Starts May, 15, 2013.
Ends September 2, 2013.



Welcome to the Summer Nerd Games Arena!
I, pinkleo, shall be your host and Head Gamemaker.

The Summer Nerd Games welcomes all players from the Nerdyverse to join!  The games are to inspire, encourage, and motivate your crafting adventure.  Players can join anytime during the games.

Are you wondering if you are part of the Nerdyverse?   I think John Green describes quite well...
“…nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. ...when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”  ...I think we are all part of the Nerdyverse. Cool

Rules of Engagement
--There is a list of challenges, for you to complete.
--You complete a challenge with crafty item you think fulfills it; you can use your description to make it clear on how craft fits challenge prompt. 
--Players must craft to the best of their abilities and have a minimum of 30 minutes of crafting time per submission. 
--A project can only be submitted for one challenge (the same project cannot be entered in multiple categories).
---A project does NOT have to be "nerdy" to fit a challenge; it only has to fulfill the prompt as you see it.
--Challenges must be started & completed during the Summer Nerd Games, unless otherwise noted.
--There will be SO MUCH to do in the Summer Nerd Games.  Do not feel like you have to craft everything.  Do what inspires you.
--We welcome all players from the Nerdyverse, no matter their Geekdom. 
--We are never mean. 
--We never exclude someone.
--We will keep it cleanish (PG13). 
--We will follow all Craftster guidelines, this includes staying on-topic (serious OT goes in FOC OT boards). 
--Before playing, you must declare your Geekdom (Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Star Wars, zombies, etc.).  If you jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it, then that is your Geekdom. Cool
--Never hesitate in contacting Head Gamemaker pinkleo with your questions, concerns, or ideas.

For the Summer Nerd Games, you can play Solo (aka Ninja Style) or as a Team. 

About Teams
---Teams are where like-minded players join to work together. 
---A team must declare their Geekdom.  A few examples are Doctor Who, Tolkien Science, Big Bang Theory, Harry Potter, Buffy, comics, zombies, musicals, Disney, medieval, Sherlock Holmes, horror, My Little Ponies, gamers, Fraggles, 80s, Hunger Games, Muppets, Monty Python, steampunks, Tim Burton, chocolate, Jane Austen, recyclers, owls, trees, cats, Stephen King, dystopia, and mystery. 
--Someone must be declared Team Captain before a team can be officially formed.  You may have more than one captain for your team.  Team Captains are needed just as a point of contact for anyone wanting to join a team, and they should be cheerleaders for there teams as well (All  teammates should be cheerleaders for their team).
--You can start building your teams now! Grin  Team Captains need to PM pinkleo when wanting to start their team so it can be listed in the Official Nerd Games Team Roster.  Once a Team Captain(s) is listed, then the Team Captain(s) can either list in the thread or PM additions to their team.
--There is no limit to the number of people in a team.
--Once a team is formed, you cannot deny entry to anyone who wants to join.


---HOW TO TURN IN A PROJECT---

Nerd Games Alert
--Craftster's Anniversary Challenge: Ends August 13, 2013


Battle Royale
Changes each month.  Choose your side and craft a project to represent one side.  Must be completed within the month of the battle.  Winner announced each month.

---CLOSEDAugust Battle: Star Trek vs. Star Wars-STAR TREK WINS!---
Trek-5, Wars-3

---CLOSED: July's Battle: Marvel vs DC-MARVEL WINS!---
Marvel-8, DC-7

---CLOSED-June's Battle: Horror vs Romance-ROMANCE WINS!---
Horror-8, Romance-16

---CLOSED-May's Battle: Pirates vs Ninjas-PIRATES WIN!---
Pirates-16, Ninjas-10


Game Challenges
You may complete challenge any time during the games, but you may only submit each prompt one time.


AUGUST
---Textbook: Simple Machines: A simple machine is a tool that makes work easier.  There are 6 types of simple machines: Inclined Plane, Lever, Screw, Wedge, Wheel and Axle, and Pulley.  Research one of these simple machines, and craft something inspired by it.

---Multimedia: "It's time to play the music.  It's time to light the lights.  It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight.":  Created in 1955 by Jim Henson; the Muppets have become friends to almost everyone in the world.  They have taught us letters, numbers, and what it means to be a friend.  This month you are to study the Muppets.  Pick one aspect of them and craft it.  Your project can be centered around a particular muppet, one of their famous songs/movies, or an ideal that they represent.

---Wordy: Judging a Book by its Cover: Book covers are not just a protective shield that binds pages together.  It is many times the reason you are lured into reading a novel.  Plus, after you spend many hours and days with a book, the cover becomes like an old friend, causing you to smile whenever you spy it.  Pick a book cover that you love, and craft something inspired by it.  A few examples of inspiration would be the colors, themes, or an item on it.  Let us know which book cover inspired you, and if possible, add a image/image link to your turn-in.

