The anticipation keeps building as the fun of the Carnival of Games gets closer. Not only will there be games galore but we'll also be holding a Viewpoint Trivia Challenge and COG Art Competition. Both of these are free and open to anyone to enter. The Viewpoint State of Origin, on the other hand, will pit a select grouping of 6 players against each other in a 3-on-3 'best of three' series of Viewpoint games.
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
