    Compers Challenge 2018 3rd Oct 17 at 5:37 PM
    I am posting this thread now so we can have the compers challenge for next year ready to go at the beginning of January 2018 and so we are not rushing about trying to sort it out during the mad month of December Advents.

    2018 Comper Challenge.

    This year we are looking for about 40 players to take part in the yearly challenge.

    Each player will choose an easy challenge and a harder challenge.
    The first 12 compers to sign up will also choose a monthly challenge.

    Depending on how many sign up will decide how many challenges we have.

    You don't have to have your challenges ready now you have 2 months to think about those

    Next year you will only be allowed to cross off one challenge per day.

    You have until November 30th to add your name, no more names will be added after that.

    If you would like to join us next year please let us know below

    I like your choices

    Don't worry I have already been told by a certain someone to make my "hard one" a sex toy, no pun intended.

    Do you really think you could offend this lot?

    I'm in Have had a bit of a break from comping due to personal issues, but planning to get back to it this month

    Easy challenge: Win something Adults Only/X Rated

    Hard challenge: Win an Advent Calender

    Monthly Challenge: Win a Horror Movie
    Originally posted by GPark
    I am OK with that Adult only could be alcohol/kitchen knives quite a lot of comps say you have to be 18 or over to enter.
    And if others want to win "sexy" things there is no probelms with that either from me.

    Most Christmas/Easter comps run 3 month late so it should be easy to win an Advent calendar in March

    Could your monthly challenge be win a Horror Movie or Horror Book?

    A specific but very simple item will be good for a "hard challenge"

    eg Mrs Bot's Challenge is Win a Fish Slice, I asked her last night if it had to be the Fish is the Dish Fish Slice and she said no any old fish slice will do, now think about it how many fish slice comps do you see? That Will be hard to win.

    My hard challenge is win an item for your bedroom/bathroom/living room/kitchen/garden you have to win 5 prizes to claim one challenge.

    Not just win a DVD but win 12 DVDs over the year.
    Not just win a book but win 12 books over the year.
    A red quilt cover.
    A blue plate
    Win a pen
    Win a cutlery set
    Win a doormat

    So something simple but specific is just as hard to win as something that is large/expensive.

    Trouble with some of the challenges is that they are for competitions you wouldn't enter.

    The specific item ones are more fun because you have to find a competition with that as a prize.

    Am I right in thinking the challenge was for us all to complete not just meant for m to complete at some stage throughout the year?

    I picked the bathroom suite as that is what I'm gunning for.
