Today's the day we've been waiting for!

New Cards

One new deck today:

"Unbreakable" Puzzle

You may take two cards. :)


In honor of Unbreakable's release today, take the following items:

This event card, worth 2 points. (the first in a new series of BSB Event cards!)

An All Access Pass

(new members? Look here to see how you can redeem your tickets and passes.)

And last but not least, take one regular (1 point) card each that features AJ, Brian, Howie and Nick. They must all be from different decks.

Deck Masters
I've been terribly remiss in not noting those who have mastered a deck. If you have mastered a deck since we reopened on October 1st, please drop me a note via the contact form. Thanks!

The Forum is Back!

It took 3 1/2 hours, but would have taken longer if I hadn't saved files with the layout info. Of course, if I'd backed it up in the first place it would have been done three days ago, lol.
Anyway, it's backed up this time but there are some things I can't get back. I don't know which cards were left in the Complete-A-Card thread, or what the prizes were for the Raffle. I based it on my raffle at Delta Quad, but I changed the prizes for HA. *sigh* A new round will be called tomorrow night, or as soon as I can restructure the prizes.

Please go over and register again, and PLEASE make sure to read the rules? Your visible user name MUST be the same name you use here in the TCG. That goes for the name you use anywhere at Harmony Alley. I had one instance last week where I was trying to track down a member via the database, but had trouble finding them because a name used in a form wasn't their registered name.

Video News!
So, have you seen it?! The original version of "Drowning" has surfaced. No matter how cheezy everyone else seems to think it is, I love it. L-O-V-E! There will be a new deck featuring images from the vid. I already have 2 sets of screencaps, and will be rewarding both members for their efforts. (surprise! they didn't know about this, I snagged them at LJ. *g*)

I love it so much that you can all take four cards, containing the letters L-O-V-E in the name. All from different decks, please. :)

edit: Sorry for the confusion. I meant one letter in each card name. For example, the ones I chose were (L)lotharlange08, (O)youngnick03, (V)kevandkris03, (E)ninetieskevin03

Forums are down

I've no idea why, but I've posted to tech support at XMB Forums. They were great with helping me get it set up and they work quickly. I'll edit this post when I find out what's going on. Sorry!

10/26, 9:05am
EDIT: It appears that the database info has somehow been deleted. I will need to do a complete re-install of the forum (no, I didn't have a backup. Live and learn, right? *sigh*), and I will do my best to get it up and running over the weekend.

A Real Update!

This is more like it. No more whining about being tired, just some goodies to give away. :)

New Cards

Two new decks today:

Brian and Kevin
Early Days

Take one card from each deck.

Game Update

Free For All is now in Round 6 with a ton of cards! New rules this time around, and as always, a new round means that even if you just claimed you may now claim again.


In addition to making the two newest decks, HoL has made a new set of Level Badges based on the Unmistakable album photoshoot.


Welcome to the newest members over at the forum! We only need six more cards to complete our deck. Come take a look!

Our company is gone, the house is quiet again and I think I've caught up on my sleep. Sort of.


One new affiliate today: Welcome to Decades!

Game Updates

Bingo and Lottery have been updated.

A new round of Free For All will be posted in the next day or so.


If you're not making use of the Forum, you're missing out! We're trading, getting free cards for playing Complete the Deck, and our Forum Raffle, and just last night I posted our October Freebies. Come join the fun!

a quickie

I'm back, and I appreciate your patience. I hope there has been lots of trading going on in my absence! We've had out of town guests since last week (10/17) and I hope you all saw my note over in the forums (it was also on the scrolling marquee). If not, please take a moment to join and check in over there from time to time.

I'll be updating in the next day or two, but since I just got everyone off to the airport I'm basically non-functional for the rest of today. *g* Zzzzz.

Just terribly busy. Don't you just hate it when your real life interferes with your fun, online life? Pft. ;)


One new affiliate today: Welcome to Celestial!

Game Updates

Concert Games are updated, which means I think I've successfully managed one complete new round of all the games! I've added the dates of the updates with each level, so there will be no question as to whether or not you've missed a round. :)

Raffle numbers were posted incorrectly and then corrected, so check the Forum to see if you've won. The forum raffle is ongoing, so if you don't have a card yet simply apply here and you'll be eligible for the next round.

Free For All will be cleaned up this evening and claimed cards removed.

See you over at the forum!

One new affiliate today: Welcome to Beloved.

Card News

Two new decks today!

100 Hours Tour
Kevin and Kristin

Take three cards, but no more than two from one deck.

Member News

I hope you're all enjoying the forum and the raffle. In the coming weeks I'll be adding a few things here and there. I'll get all of the forum comments/replies updated tonight. As of now, all forms have been answered and I'm off to check the email. *g*

HOWIE DOIN'? (sorry, I couldn't resist *g*)

Game Updates

Interview Games are now in Round 6! Lottery & Bingo have also been updated, and I'll call the winning raffle numbers in the forum a little later. The raffle is ongoing, just like the lottery. Once you have a number it's good forever! I use a randomizer to call the numbers each week.

