• Team Brew Switcharoo Challenge: Second Time Around



    Hello again everyone! Normally, I engage in an experiment by taking ten random cards and trying to turn them into a fighting force of fearsome ferocity by swapping out only four cards. Today, however, I'd like to try something a little different. Not so different that it has never been tried before... but that's not the point. Today, I'll invite you all to play along at home and, using the random cards and Meta-Rule I select, build your own team!

    Let's look at our starting line-up for today's festivities:
    http://dm.retrobox.eu/?view&cards=1x...34avx;3x114ygo



    So far, so good. Have any ideas yet? Wait until you see this: you can only swap in RARE Characters and Non-Basic Actions.

    We will judge the submitted teams on the following criteria:
    1) How good is the team overall?
    2) How original is it?
    3) How well does it use the original cards?
    4) Is it thematic or funny?
    and
    5) Can I spell out the name of a US President using the first two letters of each card?

    Please send entries to teambrewswitcharoo@gmail.com. If you used dm.retrobox.eu (and why wouldn't you?), please include the link to your team, your TRP Username, and a short explanation of the thought process behind your swaps. The best and most favoritest teams will be featured next week on Team Brew Switcharoo!

    Teams are due by Thursday, 4/21 at Midnight EST (or 3 AM on 4/22 GMT).

    Get those creative juices flowing and throw some stuff at the wall to see what sticks!

      I just want to make sure I'm reading the rules correctly; do you mean that my 2 basic Action cards are fixed and can't be changed, or just that besides BACs I can only switch in Rares?

      Only the Non-Basic Actions and Characters have to be Rare. If you want to swap any BACs, you can do that with no restrictions.
