General Chat


I don't think you have to go to crazy on the bonuses, just pick three good ones and cycle them, you could even make it progressively harder for some.

Week #1 Bonus 1. Score all points that week on a single Kinect game.
Week #2 Bonus 2. Score at least 50 points in every Kinect Game played during this week.

Week #3 Bonus 1. Score al points that week on single game
Week #4 Bonus 2. Score at least 100 points in every Kinect game you played during the week.

Other bonus can include your other stuff just randomly throw one in.

Start and complete one Kinect Arcade game during the week.


I know it's about making things progressively harder, but you have to take in to consideration a few things..
First how many Kinect arcade games there are out there?
How many of your contestants may have already started said games, (due to the age of the games)?
How much would it potentially cost a person to buy said games?
How many Kinect games have already been played and how hard can it potentially be to get that many points from said games?


In looking at those questions maybe it might be an idea to lengthen the time required to get said gamer score.

Weeks 1, 2 and 3 are progressive, too, 200, 300

Week 4: 300

Week 5: 250

Week 6: 300

Week 7: 100

Week 8 & 9: 500

Week 10: 1000

Or something like that. Give a week of slow down and then rev it up again.. You can change the amounts and such but can you see my point?

You don't have to tell everyone the points up front for every week. You can randomly kick them out.. like that. but never k before week 10 or something like that.

You can throw out a bonus week, minimum 5 GS needed, that's it and you'll pass the week but the highest scorer for the week gets 2 or 3 bonus points, plus the Leader point or two bonus points and two leader points.. if the score is above 500 for the week..

Yes and thank you to all those ideas, Jeff! We should get together behind the scenes to set up the second cycle.

BTW, I have my points for the day, so all I need is tomorrow and sunday and I'll get the bonus! For the week, I have 400+ so I only need less than 300 to mee the week. Dang, this is getting hard... If only someone would concede, I wouldn't have to try so hard Wink lol (jk)

I have to admit due to my marathon Red Faction boosting I had very little time to do Kinect and spend time with the family, so I have yet to score even a single point in Kinect games this week.. Sadly.. I may get on and do something, but killing myself for 700 points this week just isn't going to happen. That's kind of how I came up with a slow week or so. Yea we could totally Pm to work on the next one.

I nailed the 700 today (at 750) but still need to put one more up tomorrow for the bonus. With two weeks left, you can still win it... just gotta be focused!!!

Wait, I did the math. If I win all 3 pts this week, and then you get the 3 pts the next 2 weeks while I get none, we would tie for top...hmm.

I got a challenge in a Kinect game, surely that counts for something? Wink

If there is a challenge in a Kinect only game and you earn it with in any week, you get an extra bonus point!

That doesn't sound like a bad idea - allows it to implement the One games more smoothly.

Last few hours left, and I haven't earned any achievements for today - it's been a family day. However, once kids are asleep, I will. Every point counts, especially since I did the math wrong on that equation up there - there's 3 weeks left... 9 available points left after week 7 finishes...

For week 8, the gamerscore goal is 800 points. The bonus point is awarded to anyone who gets a completion of a Kinect required game - motivation to finish up a game you haven't finished yet! 800 points though... this is getting rough!
I will be tallying week 7 scores here in a bit - I nailed 810 pionts and scored at least 50 every day this past week - wowza it's been a long time since I played so much. Looking at other's scores, I think I may be the only one involved this past week....

As for week 8, the points are 800 points, and the bonus is awarded for netting a Kinect completion during this week, preferably on an already started game - motivation to finish that last darn achievement up!

Good luck Big Grin

Well. that was a bust for everyone but me...
Sorry I was sick partially the week before last and then basically busted out 600pts in a couple of days, it kind of burned me out and I had Red Faction boosting, yea lost some momentum there.

Oh nice, good deal. I think once I (we) get this group planned a bit more smoothly, I think it will draw a lot more attention. Cycle 2 will be a heck of a lot more challenging, PvP-wise.
Alright folks, we're about halfway through the week and I know I am nowhere near 400 points for the week - maybe 100-150. I need to get it in gear - what about you?!?!
Hey folks, only a few hours left to get in your points! I am currently sitting at 745 and have not finished a game. I am gonna try and get it done now!!

Also, I am hovering at 178lbs, which means I am not losing weight, but it also means I'm not gaining either. Muscle weighs more, right Wink
Week 8 is up, and I managed to hit the 800 last night for the week. According to my math, with the two weeks remaning, there is no way for anyone to catch up to overtake 1st place from me. Also, B8TINGU is locked into 2nd place. However, with two weeks remaining, the battle for 3rd place could be quite exciting... LAFTA sits in 3rd with only a 1 point lead over 3 other players. C'mon guys, it's been a great run, but lest have some decent competition for these last few weeks!!!

I'll tally up points here in a bit.

Week 9 - 900 Kinect gamerscore for the point, earn any 3 2-player related achievements for the bonus point, and of course, the week winner gets the leader point.
It occurs to me I never posted week 8 scores. Here they are:

Week 8 July 27 - Aug 2
