Happy Blog-i-versary! Have some free stuff!!!

Last night, I totalled up the entries from my 3rd Blog-i-versary contest.  In all, there were 21 participants earning a total of 29 entries.  People identified anywhere from 5 up to all 50 of the images correctly (only Chris Ingersoll, a member of my game group, got all 50).  I organized all the entries into a spreadsheet and then randomly decided who would win.  Now, I could have used a random-number generator or pulled paper from a hat or something, but instead, I used the most maligned and generally useless of all dice, the 30-sider.  I actually had Gwen roll it in another room and call out the number to me, just to make sure that we wouldn’t intentionally or unintentionally show any favoritism to someone we knew.  The number we rolled was a 10, which corresponded to…

Andrew Tullsen!!!

Congratulations, Andrew!  You are the proud new owner of a $35 gift code for Game Surplus


Thanks for everyone who entered the contest, and especially to Game Surplus  for generously donating the prize support!  I asked them to help me out because they are one of my favorite online retailers, and I definitely encourage and recommend you all to check them out for your game-buying needs.

  1. Rob Cannon

    Great collage. Thanks for the fun contest!

  2. Bay

    That was fun… annoyed that I couldn’t place those purple cubes as the mutant strain in Pandemic!

  3. Chris Ingersoll

    It helps if you have actually played Chris’s copy, with the “mutant” blue cube.

  4. Chris Norwood

    That’s not a mutant cube…

    This is a mutant cube!
