Earthbound Funktastic Gameplay is a certain "challenge" or "game" made up by the guys over at starmen.net. Basically, you play Earthbound part by part every day, and they give you challenges to try and fulfill. That way, you play the game at the same rate as the other people and you do different challenges. It's just a fun activity, and a reason to replay Earthbound.

[hide=Official description]The EBFGP will be updated once a day, everyday, except on Thursdays. Thursday is the designated "catch up" day. If you fall behind, you can hurry ahead and catch up with us on these days.

The event is divided into 25 "game play points," or GPPs. Each GPP has an starting and ending point, and when you get to the ending point, you save the game and wait until the following GPP.

Each GPP includes challenges, trivia questions, and more, but what's most fun of all is talking about the game with other participants in the EBFGP forum! However, it's important to note that the EBFGP is NOT A CONTEST. The goal is to get people playing and thinking about EarthBound in new, unique ways. :)[/hide]

I found out about this today, and it just barely started. So I'm going to catch up and have fun with these guys.

I don't think a single videogame has generated such a large and friendly community.  Almost a rule videogame communities are full of 12 year olds and whiney man children but not this game.

And Nintendo continues to ignore its existence...

"Is a force this powerful to be overlooked by a society that needs all the friends it can get?"

sure Zappa said it and he wasn't talking about Earthbound but I still think it applies


Also I used to do this every summer for like... 3 summers

I don't think I did any CHALLENGES though except maybe try to get through the game without saving Paula. Isn't it possible to not get JEFF or someone like that

Edit: Well you see to get to Threed you need Wad of Cash which you get from Everdred for saving Paula but it's supposed to be $10000 or something so I thought maybe you could get $10000 from bad guys and just advance that way

I dunno how that would work since you need her for

if I remember correctly.
It's too bad I already started on Earthbound again. I'll probably just wait until they're at the same place I am in the game and just try out some challenges.

Well yeah I wanted to make the game glitch up or something

not to mention she gets kidnapped at the shopping mall in Fourside so that would probably confuse the game

Through checking the site a bit too much, I got pretty caught up in this and decided to keep a blog of how I progressed.

So yeah, this'll be hot. I still have to catch up to the second gameplay point.
