Contests can be some of the most fun in terms of card creation. The prompts stretch creativity and allow creators to work within limits and come up with new ideas and go outside their comfort zone. I plan on hosting a contest now every so often, hopefully as often as possible without them being stale so long as people enjoy them, so let's kick things off.
No longer accepting participants
Create a card that looks like it would be the ace monster used by the main rival character in a YGO anime/spinoff!
Specifics: This is typically scene as a Level 8 monster with 3000 ATK and 2000-2500 DEF, typically LIGHT or DARK attribute. Look for ideas on who this character may be and how this monster fits them as their ace.
Entry Requirements and Fee: Anyone may join for free!
Prizes: A special badge for your profile or signature that will showcase your place and your card (for top 3 submissions)
Criteria: Entries will be judged on the following scoring:
- Balance: /35 - Is there a good balance of investment vs. gain? Risk vs. reward? Is it fair, or not?
- Creativity: /35 - Does this card take an interesting angle on mechanics? Does it promote creative play, or is its uses rigid and set?
- Flavor: /25 - Do the card's mechanics match what the card's theme and design is? Does it play with lore and creative design?
- Grammar: /5 - Did you write gud? (I will be very lax in this; so long as you don't screw it up totally you should be fine)
Deadlines: Deadlines for entering will be Saturday, March 18th at 11:59 PM PDT. Deadline for card entries will be One week after, sooner if all cards are submitted.
All submissions must work under existing Yugioh game mechanics. No custom types, sub-types, attributes, card-types, etc. Link monsters are allowed. All YCM section and forum rules apply.
Judging: If you are interested in judging, please post here with your criteria. I reserve the right to turn down anyone for whatever reason.
If you're down to clown, post your intent to entry! Again, you can enter until the 18th at 11:59 PDT, and then you are given a week to post your card entries. If you have any questions, feel free to post.
