MONTHLY CONTEST: Variety of Games

Post by cattlovrr »

Would it be possible to have one or more different games in the monthly contest? The current "standard" selection of monthly games does offer a variety of choices but it might be fun to have at least one unique game each month. Thanks for considering this idea.

Can you give an example of what you are hoping for?

Thanks, webman. Really any game (legacy or just added) would be OK in order to add some variety to the monthly game line-up. Maybe the Ultimate X Gold that just arrived on the site.

Are you referring to the Monthly Contest (which is always single hand) or the 7 Star Tournament? If 7 Star, yes... certainly UX Gold will be added there next month.

Thanks so much, Webman. I am referring to the monthly--not the 7 Star. I really enjoy this site each day and appreciate your openness to ideas. Take care.

A variety of games are mixed in as Weekly contests and for the 7 Star, but the monthly we plan to keep as single hand Game King for the foreseeable feature. A lot of people play in that contest who are not interested in the others, and vise-versa. Plus that game is far better suited for the current Monthly Contest format. In any other game, dealt winners would overwhelm the other scores (as in the weekly) whereas in the Monthly, a drawn Royal is just as good as a dealt one. It just makes the most sense for a cumulative contest.

Your explanation is logical, Webman. Thanks for explaining the rationale.

There must be something else you are not telling the public at large here, Webman, with your explanation. It is too simplified. And, are you saying at the same time, in the same keystrokes, that you can't offer ONE DIFFERENT GAME? Not a single one, once a month? Your explanation is full of holes, and is biased toward a single cereal while your kid in the basket is crying for an eight carton variety pack.

I'm not sure what you mean. We offer 30 different video poker games each month in the Daily Contest, 4 in the Weekly and 7 in the 7 Star Tourney. We also now have 4 member-selected games in the Members Rule contest. Plus the Keno contests. For the Monthly Contest, it needs to be the same game all month, and we have decided that Game King makes the most sense for the reasons described above. We know it won't suit everyone, and that is why we offer many other options for people to play at any given time.

People who want the 8 carton variety pack of cereal get the 8 carton variety pack of cereal. And people who want plain old bran cereal can have bran cereal. But we're not going to pour all 8 boxes of the variety pack into the bran cereal because that's just gross.

About that members rule contest..... I'm the "member ruling" this week šŸ˜‚,and am not seeing any comments in the peanut gallery. It's shaded out as if it's not activated?
