEdUS

Stair/stairstep: A continuing lineage where one gender, excluding the first gender is always cb, creating a stairstep looking shape: https://dragcave.net/lineage/RFR7D

If you have more questions, see the Lineage Terminology thread.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please ask them here or PM the host.

@The Dragoness Welcome! It is always nice to have new players along with the old. :) I just want to make sure of your play level. For the purposes of this game we divide trophies a bit differently than the game does. Platinum starts with 1000 dragons, just as in the Cave, but we have the additional Diamond level for those with 2000 or more dragons. Since you are new to this game I wasn't sure if you had noticed that. Your scroll seems to be hidden, so I couldn't check for myself.

 

@fuzzbucket "Do or do not, there is no TRY!" :lol: Seriously, I will try to allow plenty of time for each round, if time is your issue.

I have 1200 dragons, so I'm at the Platinum level! Sorry about the hidden scroll. If it becomes an issue later on, I can unhide it. Soemone has been adding my dragons to hatcheries :/

I totally understand about the scroll hiding, and it shouldn't be an issue if your scroll name is visible on the dragon's view page. If not, we can talk about ways to get around that later.
