So about those achievements... No one has suggested any other ones so far... I'm thinking we can use these to award the prizes and let Damage decide the order which they are ranked?TR BBQ Achievements
(in random order):
Oldest daily operational PC
Longest drive to attend
1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the tourney
Longest time spent traveling to attend
Most forum posts
Highest number of hours playing in single Steam game
Number of BBQs attended
Earliest forum join date
Highest Ghz overclock
First person to sink 4 bean bags in a row (or failing that, 3 or 2)
Largest number of games in Steam library
Furthest distance traveled to attend
Highest number of total hours playing Steam games (I like the idea of rewarding this person for actually bothering to attend
Maybe? I don't know, help me out here...
I think too many of these don't have enough randomness, or enough to do with the BBQ itself.
I'd remove the following, personally, and replace them with something else.*Highest number of total hours playing Steam games
*Largest number of games in Steam library
*Highest Ghz overclock
*Highest number of hours playing in single Steam game
*Oldest daily operational PC
More specific to the BBQ would be stuff like:
*Biggest margin of victory in any one match during the tourney.
*Maybe put a prize in escrow for the winner of the TR BBQ FF league.
*For those who go on the raft, have them push each other off and the winner is the last one on, although that may be a bit too violent.
I think the following three should be combined:*Longest drive to attend
*Longest time spent traveling to attend
*Furthest distance traveled to attend
Furthest distance traveled to attend should be the winner.
We need more randomness, as well as chances for people to win that show up and don't do a lot of the above like PC gaming, and PC building.
I have some ideas, but don't want to spoil them; drfish, we gotta discuss them privately
Also, as far as supplies go, anyone coming earlier in the morning can probably grab the stuff that doesn't spoil or melt.
Those of us coming a later, like 11am or noon
in my case, can grab a second round of ice, water, anything we forgot or need last minute, etc..., and if we have anyone planning to get there between 3-5PM
, maybe the can check in as well and pick up what ever we needing at that time.
Again drfish, I'll be checking in with you while on the road, and grab those last minute items, like more ice, veggie tray, etc...
