    1. @Jadefire
    2. @Shelko
    3. @jpastor

  • Upon receiving a prize in your mystery box or elsewhere, you have until you post your next entry to activate, use, or gift that prize. You may also exchange your prize for a favorite on your entry instead.

    For those who have an inventory of prizes, please feel free to trade them for favorites at a 1 prize = 2 favorites ratio or use them/gift them before you submit your next entry.
    @Jpastor:
    I'd like to exchange the following 3 prizes for favorite points on my entries.
    • Prize 3 - Glyph of Hileandr (Reroll): Cash this in any time to replace one of your mystery challenges with a new one.
    • Prize 82 - Freaky Friday: You and target mystery boxer may trade any unused prizes and incomplete mystery challenges with one another.
    • Premium Prize 8 - Wonderbar: Swap a prize in your inventory with a newly created prize of your choice. (You create the prize, but it must first be approved by me.)
    I'd like to cash in Premium Prize 86 - All-in Bundle: You will get X prizes of choice, where X is the number of deadline points you earn this deadline. (Fingers crossed it gets me something good.)

    I've been away for a while, but my latest mystery box a couple of pages ago contained the following:
    • Create an Equipment card
    • Create an Artifact Creature card
    Here is the equipment card.

    Here is the artifact creature card.

    I'd like to cash in my final prize (Prize 87 - Silver Key: Guarantees a new discovery in the box it's used to open.) to open a new mystery box, please.
  • Whoa, didn't realize how long it's been since I last came around; time to clean out my inventory.

    Starting a Rain Check Tournament, activating The Gold Plate for this deadline, cashing in a Blog Mention, and challenging @jpastor to a Kaiju Duel in lieu of finishing my current Mystery Box.

    Trading in seven other prizes (Quest Journal, A friendly game of…, Futuresight, Copycat, Wits & Wagers, That's the Spirit Duel, and Double Cheeseburger) for 14 favorites of your choice.

    One Mystery box please. :)
  • Gonna wipe the slate clean here and end the deadline

  • Mystery Boxes

    @stijnhommes
    Your mystery box contains:
    • A Mystery Challenge: Create a Lotus.
    @cadstar369 ;
    Your mystery box contains:
    • A Mystery Challenge: Create something unnatural.
  • @jpastor has the short fuse gone off on all existing prizes?  Are we back to a fresh start for everyone?

    I never did get to see what I would've gotten for cashing in my previous prizes, but I'll just take the prize count adjustment if they're gone now anyway.

  • @jpastor
    What happened to all the prizes that I activated back on November 8 to clean out my inventory? I was expecting the silver key to have an effect on the box I opened yesterday.
  • @Jadefire
    @stijnhommes

    I missed those activations, but I'll make sure they are all used properly. Let me tackle them today if I can. Bear with me. Thank you!
  • In the meantime, here is the Lotus I created for my latest mystery box.

    I'll open up a new box when all the activations have been sorted out.

    Another box please?


  • Mystery Box Update 2023

    Starting 2023, the Mystery Box Challenges will have a new system to help me keep up with them in this busier life I have.
    - Still 50/50 at prizes, but there will be no prize list any more. Prizes are created on the spot for you.
    - Leaderboards and stat keeping are going away.
    - All posts will be done on my phone now, so that I can check and update more regularly. As such, my usual formatting will decrease.
    - Deadlines are going away, but a featured card will be given as a box prize to the cardsmith with my favorite entry each month.

    Overall, these changes should not impact the core of the Mystery Box experience. The key here is improving participation.

    Cheers,
    James

    Chapter 5: In the ensuing chaos, the last officer dives for cover behind his vehicle.  The bandits have collected as much of their loot as they can carry on foot and make off down the street.  There is a moment of stillness when it seems as though everyone has gone.  The officer cautiously looks out from behind his vehicle to survey the carnage and a final shot rings out in the distance before he too falls to the ground.  The sniper is still in his nest.  As the sound of additional sirens begin to grow louder, you notice an ingot of some strange metal by your feet where you now stand.  It must’ve been thrown from the bandit’s vehicle during the collision.  With no one remaining who might’ve noticed your presence, you pocket the ingot and head back down the alley the way you came.  You’ll worry about trying to figure out what it is once you’ve cleared the scene.  Create a card that creates Treasure.

