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 (and become the true Tiger King). You could make a funny face. You could make a sculpture of David Blaine. 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, April 12th) 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 will be chosen based on overall creativity and execution.

The winner takes home 1,000 Elite Member Points, a deck of Gold Artisans, a deck of Mandarin Monarchs, and OMEGA by Max Major shipped completely on the house.

Good luck!

AWWWE card sculptures:D:D! Who remembers when my first post on these threads were card sculptures Like the mug, or the Wallet. I honestly considered remaking my Tissue box, considering it might be more useful as a result of recent events, but I think ill go with something more original.

So, is creativity and execution the only criteria?
Yep! Creativity and execution the main criteria here. Good luck!

Can I film a time lapse of me making mine and submit that instead of a picture?

It's a two-layer cake for Mark Wilson .... Today was his birthday and he turned 91 years old.
Oh my goodness mark Mark Wilson is the best! I remember watching the same episode of the magic circus over and over as a kid. I was trying to figure out how did the biliard ball routine.
