Reminder, we've got only about 36 hours for week 5 to be up. I did some preliminary tallying, and B8TINGU has gone nuts - scoring aver 1600 points this week so far.

So the race for second place is on - who's against me?! I've got 600+ so far...
its totally worth it

I have 605, but from only 2 games. So, I am gonna load up three games and get another 150 at least today - it's anyone's game still...
Here ya go folks:

I am getting closer to 175, averaging 178 the past few days. Almost there!

How are you doing in your goals?
Alright folks, here we go with week 6! The score we're trying to reach is 600 gamerscore from Kinect-required games. The bonus point this week is awarded to anyone who scores all 600 points from a single game. That's right. I just made it kinda hard. Good luck, and get it done!
Halfway through the week folks, how are you stacking up? I managed to finish this week's points and bonus this morning. I'm sitting at 600 - I may have to put up a few more to keep Jeff at bay... we'll see.

It also seems like this is just turning into a contest between you and I...lol. game wise anyway.

Yeah it does look that way Jeff. That's okay. Cycle two means it'll be harder for us to compete, and hopefully our efforts will inspire a greater following for next time. My goal was to hit 175 at the end of this cycle, and I may just do it - your competition has pushed me to further it.

Thank you. Seriously.

Not that I've been participating in the actual spirit of the event, but my feedback would be better visibility into what the weekly goal is. I know it's in the thread, but sometimes I just mark the entire forum read because I don't see anything that peaks my interest and fits in my time schedule. For example, I just had to skim the thread to find your last scoring update, then naturally I assumed shortly after that would be this weeks goal (it was next post).

I think it would be more user friendly if I ignore this for two weeks and feel like trying again, I just went to first post and saw the standings and this week's goal. /shrug

Only a few short hours left to earn your 600 for the week - and the bonus is awarded if it is all from the same game!

Kaens, thank you for the input - this is still in trial and error, and as it continues, I am noticing the flaws and planning on addressing them in the second cycle. I was hoping for more interaction from the members, but it seems like the idea has faded in some folks eyes'. I am going to continue running it as long as it benifits at least one other person in reaching fitness and life goals. Also, in the second cycle, I am planning on awards for the top three. I haven't determined what yet. but I think it may inspire more participation.

Next week's challenge is 700 points, and the bonus is going to be the toughest yet - scoring 50gs minimum on each day the challenge runs. It's never too late to start playing.
TBH I could have scored the bonus but I just didn't want to waste the points, I'm gone to need them...lol. But I know I atlas made the goal for this week. Maybe we can get a badge or something like that...hmmm... (pondering) NO! I am not awarding any badge this cycle and I do not know of any badge currently in the works for this it was just a a random thought. (sorry)

I think some kinks need to be worked out before a badge could be officially considered. It was never my goal, but it would be a nice addition/reward.

And since either you or I would get it this cycle, it would be a bit biased Big Grin lol
I will start tallying the points later this afternoon. I nailed the week points and bonus goal, but just at 600 on the dot - if anyone topped that, they might get the highest score point.

This week is 700 points, and the bonus is awarded for earning 50 points on each day of this week. (Monday through Sunday)
Week 6 results are in:

Week 6 July 13 - July 19
B8TINGU---------640gs---1/1 completed---3 (leader)
porschephiliac--600gs---1/1 completed---2
LAFTA-------------0gs---0/1 completed---0

Roku750-----------0gs---0/1 completed---0
BigNev44----------0gs---0/1 completed---0
Preludecris-------0gs---0/1 completed---0

B8TINGU nailed the top spot again with 640 points, and I put up only the minimum for the week. It's getting to be a much tighter race for the top spot!!!

Reminder, this weeks' goals are 700 points, and eanring at least 50 points on each day. I have mine so far...
3 days in, 3 days scored so far. This might be the hardest bonus for me to complete...

I have actually gotten food poisoning since yesterday afternoon, been really sick and down. I haven't gotten today's scoring in yet. I hope to get it after work if the kids will let me Big Grin lol

After giving up a 2400+ day streak on 360V, it's been really hard for me to score daily, let aloneon Kinect. I need an idea for next week's bonus, too. I was thinking something like completing 2 arcade games or something. Being so ill the last 24hrs has really demotivated me.

But, I will overcome!
