Welcome to the new and improved Thursday night experience, the Chozo Crazy 8s Game Night!
Grown out of 3 seasons of Mario Kart 8/DX tournaments, we're expanding out to include multiple games, sometimes in the same night! Smash 4? Sure! Mario Kart 7? You bet! Other things that we haven't even thought of? Most likely!
The basics are the same as the tournament:
When: Thursday nights, 8:30 to 10:00 central.
Where: Your couch. But also in Discord (check out the voice chat thread for info).
Why: Because I'm The Man, and I say so.
Speaking of Discord, as of now we'll be using the same game-specific voice chat rooms, but using the all-encompassing #chozocrazy8s text channel, rather than splitting that up between games. This text channel is marked NSFW (mostly for fun because we can, but also because Plant likes to post pictures of animals pooping, and Morgil posts ... everything else), but don't let that scare anyone away. It's just a check box that I hit in the setup, and doesn't indicate that the company behind Discord is monitoring us any less or more than they would anyway.
For anyone who's new to the Thursday night fun, just contact me or another member that you know who has access to the Discord server, and you can get an invite link. The server itself is not set up as an public server, so I won't post an invite link here.
We also have a bot, the CC8 Helper Bot, that can tell people what the upcoming Game Night events are, and keeps track of who has what games that they can play, to help decide what upcoming events will be. Don't hesitate to ask it questions, and enjoy its weekly reminders of what the current event will be on Thursday nights.
Season 4 has its first event on November 30th, and this thread will be our new home for write-ups, general discussion, and announcements. Unlike previous seasons, overall season stats won't be tracked, but for nights that we play Mario Kart 8 I'll still do basic scoring. Otherwise write-ups will recap as best I can who "won", depending on the games we're playing.
Looking forward to many fun nights to come - thanks for playing!
