    Hello Tribal Warriors,

    St. Patrick's Day is upon us! In honor of this most Irish of days, write a limerick containing references to Tribal Wars 2! You can rhyme about the game, make friendly digs at fellow players, relate an anecdote from your play, or praise our own fair Gwendoline (shown here in her St. Patrick's finery!)

    Prizes
    First Prize will receive 500 crowns!
    Second Prize will receive 300 crowns!
    Third Prize will receive 100 crowns!


    We need 10 entries to pay out the prizes. Get your tribe mates involved!

    Entries must be posted before the end of the day on St. Patrick's day, March 17th, by server time. (Eastern Daylight Time.) One entry per player, of course. Moderators are welcome to play, but cannot win.

    Judging will be done by the moderation team. We will take likes into account, so we will leave two days for the community to register approval. Judging will be completed by March 19th, with prizes rewarded shortly thereafter.

    Judging note: Limericks have a tradition of being rather risque. You can be as ribald as you like, as long as you stay within forum guidelines. (Nothing from Nantucket, please!) :rolleyes:

    Sample

    May the best poet win!

    Bubbles was a man from Bonaire
    Who was banging Biz on the stair
    When the banister broke
    He doubled his stroke
    And finished him off in midair

    There was once a man called bizmoney,
    he thought he could steal all the honey,
    But then came the bees,
    From behind the trees,
    and now he looks scummy.

    There once was a player named Biz
    who thought he was really the Shiz.
    He talked a big game
    but his nukes were all lame,
    and now we don't know where he is.

    Over halfway there! We need 10 entries to qualify for rewards.

    I will note, that if every limerick is all about the same subject... a fresh new topic might be garner more attention from the judges. It is easier to stand out as the single rose in the corsage, compared to one of the many baby's breath.

    If you're spying you know that it's true
    I've got way more troops than you do
    Don't be a fool
    I have a rule
    If you hit me then I'll hit you too

    Well, we didn't get to the 10 responses we needed to give out prizes. I am going to see if I can hand out partial prizes anyway. So like your favorites, and I will see what I can do.
