Ruby Eyes's Created-While-Distracted-By-Cat Bingo

Signups are OPEN

 

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 (No Trophy, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, "Diamond"). For the purposes of our little game, there are two levels for platinum; anything over 2000 dragons is considered diamond level. Finally, you must post your scroll name (no link required). For an explanation of trophies, how many dragons you have to have for each, and what trophy you have, see this help page: https://dragcave.net/help/egglimits.

 

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; aside from some flash bingos, each will be available for a set amount of time, starting with and stated at time of posting. 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, 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, bingos will be announced in the form of a certain condition (e.g. "CB metallic" or "even-gen tinsel"). 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 proportional to the player's trophy level. 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!
  • If the host has gone inactive/unresponsive in this thread for any reason for at least one month, with no new Bingo round posted, players are free to discuss beginning a new game, with a host to be determined by current players. The original Bingo game may continue if the host returns, but the winner(s) will not be selected to host a new game, although they may still request an egg from the host, if they wish.

 

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 (but not necessarily) 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.
    Not secrets in Ruby Eyes's bingo: https://dragcave.net/group/59444
     
  • 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 or more choices of the same type of dragon. Each successive choice is harder and earns more points. For example, claiming option A earns you one point, while C earns three points. You can 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 usually 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 has 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 that hint at a particular dragon is posted together. 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, if you get it on the 3rd clue it's worth 2 points, 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, it will not count. If you forget to announce a monarch 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, and a bred egg from two of the host's dragons (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 and/or 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

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

 

And that's it! If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post here or PM the host.

The Bingos

 

I'm going to try something new this time.
Any Regular, Tricky or Cascading bingos will NOT expire - they will be valid until the end of this game.

 

Active

 

Tricky Bingo

T0. See website :) (2 pts)

 

Batch 1
Regular Bingo
Pick a letter and stick with it. Hint: Don't pick J or Q ;)
R1. Something whose name starts with that letter.
R2. Something whose code starts with that letter.
R3. Something whose breed name (encyclopedia) starts with that letter.
R4. Something whose name ends with that letter.
R5. Something whose user description starts with that letter.
R6. Something with at least one caveborn ancestor whose name starts with that letter.
   
Tricky Bingo
3 points
T1. Something that matches all of R1 though 6.

 

 

Co-Op Bingo
Co-Op1. Both sides of a coin multi-side currency.
Pick a breed with alternate forms/colours. All of those forms/colours must be on the same Encyclopedia page, so Zyus would count, Xenos would not count.
Form teams of 2 to 6, and each member presents a different form/colour of the same breed AND same gender.
Each team must pick a different breed/gender combo (e.g. team 1 female Nebulas, team 2 male Nebulas).
No two teams may consist of the same people. Gotta mix and match!
2 points per team joined, maximum of 3 teams per player.
A team MAY post all possible forms/colours of its breed, but there's no obligation (e.g. a team of 3 could post just 3 female Zyus, not all 6). This leaves room for late-comers.
   
Batch 2
Regular Bingo
Pick a number and stick with it. Hint: it should be between 2 and 5, including.
Words are separated by spaces, apostrophes, numbers or dashes. That means MyLittlePony would be 1 word, while Need4Feed would be 2 words.
R7. Something with that many letters in its code (everything else would be numbers).
R8. Something with that many words in its name.
R9. Something with an ancestor on your own scroll with that many words in its name.
R10. Something with an ancestor on someone else's scroll with that many words in its name.
R11. Something with that many ancestors.
R12. Something with that many sentences in its user description.
   
Tricky Bingo
3 points each
T2. Something that matches all of R7 though 12.
T3. Something that matches all of R1 though 12. :D :ph34r:

 

Batch 3
Regular Bingo
Pick a breed-only breed and stick with it. (That's hybrids, Geodes, and Avatars, NOT breed-only alts!)
 
R13. An adult individual of that breed.
R14. A frozen individual of that breed.
R15. An adult or frozen individual of that breed with at least 1 ancestor of the same breed.
R16. An adult individual of that breed with at least 1 non-growing child of the same breed.

 

Batch 4
Riddle Bingo
1 point each.
Pop culture references!
Some creatures showed up together, hinting at some odd world outside of Valkemare ... Present one individual from each of the following.
(Please DO NOT PM me your results. Give those without the pop culture knowledge a chance to glean a hint, as this is supposed to be fun, not tedious :))
Ri1. What do the warts of a hog have to do with houses?
Ri2. Might Wardens, calling their boss in times of trouble.
Ri3. Stones of different origins, requiring a finger and an opposable thumb to be used.
Ri4. Monsters to be kept in pockets, may summon another creature when they work together.
Regular Bingo
DC Forum references!
R17. An individual of a breed that is specifically mentioned in the FAQ thread in the Help section.
R18. An individual of a breed that is displayed with little icons in my signature (colour doesn't matter).
R19. An individual of a "special release" breed, as listed in the Special Release Offspring Gifting Group thread.

 

 

Expired

Why do you have tricky bingo listed under expired when you say no regular, tricky, or cascade will expire?

She's misnamed is all - it was the challenge (shown correctly)  that has expired.

I had to edit that post twice because this good-for-nothing editor simply CLEARED the whole post when I first hit save. I guess I mixed up some titles in the second run.

It's easier to copy and modify a fully-formatted line than applying all parts of the formatting button by button - laziness needs more attention span than I currently have, sorry XD

Sorry if I caused you more pain. I figured it was a mistake, but wondered if there was something I had missed.
