Create Your Dream Island runner-up #4

We've announced the grand-prize winner of the Create Your Dream Island contest. To read about the winning entry, Arabian Nights Island, click here.

We're also featuring the 10 runners-up, in alphabetical order. Today's runner-up is:

House of Cards Island, submitted by Joel B. of Ohio!

The pitch: In Card Kingdom, the Ace of Hearts has been stolen from the Heart Kingdom. The King and Queen of Hearts need your help to find it before there is a war.

Why we liked it: Joel's vision of the "Card Kingdom" sounded like an incredibly fun place for us to design. He sent an additional sheet with several characters, as well as descriptions of the traits of each card suit. It was some impressive world building!

We asked Joel, whose avatar name is Giant Foot, a few questions. Here are his answers!
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Joel: My sister and I were jumping on the trampoline after the contest was announced, thinking up ideas for islands and House Of Cards was my favorite out of all of them.
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Joel: I ran around the house screaming. It was awesome.
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Joel: About 5 years.
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Joel: That's a hard choice, but I have to go with Cryptids Island. 
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Joel: 1) A teleporter. 2) A lifetime supply of bacon. 3) Duct tape. 
Maybe a deck of playing cards to pass the time... Thanks for your entry, Joel!