Card News

I've begun adding Master Badges. So far all of the AJ decks (in the first section) have master badges, as do two of the more recent video decks. I'll be adding a couple of new decks tomorrow, it's been a crazy busy weekend. I hate it when real life interferes with my fun. *g*

Member News

Forum activity has been wonderful! Thanks to all of you who are taking advantage of it to trade and share coding advice. :)

A reminder, Please make sure you have all of your cards up before submitting a "mastered" form. If I go to your site to confirm that you have indeed mastered, but you don't have the cards up and your log updated, then I can't send out your rewards.

Have fun with the games!

edit: The first round of raffle numbers have been posted in the forum. :)

Affiliate News

I've taken some time to remove the affiliates that have closed or whose links give me a "404 not found" error. There are several that have not updated in months, but I left those alone. After all, we came back, right? ;)

We have two new affiliates today:
Abstract and Handsome. I also submitted this site for listing at Keeping Active.

Card News

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be adding Master cards for each of the decks. I like them, so there must be others that like having them too. I'll be adding them a section at a time, beginning from the top of the card list and working my way down. Once I start posting them the link will be added to the Cards page.

HoL and I are working on catching up on the promised decks, and donation rewards will be sent out as the decks are posted.

Game News

Just a reminder, the only games that have been updated since we came back from hiatus are the Rehearal Games. If you already played the other rounds in late spring or over the summer, you should not play them again. I'm going to update another round soon, and then once everything is updated I'll get back onto a regular schedule like we had before.

Happy Birthday Kevin!

I wasn't going to update today because I nearly went blind being on the pc for two days straight, but then I realized that today was a special day. :)

Mr. Body Beautiful is 36 today.

Take the three cards below as well as the VIP pass. Also take one regular card of your choice that features Kevin.

Card changes: If you d/l Inconsolable 00 or 11 before last night, please go save them again. HoL helped me correct a couple of color issues with those two. Thanks! (this old dog is learning new tricks with PSP. *g*)

The Lottery and Bingo are a 'go' for this weekend, as is the Forum Raffle. Thanks to all who have uploaded new cards and let me know. I'll get caught up on the raffle cards this afternoon.

Remember, for the month of October I'm going to double the referral rewards for new members!

Happy Tuesday!

It's great to see you all getting into the swing of things again. :)

We have three more new card decks today! You may take a total of four cards from the three decks listed, but no more than two cards from any one deck.

I Still
Just Want you To Know

Don't forget to register at the new forum. Several forum activities are getting under way today, and trading in the wishlists started last night!

We are starting over again with the Lottery. Please take some time and submit a new card. Numbers will be called over the weekend if we have enough submissions.

Bingo is ready to go! I swapped out one each of the Boy's individual cards for new images. Download a blank card and images of your choice here, then fill out the form to let me know you're ready to play. If I have enough submissions, cards will be called Sunday evening along with the Lottery numbers.

Last but not least, spread the word! For the month of October I'm going to double the referral rewards for new members.

Get busy. :)

Welcome Back, you!

Welcome to the new home of Harmony Alley. Things are still comfy and familiar, so pull up a chair and let's get back to having fun! Take a minute to bookmark the new location, and also the new email address. Yes, I know it's missing a letter but Gmail wouldn't cooperate. *g*

On with the show!

We missed Howie's birthday during the hiatus, so take the three cards below as well as the VIP pass.

We have three new card decks to get us started, thanks HoL! You may take a total of four cards from the three decks listed, but no more than two cards from any one deck.

Black and Blue Puzzle

Speaking of HoL, I want to thank her publicly for not only allowing me to take over the reigns here at HA, but for the hours upon hours of time she has spent getting everything moved over to my server. She even made sure the links were all changed to reflect the move. She plans to remain on staff, handling layouts, graphics and some of the card decks. Applause, please!

I would be remiss if I didn't also say thank you to Sam and Aceetha, who were an integral part of the original concept and running of Harmony Alley. More applause, please!

Thanks also to Michelle for a new set of link buttons. :)

The new Forum is up and running for the most part, so please come on over and join. Please use the same name you use here at Harmony Alley. As we move forward, there will be activities that are only available there, and there is a place to post your wishlists. Hopefully it will make trading a lot easier.

Rehearsal Games (round 5) are ready to play!

We are starting over again with the Lottery. Please take some time and submit a new card. Numbers will be called over the weekend if we have enough submissions.

Bingo will be starting from scratch too, so watch for news about that.

I know I've missed a bunch of things, but I'm anxious to get things rolling again. Expect edits and more updates as I remember things.

Last but not least, please take the limited edition card below, worth 3 points.
