    Well, considering it's gotta celebrate the 25th anniversary of FF games I would suggest a Triple Triad tournament since it's part of the forum and celebrates FF. Not only this but a General Final Fantasy pop quiz with different categories such as Riddles, guess the quote, caption this screen shot and so on so forth.

    I think Steve is definitely right and the event should be relating to Final Fantasy! Steve's idea of many small events has put an awesome picture of my head of letting people joining the team of their Favorite FF and letting them garner points for it with the ultimate goal of that Final Fantasy being crowned The Final Fantasy of the Forum.

    a kidnapping of some sort
    that involves texting maybe
    an alternate reality game

    actually it'd be a good idea if we had a texting system where users could respond to random battles or something

    like

    'You encounter a goblin!
    >Fight?
    >Magic?
    >Item?
    >Run?'

    and in order to beat the goblin they have to send a picture of something; sort of like an item finding competition. and say they only have 3 hours to respond with this defensive picture or whatever...

    and then they send the text back and we calculate some sort of levelign system

    although this sounds pretty complicated

    i was also thinking of doing photoshops with other things that occured 25 years ago

    2012

    robocop and barrett shooting things together, i dunno



    ps i've just promoted goldenboko to sub-leader

    Assistant to the regional leader?

    That texting idea is super awesome. Sounds really complicated, and requires someone to give out a number, although internet to phone texting does exist.

    I think dumb that down a little and we could totally do it. We could even incorporate that into the above event as a mini-event that would garner points.

    Sod texting people won't participate if they think theres a risk to their security or it may cost them something. Use mognet messaging instead. Or usernotes.

    yah steve's right i wouldn't give an eoff mod competition my cell number either haha

    caption screenshot and triple triad tournament are great ideas
    we could do all of it honestly, along with crowding a final fantasy as the best final fantasy (final fantasy adventure would win obviously)

    I was thinking an invasion of Monster profiles or something. But that was a stupid idea anyways.

    I don't think everyone is going to want to do a tourney.


    My ideas:
    Drawing contest
    Final fantasy Festival with a different event each day such as said above
    meetup?
    mini mafia?

    For the Triple Triad tournament we could ask BoB if he can produce a card pack to be awarded to the winners of the 1st 2nd and 3rd place positions. To prevent these packs going in to other players hands he could set the gil cost ridiculously high and award the players who win the gil in the db. I believe thats possible.

    Also we could look at arranging a fantasy blitzball league?

    there's a fantasy blitzball program out there

    TheSphere - Fantasy Blitzball | Free Games software downloads at SourceForge.net

    but i'm not sure if it just helps you set it up or if it actually randomizes results too

    either way i dunno enough about fantasy leagues to do this sort of thing but if anyone is passionate about it i give my blessing

    I think this could be awesome, easy, and doable. Simply choose a team's defense, goalie, a few players for goals, and have the host play a game a night for a season. Whoever has the most goals, least goals given up, and most wins, wins!

    I also feel like Triple Triad is a great way to go - I'm sure Staff can easily make packs, why not instead of handing out premier packs, winners get a card modeled after them that they get for free and others can try to get! Have like a few different events with a EoFFer card as a prize!

    Basicallly imho the best thing about FF games aside from the game is the sheer number of mini-games they often contain (less so in later entries) but VII - X definitely contained lots Lets celebrate this!

    Just organized some of our ideas onto the first post. We should probably flesh some of them out more, but that's for a different thread, this is just for brainstorming!
