Treasure hunt
I came up with this idea for a forum game in another forum and I thought you may like to try it, but I need the admins/mods authorization first...

the idea is this:

We have an account (like a regular member), lets call him Treasure... So, I create this mystery-guy account, the idea, is that you all have to find out the password to access this account, for that, Treasure will answer questions about his password (that would be me)
When somebody find out the password, then that person goes and changes it, and takes my place in answering the questions...

example:
user1: is an animal?
Treasure: yes
user2: it's a mammal?
Treasure: no

*then user1 goes and try to login with the password "frog" and makes it, he "steals" the account"*

Treasure: Now the pass has changed
User2: is an object?
User0 (notice that this will be the one using the "Treasure" account previously): is small?

etcetera...


it could be fun, but we need this account for us to use which is meant to be used only for the game...

so I'm calling all the mods for approval Rolleyes



RULES

game objective: discover the password of the Treasure

1) If you find out the password, you must log in into the account (user name: Treasure) and change the password (type the new password carefully to avoid possible obstacles in the game)

2)Once you have changed the password, you must post some clue or riddle for other users to discover the new password.

3)The riddle may consist in clues to find the word or code in some place on the forums or some external site, or you can invite the other players to ask questions you must answer.

4)If you lead people to other sites, take in count those sites MUST NOT violate any of the forum rules.

5)The "Treasure" account may only post in this thread as it's meant for the game only.

6)Do not abuse of this account.

7)the treasure must post his first clue in not more than 6 hours since he/she discovers it... and can't be more than 24 hours between posts since then... otherwise I'll recover the password to keep the game going...

That could be fun. Big Grin

Could we stipulate that all passwords be all lower case to make sure that someone doesn't guess wrong on account of casing? Does the forum password validation have casing rules?

usually in this other forum the casing was part of the riddle, it may be useful to have caps for names or for some weird combination of numbers and letters. When it was a simple thing, then we used to say it in the first clue, just stating "all lower case, no numbers" but it depends on how we make the game... there was this guy who made a whole eight chapters story, each chapter was a clue for one letter of the word, and he made us go to the most dark corners of the web, just to find out the password was "treasure" so knowing the casing wasn't very important in that case Tongue

well, it was just this guy, I would be careful with HoC though, I've been here a few days and I already know this guy talks only in riddles, I'm sure he would be a worthy adversary :O

RE: Treasure hunt
Since it's in the name of good fun, and there aren't any negative repercussions to it, I'm giving it the ok.

Simple rule, only one of these dummy accounts is allowed to be made. It's name will forever be TREASURE.

If for some reason the person in charge of creating the new password fucks off before revealing the password make a mod or me aware and we shall reset the password and also the game.

Let's keep this to a single thread. If at all possible, to avoid derailments.

Nach, it's up to you to start us off. make it a good one. This place could use some lightening up right about now.
