Season Two : Feedback

To all players who joined us in playing Season Two.  I thank you for putting in the effort and crossing my fingers and toes that you had a little fun while you were in the game :)

I have fun making up little challenges and rules, but we are still a little fish in a big fishbowl, so there is always room for improvement.    My goal is to make each season more enjoyable than the last, which is why I welcome any or all feedback.

This entry is optional, but you are welcomed and encouraged to fill out the poll below the link, and leave any comments on this entry.

I will take player's opinions into consideration when designing future games because if anyone knows how to make this good game great, it is the players!

I would like to feedback about how much I liked the games in comparison with each other as there were some I liked more than others.

I have ticked yes to them all because I enjoyed the challenge of maybe not knowing something or not being good at something and giving it a go.

1.I loved the 'Bargain Hunter' Challenge. I would give a 10/10 it was my favourite game.
2.'Name that face' Challenge. - not so keen because on the subject, but the guessing 'whatever is in the picture' idea is good. 6/10.
3.'Sums' Challenge. - strange one this one! I really love maths, but with everything that was going on in my life that week, without the logic of only using the numbers ones and therefore making it more of a game about taking a gamble, I found it difficult. I still think its a valid, well thought out game but would have enjoyed it better if it had been a logic game. 4/10 (would have been an 8/10 as a logic game)
4.'Connect the dots' I found this challenge the easiest - but then as I said on that evening I did it, I was thankful for something easy, that took my mind of things, that didn't take up too much time. For me this came at exactly the right time when I needed it. But under normal situations I would have liked a few more larger and harder ones. I did enjoy it though. 7/10
5.'Quick Click' it was good to have a challenge in a completely new area that I had never experienced before. It was difficult and as annoying as anything, but great fun. 6/10
6.'Leap Frog' Challenge. This is sort of a no from me. It didn't end up working, but again my logical brain said from the beginning that there wasn't much point in posting anything until 15 mins or so before the end which sort of defeated the object of the game. I realised after last season that I wasn't so keen on games where you have to be there at a bang on a certain time. but I am always happy to play games that suit other people well and they enjoy! 3/10
7.'Truth vs Lies' Challenge. I much preferred this game as a final, to the popularity game we had last year. I thought it made the challenge very equal. 7/10

I thought the use of the help prizes was a good idea this season (mine came in very useful lol) and I didn't mind that I was banned from having anymore :)

And finally as someone for whom a years paid account is a lot of money, I think your prize is very generous. There are many communities where the only prize is to be able to say you won. So thank you very much for the tokens and for all the v-gifts x

First, thank you for all the time and effort you put in this game! It was really fun and you will see me in a future round. ;)

And for the games, I disliked the shopping challenge because it was very time consuming and there are just too many web shops out there. It took me several days to find everything.

My favourite challenge was "connect the Dots". As I mentioned before, I wish there were more of them. ;)

I had some problems with "Leap the Frog". Sometimes time difference can be a bit confusing. And if I would have had morning shift that day I couldn't have left a comment at the time the challenge ended.

But the game was so great. I never expected to reach the final round. Thanks for all the fun I had. ^^
