Birthday Cake Race

Recommended Posts

Prizes from Round #1, #2, and #3 are at the Prize Hall (Event Museum Warp)

Last year, the Diversity Bakery was destroyed by creepers and we asked you to help us bake cakes for Diversity’s birthday. Everyone was so helpful that we just didn’t rebuild but now it’s our birthday again and we need more cakes!

So, we’re running the Cake Race again. Here’s how it will go:
Two teams of five players (10 total) will race to bake as many cakes as they can and get them to the table. Whichever team has the most cakes on their table at the end of 20 minutes or who fills their table first in that amount of time, wins!

Day and Time:
Wednesday, May 10, 2017
Round #1 - 7:00pm UTC - Hosted by Loubeedoo and SteelyEyed
Round #2 - 10:00pm UTC - Hosted by Merga

Please read the full set of rules and information before joining the event. If you have any questions, ask them here!

Team assignment:
Teams will be fully randomized before the start of the race
unless...
If you, as players, are able to put together two teams of 5 to play against one another, we will allow pre-made teams. This must be a unanimous decision.

We strongly recommend that you use Discord to coordinate with your teams, even if you're only able to listen in. 

Keep in mind that if you choose not to communicate with your team or to go off and do your own thing (like building a new house or seeing how far down you can dig...), you are letting your team down and putting them at a disadvantage.

Each team will be given:
- Uniforms 
- Tools 
- Weapons (PvP is off, these are for the mobs that will spawn - no one said this would be a cake walk)
- Marked chests with equipment  (if you take from the other team’s chest you WILL be disqualified)
- A space in the kitchen for your team to use and store things

Shared resources:
- The field
       - Cakes need wheat, you don’t have any of that for yourself
       - You will be getting hungry, so along with making cakes you’ll want to make sure your team is well fed
- The chickens (and their eggs)
- Bessie (the cow) 

Prizes:
- All participants will be given their player head, a special edition birthday head, some cake, and team-coloured blocks 
- The winning team will also receive payment for their hard work, in emeralds, and fireworks so that they can celebrate

Prizes will be placed at the Prize Hall at the Event Museum in SMP by the weekend. I will announce it here when they are ready.

Please read the full set of rules and information before joining the event. If you have any questions, ask them here!

When you land at the event location everyone will be locked in a relatively small space, sorry about the tight quarters!

There is a box of cookies in there for if/when you get hungry while waiting for the race to begin. You may not have these in your inventory during the race.

Please be patient with SteelyEyed and Loubeedoo or me as we get started. Most of the questions you may have can be answered here, spamming chat with your questions will only delay the start of the event.

Before leaving the landing area, hit the sign to clear your inventory.

One-by-one you will come forward to be assigned your team and get your uniform.

As soon as everyone is in uniform the fence between the set-up area and race space will open and the race officially begins!

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Due to the frantic nature of running events, if an organizer asks you to do something or reminds you of a rule, please do what’s asked of you rather than arguing. There is a time-out space for disqualified players and we’d hate to see you removed from the event over something silly.

Thank you to everyone who played, watched, or helped organize today's events. If you have any feed back about the event, please feel free to leave it here to submit it to me directly.

For those of you who missed this event, would you be interested in trying it yourself? If so, we may look to schedule additional races this weekend.

Hey Merga, I would love some more races.

Last year was a great laugh doing this!!! :P 

It was one of those moments that I won't forget for a long time... Our team organisation was a disaster but somehow we managed to win lol!!!

Thanks @Mutley - is there a day/time this weekend that would work best for you? It would be nice to coordinate as many people as possible ahead of time, this time.

Mut lived to see the after party.  Or part of it. But then fled when we mentioned "clean up". But I think even them,  had fun.
