Hello campers, and welcome to the first day of Smash Camp 2019! This is going to be quite an interesting year, and we hope that you have loved this weekend. Here, we'll tell you all you need to know and more. Before you read any further, it is important that you understand our submission guidelines.
All submissions go in the respective threads that we will create in your cabin’s forum. Entries will not count unless they are posted there. Only submissions should be placed in that thread, and you should keep all of your submissions in one post that you can edit throughout the day. All discussion should be held in separate threads or in your cabin’s Discord.
If you need an extension on the deadline for whatever reason, talk to Bossvelt and Thundawave about it beforehand. All entries submitted past the deadline will only be counted for participation points and will NOT place if it would have otherwise.
This is one of the major traditions of Smash Camp. It's time for you guys to name your cabins! Every year at Smash Camp we have each cabin come up with a name (and there have been lots already suggested!) for the cabin to identify themselves with. Think creatively and bring a great new identity to your cabin! This name will be with you for the rest of the camp in various places. The name must be appropriate.
Notice: We expect all submissions to be submitted by the cabin counselors in the submission thread before the start of Day Two.
It's an all-out war! Each cabin will start with 150 points at stake. Use fire, water, and grass moves to whittle down your opponents, aiming to get those super effective hits. The war officially begins at noon EDT, and the first submission deadline is 1 pm. Submit your actions hourly from then on. More information will be in the respective thread in your cabin.

Press X or C to jump from building to building and make a daring escape!
Flash Geometry Wars
Destroy as many enemies as you can before you get destroyed! WASD keys to move, mouse to aim. Your ship will shoot automatically.
To receive points for flash games, you must post screenshots of your ENTIRE SCREEN when you hit game over.
Another Smash Camp staple, but we've switched things up this time! You will have to solve the following puzzles to find the correct forum urls. These urls will lead to items that your cabin has to find. We're going to start off easy since it's the first day, but rest assured these will become more difficult. You will receive more instructions on how to submit your solution once you get to the correct url. Your cabin will get 25 points if you are the first to discover and present a correct link. Your cabin will also get 25 points for each puzzle correctly solved.
You are allowed to use a key, but don’t be the lazy, sad person who types this into a translator.
If you get really stuck, you can ask the leaders and crew for a hint. But beware - each hint you ask for will subtract 20 points from your 100 point bonus that will be given out at the end of the week. Once your bonus reaches 0, we will not give any more hints. So you only have 5 hints total that you can use.
Once you solve the puzzles, the scavenger hunt will continue in the way you know and love. Each individual can snap pictures of the items we ask for. Find them, either in your house or at a store, snap a picture, and get some points! We will give bonus points to those who snap pics that meet the bonus requirements. You'll receive 5 points for submissions and an extra 5 for getting the bonuses. Good luck!
- You may only take photos of these items in person, whether at your home, wherever it may be. It cannot be a screenshot or an image from the internet.
- You absolutely must take a photo of your object accompanied by a slip of paper with your username and your cabin number on it.
One of Smash Camp’s biggest attractions is our game tournaments! Starting today with Day 1, all tournaments have BEGUN! Check out the tournament threads as tournaments begin and see whom you may be paired against! Remember, all tournaments have a one Day match cycle, so you need to be on top of each match!
Once you finish your Day activities, we strongly encourage you to participate in our Side Events! Some of these will last all of Smash Camp, and some have deadlines. Make sure to read the rules and enjoy what we think is one of the coolest parts of Smash Camp!
Good luck everyone, and have a great first day of camp!
ALL SUBMISSIONS FOR DAY ONE ARE DUE IN THE RESPECTIVE THREADS BY 11:59 PM EDT.
