Puzzle ALL Day - National Puzzle Day - January 29, 2016[Winners Posted] Reply to this Post

Puzzle ALL Day - National Puzzle Day 2016
In honor of National Puzzle Day, we'll be hosting various tournaments and puzzle competitions throughout the day with an extra group of "Main Events" starting at 9:00 PM game time, as detailed below.

09:00pm-Competition-All ship puzzles (not including foraging)
Overall prizes: 1st Yellow & Rose Parrot and Resplendent Pirate Trophy, 2nd Yellow & Tan Parrot, similar progression for 3rd & 4th
Individual puzzle prizes comparable to tan familiar events (but no familiars)
Individual puzzle 1st place winners place winners entered in "Finalists" drawing.*
Individual puzzle 2nd-3rd place winners place winners entered in "Semi-Finalists" drawing.**
Duration: 180 minutes total, multiple top places

09:00pm-Competition-All shop puzzles (including foraging)
Overall prizes: 1st Rose & Yellow Parrot and Resplendent Pirate Trophy, 2nd Tan & Yellow Parrot, similar progression for 3rd & 4th
Individual puzzle prizes comparable to tan familiar events (but no familiars)
Individual puzzle 1st place winners place winners entered in "Finalists" drawing.*
Individual puzzle 2nd-3rd place winners place winners entered in "Semi-Finalists" drawing.**
Duration: 180 minutes total, multiple top places

09:00pm-Tournaments-All four puzzles
1st place Yellow Octopus or Monkey, 2nd place tan Octopus or Monkey, alternating between puzzles.
3rd and 4th place prizes comparable to colored familiar events
Finalists from each tournament entered in "Finalists" drawing.*
Semi-Finalists from each tournament entered in "Semi-Finalists" drawing.**
60 minutes warning prior to posted start time, double elimination


Drawings
Two random drawings will be held at the end of these events. This should be around Midnight-unless the tournaments run long. I'll be watching from a secret alt to record entrants, but players do not need to remain online to be entered in either drawing. Each ocean will have separate drawings and prizes (Cerulean, Meridian, Emerald). Although tournaments and competitions will be run repeatedly throughout the day, only the 9:00PM set of competitions and tournaments are eligible for these drawings. Winners and their prize selections will be posted here. Prizes are non-transferable so be on your "Main" pirate to win! I can't prevent folks from trying to use alts to gain additional drawing entries, but to discourage this, I will disqualify from the drawing any entrant whose account was created after January 21st, 2016 or who does not have at least "Broad" experience in the puzzle they qualified in. This may still allow some alts in-but they still have to win, so I don't want to hear any complaining about this!

Finalists
All players who placed 1st place in any individual puzzle for the 9:00PM set of either Ship or Shop competitions, or made it to the Finals of any of the 9:00PM set of tournaments, will be entered in one drawing (per ocean) for a colored familiar of winners choice (Parrot, Monkey or Octopus, no hats, in standard event prize colors). Once a winner is drawn, the remaining entrants will be rolled over into the Semi-Finalists drawing.

Semi-Finalists
All players who placed 2nd-3rd place in any individual puzzle for the 9:00PM set of either Ship or Shop competitions, or made it to the Semi-Finals of any of the 9:00PM set of tournaments, will be entered in one drawing (per ocean) for possible additional prizes. Winners will be drawn in order listed, then removed from the remaining pool of eligible entrants.
  • (1) Tan Octopus
  • (1) Tan Monkey
  • (1) Galene will Puzzle for 1 hour on your voyage (restrictions apply)
  • (1) Free portrait with Galene (restrictions apply)
  • (3) Galene Doll inscribed "<Winner> Puzzled ALL Day, January 2016"
  • (1) Gold Piggy Bank (contains PoE prize)
  • (4) Pink Piggy Bank (furniture item, does not contain PoE)
Claiming a Drawing Prize
Tan familiars, Galene dolls and Piggy Banks will all be delivered immediately after drawings are held, in a Rose & Yellow wrapped present inscribed "National Puzzle Day - January 2016". You don't need to do anything to claim these prizes.

Finalist drawing colored familiar winner will have 2 weeks to petition with their selection. Petition subject line should read: "ATTN: Galene, Puzzle Day Prize".

Portrait winners: You'll have one month to collect your prize. This will be a 2-person background portrait, your choice of those available to the public at that time. You may select an appropriate title for the portrait as well, but I'll be wearing my standard outfit/standard pose. You may also choose a location, including my Tea Ell Sea (I'll loan it to you temporarily, and you can job me to your crew). I'll purchase both the original, which I will trade to you, and an additional copy I'll keep for myself. If you want additional copies, you'll need to take care of that yourself. I'll be available Monday-Wednesday, 10:00 PM through 4:00 AM. When you are ready to collect, petition with the subject line: "ATTN: Galene, Puzzle Day Portrait" and include in your petition the background, title and location you've selected, so I know you're ready to go!

Galene will Puzzle winners: I will not puzzle on your PvP or blockade voyage. I will ONLY perform Sailing, Carpentry or Gunning, and no I won't defend =P
I will not provide any additional benefit to the vessel, so be prepared that jobbers may get distracted by my beauty and my presence could be a liability, and plan accordingly!
Below is a set schedule of my availability, and while you will have 2 weeks to schedule (by petition), it's 1st come, 1st serve! Petition fast to make sure a winner from another ocean doesn't take your preferred slot. Petition with the subject line: "ATTN: Galene, Puzzle Day Puzzle Reservation"
Available Dates and Times: Any Saturday in February, any hour between 8PM and 10PM, Any Sunday in February between 8AM and 10AM or 11PM to 12AM.

Thank you Galene! This is one of the many reasons why people get distracted by your beauty.

Question- May we have the details for the tournaments? Like the rules for the td, swordfighting, drinking, and rumble. Or is it a wait and see kind of thing?

There will be other competitions and tournaments going all 24 hours, so you'll have something to keep you busy all day long!

Is it limited to one entry for the finalists drawing, or can you get multiple entries if you make it to the finals or come in first in multiple puzzles/tournaments?

Each position you come in is a different entry, so technically multiple. Just keep in mind that while that's probably easy to do with the competitions, it'll be harder on tournaments since they all start at the same time.

By non-transferable, does that mean you can't trade what you win to another pirate after the competitions?

Depends on the item-obviously you can trade anything but the portraits and my puzzling, but I won't change doll inscriptions or deliver anywhere else. The portrait and puzzling can't be "traded". If the person who wins the puzzling logs off mid-hour, so do I!

Hi,
Im just seeking some clarification, with the ship puzzles having best Incred, Excell, Good and fine, to get into the draw do you have to finish in the Incred section or in any of the overall sections?

That was a booch that has been fixed now.

I spent my morning and afternoon without internet, in a rush to try to set these up at a restaurant on an almost non-working laptop. Fortunately home internet was restored so I could be on to double check the drawing ones before they started!
