Spring Egguinox - a daily doodling event! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

When: April 2nd to April 15th
What: A new contest every weekday
Who for: everyone (except for grumpkins and snarks)
Who by: Apollo Prometheus

In what is now a beloved yearly tradition, here is a little Doodling to keep you going while waiting for December to come round again, as it continually insists on doing! Every weekday, at or soon after Noon PDT, I will post a contest. Most of these contests will be forum-based and will require entries the same day. At the next noon-time, I'll close one contest and announce the next one. There will be a variety of prizes and they won't be pre-announced, although I think you should assume that eggs will be involved in there somewhere. Or everywhere. Or nowhere. But probably somewhere.

There will be two forum threads for this event. This thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes, as well as any discussion. A second thread ( http://forums.puzzlepirates.com/community/mvnforum/viewthread?thread=181511 ) will contain all contest descriptions and their entries during the two weeks, and should be used for entries only - no discussion or questions.

Each daily contest will be inspired in some way by one of this year's Egg Furniture designs.

>--------------------<

The general rules for the forum contests are as follows, closely based on those used in the December Daily Doodles.
-- Only one entry per player in each day's contest, but you may enter as many different contests as you wish during the event.
-- You must include your pirate name and ocean at the top of your entry post. Make sure you use the pirate and ocean for which you would want to receive a prize.
-- I will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. Unless I've made a serious booch, I'm not going to be answering questions during the day. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.
-- The entry thread is going to be busy enough without chat. Keep the entry thread just for entries please!
-- The general rules on avoiding tasteless or offensive material apply at all times on this forum but I'm mentioning them again here just in case.
-- Judging will be completed as soon as possible after the contest has closed, and I always aim to post results within a day of the contest closing. I will post the winner and the prize in the following post once judging is complete. At any one time, therefore, there is likely to be one contest open for entries and one contest being judged.
-- I'll be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when I feel I need them. I'm not going to get into discussions on the judging of any individual event.
-- I will try to deliver prizes myself as I announce them.
-- Don't get hung up on the prizes and the need to win. Take part because it looks fun, it's an interesting challenge, and it's an opportunity to share your quick-fire skills with your fellow players!

I was super egg-citied to see this until I saw the event dates. We will be going out of town for my son's spring break - of all the weeks! Perhaps I can sneak some doodling in somehow. (My kids already think I'm crazy anyways...)

Somewhere, in a darkened room on Mount Olympus....

"Shhh!"
"Don't worry, he's not here."
"Okay, where's that chest?"
"OUCH!"
"sorry"
"Watch where you're putting your big feet"
"Look, I SAID sorry."
"Are we sure he's not here?"
"Don't be daft. If he was here the place would be as well-lit as... well, as day. Besides, he's been missing for months."
"Oh, right. Could we at least turn the lights on then?"
"No! Clotho might notice, now shut up and go find his box of familiars, would you?"
"OUCH!"
"That wasn't me."
"No, I think I just found the trinkets. Some of these are sharp."
"And there's some funny thing that looks like it might be a counterfeit egg press."
"ZOMG. EGGS. I want a Dalegg."
"No, no. You can only counterfeit real eggs."
"Oh."
"Well, let's counterfeit real eggs, then!"
"DUH. Okay, I think we have everything. Let's make like crow and fly out of here."

AHEM.

"Oh... ah... erm. Prometheus? HI."
"We weren't expecting you."

I SEE THAT. COME ON THEN, HAND THEM OVER.

"Hand what over?"

YOUR NEW TOYS.

"What new toys?"
"OUCH!"
"Okay, okay."
Tinkle Tinkle.
Tweet Tweet.
Squish Squish
Mreow!
Oo-oo-ah-ah!


VERY GOOD. NOW, AS PUNISHMENT, YOU CAN SPEND THE NEXT TWO WEEKS HAND PAINTING THIS YEAR'S EGG COLLECTION, AND THEN STAY OUT OF MY WAY. I HAVE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO.*polishes doodlestick*

"What, like getting your hair done?"
"OUCH!"
"Okay, OKAY! We're going!"


Hi, Pro! welcome to doodles. I hope you have a good hold on the reins.

I had briefly toyed with the idea of doing a Lego-related doodle but felt it ultimately unfair to those who don't have Lego on hand (if this resembles you, for shame!). Now that you mention it if you don't do something with them I will be very cross indeed! There may even be pouts.
