Games Master Challenge 2019 Fan Edition

Thu Nov 28, 2019 8:17 pm

It's American Thanksgiving, which means it's time for the Games Master Challenge!

AAA may be taking this year off, but that doesn't mean we have to!

To make this fun but keep it reasonable, I think we should each propose a challenge in three of our favorite games. You can either state it simply or make some clues! I'll post mine in the next post.

Propose your challenges by Sunday December 1, 11:59pm NST.
Finish all challenges by Sunday December 16, 11:59pm NST.

Current Challenges
1) True to Roo or Toodaloo (Siniri)

Here is the Challenge Summary:

Siniri Challenge 1: True to Roo or Toodaloo
You dream of managing riches galore,
But those Neopoints just walk out your door,
You can prove yourself worthy to King Roo
With nine-fifty plus, or else you'll boohoo.

Siniri Challenge 2: It's a Mad, Mad Game!
You'll be rushin' to place fruits and to spin
to get 1200 750 in a game of Russian origin.

Siniri 3: Do I have to spell it out for you?
You've got to do these things in order
(just ask the Red Erisim).
Keep an eye on the lower border;
a green one reaching it will be grim.
Protect the library from being cursed
with a 400k (nothing worse).



Pickles Challenge 1: Easy Peasy Oh So Breezy
Thanksgiving is fun,
Here's an easy one:
Whack when the wind's high
To soar through the sky!
Score required: 1000

Pickles Challenge 2: A Case of the Munchies
Munch munch munch munch
It's time for leftover lunch!
Don't overmunch on and on
Or you'll need some bloat-b-gone!
Score Required: 2500

Pickles Challenge 3: It's a two-fer to complete...
3a: A Game We Loathe
This game, it stinks like jelly
Layers and layers of smelly jelly
Clear them away before it's too late
Or you'll be stuck playing a game we all hate!
Score Required: 100

3b: This game doesn't exist
This guy loves jelly
He gets quite a belly!
Dodge that that's big
And dance a jig!
Score required: 130



Blue Challenge 1: Grundos Rock, Sloth to Block
Sling that rock, Sloth's efforts block!
Miss not with your slingshot
Hit him s'more to save Kreludor
Get Ten K to make your day

Blue Challenge 2: Just Roll With It
If a Turmac eats a lot, it can grow up to be big and strong
If you do not crash, your score will come along
Because I am not evil and the snow can be drifty
You'll need a score of 350.

Blue Challenge 3: Nummy Neggs
This one is based on a game called Snake
Eating Neggs with a tail you can't shake
Watch out for the red
Or else you'll be dead
A score of Five Hundred you must make



Daze Challenge 1: Top of the pops!
Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
A score of 950 will need expert timing

Daze Challenge 2: It's a bugs life
Now you've heard of folks with a lot of ambition
But I believe just about the biggest case of ambition I ever saw
Was in a bug that I saw crawlin' along the garden one day
He was a mighty smug bug, you will need 550 just to draw

Daze Challenge 3: Winging it
I want to tell you a story
About a little man, If I can
A gnome named Grimble Crumble
Oh forget that. Just play, 1000 is the plan.

Hm. 950 might be tough. And I need to get a mouse hooked up to this computer.

Sounds Fun, Siniri! Thanks for setting up the challenge.

Roo...
Your High Score :200

950 may be impossible. Then again, I may have only played this once...

I think you guys might be looking at the wrong game? Blue's score is literally the minimum score you could get for this game (besides zero). And Pickles's is likewise pretty low. Technically, this is a game that you could use outside aid for without "cheating" (according to Neopets' rules). A mouse definitely helps, though (I would even say it's required)!

It's definitely been a challenge game before (not sure if BTY or AAA), because my overall hs is 1169, due to the required score mandating using the outside aid (I did manage over 1100 without aid once, and I can usually get over 900 without too much effort, as long as I focus and don't multitask).

Technically the max score is 1300. 950 requires you complete the game in just under 6 minutes.

Edit: I just got 1000 in challenge 1! I don't know when I'll have time to post more challenges, but 1/1 complete!

Re: Games Master Challenge 2019 Fan Edition

Sat Nov 30, 2019 5:13 pm

This Month: 980

Whew. Challenge complete! Got lucky with a good start and some good guesses. I did NOT want to do the outside aid way, so I just kept trying for a good start and some good guesses.

Here's my first one:

Easy Peasy Oh So Breezy
Thanksgiving is fun,
Here's an easy one:
Whack when the wind's high
To soar through the sky!

Score required: 1000
Your High Score: 1,177


P.S. Completed immediately afterwards with a 1173. Will try to come up with more later!

I am still struggling with this one, so I went with the "outside assistance". More frustrating appears that even when the solution is entered and double checked,the game does not end... Twice. Hmm. it might be my browser, perhaps. I'll try again with another browser.

