Happy Autumn

This autumn, we have a number of competitions for you to enter. You can win gold in them. At least some credit as usual goes to


Enter each by 23:59 on Monday 9 November - 150 gold is available to win for each competition

Frightening Films (http://archive.forum.travian.co.uk/showthread.php?t=78555) - Work out the terrors and the films/show they come from

Fantastic Fireworks (http://archive.forum.travian.co.uk/showthread.php?t=78556) - Fit fireworky words into the grid

Double, double, toil and trouble (http://archive.forum.travian.co.uk/showthread.php?t=78557) - Hunt down the ingredients on the forum

Lords and Ladies (http://archive.forum.travian.co.uk/showthread.php?t=78558) - Pick your House of Lords name...

And a winner of 150 gold will also be randomly selected from those with correct/best entries who have not won a prize in the four competitions listed above. If there are a very low number of entries, this will change so someone effectively wins 150 twice.


Rules and small print

Entries, or sign-ups, must be submitted by the above dates.
In general, gold can be won in two ways:
1 - A single winner is picked - using a random number generator - from the correct entries.
2 - A winner is picked through popular vote. In some cases, entries may need to be short-listed by crew.
Where by vote, in the event of a tie, crew would usually split the prize in half, or in some circumstances and if gold is available, each winner will receive the same, original amount. No one should attempt to manipulate voting so that their entry wins, for example, through messaging large numbers of players in game, or getting your alliance to vote for you (regardless of whether they like yours best!).
Crew can enter competitions that they are not hosting/short-listing/have inside knowledge of. No member of crew will receive an advantage over other players in any selection process to pick a winner.
Gold doesn't not need to be instantly credited to accounts, e.g. if waiting for the next server to start, but it should be claimed within a reasonable time. Gold can only be applied to accounts on this domain.
If someone wins and does not want the gold, the prize will cascade down to the next entry.
Headline prizes of 150 gold are set out above (and on each 'entry' page). Other prizes may be awarded e.g. for 2nd, 3rd prizes at the discretion of crew (and would be published).


Any questions?

If you have any questions, please feel free to PM Samantha78 or Mod Sam (albeit both the same person). This includes for any advice in uploading/hosting pictures where necessary for some of the competitions.

Lords and Ladies - PinkFairyKing wins 150 gold. PFK was the only entrant and so there was no need for a poll. His entry was 'Lord Pink Fairy of Fairyhouse'

Frightening Films - Ryder wins 150 gold. The character that seemed the most contentious was 'Billy' the puppet/doll used by Jigsaw.

Double, double, toil and trouble - Three entrants successfully trawled the forum looking for the right ingredients. Thief, Tombo457 and Zippy5. The successful winner chosen at random is Thief. Thief also had the honour of being surprisingly quick with two competition entries submitted on Halloween itself.

Fantastic Fireworks - Four entrants successfully slots the words into the grid - at varying degrees of neatness - the winner chosen at random is Zippy5.

Across all the competition, that then left Old Bat and Tombo457 as those with successful entrants that had not yet won a prize. (FiaB is unfortunately not due to Billy/Jigsaw). The winner chosen at random is Tombo457.

Congratulations to all of those who won gold. Please can you send me a private message letting me know what account/server on the UK domain you'd like it applied to.
