I'm really sorry to all players who will think this is out of the blue. The last month was extremely stressful for me and though now I am on a break from school and work, my personal life has not provided me with a lot of times for Photos anyway. At first I considered getting a co-owner to help me out run this community that, believe or not, takes some hard work and time; but then I remembered that by September, once school and work start again, I definitely won't have as much time as I did last semester. Then I decided to give it up for adoption to someone else and even ran the idea through the staff, not many replied, but the ones who did were helpful. In the end I decide the best to do is to close down Photographs TCG. I apologize again for the sudden announcement, but I don't think there is an alternative right now.

As all of you, I really love Photographs and enjoy playing this game, but the lack of player activity keeps me from giving the game over to someone else. I've tried making changes: having less games, trying to come up with interesting event ideas, waiting until summer to see if activity picked up, but nothing really worked. The player activity didn't decrease because the community wasn't running either, the games were being posted, services were replied to on time and releases were posted on time, too; yet players left and no donations were being made. As much as it pains me to let people down as the owner and also to leave this game where there are still decks I want to collect, the time has come to close down the game before things get worse.

Again, I can't say how sorry I am enough. I doubt Photographs will open again, but it was an amazing experience to me and I hope you guys won't hate me too much. I suspect some of you be angry and I accept that, you can voice out anything in the comments as always. Thanks to all the players who stuck around until the end and all the moderators and deck makers who made my job easier and the game fun. I will remove posting rights to everyone who has them so no more games will be posted. Players, please do not comment on posts anymore. Moderators, please don't reply to comments anymore either. This was an extremely hard decision because I'm really attached to Photographs, but enough is enough and I know that seeing it slowly die will make me sadder in the long run.

I re-opened the community out of selfishness, even if I also wanted to play with everyone and in a way I'm also closing it out of selfishness, but I really think this is for the best. Thank you.

Biodata is a game that is posted at the beginning of every month. A picture of a character will be shown and you have to tell me who the character is, which series he/she comes from, and at least 3 facts from his/her biodata (eg Birthday, Height, Bloodtype...you name it!) It can be a combination of any 3 pieces of information about that person.

For every piece of information that you get right, you get one card. If you get everything correct, you can get the full prize of five cards! Sounds simple enough, right? So what are you still reading this for? Get to it, you guys! This round ends at the beginning of September.

Hello everyone! Just letting you know that Matching Cards is now a monthly game. So, have you ever noticed that some cards from different decks actually share the same original image? For example,

Both of the crops from the cards above come from this image.

For this game, your job is to find either the 'matching card' (the card that share the same image as the one posted up) or find the original image used for both cards posted! This will vary from round to round.

This round you get...Collapse )

This round will end on September 6th.
