Polygon Daily: Off-Topic Intergalactic Dice (Tue 22/1)

Welcome to Polygon Daily. What is this thread you ask? It's your daily Community Off-Topic thread where you're given the floor to talk about anything that's caught your eye over the past 24 hours. Just be sure to stick to the Polygon Community Guidelines, and we'll be peachy.

Thursday's header was from Jewel Master released on the Sega Genesis\Megadrive. Congrats to those of you that guessed correctly! I can still recall many of the tunes from this game, despite not having played it in about a decade. When I was younger, I also loved the whole idea of mixing elemental rings together to get different spell effects.

Talking with Shaun, we've decided to remove the "no cheating" rule, to give this a bit more competition. So if you can do something fancy to get your answer, have at it. There'll be games for the Polynaut with the most correct guesses at the end of the month.

Here's the rules:

  • Place #PDGuess in front of all your guesses. This also allows you to append your guess to the end of a normal comment. Keep in mind, we will be searching ONLY for #PDGuess when we do our search, so it's imperative you put this tag in front of your answer.

  • You only get ONE guess, so make it count. If you guess multiple times, only your first guess will be counted, even if you get it right later on.

  • Guesses will be taken up until the next Polygon Daily is posted.

  • At the end of each month we will tally up the scores and see who has the most points. The Polynaut with the most points at the end of the month, wins.

  • I won't tell you the answer until the next Polygon Daily and I won't be giving any hints. Not even Shaun knows the answers to these headers. You guys can work together with this, as it's not the first person who gets the right answer gets a point, but each person who gets it right that day. However, at the end of each month... THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.
