So what do you have to do?:

You need to read the rules below and then create a unique Mini-Team-Mate who will be your buddy for all of your pictures. This can be as simple just a headswap, we just want you to have a unique minimate for your pictures. Then you need to look at the challenges below and take a picture for each of them.

We'll have regular challenges worth 1-3 points, unless noted differently. Every completed challenge will get 1 point with possible extra points for effort and entertainment. Instead of all the challenges listed up front, they're going to be released over several months with the contest ending at the end of the year. There are also hidden challenges! Be creative, the secret to this contest is to have fun and just go with what you can do.

The winner is the person with the highest points total or in the event of a draw: the best collection of entries as decided by our judges.

3. Only one picture per challenge should be submitted and a different picture for each challenge.

4. All entries will be posted in this thread. You will make one post in this thread and then update it as needed with pics of your completed challenges. Keep all other discussion in the discussion thread.

5. Some challenges may be time related so will only get points if submitted within that time frame.

7. With the exception of the timed challenges, you may change your entries up to the end of this contest.

8. Since you will be able to see other member's pictures, do keep in mind the extra points for effort and entertainment. You may want to post your pics quickly in case someone else has a similar idea. Also, don't expect extra points if you copy someone else's idea. You're welcome to post date/time posted in this thread next to your pictures.

Well, I just can't resist.

Teaming with me again this year will be Skrunt, who would like to be called Chad from now on. He thinks having a normal name will help him to assimilate into society better, I told him to just ditch the mohawk, but hey, what do I know.

Chad currently works as a CPA at a major accounting firm. He was formerly a murderous alien hell bent on destroying planet Earth, but has since grown out of that stage and is trying to embrace his sensitive side. He now enjoys listening to smooth jazz and cuddling with his pet hairless cat, Justin Bieber. Chad's favorite color is blue.

Allow me to introduce my new Hunt Buddy, Sergeant X!


#01 - Mini-team Mate, Sergeant X!


Born on a world in which mighty marvels do battle with capcom competitors, Sergeant X joined a man named Dante and the Merc With a Mouth Deadpool to defeat Galactus. It was something of a duplicitous alliance though, for as soon as the battle was won, X snuck into Deadpool's home and stole his X-Men uniform. Disgused as a member of one of the most well-known superhero teams in history, X went forward to rid the world of evil once and for all.

This lasted 13 days. He then got bored and quit.

Now X sits at home, hanging out with friends and playing video games. His future is uncertain and with no real goals, he my drift in mediocrity forever.

Only The Hunt can save him now...

Here's my Mini-Team-Mate- little b!


After having a thrilling time helping me with the Hunt contest in 2007, little b was filled with excitement about the possibilities of life. Encouraged by his wife pretty p, little b moved his family to Atlanta where he enrolled in the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts to pursue his dream of becoming a world-class chef. The hours were long, and little b was rarely home, putting a tremendous strain on pretty p, who had to juggle two jobs to support the family and take care of their teenage son Ampersand. little b struggled in his classes, and felt inadequate compared to the other students, so he began drinking heavily. With little b distracted by school and pretty p distracted by work, no one noticed when Ampersand began hanging out with the wrong kids and performing petty crimes.

After graduation, under pressure by pretty p to find a job, little b accepted started working at Applebee's. Working there made little b feel even more like a failure, and he began yelling and having horrible arguments with his family. After being fired from Applebee's for stealing drinks from the bar, little b came home to find pretty p had left to go live with her mom. little b blew up at Ampersand, who then stormed out of the house. Ampersand was arrested that night following a angst-filled rampage that included torching the very Applebee's he blamed for his family's woes. The news devastated little b, and in the following years he became a homeless drifter, lost in grief and booze.

Today, little b is sober and in therapy, taking life one day at a time. He and pretty p are trying reconciliation. little b hopes that competing in this year's Hunt contest will be a positive experience for his new life.

BEHOLD Mecthulhu


After a bitter defeat in a previous Hunt, Dr.Thodt spent years researching how to harness and control evil powers. His previous research led him to believe that humans were too weak of a subject to be a conduit for his plans. The doctor knew that the greatest evil was that of the forgotten elder god Cthulhu but controlling it would be the most important aspect. After experimenting on unwilling geists, Dr. Thodt found that he could use the electrical field created by machinery to trap and control them. Finally, the day came to pull the dark lord Cthulhu from his slumber and into the shell the doctor had created for it. The equipment did what it was designed to and with surprising ease the transfer had been accomplished. The doctor realizes the success of the process is only partially due to his own effort and that had the dark god not desired this, it would not have worked. So Dr. Thodt waits for the god to break free from his hold, knowing Cthulhu is a patient god. Until then, the doctor is only too happy to control it and use it in hopes of winning the hunt.

It's on!

I have the privilege to hunt along with my avatar - that's Sean Connerpool, bub! - just like last time where we were pretty successful - which wasn't because of you, lamo!

Anyway, what can I say about my avatar - Sean Connerpool! He suddenly popped up a few years ago and is since then usually mocking me - I just think you're lame and I decided to help you out to get a little more popular here! I'm not sure why, maybe I have this thing for losers named Bob.

I must confess that he's pretty good at what he does and what he does is... totally tubular, dude!

I guess, that's about as much background as I can give.

Here's what we did so far. Click on the thumbs to see the bigger pic. Enjoy:

My official hunt buddy is Charlie Kelly from Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia!


Charlie is an angry individual unable to cope with daily problems and prone to emotional outbursts. He maintains poor personal hygiene, lives in squalor, frequently abuses inhalants such as glue and spray paint,and like the rest of The Gang, drinks copious amounts of alcohol regularly,Charlie exhibits difficulty reading and writing and has generally poor communication skills. Despite this obvious handicap, Charlie has on many occasions fancied himself to be a lawyer of superior skill, leading to disastrous results when he is actually forced to deal with legal matters.
