SWPocketModels.com Custom Card Contest!
« on: August 08, 2007, 04:18:50 PM »

STAR WARS
Pocket Model
Custom Card Contest

You've waited long enough-- it is time for the second SWPocketModels.com contest!  Things will not be as easy as last time though, this time you'll have to earn your prize.  We challenge you to imagine the greatest, most appropriate, most incredible, or just plain funniest custom SWPM card you can come up with.

Because of licensing concerns, and to keep the contest open for everyone, we will not be accepting any actual artwork or card designs, instead please submit your custom card according to the following [example] format to swpmadmin@gmail.com:

Card Title: [Darth Vader's Super Special Surprise Birthday Cake]
Card Icon: [none]
Card Ability: [+1 attack]
Card Text: [If card is played in support of a ship with Darth Vader in the title, supported ship gains +1 attack.  If card is played against a ship with Luke Skywalker in the title, supported ship gains an additional +2 attack.]
Card Flavor Text: [Luke, I'm your father, and it is your birthday!]
Card Reserve: [two build stars]
Card Defense: [7]

Only one submission per member will be accepted.  Please be sure to use the email address associated with your username.  Any submissions considered to be in bad taste will be disqualified and will count towards the one submission rule.  Bad taste includes any sexual, racial, particularly obnoxious, or any other topic that you wouldn't want to be heard mentioning in public. 

The five best submissions will be chosen by the administrators and moderators of SWPocketModels.com.  These submissions will then be presented to the forum community to choose the best submission.  Good luck everyone!


Details:

Prizes ?
First Place - 1x 30th Anniversary Tin (unopened of course)
First and Second Place ? Custom Forum Titles

Final Submission Date ? August 22nd, 2007  (12:00 CST) ? winner to be announced
as soon as we have been able to verify their eligibility

Final Winner Chose ? Three days after official vote poll is announced



Rules:
Five submissions will be chosen by the administrator and moderators of SWPocketModels.com (these are fstkfstk, treschonde, and mattyh, who will be ineligible to win this contest).    These five submissions will then be presented for forum members to vote for the best submission.  The top two submitters will be awarded custom forum titles and the top submitter will also win a 30th Anniversary Tin.

Swpocketmodels.com reserves the right to disqualify entries at our discretion.  Reasons for being disqualified include the registration of multiple usernames in an attempt to defraud this contest, submissions in 'bad taste,' and being on the judgment panel.  We would hate to see this great event spoiled by any kind of attempts at cheating.  If we discover users are abusing the forum or website in order to try to win, these users may be banned and removed from the drawing at our discretion.

In the case that the winner of the contest does not respond within four days of being notified, a second winner will be chosen, according to the vote, and the originally notified winner will not receive the prize. 

Shipping: We will try our best to ship the prize in a timely and safe fashion and will contact the winner to arrange shipping.  We will try to arrange shipping that is appropriate for the location, but in the case of foreign winners some help defraying the cost of shipping will be requested given the expense involved.  We want all our users to have the opportunity to win.

Finally, we would like to thank both Wizkids, for their awesome supply of prizes, and you the community, whose support has made events like these possible.

Yay! It's running before the fall term starts which means I'll actually have time to work on this! Excellent timing guys.

Not that I actually have any hope of winning, but I gotta try.

Hmm, if I'm reading this right, then after we submit, we vote on the cards selected for the contest? Well, that'll make it easier in finding out if you have a chance. Of course then there'll be all those pleas for votes. ;D
Once? An accident. Twice? A coincidence. Three times? A pattern.

Vote for me!!!  Or whichever one you all like best.  Also wondering, it IS going to be set up that each person can only vote once, correct.  And what about voting for your own?  I'm hoping people won't do that.  Maybe the "chosen 5" can't vote.

Awesome! I just sent my card in. ;D

I've been thinking of one like it for quite a while, so it's cool to send it in.

What is the "Card Icon"?

Anyways I think this is a great idea for a contest. The competition is "heating up" so to speak.

The Card Icon is what you would see in the abilities area (i.e. laser, droid, force, luck, etc).  Submit them to swpmadmin@gmail.com.

Is material from the expanded universe acceptable (specifically Rogue Squadron novels)?

Always let the wookiee win!
