This event uses a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style where you get to choose the games that you play so long as they fit within the theme of the board. It also features community goals that will unlock power ups and other bonuses to aid you on your journey! Each month will feature a new map with multiple nodes and paths between the nodes, similar to a railroad system which connects station nodes with paths of railway. Each board will host a theme for the month with challenges related to that theme. Players will be given a starting point and a goal. In order to complete the board, they must reach the goal node. Some maps may have the same starting point/goal while others may have randomized starting points/goals. Once a board is revealed at the start of the month, it can be played at any point for the remainder of the year. Every 3 months, a break month will be added to give players time to catch up on previous boards, however, there may still be an opportunity to earn a power up during those months! To aid you on your journey, power ups and shortcuts can be earned by completing community challenges on each board. Power ups may only be used on the board group in which they are earned. This means that powerups obtained on boards 1-3 can only be used on boards 1-3. Same with those earned on boards 4-6 and boards 7-9. 🎟️ Ticket Reroller - Replaces your existing starting point and destination with a new one. 🚉 Station Skipper - Allows you to skip a node without completing its objective. 🗝️ Skeleton Key - Guarded by fiendish villains, this special key unlocks a shortcut on an upcoming map. All participants will start with one 🎟️Ticket Reroller and one 🚉 Station Skipper to get them started. Participants that clear at least 3 boards will earn a 🥉 Bronze event badge! Badge upgrades are available for completing 6 boards (🥈 Silver) and 9 boards (🥇Gold). General Rules: 📌 Players may play any unlocked boards in any order they choose. 📌 Gamer tasks submitted for one challenge cannot be reused for another challenge. 📌 Developer tasks completed for one board may be used on a different board. 📌 Low effort/free points games are not eligible for credit unless specified. 📌 For hub related challenges, the game must be in the hub to be eligible. If the game fits the hub, add it to improve the site! Hub addition requests can be sent to the #site-cleanup-forum in Discord. 📌 The progression system will be used to determine “Beat” conditions for each game. If a set does not have progression, raise it to the event team for investigation. 📌 If a player has completed all the possible goals for a challenge, they will receive free credit. 📌 Achievements earned or games beaten/mastered any time after the challenge is revealed may be used to complete challenges. You may use a game you started before the challenge was announced as long as you have not yet completed the task. Resetting a single achievement to use as credit for beating or mastering a game is not allowed. 📌 Players must submit challenge completions to the forum topic for validation. 📌 One Alt account is allowed. Please declare it when you first use it. 📌 All achievements must be earned in Hardcore mode, as required by other community events.

After defeating Bowser at his castle in Antarctica, you step into the warp portal to return home. You emerge from the portal and find yourself in a strange land with a large tower in its center, shrouded in darkness. Princess Zelda has asked you to raise an army to assault Ganon in his tower. She provides you with a magical train that recharges each time you beat a game, but only if you recruit a specific type of hero! Start your journey at a random location provided by the event team. Reach your destination to recruit the legendary Hero of Retro and return to Ganon’s Tower to stop him! Or you can team up with friends to take him on yourself. Board Theme: [Central - Protagonist] (Hubs) & Heroes Node Challenge: Beat any game featuring a protagonist that matches the node OR Develop a game featuring a protagonist that matches the node Starting Point: Players will be given a random starting point Goal: Travel to a random node given to you by the event team and then return to Ganon's Tower (Wildcard) at the center of the map. Side Quest: Ganon holds another skeleton key, but has secluded himself in his tower. Unlock access to his chamber by restoring power to the four temples in Hyrule. This can be done by restoring power to each temple by clearing its node. The temples are located on the following nodes: 🔆 Light Temple - Witch/Wizard Node 🔥 Fire Temple - Female Node 🌳 Forest Temple - Child Node 💧 Water Temple - Knight Node You may split your quest with up to 3 additional event participants, allowing each party member to tackle a different temple. Each participant may only join one party. The side quest can be completed before or after clearing the board. Community Bonus: Restore power to each temple 25 times Rewards: Unlocks 1x Ticket Reroller and 1x Station Skipper for all participants. All participants acquire Ganon’s Skeleton Key. Board Notes 📌 Due to Princess Zelda's support at Ganon's Tower, ANY game, including [Misc. - Free Points Seal of Approval] (Hubs) , may be used to clear the Wildcard node! 📌 The Warps are one way. You may warp FROM a temple to Ganon’s Tower, but you may not warp TO a temple from the tower. 📌Protagonists must be playable characters. Party members can be considered a protagonist for the purpose of this event, but should not be added to the hub unless they are the main character. 📌 Only one Skeleton Key can be earned on this board. Clearing both the side quest and the community bonus will not grant additional keys. 📌 You must beat a game on both the starting and destination nodes, in addition to the nodes in between. 📌 When backtracking to a node you cleared earlier, you must beat another game in that genre. 📌 Nodes do not need to be completed in order, but it is encouraged! Updating Game Hubs 📌 When a game needs to be added to a hub, please add all relevant hub info like missing genres, themes, perspective, protagonists etc; along with adding all the necessary language hubs that are supported on the listed hash(s). 📌 All hub update submissions should list the hub numbers, separated by a comma. 📌 Do not bloat the page with unnecessary hubs. The page should not have both 'Platforming, 2D Platforming' or 6 different protagonist hubs listed. 📌 Try to use the existing hubs. If there is a strong argument for creating a new hub, please it can be put under consideration. 📌 If anything is unclear, please ask an Events or Cleanup team member for clarification.

Over 50 participants stormed Bowser's Castle and gave him a good thrashing. All participants will be given a 🎟️ Ticket Reroller and a 🚉 Station Skipper. All participants have also been given a mysterious old 🗝️key which Bowser hid in his castle for safe keeping. Surely this will be useful on your journey! Also, after careful consideration, we've made a change regarding the use of the power ups. Power ups may only be used on the board group in which they are earned. This means that powerups obtained on boards 1-3 can only be used on boards 1-3. Same with those earned on boards 4-6 and boards 7-9. This change is to allow more flexibility in the types of powerups and maps in later sections of the event. It will also ensure that later challenges do not need to be extended to account for participants hoarding power ups all year and turning them in for a free pass on Board 9. Thanks for your understanding! January - Board 1 - Ticket to the World https://i.imgur.com/ckVun4d.png ← Check here for a bigger image! Where in the world is Mario? Bowser has invaded Earth, but Mario is nowhere to be found. It’s up to you to find Mario and put a stop to Bowser’s evil plans. The invitation you received in the mail contained a special ticket that allows you to travel across the globe. The ticket recharges each time you beat a game, but each station master will only accept a particular genre! Start your journey at the station closest to you, or start at a random location provided by the event team. Reach your destination to rescue Mario!
