Think you have the game of Survivor all figured out? Think again!

Can you out-wit, out-stamp, and out-last your opponents? If so, get ready to play Survivor, Shack style!

Game Start Date: Monday July 25, 2011

Gallery Close: Sunday July 24, 2011 at exactly 6:00pm Central Time. No late entries will be accepted so please be sure to have your entry uploaded on time. UPLOAD YOUR ENTRY HERE (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=638)
Object of the game: To have your card avoid elimination and be the last one remaining in the gallery.

Instructions:

Make yourself a card as your official game entry. You can make your card very plain and simple with the hope that what you do put on your card flies under the radar and avoids elimination. Or, you can choose to make your card absolutely wild and crazy and over the top with hopes that the crazy items on your card don’t get you eliminated! Or anything in between!

When your card is completed upload it to our Shack Survivor card gallery (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=638)and title it Survivor 2011
Once the contest has begun, we will release an 'Elimination Statement' each and every morning. If your card contains the item listed in the elimination statement for that day, it is removed from the game and from the gallery. An elimination statement might look something like this: 'If your card contains a red brad, you are eliminated from play.' So, all entries containing a red brad(s) will be eliminated from the game.

Elimination statements will be released each day until we have just one card remaining in the gallery. The final card is our Shack Survivor and is the winner of the contest and the prize!

The Rules:

Only ONE entry per player, please.
Please be sure that your entry/photo is as clear as possible (ie. no tiny little photos, no blurry photos).
When uploading your entry, be sure to provide an accurate list of all items/colors/techniques/stamp manufacturers used on your card. If you fail to do this, your entry will be removed.
To keep things fair, only standard greeting cards will be accepted into play. No 6x6 recipe cards, ATCs, or altered items are permitted.
There must be at least 15 entries uploaded in the gallery on the day that the game commences. If there are fewer than 15 cards in the Survivor Game Gallery (http://stamp-shack.com/photopost/showgallery.php?cat=638), the game will be postponed until a later date or until we have the minimum number of entries.
The Prize: to be announced

I need someone who isn't playing so I can send them my list of elimination statements.

Christie

I think the Survivor gallery is open but if not you can post it in the gallery and label it Shack Survivor 2011 and when it's opened up I will move it.

StampShack Mike is on board and will help us get the gallery set up. I have also asked him to get us a sponsor for a great prize or 2, in return for advertising on the front page.
Thankyou Christie for offering to co-ordinate this. I know it is a big job. I will hold the statements and Not play if you need another "adjudicator"

Sounds like a ton of fun! I've always enjoyed this game! But too bad I'll be on my Alaskan Cruise during it.

Awesome timing, I will work on mine this weekend. I can't wait!! I needed something like this to get my creative juices flowing in the morning for my day of stamping bliss.

So just to clarify I noticed it said no 6x6 recipe cards but regular 6x6 greeting cards are ok correct??? I tend to work in that size because most of the images I like to color are larger and work better on that format of card base, but I could be encouraged to work out of my zone if I need to. I have a stair step card fold I have been dying to try, so I may give that one a shot.

Now the question is......where did I put my camera.........hmmmm...........off to poke around and see where I left it last. It escapes me where it might have been left in the house.

That is great fun! and a note to Lidia, you don't need to be here to play, just post your card before the deadline and they will look after the rest. (I am away for a lot of it as well but will get a card posted before I go.

Thanks so much for this!

Post your card before you go! You don't have to be here everyday to play. Just as long as your card is in the gallery before the deadline!

When I go to post my card, is there something I'm supposed to do so it goes to the right place in the gallery? I read the rules and it says to put it in the survivor gallery but not so sure I will do it right? If not can someone move it?

loobylou
07-08-2011, 09:26 PM
I just tested the new folder that the hosts put up for 2011 and it wouldn't process my card. I suggest you put Survivor 2011 in your card title so we can find it if it needs moving. Hope we can get the folder working ASAP.

RubberLady603
07-08-2011, 10:03 PM
Thanks Sarah! I'll wait until I get home from work Sunday before I try to upload it.

Yes, we can move it. Just be sure when you post it the title says Survivor 2011

I see a few more cards are popping int the gallery. Are you thinking strategically?, or chancing your luck? If you've never played before, it's good to know that absolutely any card can win. What you need to think about _is less, more??? or Is more, more???? Let the fun begin!

Christie
07-15-2011, 10:10 AM
The time is ticking ladies....get your cards made and into the gallery for a chance to play along in this very fun Shack Survivor!!!!!
