The End-Dance Begins

July 5th, 2008  |  by pm  |  published in Commentary for Sapiens

Today is In Deep End-Dance +1.

The Sapiens are ready - they know what to do.

The Ludens are ready - they have told Twitter to talk to their mobile mini-glowboxes and have begun to head for Birmingham city centre.

At 10am @ladybird_appie’s city-wide treasure hunt/Ludens teaparty mission mashup will begin.

@ladybird_appie has the instructions, @TheLudensShow has the commentary.

Yohmoh has decreed that points will be awarded for cross_triangle’s mission 40 once a few more treasures have been found

yohmoh @cross_triangle by my reckoning, 4 out of 10 of your treasures have been found. I will award points at 7 out of 10.

Cross_triangle has responded this by updating the map to make it easier for Ludens (or Sapiens?) to find the remaining treasure.

cross_triangle i is try mark in mip which tres sure gorn, i not totly sure, mebbe can message meif more gorn?

Don’t forget to let someone know if you do find some. Perhaps in the comments here if you’re not one of the Ludens.

Meanwhile a few more bartered items have been retrieved and it looks like a particular treee in Can On Hillp Ark has become the new SquishUp Carp Ark as favourite place for leaving items. We think there’s still a bidge out in the wild awaiting collection from Loki, hope the squirrels don’t get to it first…

bartered goods and gift

Meanwhile, nice-talking ladybird_appie has arrived at a date for the Grand Finally. Ludens from different parts of the country will be congregating in Birmingham on the afternoon of July the 5th. This has been declared In Deep End-Dance +1.

Two new missions have also been written specifically for the newly-returned Dave_the_Mouse. Will he complete his comeback by rising through the Ludic ranks before In Deep End-Dance +1?

Here is the current points tally, cross triangle is now comfortably over the 2000 barrier:

Things are just ticking over now in anticipation of ladybird_appie’s grand finally….

Day 16

June 20th, 2008  |  by pm  |  published in Commentary for Sapiens

It was once suggested The Game was to finish today, but it seems the Ludens are having a hard time accepting that the play may have to stop at some stage. There is still much bartering going on, Lepufo’s been busy around the house, Loki and Lepufo both told origin stories so could they could graduate to Ludens Ludens and ladybird_appie is planning a grand finally mashup of missions 40 and 8, currently set to take place in/across/around/over Birmingham on either the 4th or the 5th of July. Though there’s a growing movement to choose the 4th of July:

avalokitesvara @ladybird_appie 4th of JULY? maybe weMerican themed it and go invade someone?

avalokitesvara Invadin fings is called In-deep end-dance apparently

ladybird_appie @avalokitesvara end-dance? well, that seems very appropriate! how do we go about it - do I need to make any spessul arragements?

avalokitesvara need lots of plains i fink. will rees earchit

egorbeaver oh am likin forfofjuly plan - luden sa can call it work so can come do merican tressure hunt

avalokitesvara pparently in-deep end-dance is all about blowing things up, punching aleens, and smoking cigars.…

We’ve not yet been told the details, but sounds like it’s going to take a bit of time to plan. Expectations are that it will be good.

And that’s about it really, all a bit quiet after all the activity of the Ludens’ Tea Party last night and several players graduating to Ludens Ludens, nothing much happened at all, not a lot to write about here that anyone’d be interested in.

Oh, except

Dave_the_mouse came back!

Here’s how it unfolded:

Dave_the_mouse Thanks to Loki and lepufo for being concerned about me. I got lost down the back of the sofa.

lepufo @Dave_the_mouse Hellooo! Great to see you! can you come to the treasure hunt?

aposematic (appie) ladybird_appie @Dave_the_mouse

lepufo - Yipee!

welcome bak

Dave_the_mouse *blinks* Didn’t realise I’d caused so much trouble by being lost in the sofa. Treasure hunt?

yohmoh @Dave_the_mouse oh Dave, where to start?! welcome back, anyway. Glad you’re safe.

Dave_the_mouse Oh my ears and whiskers!! People were really worried. How can I make amends? Maybe there could be a mission suggestion just for me?

yohmoh @Dave_the_mouse How about decorating yourself and getting your photo taken as a starting point?

yohmoh Also we’ve found lots of new Ludens friends since you were last with us - you might want to follow them.


Dave_the_mouse There’s my piccy. Decorations.. hmm. Will there be a party when the game ends? I likes a good party.

yohmoh @Dave_the_mouse Great! Good to finally see you! Actually, there was a big teaparty last night (that’s why it’s so quiet here today).

yohmoh @Dave_the_mouse @ladybird_appie wants to organise a big treasure hunt/tea party in a few weeks’ time.Can you come?

lepufo @Dave_the_mouse yay! you has face, I wasn’t far off

So, there you go. @Dave_the_mouse is back and apparently wanting to do missions.

What mission do you give to a mouse that’s been lost down the back of the sofa for 72 days?

Here are the day’s scores:
