The point of the Wild Card tag is to reproduce a similar photo of an object or place that can be found in many different locations around the world. Much like a scavenger hunt, examples include specific street signs, a railway crossing with train, yourself at a toll booth with receipt, etc.... Get creative


The Ducati.ms Tag Game Rules:
  1. Locate a similar item that is identified as the current tag and take a picture of it and your motorcycle together. There MUST be a picture that has both the tag and your motorcycle in it.
  2. You MUST ride to the tag. The intention of the game is to get you out and riding.
  3. Post your picture to the thread to claim the tag. First person to post an acceptable picture is now the new tag holder and gets to make the new tag. Now go out there and get it so the game may continue!
  4. Make the new tag and post it. Be specific, but not so specific that no one else will be able to play because we couldn't find another pink school bus. Try to place the tags in interesting locations, objects or places that could probably be found in at least the majority of the planet. This is an international game.
  5. New tags MUST be posted the same day as getting the old tag. If a new tag is not posted within the time limit, the tag reverts back to the old tag.
  6. One tag at a time within the thread. File photos are NOT permitted. You may not post that picture you took on your vacation last year.
  7. Should the tag be so ridiculous that no one is able to reproduce it, it can be voted down if a majority of the active participants feel it necessary.
  8. If a tag has not been claimed in 10 days, anyone can start a new tag. This will keep an accidentally hard tag from killing the game and if there's a loss in attention for some reason, anyone can restart it.
  9. Decisions are determined by majority. The current tag holder can identify their intentions with the tag and voice their opinions on acceptability, but it is the majority of players that make the final call on any decisions.
  10. No whining. There are plenty of folks here that will help you understand the rules.
Remember, the point of this is not to "win" the game, or to get a better picture than the guy who just Bruced you (look it up), the point is the ride. On that note, if someone tags a post office, rather than get out and ride a block to my local post office, I might ride an hour or so out to the historic post office a few towns over. Make it interesting. Have some fun.

New tag: Your motorcycle and breakfast.

I'm involved with at least three tag games at ADVRider and they are a blast!

I tried to start region specific tag games here in the regional section but it went over like a lead balloon. Maybe a more general "Wild Card" game like this would work better.

I have to place an Empire State tag tomorrow...I'll be looking for a pontoon boat on my travels!

*edit* Can a non-Ducati motorcycle play?

Chuck, can you move it to chit chat and then everyone can play! :D

This section gets a lot more traffic...lets wait till the game gets legs. I'm afraid it'll get lost beneath all the "What Did Metalhead Do Today" threads. ;)

photo tag game - Down Under in ?

I'll join this if it gets up and running.

Only small dinghies and yachts close by me here, but that will qualify right?

If it's a dinghie with a mast you're golden!

It's up and running...it's success depends on whether you play or not.

wouldnt instead of having to meet the previous post and then also take the new picture. would it make more sense to just try to take the new picture that the last person requested.

like instead of chuckracer having to find a pontoon boat, then him taking the new pic with the tall ship and requesting that be the new item. so the next person would have to take a pic of the tall ship and then post a pic of the new request. wouldnt it be simpler of the new person to just take the pic of the tall ship, and say what the new request is?

or am i overthinking it?

It would be easier, but not challenging nor as fun without the new pic.

The person that satisfies the old pic has to get his bike to the new tag as well - not just declare it.

It's been pouring rain or I would have been out to take a picture of a boat with a mast - I spent a number of years racing sailboats (E Scows).

not over thinking. Many play that way. The whole goal is to get out and ride and see different things, and thus taking two photos. I have done 150 miles in a day to get a photo of something! Its fun!

Tomorrow I am going to try and find a boat with a mast!

Oh, there's a very impressive "tall ship" in town at the moment actually. Only issue is that it's moored to a boardwalk on the riverfront with restaurants and the like as a tourist attraction. Surely the police will not mind if I ride the monster down the footpath along the river lane-splitting between pedestrians so long as it's all in the name of the mighty DMS!..

All in all, seems like a fun thread idea. I live in a city with a river in like half the suburbs so I should be able to scrounge something up, if I'm not beaten to it!

+1 We need a pic of the new quest w/the bike.

Something much smaller then...something in a bottle perhaps.

"Tall" is more of a descriptive term than a size reference. ;)
