You Are Games

ArtbegottiHAPPY NEW YEAR! Nearly. It's the end of the year, so everybody's celebrating different holidays in different ways. Perhaps you're getting your presents wrapped or lighting candles, menorahs, or kinaras. Or, perhaps you're getting ready to celebrate the start of 2011 with loved ones, a handful of confetti, and a plate of pork and sauerkraut. Maybe you're hanging bosc pears from the living room furniture and stapling sweaters to the ceiling. However you celebrate, we're asking you to put the cup of punch down and give us a hand.

bs-contest-areyouken.jpgTake a gander at the festive Babylon Sticks cartoon to the right, created by our resident toonmeister, James Francis. Can you come up with a party-worthy punchline to fit the scene? If you think you've got one, post a comment below using your Casual Gameplay account (we get a hold of the winner using the email address attached to it, so make sure it's up to date). Multiple entries are allowed, but try to stick with a gaming theme. All entries are due on Monday, December 27th at 11:59 PM (GMT-5:00). If we pick your caption, it will be featured in next week's Babylon Sticks and you'll win a Humble Indie Bundle!

We've got a bit of legal merriment we need to mention. Keep in mind that this is an all-ages site, so your captions need to stay clean and profanity-free. Also:

  • All entries submitted to this contest become the property of Casual Gameplay.
  • You must be at least 13 years of age to enter.
  • Void where prohibited.
There are only so many shopping days left, so warm up a cup of good cheer and start punchlining!

Also, don't forget about the Berzerk Ball comment contest, which also ends on December 27th!


"I warned you about those Marvel girls, but no, you never listen."


"Told you not to fight me for the paper."

"It's better than Za Warudo."


Seems like I was right about there being a monthly B. Sticks contest now.

"Alrightey! We're one year closer to the apocalypse!...What's the matter, Ryu?"


Listen:"One blue comet makes physicists think about redefine celestial mechanics"


"Cheer up! There are plenty of contractors in here."


Cheer up, Ryu. Says here that "Haidouken" is the new "OMG" for 2011.


"Look! Another New Year bash...on New Year Day!"


"Don't worry about it, according to the paper drywall prices are going down!"


I don't really remember what happened last night either, but apparently it left us scheduled for a "Capcom Vs. JiG" next month.


" oh why did i bet that i can beat that guy in karate. Now i lost my house, i don't even have a fire place, this place stinks and don't remember bashing in to the walls last night"

"well i told you so. oh don't be sad lets celebrate with a glass of beer. look at least the rent has lowered in this area and your horoscope says that you'll have a great chance of wining a competition or bet! ..... oh waite that was last months paper"


"It's written here they've just invented something named DOORS"

"Well you've been reported as a meteor and a UFO, but I think it's important to remember your power level is over 9000."


After a disastrous night Ryu just wanted some quiet time, then Ken walks in "Oh look you made the front page!"


"I told you Ryu, that "street fighting" would be a bad party theme!"

"Damn, we came in 2nd after Hello Kitty!"

"Great Job protecting that sofa from getting stains Ryu!"


Good thing the confluence of Link Dump Friday and New Year's Eve only happens every 400 years.


The paper says 'Mega Super Duper Street Fighter Alpha Beta Turbo CE Tournament Edition Y2k11 Plus' was a success!


"Hey, check it out, they saw the fireball from SPACE!"


"So Ryu, what was it like to kiss Blanka?"

"Shut up Ken."



"Stop me if you've heard this before, but can I borrow a cup of sugar?"


I warned you not to watch "The Legend of Chun-Li" sober!


Dude, your Horoscope for today is terrible!


"Good news: the party was a smash hit. Bad news is, the party was a smash hit."

(I was going to say "How-do, Ken", but that would've only worked if the characters were switched.)


"Huh....looks like there's a matinee of "The Hangover" at the Cineplex today."

matthias720 December 23, 2010 1:16 PM

I told you not to power up during the party, but nooooo, you wouldn't listen.


It's says that everyone who donated to Humble Indie Bundle 2 got even Humble Indie Bundle 1

"Don't go in your room, somebody took a giant Hadouken on your bed."

Yor The Hunter December 23, 2010 3:17 PM

"Sure, things got out of hand last night... but look at the bright side. At least you're not in congress!"

"You were right. There's no such thing as Dance Dance Revolution: Street Fighter Edition."

"Remember when we only used to do this to cars?"
(old school bonus stage joke...)

"So it turns out you don't *actually* get points for destroying property. Who knew, right?"

"Hey, look! Our party made the Obituaries page!"


"Kuyo... what did I say about New Year's sake again?"


cheer up, they're fixing the pothole on 7th street!


"I'm you from the future. no time to explain."

BuenoCabra December 23, 2010 5:37 PM

I told you to take it easy on the Dragon Punch.


"Dude, you really need to learn when the next round is one too many."

Cheeseable December 23, 2010 6:09 PM

"That's it, it's official: you are the Grandmaster of the Drunken Fist"

"Did you hear? Scientists say video games make people more violent."

Stage name December 23, 2010 9:12 PM

"Heads up! Comin' through! . . . Mazes sure are easier when you have a black belt in karate."


"It says here they're releasing another of our games! Think we should clean up the last one's burning wreck?"


I hate to double-post, but I'd like to clarify one thing: I've never actually played Street Fighter. I was just going for funny.


Whatever it was we did last night, man, GameScore gave it a 9.8/10!

Dragonfang1215 December 23, 2010 11:15 PM

"I told you it was up,up,down,down,left,right,A,a,b,b, not up,up,down,down,left,right,START,a,b,b."

warriorofgod13 December 23, 2010 11:55 PM

Heck of a party last night. But hey, your combo made the paper!

warriorofgod13 December 23, 2010 11:59 PM

"Well, that's one news years resolution down."


"So, I take it someone told Blanka about the party last night."


Ummm...Ryu...when the kids asked for Fireballs....they meant the candy.


You don't say Happy New Year to Chuck Norris... Chuck Norris says Happt New Year to you.

hughperman December 24, 2010 3:13 PM

"The paper says it was the best fireworks show the city's ever had, but I agree we should start outside next time."


"It will be fine," you said. "That's just a superstition. You're completely insane," you said. Well, guess who gets to say "I told you so"? Here's a hint: He's holding the newspaper that reports that his best friend has just been voted "Biggest Wimp in the World" in his right hand.


"Well, at least the car's in one piece this year!"


"I think you overdid the party last night, Joe"
