    Second entry:
    Game name: Bow and arrow game ban.
    Game description : A user plays a game of bow and arrow when he is banned, he tries to hit a certain target about 5 times, note the board moves a little, so it’s more difficult.

    Game name:
    – arrowkeyban

    Game description:
    – a arrowkeybanned user has the chance to get out of a ban by completeing a arrowkey matching game.

    – in this game, different arrows that vary in color fly up. once they are straight overlaping the empty arrows, you must click that arrow key on your keyboard. bonuses are awarded; 1 perfect match gets you 1 point, the second perfect match straight after that gets you 2 points. the third one after that gets you 3 points AND SO ON… once you break the perfect chain, you start all over again.

    – the more hours you get banned, the higher of score you will have to achieve.

    Rhinoceros on September 16, 2011 at 5:39 am said:
    A racebanned user has the chance to get out of the ban by completing a race game.

    If you have this power and HAT power you can use a raceban pawn: (hat#rb)

    The Raceban power allows you to ban visitors in your chat and have them play a “Racing” game to get unbanned.

    The game requires you to race a computer (it gets harder the longer the ban). use the arrow buttons to move left or right. Using the up arrow allows you to move foward.

    To win you must beat the computer until the amount of races (depending on the ban time). there will be more computers racing and the amount of objects in the race will increase overtime!

    use arrows to move around to avoid objects in front of the track

    the amount of computer (other racers) you face will increase every round of the race

    Original Idea By: Rhinoceros (378200910)

    you can choose the the type of race using gcontrol like horses, cars, smilies, etc. if you both both raceban and gcontrol you can set default race and other settings.

    example of: raceban


    (horses) but other types of races can be selected

    also i am making more frame for this so if it doesnt move it means i am still building more info the gif file (animation)

    heres my entry:


    its called (footballban) (FBB)

    The idea is you have a throw a football into the football target it will basiaclly be like a madden bar kind of thing with a power bar like i will explain later in text 😉 so if you get (FBB) for 1 hour you have to get 100 points or however you want to score it so it still counts as a competitive timed game like matchban, snakeban and spaceban. The player will have a Xat Jersey with a xat helmet (just making a suggestion).You will have in the power bar part to throw the ball it will representate the power of the ball you want to make it all you have to do is hold the “mouse” down untill you want the power.

    Revelent Links like other photoos you can look at to see.


    its just like that power bar but it will be that strait one on the side,next the ball.


    its like that with a power bar and it will have targets on a football feild.

Use the left/right arrow keys to move your ship, and use the spacebar to shoot and destroy the aliens (smileys). The longer the ban, the more you have to destroy (the groups of alien re-spawn after they are all eliminated, as many times as neccessary. The smileys also move and fly around, trying to kill you).

    Game name:
    – Dodgeban

    Game description:
    – A dodge-banned user has the chance to get out of the ban by completing a dodging game.

    – Using your arrow keys on your keyboard (left and right), guide your smilie to avoid the mad smilies from falling on you. Bans that last for a small amount of time will have a less amount of mad smilies to-dodge goal. Every 1 hour ban, will have 30 smilies to dodge. If you get banned for 6 hours you will have to dodge 180 smilies. If you get banned for 3.5 hours, you will have to dodge 105 smilies.

    – After you dodge the amount of mad smilies that was set, your time will be recorded and posted on the main chat. The mad smilies though will come down at a fairly fast speed to make it challenging during game play.

    – This power should be un-limited, and the price should be around 650 xats in store.

    Ok heres my Final Suggestion im hoping 1 of my suggestions win a Prize….

    MirrorBan: Its sort of Similar the the dance one i came up with.
    Your person is standing and looking in the mirror. But the mirror Person keeps moving . And you have to copy… The longer the ban , The more moves and the faster they come at you. the slower the ban they come at same Speed but are easier like same keys and stuff.

    I do not have a pic for this game , But i asked a question about wether i could post ideas without pics. Can i still win With a good idea but without Pic?

    Also i have an add on the this idea. Levels , level 1 is easy level 2 still easy and it goes up to level 10 at Highest. so 1 hour ban is level 1. 2 hour is level 2. 3 hour is level 3. and so on..

    Thank you for reading m Idea. ID:Supermegacool (164778241)

    Game name: FollowBan
    Game description: You should follow the hat that contains the smilie to be unbanned.

    Oh dam , Someone beat me to idea of blockban. Lets just hope the rest of my ideas have a chance :-/ Good luck everyone.

  21. Josh95 says:

    Ok heres a few ideas of mine…

    1.Shoot Ban… This maybe quite hard to make but i think its kind of good.
    There could be a number of ballons that you have to pop with darts… But theres a little trick to it , for eeach 1 hour ban + u get 10 ballons so 1 hour = 10 , 2 hour = 20 however the ballons will be flying round the page…
    Idea by (Supermegacool) 164778241 Thank you.

    2. Dance ban. There could be a Person dancing and it could like say 1 to do move then 2 and mix up numbers if u miss them u miss them thats it. but the longer the ban the faster the numbers come at you and the slower the ban the slower they come at you. Idea by : (Supermegacool) 164778241 Thank you.

