    FoE oriented riddles.

    1) First correct answer wins. Example: On horse I trot, until I'm not. I defeat then return to retreat. What am I? Answer would be a champion.
    2) Second contest could be coming up with the riddles and PMing them to the Mod.

    An In-Game Scavenger Hunt ( don't know if this has been done before)
    So my idea is for an In-Game Scavenger Hunt! You describe something in the game... for instance, let's say a Bronze Age tree - You start off with three and I am green.
    First one to find what it is wins. Might be a bit complicated by that's my idea.

    What 4 buildings are shown here?

    The idea is to take a snapshot of parts of a city and to identify what is shown.
    The question can be anything relating to the picture - even 'What is the girl screaming in the centre of the maze?'
    For example here we have a Sacred skywatch with parts of Babel, CoA and St Marks.

    I thank you.
    Should I win then S world is my chosen city

    A War of Ages

    The player builds an attack team from a varied, pre-selected assortment of Bronze Age units. (All units the player uses are supplied by the contest) After choosing which units make up their team the player fights against wave after wave of enemies, with the enemies growing in number and leveling up in age every so often. The player fights as many battles as possible until they lose or decide to quit. Afterwards the player can build a new team and start the process over for another attempt.

    All combat bonuses from outside the contest are ignored (ie: Zeus, CDM, speaker's corner etc.) Damage incurred carries over but the player is allowed to heal a limited amount of damage (5) in between fights for free.

    Each battle won earns the player Battle Points which can be used for prizes or purchasing upgrades for their team. With the amount of Battle Points increasing with each consecutive fight won. After winning a battle, the player can choose to quit, continue, or take a break from their streak.

    Upgrades that can be bought include:
    Attack bonus
    Defense Bonus
    Increased Healing after wins
    Upgrading the Age of their units

    Each upgrade can be purchased multiple times but the price increases with each tier.

    (all upgrades bought are carried over thru the duration of the contest but are applied only to the contest)

    number of players that went on FoE on a given day,
    or the length of total time people played FoE a given day (to show how popular and awesome FoE is!:))
    or name a building with.... (for example, a "c" in its name)
    the player with most answers wins, top 5 get prizes.
    name a building with.... a "c" in its name.
    name a building that has color blue in it.
    name a building that was a possible prize during the 2017 summer event.
    and so on.
    only 1 answer may be given at a time, and only 1 entry/post a day. Duplicates will not be counted.
    hope my ideas are good! thanks so much! ;)

    I am a colonial age player who loves this game. From
    Noarsil world.
