We'll be trying a little DD game over the next few days called the Dungeon of the Day Scoring Challenge. If it's successful, this might become a regular "play-by-forum" activity around here. Any players are welcome to participate, regardless of whether you're a veteran or beginner. Even if you're new to Desktop Dungeons and can only manage one or two medals, feel free to post your experiences here. The rules are as follows:
At 8:00 PM Pacific time (4:00 AM GMT, about 4 hours 40 minutes from now), I will roll a 12-sided die in order to select a dungeon at random from the following list of directional dungeons:
Rock Garden (1), Creeplight Ruins (2), Hexx Ruins (3), Havensdale Bridge (4), Cursed Oasis (5), Berserker Camp (6), Slime Pit (7), Magma Mines (8), Shifting Passages (9), Hard Halls of Steel (10), Ick Swamp (11), or Labyrinth (12)
I will immediately post my roll, which will open the competition. Any DD player can then submit a screenshot showing a successful run. You can use any race or class you want; so long as you win the dungeon run it's eligible for the contest. Points are awarded based on which medals you win, based on the scoring below:
Warmonger and Hoarder = 5 points each
Purist = 4 points
Faithless, Unstoppable, Parched and Miser = 3 points each
Ding! Max = 2 points
Specialist and Cheeky = 1 point each
Tie scores will be resolved by how long it took you to beat the dungeon, with the faster time winning.
The contest ends once the devs release their Friday update (so we don't run across more than one game version), and the highest-scoring user at the time is declared the winner. If the devs skip the Friday update for whatever reason, the contest will close instead at 8:00 PM Pacific time, 48 hours after it began. Users may submit as many entries as they like, but only the highest-scoring will be counted.
