Kingdom: Gardens, Chapel, Scout, Fishing Village, Herbalist, Peddler, Fairgrounds, Trader, Envoy, Swindler, !Platinum

Challenge: End the game.

Okay, so here's how this goes. I have a list of goals to reach, each of which is worth some amount of points. PM your logs to me. I'll figure out how many goals you satisfied. At the end, whoever has the most points wins.

Do you get to know what the criteria is? No.
Is this completely arbitrary? Yes.

Basically, think of this as me attempting to translate Bastard Mafia into a Solo Challenge.

This only works if people actually submit logs, so please just mess around and send stuff to me. Deadline is Monday, June 2, 12 PM PST.

Are we at least allowed to know how many criteria there are? Am I shooting in the dark for one of five different goals or one of fifty?

If this is the Bastard Mafia of Solo Challenges, you'll get to know nothing and You'll like it.

I'm still unsure what the deadline should be on this.

Young Nick: The great thing about this is that I can make stuff up along the way. There are 10 right now. There are certainly going to be more than that by the time of the deadline.

Sorry for being snarky. I meant that June 2nd was around a month ago. :)

Wow I am terrible with dates.

Tell you what, the deadline is June 2nd of next year. But I'm going to actually calculate stuff before that.

So anyway, I got 3 entries.

I'm pushing the deadline to June 3rd of next year because of the forum downtime.

I really don't want to triple-post this, but I don't have much of a choice in the matter.

In 3rd place is Schneau, who scored 11 points.
In 2nd place is Tdog, who scored 12 points.
In 1st place is shark_bait, who decided to take initiative and submit 3 logs instead of 1. I averaged out the scores between the 3 games, which turned out to be 16 points.

sjelkjd got 6 points because I barely rewarded Gardens at all.

So, basically, resigning on turn one would have won you the challenge.

Resigning after spending over 50 turns doing lots of random stuff that was not at all apparent would have given you the most points. I hadn't bothered to figure out the maximum points yet.

Would I have gotten the vowel bonus? "Y" is sometimes a vowel, but in this context, it isn't really. I propose you retroactively add one more criterion:

isotropic name begins with a letter that can be seen as a vowel or consonant: +1000 points

This puts the date at July 5, 2012    i.e. today

I applaud you for getting the most points possible using the criteria, but part of the challenge was doing the games without knowing the criteria for scoring points.  This is where the comparison to the Bastard mafia games comes from in which no one has any idea what is actually going on. ;)

shark_bait, the deadline is June 3rd, 2013.

However, all posted criteria is now null and void, so now you get 0 points. Yay!

Hmmmm... Let me think a second, you're making this so hard.  But I have a solution!

If I participate in Galzria's Back to the Future Challenge, thus utilizing time travel, I can go forward in time to June 4, 2013.  I will steal the almanac of "Bastard" challenges that you do along with any changes you make to them.  Then, when I return to present day, I will present myself with this almanac thus ensuring my rise to power in the world of bastard solo challenges making myself supreme dictator with every other person a subject of mine!  *insert diabolical laughter*
