Hi everyone! You might have seen the announcement on the trade comm, but we now have a Discord chat for Colors! so come over and say hi! Also, next month is our anniversary month - the TCG will be 7 years old in June! What kind of discussion topics or games would you like to see during the anniversary celebration? You can browse the tag to see what was done in previous years.

Recently we got snow in May, so for this month's freebies you can take two cards that look like they "don't belong" in their decks. It can be a character card or special! For example the card blueeyes12 is the only one in the deck that features green hair Kaiba, escaped18 is the only one made of uncolored manga image, etc. It can be a stern character smiling, it can be the only card where they are younger, any explanation is okay!

That's all for today, see you next month! Previous release is still open for claiming for 48h!

Link standby... Please wait. )
Welcome to the Cable Club! Here, Pokemon trainers around the world can trade Pokemon with one another. Our trading machine can be used to trade multiple Pokemon simultaneously: all you have to do is connect the link cables!

Except.. It seems for a while it's less about trading between two trainers, and more of Pokemon being sent back to their trainers. This week it seems the Kanto and the Johto Elite Four are being reunited with their Pokemon! 

Each pair of Pokemon to be traded is represented by their corresponding color in this grid. In order for the trading machine to work, the link cables must connect using following rules:


1) Connect blocks of the same color to ensure each trainer gets the correct Pokemon.
2) Paths may not cross each other, or it will interfere with the transfer!
3) The entire grid must be filled, leaving no empty spaces.


Here is an example of a simpler puzzle and solution for your reference

For completing this puzzle, you'll receive 8 cards. (since i've added a new color for this set)


This round closes Wednesday, May 31st

Last week's story: "Maybe if you wore something more adjective, you wouldn't look adjective."

Your gracious host, Trucy, runs a weekly magic show. To get the audience pumped up before the show, Trucy begins with a simple trick - a short mad libs story, a bit of magic, a couple of cards, and voila: free stuff! You might also be entertained, but no guarantees.

Trucy needs help deciding what her story will be about; however, it's funnier if the audience doesn't know until afterward, so you'll just have to submit your cards and see what happens at the end of the round. Help her fill out the major details by submitting deck names to fill in the blanks of her story idea. To thank you for your help, if you put the right cards into Trucy's magic panties, they'll magically turn into new cards!


THIS WEEK, THE REQUIREMENTS ARE...
Card 1
Card 2
❥ Basic: Deck name is a Noun
❥ Bonus: Begins with a Vowel
❥ Basic: Deck name is a Noun
❥ Bonus: Animal related (image or word)

You'll lose the cards you turn in, but for each basic requirement you fulfill, you will receive 3 random cards. Fulfilling the bonus, as well (i.e. turning in a noun with the letter X), will net you 1 random card each, for a possible total reward of 8 random cards!

Good luck! This round will remain open until Tuesday, May 30th!

Last week for the monthly challenge!


This banner was done by Moe ♥ Thank you~

an idol's acrostic trading post

A troubled idol needs to buy words from you so that he can finish his lyrics! He'll give you a card for every letter you sell to him and a bonus 3 cards for every whole word you can provide.

Basically, you need to trade to spell your words! The first letter of either the CARD or the PLAYER you trade with are the letters you use to spell your words. You will have a week to do so.

Once a month there will be a longer phrase that you can work towards to submit for a special prize at the end of the month! The monthly phrase will also include some kind of extra parameter (player trades can only be with red/yellow level players, only even numbered cards, etc)

For example if the word of the week is DESK. To get a 'D' I can trade with Delitan or I can trade the card defeated07. For trading cards you can either be the person trading the card AWAY or the person RECEIVING the card.

For player trades though you MUST trade with someone else. So I can't use 'Sammich' for the letter 'S'.

You cannot reuse the same player/card in one week. If the word is "EYE" you need TWO different players or cards that start with 'E'.

Trades from previous weekly challenges may be used for the monthly task, as long as the dates fit the criteria! However, if you submit both the weekly and monthly challenge in one week, you may not reuse a card/player name from the weekly challenge for the monthly challenge.

MONTHLY PHRASE: WEEKLY WORD: (SUBMIT) ✎
DONALD DUCK HAD A FEW WORDS TO SAY, AND THEY WERE...

