The FAQ is up, which may answer some of the questions: Twelve Days Of Christmas FAQ

For what's been asked - yes, any game counts, and it means the trophies originally released as part of the game, no DLC. And you have all month to work on this, but you can't make progress on the challenge for Day 2 until the challenge for Day 1 is completed.

How is leaderboard sorted when the number of completed challenges is the same?
Thought it would be time based, but it seems it is not.

If I were to get trophies before the next challenge unlocked, would it count towards that challenge since they were unlocked in the time period of the event?

It may be by time of registration. I just now completed my challenge and am sorted on the 11th rank, although apparently 53 people have completed the challenge before me.

Maybe it should be changed to time based related to completion of the last challenge or something else.

Yeah, it looks to be time of registration. I agree, it should be changed to order of completion. Well, number of challenges completed, then order of completion. I suppose registration time for any with 0. smile

Is there a way to withdraw from the event? After seeing the second challenge I won't be participating and would rather remove it off my profile and am not seeing a way to do so.

Damn. That stinks, I just started a game and popped the two online trophies. I figured that when it was said you have all month to complete the challenges, you would be able to do them in any order.

Knowing is half the battle.
Game On!!!

Interesting discrepancy: Over on TA, out of 4769 participants, 916 (19%) have completed the first two challenges, 719 (15%) more the first one. Here, out of 490 participants, 60 (12%) have completed the first two challenges, 60 more the first one.

The difference in numbers of participants was to be expected; I'm interested to see how the completion percentages will develop.

If challenge one says previous games count then I should have earned that one. Unless previous games count only if you finish in december. I have 4 platinums. Obviously the base trophies have been completed for 4 games. As for the second I dont really understand. Earn two in veruses? So mulitplayer basically right? I just unlocked two in Resident Evil 2 mulitplayer mode. Yet. My status on the challenge say nothing completed yet.
What is man but the sum of his memories? We are the stories we live. The tales we tell ourselves.

Previously started games count. That means you don't have to begin a game from the scratch, but the last trophy has to be earned after the challenge began.
For the 2nd challenge: You can click on "view valid trophies" and see, wich trophies in your games do count.

Looks like the icons next to the trophies/games under each challenge are incorrect. I'm seeing gamer pics from trueachievements instead of the respective game/trophy icon from PS. The image URL is showing trueachievements.com as well.

^ I'm also getting the 'Xbox Sales Hub' box on the right side of my screen when I view contest pages, so there is some odd overlap happening
