~ Create a collection fitting a monthly theme.
~ Enter your collection into the monthly competition.
~ Win legendary and other cards for your collection.
What is this?
To help promote creativity and showcase the wonderful collections created across NationStates, The North Pacific Cards Guild runs a monthly competition where nations use their collections to compete against other nations and win free valuable cards.
How does this work?
Each month, the Guildmaster will announce a new theme in the competition thread in the NationStates cards forum. Over the course of that month, participants will have the ability to build a collection fitting the monthly theme, and enter it into the competition.
At the end of the month, two winners will be selected from among those entered into the competition: Guild members will vote in the Guild forum to select the Members' Choice, with the Guildmaster breaking any ties. The Guildmaster and Deputy Guildmasters will select the Masters' Choice.
What is my prize if my collection wins?
Both winners will each receive a random legendary card from The Northern Light's collection as a gift. No legendary cards are off-limits: this is your chance to win some of the most valuable cards in the game!
Additionally, until new winners are selected, both winners will be able to request twice as many cards as they would normally be eligible for in our card giveaway. This means that, if a winner is a Guild member, they will be able to request two cards per week each, and if they are also a Keeper of the North, they will be able to request four cards per week. If you collection wins, make sure to become both to get the maximum number of free cards!
How do I enter the competition?
Post a link to your collection in the competition thread in the NationStates cards forum. You may change the cards in the collection you are submitting to be judged as you please during the month. Don't make any changes after the month ends! That is when the judges will be looking at the collections to decide which collection wins. Collections with changes between the month ending and the winner being announced will be disqualified.
Below is a list of all previous competitions, along with the corresponding voting threads (including a list of all entered collections), winners, and the gifted cards. Please note that, until January 2020, there was only a single winner, which is listed as both the Members' Choice and Masters' Choice for those months.
