A Visit From St. Grim: Marathon

This has been fun, but our time it grows near,
Our very last game is finally here.
But don’t worry, don’t fret, it’s a great one you’ll see,
An Eyewire favorite, we know you’ll agree.

For one day we trace in great collaboration,
To finish a cell, what cause for celebration!
If you’re good you’ll be able, at least we’ve heard tell,
To win a shirt, mug, or poster, and pick names for our cell!


8:00 AM on Wednesday 12/13 – 8:00 AM on Thursday 12/14

Swag: 1 shirt, 1 mug, and 1 poster will be raffled among the top 25% of participating players!

Complete 20 cubes – 2,000 point bonus
Complete 50 cubes – 5,000 point bonus
Complete 150 cubes – 20,000 point bonus
Complete 300 cubes – 40,000 point bonus
For every 150 cubes above 300 cubes – 2,500 points

If the cell is completed within 24 hrs, those mappers who:

  • Complete at least 50 cubes will win rights to vote on a new name for the marathon cell.
  • Complete at least 200 cubes will win rights to nominate a new name for the marathon cell.

It’s a Scythe Marathon!

Scythes, this marathon is going to work how we’ve been doing them on odd-numbered months, with SC bonuses! 

Bonus: Instead of 5,000 points for SCing 100 cubes, for a Scythe Marathon this reward doubles to 10,000! To maximize your possible bonus potential, we recommend that you first focus on tracing your fill and then starting your SC mission. That way the cell grows quickly and you hand yourself at least 30k or 50k total.

Naming: Admins will be counting every 3 SC votes as 1 cube added to your cube count for naming eligibility. So, for instance, you can trace 100 cubes, SC 300 cubes, and still earn nominating rights, or achieve the same result by tracing 150 cubes and SCing 150.
