The Christmas Game

Start: December 1st

End: December 24th

Sign-up: November 27 to November 30

Short and Simple

As Christmas is closing in, I thought a December Christmas Game would be suitable. The idea is quite simple: From the 1st of December, a number of secret Christmas Gifts are up for grabs! Each gift contains a secret amount of in-game coppers. The goal of the game is to get hold of as many gifts as possible and keep them until the 24th of December, when the contest ends.

So how is this done? Well, each day from December 1st to December 21st (holidays are starting then, so the contest ends there) 1-3 participants (you’ll need to sign up first – see below) are randomly selected. These lucky people get to take a gift from the gift poll. However, there will not be enough gifts to go around, so when all gifts has an owner, the 1-3 lucky participants each day get to “steal” one gift from another participant. Some will go for the most appealing gift, while some will aim to steal from their worst enemies 😉

On the 21st of December gift stealing ends, and anyone who has at least one gift get to keep its secret content. Gifts are unwrapped on December 24.

So in other words, some unlucky participants might not end up with a gift at all, while some lucky bastard might end up with several gifts to keep. Unfair but fun 😀

Sign-up

Signing up for this game/contest will cost you 25 in-game coppers. It is guaranteed that all the coppers gained through entry fees will be used as prizes in the secret gifts.

To sign up, simply send an in-game (TMU) message to “Jozii”. You may leave the message blank or just mention that you are signing up for the TMU Blog Christmas Game. Just remember to include the entry fee of 25 coppers.

Final Words

Donations are welcome! If you do not want to participate, or if you are participating but still want to increase the size of the gifts, feel free to send an in-game message with a donation of as many coppers as you like.

Note: This entire game is based on a new-year tradition from Denmark.

    This game basically requires no time at all 😉 You only need to sign up, and then you’ll have to choose what gift you want to “take” if you are chosen in December, but more on that later.

    To sign up, simply send 25 coppers in-game (through the optional toolbar in the upper right corner) to “Jozii”.
