Hokey Pokey Special Maneuver Event Blockade (30th January 2010)

Date announced: 30th January at 11am pirate time!

Turn your sloop right, turn your sloop left, turn your sloop right and spin it all around ... come do the
Hokey Pokey At Vernal Equinox


What is this you say? It is an event blockade using maneuver tokens. Teams will get points for each maneuver token you use and style points for trying to dance the Hokie Pokie.

Where: Vernal Equinox
When: To be Announced Teams need to be registered at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the event blockade.
Who: Everyone is invited to participate. Teams of 1 to 7 on a sloop
How it works:
* Have a sloop at Vernal Equinox and be at least an officer to be able to participate.
* To sign up, team captains should send a tell to Lj to be jobbed into White Rose for the duration of the event. (Only the team captain needs to be jobbed into the crew). Communication for the event will take place in White Rose. Teams need to be registered at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the event!
* Teams will have 1 round to earn as many points possible.
* Maneuvers don't need to be used in conjunction with the dance, but why not make it fun.

Point Values
Objective Scoring
Chain Shot: 1 point
Skull Shot: 3 points
In-Place Turn: 1 point
In-Place Turn with Tidal Wave: 3 points
Double Forward: 1 point
Ramming Speed: 1 point
Flotsam: 1 point
Burning Flotsam: 3 points
* For more information on maneuvers, check out the Yppedia. http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Maneuver

Subjective Scoring

Five points will be awarded to each team that tries to dance a little bit of the hokey pokey while using the maneuver tokens.
Interpret the hokey pokey however you want with a sloop - be creative.

* Prior to the turn in which you will do either a special maneuver or will be doing a dance sequence, announce in crew chat and make sure that you have permission from the judges to go ahead.

Prizes:
1st Place: Fancy Ribbon for each team member
2nd Place: Ribbon for each team member
3rd Place: Starfish for each team member

This is the most awesome idea ever.

What happens if someone gets sunk?

In the case of a ship sinking, they will still get all the points they earned up to that point.

Re: Hokey Pokey Special Maneuver Event Blockade (May 22, 5 PM Pirate Time)

Don't forget to move a sloop to Vernal Equinox if you want to participate. If you need help charting your sloop, send me a PM here or a tell in game.

Re: Hokey Pokey Special Maneuver Event Blockade (May 22, 5 PM Pirate Time)

Due to the number of blockades this weekend, I am going to reschedule. I think the last thing anyone is going to want is an event blockade this weekend.

You put your left leg in, your left leg out, in out in out and shake it all about. You do the Hokey-Cokey and you turn around, and THAT'S what it's all about!

On a more helpful note: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hokey_Pokey

Re: Hokey Pokey Special Maneuver Event Blockade (30th January 2010)

I really enjoyed playing in this event. Though I didn't get any style points for trying to do the hokey pokey, I still found it fun to run around trying to sink people while doing the special tokens. Congrats on the well ran event LJ.
