THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION. UNDER THE CUT ARE THE FINAL RESULTS, AND THE ANSWERS FOR SPOT THE GIF. I haven't done any individual tallies for the missing challenges that i tallied, because there were a few so sorry about that. If anything on the spreadsheet looks amiss, please let me know

Last week this week - we're then going to take about a month or more off, i'm going to change the layout, refresh all the rules and get everything a bit more streamlined before we come back. I have to admit there is still a chance we won't return, but we'll see how i feel after a month off.

Current Challenges!

#01 Team Scavenger Hunt Due End of Phase- The 19th of June!!

This Season will wrap up on the 19th/20th of this month. Results will be posted soon after that. For those that missed my last message, gameofcards will be closing for maintenance after that for at least a month. Granted we are back up and running after a month, we'll be a bit more refreshed and rejuvenated - Having run for two years it's hard to keep things fresh and exciting for everyone, including the mods.

I'll be posting some landcomms you can join in the meantime closer to the time. :) Hopefully lol. Any links pop them in the comments.

Description Based on the previous challenge which seemed to go down ok - there are 10 gifs under the cut from various tv shows, there is no big theme for this one - i tried to be as diverse as i can, but some are reasonably easy :) Give me the show for each of the gifs

Obviously this post is reasonably image heavy. You can share the following hints : actors in the gifs, year, network, ways to search. Please don't share the tv show names. If it's a franchise you need to give me the correct show.

spreadsheet | original post

answers : 1. "You fail to recognize that it matters not what someone is born but what they grow to be"

2. "If more people valued food cheer and song above gold it would be a merrier world"
which is wrong and should be "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world" So either phrasing is fine.

3. "It is far better to endure patiently a smart which nobody feels but yourself than to commit a hasty action whose evil consequences will extend to all connected with you"

Team Hearts 201
Team Spades 93
Team Diamonds 288
Team Clubs 144

Congrats Team Diamonds! Let me know if anyone is missing points

Challenge 17 : Fallen Literacy

Description These are fallen phrase puzzles! all the letters have fallen to the bottom, and if you move them up in the correct order you should get a quote from three different books. Please don't share answers, but help solving the puzzle is perfectly fine in your team comms. You can also post hints to which books they are (eg year written and genre)

Sorry for the bit of delay in starting, i got sick over the weekend.

welcome to phase eight!! I CAN'T BELIEVE its phase eight. Due to the nature of having to keep thinking up new and interesting challenges, there will be an extended hiatus between this and phase nine - more than the two weeks we normally have. Hopefully it won't be the end of game of cards, but depending on the mod team we'll see how we go.

Please make sure you're on the spreadsheet, and that you are a member of your team comm team_clubs, team_diamonds, team_hearts or team_spades

If you're not where you're meant to be/accidentally got cut, let me know.
