Final elimination game, of the Dstra Xmas advent calendar game.

This is an elimination game, which purposeis to cook down all that have made it this far, down to one single remaining. We will throw quizzes, puzzles, magic and other strange things at you until only one remains that have passed it all. It will be easy, it will be difficult, and it will be stressful but hopeful also a little fun.

Players with more than one address in the game will find it a curse, a blessing or indifferent, depending on the game/task at hand.

How you solve something is unimportant to the game, only the result matters, -meaning you may cheat, steal, bribe, ask etc... There are no points for coming in at last place looking good, results matters.

Elimination round 1 begins at 12.30 UTC 27. December.
Stay tuned to the forum thread.

Elimination round 1

This is the longest (timewise) round. It is to eliminate addresses (players) that are not present for the game. It is four tasks to earn points. All addresses that have zero points after the time runs out is eliminated, as well as the two lowest with points. You have 3 hours to turn in results for these four tasks. You can do it in one go, or as soon as you have solved a task. You might do it public in this thread or send your result to me private. I recommend sending as soon as you have solved a task and privately,- no need to help other players :) but it is up to you.

Task 1-3 each gives 10-1 point. The first gets 10 point, number two 9 points and so on… Task 4 gives 18-1 point. The first gets 18 point, number two 17 points and so on.


Task 1 – what is missing?
ELI-R01-A.png

Task 2 – solve this soduko
ELI-R01-C.png


Task 3 – what is missing?
ELI-R01-B.png


Task 4 – Each of the playing address is send 1 dstra. Whoever returns exactly 1 dstra (not 0.99 or 1.01) the fastest to the sender address get 18 points, next 17 and so on… It must be returned from the playing address! sender address : DT7ThMKudKtcM84LKoe1v7RFQKaGesbEhV

Note: For those that have more than one address in the game, the points you score in task 1-3 counts for all addresses, while task four is individual to each address.

Happy playing.....

Elimination round 1 Result

Very very strange and unexpected result. Only two addresses answered any of the tasks! Task four to be specific. Meaning they returned 1 dstra. So this round eliminated all but two of the 18 addresses, as 16 of the addresses received zero point. I cannot eliminate the two with the lowest points too, as nobody would be left. Had just one more send 1 dstra return, we would have been done :)

Hmmm very strange result. Just have to have a moment on how to proceed….

hi, do we have next round?
Yes working on it :) Took me by surprise that we went all the way down to two players left in one go! None of the prepared games really works (read fun) for only two players. Many of the games are designed to bring it down to one from 3-4-5-6 players. So I’m kind of improvising right now :)

Xmas advent calendar game final did not finish properly.

First round eliminated 16 of 18 addresses. Not enough turned up to play. At the final, meaning just round two, the two remaining did not turn up either, despite running the same game twice :unsure: So I still got this final prize available.

So here is the deal: we are going to run some sort of game in early January.

:coffee: All 18 claimed addresses are in the game again.
:coffee: 16 addresses that did not get claimed, but got the required 10+ dstra, are also up for playing again, if they are claimed!
:coffee: Door 21 and 23 of the Xmas advent calendar are still not open, if they get opened, those that miss a few coins, still have to opportunity to get the missing and thus get into the game.
:coffee: This time it is final! If nobody shows up for the game, I’ll buy sushi dinner for the @Admin for the prize instead, or a diamante ring for the wife!

Identify / claim your address/addresses for the final elimination game of the Xmas advent calendar game.
Any reward will be send to one of these addresses, so it makes no sense to claim an address you don’t own (have in your wallet).
If you own more than one, claim them all, it might or might not help you during the final game. Identity both with forum and discord name. If you don’t want it to be known, send it to me privately (forum or discord), else just write it here in this thread.

hi, any update on xmas contest?
Not yet, working on it. We will have a game soon.
The remaining coins from Door 21 and 23, that did not get opened is transfeered to the prize instead. So a little more to get, plus its staking every now and then also.

:coffee: Final game rounds of the Xmas game is here :coffee:
Time for the final, and the long awaited end of the Xmas game. Still have this nice prize and I imagine that someone would like to have it. We got 12 users in the run for the prize, having in all 30 addresses. This is a winner only game, no runner ups, so we need to eliminate 29 addresses, and 11 users of these addresses.

Done some thinking about how to make a game, which tries to make time zones not an issue. Let’s see if it works out.

We got these users and addresses in the game.

Elimination Game 1. - Gather points

Starting tomorrow (Friday 8/2-19), around noon and running for one week. Gather points by getting your playing DSTRA address included in specified transaction blocks. You can send any amount to any address, even yourself, just get the address in the transaction block any way you can. Blocks will be listed below. There will be 42 dstra blocks specified, six each day, about every 4 hours, running seven days straight.

Rules:

:coffee: You get two points for getting your address in the specified block. You get one point for getting your address in a block off (plus and minus) the specified block. You can/will get points for all of them, like hitting the specified block and both the one before and the one after = 4 point.

:coffee: All zero points’ addresses after the last block has run, will be eliminated. If all 30 addresses have zero points, all are eliminated and the prize goes back to the team’s pension fund. Game is over.

:coffee: Minimum half of all none-zero point addresses are eliminated after this round. All addresses having the same amount of points or lower than the highest scoring of the bottom half are eliminated. Meaning you need to have more points, the same is not enough, than the highest scoring address of the lower half, of all addresses that have points.

:coffee:Remaining addresses continue to round two.

Blocks to gather points :

It is hard to commit for a week long game, but much fair for various regions.
Appreciate the good idea, and wanna enjoy the game!

True. No game will be perfect for a worldwide ordinance. It will either be a time zone issue or a time length-related issue. I choose the latter of them. In a weeks’ time, there should be the possibility to grab a few points on several days.

You may like round two, tho, if you go through to it :) Depending on number of people going though, it’s a "Byzantium Generals problem" style game. But it depends on number of people going through to round two. Too little and we skip it for another day.

Coming up at halfway in round one of the Xmas final - In about 2.5 hours. Things looking good, better than expected.

Remember, you will get eliminated if you have the same or less than the highest scoring of the bottom half of all none-zero points players. If the highest scoring of the bottom half has example 10 points, all with 10 points will get eliminated, regardless if there is only 1 or 2 left with more points.

If the highest score is 14, do we need 8 or more points to pass round1? I do not understand the rule, hehe.

Only 6 blocks left to score point + secondary blocks (block+1 and block-1).

Remember the top scoring of the bottom half eliminates all with same or lower points. Currently there are 14 players with points, number seven (top scoring of the bottom half) has 12 points – ALL with 12 points or lower will be eliminated!
