Hey all - you may have noticed a few Attacktix things around the site - we're gonna run another Photoshop contest!

www.boardgamegeek.com/contest/attacktix

Hasbro dropped 17 cases of product on me today, so I've got 50 copies of the Attacktix Star Wars vs. Transformers Battle Pack to send out.

The theme of this photoshop is the Star Wars and Transformers Attacktix universe - be creative! Deadline for entry is midnight December 20, 2006. Winners will be announce on December 22, 2006.

You don't need to create an image to enter the contest, just click on the I agree to enter. We'll give away extra prizes to people who just enter versus those who create cool images.

Also - I've got a sweet microbadge for participants! You know you want it


Links to games:
Attacktix Battle Figure Game: Star Wars

Also, big thanks to Ryan Johnson (ryno8) for the awesome Geek Trooper!

I saw that Geektrooper and thought, hey, wouldn't it be cool if some games had a different geek when your browsing them? So in a moment of artistic inspiration I made this:



Now that I found out it's part of a contest I'll have to come up with something.

I have to say I am not as thrilled. While I fully understand and support ads on the site (both from an income stream AND a "I want to buy it" sort of way) to actually have the main logo co-opted by a company strikes me wrong. I can't be sure mind you...but for now I wear a wary look when I see it.

My assumption in all cases where it says US only is that it means US shipping address only. Is this correct?

(The exceptions to this are usually when someone needs a US credit card.)

Another US only competition.

If they cut down the prize with a few games, then they would be able to afford mailing outside the US.. I'm looking forward to the first 'Rest of the world only' competition, just to make these US companies realize that their country is not the only 'civilized' and 'game interested' country in the world.

Sending a couple of games outside America hardly costs more than 50 bucks! Cheap, cheap companies!

Hmmm. The prize seems too small for the effort on this one. And it isn't even edible.

So much for using the "misprint" C3PO Topps card as a starting point.

I'd really like the Microbadge, but have no photoshp skills or talent. I'll be willing to join the contest for someone and get any prize won sent directly to them so I can get the badge.

I feel like such a begger... blush

I wish I could participate, but for the microbadge only it's worth it!

EDIT: Will the microbadges be awarded after the contest or after we've submitted our entry?

Awesome! It's really great to see the board game industry see the value of BGG. These contests are wonderful. I wish I had the time to work on one of these photoshop thingies. What fun. And the manipulation of the BGG Logo is healthy (and a kick).

Thank you and Bravo!

P.S. I showed the wife Attactix on the shelf in a store, and said I really wanted it. I couldn't convince her that I wasn't joking. I'll just have to pony up after Christmas to buy myself a set (or two).

So those of us who just enter will get a shot at extra prizes! Now that's cool! (I think you probably meant the other way around?)

Easy solution: Move to the US!! It's so obvious--must we come up with answers for everything?

I have no idea why the rest of the world thinks that we're so Ameri-centric.

Powerpoint - the poor man's Photoshop
Suggestion - if you have an idea for an awesome entry, but you don't have the time to do in Photoshop- do it in Powerpoint. Take a screenshot of your final image, crop it, and save it as a gif or jpg. Easy! ninja I wanted a storm trooper smiley, but I guess I'll just have to wait for my badge.
