Congrats to the winners, who will receive an email or geekmail from Stronghold in a bit. A big thanks to Stronghold Games for the contest and also to all 5,015 of you that participated!

Also, since people seemed to have a bit of a tough time with this contest, here are the answers:

Quote:

1. During a 4-player game of Core Worlds, which player receives two Energy Surge Tokens at the start of the game? Assume that the player who starts the game with the Destiny Marker is "Player 1.
a. Player 1
b. Player 2
c. Player 3
d. Player 4
e. No player receives Energy Surge Tokens

2. According to Board Game Geek’s classification, which of these mechanics has not been used in a game published by Stronghold Games?
a. Auction/Bidding
b. Memory
c. Tile Placement
d. Variable Phase Order
e. Voting

3. Which of the following is not one of the six "Core Worlds"?
a. Anu
b. Odin
c. Quetzalcoatl
d. Ra
e. Zeus

4. Which game published by Stronghold Games includes an expansion, and who is the designer(s) of the expansion?
a. Core Worlds, expansion by Andrew Parks
b. Lost Temple, expansion by Jonny De Vries
c. Outpost, expansion by Tom Lehmann
d. Panic Station, expansion by David Ausloos
e. Survive: Escape From Atlantis!, expansion by Stephen M. Buonocore and Kevin Nesbitt

5. There is a secret code hidden on the Stronghold Games website. What is that code?
a. Android
b. Atlantean
c. Briefcase
d. Galaxy
e. Speculation

6. What series of books was the greatest source of inspiration for the theme of Core Worlds?
a. Battlefield Earth, by L. Ron Hubbard
b. Foundation, by Isaac Asimov
c. John Carter of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs
d. The Psychotechnic League, by Poul Anderson
e. Star Wars, by George Lucas


The biggest stumbling block seemed to be Q4. The key word there was INCLUDES. Many of the answers were real expansions, but only the Outpost expansion is included with the game, whereas the others must be bought separately. However, since Stronghold Games is much nicer than I would have been, they decided to give everyone credit for that question, especially since the wording may not have been apparent to non-native English speakers.

That will teach me to procrastinate. It's a nice Sunday evening and I finally get a chance to sit down and work on this contest which is over at the end of the day on Sunday. I figure out all 6 answers, hit Submit, and am told "This contest is ended." (Or words to that effect.)

I look at the main page of BGG, and the winners are already announced.

Shoot.

Not only does Core Worlds look good, but I played Outpost for the first time yesterday and really enjoyed it. First prize was looking mighty good.

Oh well. To add insult to injury, I see that I got all 6 right.

Next contest maybe I'll break my perfect BGG losing streak.

Oh right: congratulations, everyone!

The good news is you can place an order for the games at most game stores to fill that space you've cleared!

Nice to have the answers given after the fact, thanks.

Do we get to find out how or where we were supposed to have been able to locate this code?

I went to the product page for the game on Stronghold's website and, despite repeated refreshes, only saw this:
Quote:
*** Incoming Transmission ***
Galactic Emperor: Your secret code is…
*** Transmission Failed — Trying to reestablish ***

I eventually gave up, thinking it was either broken or, more likely, a red herring.

Congrats to all the winners! No griping from me about not winning... only about not being able to find the code and having to guess. devil

Congratulations to the winners! ENJOY - this game looks really good.

I had a fortune cookie this morning (Chinese New Year) from a lad in my tutor group. It said "Luck will be on your side this week" So far Lady Luck gets a big thumbsdown My record is now d10-0 / d10-2d10-3 but I'm just biding my time.

I don't want happiness by halves, nor is half of sorrow what I want. Yet there's a pillow I would share, where gently pressed against a cheek like a helpless star, a falling star, a ring glimmers on the finger of a hand.

Well done guys.

It is found here: http://strongholdgames.com/store/available-for-preorder-now-...

Specifically:
[BTW, as the CEO of the corporation, make sure you know that your cipher is "Speculation". We're just saying...]

Note: This is below the incoming transmission message by about a paragraph.

meh :/

I think it's rather a case of people finding one expansion which matches (like I seemed to do with Survive!) and then going with that instead of comparing them all to see what really is included (which I did with Outpost.)
