Our Festival Games
100gil Kingyo-sukui Booth ( Goldfish Scooping ) : “Each person plays individually. The basic rule is that the player scoops copperfish from a pool with a paper scooper called a "poi” and puts them into a bowl with the poi. This game requires care and speed as the poi can tear easily. The game is over when the poi is completely broken or incapable of scooping properly.“
Player will pay the booth runner then /random to see what happens, RP it out however you like!:
If Random is 499 and under their scoop breaks.
If Random is 500-799 they win a Copperfish, their scoop breaks.
If Random is 800-899 they win a Copperfish, their scoop DOES NOT break and can go again.
If Random is 900+ they win a Coral Butterfly, their scoop DOES NOT break and can go again.
This Booth will also sell Tier 1 Aquariums while Supplies last at 10,000gil (Much cheaper than current Market Board Price) for you to put your fishies in!
100gil Chō-Han Bakuchi Booth ( Even Odd Gambling ) : "The game uses two standard dice, which are shaken in a bamboo cup or bowl by a dealer. The cup is then overturned onto the floor. Players then place their wagers on whether the sum total of numbers showing on the two dice will be "Chō” (even) or “Han” (odd). The dealer then removes the cup, displaying the dice. The winners collect their money.“
Player will pay the Booth Runner choose either Cho/Even or Han/Odd to place their bet on then /random.
The Runner will then take the first two digits of the roll and add them up before revealing the results to the Player.

Ignis walks up to Penny, a comely smile on his face he's carrying a fancy decorative cake box. "So I heard you've done well on your chemistry studies my darling, I am so very proud of your success. I took time to create a special cake just for the two of us to share, I also have some lovely genmaicha tea steeping for us to sip on. It pairs quite well with the cake, let's go sit and relax you deserve to be praised." Ignis leans in giving a soft kiss to your cheek.
Wow O/////O Thank you, Ignis, for both the food and the sweet words. I’ll take you up on that break offer ^^
Okie doke! So you prefer the cold? How about winter/fall then! Do you have any favorite eats or drinks during the colder weather? ❄️ (Ps I hope all these questions aren't a bother 🤗)
osh I really love eating when it’s cold out I love spicy food like curry and hearty stews and chili~
as for drinks I love coffee and all sorts of weird and basic latte (yeah I like pumpkin spice……. a lot actually……… it tastes like fall in a cup ok!!!) but my fav is a matcha latte. I also love hot tea!! I love green tea in particular - my favs are jasmine green tea and genmaicha but I also really like earl grey, white tea, pu’er, herbal tea (barley!! dandelion root!! mint!!), and the list could really go on forever wow I’ll stop
Rule 1: Always post the rules Rule 2: Answer the questions the Person who tagged you asked and write 11 new ones Rule 3: Tag 11 New People and link them to the post Rule 4: let them know you’ve tagged them:
1) If you could go anywhere in the world, but had to spend the rest of your life there, where would you go?
I love Portland. I’d stay here or maybe at our family Riverhouse. It’s nice to live in place that people like ti visit.
2)What is one thing you are talented at?
Coming up with more ideas that I have time to finish? I’d like to think I’m good at gardening but I am concerned that the fairies are the one doing all the heavy lifting. I am good at vegan cooking and zines. I’m fairly certain those are talents I have.
3)What is your favorite kind of tea?
Genmaicha. I love the roasty toast flavor or the rice.
4)If you could learn one thing matrix style, what subject would it be? (For any that aren’t familiar, the information is pumped into your head making you an instant master, and this includes forms of physical combat)
Music. My partner thinks in music and I have always found it fascinating. For a long time I was intimidated by it, but I am finally at a place where i would like to understand it.
5) If you had to live in a house where everything inside it was some shade of one color, which color would you pick?
I love purple but I might just pick green because it would be like being in a forest.
6)If you could have any animal as a pet (it wouldn’t eat you and it would be legal) what would you have? Physical realm animals only.
I’ve always wanted to hear a lion purr.
7) If you could eat one food in an endless amount and never gain weight or get sick, what would it be?
does craft beer count? Ok ok. burritos.
8) Which fictional universe would you like to live in?
The one without the patriarchy.
9) Would you rather only be able to tell the truth or only be able to tell lies?
To tell the truth, eloquently.
10) If you were given a million dollars, what are three things you would do?
besides paying off debts, fixing my house, and living off interest? I’d pay for friends to come visit me, take trips to see other friends, and buy Paul and new guitar.
11) What is your favorite physical trait about yourself?
This is a tricky question because the answer changes and I have aged. Aging bodies are weird and you never think it going to happen to you. I’ve been told that I have really great skin for tattooing.
My questions are:
1. Who is one person living or dead that you would like to have dinner with.
3. What is your favorite city to visit?
4. What is place that you want to take people that come visit you?
5. What was your very first favorite band?
6. If you could be any animal what would you be?
7. What is your favorite flower?
8. What are your top 3 favorite things to eat?
9. Mountains, Desert, or Ocean?
10. What are three things that you can’t leave the house without?
11. When something good happens to you, who is the first person you tell? Is that the same person as the person you call when something bad happens?
Levi does not know her name, but he knows her order: green tea, genmaicha if he has it, with a splash of honey.
“Honey doesn’t splash,” he told her the first time he made her drink, sticking a long spoon into a glass jar of raw honey and allowing the sweetener to drip into the steaming brew before giving it a light stir. “It oozes.”
She looked down at him then — not an uncommon occurrence, given his height (or lack thereof, as his friends always like to add). “Then I’ll take a genmaicha with an ooze of honey,” she said with a straight face.
It automatically endeared her to him. So when she returned the next day, and the next, then again two days after that, he asked her if she would like a splash of honey with her green tea.
“Yes,” she would tell him, “but honey doesn’t splash.”
For dinner today is shiso gyoza with Central Department Store miso soup and genmaicha tea. How is it Central Department Store miso soup? Penne pasta made from black beans to represent Devil Kai’s tubes, a medley of 4 kinds of mushrooms to represent En, red miso to represent the mud of the lake of refuse, and deep fried tofu cubes to represent severed heads (or I just really like tofu).
Hey, it’s past noon on June 30 in Japan, so time to celebrate!
