Card of the Week Contest: Round 5
|Sun, 2011-01-09 06:03|
Welcome to the 5th CotW competition. After a month of very successful competitions, and last week's trip back in time, I'm going to ask you to take another trip back in time this week. For this week's challenge, we're going to do something a little different. This week, submit any one card design (any color, any type, even for extra games like Planechase, Archenemy, etc.) that pays homage to a video game predating 1995. I will ask that you state what game you've chosen to pay homage to, and that name the character you've chosen to pay homage to. If you choose a game element such as a weapon, spell, or location then I would ask that you also provide an image as those can be more difficult to find images for. The image can be a screencap, poster, box art, etc. - anything will do (so long as it is forum appropriate.) AO games are off limits, but other than that, you have free reign over your selection. Here's an example card to help show what I'm looking for:
Game chosen: Adventure (Atari 2600)
As you can see, we'll be showcasing the VS style template this week. Feel free to make full use of that template's features, including the team icon and version fields if you like (if you don't, I'll just fill those in with the game or system logo and the system name.) Happy designing.
So there you have it

The rules are not optional. If you take a tl;dr (too long; didn't read) approach to them, then I take the same to your entry and will not include it in the poll. Please keep this in mind.
Finally, a heads up to everyone, I will absolutely not request that you correct your entries this week. If you mess it up, it really isn't going to be included. No ands, ifs, or buts about it. This is your only warning.
The entry deadline is 11:59PM CST 01/15/11. Voting will last 1 day after that, so please be prepared to cast your vote!
BIG RED TEXT. Now that I have your attention, if you didn't read the rules, please scroll back up and read them.
