I really liked this contest a lot; a introduction of a game should be not only about knowing the rules, but playing (at least partially) the game and have fun with it. Now I am highly motivated to buy the game, therefore the contest really did a great job.
It was even the best contest I ever entered, and I'm looking forward to other contests with similar approach.

13/15 - 5 entries.

Made one wrong move by not fully understanding the turn order mechanism.

Very cool contest. I loved that the questions were based on a sample play-through.

4/5 for me.

4/5. Very nice contest, game system looks like I could convince a few non-wargamers to get in on this. Love the American history theme too. Still say the all or nothing into Canada was the best choice, but I can live with the missed points.

Academy Games makes the best contests. It turns this whole thing into something I would just guess on to win and probably trade to actually wanting to win and play it! Looks fun!

12/15 - 4 entries. Doesn't get into the details of terrible winter of 1813, where both sides deliberately attacked civilian populations, but a lovely game indeed. Onto the Must Buy list it goes.

I think I'm at 0-9. I one day hope to reach your lofty depths err heights!

This game looks like a lot of fun though. I'll be keeping an eye out for some reviews.

Well, rats, 3 out of 5.
Guess if I win I can read the hard copy of the rules. :)

Just picked up 2 de Mayo, cheap, a quick pretty good game. First of this type of game I have purchased. This one looks interesting too.

I wonder if they can be convinced to send the winners one of the embroidered shirts they are going to send with the Pre-orders.

A cube game that I didn't hate
Games are all about choices and these choose-your-own-adventure (tm) type quizes are the best. Would play again--if the system would let me (-_-)
