Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
Fair Game

Description: Show us pictures of games and things associated with them: card games, board games, sportball games, video games, wild animals that are hunted, anything that falls under the definition of "game".

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however).See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Check stats or review whether you've used a photo before at Bibliostats .

Final view of a game of Catan, played last night at my local gaming group. I came in 2nd, two points behind the winner. Woo.

Playing a game of skill and chance. Whether carny games are fair is debatable.

This is a Babylonian game that dates back about 4,000 years and was played throughout the Middle East. Unlike the ancient Egyptian game of Senet, which we have lots of surviving boards but no rules/explanation of game play, the rules for the Royal Game of Ur/Game of 20 Squares were written down on clay tablets. It's a race game similar to backgammon and still pretty fun to play nearly 5 millennia later.

I had to be very patient for this shot, since the ducks usually leave when they hear you in the photo blind
