• Team Brew Switcharoo Challenge 3: Into The Sunset



    Hello everyone! After taking a week off to focus on the hubbub that was Origins, we are back with another Team Brew Switcharoo Challenge! This time you are going to take ten random cards and, using a maximum of four swaps, attempt to transform it from "Go-Bot" to "Voltron"! To guide your swaps, we will randomly select a "Meta Rule" that will limit what you can choose and/or how the finished team must look.

    Using my favorite Dice Masters sorting website (dm.retrobox.eu), let's randomly select our starting point!

    http://dm.retrobox.eu/?view&cards=1x...31asm;3x120ygo



    Ok, that's a starting point. I have used a top secret method of selecting the Meta Rule* and will now convey the stipulation to you in the form of a haiku:

    Warm Glow of TV
    Cereal Bowl and Spoon Gripped
    PJs and Cartoons


    So the Meta Rule here is: Saturday Morning Cartoons! Only cards from YuGiOh and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can be swapped in!

    Are the creative juices flowing? Here are the particulars.

    1) Send entries to teambrewswitcharoo@gmail.com
    2) Each entry should include a link to the team (preferably from dm.retrobox.eu), a explanation of what you swapped and why you swapped it, and a story explaining how you think the Meta Rule was really selected. Also, please include your TRP Username.
    3) Entries will be scored on how effective the team is, how well it uses the original cards, and how off-the-wall it is. There is also a secret fourth parameter for judging...
    4) Entries must be received by Noon EST (-5 hours GMT) on July 7th, 2016.

    We will highlight the top teams and the best stories in two weeks!

    The results edition of Team Brew Switcharoo will also, sadly, be the last Team Brew Switcharoo**. That's right, we are riding off into the sunset. I am not going anywhere, however, and will soon be bringing back a TRP favorite. As far as Team Brew Switcharoo goes, please send your entries so we can give this feller a great send off!

    So, get to creating some combos, brewing some boffo bands of battlers, and throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks!

      Seems like an odd decision. This appears to be one of the sites most popular segments. What gives?

      OBN has been working hard behind the scenes to do bring the feature back that he referenced, and it has to do with an aspect of Dice Masters that he is REALLY passionate about. He's super excited about what he's doing and I hope that y'all will be too The most important thing for any of the projects that the TRP staff does is to love what they're doing, and when they need to make a change to something fresh, then that's what's best for all of us!

      I don't think it is the most popular, but it IS the one with the best graphic.

      As you probably know (because I always comment on it), TBS has been one of my very favorite features on TRP. I would have commented sooner but I was at a convention all weekend promoting my own work. (And then I was sleeping.) I will try to do my very best for the send off challenge. Thanks again for all the great inspiration in this series.

      Certainly has been one of my favorites! Sad to see it go, but I'm glad you are able to move into something more exciting for you. I'm looking forward to seeing what it is.
