Video: “Can’t Stop Tutorial“
Last week, I learned how to play Can’t Stop in Second Life. Last night I was #9 in the world rankings.
In the middle of August, when I started playing En Garde in Second Life, I set a goal of ranking in the top 100 players. That happened some time ago, but last night and this morning, I’ve been ranked in the top 20.
October 28, 2010--Ranking in En Garde Top 20
As I’m writing this post, I’m ranked 15th. I certainly never expected to be doing so well.
I don’t know how it happened, but as of this morning, I’m at the top of Renaissance Island’s Local Champions list:
Renaissance Island's Local En Garde! Champions
I haven’t played again since I posted about winning my first game.
Since I watched the “En Garde! Tutorial” video earlier this month, I’ve joined the Renaissance Island team and played four games. Last night I finally won:
First Win at En Garde!
After winning the game, I was ranked 502nd (out of 657) with 71 points:

Though I haven’t played again since last night, this morning I’m ranked 485th with 75 points. I guess some people who were ranked ahead of me have lost since then.
I used the Snapshot function in Second Life to take the first picture and Jing to capture the screenshot for the second. I then used Fireworks to blur my opponent’s name in the first (to protect her identity) and to highlight my name in the second.
As promised, here are pictures of Floria’s Retreat as it is currently furnished and decorated:

Needless to say, I may make some changes in the future. If I do, don’t be surprised to see pictures posted here in my blog.
