• UXM OP Month One Contest - The Theme Team!

    Hello again, faithful TRP readers! We just closed up the last of the AvX contests, which means...TIME FOR MORE CONTESTS! Without further ado, it's time to move on to the UXM OPs.

    Unlike AvX, the UXM OP rewards don't have new basic actions for us. Instead, we're getting a bunch of new flavors of characters, not all of which are from UXM, so you might need to dust off those AvX dice to use your rewards. Each month's kit has three characters - a participation prize and two different prize characters. For month one, Marvel Girl: Humanity is the participation prize, with Emma Frost: White Queen and Phoenix: Dark Phoenix as the other prizes.

    Guess what - we've got copies of all of them up for grabs for our winners! 10 runners-up will receive a copy of Marvel Girl: Humanity, while 3 Grand prize winners will receive one copy of each of Marvel Girl: Humanity, Emma Frost: White Queen, and Phoenix: Dark Phoenix. Also, a big shoutout of thanks to Jared Wood, who sent us a number of the prize cards from this OP to let us make our prizes more numerous than normal.

    What do you need to do for a shot at the prizes? Well, with all the affiliation-based teams in DC, and the new movie inspiring some teams, I thought it'd be pretty fitting to ask people to come up with a neat thematic team for their entry. Give me four to eight characters/specific cards that have some theme tying them together, and tell me about it! For example, as exactly none of you might be surprised by, my entry would be Solomon Grundy, Brainiac, Wonder Woman, and Hulk - the Pants Aficionado team. Feel free to give as much, or as little, explanation as you'd like; entries will likely be featured on the podcast (or at least in an article), so everyone will get a chance to enjoy what our winners come up with (as opposed to just myself and the other TRP staffers, giggling like mad at our computers).

    As always, send your response to contest@thereservepool.com with the subject 'UXM OP Month One Contest'. We'll be accepting entries until 9 AM EDT, May 29, 2015, so make sure to get yours in by then. After that, we'll randomly pick the prize winners from our pool of entrants, and let them (and the world) know. Good luck, and I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this time!

      Cool contest. I've had a theme team I've been thinking about the last week or so.

      So this isn't specifically about making a team based on the cards? That gives me a lot more freedom.

      How many time are we allowed to enter? And if we are allowed to send in more than one team, would you prefer a single email or separate emails?
