Hello everybody and welcome to the second iteration of the Ultimate Gaming Olympics (UGO)! This 3-week collaboration event between Battle Dome, Board Games, Game Corner, Mafia, Scavengers, Survivor and Trivia intends to find this year's ultimate gaming champion! Starting May 21st, midnight UTC and up until June 13th, midnight UTC you can collect points in all rooms in exciting games and events.
UGO - a central hub for all information and quick access to all rooms.
Battle Dome – A text-based RPG, with weapons, classes, and magic galore!
Board Games – If you find yourself board, play some games here!
Game Corner – Play games and bet responsibly. No coin case needed.
Mafia – A chat game about deception, intrigue, and strategy. Can you survive the night?
Scavengers – Participate in fun scavenger hunts or create some of your own!
Survivor - Luck based games that include alliances, betrayals, items, and much more! Will the odds be in your favor?
Trivia – Learn something new every day!
Most rooms have nonstop regular gameplay, but there's also various events for you to join in on. All of them can be found in the UGO room and the individual rooms, or at this neat little calendar. A description of every event will also be provided in the room, and on the official UGO website.
The point system has been meticulously crafted to make sure all rooms are enticing to play in, while keeping everything fun for those that want to compete and keeping the identity of the room intact as much as possible. You can read all about it here.
No good event is complete without prizes and we have one for our top 5 overall players, as well as one for the top participant of every room! The overall top 3 will get one of: a custom avatar, a namecolor change or a namechange. All of the top 5 will get a custom title on the Smogon forums. For the individual room prizes, look no further than the aforementioned website.
How do I play?
You can jump right in for every room! Need more information on how to play? Check out the workshop events in the first weekend for a how-to-play of every room! Each room is hosting one or two each so there's ample opportunity for us to show you the ropes!
(Do note that you can only earn points starting Midnight UTC May 21st.)
I have another question...
Check out the room FAQs in the UGO room for any questions you may have (type /rfaq in the chat). Do you still have a question? Ask the roomstaff and they may have an answer for you (or make sure that you get one).
