Current Contest

Week 8 - Autumn in the Copperhead Mountains

Wednesday, November 07, 2018 - Tuesday, November 13, 2018
Find up to eight charms, any material but copper would be better, with shapes related to Copperhead, dwarves, mines and/or the season of autumn.
Less than eight will be given a partial credit, so do submit what you can find. (No repeating the same shape.)
As with last week, if a shape you choose is a bit of a stretch but makes up the total of eight you need, go for it and explain your reasoning on the label.

Weekly Contest Rules

Contest Introduction

The Charm Chasers club is happy to host a weekly challenge. We will run the challenge once a week for eight weeks.

Rules to play

All players on the Disc, except the Charm Chasers contest representative, are eligible to participate.

Charms that precisely match the current week's named charm (material and shape), should be labeled with your name and mailed to the week's Charm Chasers contest representative. (Please type the name carefully as there are other players with similar names.) If you do not wish to let go of your charm, you can try your luck catching the contest representative online and show it to her/him. Honor system applies that you would not share the same charm with another player or character for the contest.

Items deluded to match the contest item will not be accepted. Charms that actually match the week's named charm but have been deluded to something else can qualify.

Weekly prize money will be three royals to be divided equally between successful contestants.

If no entries are received that satisfy the criterion, the prize money will roll over to the next week's contest.

Charms will be mailed back to the contestants with their prize money.

For this week... You have a new charm to chase (diamond switchblade). There is a rolled over prize pool now totaling 9 royals! Submitting a charm that was due in week 1 (gold temple) or week 2 (emerald Fedecks) is acceptable. A charm from week 1 2 or 3 of the right shape but wrong material equates to a half share of what you would win if you had the right shape and right material.
