Our 100th Post Contest Results!

Hi Everyone.  We said we’d post contest result this Wednesday…so of course we are posting it Friday night!  It’s like Wednesday but two days lazier.

Anyway, on to the contest results.

Our grand prize winner with 19 correct answers is…  

Drum roll please...

Quint Wheeler!!!

Congratulations, Quint.  Quint has chosen to win a copy of Crappy Birthday.
The rest of our contestants were put into a drawing for our other two prizes and the lucky other winners are…
Dramatic Pause....
  Jim Jones and Zakkary Boisselle!   

Jim will be receiving the copy of Carnival and Zakkary will be receiving Eliminis.  Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to all of our contestants for participating.  We had fun reading your responses; we hope you had fun playing.

In case you wanted to check up on the full list and see what you missed, we have provided the answers in this post.  We were reasonably generous on accepting answers.  For example, even though technically it’s Settlers of Catan: Cities and Knights in the background, we pretty much gave credit for any mention of Settlers.  We were prepared to use the “more correct” answers as a tie breaker should the need arise, but it didn’t end up being an issue.  Anyway, without further ado, here are the answers:

1.       Agricola
2.       Labyrinth the Card Game
3.       Angry Birds: Knock On Wood
4.       Balancing Bears (We gave credit for Teddy Bear Bingo too because the pieces do look identical.
5.       Candy Land
6.       Connect 4
7.       Dominion: Seaside (We credited any mention of Dominion)
8.       Forbidden Island
9.       Lunch Money
10.   Magic the Gathering
11.   Mancala (The Glass half marbles.  We gave credit for people who said Bazaar as well)
12.   Memoir 44
13.   Memory
14.   Operation
15.   Parcheesi (Sorry folks, but those aren’t Sorry pieces.)
16.   Pathfinder RPG
17.   Pit
18.   Pokémon: The Trading Card Game
19.   Settlers of Catan: Cities and Knights (though we gave credit if you just said Settlers)
20.   Talisman
We also credited Dungeons & Dragons for the polyhedral dice (as it is the most predominant game those are used for) and Pictionary for the children’s art.  We didn’t really think of them as games that were in there, but we also didn’t really mean to have any “red herrings” either.  

Now for a bit of unfortunate news.  We have been saying that we were going to be at Just A Game Con in, Corvallis, Oregon this weekend and that will no longer be the case.  Due to some family matters that have come up (don’t worry, no one died) we will not be able to attend.  We may be looking to hold Story Realms event and playtesting opportunity at local shop or game store here in Eugene in the near future though, so we will keep you informed.

Thanks again to everyone for playing and for helping us celebrate 100 posts.  We look forward to bringing you at least 100 more!
