With how slow things are getting in the game right now while everyone is impatiently awaiting the Cataclysm, it’s the perfect time to bolster your guild’s cohesiveness with some fun guild events! You can check out the list of fun guild events I wrote last year, or try this new one I’m adding to it:
Themed Screenshot Contests
This contest is perfect for this time of the season, because even your guildies who have temporarily suspended their accounts could participate if they’ve saved up some decent screenshots, and it can keep your guild forums active during downtime.
What you need to do is come up with some sort of theme appropriate to your guild. Some ideas are:
- Best guild moment (maybe an important achievement or boss kill)
- Best guildie mistell (because we all SS them for blackmail purposes, right?)
- Screenshot of a suggested “guild headquarters/hideout” (good opportunity to explore all the cool hidden places that might be gone soon!)
- Screenshot of “Guildiewhodiesalot” dead in some awkward/funny position or situation
If you get some solid interest, I suggest turning this into a monthly contest! Schedule the first 3 weeks of the month for submitting screenshots and allow the last week for voting. Of course, prizes are great motivators. Depending on your situation I might suggest a game timecard, a pet/mount from the Blizzard Pet Store or the right to redesign the guild tabard for the next month.
