Spring Colors Familiar Tournaments
brought to you in association with Kitt's third prize-winning egg!
-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

When: Monday 24th March
Where: Cobalt, Hunter, Midnight, Sage, Viridian
What: Tournaments with the grand prize of a parrot with one of the new colors

Each day of the Easter Easel doodles is inspired by one of the new Easter egg designs. With Kitt's fresh spring colors, I thought it would be a good opportunity to enjoy some of the new colors in feathered form! I'm pre-announcing the doodle to give people notice of the tournament times.

* Tournaments of the same type will be approximately simultaneous across oceans.
* Parrot colors and other prizes will not be pre-announced.
* For any puzzle, tournament settings may be the same on all oceans, or may be different on all oceans. Settings will not be pre-announced.
* Tournaments will have at least a 15 minute sign-up time, and probably more.
* There will be four tournament times:

4 am game time: Rumble
5 am game time: Drinking
2 pm game time: Swordfighting
3 pm game time: Treasure Drop

Yarrr!

Edit: To compare game time to your local time, type /info while in the game, and it will display the game time.

A little question about the times. Hasn`t the US just entered daylight saving time? And if so does that reduce the time difference or am i just very confused.

For GMT it will then be
without the 1 hour difference:
12 am rumble
1 pm drinking
10 pm SF
11 pm TD

or

11 am rumble
12 am drinking
9 pm SF
10 pm TD

Well I live in the US, and yes we have just entered daylight savings, but dont know how that will affect timing. In my time zone (EST) its:
7am rumble
8am drinking
5pm sf
6pm td

And PacificST is three hours before that

Use the advice I put in the edit at the bottom of the first post. Use /info in-game to find out current game time, and use that to work out the tournament times in your local time zone. Game time is currently PDT, but you don't need to know that if you use /info.

These are the approximate times that the tournaments will start - so each tournament will appear on the tournament boards some time before the given times.

A lot of US elementary and high school students do. I know Easter Monday is a federal holiday in Canada (I'm not sure of your country of origin), but here it ain't. Most school districts here in Michigan do give Good Friday and the week after Easter off, but some don't.

I, of course, woke up too late for the first two tournies and will be at work for the other two. >8(