---Fandom: "I have got to get me one of these!": From TARDIS Cookie Jars to Wizarding School Scarves to Band Tees, fans are always coveting items that represent their Geekdom.  Your challenge this month is to craft something you covet.  For example, it can be inspired by an item you pinned or a craft you've always admired.  Don't forget to mention your original inspiration piece.

---Randomizer: Alternate Reality: In this world you are a member of another Geekdom!  Craft something that is not from your Geekdom.  Make sure to note which Geekdom you follow in this alternate reality.  (Your alternate reality Geekdom does not have to be one declared in these Games)


JULY
---Textbook: Guts & Glory!: Pick a particular system within your body (muscular, digestive, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, circulatory) and craft something inspired by it.

---Multimedia: Companionship: Traveling though time and space can be lonely, so the Doctor always travels with a companion. Craft something that comes in pairs or multiple pieces that go together.

---Wordy: Proverbs: Every culture, tradition, and religion has its proverbs and adages. Some are elegant and poetic. Others are witty and humorous. Many convey much wisdom with just a few words. A quick internet search will yield a wealth of common adages like, “A penny saved is a penny earned,” and “Honesty is the best policy.”  Your challenge is to craft something that illustrates or is inspired by a proverb/adage. Be sure to quote the proverb in your submission.

---Fandom: Fanfic: Fans regularly create and write down imaginings of the favorite Geekdom.  Create something that would fit into one of your favorite Geekdom (does not have to be your declared Geekdom, just any Geekdom you love).

---Randomizer: Our Ancestors  Since the dawn of time, the Nerdyverse has existed.  …guy who invented the wheel, total nerd…. We are going to focus on minds towards the past.  Craft something that either is inspired by our prehistoric past (dinos, cavemen, cave paintings) OR is created from a vintage pattern/method (vintage think 1970s or before).


JUNE
---Textbook: Waves are all around us! Light we see, sound we hear, electricity we use, earthquake or tsunami events, even the particles we are made of are all wave phenomena.  In mathematics and science, a wave is a disturbance that travels through space and time, usually accompanied by the transfer of energy. Your challenge this month is to create something that incorporates waves, whether you play with them as a mathematical model/pattern or a natural phenomenon.

---Multimedia: Disco began the era of dark clubs, bright lights, and reflective dance balls. Use something bright and shiny in your craft in honor of this musical era. (sequins or glitter, anyone?)

---Wordy: Many little nerdlings find their way to the Nerdyverse through reading.  Pick one of your favorite childhood books, and craft something inspired by it.  (Because I’m quite old, I rule that books that you loved from birth to teen counts as childhood.)

---Fandom: Super Fans can tell you every detail, back-story, and aspect of their Geekdom.  Craft like a Super Fan by creating something that is either extremely detailed or has hidden aspects that you must take a closer look at to see.

---Randomizer: Zombies ate my brains!  Make a project that is a no-brainer.  Use a go-to pattern, material, or technique.


MAY
---Textbook: Prime Numbers  A prime number has only two divisors - 1 and itself. The first 25 prime numbers  are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, and 97. Your challenge is to demonstrate prime numbers in a project.  Examples: prime number of yards or shapes (i.e. triangle).  NOTE: One is not a prime number!

---Multimedia: Red or Blue?  In the Matrix, the blue pill and its opposite, the red pill, are symbols representing the choice between the blissful ignorance of illusion (blue) and embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red).  For this challenge you must choose; craft something either red or blue.

---Wordy: Haiku  The Haiku is a very short form of Japanese poetry. Traditional Haiku are composed of 17 syllables in three phases of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively.  To fulfill this challenge you must either:  Create a Haiku and a corresponding craft. OR Craft an item that is inspired by the 5-7-5 phrases of the haiku.

---Fandom: Worth the Wait  Waiting can be the hardest thing for diehard fans.  The torturous wait for the next book in a series, the next film in a trilogy, a new album from your fave musician, or the release of a film on video can seem to take forever.  To make the time go faster, grab a WIP (aka Work in Progress) and complete it.  WIPs can be projects that you just haven't quite finished or projects that you bought all the supplies for but never got around to actually making. 

---Randomizer: Scrap Heap Robots have become our overlords!  We are part of the resistance.  To create our weapons and survive in our underground tunnels, we scavenge the scrap heaps looking for materials we can use.  For this challenge you must reuse, re-purpose, recycle for your craft.

