in archdruidcontest •  last year 

The prize pool for this one is 44 Steem. Will those who enter find this contest the most challenging one we have had to date? This contest is open to everyone. We encourage the most hardcore gamers among you to even the causal to join in and have some fun! Tell us about challenging gaming moments.



Some games are known to be very challenging while other times we find something in particular challenging within them. Overcoming such challenges can be quite a defining moment for a gamer. Tell us about them. This could be playing in hardcore mode where the slightest mistake and your character gets killed resulting in starting over from scratch. A very challenging riddles or puzzles and how you solved it and your approach to such a thing. That encounter that you spent forever learning how to do everything perfectly on so you could get the win. The challenges you overcame to acquire a high rank or score in a game and so much more. Tell us about challenging gaming moments.

This is about gaming in general and it could include: card games, board games, puzzle games, and video games. It could focus on you in general as a gamer or be more selective towards guilds, gaming development, game mechanics, lore and so much more that you have found to be challenging gaming moments. These are just a couple of examples so don’t feel limited to just these when sharing with us. We look forward to reading your entries!

As of 9 mins ago the contest has ended.

A very good prize fund for this one. I wonder if any of my followers would like to have a go...

Thanks for the resteem. We always welcome more. I try and set them so anyone who has played some kind of game even in the past should have something to write about.

People get really creative as well and its not always videogames. Which is always amazing as well to read about other types of games.

I'm sure most people have something to write about with regards to some type of game, I would probably write about Megalo Mania or Populous 2 on the Amiga. But unsure if I could produce a posts worth.

sounds fun, good luck all

I'm hoping this topic is a fun one for many. Should be some great tales!

Wohoo!!! Let's get on with this!

Indeed I can't wait to see what people create this time around!

Already got a basic sketch of what it'll look like! O¿m really excited about this one!
