    The Classic Trilogy Rewrite Contest is BACK! This is a game where the host (me) picks a scene choice to either write from scratch, or a scene from the three existing Classic Trilogy films to rewrite. The game has no sign up list, as simply posting a scene for the challenge automatically makes someone a contestant in that round, although there is an entry deadline that contestants have to abide by.

    This is game is perfect for anyone who has ever said to themselves, ?Hmm, I think this scene could be improved? and ?I?m a pretty creative person? so they can show us all what they?ve got! I don't want to ramble on in this thread about the game, so instead I'll link you to the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/classic_trilogy/b10002/29584552/p1/]current game[/link] so you can read the guidelines and view previous winners and current entries.

    Glad to see that there's interest!

    I'm considering a minimum word rule (nothing too outrageous) only because, last time this was active, people would put up two sentence entries expecting to be taken seriously (or as a joke to game the system). I highly doubt there would be a maximum word rule, though.

    Bah! I hate double posting! [face_blush] :p

    Anywho, I'm glad to see that there's some interest. I hope to kick this off in the next few days, and when I do I'll hopefully see you all there! :D

    Let the games begin!

    The first challenge is up in the CT board. You can find it [link=http://boards.theforce.net/classic_trilogy/b10002/29584552/p1/]here[/link]. I'll be sending everyone who expressed interest a PM to notify them of this shortly.

    Good luck! :)

    The CT Scene Rewrite Contest, Game 2: I love you, Jenny

    Now obviously "I love you, Jenny" is from the film Forrest Gump, but the name "Jenny" is also the name of a deleted character from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Jenny is a girl that Han Solo hangs out with and kisses in the Mos Eisley cantina in the original cut of Star Wars. That's all that's really known, but here's a picture:

    [image=http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/8715/jennyswlx6.jpg]

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a scene or sequence with Han Solo and Jenny in Tatooine just before Chewbacca introduces Han to Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. You can write it however you want (script, narrative, haiku, whatever), so long as it meets the 100 word minimum, and you can write whatever you want. There are no restrictions other than what I've already told you.

    Scenes are due in on Thursday, January 15th at 11:59pm BOARD TIME/PACIFIC STANDARD TIME, after which point a poll will be started to vote for the winner. If you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck!

    I also just want to note that despite my previous challenge to him, TwiLekJedi did NOT enter the contest, despite his scene suggestion being what became the first round of this game. I am once again challenging him, in public, to enter this contest or face public humiliation for being a coward. Your choice, my friend. :p
