    At that point though, it may as well be the master riddle for the event.

    I think they're a collection of geography based riddles that aren't as difficult as Master Riddles.

    Foozle would be fun, but it's got a ton of luck. For example: Your card is: Ugrach (lol), summerstorm, cheetah, squid, colbey (dead) vs orc, captain, mage, smith, catfish (all in one area).
    Nothing wrong with Ugrach on a card. The really unreasonable ones are things like Jeramun, tsol'dasi, septacean (if you don't have a pebble)...

    As long as the Foozle is long enough - 30 minutes or more - then luck should average out. The trick is knowing when you have a bad card and getting the quickest thing you can to submit it, since it's not worth your time to go for more than one item unless you can get all 5.

    In terms of being a single-player event that rewards geographic knowledge, I think Foozle fills a very similar role to the Tumble Race.

    People can potentially automate Foozle, as they can with Tumble Races, but what are you gonna do... Maybe add new items to the Foozle card rotation for the championship event?

    It's possible to keep a database of every known item/denizen and their locations to make foozles easy, but those are much less popular and widespread (I've only heard of two people doing something like that) than autowalkers, and harder to share. Automation wouldn't be nearly as much of a problem as it is in the tumble races.

    Would totally support championship foozle for y700. Also some kind of ship event, with or without granting people temporary access to Seafaring (but you have to provide your own ship either way).

    I also think tumbleraces should stay, but if you're thinking of them not being worth the effort for championship points, maybe just turn them back into a normal 00/50 event with prizes and nothing else. This was the first I had ever done and I actually had a good time with it, and it makes me want to learn geography even better for next time.

    Sounds like the solution is to track those people down and kill them yeah idk

    You'd have to make sure some jerks didn't go around killing all the foozable things though.

    Yeah, there might need to be some kind of prevention method to killing foozable things during the event. Dunno. Hard thing to figure.

    Have a worldwide seamonster slaying contest, with points varying on the size and type of monster slain, with additional points for sinking other participating ships.

    As for being able to participate...seafaring only costs a little bit of gold and some time to actually acquire. Sure, captaining is a lot easier with trans, but anyone can fire a ship weapon with just 1 SPP. Honestly a seafaring event would probably open up participation to more people than most other events, since you need a captain, someone to lead forceboards, and a crew to fire weapons/follow along for forceboarding. Only issue I see is how to distribute championship points to the winning crew. Maybe have a designated 'leader' (not necessarily the captain) who gets the 10 points, and everyone else gets half? I dunno how that would work precisely. Giving everyone 10 seems weird.
    Pacific Rim?
