Easter Bonanza 2013!

Postby sempaispellcheck on Sat Mar 30, 2013 11:25 pm

Hey, hey, hey, it's Easter Sunday!

The calendar has decided to play a little joke on us this year, with Easter coming quite a bit earlier than usual, but no matter! Your loyal friends on the Entertainment Team are well-prepared when a timely event and some new challenges for you, our fellow CCers!

First and foremost, would you believe it, the Easter map is open!
It will stay open until CC Time: 2013-04-07 00:00:00.
(NOTE: CC Time is Eastern Daylight Time)

We are marking the holiday with this delightful banner:

and these adorable bunny dice:

both courtesy of the one and only ManBungalow! What would we do without him?

Now, before we get to the games, it is my honor to announce the winner of the Easter Egg Design contest!
There were many fantastic designs, but it is CJ Lues who will receive a shiny GA Medal and 3 months premium for designing this incredible egg!
show: Winning Egg


Our second- and third-place winners, Shannon Apple and koontz1973, respectively, will each receive a GA Medal for their lovely designs:
show: Second-Place Egg

show: Third-Place Egg


Congratulations to our three winners, and thank you to the other eleven CCers who contributed their designs to the contest:
show: Other Eggs

A big thank you goes as well to our 6 judges for taking the time to decide the winners - I know it was a tough decision.

As a special bonus, mapmaker extraordinaire koontz1973 has taken the initiative of putting all 14 contest entries onto his Knights map for this event:
show: Easter Knights

so we can all be reminded of and inspired by our fellow CCers' creativity as we enjoy the game that has brought us all together!

And that brings us to the non-graphics side of this event:
In the same "let's do something different" spirit that brought us the Irish Assassin tournament, I present to you:
The [Official] CC Easter Bunny Hunt!...a terminator tourney on the Easter map! The first round will be 6-player games, but rounds after that may vary, as more than one player can advance from each game! 2 GA Medals and 3 months of premium are up for grabs! For more details, check out the tourney thread!

And finally, it's not Easter without an Easter Egg hunt, and it's ManBungalow to the rescue again! He's scattered a whole bunch of eggs around London's Trafalgar Square:

Your task:
1) Download this image (right-click, then click "Save Image As")
2) Open it in a graphics software such as Photoshop or GIMP
3) Find and circle as many eggs as you can
4) Upload the image with the circled eggs to a photo-hosting website such as Photobucket or Flickr
5) PM me (sempaispellcheck) the number of eggs you found AND the image - with the eggs circled - by CC Time: 2013-04-05 00:00:00!
Incomplete entries and entries that attempt to describe the locations of the eggs in words will not be accepted.
The player(s) who find and correctly indicate the most eggs will receive a GA medal!
The total number of eggs hidden in the picture will be revealed once the contest is over.

Happy hunting!

Send them to sempai.
Thank you for pointing that out - I've fixed it now.
Sorry for the confusion.

any contest including games? Keeping in mind this site is for game playing and not an Easter egg contest with pretty banners. The past couple years this site has taken a dump. Starting with activities like this.

You're just a killjoy! There are and have been plenty of contests involving games. There's no harm in a little bit of silly fun as well.

I don't have a photobucket account, or the capability to "circle" images on a picture. Call me old fashioned if you want, but this contest just doesn't work for me. Why can't this be like the Valentine's Day contest? I can PM you the details of the eggs I found, just no edited image circling them.

What is the point of the winning egg? Is there some kind of missing inside joke or something I am missing here? I don't get it or why that one is the winner.
