Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.

Okay, DONE. I declare all VINGOS through the end of the contest. Can I donate a VINGO to a needy cause?

I will be Minecrafting tonight, maybe 11PM-1AM Central Time. I have quite a few achievements just sitting there to be had...

I just need two people to come co-op with me. (Hey Zombie, why don't you come co-op...)

Launch 360 Minecraft, select your world, don't press A to launch, press Y to upload. Exit

Launch X1 Minecraft, get ready to select a world, press Y to download, PLAY

It's been nearly a month and we haven't even finished two rounds yet. Actually, we haven't actually finish one round, we just cried mercy on one and moved on.

Bonuses will be added in additional rounds, focus on getting out of this first round to find out what they will be. Focus on what you CAN do right now to complete a row, get to the next round, and maybe you won't have to play some of those pesky squares. Wait and see. I am always thinking and creating content within events. Keep at it!

But, Bingo is an open-ended game, so, I have no issue with the extended run, but, honestly, I am not really in a hurry to declare, because, why?

However, I like that someone is trying, and having worked on events with ChromeZombie in the past, I know the next ones will improve.
Oh, and in Bingo, the center square is the FREE SPACE. Usually represented with a star. And FOUR CORNERS is an official Bingo game style, just like BLACK OUT (it is almost the same odds as a normal Bingo, since the center is free, and 4 possible bingos pass through the center, requiring only 4 more squares drawn, a 4-Corners draw does not throw off the math enough).

In fact, moving the free space from the center to any other square affects that square and Bingo odds more. In the Center is is part of horizontal, vertical and both diagonal bingo lines. Anywhere else, it is part of only 2 or 3 lines, not four, making it less valuable...

Is it possible to withdraw from the competition? I have absolutely no idea what is going on at this point.

If this is done again in the future, there needs to be a separate page or something that lists who has VINGO, what round it is and if there are any bonuses in effect, it's incredibly difficult to follow what the heck is happening through a convoluted single forum with hundreds of posts.

Just my opinion...

I too understand everyone's frustration and it is warranted. However, I have adjusted on the fly as there weren't as many active participants. A lot wanted in, but a lot of them didn't push hard to knock out any squares. As stated previously, we would go into extended time if it was required, and it is, as of right now.

As Futiles stated, future events that are grand scale as this will be much more thought out, questions asked, and asked again for clarification. Hopefully I have at least one other member to bounce the ideas off of. For now, we are where we are. Only the strongest and most competitive will survive. Is that YOU?
