The Southern Hemisphere is well represented this month. Is it because it is their summer and our winter? Great entries!

Indeed! Both contests had a really great diversity of countries representing. I'm glad to see the sheer internationality of TFF. ;)

Agreed..

"Poll ends 9th December" Not January? ;)

Mind you, I think it may take 11 months to decide on a favourite. .

Argh! I always forget to update that when I copy the formatting from the previous month's contest. I've fixed it so you now only have another week to decide. ;)

I find it easiest when we can keep the entries to 12 or less.  That way I can just roll the dice! :P

For those months just find someone who plays Dungeons & Dragons and roll their 20-sided die. :P

 

This month we have only 9 and 11 entries so a week should be long enough to decide. ;)

 

 

Cheers.

If two dice aren't enough, throw a third one :default_rofl:

The Vegas Voting System of tossing two dice would definitely put the first entry at a distinct advantage. ;)

My (actual) method has always been to think of the top one I would love to have found and then have in my collection to show others. ;)

 

 

Cheers.
