    ARCANE video contest: Win a deck of Gold Arcanes

    Here it is: Your first chance to snag a Gold Arcane deck.



    ARCANE VIDEO CONTEST

    Surely, you've had your chance to get a few decks of Arcane playing cards. Now, we want to see what you do with them. Hit the mall, the boardwalk, the park, anywhere there are spectators, and drop some jaws with either a black or white deck. Or use both. It's your routine. Our judges will pick the best video based on creativity, skill, presentation and audience reaction. Here's the rules:
    • Only one video per person. If there is any appearance of multiple submissions from the same person, the videos will not be judged. (rule added Feb. 5)
    • Vid must be no longer than four minutes. Handy tip: TIME YOUR ROUTINE BEFORE PERFORMING.
    • Your performance must be for at least one genuine spectator.
    • Your performance may include any trick or effect that utilizes playing cards, and those cards must be from a deck of Arcanes.
    • Creativity is encouraged. Use the glyphs or the smoky face cards as part of your routine.
    • Your video may include any kind of editing, but your trick or routine must be uncut.
    • Submit your videos in the Member Videos forum with the words "Arcane Contest" somewhere in the title.
    • All videos must meet our submission guidelines. Any videos that do not will not be judged. NO EXCEPTIONS. THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING.
    Submission deadline: 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 1 (Central time zone; GMT -6)

    Good luck!

    Good enough question that it warranted an addition to the rules. I don't like doing that, but this is important: A person may submit only one video.

    During a previous contest, we had some who thought they could submit more than the rules allowed by establishing new forum accounts. By a strange coincidence, none of those people were even finalists last year. Gee... wonder how that happened. :)

    Sell the Gold Arcanes? Nah, it's much better for them to give them away as prizes and such, from a business stand point. Generates advertisements (people talking about them, bragging about having the decks, etc) and revenue when they add them as tiers in the holiday give-aways (Spend $300 and get a Gold Arcane deck!)

    Personally, I like collecting things so I don't mind that they're not being sold.
