Coloring contest: Color the line art provided!

Contest rules: One entry per member per contest. Must be at least three entries in a contest for prizes to be awarded.

:sunny: Game Details :sunny:

"Gift Grab Dice Game"
Supplies:
- everyone brings 2-3 wrapped presents (plus extra if bringing a plus one)
- value should be $1-$3. You may pop in an item of slightly higher value, totally your call. Ups fun.
- suggestions for gifts: ponies, accessories, merch, plush, backcards, paper ephemera, art, customs, handmade items, G1 retro stuff, candy/snacks. (Please note that G1 items are way more popular than G4 merch...)

Instructions:
1. Everyone sits in a circle, around pile of wrapped presents.
2. Shake, roll, grab, pass! Two baking tins with three dice each are passed around the circle. There are three rounds:
    Round I The first round is not timed. Everyone gets a chance to roll the dice. If you roll doubles, pass the dice tin & select a gift from the middle. If no doubles, just pass the tin. Round end when there are no more gifts in the middle. It is OK for people to have multiple presents, and some people to not have any presents at all – it happens!
    Round II Timed round. Set a timer (with a LOUD ringer!) for ~5 minutes (depends on size of group). Play proceeds as former round, only this time when doubles are rolled, select a gift from someone else’s pile. Round ends when timer goes off! (If someone rolled doubles BEFORE the timer sounds they still get to pick a gift).
3. Everyone opens their presents. No hiding the good ones – you must show everyone your gift!
    Round III Timed round. This time set the timer for a shorter period, but one that will still allow each person to get 2-3 rolls in. When doubles are rolled, select an unwrapped gift of your choice from another player! Round ends when timer goes off! (If someone rolled doubles BEFORE the timer sounds they still get to pick a gift).
4. Victory dance if you got the gift you wanted! Of course, there’s bound to be plenty of bartering, trading, and occasionally giving to those that didn’t get any presents at all. Also if a player did not get a gift, they are invited to select something from the prize table. Everyone’s a winner!

Yay! I thought this wasn't happening because of the fair.  I am going to try and convince the hubby that we need to go.  Oh, and I vote Sugarberry for Host Pony  :biggrin:

Nessa and I both have Sugarberry in our signatures. It's a sign from the Pony Goddesses. And strawberries are a really good summer theme. Though I feel like I should mention that out of all the ponies to craft, she's got some serious symbol to try and roll with. How many strawberry buttons do you think I can find? Or white material with strawberries on it? Oooh, ok, now I'm excited about trying this.

I finally decided to actually look up the date for the Pony Fair, and answered my own question. This will be nice- I can give someone money to pick me up an exclusive! And make them a Sugarberry!

Have we heard what the exclusive will be this year?  If there is an exclusive trading card from Enter-Play, I would definitely want that. I had better be able to attend the MN meet this time if Sugarberry is host; she is my very favorite!  It's going to be very interesting finding out how this years fair goes with all the newness of Hascon...

Oh....I'm moving back to the Midwest the last week of August! I'll be in Iowa, about 20 minutes from the MN border.  Wonder if I can make it again this year...  might be too close to the start of my kiddos school though.  It's been quite a few years since I attended the last one though!

Hi, Cloud-Weaver!
What part of the border? I'm north of Clear Lake/Lake Mills, sort of by Albert Lea in Minnesota. I had a meet this spring, and I'm planning to do it again, so that might be even closer for you!

Nessa, I haven't heard anything about the exclusive. Boo.

I want to come....I sure will try....I doubt I am going to Rhode island now.... probably no vendors so nothing awesome to buy....fairs not even really happening... Sundays are far easier to miss at work than Saturdays so it's doable.

I've been following you guys' threads for awhile now - I used to live in MN and, with luck, will move back there eventually. I hope you are still doing meets at that point! In the meanwhile, I hope you have fun this September! This sounds like it'll be an exciting one :)

Yay! I will make sure to have things ready this time. *laughs* I should be able to one of these times, right? :D

Planning to make strawberry-rhubarb jam, so I'll be sure to bring some. Also, in cleaning out the attic to put a bath fan in, we discovered our old rocking horse; might be bringing that along as well. Looks like all the parts are here.

Will there be a mailing list going out to let people know? :)
My creativity keeps running into the wall of "it's already been done."  :argh:
I'm also available via twitter at @Kazzellin :)
Twilight Petals avvie made by my friend Matt. ^.^

Do you have enough sugar????

I made rhubarb jam, but it's not setting, so it's rhubarb syrup. And it's really good. I might drink it.

I will do this thing! Here we go!
  SHAZAM!

It is done.
I sent a message to:

biancaferrando
mngusty
Sapphire Rain
Eternia
Nimrodel
Aquatic Neon
bubbles171
rosierjay
MoondancerMilkyWay (I know she's far away, but maybe...)
Delphian
scarlettkitty81

I didn't send one if you were already here. If you think of anyone else, you can just mention them, or you can message them. My message was pretty simple.

And my vote for Host Pony really is Sugarberry. I love her colors!
