And of course, there will be plenty of swag to claim for our most enthusiastic campers, including special EyeWire S’mores available only during this competition!
See below for a list of all the fun activities Camp Eyewire has to offer:
Archery Accuracy Hours
Fri, July 24, 2015, 2pm – 4pm ET + 10pm — 11:59pm ET
Camp will kick off with an archery contest. Play as many cubes as you can for regular Happy Hour bonuses, plus some special bonuses for great accuracy. 80%? 90%? How close to the bullseye can you get?
**You can choose to play during either time slot. If you play during both time slots, your highest accuracy will be counted.
Most accurate: t-shirt — including limited edition Camp EyeWire shirt
Top 5 most accurate: A signed copy of Sebastian Seung’s “Connectome” + EyeWire S’more Kit
1st Place Accuracy – 10,000 points
2nd Place Accuracy – 8,000 points
3rd Place Accuracy – 6,000 points
Achieve 95% Accuracy – 5,000 points
Achieve 90% Accuracy – 3,000 points
Achieve 80% Accuracy – 2,000 points
Less than 80% Accuracy — 1,000 points
**You must play at least 20 cubes to earn an accuracy bonus.
(These bonus thresholds are non-cumulative, i.e. they will not combine. If you earn 3rd place, for instance, and presumably got over 95% accuracy, you still earn a 6,000 point bonus, not 11,000.)
Campfire Stories: “Tales of Cubes from Beyond the Crypt”
Sat, July 25, 2015, 12:01am ET – Thu, July 30, 2015, 11am ET
Join your fellow campers around the Eyewire campfire for some scary stories. We’ve all heard tales of the nefarious Evil Cubes, but are they only legends… or could these horrible monsters really exist?
Find out (and win points for accuracy) in the Evil Cubes challenge!
**There will be two sets of Evil Cubes for this competition. You only need to complete one set. If you complete both sets we will take your highest accuracy.
Most Accurate: t-shirt — including limited edition Camp EyeWire shirt
Top 5 Most accurate: mug + EyeWire S’more Kit
Participation (must complete all Evil Cubes) — Raffle: 10 mugs
1st Place Accuracy – 8,000 points
2nd Place Accuracy – 5,000 points
3rd Place Accuracy – 3,000 points
1,000 points for anyone with 80%+ accuracy who plays all 12 cubes.
(These bonus thresholds are non-cumulative, i.e. they will not combine. If you earn 3rd place, for instance, and presumably got over 80% accuracy, you still earn a 3,000 point bonus, not 4,000.)
