'Still Teh Prettiest' Forum Contest Entry Thread, for GCPP Gilthead

This is the Entry thread. Post your 'Still Teh Prettiest' tables here. GCPP Gilthead tables outside of this thread will not be judged.
Our Discussion thread is here.

* Rules (Now with brevity *)
- Entry Deadline: Midnight PST, Sunday, October 5. Winners Announced: Sunday, October 12.
- List which Pirate/Ocean you wish to recieve any prize.
- Post final entries only. Post additional entries in new posts. Edited posts are disqualified.
- If similar entries are submitted, greater weight will be given to earlier entries.
- Opal is welcome to participate. We read some German.

Creating Entries:
- You may play the game and take screen shots (turning off the PiRat helps) or you can use the game art provided in this zip file: http://albert.best.vwh.net/gilthead/GiltHeadContest.html.
- You may make any *playable* pattern.
- We will ignore any knotholes.
- Crop your image to the Blueprint portion of the board (450x400).
- Name your entries.
- You may use alternate colors on the game art if you choose.
- Keep the color sets (e.g. turning all the yellow pieces peach is good. Turning half the yellow pieces and half the red pieces peach is bad.)
- DO NOT change the outline shape or background textures in the game pieces.
- Host your own entry.

* Prize Breakdown

Grand Prize: Gilded Mirror Trinket, Carven Table or Large Cat (Winner's choice).

Prettiest Design/Original Game Colors: Sloop named Pretty Gilthead, Ribbon Trinket.
Prettiest Design/Alternate Colors: Atlantean outfit, Ribbon Trinket.
- Prettiness will be judged by our artists and designers. Both color and shape will be considered within your designs. We're looking for patterns here. Unlike Functional patterns we don't care whether Pretty patterns would actually booch.

Most Functional Design/Original Game Colors: Sloop named "Functional Gilthead", Ribbon Trinket.
Most Functional Design/Alternate Colors: Atlantean outfit, Ribbon Trinket.
- Functionality will be judged by our game coder as well as our designers. We will consider things like Difficulty and Compatibility with our existing game concepts. Only non-booch patterns will be considered for this.

Honorable Mentions: Small Trinkets and Gaming Tables according to whim.
Creative Naming: We will give fish bludgeon awards to people who come up with creative, Art History themed names for their designs.

All winning patterns will be included in our game prototype if possible!

* - The presentation of the rules has changed. The rules themselves are still functionally the same.

Re: 'Still Teh Prettiest' Forum Contest Entry Thread, for GCPP Gilthead

Ahoy!

Since a picture is worth a thousand words here is our example of a pattern which would do poorly in the prototype because it has no straight line matches. But it is a pattern to a human. We hope you will be MUCH more sophisticated and challenging.

The Checkerboard in Earthtones.
By Emberleo on Viridian

This image was generated using the pieces found in the zip file, and edited in an art program to have alternate player chosen colors.

The Checkerboard
by Irig on Viridian

This image was generated by playing the prototype game and then cropping a screen capture to the blueprint area.


For more information about existing scoring and patterns, please visit the Gilthead Contest Resource Page , where you can find the zip file of Gilthead pieces .

Re: 'Still Teh Prettiest' Forum Contest Entry Thread, for GCPP Gilthead

[edited to add pirate name and ocean]
Suggestions from Yarrmate, Cobalt.


1. Completing a row using same color, but only the thinnest pieces. Pieces do not have to be the same shape.
One row = Slender
Two rows = Gangly
Three rows = Spindly
All four rows = Precarious

[IMG]http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn294/joninbermuda/spindly.png[/IMG]

---

2. Same as above, but using thickest pieces.
One row = Stout
Two rows = Stocky
Three rows = Well supported
All for rows = Chunky!

[IMG]http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn294/joninbermuda/chunky.png[/IMG]

---

3. The game board fringed with lion pieces. The inner parts do not matter with color OR shape.

Gilt Edged!

[IMG]http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn294/joninbermuda/giltedged.png[/IMG]

---

4. A really difficult one to get, but would be an almost perfect score (?) as it would meet all of the bonuses!

Perfect Pride (pride of lions? get it? =P)

Birdmanjon,

In the future, please don't edit your post. In two minutes, we don't think you could have violated the rules we made the NO EDITS! rule for. You have an exemption this time. In the future, please just make a second, correct, post.

Thanks.

Re: 'Still Teh Prettiest' Forum Contest Entry Thread, for GCPP Gilthead

I'm really sorry... I posted, re-read the OP, and saw the "put your name and ocean", so I did - then saw the no edits bit! Guess that will teach me to read the WHOLE post first...

Re: 'Still Teh Prettiest' Forum Contest Entry Thread, for GCPP Gilthead

I got your PM about your edit of Atlantean Explorer entry. The time stamp of the edit is consistent with your explanation. Please leave it at the two edits it is now, with the narrow difference time stamp, and we'll still take the entry.

Please don't edit it again. I WANT to be able to judge it :D
(mwahahaha trinket planning)

And thank you for playing!

Kiv of Viridian

I decided to do a series of tables that Brigand Kings might have in their ships. If anyone likes them I might finish out the cycle.

Azarbad's Navigation Table




Barnabas' Writing Table



Vargas' Interrogation Table



Finius' Chess Table




Widow Queen's Dining Table
(alternate colors)

This pattern focuses more on shape layout than colors (especially since the fish will break the color matching anyway, I just matched them for fun.)

Re: 'Still Teh Prettiest' Forum Contest Entry Thread, for GCPP Gilthead

More entries from Maialiana of Viridian.

My previous entries were mainly about the colour and look of the table, these are solely about the shape of the pieces used.

Whereas my rainbow entries were for patterns formed by the increasing colour scores, these first two are for increasing and decreasing shapes.

Pyramidal! (any leg with shape sizes gradually increasing towards the base)


Tapered! (any leg with shape sizes gradually decreasing towards the base)


On Tiptoes! (where the bottom four pieces are the weakest)


Straight to the point! (where all pieces are straight, any thickness)
