Summer There Games (TSG) is a huge 10-day series of competitive events in There that runs from August 19th through August 28th. Everyone is invited to play in this fun and friendly competition!

There are sixteen Name Tag Color teams that will compete against each other to conquer the 2016 Summer Games Gold medal. Events happen at all hours of the day and range from round-ups to racing to card games and so much more!

Everyone is invited to play and is already part of a Name Tag Color Team. The color of your Name Tag team will tell you which team you are on. If you’re not sure which team you are on, head over to the Summer Games Welcome Center and use the handy Name Tag sign. When you click the sign’s action tag it will tell you what team you are on. Once you know your team, sign up for your Name Tag Color Club in order to receive invites and keep up with your teammates through the group IM chat.

Keep track of the daily points your color team earns by checking the official There Games Scoreboard. You can easily find and sign up for TSG events by clicking on the “Day” listed at the top of the Scoreboard. Day 1 through Day 10 will display the different events scheduled for each day.

Choose Your Own Name Tag Color

nametag

Every avatar born in There has a Name Tag. Name Tag colors are randomly assigned as Member Accounts are created. There are a total of sixteen colors. Twice a year There Games are held in our 3-D Virtual World where Thereians join their Name Tag color team to participate in competitive events.

Each year during the Games, there is a Name Tag blackout period where Thereians cannot change their Name Tag color. This happens two weeks prior to the start of the Games and lasts till two weeks after the end of the Games. For the upcoming 2016 Summer There Games, the blackout dates will be August 5th through September 11th.

The majority of Thereians choose to participate in the Games with the Name Tag color they were born with, but some members want to be on the same Name Tag color team as their friends. There allows members to choose their own Name Tag colors for a fee of 36,000T. If you’d like to change your Name Tag color for the Games, you’ll need to make sure to do it before August 5th.

Keep in mind that your previous Name Tag color team may be sad to see you go. You’ll also need to buy a new There Games team uniform, accessories and props to match your new Name Tag color since the current There Games merchandise you have in your inventory will not change colors. Please make sure you’ve chosen the right Name Tag color as there are no refunds for switching over to a new color if you accidentally pick the wrong one.
