the challenge is Off the Rails. make a card that does something totally different of something that requires you to do something outside of normal game play. Feel free to go crazy, just don't torture your opponent.

Off the Rails

Normal Spell
reach to the sky to target 1 face up monster you control: that target gains 800 ATK / DEF x the number of feet you reached until the end phase.

(posting from a mobile device and would very much apriciate if someone would copy/paste the rules from V.6)

Cards must have everything that the type of card normally has. Monster cards have Levels (or Rank), Type, Attribute, Sub-Type, ATK, DEF, and effects if they are Effect monsters. Spell/Trap cards have Attributes, Types (Field, Counter, Continuous) and effects. Try not to forget the basic traits of your cards.

2. Avoid the Forbidden List at all costs. Some Challenges may sidestep this rule.

3. It must be usable. If you would not use it in a duel, please refrain from it.

4. If you take part in one or more challenges, please state which one by citing the name of the Challenge or the post number of the challenge so that participants are known. The Challenge name(s) or post number(s) must be bolded at the top of each post taking part in a challenge.

5. Challenges in this topic aren't graded, but other posters may voice their opinions about your created cards and rate them. This allows for more participation.

6. The last person to post cards in a topic before a new topic is needed or a person agreed upon prior to the end of the topic is the person to create the new edition of the topic.

7. The theme of the topic will be in the topic title after the Version #. If it is not, then simply look at the first few posts for information.

8. Any person may make their own Challenges for others to try their hand at. If you wish to see what people will create or if you wish to challenge them, have at it. If your challenge falls into the lines of another Challenge, please list the origin Challenge, then your suggested one.

This one I came up back when there was a Dark Counterpart theme, but never got to post it. Never made a card before, though, so...

Dark Thesaurus
1800 ATK/1400 DEF
You can target one face-up monster on the field except for this card: inflict 100 damage to your opponent for each word in its effect. This effect can only be used once while this card is face-up on the field.

I was going to make it 200, but then I realized that anything at Stardust Dragon level or above equals instant OTK. Same with the no self-targeting - otherwise, it's a guaranteed 4000 damage (which was originally intentional). There's still Empty Jar and Wind-Up's tricks for bypassing that last clause, though, so...kiss kiss, burn decks. ^_^
All above is completely true and accurate, unless it isn't.
