I have an idea for the Ninjas vs Pirates challenge, let me run it by you all and tell me if it fits the challenge.

One of my favorite tv shows has the recurring line of little mutant ninja assassins and I was thinking of making a patch of it. Technically it has the word ninja in and in context they are talking about ninjas-the girl on the show is often referred to as having scary ninja ways. It's just not actually about a ninja. See my confusion. Let me know what you think.

On another note I am so excited for the games this summer, it's a great way to stay busy and be creative!

I have a question-  For fantasy what does that include?  I want to make a bunch of crafts for books for lots of fiction-from Lord of Rings, Harry Potter, Hunger Games to kids series such as the Magic Treehouse.  How "Fantastical" does it have to be to be considered Fantasy?  If those work I will Join Team Fantasy.  If not I will fly solo with a "reading" geekdom.

Any way one interprets a ninja or pirate will work.  If you add the above description, then it would definitely be accepted (descriptions are a player's best friend in the Games Cool).  Thinking outside the box is fantastic.  I will say I'm easy.  If one tries to connect the prompt with their project, then I'm good.

I started my pirates vs ninja project today!

Also, looking at my pre-start brainstorm list I can fit some into the prompts.
Hooray!

I had kinda the same question, I think. Here's what lead me to team fantasy:
Both fairytales and Steampunk might fall under the broad genre of fantasy.  Smiley

I would have to agree. Smiley

Fantasy can really fill in anyone who enjoys the genre. Cheesy I'd be happy to have you join the team.

Or, in proper nerdy fashion (creepy voice time) Jooiiiiiiiin ussssssssssss....

There are so many other super options, but this second (my mind changes frequently) I'm kind of leaning towards a what-would've-happened-if and what-will-happen-if focus: steampunk, dieselpunk, post-apocalyptic...Would those fit fantasy too?

I would probably say yes - although I'd definitely want to point you to the Dystopian team, too.

That might fit your interests a bit better - 'what-would've-happened-if and what-will-happen-if' makes me instantly think dystopia. But that's just me. There's lots of great teams to choose from, and some of them overlap a bit. Cheesy  

Hope that helps!

I think a question of mine may have gotten missed.  Totally understandable with the amount of posts on here a day!!! lol, but I just wondered, for the red blue challenge, can it be shades of red??  Would pink count? Or only red?

You know after giving this thought, I'm going to say yes to shades & tints of red.  My reason is because there are so many shades & tints of blue that are seen as blue that it would only be fair to say the same for red.

Examples of what I'm talking about....same value color levels to compare...

███    ███    ███

███    ███    ███

See, most would say blue for all the top and red & pink for bottom.

So YAY Pink! Grin
