Since I didn't know what it was, and in case others don't, here is a youtube video:

What makes it distinct is that cracker strip that apparently is designed to give so one person ends up with the gift and one person ends up with a little bit of wrapping paper.

 

Good luck everyone!

Really? All the ones I've done seen/done are designed so winner takes all (which normally is a rubbish gift, terribad jokes and a paper hat.

it still leaves room for digital, so what is it WG? Because I would like to start working on it right now so that it is somewhat good quality.

  Since it says in the rules : "Include your Gamertag somewhere in both of your pictures, handwritten on a piece of paper." I don't think it can be a digital one. :|

problem is most US player have no clue what a Christmas Cracker or ever seen one unless they were watching MR Beans Xmas or old British TV. [only reason I know]

 

For the US folks, ya know those stupid popper things they have in the grocery store on new years? Pull the string to hear a pop n steamers come out. Same sort of deal cept there is candy or toy inside. Pull both ends, it pops n rips apart at same time.

 

which also in lies a problem, explosives are involved in the making of a cracker. Someone loses a finger with out explicit instruction from WG on the proper use or building of such things. Gonna be more then free gold given out.

But...what's in there?

  • Some Gold
  • Some caramels for something sweet (sugar free though).
  • A 16GB USB stick in case you have a 4GB Xbox.
  • Finally something so that no one can jinx you. ;)

Actually it has the Vergina Sun (Star of Vergina) but because Greece is in permanent dispute with F.Y.R.O.M. about Alexander the Great (Greeks say he was Greek, these guys say that since he was Macedonian he was from F.Y.R.O.M., but Macedonia is an area in Northern Greece) I avoided showing the symbol because of the  political issues.

Ah, I have a similar piece that I got in Venice of some religious stuff I wouldn't discus on the forums as well. But, your entry is quite nice, I wish you the best of luck in this competition. (the flash drive was great, I never thought of that)

If I dress up as a tank, could I be considered a "tank-themed cracker" ... ?

 

:hiding:

 

I'll definitely have to work on this, as it doesn't require me to use Photoshop. :)
