Anyway, this has been my second DML game (Bluehat and now this) and it's again, been brilliant. The amount of work you put into it is astounding. Good show!

Awesome stuff there Jay.

Good closing ceremony too DML.

Once more it's been a great pleasure to have taken part.

I shall now take up my Guru duties, such as polishing the crown and looking down on the little people.

You can also travel free on the Tube. AND DON'T LET ANYONE TRY AND TELL YOU OTHERWISE.

I really enjoyed that perk.

I heard it can get you into certain tourist attractions and museums for free. Sort of like a Blue Peter Badge.

Shame the Rhydon avatar isn't around anymore.

The odds on that have got to be astronomical.

Quite. I can't believe there have been 8 of these things now. Top work DML. I just bought Halo, having essentially not played a game since going to university in 2007. So, that explains the timing, but even still, it's rather serendipitous. Congratulations to the new champion!

Enjoy Halo. It's awesome.

Or, if you fancy the old-school style:

You've got to use one of those. Things aren't allowed to change around here.

Cheers Parksey. I'm rather impressed that this forum is unchanged since before I originally joined.

Brilliant.

Nothing has changed at all.

Rik left for a week, but then came back.

Woah, hang on a minute, DML. Less of this "we" stuff. I mean it's Falcon, it's not as if Mazzacre has returned.

Does any one have any pointers for DML to take on next time? I know I do.

*My big request for the next competition is the return of teams. Not only does this foster a different type of atmosphere at the start of the competition, I think it also helps bed people in. The team aspects work so well, that it often keeps getting brought up once members are fighting for themselves.

Also, if you have teams, you could make it so that the elimination only happens after a few tasks. The past few times, a team or two have been eliminated after three tasks. It makes things a bit faire (for example, it was a writing task first this time, and anyone who hated that was screwed from the off).

*My other request would be to try the World Cup format again, if we could get enough people. That GGGC over at PSO felt massive.

*My final request is a few ideas for new rounds. After watching a few daytime TV quizzes recently, I have a few suggestions. Namely, that you could could do some tasks based on Pointless or Eggheads (which I know you're a fan of).

Pointless would be quite simple to implement (you could have players either playing individual or, even better I think, as a team of two). You would ask 100 people to name, for example "A Mortal Kombat character" and then we'd have to give what we thought would be the most obscure answer.

Where you asked this question would be up to you - could be your real life friends (then you could give them the 100 seconds needed to answer) or on another forum months before the competition starts (so we don't notice the results).

You'd need to tweak the questions, perhaps, to make them less Google-able, or allow Google and go for some fiendish posers. The other thing would be to distance it from the Polls of Doom - I think having two players on a team would do this.

Eggheads is one I mulled over before the competition started, perhaps expecting it to come up seeing as I know you like the show.

You could mix up the format a bit depending on what you wanted. If you had teams in GGGC IX, then you could have each team go up against a panel of "Eggheads" and trying to score points. You could run this like the show, with one player trying to knock another out, or make it a simple point scoring exercise. You could also put one team against the other, though one wouldn't necessarily be an "Egghead" team, then.

Or, you could have individuals go up against a selected panel of Eggheads - they could be 5 eliminated or past contestants, other forumites, maybe even ex-Gurus - and see how the score. It'd be a tough round, with one person against 5 but it could be something for the later stages?
