 What is it? 
  A meta-game with it's own score system. Participants get points for playing games and achievements from a broad themed list.

How do I participate?   

  Earn achievements from the list, complete activities. The points will be awarded automatically periodically and your score and rank will increase. Let me know in a message or discord if you want to be added.
How does the scoring work? 

  Each game in the list (below) has a multiplier.

  "Stray Cheevos": for some sets: They give a set number of points (* the multiplier). Determined by an estimation of difficulty and time to achieve.
   A mastered set is worth 400 points (hardcore 1.0 multiplier).
   Earning achievements in softcore will not yield any points.
   Balance is hard. If you think something on the list deserves more or less points, please let me know and it can be adjusted.

 Final Notes: 
  For balance's sake points and multipliers can and may be adjusted. All points must be earned though normal play, taking use of passwords or loading save files to get easy points is considering gaming the system. If there are signs of attempts to game or abuse the system it the multipliers will be re-balanced and/or the games will be disqualified or the player's points will be removed.
  A special thanks to and For helping me a lot with the ideas and help me to organize it.
