Island Games Information

Island Games involves a set number of teams (this year it will be six), whose members are randomly selected, who compete in various events over several days (this year it will be May 20th - 27th) to earn points. Teams have been created for most of the There Islands, and can be found listed on IslandGames_Avie’s profile. The 2017 Island Games will take place from May 20th - 27th. Island Games planning meetings have started, and the six teams that have been selected are:

  • Team Saja
  • Team Nada
  • Team New Kansas
  • Team Tyr
  • Team Caldera
  • Team Comet

If you’d like to participate in future planning meetings join the Island Games Event Invite List. The Island Games Invite List will also be used as the signup group.  If you want to participate in Island Games join this group.

Island Games FAQ

Who can participate in the Island Games?
All basic and premium There members are WELCOME to play!

Do I have to sign up to play?
Yes, everyone who wants to play must sign up by joining the Island Games Invite List. Once you join this group, you will be randomly assigned to one of the designated Island Games Teams.

Why do I have to sign up to play?
This is the only way to create teams that are as equal in number as possible, in order to give every team a chance to win.

What happens after I sign up to play?
You will receive an invite to the Team you’ve been assigned. In order to play, you must accept that invite.

Why can’t I be on the same team as my friend?
Good question!  In order to keep the teams as even as possible, the only way to do that is to take the sign up list and use a random team generator. Also, the idea is to meet new people and make new friends!

Is there a deadline to sign up to play?
Yes, the signup deadline is MAY 13th 2017. The deadline to accept the invite to your assigned team is May 17th.
