Games Scoreboard
It's August! That's... like more than halfway through the year. (Cutting edge commentary, Thai.) Anyone excited for the heat to wind down a little and the leaves starting to change colour? :coffee:

* There's a new game on the Games forum - how exciting! Boolprop is coming together to tell a collaborative story in Chels' Keep the Story Going! thread, where each two word post adds to this epic saga! Stay with us for periodic updates on how the story is growing - as of this writing, the story is:
Spoiler:
Two sims named Sage, other named William, and kicked tires until they ran out of the garage flailing because the monster under...

Shocking! Do Sage and William make it? What is the monster under? Is the monster anyone at all? Where are these sims' player? Do you want to know? So do we - go join in on the story! (I'm betting the monster is under the car, but I'm not a betting man. :angel1: )
* The new V4 thread of Up or Down is a dead heat! The number count has only moved up by 2 since my last reporting - with Pony posting 238 on the 30th July! But the uppers are making progress - kind of.
* 10,000 posts without any kind of lock is on post 4162!! We're nearly halfway there!! Keep going, team!!
* My Duck, Duck Goose section has been usurped by the Ban Chain this month, because I've gone mad with power. A gourmet selection of tasteful reasons for banning this month include, but are not limited to: Taco pizza giving funky dreams, and Chinese food giving nightmares, flip phones, cuteness! and giant cats?.
call me Thai!

Summer Holidays

I have tried to keep the holidays section lighthearted and fun, but our community represents people from all over the world, and I know that there are holidays that are special that don't get included. So feel free to leave a comment below, telling us about a holiday that is coming up for you and how you are going to observe that holiday. Or tell us about a holiday that has just recently gone by in the month of May or June, and share your experiences here with us to enjoy!

Coming up on September 5th, we celebrate Labor Day, a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Though it is not a holiday that is celebrated by the masses, there is an event taking place in August that I am participating in at the Westgate Resort in Las Vegas, NV from August 11th through the 14th. This event is the World Pool Championships. I have played pool for many years on a league and have always worked hard to help my team get to the Championships. This year, that hard work paid off! "The American Poolplayers Association (APA) is the World's Largest Amateur Pool League. With more than 270,000 members throughout the United States, Canada and Japan, the APA awards over $1.5 Million in guaranteed prize money every year during the APA national championships in Las Vegas!" Here is the official history for anyone interested!

BOOLPROP HOUSE STATS

Here are the boolprop house scores for the first month of this quarter. If your house is not in the lead.... you have two months to change that! ;) So no worries!

Image
65 POINTS


Image
90 POINTS


Image
0 POINTS


Image
480 POINTS


Image
160 points


WHAT CAN I DO TO EARN MY HOUSE SOME POINTS??

FORUM EVENTS - Taking part in forum events earns your house 30 points per round. After tallying up the points for each house, this was the thing that made a HUGE difference in scores! So, what are you waiting for - go take part in lets build it, or boolprop chef! Remember, BNTM also counts for points now, 30 points per round!
POSTING CHALLENGES - You can currently earn points for reaching generation 5 in a posted challenge, and completing a challenge.
MEDALS - You earn 30 points for earning a medal. This is an additional 30 points from any other achievements - e.g 30 points for completing a challenge, 30 points for earning a medal.
POST COUNT - Keep an eye on your post count! Reaching certain milestones also earns you 30 points!


Also, make sure you are posting these achievements in your houses score thread! They will not be counted unless that is done so. :( When tallying up the points I literally just go through your houses score thread and add them all up - so if it's not there, it wont be added!

Good luck for next month guys, lets earn some house points!!! :#1:
