    • Ikariam OLYMPICS 2012 Contest

      Dear players,

      Starting tonight, the world is going to turn its eyes towards London, England, where the Summer Olympic Games are going to start. From July 28th to August 12th, athletes from around the world are going to compete for medals and for glory.

      If you like to compete against each other, then read the following lines.

      From July 28th to August 12th, we will organize a quiz contest. Everyday, we are going to ask you a question. You will need Ikariam knowledge, general knowledge, logic and sometimes luck to find the answer to these questions. You'll get points for every correct answer. After the last question, we will establish a ranking and give out prizes as follows:

      1st prize: Canvas with Ikariam motif + 50€ Coupon
      2nd prize: Ikariam mouse pad + Ikariam poster (A4 size) + 25€ coupon
      3rd prize: Ikariam poster (A4 size) + Ikariam fridge magnet + 25€ coupon
      4. Ikariam fridge magnet + 2 * 10 € Coupon
      5. Ikariam fridge magnet + 10 € Coupon
      6. Ikariam fridge magnet + 3 * 3 € Coupon
      7. Ikariam fridge magnet + 2 * 3 € Coupon
      8. Ikariam fridge magnet + 2 * 3 € Coupon
      9. Ikariam fridge magnet + 3 € Coupon
      10. Ikariam fridge magnet + 3 € Coupon

      Should 2 players reach the same amount of points, ranking between these 2 will be decided by coin toss.

      Additionally, we are going to make a medal ranking of all Ikariam communities based on the final real medal ranking at the London games. The 3 best communities of this medal ranking will get a 6 day event in the week after the London Olympics. So, support your nation and hope for bonuses in the game.

      We hope you'll have fun with our contest, the first question will be asked on Saturday night / morning (german time).

      Your Ikariam-Team