---Research Projects---

--Research Projects are more time-consuming than challenges and battles.  There is no hard and fast rule on how many hours a project should take, because speed and difficulty levels are too subjective.  What we are really looking for is a project that will be a personal challenge to you.
--Research Projects are projects that take 3 or more weeks to complete.
--Projects that do not take the allotted time of crafting will not be counted as complete; keep that in mind when you post your completed Research Projects.  If you finish your project earlier than expected, then craft an additional item(s) that correspond with your Research.  Add notes on how you finished earlier than expected and details about your additional crafting in your Completed Project post.
--Research Projects can be anything that takes up at least 3 weeks of crafting time.
--You will earn 100 points for each Research Project.
--You can earn Bonus Points for Research Projects.
--Research Projects must be proposed before starting so that Gamemakers can track timeline and encourage your successful completion.  In your proposal, you will give details on what your plan is and how it will take the allotted time to complete.  
--If your Research Project is a surprise, such as swap project, you may submit your Research Plan to the Head Gamemaker via PM.
--You may propose a Research Project any time.  Any unfinished projects will carry over to the next season's Nerd Battles/Games
--You can only have one Research Project going at a time.
--If you decide to abandon a Research Project, notify the Gamemakers, and they will erase that log from their records.  Once you have submitted to have a Research Project erased, you can propose a new one.


---HOW TO COMPLETE A RESEARCH PROJECT ---
1. Select what project you would like to complete.  You may only do one Research Project at a time so select carefully.
2. Propose what you plan on doing for your Research Project.  You may do this by posting in this thread or by PM to your Head Gamemaker.  When making a Research Project Proposal, please use the header below, and make sure you give details such as methods using, materials using, plan of action, timeline.  These details will help us cheer you on and inspire future Research Projects.
3. Begin work on your project.  Feel free to add progress pics in the Nerd Games Discussion thread.
4. Once your project is complete, post a picture of your project in this thread; make sure to use the Research Project Header provided below.  Once you post a completed project, you will earn a Special Research Project Badge.

FAQS
in case the above is clear as mud
---Once you declare your Geekdom, will you craft only your Geekdom, or are you allowed to craft any?  You can craft any!  And your submissions do not have to be "nerdy."  They can be anything you feel fits the prompt.
---Can stuff 'count for more than one craftalong? YES!  This is particularly important to those who will be participating the Summer Term of the HPC.  You can submit a project in both the HPC & Nerd Games, as long as it fits a prompt.
---Does real world science & maths count as a Geekdom? YES! Math and Science are real world Geekdoms and are definitely part of the Nerdyverse.  Remember, if it makes you jump up & down and smile, then it is a Geekdom in the Nerdyverse; it doesn't matter what it is.
---Can Nerd Games Staff participate in the challenges?  YES! Staff members can participate in all that the Nerd Games have to offer.
---How do a form an Official Team? PM or announce in thread you are forming a team.  Your Head Gamemaker needs a team name, declared geekdom, and at least one peep to be a Team Captain.  Captains are just a contact (PM or thread) for others to say "Hey, I would love to join Team preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'WhateverYourTeamNameIs')!
---Can you only do 1 of the challenges? Or can you do a project to represent each? You can do all challenges once.  Each project can only be submitted to one challenge.
---Can I be on more than one team? Players can only be on one team. But you can craft any geekdom.
---Can I earn more than one Nerdy Bonus for one project if my project represents more than one Geekdom? No.  You can only earn one Nerdy Bonus per project.



Example Challenge Prompt
Here is an example of a Monthly Challenge Prompt, which was derived by jennieingram. A big thank you to jennieingram!

Game Challenges:
--Multimedia: (TV/Movie: Star Trek):  In Starfleet, officer jobs are traditionally denoted by the colors the officers wear.  Uniforms are red for command, gold for engineering, and blue for science & medical.  Craft something red, gold, or blue in color.
 

Now, pretend that you are on Team Jedi with a declared Geekdom of Star Wars.

To fulfill the prompt you could do many things.  You could crochet a red afghan.  You could mod podge together a gold paper crown for your friend's birthday party, that is a replica of a crown in your favorite fantasy novel.  Or you could make a blue pixilated quilt of R2D2.

Making the red afghan would get you the base amount of 30 points for a project. [30 points for completing a Monthly Challenge]

The gold crown would get you bonus points for making something from the Nerdyverse (Remember, it's from your favorite fantasy novel; make sure that when you describe your prompt that you make the connection to the Nerdyverse crystal clear).  So now your projects is 40 points. [30 points for Monthly Challenge and 10 Bonus points for Fandom: making something inspired by the Nerdyverse]

Making the quilt of R2D2 would get you 45 points, because it fulfilled the prompt, had to do with the Nerdyverse, AND it had to do with your Geekdom of Star Wars. [30 points for Monthly Challenge, 10 Fandom Bonus Points, and 5 points for creating something from your declared Geekdom]
