So sorry the final results are delayed! I have a couple of behind the scenes things I need to do to finalize it all, but they will hopefully be all done and posted by early or mid week!

Thank you all again for being awesome!

Happy New Year!

Phase 9 has officially come to an end!

(Apologies that we did not get to vote on the 10in30. With the holidays, I just ran out of time. I do hope to do a couple more voting-type challenges in the next go round. Sorry again that it didn't happen as planned.)

Please stay tuned as I finish up a few house-keeping tasks! The final results of the phase will hopefully be posted in a day or two!

gameofcards will return in February!

It's been just about one week since the start of Phase 9 and we are off to a great start!

I'm so excited to see all of our returning members as well as some new ones! And you've all jumped head first into the challenges!

Thank you to everyone for continuing to make gameofcards as awesome as it has always been!

#01 Make Me Choose Meme [DUE NOW September 18]
#03 Cat in Japan [Due September 19]

Open Challenges:
#06 Setting Lottery [Due September 24]
#04 School Daze [Due September 30]
#02 Sigtag Exchange [Due October 5]

I also have a few ANNOUNCEMENTS & NOTICES to share as we continue on:

• Please remember, you can always check the Open Challenges List. Or you can track the Open Challenges LJ Post as well!

• Everyone should now be on the spreadsheet as well as in the correct team communities, etc. Please check to be sure you are where you are supposed to be (and have been removed from any teams that you should not be). If I've missed you for any reason, please let me know!

• There have been some questions about when the challenges officially end. Originally I had intended to continue as things have always been and have them end at midnight (technically 11:59PM) EDT (as challenges have done in the past).
However, my timezone is CST, so I have decided to extend the deadlines to midnight my time. That should give everyone an extra hour (starting with the challenge that ends tonight of course). I hope you find that helpful. :)

Challenges for Phase 9 will end at MIDNIGHT CST
(Please note: that is the last minute of the day, not the first).

• If you have any questions or need me to sort anything out, please feel free to contact me in the comments or by PM!
10 September 2016 @ 11:07 pm


The phase will run for 3 months (from now until approximately mid December).

Here is the Phase 9 SPREADSHEET! You can go ahead and check it out to see how the teams evened out. (I'll be replying to you individually and making sure everyone is added to the correct team communities soon!)

Our team leaders for this phase are:
Clubs: erinm_4600 & lealila
Diamonds: teaotter & ama_ranth_827
Hearts: theladymorgan & sidhe_faerie
Spades: hyacinthos & madampresident

You should hopefully be hearing from them very soon as well to kick off the new phase!

Don't worry, other than a few small changes the community will be staying mostly the same!

So, if you are new and need to know where to get started, you can check out the previous guides as not much has changed:
+ community rules and info
+ guide to the comm

Keep an eye out for the first challenges (coming soon)!

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Hello All!

In case you haven't seen, SIGN UPS ARE OPEN HERE for the next phase of gameofcards!

I'm very excited to be the mod for phase 9!

I'm still working on sorting out the teams, but I hope to have those announced and the first challenge posted on Saturday, September 10!

I also wanted to say that I'm trying very hard to take everyone's preferences into account as I arrange the teams, but so far we've had twice as many of our previous diamonds sign up compared to the other teams. So I hope you can please forgive me if you don't get your first choice or if you are moved from your previous team. Unless you've specifically said not to move you, you're fair game ;) There's just no way around it that some people will have to be shifted- or else we'll have 18 members on team diamonds and about 8 on the other teams!

Also, If you have a great idea for a challenge or think you might like to be a challenge mod, please let me know! You can comment below or send me a message.
