Team seeking is still going on, but we're also getting ready for our week 7 event - Shuntbumps! In Shuntbumps, players fly around trying to knock everyone else off their broomsticks. The last one still mounted on their broom was the winner! Good news - Shuntbumps is not inherently dangerous. Bad news - since the objective is to knock everyone out, even if WE aren't trying to kill you with rocks or fire, you'll be trying to destroy each other. But you only have yourselves to blame if you don't play nicely.
For our irc version, we'll be playing Horse, another game in which you have to try to knock other players out of the game. In this case, you just have to focus on not being the last one to answer the question! For each question, you'll have to p2p your answer to the bot, and the last person to submit a correct answer gets a letter. Once you spell out HORSE, you're out. The last person left is the winner! If this sounds confusing, don't worry, there will be lots of explanation and help when we play!
If you need any help getting on IRC, feel free to send Arielle or Mattie a message and we'd be happy to help you get you started!
As with last week, all participants will receive beans from this week's sponsors. If you're interested in sponsoring this week, please send a message to Arielle and/or Mattie, letting us know the name you would like to donate in and the number of beans you want to contribute for the week!
