GEF Games

Postby Amy Redman » Tue May 22, 2012 9:38 am

From the Harts, a list of games for the GEF:

Races

Flat Race
A standard run around the track.

Mages Race
Quickest person round the track wins - however, you may cast any spell at your opponents to help you win. No breaking the ritual of peace, no assistance from outside the competitors.

The Lord Provosts Sprint / the Lanchester Run
From our friends the Bears... Each competitor starts in a state of undress (one boot, no shirt, no coat/hat) and must run around the track, picking up and putting on their clothes as they go... except as they get to the second piece of clothing their chaser is released. The winner is the first person to the end with all their clothes on and without being caught.

The Squire Run
For the younger competitor. Similar to the Provosts Sprint, except it's late, you're being chased by Nanny and you must put out items to hold her up...

Egg and Spoony
The Egg and Spoon race (with larger spoons and water balloons instead of eggs), named for one of our lost Urchins.

The Sack Race
For some reason you're in a sack. Hop to the end!

Duelling

Fighting Competition
Martial Skill tested in one on one combat

Mages Duel - Lightweight Division
Two mages - first person out of the ring or on the floor looses. Nothing that breaches the ritual of peace may be used

Mages Duel - Heavyweight Division
Two mages - first person out of the ring or on the floor looses. No holds (or spells) barred!

Sword and Pint
Another from our friendly neighbours to the North. One on One duel, with a sword in one hand and a pint in the other. Winner is the successful duellist who ends their fight with the most liquid remaining in their pint glass.

Wench and Warrior
2 opponents have a "damsel" of sorts who must be protected but will also try to get in the way of either opponent. Hitting either side's damsel will result in instant disqualification. Might need to have the best loser rather than a winner with this one. Damsels using terms such as ''Es not worf it Darren' positively encouraged.

Tourney Games

Jugga
Standard Rules, played out on - and I quote the Lord Regent here - 'A proper, big pitch, so there's a bit of running around'

Judged Games

Spell Range
Competitors have two flags, and must place them at 10 foot and 30 foot away from the line. Closest wins

'At Competition
Competitors are judged on the quality of their hat - points for quality, innovation and representation of their home nation

Cake Competition
Competitors are judged on the quality of their cake - points for quality, innovation and representation of their home nation

Picnicing
Hardcore picnicing. Points for number of people, number of dishes, best weather proofing and representation of their home nation

The Stride Orf
Three Steps and turn while your opponent does the same. Points for Poise, Position, Pose and Length of Stride

Muster Chef
The finest Chef from each nation provides a dish for the judges to judge. How the nations decide their finest chef is up to them...

A damsel is a female. Usually a pinkskin, but not limited to any particular race. It's a kind of female who isn't necessarily capable of fighting, so has a male in order to do her fighting for her.

From what Amy has said above, this is a thing where you poke fun at useless girls. There's a kind of female villager who would like to cause her menfolk to fight.

Thinking about it - I might see if I can apply for the position of damsel. I might need a big strong warrior type to protect me...

We're getting steadily away from the main point I think. Remind me at the GEF and we'll discuss it. If anyone else wants to join in, then I suspect it'll be better done with the aid of alcohol. Actually this is best as a beer fueled explanation.

I think the way they wrote "damsel" implies you can have anyone you like be your distressed rescuee. I think they would enjoy things like Mr Troll in his ritual gear turning up. He made a splendid Juliet...

Not quite.

We had a game once, called a "Damsel Dash".

It involved three teams who each had a "damsel" - basically a non-combatant whom the team had to protect. The game was won when one team had control of all three "damsels".

In this case, we didn't have enough people who could actually qualify as "damsels", so a few people (including Seraphim) stood in for us.

Sword and pint duelling? Morbia be praised! For does not the book of Morbia say 'Thou shalt defend Hearth, Hooch and Honour', and 'Thou Shalt not Spill'? Surely all those of faith should bring sword and tankard to the Fayre, to prove their devotion to the cause!

And, for what's it's worth, my Uruk friends, I have often been very grateful that some our womenfolk can't fight quite as well as we can, or at least pretend not to be able to...
