Game

The game works as follows: one player uploads a screenshot. This will be displayed only covered. Every day one part will be removed so you can see every day more of the screenshot.

The other players have to guess where the screenshot was taken by selecting the nearest waypoint. Once a player guessed right he earns points, the more points the more parts are still covered. So a player can earn between 1 and 17 points. A player can guess every 10 hours at most.

The player who guessed right has to upload the picture for the next round.

The player who reaches %d points first, wins the game.

Winnings

Every player who ever guessed counts as participant of the game, even if he never guessed right. When a player reached at least %d points every participant has to pay the winner the amount of one gold. So the winnings are the higher the more players take part.

Take Part

You have to be registered to this site and the administrator must give you the right to upload files.

Rules For Screenshots

It's only allowed to take screenshots in not instanciated regions, so not in dungeons or in the personal story quest and things like that. And of course a player has to be able to solve the riddle when he sees the whole screenshot. So just don't make close-ups of daisies or the sky but include enough of the environment so that the players get enough hints for the correct solution.

Screenshots

If you have won a round you have to upload your own screenshot. To do so, press [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [H] in the game to fade out the interface. This is important so that nobody can see your minimap and other hints. After that press [prtscr] (over [ins]) and the screenshot is done. You can find it in your home directory in the subfolder Documents\GUILD WARS 2\Screens. (e. g. C:\Users\Arne\Documents\GUILD WARS 2\Screens) Please do not resize or convert the images to another format before the upload. Don't forget to select the nearest waypoint, so the winner can be determined automatically.
