    Statues is a game that is held Friday Nights 8CST, that was first created to try and get the Aussies and Kiwis involved in the games. Winners get to show off the Tower Of Madams outside their house and have their statue placed in the winners circle. This forum is to show off the statues and themes as each weeks' game commences. All things statues related can come here.

    Please do not post any theme ideas. One of the challenges of the game is the last minute reveal of the theme, any that have been mentioned before start time, cannot be used as it gives advantage to those who know about it prior.

    Rules of Statues!

    1: Come to statues with an empty inventory and no armour

    2: No wool is to be taken with you after the game is completed!

    3: Using the wool provided, you have 30mins to build a Statue that relates to the theme.

    4: Trading can be done with any other player, but you will not be given extra time.

    5. Builders can build as tall as they would like but if the statue hangs over the obsidian they will get a DQ (disqualified) and will lose any chance of winning Statues that week.

    6. Throughout the game, the GameRunner/Judge will ask trivia based on the theme. The first person to correctly answer, gets a stack of wool their choosing of colour.

    7. People not playing but in the Statues area can still answer trivia to stop others from gaining the wool. .

    8. The theme will be revealed just before start time, but players may not start until 'GO' is typed by the GameRunner/Judge.

    9. he builders have 30mins (unless otherwise stated) to build their statue. Anyone caught building after time is called will be given a DQ.

    10. Googling for ideas, trivia answers or to copy statues is permitted.

    11. When finished building, use the 2nd sign to label your Statue for the judge to understand then come to the front and wait until the 30mins are ended

    To get to statues just simply go to /warp Statues

    Oh Straw can you have people like put a sign up in front of their builds at the end that says what they are?

    I like looking at them afterwards but sometimes have issues deciding what things are.

    How to you feel about the current judging system, what do you think we should do?

    In reply to Strawberryfl, #15:

    With having the people vote, players can vote for their top 3 in order of preference, so their fav gets 3 points, 2nd fav gets 2 points etc (obvs cannot vote for themselves), msg it to whoever and just tally it up.

    You could even mix it in with the current system and just add the participants votes on top, cause I like the category system in terms of a challenge

    Thats my 2 cents

    In reply to Strawberryfl, #15:

    I like the current system. We don't have to worry about people playing favorites with anyone, which provides a level playing field, and everyone has to meet the same criteria to gain points. The only problem with it is that the process is long. (especially when there is a tie) Anything that can shorten the judging time and simplify tie-breaking would be great.

    In reply to phydeoux, #17:

    I agree with Phydeoux completely, especially that the process takes way too long, you never going to get everyone in ventrilo to talk to so the typing slows the process down even more

    It's your game for your tower. Just pick your favorite and if people don't like it then too bad they shouldn't play.

    In reply to wazn123, #19:

    Indeed. Maybe announce third place, second place, first place by judge's decision. That way, a few good statues that didn't win get some recognition, there's less faffing about with scores and tiebreakers, and perhaps there will be less exploitation of the scoring system (since technically there wouldn't be one).

    I was going to suggest a panel of three judges, but a) that's too involved, b) that's taking it too seriously, and c) it's Straw's game anyway, originally done as a courtesy to our European and Australian brethren who couldn't make the Sunday Let's Plays because of time zone constraints.

    Some people may cry, "But people who build according to Straw's tastes are more likely to win!" Well, of course -- that's how lots of art contests end up working out, for better or worse. I refer those people to Wazn's previous statement.

    In reply to ag_poetz, #20:

    Never cried out against a Straw decision that was influenced, look I really don't mind. I never complained when Straw used to pick her favourite. I just want a faster decision really and I trust Straw's judgement every time I have played Statues, no matter what I say.
    (I never insult, not my thing anymore, I joke around every community event)

    If I win, I am happy, if I lose I'm happy I placed, if I give up, I'm not happy with myself, simple.

    Also I wouldn't mind if It was a little earlier, even an hour would help.

    Ladies and Gents! This friday I will be live streaming our statues on twitch.tv, this means, you and things you say will be live on the internet. Please be aware of what you say. Swearing is completely ok, but as usual, no derogatory conversations, and don't be a dick.
    If you have any questions please PM me!
    Thanks,
    Straw
