Size and Space Rules
You will be limited to a maximum size of a 2ft cube not including a real cube, we strictly mean the maximum space available is 2ft x 2ft x 2ft x 2ft your piece does not have to include a cube. But definitely think outside the box in the piece you create!
If using a gameboard, we suggest making it so that it can also be displayed with the board in its half-folded position so it fits on standard smokeshop shelving.
Any video displays or game consoles must also fit within the 2ft cube requirement.
We will not be providing any electrical for this event so please plan ahead if you desire extra lighting or power for your piece. Lighting must fit in your 2ft cube.
