    Since through sheer happenstance it turns out I am running this and the SF&F contest at the same time, I was trying to think of some way I could have them connected to each other. This is a bit of a looser connection than I was originally envisioning, but it was the best I could do! ;)

    So in honour of the final season of the Game of Thrones, we're going to focus this contest on the "game" part. Your entry can be any image from a movie or TV show that depicts characters playing a game, is about a game, or is based on a game. We'll use a fairly broad definition of game, so it can refer to a sport or other physical activity games, card games, casino games, board games, video games, etc.

    Standard avatar rules apply: maximum image size of 200 x 200 pixels, and file size of 1 MB. You may enter two avatars. SF&F is allowed. Contest will be open for about a week.

    And please don't worry. When you play the Game of Thrones, you win, or you die. When you play the Game of Games, you win, or... you don't. If you enter but don't win, we won't harm you in any way... promise!

    Have fun! :techman:

    The One Game a four part ITV drama from 1988 that involves not one but two Game of Thrones alumni in Stannis Baratheon and Balon Greyjoy and which features a plot so similar to The Game I'm amazed no one ever tried to sue the people behind the film ;)

    Based on a game. Homer tries to defeat Bart at a boxing video game to the point he had a nightmare about it:

    I'm hoping to have the poll up Wednesday night, so about two days left if you'd like to enter!

    I wanted to do the game Ed and Gordon were playing in one of the last three episodes of "The Orville", but I couldn't find any Youtube clips of it. Maybe my failed attempted will spawn somebody to enter it who didn't think about it.

    No, that was neither from the last few episodes nor Ed and Gordon.
