The games are finished! It was a lot of hard work (some of which wasn't completed in time) and a long endeavor to construct and program all of this. We were a little afraid our joke of "the most effort to the least turnout event" would be true, but thankfully, this year had the biggest Minecraft turnout yet, with up to 11 people playing concurrently, and 13 people participating in total barring the hosts. This was probably due to the fact that everyone who showed up has played on the server previously in New Princeton.

Another advantage from this, unrelated to attendance, is that the games will continue to be hosted 24/7. If anyone ever feels like it, they can call everyone with Minecraft to come back to play a game of KOTH or Spleef or whatever. We may also be planning to host another set of games during winter, perhaps with an enhanced Hunger Games, but we'll see.

Thanks to everyone who participated, in every event. It really was a blast to hit the tab menu and see it so full with people running amok in your own game. Some, like Freakworld, stayed up exceptionally late to make it to a good deal of events.

2257 also proved to be a huge help, providing scoreboard help that made Capture the Flag as functional as it was, (in a good way) as well as a great deal of stuff to explore and mess around with, including the pipe system, the bounce house, the fireworks, Nimbus Land and the redstone behind the hotel.

Snack is credited for also working on the bounce house and the Tornado roller coaster, which unfortunately went unnoticed by many. He also helped with the hotel.

In the days leading up to game day, Uniju and I were often frantically finishing and testing things up. Elsewhere, Turb was busting ass trying to get the Hotel completed and working, to the point that he would go to it in between events to get it done. From what I recall, Turb was also the guinea pig for a lot of early Spleef and KOTH debug, and made a great afk player to perform testing on.

Stdaro has been our benevolent host for a long time and put up with some real messes caused by us. (read: me and Javelin) Nonetheless, he still allowed us to host this and allow a ton of people he doesn't know to come on, which is pretty awesome.

Lastly, Uniju, who came to me to set up this partnership in hosting this. We played on the previous Minecraft games of LTQ and Pyro's and clearly mutually felt this would be a fun thing to do ourselves. Without Uniju's connections, trying to host this and have 11 people join would've been a catastrophe of server lag. Uniju covered my slack in a few areas, sometimes creating entire events in a day or two. He may also be the reason the games carried through, as I was feeling tremendously burnt out with this Awards year, what with Final exams, the Art Contest and my comic presentation (this was before we got a month's extension). He kept me working on the games instead of scrapping them as I likely would've.

That's about it. Thanks again everyone, and if you ever do get a game going again, chances are I'd like to play.



Uniju and I are hosting a couple days of in-game minigames. We will be playing on Stdaro's server, whose IP address is given above. (this is the same server hosting New Princeton) Everyone is welcome to join and participate for whatever events they want.

Games are estimated to last about 45 minutes, with a 15 minute break between each. Each will be worth varying amounts of tokens and (possibly) rewards to bring back to New Princeton, to be determined shortly. The ordering is as follows:

Day 1:
*Loot Hunt
*Pearl Race
*Capture The Flag
*Spleef

Day 2:
*Hunger Games
*Go Fish
*Footrace
*King of the Hill

All event:
*Construction (will be accessible 24/7 from the beginning of the first day of the games until October 01, 2016, 12:00:00 AM)

There are also several fun areas, gambling events and unusual things to tinker with, play, or check out during downtime.

we've been thinking of when to do this, Uniju is open whenever iirc, so decision falls to my work schedule

what would work best for me personally is thursday the 22nd and saturday the 24th, but let me double check my work schedule before I say anything more

the week after that I have the 28th and 29th off if that works better for anyone

putting up a poll for everyone (three people) to vote on


22, 24th is more beneficial to us because we could use the 23rd as a floater day for people to work on construction projects and such. However, a person or two has informed us that 22, 24 won't work for them, so majority will rule I guess

i havent voted yet but apparently we should be able to have a building time day on either side of the 28th or 29th so either time is good with me

will probably end up voting 28th/29th just because thats more convenient for most people it seems though