ETA. Two browsers down and the game does not end with a finished proper solution. Grrrr :x

ETA2 - Internet Explorer 11 finally worked. Full disclosure, I used the outside help and did not bother to make it look good.

... on to challenge 2 :)

ETA3 - W-A-K is still a favorite, but I seem to have lost my touch for the best of my scores.

ETA4 -
Looks like it is my turn

Grundos Rock, Sloth to Block
Sling that rock, Sloth's efforts block!
Miss not with your slingshot
Hit him s'more to save Kreludor
Get Ten K to make your day


ETA 5 (last one ;))

Got lucky on my first game for Blue's first challenge! Usually I have trouble getting over 10k, because at some point the game started being buggy for me and is waaaaay shorter than it used to be back when it was first opened.

This Month: 12,157

Re: Games Master Challenge 2019 Fan Edition

Sat Nov 30, 2019 9:39 pm

912 in Easy Peasy Oh So Breezy (completely misnamed, btw...)
Will have to try again tomorrow. I'm lucky if I can get more than 3 bounces. The keyboard method has never worked for me, and the precision required with my non-dominant hand is a little tough with the mouse.

11206 in Grundos Rock, Sloth to Block

So that's 2/3 down. Yay!

Sorry you had so much trouble with mine, Blue. That must have been frustrating. I'll post another challenge after my hike. And I'll try to edit them all into the first post with a progress update. (Or feel free to keep track of your own progress in your first post here... And we should nudge Daze if she's around, because she may not see this...)

Okay, here's my other two challenges. I didn't actually use most of my actual "favorite" games, because IIRC, y'all hate most of them. ;)

Pickles Challenge 2:

A Case of the Munchies
Munch munch munch munch
It's time for leftover lunch!
Don't overmunch on and on
Or you'll need some bloat-b-gone!

Score Required: 2500
Your High Score: 8,484


Pickles Challenge 3:
Complete both games to beat this challenge!

A Game We Loathe
This game, it stinks like jelly
Layers and layers of smelly jelly
Clear them away before it's too late
Or you'll be stuck playing a game we all hate!

Score Required: 100
Your High Score 2,153
...I added this game because I had the ability to do so with a ridiculously low score and that actually makes it kinda fun. :p

this game doesn't exist
This guy loves jelly
He gets quite a belly!
Dodge that that's big
And dance a jig!

Score required: 130
Your High Score: 2,611


ETA:
Pickles Challenge 2:
This Month: 4,546

Pickles Challenge 3:

Not my best, but good 'nuff ;)


Now for the next two...

Re: Games Master Challenge 2019 Fan Edition

Sun Dec 01, 2019 2:29 am

Thanks, Pickle, for not using HHH! I skipped Moon Rock Rampage and Let It Slide for the same reason.

Here's my second challenge:

It's a Mad, Mad Game!
You'll be rushin' to place fruits and to spin
to get 750 in a game of Russian origin.

I got a 1629 for the challenge, but my monthly hs is the same as my overall hs: 2250

Pickles Challenge 2: 3306 Whee!
Pickles Challenge 3: Game 1. Huh. I found the wrong game, I think, because your hs in the game I found is only 1801. Oh, wait, nm. I can only see your monthly hs, not your overall hs. Good to know. I actually like this game, I just don't like playing it beyond the first few levels. Yay for a low score!
Game 1: 279

And now to game 2... (but posting now, will edit in score so I you can see my challenge).

Edit: Sorry, you have no friends with Top Scores for this game!
Oh, right! He doesn't eat the jelly in this game. Huh. My first guess was probably right. I don't know why I thought it wasn't. I was actually going to do a challenge in it, because I like it! :lol: Now I can!

Edit: Game 2: 1355

So I've completed Siniri 1 and 2, Pickles 2 and 3, and Blue 1

That's how I feel about it. No 2k score for us! :)


Eeeesh Siniri 2 might be tricky.

This Month: 1,136
That was my third attempt. I'm not the best at that game. Good thing we have time to get them. ;) For me, that one takes a lot of luck to get good scores. I mean, I've gotten over 1500, but that was some time ago.

....yay for a challenge! ;)

I've completed: Siniri 1, Pickles 1, 2, 3, and Blue 1

ETA: Woot! New all-time high score for me!
This Month: 1,603


I've completed: Siniri 1, 2, Pickles 1, 2, 3, and Blue 1


...I should have been in bed an hour ago. Ah well. This was fun!

Re: Games Master Challenge 2019 Fan Edition

Sun Dec 01, 2019 6:47 am

Yes, agreed on the fun!

Pickles 3.1, "This Month: 613"
Pickles 3.2... good thing the challenge score was low... "This Month: 210"

Now to Siniri's next (and set up my second!)
