** Note: This contest has ended.
Hello There!! GenCon is over, but there is still some fun to be had. Thanks to the efforts of Epic Slant Press, LLC as well as our numerous prize donors (listed below), we’ve put together a contest with 15 possible winners! As you can see below, the contest is open for entry as of now, running from 8/22/2016 through 11:59pm PST on 8/31/2016.
Stumped on a question? We highly recommend using the links below (and showing our wonderful prize donors some love.)
Important! You can participate as much or little as you like. There are a total of 14 possible entries per person, but you only need to do 1 thing to be eligible & each additional task will only increase your odds. Good luck!
Chances are, you would probably like to know how the contest works and (arguably, even more importantly) what the prizes are. So, let’s get to it then…
Once the contest has begun, you can either choose to log in with your Facebook Account or your Email and Name. Either method is just as valid as the other, no worries.
Next up, you’ll see a respectable list of ways you can gain entries into the contest. Fear not, you DO NOT HAVE TO ANSWER THEM ALL!! The idea here is that you can participate as much or as little as you want to. However, you will need to complete at least 1 task or question to be eligible to win; any extra effort you decide to put forth will be rewarded with more entries (up to 14 in total.)
Regarding the quiz questions, only correct answers will result in contest entries, so we highly recommend using the links below (and showing our wonderful prize donors some love) if you aren’t sure of the answers.
All Legal-aged citizens of their respective countries are eligible for our contest (unless prohibited by law), however, if you are located outside of the USA we will ask that you pay the shipping and taxes in order to get your prize safely to your doorstep (or where ever prizes would be delivered to.)
Ok, now the other important stuff… what might you receive!? In the section below, you’ll find the answer to that question as well as links to help you to find the answers to the Contest Quiz questions.
Havok & Hijinks Prize Pack
Epic Slant Press is the publisher of this blog as well as a small game called Havok & Hijinks. In this game, the players take on the roles of a bunch of baby dragons who are just starting to collect their hoards. After all, what kind of successful dragon doesn’t have a hoard to call their own, right? In this game, you’ll draw, steal, break, or trade your opponents’ treasures in order to become the first dragon with a hoard value of at least 15.
Our prize package includes: 1 copy of Havok & Hijinks, a “Crystal Dragon” Promo card, and a play mat featuring the little dragons.
On my last day at GenCon, when I mentioned my plans for our contest, the guys at Brotherwise Games were the first company to offer a full retail copy of a game. So, we are very happy to award 1 copy of Boss Monster: The Dungeon-Building Card Game to one of our lucky winners.
In most games, you play as the hero, attempting to make his or her way through a dangerous dungeon, avoiding traps, defeating the monsters, and eventually taking on the Boss… *yawn* but we’ve done that all before, right? So! In Boss Monster, you’ll play AS said Boss and have to build your dungeon, including all manner of traps and monsters to prevent heroes from reaching you. However, you’ll also need to make sure you have enough treasure to lure the adventurers into your lair as opposed to that of a rival Boss.
Exploding Kittens Special Edition Pack
The team over at Exploding Kittens LLC was kind enough to donate a limited 1st edition copy of their massive hit, Exploding Kittens as well as a “TFC” (or “Tiny Freaking Cards) deck, which was a prize for winners of their Giant Card game events.
Just before GenCon 2016 came to a close, the guys at iello games handed me a copy of Schotten Totten (a game they have updated and are now publishing), which will see a Pre-order street date of August 25th and should be widely available by Sept 8, 2016. In Schotten Totten, property lines are drawn and players attempt to edge their opponents out of their own properties to claim more for themselves.
Star Realms: Colony Wars
Star Realms, donated by White Wizard Games, is a fairly well-known space-themed deck building game in a very compact package. Star Realms: Colony Wars, expands on the fast-paced war of the original, also adding a new ability and new cards into the mix.
Grimtina’s Guard: a Tunnels & Trolls Solo Adventure
The folks over at MetaArcade and Flying Buffalo graciously handed me 5 copies of their Convention-exclusive solo adventure, Grimtina’s Guard, which have been autographed by the author. These 20-page booklets have you create a character (or use the included premade adventurers) and, with dice in hand, embark on a choose-your-own-adventure style quest.
Dice City & Trains 2013 GenCon Board
Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) supplied us with 3 sets of promo cards for their game, Dice City. Each of these sets comes with 5 cards to enhance your gameplay.
For another of their games, Trains, they have given us a 2013 GenCon Exclusive game board, featuring Indianapolis and the Convention Center location with a GenCon logo. These are out of print and not readily available, so we are very grateful to be able to include it as one of our prizes.
Munchkin Promo Pack
Steve Jackson Games has produced an amazing collection of promotional cards and bookmarks for their Munchkin series. While at the convention, their booth had 4 bookmarks and 4 promo cards available, so we’ve gone ahead and included them in our prizes as well. They always add a bit of variety and craziness to any game.
We certainly hope you have some fun with our little contest, make sure to enter for a chance to win one of our prizes, and please share this page with your friends so they can try their hand as well! Until next time, Good Luck!
