Inked Gaming’s Supply Drop Coloring Competition

Ready…Set…DRAW! If you immediately reached for your coloring pens, you’re on the right track. You see, our trusty mascot, Kai, has bundled up for the winter and chosen an ugly sweater to keep them warm as the temperatures drop. There’s nothing like sporting an ugly sweater in the winter. We love ugly seaters, but we think this ugly sweater could look better, and that’s where you come in!

At first, we thought about taking Kai’s ugly sweater and giving it a sweet revamped design of our own using different patterns and vibrant colors. But, before we put pen to pad, we had an idea, “What if we ask our Supply drop subscribers to create a design for us and make a contest out of it”? Now that’s something we would like to see. After that, Kai's Ugly Sweater Coloring Contest was born!

All December long, we’ll be calling on our Supply Drop Subscribers to help us color Kai’s ugly sweater. We’ll do this by sending playmats featuring Kai in their ugly sweater to our subscribers and asking them to re-design Kai’s ugly sweater with some new colors, patterns, or whatever else they think will fit Kai best. Since all the coloring will be done on a playmat, we will also be including a set of alcohol-based permanent markers with each mat as well.

We’re asking for creativity, colorful personality, and a healthy dash of humor for this coloring contest. Whatever you come up with, just please be sure that it falls within the bounds of our terms and conditions.

The sweater doesn’t have to be ugly per se, but those are the elements that we, and our fellow gamers, would like to see in every design. Once the sweater is colored and Kai has a new look, our subscribers can take a picture of the mat and upload it to From there, we will take it as an entry for the contest, where it will await voting in January.

That’s actually a nice segue into the second part of the contest, which will call on the entire Inked Gaming community. After we’ve received all the entries from our subscribers, we will post eligible entries on our site and open voting for all of our followers. The voting will remain open throughout the month of January. Once voting has closed, and we’ve tallied all the numbers, we will announce the winner on February 1st, 2023.

There are several prizes up for grabs in this contest, which will be rewarded to the designs that place in the top 3 with the most votes. Those rewards are as follows:

  • 1st Place: $150 Inked Gaming Gift Card
  • 2nd Place: $100 Inked Gaming Gift Card
  • 3rd Place: $50 Inked Gaming Gift Card

  • Again, this contest is exclusively available only to our Supply Drop Subscribers receiving our December box. So, if you’re a subscriber and would like to participate, we’ll send you the Kai mat and marker set in your next supply drop while supplies last, starting with orders placed after December 1st. If you’re not subscribed to our Supply Drops, but would like to participate, there’s still time. Just head over to our Supply Drop Subscription page and sign up as soon as you can.
