Magic: The Puzzling Winter Contest

In the Magic: The Gathering group in with Wizards Community, there's an opportunity for you to win a copy of Season's Beatings, the 2009 Magic: The Gathering holiday card.

Players have enjoyed solving puzzles based on a pre-setup table of Magic cards for years. Most recently we have even included them in Duels of the Planeswalkers in it's Challenge mode. Do you think you have what it takes to design one of these? Now is your chance!

We want you to create your own Magic: The Puzzling and show it to us. Because it's cold here in Renton, WA during the month of January I want your submission to adhere to the following restrictions, and will be judged against how well you do.

- The puzzle has an over all winter theme. How this looks is up to you
- The puzzle can be solved in one turn. "You opponent can win next turn, chill them out now!"
- Solving your puzzle should be challenging. We don't want it to be too easy!
- We want to have fun figuring out your puzzle!
- Please only use Vintage legal cards.

For more information, head to the official announcement, read the official rules, and submit your entries here!

The deadline is Monday, January 25 at 6 p.m. PST, so you'd better get going!

Have you seen an interesting Magic discussion somewhere? Let us know at @dailymtg or post in our own forums (the "Discuss on the message boards" link below will help) and maybe we'll feature it on Community Spotlight!
