Post Great Grammatical Gambit (Win Mushrooms!)

“Nobody is perfect,” is a very comfortable saying when you’ve failed at something. And Playa Games has failed at English throughout the thousands of lines of text in Shakes & Fidget. Mistakes are rarely major and many of them legitimate, as far as the computer overlords are concerned.

Excuses asides, Playa wants S&F to be grammatically flawless. For you, the fans. Striving for that goal, errors have been collected and patched as discovered and reported. It’s simply not enough. There’s too much material, too many nuances and too few manhours between the North American realms’ support team. So the support team is turning the tables, reaching out to you, the fans, for support in the Great Grammatical Gambit.

Find any kind of grammatical error in the game - be it improper capitalization of a quest or item title or facepalm-worthy spelling mistake - and submit it to the Official Submission Thread. Screenshots (HOWTO) of the errors are required. Submissions will be vetted by the support team and if accepted, you’ll earn a spot in the drawing for one of three 100 care packages. Each submission will be listed, with the user that submitted it first getting credit.

The more you submit, the more chances you have to win!

Rules & Regulations:
  • Only players on the North American realms are eligible to win.
  • Errors must have screenshot evidence of the mistake.
  • One award per player, not per account.
  • American English only (ie Color vs. Colour).
  • Only the first submission of an error receives credit.
  • If there are two errors in the same material, the same user can only receive one credit for it.
  • Contest runs from July 1 until July 31. Winners will be drawn and announced in early August.
  • Fake submission (ie making something up such as a non-existent quest title) will result in a complete disqualification from the contest. Being incorrect will not be penalized.

Please submit your discoveries to the Official Tracking Thread.
