Post The Other Side of the Flagpole - Caption Contest!
Image

Contest rules and information:

-The winning caption will be added to next week's comic and put on the front page of NintendoFuse. As such, we ask that your submissions not be offensive, rude or vulgar. We want to keep the website and forum a great place where people of all ages can share their love of gaming.

-Each contestant is limited to one caption submission. If you post more than one, we'll take the first one you post. We want to keep the thread as easy to read and judge as possible, so the less clutter the better!

-All entries must be submitted before 12:00 a.m. on Monday, May 13, 2013.

-The prize is still being finalized. It will definitely be downloadable, but we are trying to figure out a way to increase it in value based on the number of participants we get, as gifting is still not possible on Wii U/3DS
-The information on prizes will be updated within a couple days
-We encourage you to invite friends to participate - even if it means more competition, it will be greater incentive for us to give away a better prize ;)


HERE IS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FLAGPOLE COMIC THAT YOU MUST CAPTION:

Good luck, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I apologize for the lateness of the update - It'll be coming soon! I was out of the city without a computer, so expect something within the next couple of days.

I shared this on Twitter via my personal account, as well as the official NintendoFuse account. I hope you get a decent amount of participants.

Thanks guys, I can't wait to get it started!

I was checking out the I Fight Dragons Kickstarter page (Which you should go support, because IFD is amazing), and the concept of "Stretch Goals" got me thinking about how I could make that work for this contest.

What I think I'll do is put up a list of games, and they "unlock" as potential prizes depending on the number of participants we get. For example, the tier 1 prize might be something short, simple and inexpensive like "Kersploosh!" or "BearShark: The Game", but as more people participate, bigger games like "Crimson Shroud" and "VVVVVV" will become available.

With his new iphone Bowser could finally complete his last evil deed, prank calling the Mushroom Kingdom.

So we've had three submissions. Little bit disappointing, but I thank all of you for contributing!

I enjoyed IamAlpharius's caption the most, "I owe HOW much in castle rent?". I guess I associate Bowser's failure in defeating Mario with large expenses (those Bullet Bills aren't cheap), and as a result he can't afford to buy his own castle.

Because we haven't had a ton of contributions, I don't believe we'll be giving away a HUGE prize, but I'll send you a private message and we can figure something out, IamAlpharius!

Thanks again to everyone for participating... hopefully if we do this again in the future, we'll have a bigger turnout!

I wanted to post a caption of him scolding an underling for running up his Bullet Bill expenses by leaving them on when Mario wasn't even there. I just couldn't find a way to make it short and funny enough to submit.

Some people have a way with words. Other people... uh... erm... not have way?

SV, this is only a minor problem. As indicated by your eloquent example, it is obvious you don't have a way with words in the English language, however, if you were to write in Latin, you'd surpass every single member of this forum; hoc certum mihi. :lol:

That stinks! No worries though, I'm sure we'll be having some contests again soon. Perhaps we can get some more tournaments going on again.

I had an idea for a caption, but I'm staff.

"Hello Comcast?" "Comcast is currently experiencing a very high call volume. Please hold for our next available representative."

Ah, even more great submissions! When I first drew this strip out, I felt like there were far too many possibilities for good captions. It's really neat to see what people come up with :D

What was your caption going to be when you drew the picture?

The problem was, I didn't have one. I had a couple brainstormed, but I didn't have a specific one that I thought was good enough to put up.
