TOPIC: Who Will Win?

Who Will Win? 8 Years, 5 Months ago  
There can be only one!

Good luck to everyone, but best of luck to me. :)

I hope whoever gets the set keeps the cat in the bag, though. As much as I want to know, I don't want Jeff's big surprise spoiled.

I doubt I'll win -- I could only afford 1 lake set for now. :( I know I'll end up with more eventually, too, but wiht the river set and everything else, I couldn't afford to get it all at once.

On the other hand, if I do win -- I'm gonna be ob-NOCK!-xious. the extra "ck!" is for EXTRA obnoxious. :D

L

I thought someone had to order three of the sets to even get one entry.
Yes?

If yes, I am sorry L, but you will congratulating the winner along with me and all of the other sorry sops that could not afford to order three sets.

Come now RabidFox*, I read it the same way BlackHawk1 does, the mailer said
We have added an extra incentive for collectors to pre-order by May 31st (11:59pm Central) to thank our hardcore fans for digging deep and supporting us during this time when we are trying to make this 10th Anniversary summer something special to remember.


If you pre-order NOW (by the end of the month), for each "Cavernous Lake Set" you pre-order your name will be written on a slip of paper, and then it will be thrown in a hat. (So, if you pre-order 3 sets, you get 3 slips of paper in the hat.) On Thursday, June 1st one random slip of paper will be drawn from the hat, and the person whose name is on that slip of paper will be sent something "special" OVERNIGHT to arrive on Friday, June 2nd -- just in time for a weekend gaming session! (International customers will get it in 3-5 days).


And what is that something "special"? It will be one complete set of the Mystery Set to be released at Gen Con Indy! That's right...you will get one of the three proof sets in existence -- complete with its hand-carved styrofoam box. This means that you will receive your set TWO MONTHS before anyone else! The only hard part is that you have to swear on the "gamer's code" not to let the secret out until August 10th. Feel free to taunt away on the DF Forum, but you can't reveal any info about the set. If you do...you will have bad gamer karma forever and you will never make a critical saving throw again!


And yes, International customers are eligible, but please understand that it will take 3-5 days to arrive.

The news page says the same thing

(International customers will get it in 3-5 days).

The only extra thing you get for three sets is the open water bits.

In addition, if you pre-order THREE or more "Cavernous Lake Sets", you will receive a FREE "Cavernous Lake Open Water" 4 x 4 individual piece for every set you pre-order. So, if you pre-order 3 Cavernous Lake Sets you will receive 3 Open Water pieces...

I would say your chances are a little worse than crit-ing with a scythe -- if you have one ticket.

Well, I snuck in my pre-order of 2 Lake sets at 11:05 PM Central so I just made the cut-off for entries. Clearly I'm supposed to win. ;-}P~

Is it time yet? :) Couldn't we have drawn from the hat at 00:01:01? Okay, I know, you need a life, right? (that is, since you have one, you wouldn't be up at 00:01:01) Guess I do too, eh? It's just that I'm a night worker and I am up all night wondering "who is going to win?"

Are you going to post the winner's name here or will you hold your tongue and ship the product and let the winner (if they are a Forum user) make the announcement?

Here is looking forward to the annoucement. Good luck to all! (but I second Kraldo's sentiment "
Of course, if I don't win, I'll heartily contratulate the one that did... all the while muttering under my breath about the "lucky bastard." But dang it, let ME be the lucky bastard that others hate!"

62 sets and counting. In addition, a boatload of individual pieces or sets of pieces.

I thought about waiting until Friday night to post the name of the winner, but it is probably prudent to get a hold of them ahead of time so they know the package is coming. I don't want to send it to someone who is on vacation for the next two weeks.

So...expect an announcement here late Thursday afternoon. Good luck to everyone who entered.

We have a winner!

We will post the name this afternoon after we contact the person. Not to make you suffer any longer, I can tell you the winner is a female customer from Virginia, USA.

Sorry if you did not win -- but your pre-order will allow us to re-stock much faster and develop new sets much more quick. So...in a sense...we all won! More will be posted this afternoon.

Darn! For that I'd BE a girl from Virginia! Oh, well, congratulations to our Virginia girl, and may all of her other dreams come true, too.

And I was SO getting ready to gloat. Oh, well, maybe the NEXT time you guys run a contest I'll be the winner.

<Mope, mope, mope.>

Okay, enough of that. I signed my first group authorization today, so I can't feel too bad. And I'm still getting my Lake Sets, so what's to worry?

I will so be rolling on the floor laughing/crying if this turns out to be right...

Watch it go to someone who never posts on the boards, a grandmother buying for her grand kids birthday or some such and we never hear about it...
I can only think of one or two VA people (that we know of by the location tag) who post regularly or semi regularly...
