Guess the Screenshot Game :gigi1:
._. Week #701: 15th July - 22nd July)

Last week's results (Week #700)

Mytly..............................................16 1/4
Ryan..............................................14 3/4
Sylwia.............................................7
Teone.........................................3

How to Play the Game:
(rjb's rules, modified)

From each Sunday morning (European time), to test our memory and knowledge of the custom levels, screenshots from various levels will be posted (one at a time) on the page(s) that follow. The challenge for the rest of us is to guess from which level each screenshot is taken.

The first person posting the correct answer gains a point * (see below for exceptions / modifications) and then has the opportunity to post the next screenshot. (Can I please make the request that a screenshot not be so large that we need to scroll across the screen to see it all.)

Screenshots will continue to be posted during the week and the player(s) who have the greatest number of correct guesses by 12am/12:00 "trle.net time" (in Germany [GMT+1] - that's 11:00 UK time [= GMT]) on Saturday will become the "Keen Eye of the Week", and they will have this special title attached to their member names until (and including) the next Sunday, upto 12:00 "trle.net time".

The count is then reset for the new week, when we start from scratch - and the game resumes.

Each screenshot is open to everyone except the builder of the game in question and, obviously, the person who submitted the screenshot. Note: If someone [player A] posts a screenshot on behalf of someone else [player B], because they cannot do so themselves for some reason, then player B is not allowed to guess that screenshot, either.

Where the screenshot comes from a multi-levels game, the game and the specific level must both be specified. (nb. This requirement will almost always be waived in the case of games with only 2 levels.)

Clues/hints will be given if folks don't seem to be progressing so well, so if any poster of a screenshot will not be able to monitor people's guesses themselves, could they please PM the answer to Soul.

The Spike Challenge (named after the originator). This challenge will be issued to any player who has consistently shown themselves to be 'so good' at the game that they might still be able to win first place even if all their scores are halved (which is what will happen for anyone who accepts the challenge).

* Fine print subtleties (or do we mean complexities?) about the 'Half-point rule':

(1) If 2 players guess correctly within a minute of each other, the second will (also) gain half a point.
(2) If one player gives most of the correct information, only for another to give the rest of it (eg, a missing level name/number), then it is likely that the first player will be awarded ¾ of a point and the second ¼ of a point.
(3) On several occasions people have been unable to post a screenshot after having 'won' the previous point. For every screenshot someone adds on behalf of others, ½ a point will be awarded to 'reward' them.
(4) New rule: If a screenshot has been present on the thread and no part of it has been guessed correctly for 24 hours, while at least 8 `reasonable` hints have been given during that time, then the poster of that screenshot shall be awarded half a point - this will be known as a `Mugs half-point` after our moderator Mugs, who suggested this idea. A new screenshot will then be posted (this can be by anyone, including our sometimes anonymous friend, A.N.Other). This means that there will be 2 screenshots `on the go`, which will continue to be the case until both are guessed, or we finish the week




Week #700 (7th July - 14th July)

Hi Ryan. 8) For the scores, if you run your mouse over the very last line of the very first post, above :idea:, to the right of the bit you can see, there are several `hidden` fractions there. And you can use those to add those fractions to the scores, if they're needed, by copying and pasting. (Something I remember from aeons ago - well, at least 9 years ago :rolleyes2:).

And congratulations :yay: :jump2: :ponpon: :ponpon: :jump2: :yay: to all you current players for reaching the 701st edition :2thumbsup:.

Ah, cheers Robin. I faintly remember Soul sending me a message about this a long time ago, but I must have forgotten. :blush:

The Search by Dutchy

Wow, the game hasn't moved at all in nearly 2 days?! How come no one else is playing? I have been sick, so I haven't been playing either. :(
