The Metro Station Challenge

From Minecart Rapid Transit Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Metro Station Challenge is SkyjumperTalon's challenge game based off of other Searching Games, with Talon's twist. The winner of every search gets 15 dollars.

Format and Rules

  • Every time a challenge is opened, it will be announced in #events channel on discord.
  • The challenge is to travel to a certain metro station (old or new world) on any city. You must figure out what metro station that is by solving clues.
    • Two clues will be revealed on day 1. One will be about the city, one will be about the station itself. The challenge is always solvable with just these two clues
    • A clue about the city will be revealed on day 2
    • A clue about the station will be revealed on day 3
    • On days 4, 5, 6 and 7, the 4 clues will each be narrowed down to make the search easier.
  • A challenge ends when either:
    • Someone has found the metro station and won
    • 168 hours (1 week) have passed since the announcement on #discord.
  • Once you arrive at the metro station, you will find a chest with a light blue banner. Inside the chest, you will find a book with 1 word.
    • This chest will always be on a platform. You should search all platforms at a station if you don't find it at the first.
  • Send the word to @Talon#1599 on discord. If you do not have discord, you can ask someone else to send me the message on your behalf.
  • NO STAFF POWERS ARE ALLOWED!
  • Personal homes are allowed.
  • Google, Wikipedia, or any outside sources are allowed
    • You are allowed to work together with other players
  • All stations will be on a line with active service. This can be warp train or powered rail.

Season 1 (provisional)

At the end of October, all players who have won a search will be invited to four major searches. Once one player wins one major search, they are guaranteed to go to the final round. The four remaining players (who each will get 50 dollars) compete for a 200 dollar prize in one last search.
