Speaking of events . . .

The VMK staff are working on a special event. It's far too early for hints, but we're pretty excited about it.

Awards and Top Players

Check out this week's Best Guest Rooms and Best Game Rooms.


Best Guest Rooms

jentink delighted us with her jewel of a room called jentink's sweet heart room.

It seems such a simple statement, and yet it is both clever and amusing how wysp gets the point across in Expedition : Status - Send Help .

Magic seems to have found a home in VMK, at least in hortonlife's magic show. Players in the audience go wild for the talking bear. You have to see it to believe it.

Best Game Rooms

cpanc came up with interesting twist on an old favorite in Mouse Trap @_@. Players race around the room and try to avoid having furniture drop on them. Don't hide from the tent though - it's the only safe spot in the room!

In Frozen Board Game room designer TheETicket has created a fun board game where the owner spins generator while 4 players try to be first to the pirate's chest at the end.

VMK Staff Profiles

Each week we interview a different member of the VMK Staff. Pay attention - the answers may prove useful in VMK-hosted trivia games!

Mod name: VMK_Conga

Three favorite pieces of furniture, and why?

  • The Tiki Fountain, because I like fountains and waterfalls - and I like all Tiki stuff, too.
  • The Teacups chairs. They remind me of Fantasyland and when I was a kid.
  • The Chernabog Rug. It really stands out. I was amazed and surprised this was created, as it's the last thing I would have thought of, but Fantasia is one of my favorite films, and I love telling players what inspired the rug.

Favorite type of Guest Room?
I like the ones set up to look like the time of year or an upcoming holiday. It's amazing what some players think up using VMK items to match the season.

Best VMK moment?
The time I walked into the same room two other staff were in. The players were so thrilled to see three of us together, and it was nice to be able to talk to all of them as members of a team. With just one or two of us together, they don't get to see how well we work together.

Favorite place to hang out in VMK?
I like sitting on a bench in Town Square so I can "listen" to what players are saying and watch them go in and out of the park and the Emporium.

If you could wear a different outfit, what would it would be?
Probably the space suit. I've always liked Tomorrowland.

What one safety tip would you like to share with our readers?
Keep your hands and arms inside the game at all times and stay seated please. Seriously, if you go to another player's room and they demand you pay an item in your inventory to play their game, and if you are not comfortable with doing that, don't complain and don't pay. You can always go somewhere else in VMK and have just as good a time.
