Super Mario World!
To be the last Mario standing, and use your powers to take down Bowser and free Princess Peach, who still won't acknowledge you!
This contest has 12 players, and each player will start with a powerup. This powerup serves two purposes. One, it gives you a restriction on the cards you can make. Two, it protects you from being eliminated if you do poorly.
Each round will have a criteria. You must then make a card that follows that criteria AND all the restrictions from your powerups. I will rank the submissions from top to bottom, and the bottom two contestants will take a hit. If you have a powerup, you are saved from the hit, but you lose your powerup (and therefore the associated restriction). However, if you have none, you will be eliminated from the contest.
Earning More Powerups:
Each round, the person who comes in first hits the , which gets them a new powerup chosen at random from the ones they don't have. This gives them another safeguard against elimination, but also another restriction to follow. Also, there will be a Hidden Criteria throughout the game. If a contestant's card matches the hidden criteria, they also hit the , and the hidden criteria changes
