'Shop Contest: Alex Trebek Edition

Illustration for article titled 'Shop Contest: Alex Trebek Edition

Sometimes you hear a bit of news that catches you off guard. I recently experienced this when I saw a short video of Alex Trebek, host of Jeopardy!, announcing he had stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I barely watch the show these days, but boy that news hit me hard. It fucking sucks. Cheer me up, Kotaku readers.


Your challenge this week: Put Alex Trebek into some video games, please.

I’m not really worried about which games, just make me laugh by placing the famous game show host into different video games.

Next week I’ll pick a winner and hand out some awards.

Please note that the image submissions rules have changed just a little bit. We’re looking for images that are 800 pixels wide now!

How To Submit — Instructions

1. Create your ‘Shop and save it to your desktop. Images must be at least 800 pixels wide.

2. Go to the bottom of this post

3. This brings up a comment window. Click “Choose file” if you’re uploading your ‘shop from your desktop

4. Alternatively, you can upload the ‘Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image’s URL into the field that says “Image URL.” Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

5. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn’t, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I will look at it.

6. Large-size images may not upload properly, though we have seen some animated .gifs upwards of 5 MB. If you’re still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels, or the whole thing under 2 MB.
