Does anyone like games?
How about video games?
We like video games and we suspect a few of you do too.
This year’s Barcode Shmarcode theme is video games.
Re-create something from a memorable game incorporating your valid Shmoocon Barcode.
Go Bananas! Use all available resources to show off your hacking skills.

RULES FOR ENTRY ARE SIMPLE

In fact, there is only one – your barcode must scan valid for ShmooCon 2017 registration.  If it doesn’t scan, you cannot enter the contest (although we may still award points for effort, so you know, try).

Our weapon of choice is the Motorola DS4308 or the flak cannon.

ENTRIES WILL BE JUDGED ON THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA

  • Best use of theme – ShmooCon is about all the games this year, not just Hack Fortress!  Reach your limit break and achieve Final Heaven.
  • Originality – Creativity is the Tetris 4-long stick of hacking.  Stickers are boring like camping the spawn point… just saying “Don’t be a griefer”
  • Best use of materials – The BFG wasn’t made in a single day; you can score epic frags with a more little effort.

The top 3 entries will each win a coveted ShmooCon barcode for ShmooCon 2018.

JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED THAT – THE TOP 3 ENTRIES WILL EACH WIN A COVETED SHMOOCON BARCODE FOR SHMOOCON 2018.

Are you on the path of destruction? Will you make your time? Have the Ayys already won?  Is your energy bar full?

Once again @ForgottenSec and @DA_667 are serving as your judges (their favorite games are public).  Look for them near registration on both Friday and Saturday (times will be posted in the program).  Winners will be announced at closing ceremonies.
