Upcoming event Information
Follow this thread carefully since it'll be updated every week to see when and where I'll be hosting next.

Upcoming Sweet and Elite Hide and Seek game:

Date: July 27th, 2019
Time: Saturday @ 5:00 PM EDT / 9:00 PM GMT (*)
Server: Amareicas
Location: Ponydale
Starting Area: Outside Sugarcane Corner
Game Mode: Non-stop
Host: Optic Rainfall
Co-host(s): Cogsworth Wingthrop and Wind Spray

Gameplay

  • There is only one seeker for each round and the rest are hiders. The number of seekers will vary due to the number of players. Eg. 2 for 14-20 players, 3 for 21-27, etc. (1 seeker : 7 players.
  • For each round, everyone starts off by rolling a 20-sided dice. Type in the following command: !roll1d20 to roll. Whoever gets the highest roll will become the seeker for the round.
  • While everyone is at the starting area, the host will commence a countdown in around 30 seconds after the seeker has been chosen for the round to begin.
  • Once the round starts, all hiders will have 2 minutes to find their hiding spots, while the seeker remains at the starting area.
  • When 2 minutes are up, all hiders must not move anywhere else and they must be sitting/laying/sleeping in their hiding spot so that the seekers can confirm that you're playing the game.
  • The seeker will then have 10 minutes to find all the hiders until time runs out.
  • When a seeker has spotted one of the hiders, they must call out the player's name and they too shall become a seeker.
  • When 3 minutes are remaining, every hider must give a useful hint to the seekers on their whereabouts. Don't make it too obvious.
  • The round will be over after 10 minutes are up or when every hider has been found, and everyone will head back to the starting area to begin a new round.
  • After finishing the first 3 rounds, we will all vote to stay or change locations.
  • After playing 6 rounds of Hide and Seek, I'll pick an area for where we can all take a group screenshot to finish off for the week.

Note: When the server is suddenly counting down to restart, change servers quickly. Don't go anywhere! The timer will pause until everyone is back in the game, then we can all continue playing the round.

Rules

  • No flying or teleporting.
  • All hiding spots must be accessible for Earth Ponies
  • No going into instances interiors, like the portals that shows a loading screen when entering and sends you into a seperate room. These include: Carousel Boutique, Canterlot Academy, Sugarcane Corner, The Mines, Evershade Forest, etc.
  • No changing servers.
  • No using the cinematic camera command.
  • No tagging ponies (Clicking your cursor on the players).
  • For those who know how to do the backwards jump glitch that allows you to go super fast... don't do that.
  • There are hiding boundaries on some maps that you must stay within, and you are not allowed to have your hiding spots anywhere outside the boundary lines where it is out-of-bounds. For the maps that don't have out-of-bounds areas, you are free to hide anywhere. See below of where the boundary lines are for these locations:

Spoiler: Cantermore Town/Castle and Crystal Kingdom Boundaries • show


Game modes:

Normal:
A standard game where the gameplay and all the rules above are applied.

Pegasus:
A Pegasus only game where flying is enabled, so make sure you have one. The first three rounds will take place in Cloudopolis.
All hiders must be sitting/laying/sleeping in their hiding spot, still. You are not allowed to fly while hiding.

Unicorn:
A Unicorn only game where teleportation is enabled, so make sure you have one. The first three rounds will take place in The Crystal Kingdom.

Snuggle Pile:
There is only one hider for each round, no matter how many players there are, and the rest are seekers.
The objective is for the seeker to find the spot of where the hider is and they must sit/lay/sleep in that exact spot, and not near it. The hider won't become a seeker when found and they shouldn't move anywhere for the whole 10 minutes.

Chaos:
Flying, Teleporting and the backwards jump glitch are allowed. It wouldn't matter what pony race you bring.

Jumble:
Each round can vary from how the game is played, determined by the number the dice has rolled which can change the rules or the gameplay. Specifically the following:

1 - Enable Flying
2 - Enable Teleporting
3 - Add 30 seconds of hiding
4 - Subtract 30 seconds of hiding
5 - Add 1 minute of seeking
6 - Subtract 1 minute of seeking
7 - No hints
8 - Hints at 5 minutes remaining
9 - All hiders must dance in their hiding spot
10 - Snuggle Pile

If you role the same number the next one/two rounds in the same location, add 1 to the roll.

Bounty:
As you know, at the start of each round the player with the highest roll will become a seeker. Now in this mode, those who have very low rolls will receive bounties. When a seeker finds a hider with a bounty on them all seekers will be awarded something in each round. The number the hiders have rolled determines what bounties they have, other than rolling a 9 or higher. The following are:

8 - 30 seconds added for seeking
7 - The Host becomes a Seeker
6 - Instant hints
5 - 60 seconds added for seeking
4 - Enable Teleporting
3 - Enable Flying
2 - 90 seconds added for seeking
1 - Round over! Seekers win!

Note that, if two or more players tied for seeker their next roll won't be counted for a bounty.

Non-stop: (New)
It's just like normal mode but on each two locations the game goes for 42 minutes! The game starts off with 2 minutes of hiding and 40 minutes will continue on afterwards when the first seeking time starts. All hiders must give out a hint 5 minutes after every seeking time starts, and another hint 5 minutes after. If everyone has been found, the last one hiding will become the seeker and everyone around the map will become hiders again. The seeker must stay in the spot where he/she was hiding and the game continues giving 1 minute for everyone to quickly hide in their spots (so don't go back to the starting area). Once 40 minutes are up or if every hider has been found under 5 minutes remaining, we come back to the starting area and choose a new location.

Additional notes:
  • Two or more seekers will be picked at the start by rolling the dice.
  • Players can join during the game, but they'll be seeking until everyone's found.
  • Other than Normal mode this game mode can also be combined with Pegasus, Unicorn and Chaos mode.


We will be posting screenshots down below every week along with everyone's names who has played with us in our Hide and Seek event. We'd appreciate everypony's comments and suggestions and hope that Sweet and Elite Hide and Seek™ may enhance your Legends of Equestria experience.

Wow, has it been a year already! What an i doing with my life, I mean that is great.

Seriously, I have had a lot of fun with this and meeting new people. I am glad that others have enjoyed it.

To be fair, there was a party starting, and quite a number of players were concentrated there. That is why Jet Star kinda vanished three rounds in.
