Introducing The TrueAchievements Link Frog Challenge

By Sam Quirke, 1 month ago
It's time to earn your next Community Challenge badge! After the fantastic success of our recent Hangman event, our next Community Challenge is going to start today. It's a fresh take on an old classic — The TrueAchievements Link Frog Challenge.

Link Frog

What is The TA Link Frog Community Challenge?

Link Frog is a mashup of the Leap Frog format and the achievement linking challenge we've used previously as an Olympic Event. The goal is to link as many achievements together as possible, based on their starting and ending letters. This is a great opportunity to work through your backlog and see how just how long a chain you can create.

The Community Challenge is to make a chain of 10 or greater during the event. If you manage to string 10 achievements together, you will earn your next Community Challenge badge.

The challenge begins today, Monday March 18th at 12 midday UTC and runs for two weeks until Monday, April 1st at 12:00 midday UTC. To register, all you need to do is head over to the Challenge Hub and hit the "Register Now" button on the right-hand side of the page.

Once you are ready to begin forming your chain, click the 'Start' button and unlock the achievement you want to begin the chain with. To extend the chain, unlock an achievement that starts with the same letter the previous achievement in the chain ended with. You can find an example set of achievement in the spoiler tags below.

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Once you've unlocked the initial achievement, you'll see a box that will take you to your 'easy achievements' on both the side panel of your homepage as well as your progress page — this page will be filtered for the letter needed to continue the chain. Unlocking an achievement that doesn't add to the chain doesn't break it, it's just ignored for the purposes of this event.

There is a button to manually end the challenge which will finish your chain. If you do not manually end your challenge, it will be finalized for you at the close of the event.

The event will run for two weeks until Monday, April 1st at midday UTC.
