VIEWPOINT TRIVIA CHALLENGE
The Viewpoint Trivia Challenge will test your knowledge of the Viewpoint card game. The trivia challenge will be held at 12pm. Each entrant will need to answer 10 questions with a possibility to answer 3 tie-breaker questions, if necessary. The winner will receive a new Nintendo Gameboy Micro and Gameboy game.
The Carnival of Games Art Competition is open to artists of all skill levels and illustrative mediums - paint, chalk, pencil, crayon, macaroni, etc. People can bring their art to the event or they may sketch something up at the event. All works of art will be placed on display as soon as they are received and a winner will be selected at 12:30pm. The judging panel will be a selection of the Carnival of Games stall operators who will assess each piece based on its uniqueness, creativity and relevance to gaming (e.g. a Picasso-esque box of dice). The artwork does NOT have to have relevance to the Carnival of Games, 93 Made Games or anything associated with them. The winner will receive an autographed graphic novel (Witch King: Autobiography of a Dark Lord signed by the illustrator Paul Abstruse) and the opportunity to provide an illustration for one of 93 Made Games' upcoming games.
VIEWPOINT STATE OF ORIGIN
The Viewpoint State of Origin tournament will once and for all settle which state is best at playing Viewpoint - New South Wales or Queensland. Three representatives will be selected from each state who will then form teams to play in a 'best of three' series of games. Official Viewpoint tournament rules will be used with the following exceptions/clarifications:
RULES FOR THE TOURNAMENT
- Entry is free.
- Two decks of Viewpoint will be used.
- To be eligible to play for a state, the player must have been born in the state, currently reside in the state or have played their first tournament game of Viewpoint in the state. This does mean that a person might be eligible to play for more than one state but as soon as that person chooses their allegiance they can never change it.
- Teams may rotate their players in between each game. This means that up to nine players can player on each side in the tournament.
- Players will be seated - QLD - NSW - QLD - NSW - QLD - NSW. Each team can determine its own seating arrangement within this pattern and the losing team can swap positions after the game they lost.
- A toss of the coin is used to determine which team deals first. The winner of the toss gets to decide if they want to deal first. Any player in that team may deal. The first team to deal also gets to determine their seating arrangement for the first game after the other team has done so.
- When a team wins a game, they must deal in the next game. Any player in that team may deal.
- Composite team scores are used. i.e. The scores of each team member are added together to calculate the team total.
- To win a game, each team needs to score 200 View-points or more.
- If an effect refers to 'another player' or 'any other player', then this includes your team mates.
- You cannot use a REVEAL/CANCEL card to 'protect' your team mates.
- The victorious team is the first team to win two games. A third game will not be played if the same team wins the first two games.
PRIZES: The victorious team will be awarded the Viewpoint State of Origin Shield for 2010.
