When I announced the first Season Five Contest, I wasn’t expecting a lot of entries because it required a pretty specific skill set. Only so many people know how to make music, let alone send it out into the intertron as an MPThrizzle. As a result, entries were few, but the quality of each was very high, and we ended up with a solid new Free-For-All Roundtable theme song. All was well, but I knew I wanted to do a second contest that would be a bit more accessible. I also know a lot of people out there love making cards, redesigning cards, and playing around with the game mechanics. So I was pretty sure I knew what I wanted to do; I’d been thinking about this contest idea since Season Two and wasn’t sure when to drop it.

Well, when you have no other ideas, it’s always the right time to deploy anything you thought of earlier.

With the announcement of Season Five Contest Two, my e-mail account began to flood with entries, then tapered off to a trickle after time went on. I was pretty sure we’d settle around fifty entries, but in the last hours before the deadline, I got like twenty entries. It was a lot, when you consider every entry had at least five cards within (some had more!). A lot of these had an enormous amount of time put in and it was pretty obvious; we got hundreds of words in explanations of mechanical and flavour considerations for each card with some entries. Others had new custom art. The range of entries were so diverse, it was pretty tough to pick winners, so I certainly deferred to my homies. To pick winners, CommanderCast staffers Brionne, Max, and Justin helped me sift through these entries to pick a winner.

I want to thank them for this. It really was a lot of stuff to look over, and they even went ahead and sent me nicely-packaged explanations of why they choose the entries that they liked to win. You’ll be able to read those below. Read the rest of this entry »

At the end of Season 4, I announced a contest that would run across the gap between Season 4 and Season 5. This was the Battle of the Bands. Since I had planned to flip all the music on CommanderCast into stuff that fell into the Creative Commons liscence, I needed something to replace the iconic Star Trek Fight to the Death music used in the Free-For-All Roundtable segment since it’s inception. While this was deeply saddening, it also created an interesting opportunity for a contest. I didn’t know how much of the CommanderCast audience was musically inclined, but I figured it probably wouldn’t get me killed to throw the idea out there.

You can find the rules for Battle of the Bands here. Read the rest of this entry »
