Monthly Collection Contests - Hosted by TWP, Open to Anyone!

Postby The West Pacific Card Club » Mon Mar 04, 2024 6:02 am

Welcome to the Monthly Collection Contests hosted by The West Pacific Card Club!

The Card Club has been hosting collection events in one form or another since 2020, with a regular monthly schedule dating back to 2022, and now we're bringing it to the forums so more people can participate!

At the start of each month, a new competition will be announced. The announcement post will explain the theme, and might give special criteria for bonus points when the collections are judged. Collectors will have the entire month to work on their entries, and must submit them before the end of the month.

In order to enter, simply post your collection link in this thread at any time during the month! (TWP residents can continue submitting on the RMB as usual, however.)

After the month ends, edits are no longer allowed, and the Card Czars Giovanniland and Laudesia will rank the collections! The winner and runner-up will always win a legendary card each, but extra prizes might also be awarded depending on participation, all prizes coming from Western Card Storage G.

Happy Hunting!

Hello hello! I decided to try this contest, I think you can see the cards I found this month here: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/collection=74588
I'm sure not all cards fit, and of course if you don't like them don't consider, but I must explain my (tremendous) logic behind every card!

Starting by Spring, I took all cards that have "Spring" in name, plus I found this card with "Spring" in pretitle: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 1/season=3
Then I thought what is spring for me, so I collected little colored birds and migrant birds (you will see swallow and storks).
Spring means flowers, so I took cards with flowers and pictures of flowers. I even found a nice sprout: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 4/season=3
Flowers call bees and butterflies, insects of spring, so I collected 3 or 4 cards with bees, even a legendary one, a butterfly and 2 caterpillars.
What's the weather like in spring? https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 6/season=3
But sometimes, above all where I live, the ice strikes again killing the gems: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 9/season=3
In Italian spring is Primavera, and this is "La Primavera" of Sandro Botticelli: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 5/season=3

Easter was more difficult because I'm not religious. As before I collected cards with "Easter" in name.
I took some cards showing adult Jesus (even funny ones) and the cards with an empity cross.
Jesus is represented as a lamb maybe? I'f I'm correct, this card works: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 6/season=3
I thought a symbol of the Easter could be the dove bird, especially white dove carrying an olive branch in its beak, so I collected many flags with that symbol. If I'm wrong just ignore them.
Easter means chocolate! And I added cards showing many kinds of chocolate and some sweeties.
Then there are bunny ears and bunnies. Also some creepy ones...
In ancient Babylon Ishtar was the goddess of the fertility, carrying eggs and bunnies, by chance even her name is pronounced as "easter": https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 6/season=3
At last I added some cards with the "Easter Island" flag: https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 1/season=3
And a couple with the Moai of Easter Island.

Third chapter, the eggs. Same as before, I bought all cards I could showing "Egg" in their name or in picture, even normal or cooked eggs, it's ok if they don't count.
A couple of cards that just seem eggs:
https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 5/season=3
https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 3/season=3
And my 10.000 points card is an egg. Of a mammal, probably human, but it's DEFINITVELY an egg! https://www.nationstates.net/page=deck/ ... 4/season=3

I must mention few cards are in 2 copies, when I could catch 2 I took them both, nevermind if it doesn't count.

Thanks for patience if you read all my rants, but above all thanks for hosting this fun contest, I liked to search cards and use some (maybe too much) fanatsy!

With the start of April, The West Pacific Card Club is pleased to announce another competition, the April Fools Card Contest! (This idea comes courtesy of Mediobogdum!)

Rules: Collect cards that are funny to celebrate April 1st, April Fools day! In addition, we'll be having a card cap of 100 cards per entry (as a trial run) to encourage creativity over quantity, so choose the cards you find most humorous wisely!

Submissions: You must submit a link to your collection in this thread by 23:59 EST 30th April, with no collection edits allowed after that. Please tag your post with #FoolsCardContest so it can enter the competition! After that, the Card Club will judge all entries and declare a winner.

Prizes: The winner and the runner-up (selected from both TWP and NS forum entries) will each receive a legendary card. There may be bonus prizes depending on participation, so be sure to share this contest with your friends so they can also participate!

Have fun collecting, and let us know what you think about this 100 cards cap trial run! The West Pacific Cultural Trust and The West Pacific Card Club bring this competition to you.
