This is the August 2014 Picture of the Month contest.

How to submit an image?
Just add a geeklist item, where it asks for a ImageID add the number of your photo there. Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry, where "xxxxxx" is the ImageID number, to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better, and make sure to remove the space. If you have questions please geekmail me and I will help.

Rules:

1) You can only submit a single entry with only one image in it.

2) That image has to be one of your own. If you like Laura Foobar's picture of dogs playing Die Macher, ask her to submit it.

3) The image was uploaded during the month in question.

4) Images from your User Gallery are not eligible, but images from any other Gallery that has successfully passed the image modding process are eligible - Game, Designer or Publisher.

5) Users may vote for (give a thumb up to) as many entries as they wish.

6) Winners will be declared when the next month's list goes up.

7) You may not offer any kind of inducement/bribe to users in return for their vote(s), but you can invite other users to participate and vote. Feel free to spread the word!

8) Entries should not be edited once submitted

9) I will randomly reorder this list so that the first-come first-thumbed effect is lessened.

10) This contest is open to all subdomains on the geek, so lets see what the best images look like and remember if you really like the image to click on it and also give the original a thumb.


Prizes

First place: 50
Second place: 25
Third place: 10


SPECIAL PRIZE FOR THIS MONTH ONLY

We have a special guest designer for this month:

Game designer:

GOOD LUCK!

This was taken during a power outage that lasted a couple of days this summer. My wife and I were playing by the light of an oil lamp. As a store manager at a videogame store, with a house where the kids have always had a consistent supply of electronics to lose themselves in, I find it refreshing when we can unplug and enjoy ourselves away from a computer or TV screen. So, something like this leaves me like a kid in a candy store. Any time the power goes out, I'm immediately excitedly thinking board games!

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

Tried to spruce up a boring box shot. Muted colour pallet to go with the theme and something visually appealing with the game set up in front of the box.