    The saga is finally complete.
  • I'll take a box.
  • Howdy people! (Been a year or so I feel since I was last here.) Do I still have a box I've never finished? If not, I'll take one.
  • @Zaheer_The_Grim welcome back!  This is the last box that you received without a corresponding card, does this look familiar to you?

    I'll also hand you a new mystery box. Feel free to complete the one Jadefire mentioned, or just complete this one, or do both if you're up to it. Also, welcome back brosky! It's been a while. I have some favorites for you as a welcome back gift. Drop any five cards you'd like me to favorite and I'll get on those.  

    Your mystery box contains:

    @cadstar369
    Thank you for stepping in for me these past few months. As a thank you, I'd like to offer up a shared Mystery Box for the three of you. You each get the prize listed and to ease back into Mystery Boxing, I've given you a lovely little mystery challenge to share.

    Your mystery box contains:
    3 Power Stones - One power stone for each of you. Guarantees a prize in the mystery boxes you open through next Friday, the 13th of January.
    - A Mystery Challenge: Create the Power Puff Girls. Legendary creature cards. One of you takes Blossom, one of you takes Bubbles, and one of you takes Buttercup.
  • I'll take Buttercup.
  • I’ll do Bubbles.
  • @stijnhommes

    Jpastor: When are you planning to sort out the activations from my earlier post (and the ones of Jadefire)?

    Further explanation of the design is in the card's comments.  It would be interesting if we all ended up using the character art from the same set.

    Could I get another mystery box with Power Stone activated?
  • @stijnhommes @Jadefire

    I believe these are the activations you speak of:

    Jadefire:
    1. I'll trade in my Premium Prize 18 - A Broadcast Feature for a Prize 75 - Shady Deal and use it, giving up my Prize 26 - Listerine to get two new prizes.
    2. I'll trade my Premium Prize 34 - Jadefire's Jostle for another Prize 75 - Shady Deal and use it, giving up my Prize 97 - Temple Ruins to get another two prizes.
    3. I'll use my Prize 55 - Legacy Community to get a Sculpture and activate it for the winner of the last deadline 12SidedGuy
    4. I'll use my Prize 51 - Discord Art Gallery Challenge as a solo challenge.



    stijnhommes

    - Favorites applied
     (Prize 87 - Silver Key: Guarantees a new discovery in the box it's used to open.) to open a new mystery box, please. Prize 87 translates to a prize for your next box... should have been given a prize back in November. Here it is:

    Masking Tape: Choose a mystery challenge from page 17 and page 59, combine the two to form a merged mystery challenge. Then challenge anyone to a duel or moshpit with that mystery challenge.

    Premium Prize 86 - All-in Bundle: You will get X prizes of choice, where X is the number of deadline points you earn this deadline. (Fingers crossed it gets me something good.) Premium Prize 86 is null. stijnhommes earned 0 points last deadline = 0 prizes





    Turns out i never announced the final deadline winners:
    1. @Shelko
    2. @Corwinnn
    3. @Jadefire
  • @Jadefire
    Let's start with the discord art challenge solo: ArtStation - Egyptian Pharaoh 【贰零壹伍】
    Who's supposed to build the 12SidedGuy card?
    Let's see the 4 prizes you swapped for...

    Pocketbook: Trade a favorite on one of my cards, for two favorites of your choice.

    Notebook: Jot down 2 or three ideas for cards you'd like to see made. Those ideas will be used in others mystery boxes somehow.

    Bibs: Next time we do a draft, you can draft, you can select something that's already been chosen.

    Candy Cane: A favorite + a comment on any red+white card you've created.






  • @jpastor I believe Sculptures are built by you.  Don't want you to get too bored with non-cardsmithing activities.
