The rules:

Following the stewardship of Jodokast over the years I have agreed to take on the running of the challenge.

For this year I will be keeping much that I liked about Jodokast's format but changing the awards slightly.

Rather than awarding a badge for 10 and 100 points I'm hoping there will be badges for stages completed (I confess I have to get these badges sorted). The stages will (hopefully) be:

10 points
25 points
50 points
100 points
200 points

Hopefully, this means everyone will then get a chance to aim for the badge they feel is suitable for them.

The challenge started at the beginning of the year (1 Jan) and continues until 31 Dec 2019. The closing date will be using the geek timestamp, (Review must be submitted before 2400 hours 31 Dec 2019).

The DEAL is this, you read the rules, YOU SIGN UP, sorted.

The Goal

In this challenge your goal is to accrue points by writing reviews of any item or listing on RPG Geek with a review forum.

This 2019 is similar in the 2018 review challenge but has some changes to prior years. In particular bonus points are being awarded for reviewing an item with no previous reviews.

The Prizes

Badges, badges, badges (as noted above).

There will be geekgold awarded - I'm still not sure how this will be allocated but I will be awarding prizes based on tips made to this post and 500gg of my personal stash.

As my personal gg is being thrown into the pot I reserve the right to hand out random prizes on the basis of some abstruse system I come up with over the next week or so. One prize will definitely be given for reviewers that hit all the themes for the year.

Whilst I will writing reviews for this challenge I will be ineligible for any geekgold.

See the main thread (coming soon) for an accounting of the current prize fund.

How do you score points?

The basics: you score 1 point for each review you write between now and December 31, 2019. Your review can be attached to any element of the database (RPG system, item, issue, periodical, series, setting) except for a single article. The only condition is that the review must be posted first to this site. No fair recopying everything from your blog to win the competition!

There are lots of ways to score more points on your reviews. You can earn an additional point in any (and all!) of the following ways:

d10-1 Ranking – You will score one additional point for ranking the rpg item you have reviewed in the rpg database and for making a comment on the item in the ranking system. If you've read this far you will realise that every review should be able to score two points, one for the review, one for ranking the item.

d10-2 High-level: By reviewing an RPG, periodical, series, setting, or system. (Anything aside from an RPG item or issue.) NOTE: If you review an RPG that has only a single item (and will only ever have a single item), and you choose to place your review at the item level, you may still claim this bonus. Keep in mind that RPG (rather than item) reviews are meant to be comprehensive and based on actual play. Just be honest with yourself about whether your review merits the bonus. We trust you!

d10-3 Homegrown: By reviewing an entry produced during one of RPG Geek's design contests or events.

d10-4 Theme: Each month will have two themes. Get an extra point for reviews that fit either theme (max 2 per theme). Get a review that fits both themes get 2 points (and street cred, sweet sweet street cred) You get to decide whether you hit the theme. But don't be a jerk about it.

d10-5 Consistency: Claim a bonus point for each of the first two reviews you post during each calendar month.

d10-6 Session: If you submit a review AND session report for the same item/RPG/etc. Both must be listed under the same database object to count, and both must be posted in 2019!

d10-7 No previous reviews. I have decided to return to expanding the range of reviews on the Geek and thus an extra point will be awarded if the item reviewed has no previous reviews.

d10-8 Length – Score 1 additional point if the item you are reviewing is over 32 pages in length. The idea is to count printed pages as you would find in a physical item, most pdfs count pages like this. If you find a very unusual item ask. Score a further additional point if the item is over 200 pages

d10-9 Temporary Bonuses: I reserve the right to institute temporary point bonuses throughout the year to connect with other events on RPG Geek. These will be announced in this thread.

Comments

In addition, you earn one point for commenting (constructively!) on someone else's review. This is limited to one bonus point per month.

But dock yourself a point if you reply to a review to correct spelling errors, grammar problems or typos. If you see those things, send a geekmail to the author.

Taking the Challenge


If you're interested, sign up below!

Fair warning: you will need to:
