contest rules

You can participate in the contest by creating a card on our create a card page by creating a do something or duel card, submitting a valid email address, confirming your email address by email. DEER LORD GAMES reserves the right to remove entries without reason or notice if we deem them unfit for whatever reason.

Entries for the best card and cards that will be included in the game will be judged on:

  • number of upvotes
  • how well they would fit in a game of DEER LORD!
  • versatility of the instruction (the more possibilities, the better)
  • how hilarious the end result would be
  • originality
  • the wording/phrasing (but only to a minor extent)

Entries will be judged by us, Dries De Geyter & Dennis Lippens, the guys behind DEER LORD GAMES. We will publish an expansion with a selection of the submitted fan-made cards, but only if there are enough entries that we deem good enough.

In electing the winner, upvotes will be taken into consideration but are not the final deciding factor. The combination of all cards must make for a balanced and pleasant gameplay as decided and judged by DEER LORD GAMES. Selected cards must differ enough from existing cards from the basic game or existing expansions to be elligible to enter the contest.
In case of duplicate card instructions, the first entry wins. That said, if there is enough of a difference, DEER LORD GAMES will decide which of the entries is better, depending on the subtleties of the card’s instruction and the wording (so dot your I’s and cross your T’s).

Entries must be submitted in English. The contest will end July 18th 2016, 11.59 pm CEST but we reserve the right to prolong or shorten the contest as we see fit. The winner will be announced no later than 3 months after the contest is over.
