Participation
  • This event will not be broadcast. Players will not be jobbed. Tells will not be answered.
  • At 8pm, an event will be posted, accessible on the Notice Board. You just need to click to join.

  • Sailing Stations should be above decks. Carpentry stations should be below decks. Bilging stations will be in the cabin rooms.

    Rules
  • The bake-off will take place in sea battle. You must puzzle for the duration of the round. Players who are not on a station may be planked.
  • The first round will last for approximately ten minutes.
  • The duty report upon returning to the island is what will determine placement.
  • The top ten for each station will advance to the semi-finals.
  • Players who do not advance may remain aboard, but must remain quiet and may not puzzle.
  • The semi-final round will last for ten minutes.
  • The top three will advance to the finals.
  • The finals will last for fifteen minutes.

    Prizes
  • Prizes will be given for the top ten spots at each puzzle.

  • Other prizes will be determined.

    Does this mean that Hunter's Bakeoff Bonanza (an incredibly similar event), scheduled to run a mere 4 days after your bakeoff, will be delayed a while so we don't have two identical bakeoffs so close together?

    I do not see any reason for that. Player events are run based on player willingness and availability. Similarly, I am able to run events as my schedule allows. More opportunities is a good thing for the enjoyment of everyone.

    Just curious:

    What's the point of having multiple rounds if everybody can puzzle in the first round? Wouldn't it make more sense to have only 1 round that lasts 30 minutes and have the rankings at the end be the final rankings?

    The Sunday before this set of bake-offs has yet another bake-off at noon PDT, which should be at least passable for Europe (~8pm).

    I cannot see any way to prevent it.

    However, the vessel will likely have at least 40 people on bilge in the first round. If the water level ever raises above the baseline, I will be quite surprised. For subsequent rounds, if the water starts to go up, I do not believe it would drop again such that a crab would clear in this fashion.

    Familiar colours may be chosen.
