Jeff, since this forum is just you and me talking to each other (and somejabaroni), and I have been wanting to brainstorm ideas for this or hear what specific tasks you are thinking for this ARCADE SPECIAL CARD THING OR WHATEVER
(and if we are doing this for April we better get a move on, and I want to make it look nice).
(for those of you tuning in, or somejabaroni, Jeff's idea is to have some sort of ARCADE FUN CARD with like... 10 tasks on it that you have to complete throughout the month and if you do you get a prize).
this could also be fun because somejabaroni can suggest tasks too?
I kind of like the idea of having two different task lists: one easy and one hard? like one for kids and one for serious gamers (like ourselves). Different prizes to go with each card of course - the kids can get something that we are basically giving them for free, like stickers or something. But then the serious gamers card gets something special because not all of them are going to be able to complete this card.
Jeff whatever silly tasks you are thinking of probably go with the kids cards and I am going to come up with some serious hard tasks.
Okay here are some ideas:
- Complete the entire TIME CRISIS 2 GAME - Get your initials put on at least ONE game on the Galaga machine (right now this is EASY) - Spell all names in DONKEY PINBALL on SHREK, getting DONKEY MULTIBALL??
- I still want a task relating to the forum... maybe not just as simple as "create a forum account"... or maybe we require them to post at least 1 pinball score on pinside ??

well let's get into this then
Here are my thoughts on this, and I still think it's a very good idea.
I would call this the Dumb Arcade Achievement Card, going along with modern game acheivements and the new Stern Insider thingy, only this is paper and not some silly phone app.
I don't think having multiple cards is a good idea, would probably make it more confusing and harder to facilitate.
I think once a card is created, it should last for at least 2 months before we switch it up, give people plenty of time to participate.
My idea for a prize would be a unique button that says "I'M A DUMB ARCADE MANIAC" or something like that, which you can only get if you complete an achievement card.
I also thought we should start in May, so we're not stressing over trying to do this as well as shows and RSD at the same time. That way we have plenty of time to come up with the acheivement list, design the card, order the buttons, etc.
If we have card stock we can use on the printer, we can probably print the cards ourselves.
One thing with making these cards is, we have to be sure to use games that aren't leaving the arcade anytime soon.
I like your ideas for acheivements Here are some ideas I had:
- Beat the Pterodactyl on Joust - Get an extra life in Asteroids - Get Pool Ball Mania on Cue Ball Wizard - Get in the top 3 on Daytona
I also like the idea of making people create an account and comment one time on the forum.
