OK. So I was looking through the depths of my website and I still have the scripts for the player's pin chooser there, as well as the pin checker and random pin generator that I wrote for Lara and Bookbanshee when they were running Mastermind. I could easily run the game with these. I'll ask about doing that, even though that would mean I couldn't play :(

In the meantime, I'd forgotten, I also wrote a 6 pin mastermind game for my own amusement, which is also on my website https://spiritofchaos.co.uk/mastermind/game.html if you're feeling nostalgic

we could run it together so that you can play some of the rounds too, and so that i could play some of the others. i'm hoping that someone else would wanna host it but not play it.

Also, maybe new rounds from
United colors of MOBILISM - Regular users rewarding
United colors of MOBILISM - Not-so-regular users rewarding

I always loved those two contests.

Maybe one of the Contests Mods can run it so we all can play it. :D Rain used to run it.
Maybe she can. Or Nonny, bear, or Ice can.

I'm the one that used to run it. Rain started it, but she passed it on to Bookbanshee and me, and then it was just me running it for a very long time.

The mechanics of that game is very tedious, and a lot of work went into running that game.

I asked a question! Though you probably didn't notice as it didn't contain the word Antarctica :D

Maybe I should start a campaign to bring back Mastermind, it was a nice game, and I could play it because somebody explained the rules to me :lol:


It's always important to rule out Antarctica at the very beginning of the contest, spirit!

Now I think I finally have the 'What is my Occupation?' answer, so need more guesses or have to wait for five more days!

It is YOUR responisilbity to check and make sure that an update has been posted before you start posting again, check the update post to make sure you are not out already out for an offence before posting again... continuous infraction of the rules will result in more severe punishment...


Since it's a real pain to check all those pages, I go on the assumption that it will close at least once in 24 hours and post only every 2nd day. So far it seems to have worked. :)

I'm glad you have a system that does work...we try our best to keep it as close as possible to 24 hours...but real life can interfere at times. What may take a person a minute to check (but don't) can add a lot of extra time to what we have to do.

I know it can't be exactly 24 hours, that's why I go 2 days. Of course, if it ever goes REAL long then I'm in trouble. If that starts happening I would probably just stop playing rather than create headaches all around.

And I do understand where you're coming from. :)

When Ice and Bear were made contest mods (for which I was happy and still am) this section achieved a balance between almost all the time zones so we all could have opportunities to play but now with Kat having to step down and Nonny being pretty much always absent that balance has tipped which is bad for the European and African time zones :(
And yes, I mean for me!

I do appreciate Ice & br trying to make up for Nonny’s absence, but they usually run their games before 8am my time. I would love to see more contests run during my daytime hours as well. I can only catch some games if I stay up until 3-4am my time or wake up very early. Nonny usually runs a few games in my afternoon, but with her gone, I get nothing at all during the daytime. It would be great if mobi could get someone to run contests during the day for Europe & Asia.

Nonny is on a holiday I believe.

Yes, she’s “On holiday”
Hope she’s having an awesome time :D

Now we all wait for some Nonny's holiday postcards :lol:
But on the other side I agree with Amill and Alessa :thumbup:

Would any of you be interested in a "Three-card Monte" contest? I would love to hear any feed back, either here or by PM.
If I could maybe find enough support that when the Contest Managers all return they can put their heads together and read what we think, we might have a new contest... and if we're lucky it could be run to be more time zone friendly. eh Alessa :D
