Charades13_RED01 by jademacalla Charades13_RED01 by jademacalla
It's time for Stock Charades 2013! And this is Championship Level Stock Charades!

For those of you who do not know how to play Stock Charades, it's easy; I try to recreate an instance from a visual pop culture reference. Could be a frame from a film, a panel from a comic book, a famous book cover, album art, you name it; and you have to guess the reference.

I obviously don't do sets, but I try to get the character(s) costume, attitude, and pose as close to the original as possible. In the interest of fair play I will note when there is an important difference between me and the original.

NOTE: The difference between me and the original in this round is that I am not bald.

This cycle of Stock Charades will be a summer-long contest so there are a few new rules:

1) 1 guess per person per round. This image is the first image in Round 1. Guesses must be made via Note to this dA account. If you make a guess in any public comment you will be disqualified from this round. Everyone has a chance to get points on each round.

2) Anyone who guesses this round's answer correctly without a hint gets 10 points ('cause I think this is a VERY tough one :D ).

3) There will be several hints given (no more than 1 per day) until this round closes at 23:59 PDT of Thursday, 6 June 2013. Each hint will reduce the point value of this round by 1; i.e. if you guess the reference after the third hint you will get 7 points. Since you only get one guess per round, the strategy lies in balancing your confidence in your answer against the benefit of future hints.

4) Stock Charade 13 - Round 1 closes at 23:59 PDT of Thursday, 6 June 2013. The answer to this round will be posted at that time.

The person with the most points on 01SEP13 will win a 3-month premium subscription to dA. Good luck.

Forgot to ask: are new guesses supposed to be made in the same note?
Reply
:iconjademacalla:
jademacalla Featured By Owner May 30, 2013
Only one guess per person per round, so I would send a new note for each round.

It kept sliding down the glass and hitting me in the face! Apparently, this character likes his water COLD.

Hey! When are we going to chat over a cup of java?!

Wow, you must be older than you look. ;-) I'll assume that's not an actual guess. I have a feeling you might get this one, so send a note when you do.
