maybe we could mention something about the World Games having at one point absorbed the "Pan Army Dragoons Challenge". This would explain the presence of the more martials events.--Marc Pasquin 07:19, 17 February 2006 (PST)

Locations

Before we fill it out completely, would at policy of rotating between all continents had been adopted at one point ? --Marc Pasquin 06:03, 18 March 2006 (PST)

Seems probable to me. Sectori 13:59, 10 December 2006 (PST)
However, looking at the schedule of games, it seems that there is no continental rotation, although there seems a general rule not to have consecutive nations in close proximity to one another. Sectori 18:09, 15 September 2007 (PDT)

In 1982 Western nations boycoted the World Games held in Moscow. Was it due to russian invasion to the Moghul National Realm two years before? If it was, did the Moslem nations also boycoted these World Games as protest against same invasion?--Pedromoderno 08:09, 29 February 2008 (PST)

Events

Does anyone know what events were in the '04 Olympics in the "real world"? I know sailing, for one, isn't on the list. Sectori 13:59, 10 December 2006 (PST)

2015

Also, what's the system for the assigning of a location for the Games? Is it like the "real world" Olympics? If so, who's bidding for 2015? Sectori 16:08, 25 March 2007 (PDT)

it as been pretty much the equivalent, yes.--Marc Pasquin 18:47, 25 March 2007 (PDT)
Well then, I imagine that various national chapters would be getting set to bid for the location of the 2015 competitions. In that case, who's bidding (and for which competition)? Sectori 12:37, 26 March 2007 (PDT)
Free Lithuania issued bids for winter games in Voldemaravas (with some games in Smetoniškis). Many people doubt Free Lithuania would be able to organize a good games. Free Lithuania previously also attempted to bid for summer games in Naujasis Vilnius but the bid was immidietly rejected on the basis of city not being under Free Lithuanian control.

Other Sports

Can we add more sports to the categories? Misterxeight 14:03, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

I don't see why not, myself. Which ones do you have in mind? Zahir 14:42, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Just martial arts really, maybe marksmanship also. Misterxeight 16:08, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

I'd like to see gymnastics added to the list. Caeruleancentaur 22:12, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
And maybe one or two equestrian events? I'm not suggesting buzkashi, mind. Geoff 10:22, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
If the exact list of sports is variable, what are the criteria for (non-)inclusion of an event in any particular Games? Does the host nation have more or less a free hand to choose? Are there some sports that are always included? Geoff 10:22, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
You have to remember that the World Game is first and foremost Footy matches with all the other events being "side shows" so not everything we have at the olympics will be present.--Marc Pasquin 13:26, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
I was thinking, could Kabbadi be a World Games sport? For those who don't know what it is see:

--Pedromoderno 16:01, 26 October 2016 (PDT)

No problem with that. By the way, which city will host the Olym-*ahem*, World Games in 2018?

--General tiu 19:04, 26 October 2016 (PDT)

What about sumo? Being Japan more prominent in the Pacific islands than *here* I'm sure we could find lots of big fat sumo athletes in Tonga and other places in Poynesia. Sumo would be a more international sport *there* than *here*. By the way there are some mongolians with good success in sumo in *here's* Japan.--Pedromoderno 18:03, 16 November 2016 (PST)

Sugestions for Winter World Games

Winter World Games event list is quite uncomplete. May I sugest a series of WWG's:

San Carlos de Bariloche (possibly called by its indian name: Vuriloche), in Araucania and Patagonia. Note this WWG would happen when it's Summer in North Hemisphere.

Pec pod Sněžkou, in Bohemian Kingdom, which would be named as something like Petcär in Bohemian (from Petzer, in German).

Gudauri in Georgia, Lachung in Sikkim, Mzaar Kfardebian in Lebanese Union and Kartalkaya in Turkey. --Pedromoderno 15:40, 5 July 2013 (PDT)

Please, sir, make it so! Elemtilas 16:13, 24 July 2013 (PDT)
Pec / Petzer would be Pecär in Bohemian, corrected in the table. Jan II. 06:23, 27 October 2016 (PDT)

What could its logo? Possibly a wreath with a flaming torch?
