    The deadline has been extended almost 2 weeks to March 16, 2008!

    From www.jayisgames.com:

    "The deadline for CGDC5 has come and gone, and the entries are in.

    Looking over the 25 entries we have so far, although impressed, we think we could be a bit more impressed. Some of the entries need a couple more coats of polish, and many of you wished you had more time to finish up and get your entries in.

    The judges and sponsors have talked it over, and we have decided to allow a bit more development time by extending the competition deadline by almost 2 weeks.

    New deadline: Sunday, March 16, 2008 11:59PM (GMT-4:00)

    Remember, the theme of the competition is UPGRADE, so let's upgrade those entries with some polish. See you on the 16th!"

    Default I'm starting a competition to write CYOAs (starts next week)

    Hey everybody!

    I'm starting a write-your-own choose-your-own adventure competition to coincide with the opening of my little site, Adventure Cow. If you've never read a Choose Your Own Adventure, they're stories where every so often, you get to pick where you go next (it'll be like "Go to page 13 if you want to face the dragon, go to page 33 if you run away")


    (1) Timing
    The competition runs from next Monday (November 15, 2010) to a month from then (December 15, 2010).

    (2) How it works
    There are two options - you can enter in the Adventure League and write 150 pages, or the Fun League and write 50 pages (if you're strapped for time). More details online.


    If you have any questions, I'll be on this thread, you can shoot me an email at chris@adventurecow.com.
