# Thread: Challenges 6 and 7, Season 1: The Arcade Challenges

1. ....

BTW, I have no problem being in 3rd 4th place right now, 'cause I just came back from a game night in the REAL world and I like, totally kicked ass at Taboo. So there.

Found it.

You were purposely distracting me from looking at it.

2. So what do you do if someone that isn't on any team takes most of the trophies?

Kick 'em?

4. Here is how the cumulative scores work, I think:

If you're 1st on a leader board for a particular game you get 10 points. If you're 2nd, you get 9, if you're 3rd you get 8 etc and if you're 10th then you get 1 point.

If you're not in the top 10 for a game, you get zero points. If someone moves ahead of you, your points are adjusted downwards (eg if you were 1st on the board for a particular game and had 10 points, then someone comes in and beats you, your score drops to 9 for that game). The leader board is a total of all your points across all the games.

I'll wait for the pimp hand correction if necessary, and thanks to bluebell for her systems analysis.

For each individual game, you can rank up points for your top 10 finishes. The goal of Challenge 6 is to rack up as many of these points as possible. Higher finishes earn you more points. The points system is:

10th Place = 1 point
9th = 2
8th = 3
7th = 4
6th = 5
5th = 6
4th = 7
3rd = 8
2nd = 9
1st Place = 10 Points

Does that help?

6. Ivy and Notta...that is a very clear explanation, thank you.

So to sum up:
Challenge 6 rewards landing in the top 10 in any particular game
Challenge 7 rewards only finishing first for a particular game

7. I just got 36 and 45 on Addiction Solitaire, both times when I hit "send score" it showed up as 0. That = suck!

I play for keeps.

9. ## EffEm Posits Another Annoying Scoring Question

I don't mean to be a pest, but I can just foresee the chaos coming after these challenges, especially since they're the last ones.

Everyone is free to play the games, not just Gauntlet participants. Which leads me to three questions:

1. Can we/should we/will we erase the scores posted by non-Gauntlet participants on Sunday night to aid in scoring?

If not...

2. With regard to Challenge 6, if non-Gauntlet gamers occupy positions in the top ten high scores for a game, will the top ten high scores by Gauntlet participants be ranked 1-10 and scored accordingly? Or will points only be awarded based on actual forum-wide rankings? In other words, if Didums (for example) has the high score for Asteroids, will nobody get a "10" for Asteroids, or will the highest scoring Gauntlet player get a "10"?

3. With regard to Challenge 7, if a non-Gauntlet gamer has the high score for a game on Sunday night, will the highest score by a Gauntlet participant be declared the winner or will a winner not be named at all for that game?

I suffered through the mind-numbingness of Yeti Pentathlon (for the second time - I'd played it once before on INTPc and ONLY once). I hit submit and it said I was 'just practising' and didn't submit my score.
