OFFICIAL RULES
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN.

  1. ELIGIBILITY: Each contest posted and announced in detail by Core through its Discord channel ("Contest") is open only to individuals who are (a) eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of the Contest, (b) a registered user at Coregames.com, and (c) are the original creator who created the content. In the event of a dispute as to authorship, Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any entry or winner; Sponsor’s decisions are final. Employees, officers, directors, and agents of Sponsor, its affiliates, advertising, promotion, and fulfillment agencies, their immediate family members and persons living in their same household, are not eligible. Each Contest is subject to all applicable laws and regulations and is void where prohibited by law.

  2. SPONSOR: Each Contest is sponsored by Manticore Games, Inc., 1400 Fashion Island Boulevard, San Mateo, CA 94404 ("Sponsor").

  3. AGREEMENT TO RULES: By participating in a Contest, each participant warrants that they fully and unconditionally agree to and accept these Official Rules and Sponsor’s related Contest posting(s). Each participant further warrants that they will accept the decisions of Sponsor, which are final and binding. Winning a prize is contingent upon fulfilling all requirements set forth herein.

  4. HOW TO ENTER: Sponsor will post details on the date and time on which each Contest starts and ends (each a "Contest Period"). Content submitted after a Contest Period has ended will not be judged. Sponsor will provide details on how to enter each Contest (for example, post your Core created content in Discord with a specified hashtag) (each an “Entry”). With the exception of Sponsor materials which are included in an Entry, all content must be the entrant’s original design and creation, executed solely by the entrant. Your Entry must not be subject to the rights of any third parties, other than Sponsor. The content in your Entry may not be offensive or otherwise unsuitable for use, as determined in Sponsor’s sole discretion. Entrants must comply with all Contest rules (including these Official Rules), regulations, and policies. Entrants not complying with these requirements will be disqualified.

  5. DETERMINATION OF WINNER: Each Entry will be judged by Sponsor, and Sponsor’s decisions are final and binding in all respects. Sponsor will use the following criteria to determine a winning Entry: 0-25 points for creativity, 0-25 points for uniqueness, 0-25 points for innovation and 0-25 points for fun. In the unlikely event of a tie, Sponsor will re-evaluate and compare each tied Entry based on the above-listed criteria and determine a winner. The eligible individual who submitted the Entry receiving the most votes from the judges will be a potential winner (the “Winner”), subject to verification of eligibility by Sponsor.

  6. PRIZES: For each Contest, Sponsor will post a list of prizes and the approximate retail value for each prize. Prizes are not transferable or refundable and must be accepted as awarded. No cash or other substitution may be made, except by Sponsor, who reserves the right to substitute a prize (or component thereof) with another prize (or component thereof) of equal or greater value in the event that a prize is unavailable as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Taxes and all other expenses and costs not expressly listed above are the Winner’s responsibility.

  7. SPONSOR’S RIGHTS TO ENTRY: Except where prohibited, by participating in the Contest, participant grants Sponsor and its agents an irrevocable right and license in perpetuity to reproduce, publish, use, edit, adapt, and/or modify any of all of the content in an Entry that was created or contributed to by participant without approval, in whole or in part, in any way, in any and all media throughout the world, and to associate the Entry with participants’ name, likeness, and biographical information, without limitation and without compensation.

  8. GENERAL CONDITIONS: Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any person or Entry that Sponsor determines to be acting in violation of these Official Rules or in a disruptive manner. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

  9. RELEASE AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: By participating in a Contest, each participant agrees to release and hold harmless Sponsor, its affiliates, and its and their officers, directors, employees, shareholders, agents, successors, and assigns (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Contest or receipt or use of any prize, including but not limited to injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from participation in the Contest or receipt of any prize, even if any or all of the Released Parties have been advised of the possibility of such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, therefore such exclusions may not apply to you. Sponsor reserves the right to cancel, suspend and/or modify a Contest if any problem corrupts the administration, security, or operation of that Contest, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Participant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of participating in the Contest, and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees. Each participant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including but not limited to punitive, consequential, direct or indirect damages.

  10. DISPUTES: Except where prohibited, participant agrees that any and all disputes, claims, and causes of action arising out of or connected with, a Contest or any prize awarded shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and exclusively by the appropriate court located in the State of California. All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation, and enforceability of these Official Rules, participant’s rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of Sponsor in connection with the Contest, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of California, or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of California.

  11. CONTEST RESULTS: The Winner(s) for each Contest will be posted on Sponsor’s forums, Discord channel, and interactive stream at the conclusion of the Contest.
