With a new game anticipated (if not yet formally announced), we have decided to make a few changes to the upcoming design contest schedule. Typically, new games for this franchise have released in about August, which would be in the middle of the upcoming CC contest. Add to that a further month and a half of designing and two months of judging on what might be an 'old' game and we no longer think that contest makes much sense.
So, the short update is that we won't run the CC contest this summer, instead leaving a break into Season 9. Sorry if that disappoints, but hopefully the rationale makes sense.
Instead, Season 9 will see a slightly rejigged formula. I've added dates below, where X represents the first day of the month after the new game is released (i.e. if release is August 21st, Dream Team would start on 1st September etc) and the number being three months. We will be able to update these for more clarity when we do have a release date. We're also bringing Major back into the fold after a couple of years of National Treasure, which I know many will be excited for.
Love seeing Dream Team and World Cup no longer running back to back. Fingers crossed we see some solid updates to the designer in the new game (splined OB please!!!)
Criminally Underrated CC - Revival Club but harder Camp Nelson - '21 Dream Team if the deadline were March 2022 Hidden Valley Club - '21 Parkland Top 9 at 9 Running Water - karacakes greatest triumph Tres Mojitos - I broke axelvonfersen Playa Pilar - '21 National Treasure Top 10 First Alt Paradiso de Vaca - Eric giggled at cows Revival Club - '20 RDC Finalist 1st Alt Maverick Dunes - first course, sucks
Doyley: We'll obviously be holding off on any next season talk until after the info is out on 22nd - we can make a plan of attack after we find out if it's a release day or a release date (in the future)

theclv24: I figured it might be interesting to a few folks here, and I Ihaven't gotten huge turnout on the raffles so a $10 gives you a decent chance to win.