To complete this month's challenge, you must trade with at least three different players. To get the comma, you must trade signatures. To get the ellipsis, tell me about your favourite song(s)!

The reward for successfully completing this month's challenge is 65 cards, 3 May release cards and 4 crayons! For getting the comma and ellipsis, you will get two additional May release cards!

Y - (traded XCARD for YCARD with PLAYERNAME) LINK




Please provide links of your trade. If you use a website logging system please link your log. However it is preferred that you have a link somewhere as opposed to email/website logs just because it makes it easier to check. Thank you!
only trades dated between 5/22-5/29 will count*
the exception is for the monthly task, where only trades dated between 5/1-5/29 will count
* the date completed. So if you start a trade on the 22nd and it ends on the 23rd it's fine to use. However if you start a trade on the 29th and it ends on the 30th it would not count. This is mostly to prevent trades from hanging over too far into the next week, I know it might be a little rushed that way but remember even if you can't get the whole word you can still get partial credit for most of the word!

Back to normal this week!



Haaa! I am Honda Tadakatsu's daughter, Ina, and I challenge you -

...you...have never trained with the bow? Ah, my apologies...

Maybe you could help me with my own training, to start? Just throw one or two (or three or four) of those cards of yours in the air, and I'll put as many arrows through them as I can before they hit the ground!

And in thanks for your help, I'll change their numbers to however many times I managed to hit them!

Rules:
- You can play up to four cards per round. Together or in separate comments as you like, it doesn't matter.
- You'll give these up to replace them each with a card of the same deck, but a different number.
- Numbers are randomized and not influenced by any other factor! The only guarantee is that you won't get the exact same card in return.

This round ends on Monday, May 29th!

Norma Beatty is searching for the Everlight, the magic stone able to grant every wish, and she got a tip that it's under a pile of Colors decks! But of course it won't be that easy to find which one. So with her friends off on adventures, she's turning to you guys for help! If everyone puts their brains together, ask questions and share information, there's no way we can't do this! She'll even give you a fair shake at the rewards.

... Still, only one person can win the race to find the treasure. And as everybody knows, to the first treasure hunter in the room goes the lion's share of the loot! Last one there's a rotten Eggbear!

the rules are behind here! )

Thanks for all your help last time! The color I was looking for was Yellow!

There you are! I've been looking everywhere for you! Miss Kamila is in trouble, and I need your assistance again!! I need to swap a card I found with something else in order to protect her, but they have to be the same color. The bad thing is... I can't see color because I'm a Pomeranian!
"Huh! She also looks like a bunny.. but might also be a person at times? I am meeting alot of animal humans this month!"



Can you tell me the color of this card so I can help Miss Kamila? I will sniff four cards + 2 special cards out for you and bring them back!

Last week's suspect was Sango from Inuyasha!



Ah, you must be the new assistant. I am Inspector Alfendi Layton of New Scotland Yard's Mystery Room department. Yes, I am also the son of Professor Layton, though now isn't the time to discuss that. I'm very close to tracking down the prime suspect of the case I'm working on, but I only have a brief description to work off of. Perhaps you can help me discern their identity so I can call them in for questioning?

This yellow duckling possesses a magic pendant that allows her to transform into a human teenage girl as well as her alter ego. Her normal persona is clumsy, excitable, and talkative while her alter ego is elegant, poised, and graceful. She is driven by her crush on a prince to help him gather the pieces of his missing heart and return them to him.


If you can tell me the name of the suspect and the series she comes from, I'll reward you with six random cards.

This round ends on Monday, May 29th!

Some of you might know Kamukura as the guy who was really into boats back in the day. Rumor has it he likes memes now. He's been trying to get into anime lately but sometimes he stumbles upon something that's hard to comprehend even with his numerous talents.

Today in No Context Theater... )

Come up with a possible explanation for the situation in the screencap! It can be anything and as silly or serious as you wish. Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with the series, the purpose of the game is not to guess what actually happened there! Same if you are familiar with the context - pretend that you aren't and make up something on your own!

Source of screencaps will more often than not be Anime Screenshots Without Context

For answering, you'll get 5 new release cards. Every answer is correct and feel free to comment on other people's answers! This round is open till Sunday, May 28th!
