Odyssey Day!

It's a week of fun, games, and healthy competition! Welcome to the ToO's first-ever Spirit Week, "a game of knowledge and skill"! \:D/

Odyssey Day!

Postby LizzieG » Wed Aug 19, 2009 1:39 am

Wednesday is ODYSSEY DAY! \:D/

626 posts and counting in only two days! :shock:

Yesterday's Scattergories game took me only an hour or so to grade ( ;) ), and the winning team brought in an epic total of 157 points (see below to find out who that team was)! Some of you have wondered who the first team to change their name was. That would be The Rath of the Israelites, followed quickly by Peanut Butter Lollipops and Rainbow Unicorns! \:D/

As far as the word search is concerned, the hidden words were as follows: Climb, Computer, Convention, Friends, Hike, Intern, Read, Running, Travel, and Fred. :inlove: No, actually that last word was Write. ;) Kudos to everyone who found a word, and especially to those who went above and beyond and found multiple words!

Here are today's challenges (today-specific stuff is in blue). Both the group and individual challenges are due TODAY, at 11:59 PM, EDT (via PM to me :)).

WEEK-LONG GROUP CHALLENGE

I will continue to remind you about the group challenge until you're blue in the face! \:D/ This will take the place of Put Your Heads Together on Friday, so you will have time to work on it without being preoccupied with another long list or something. ;) Again, we're looking for something that best shows the spirit of the ToO, and does so creatively! Shop items - complete with a short description, long description, and small image - will be due Friday, at 11:59 PM, EDT.

PUT YOUR HEADS TOGETHER!

Decipher the hidden meaning behind each of the following riddles and figure out what their common denominator is! If you get stumped, keep an eye on this thread - I just might give out a clue or two. :D


Riddle #1:
Let’s go back to the beginning
Take a look, a thought, a moment
Before the next adventure.


Riddle #2:
Even Dale would be surprised
By how many people emphasized
Affection in black and white.


Riddle #3:
The knight in shining carabiners
Descends from his lofty perch
With truth and wisdom in his voice.


STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD!

For today's individual challenge, go post something meaningful in the Whit's End forum, then PM me the link to your post! You don't have to start a new thread or write a long paragraph or something; any non-spammish post that contributes to discussion will do. :)

AVATAR DRESS UP DAY - ODYSSEY DAY!

Simply change your avatar to your group's theme, and follow the instructions in your faction for getting credit. The team(s) with the highest number of avatar-changers will get today's "avatar points."

  • Peanut Butter Lollipops!: Odyssey characters
  • Team Connie: Odyssey album art

All of the factions will be made visible after Spirit Week is over and archived - then you'll be able to see everyone else's lists. :D

And yes, the way we set up the points' system, the fourth place winner for the group challenges doesn't get any points.

You should've seen the incredibly weird theory I came up with. ;)
So you lost your trust,
And you never should have.
No, you never should have.
But don't break your back
If you ever see this,
But don't answer that.
In a bullet proof vest
With the windows all closed,
I'll be doing my best
I'll see you soon.

There is no way I would have gotten 'Q&A with Nathan Hoobler' out of that last one. :noway:

Good job, teams! \:D/

Knowing that Nathan Hoobler is a rock climber is an essential fact. If you've seen his autobio on AIOHQ, you will never forget it. Who else has a climbing wall in the living room? ;)
