TOGlympics 2012
 
On 4th and 5th of August 2012, we ran the TOGlympics within the Minecraft Division. This was a range of sports set up on a special TOGlympics world. Each event had its own arena, made by members during the previous week. Some were based on events seen on the Yog-Olympics and Criswelympics worlds, but none were direct copies. Players competed as individuals or as part of a team.

A map of the TOGlympics world can be found at tog.swoit.as/minecraft/mc9_toglympics , courtesy of Solutions First. The TOGlympics world is available for downloading - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/60108299/TOGlympics.zip

This thread contains a record of the world and the TOGlympics.

Day One of the TOGlympics

On the first day, after an opening ceremony involving the burning of a five colour pyramid, a shower of flowers and animated glowstones, the TOGlympic flame was lit.

Thanks to all who participated, made the events and helped run the TOGlympics. It certainly was a different side to Minecraft and new type of event for the Division. Shall we wait another four years for the next one?

Since, the forums are a big slow i took the chance to watch these. Whoever designed ping pong should be shot, with an arrow, or tnt cannon! :)

Oh, and poor chicken(s)!

Sorontar 20th March 2013 10:25 PM

Duck is to blame for the ping pong and me for the fowl hockey.
