Special tips for competing (and being eligible to win) in this game:

  1. As always, we’re looking for Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, BUT for this game please feature the use of a stencil as the focal point of your card.
  2. As always and for all of  the games at AAA Cards the definition of Clean and Simple (CAS) means that white space should not be patterned, embossed (heat or dry) or textured in any way at all.
