Games in Semos

Gambling in Semos Tavern

Participants
Ricardo, he runs the gambling table
Location
Semos in the Inn at the table
Stake
100 money
Short introduction
Nice prizes wait for you in the Semos Tavern when you visit Ricardo there. He is the only person in Semos who is licensed to offer gambling activities. That is why you can of course trust him while playing on his table. If you are a gambler and curious about how lucky you can be, try that little game out and you will maybe win lots of useful items.
Rules
The rules are simple: just tell Ricardo "play" when you want to try your luck, pay the stake (costs see above), and throw the dices on the table. The higher the sum of the upper faces is, the nicer will your prize be. If you want to relax while hanging around with some friends for example, that game will be the right place for you.

There is a best maze runners list in a book on Haizens table... If you want to join that Hall of Fame, you have to be fast! It makes a lot of fun to run through these huge corridors!

Games in other areas

Wishing well

Participants
There are neither other players nor other NPCs involved, just the fortune of the challengers
Location
Wishing wells are positioned all over the huge world of Faiumoni. Look out for the coloured sparkles on stone wells.
Stake
30 money per wish
Short introduction
Quoted from wikipedia.org:

A wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe wells where it was thought that any spoken wish would be granted. The idea that a wish would be granted came from the idea that water housed deities or had been placed there as a gift from the gods, since water was a source of life and often a scarce commodity. (...)

As you can read here, the story of wishing wells goes back to a time in which mystical legends and strong belief in magical things took place. The habit of throwing money into wells is still popular in our times. That is why some people think about some wishes before throwing some money into the water. Although you can not speak your wishes out to the well here, you can be very lucky and find some nice items which you can use later on your huntings and adventures.
Rules
The only rule you have to follow is: stay patient while doing a wish in front of a well... It needs some seconds to find out, if you were lucky and found something useful or if you weren't successful this time. And here is a little hint for you: As though it is a game about fortune, you will have better chances for gaining some items from the well when you own a positive karma or a lucky charm or at least both...
Prizes
There are lots of items which you can find while doing wishes to the well. Possible items which you can get are:
money
potion
antidote
greater potion
wood
present
cherry
sandwich
horned golden helmet
dark dagger

Special games: Semos Mine Town Revival Weeks

Tic Tac Toe

Participants
Paul Sheriff
Location
The Tic Tac Toe game is currently not online but Paul Sheriff may bring it up again during the Semos Mine Town Revival Weeks.
Stake
No stake
Short introduction
The Tic Tac Toe game took place during the Semos Mine Town Revival Weeks in the north of Semos, close to the entrance of Semos Mines which Paul Sheriff, the tic tac toe gambling master, brought up after came into town last year during the Revival weeks.
In case you don't know the story, in 2006 Susi was captured on her way back from the Semos Mine Town revival party. She was missing for two years and there was no party during that time - all of Ados searched for her. In 2008, she was found aboard a pirate ship by players who had been defending Ados from a pirate attack. Now all heroes are celebrating that day each year.
Rules
The goal of Tic Tac Toe is to be the first player to get three in a row on a 3x3 grid. The competitors have to move tokens in the form of a X and of an O.
X always goes first.
Players alternate placing Xs and Os on the board until either one player has three in a row (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) or all nine squares are filled.
If a player is able to draw three Xs or three Os in a row, that player wins.
If all nine squares are filled and neither player has three in a row, the game is a draw.
Prizes
There are no prizes for that game,it is just there for fun :)

The nine switches game took place during the Semos Mine Town Revival Weeks in the north of Semos, close to the entrance of Semos Mines. Maltos, the nine switches gamemaster, showed up during the Revival weeks in 2010 and positioned his game for players on the ground.
In case you don't know the story, in 2006 Susi was captured on her way back from the Semos Mine Town revival party. She was missing for two years and there was no party during that time - all of Ados searched for her. In 2008, she was found aboard a pirate ship by players who had been defending Ados from a pirate attack. Now all heroes are celebrating that day each year.
Rules
The nine switches games can be played by only one player.
You have to talk with Maltos first, he will give you a short introduction into the game.
You have one minute time to solve the little puzzle. The goal is it to bring all of the arrows to the right side.
Rightclick and "use" the arrows to move them. Take care: You don't move only one arrow while using it, the ones around of this arrow will turn as well!
If you solve the riddle during a minute, Maltos will give you a really sweet reward.
Prizes
You will get a really sweet looking balloon (there are different random chosen colours for yours :) )
Specials
You can repeat the nine switches game so often as you want and can change the colour of your balloon with that.
