Hello again all Buffet readers. BA Benny's Buffet is proud to present its first contest, after a couple of teaser posts I have finally decided to pull the trigger. I have seen and entered several contests in my short time here in Blogoland and even won one and placed in another so I figured why not try to host my own.
My idea is to have a Scrabble/Word Jumble type of contest. Below you will see 29 letter patch cards (some are autos too) in alphabetical order. Very simply make as many different words as you can out of them. This is also a chance to show off my Letter patch collection.
A few rules too follow.
- All entrants must be followers of BA Benny's Baseball Card Buffet so please join on the side if you are not already a follower. (Yes I am shameless and want to add followers)
- Only one entry per person so take your time and write them all down and make sure before you send your entry.
- All words must be at least three letters. Plurals will be counted as their own words. Example ~ "card" and "cards" would be 2 different words. I figure this will help build up the points a little bit.
- Each letter/card can be used once per word. If a letter appears more than once on the list you can of course use it.
- Names of people or places will not be allowed. The only names allowed are professional team names from any professional league.
- Scoring will be as follows:
Baseball related word = 2 points
Any other sports related word = 1.5 points
- Prizes will be determined by the number of entries. (I stole this from The Collective Trolls contest a little while back.) More info below the pictures.
- Contest begins now and will end Tuseday, May 4 at 6pm New York time.
