One thing that I like is Haiku....so I'll try having Haiku Wednesdays for each game's forum.

The best Haiku (contemporary 5-7-5 syllable style) wins 100 gems. Winners are selected by me (right before the next week's Haiku) and are heavily influenced by forum feedback...keep in mind I like the funny and the creative.

I'll start it off easy:

Kingdom Age, Rage! Rage!
Dragons, Monsters, fight them all
Battle others now!

Good luck!

-er

EDIT: Any scores I give are rough/tentative scores and do not determine the winner (but higher scores will usually win)

one hundred gold prize
is not worth nearly as much
when incomes are high


(my attempted play on the gold/gem typo when many people have >5000 gold per hour income rates.)

Pandora's box calls
somehow my wallet opens
My wife's curse follows...

Honorable mention = 50 gems


In stillness of night
A rusty knife beckons
I awake bleary-eyed

Honorable mention = 50 gems


Dragons scorch the skies
Rival swords amid the glow
'Til golden waves break

Honorable mention = 50 gems


Box opens in 5.
Daddy, I want the iPad!
No, go play outside.

Must collect manors.
Daddy, I want the iPad!
No, go watch TV!

G** D****t, honey!
Give her the iPad right now!
You're worse than a kid!

Winner....100 gems
