Saturday Night Contest - Anything But a Castle!

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Casey Rudd, Jun 15, 2019.

  1. Hey everyone! For this week's Saturday Night Contest, we wanted to do something fun that anyone can participate in. It will require some creativity, but everything you need to do this should be easily found around the house.

    We've done several "make a card castle" contests in the past, and some of your creations were AMAZING. Tonight's contest is totally different. Your challenge this evening is to make a structure out of playing cards, but there's one rule: it can't be a card castle.

    What does this mean? That's up to you. Think of it as pasteboard origami. You could make a dragon. You could make a tiger. You could make a funny face. You could make a sculpture of Chris Kenner. You could make a true-size iMac, entirely of cards. Whatever you make is up to you, but it can't be a castle. Be creative! You can use whatever adhesive you prefer, and any type of playing cards.

    You have until 11:00pm EST tomorrow night (Sunday, June 16th) to make your structure. Snap a picture of your creation, upload it to Instagram with the hashtag #theory11 and post the link to your picture in response to THIS forum thread before the deadline. Please note that your photo must have the date of the contest shown somewhere in your picture to be considered for judging (like on a piece of paper in the shot). Be sure to tell us what your creation was supposed to be in your post, so we know what we're looking at.

    Winner takes home 1,000 Elite Member Points, a deck of Black NOCs, and 6 decks of your choice of ANY currently in-stock decks available in our store, shipped completely on the house.

    Good luck!

  8. Seriously! I was already not going to attempt this week, but especially so after that. In my opinion, the contest is won.

    That looks awesome, Justin.

  9. Pardon my French, HOLY SH**

    The fact that you constructed something that, literally constructs buildings, is worthy of applause!

  10. My picture was inspired by my love for television and exposé. I am a radio/television major in college and I decided to make an old school TV set out of monarchs. I also included a King sitting in bed watching some exposè with Christen and Zach. I LOVED those old exposè web shows. Anyways, this is my entry, I hope you all like it. Good luck to everyone!

  11. Question. If we need to put the date in the photo, does that mean that we don’t need to post through instagram?
  12. Creativity and execution of your idea. The best overall that covers those two criteria
  13. Don’t need to post through IG this week! Testing waters to see if we can go back to old style for photo contests.

    Here is my entry, Special thanks to my younger sister, when I told her about this contest she was immediately excited because she really loves origami.

    She helped me a lot making this ROSE I had to split few cards to make the center of the rose.

    It was a fun one good luck everybody.

  17. Oh Hoorayyy!!! I don't have an IG, so THANK YOU!!!!

    I seem to be having trouble uploading on insta. I'll try later, in the meantime here's my entry.

    I took the abstract approach.
    I saw someone do this on insta, for the life of me, I can't remember who. If anyone knows, please do let me know as I'd like to credit them.

    Good luck all!
