Alright everyone, who wasn't so lucky to be the chosen one, and you've posted your goods, here's a poll for you! (which took awhile to make)  By the people, for the people!  I have taken what people have posted on the other link and made a poll just for you.  I want to see healthy game play discussions and play testing.  What would you change about a card to make it work?, what deck would it work in?, what ships would it work with?, etc...  This is to help promote play style, deck building, game play, etc... so be nice and encourage each other!  Help each other make cool combos and sweet strategies!  Lets gear up for Ground Assault!

Try not to vote for yourself (that's uncool and the Fonz will get you!)
I will give the winner a set of the original foils 111-120  8)
I'll run this for a couple weeks, and after everyone has posted.  I'll send out the goodies!

Talk to each other, use the chat room, send each other PMs, send each other Force points regarding the background of the card and it's intent.  You can change your vote if you want later.  Something may enlighten you like Yoda always does.  Have Fun, Play Safe, Game On!

P.S. After the first week, I'm going to condense this list and just keep the submitter and the card name and put a link to their post, so this isn't any bigger than it needs to be.   There are also links to each person so you know where to find them or want to know more about what they do on the message boards 8)

If I had known there was going to be another contest, I would only have posted my original submission.  To be fair, the one I sent in was the one called "Yahoo!", which you will recognize is similar to "You're all clear kid" from the final five.  It should have been a Torpedo card for Accurate flavor however.

Although the one I almost submitted was Jabba's Palace, and I now wish I did because I think it would have stood out a bit more from the other submissions.

My personal favorite however is the Naboo objective card.  It is a bit more subtle than the others, but I think would be powerful without being overpowered.  (Especially in a deck with Planetary Shield Generator!)

You can put whichever one you want in here, or just leave them out altogether.  I'm content that I had my one shot at the contest and missed.

What a good idea. ;D +Force.

Voting was a bit difficult as there is a mix of silly and serious, and which should I support?

Oh, foils... *eyes glaze over* must get my pretty, pretty, shiny, shiny....

Careful about that seriously silly!

That leads to fearlessly humorous;
fearlessly humorous leads to angrilly funny;
angrilly funny leads to hatefully satyrical;
hatefully satyrical leads to dark comedy;
.....
dark comedy leads to morbidly rediculous.

So lets all be careful with the seriously silly. :P
