Fri, 07/21/2017 - 6:15pm by andrewjmac

WHY, you may ask, do we here at Summer Game Headquarters (SGHQ) have STARS IN OUR EYES? We're so BLOWN AWAY at you STELLAR players and the SUPREME STARPOWER you've shown us so far in Summer Game 2017!! Want to know just how STELLAR is STELLAR? Then let's get out our telescopes and take a look at the ASTRONOMICAL numbers you've all racked up so far:

6,037 PLAYERS have received

50,407 BADGES and entered

310,980 CODES to earn them

104,819,074 POINTS!


Since you are all doing such a STELLAR job, we thought we'd give YOU a way to start seeing stars like we are! How will we do that? WITH THE PREMIERE OF THE STAR MASTER SERIES, THE FIRST OF THIS YEAR'S CONTRIBUTOR'S TROPHIES!!! Just rate your way through everything you've ever read, watched, and listened to to make your way to the coveted title of SUPREME STAR MASTER!!

But don't worry, we didn't get so lost in STARGAZING that we forgot to make a whole CONSTELLATION of other badges to keep you busy all night long! What ELSE have we got? Keeping with this week's theme, we've got an all-new Ann Arbor Stories badge all about ANN ARBOR'S ASTRONAUTS! There's DESSERTS and DESERTS! REBOOTS and BOOTIES! AND we've got FLAGWAVERS, the very first Level 4 badge of the year that will REALLY teach you what a Level 4 badge is all about!

With a little luck and a lot of ratings, you could ROCKET up to the top of the leaderboard! Now get out there and SHOOT FOR THE STARS!



Can I work on badges from previous years and have those points go towards my current game shop balance?

We love the summer game, but the skylines badges have turned out to be a terrible frustration. Way too much time walking, driving for all three with no obvious places to get the elevation needed. Feeling annoyed by these.

I'm stuck on the first code of the Flagwavers badge. I think the word I'm looking for is S*******e, but when I put that in as the code, it's not recognized. Any hints?

Edit: Whoops I forgot to search it in the catalog.


Last year for the Sight Lines badges, I waited until the badges had been out a while, compiled all the hints given to frustrated gamers in the comments, and then tried to do them. They were still difficult at times, but the extra hints definitely saved me some frustration.

Re: Skylines Badges. I don't know if you have figured out the commonality between them, but if you're downtown often you may be able to pop in on the locations and get the codes when you're in the area. As for finding the right locations, I used Google Maps to try to figure out where the angles would come from and found that to be very helpful in narrowing down the likely suspects.

oh, and by the ways, (strong933), (weird 473)<-- I don't exactly remember.

I'm having trouble with the last code of the Flagwavers badge. I think I decoded it correctly, but I don't seem to have found anything. Any help?

@ sharmas

You're looking for a "location" (not a country or city, but more specific - two words).


If you haven't figured it out yet, the Wikipedia article for peace symbols is helpful. The words you need to search for are where the march started (T--- S---).

Some great badges and events, this year. Keep up the great work SGHQ! I loved the hike with NAP. We heard a screeching hawk asking mom for dinner and saw a hummingbird.

was an item with a code removed from the catalog? I'm working on the Flake Fun badge, and for the first clue I searched the body part in question (b****) and got 31 results, but the only one with a code didn't go with this badge! I also tried entering the body part as a code, which wasn't recognized.

(never mind - the body part was b****s, not b**** :) )

Oh my GOSH the clues for Flagwavers about killed me!!!! Way to make it hard (in the best way)!!!!!

Getting a chunk of points and a badge (or several) when the Contributor's Badges drop is always a nice surprise. Bring 'em on!

Is there a badge relating to the eclipse this coming Monday? If so, I missed it...

Everyone, please feel free to add me as a friend -- my friend code is: SWEET646

I was also super stuck on 4th clue of flake fun badge. Thanks for all the helpful hints!!!!!

Help with the Top Ten Astronauts gadge? I've listened over and over for the last name of the man whose image is on the Golden Voyager Record. I hear "Ed Weiss Picture?" Weitz Picture? Weiss Pitcher? Hyphenated? Just Pitcher or Picture or something else? Googled and don't find any names anything like those associated with the Golden Record. Ugh.

I'm experiencing premature sadness in the knowledge that all this fun is going to end very soon :(

I agree! I wish the Summer Game wasn't played over such a short duration every year...

[ { friend code: SWEET646 } ]

Not getting the fourth code for Haint Misbehavin'.
The hint N-L-G is not bringing anything up. Please help.

Trying to catch up with badgess. Totslly stuck on third clue of Overly Offensive. Tried every version of S****** F****** and NOTHING!!! So frustrating! Please Help! Time is running out!


I hope you see this before midnight! If you are searching only "s-- f'--" with materials set to "video" the item with the code is in results 30-40. BUT, if you append that materials type word to your search terms it's the first result! Hope that helps.

@ keebs23 I Sadly did not read your clue in time but thank you for helping find the answer! Never has a clue been so elusive! I swear I even tried the solution and it didn't work. But thank you for helping me sleep better at night. :)