    3. Adventure ban. This is going to be my final idea so i hope one of these or my blockban idea wins. You could be like a Flying Penguin and u have to travel a Distance in the air , dodging obsitcules <– However u spell as u go along. The lower the ban , The slower the obsicles come at you. The longer the ban the obsticles come quicker at you… Idea by: (Supermegacool) 164778241 Thanx again.

    good luck everyone… Sorry i didnt have no pics…. I very busy at moment…

    Posting for Lizzie of xat.com/contests

    “lizzie here well i have tried to join blogs but have had no success. Heres my idea for a game ban:

    It would be called the Fishing (phishing ban)
    basically there would be powers and xats in the see and you would have to fish a certain amount within a set time.

    Hope you like the idea 🙂

    Lizzie :)”

    Ok thank you for the Reply. One more question , Did anyone else submit the same Suggestion of ban before me? I suggested blockBan , Did anyone else have tht idea before me?

  24. BigJosh says:

    Just 1 question. If someone submitted the idea of a game 1st then another did the same idea a bit later , But was in better quality (Like better drawing and stuff) Would the 2nd person Win? I just wondered because my drawing was kinda Tackyish. So i just wanted to know… Thanx.

    • xatblogs says:

      Josh, I would think “no”. If that were the case everyone could just sit back and wait for a good idea, then take that idea by simply creating better drawings, etc… I think once an idea has been suggested it should take priority over anyone submitting the same idea.

    Game name: Spot The Difference
    Game description: You’d have to look at a picture and spot the difference.

    The picture? it could be a holiday picture, like halloween-based picture for the moment, or maybe you could take Trade’s old chat backgrounds and add/take away small things, its optional, anyway i was thinking having a picture come up when you’re banned, then 3 seconds later it turns around with some changes added/taken away, you’d have to spot the difference 5 times if you’re banned for 1 hours, 7 times for 2 hours, 10 times for 3 hours, then add 2 for every hour.
    I realized, it’d be alot of trouble making so many pictures wouldn’t it? well you guys could always just have a couple pictures, (I’d recommend around 10), then add/take away things from those pictures, repeat with a different item added/taken away and repeat those 10 pictures in a random order if someone were to ban for 100 hours or something, people do that on random chats, I’m a witness 😛

    A racebanned user has the chance to get out of the ban by completing a race game.

    If you have this power and HAT power you can use a raceban pawn: (hat#rb)

    The Raceban power allows you to ban visitors in your chat and have them play a “Racing” game to get unbanned.

    The game requires you to race a computer (it gets harder the longer the ban). use the arrow buttons to move left or right. Using the up arrow allows you to move foward.

    To win you must beat the computer until the amount of races (depending on the ban time). there will be more computers racing and the amount of objects in the race will increase overtime!

    use arrows to move around to avoid objects in front of the track

    the amount of computer (other racers) you face will increase every round of the race

    Original Idea By: Rhinoceros (378200910)

    you can choose the the type of race using gcontrol like horses, cars, smilies, etc. if you both both raceban and gcontrol you can set default race and other settings.

    example of: raceban


    (horses) but other types of races can be selected

    also i am making more frame for this so if it doesnt move it means i am still building more info the gif file (animation)

    Another Idea I Thought Up is, InvadBan, The Game Is Basely On Space Invader’s, And yes Another Old Style Game We All Used To Play, And Yet Maybe It Could be Fun While You try To get Unbanned From A Chat, All You have To Do Is Shoot The Alien Invaders or In Xat You Type (inv) In A Chat And You’ll See Those, The more Hour’s The More There Is. Each Hour Contains 10 (inv) Or Alien Invader’s, And All You Do is Shoot Them, WHich Will Result To be Unbanned. Again, Thank’s For Readng, And Imaging The Idea

    2.Maybe a little asault course like Logs u jump from one another but they move.
    3.Maybe a Theme game ban. E.g , Halloween , spot the pumpkings in the picture.
    Summer , You could do Summer spot difference.

    Game description: This idea was from Fruit Slice. You must slice smileys that comes into the screen. (The smileys will be, like thrown into the middle of the screen and the player must slice it. If you slice 3 smileys in a slice you will get a bonus + 5, if 4 smileys in 1 slice, you’ll get a bonus + 10. You will be having 3 life/health when the game begins. Everytime you miss one smiley and the smiley falls back from where the smiley came from (the bottom). Minus 1 life/health.

    My idea:
    Game name: Bulletban
    Description of game: The idea is, the person who has been banned uses their keyboard to control a panicking smiley to the finish line. But, infront of the smiley, some bullets are being released. The smiley needs to dodge the bullets, and reach the finish. As the ban time increases, the finish line gets further away.

    I was thinking of a pac-ban (pacman ban)

    You would have it so the more hours you were banned, the more levels you had to beat!
    You would start with 3 lives at default, and the rest is just like regular pacman.
    It would be different, and pacman is an addictive game so alot of people would buy i think :P.
