What sort of guild games do you play?

Anne Stickney

My guild decided to try playing a new game this week by instituting dress codes for raid nights. I know what you're thinking, but hear me out. Apparently the basis for this all stemmed from a late night round of "Auction House Roulette," the rules of which are as follows: Go to the auction house. Buy the cheapest gear available for your particular class -- do not, under any circumstances, look at the gear with the dressing room feature before purchasing. Transmog all your gear with the purchased items. If you're lucky, you'll get matching pieces ... if you're not so lucky, you'll end up with a beautifully hideous outfit.

This bout of transmog frenzy led one of the guild's officers to institute the dress code for this week's raids. The first night was "terrible transmog" night, in which we were instructed to show up in the most hideous combination of clothing we could find. Wednesday was "purplicious" night. As you can see from the screenshot above, we got a good chunk of the guild to participate, with stunning results. And on top of that, we managed our first 25-man kill of Lei Shen. I think it was the power of purple. Or at the very least, the general good mood from everyone being particularly silly.

It has been decided that the theme nights will continue, but not on a weekly basis -- either once a month, or a few times a month is more than enough. Any more than that and we'll likely run out of gold in our enthusiasm for procuring questionable fashion. Regardless, it's been a ridiculously fun week, and I'm curious if other guilds out there do silly guild games too, and what those games are. So let's hear it -- does your guild do anything fun, just for giggles? Do you have speed run races of instances, or transmog contests? What sort of games do your guilds play?
