    Hello & welcome to the (2nd) re-start of The Arena's Streak For Colors!:D I will be your new host. If you're not familiar with the rules, here they are:

    Playing this game is simple. There are no sign-ups.

    Each week, on Saturday or Sunday (or Monday), athletic (and sometimes, other random) events will be posted for the coming week. Simply pick up to one selection per day to enter. The idea is to build as long a streak of correct picks as possible. You don't need to make a pick every day, and not picking will not count against you.

    So, how do you win? And, what can you win?

    Well, there are two ways to win.

    Pick twelve correct in a row, and you win 48 hours of colors. Extend this streak, and win even more! Every time this streak goes an extra three consecutive correct picks, you add another 24 hours of colors, up to a maximum of 7 days of colors. The colors will start when you streak ends or you reach the maximum possible prize.

    The second way to win this is to get the greatest number of picks correct in a month, regardless of how many you get in a row. The user who does this will win 48 hours of colors as well. Longest single streak will be the tiebreaker.

    Please note that a tie does not end a streak, nor does it extend it.


    If you happen to amass the most ties in a month, then you win 24 hours worth of colors... however, those colors are to be determined by me. Also, if you happen to win this and the monthly colors prize, your first 24 hours of colors goes toward the tie mark.

    And that's it. Just pick one thing right every day, and you win! Get a long streak, and you get colors.




    NEW RULES!!! AWESOME!!


    -Instead of the traditional 12 correct in a row mark to win at least 48 hours of colors, the mark is now set at 9. Also, there is now no limit to how long you can win colors (ie: adios to the old 'up to 7 days' rule). What remains: More hours (24) will be added to your allotted total after each ensuing 3rd consecutive correct pick (from 9 to 12, to 15, to 18, etc...). Obviously you don't get your colors until after your streak ends.


    -Independent of the win/loss/tie record, there's a new daily form of winning colors: The 3 pick bonzana! Choose any 3 picks for a given day, and if you get them all correct, you win 24 hours of colors. There's no limit for consecutive bonzana wins. If you already have colors (either due to this game or something else), then that allotment gets extended by 24 hours (duh). You can make a bonanza pick along with your daily single pick, as what happens with the bonanza doesn't effect your daily/normal standings, streaks, etc.


    -The 24 hour color prize for having the most ties in a month remains, and it's the only prize in this game in which I choose what colors you get. And of course, the 48 hour allotment of colors for having the most wins in a month will remain.


    The game will not begin until Wednesday, September 5th, in order to have things settle a bit. What will follow in this OP (which will actually be two separate posts) are the records for all time monthly wins (there's also standings for all time ties, but that info is yet not available), and then the picks for the remainder of this upcoming week. If he's still around, Shepard492 is the winner for March & can claim his prize when mod colors become available. I hope this becomes as much of a success as it was before.
