Would there be certain parameters for minimum distance?

If it's a lunch break, that's usually an hour? I'd say about 1.5-2 miles would work - that gives you enough time to get there and back if you're running.

On the other hand, for the full-scale version the checkpoint schedule seems to assume that people might move as slowly as a mile an hour.

I'd say answering these questions is part of how you plan the whole thing, personally.

This would be really nice for me as I can't make it to JTTEOTN London. JTTEOTN2 Norwich anyone?

I am in favour of Norwich, need people.

Why only a mini Journey? Do a full journey! Im sure you can get atleast 70 people who want to chase each other in the night!

That, would, be, awesome.

UK players in the Skype chat seem to like MK at the moment, it's good for everyone!

More then happy to set up one in MK, how long a route are we talking about?

Standard 6 checkpoints?

posted by Haberley Mead on June 1st, 2008 10:35 AM

Yup - i'm more thinking of foot-running distance type stuff. Are we takling 4 miles, 10, what?

(no subject)
posted by Tøm on June 1st, 2008 10:37 AM

No idea. I'll swiftly fail if I run no matter what distance!

How long have the others been? (roughly)

(no subject)
posted by teucer on June 1st, 2008 11:07 AM

Chicago was about seven and a half miles; I think Minneapolis will be just shy of seven.

Of course that's not counting detours to get the bonus checkpoints...

Oh my god, now I have this beautiful image of a vast international Journey to the End of the Year, allowing all transport except airplanes, with checkpoints scattered across the globe and chasers in helicopters.

The world will never live up to my dreams.

I am in favor of this. Provided, of course, that they are black helicopters.

Of course black helicopters. Black helicopters with red ribbons.

The previous statement should be repeated with a ridiculous French accent. Perhaps even while wearing a false moustache.

I'd be up for it, if you have some concept for how it wouldn't require spending way too much on transportation.

...Like, cross-country rollerblading? That could be intriguing, provided crash space could be arranged for the runners. All thousand of them.

In between cities, everyone would complete the 25 mile task!

Hm. Except I think you have to walk that one.

posted by Møuse on May 18th, 2008 5:59 PM

Brouhaha indeed.

I believe this idea may need a lot of drawing board time.

My original thought would be to set it up so that each city has an entrance point, an exit point, and a rest point. The players travel enmasse between cities, or atleast in two masses, chasers and chasees. Possibly via train as that means the original rules are still in order. Public transport and all.

I would also think that it would be wise to make it linked to some sort of charity fundraising.

Sounds like the 1908 around-the-world automobile race. Except that there will have to be 1000 participants instead of 6, and they don't get cars.

Another option which is likely more feasible is that you create a string of journey to the end of the nights where you have a smaller core team.. maybe 30-80 players playing a much LARGER game, moving from city to city, trying to survive.. and then you have players who join the game for that one night.

That way it remains an open thing for people depending on how much they have to dedicate to it. The core team can be sponsored for charity in their event.. and possibly document their journey with cameras etc.

When caught, the core team become professional chasers at the start of each journey. The idea is for the core team to work together to get as many of themselves across the "border" of each city. For everyone else involved it is simply a normal journey to the end of the night..

Sounds far more like we can actually do this..

Charlie Fish's account: Milton Keynes is creepy. Everything is so neat and regular and big and spacious and just a little bit soulless. It's like a factory for turning people into machines. Frankly, it needed some full-on tasking to brighten it up. ...
