You asked general, I answered general. The first negative question you encounter is a neat trick, the second is a "this is annoying", by this contest the negative question could've been "which of these 4 is not a geekdo domain?" I'd already chosen to just guess.

I have Celts vs Romans and gave my Little Brother the Orcs vs Elves version for his birthday last year. I am interested in where this series goes. It would be nice to see more variety and better art.

Best feature about this game? box size (obvious, I suppose, but seriously its tiny!)

I won't talk about the rest, but this one? Really? The negative question was which of the four listed ancient civilizations has not been used. You didn't need to look at any rules page or BGG page at all - the titles of the games have the civilizations right in them, which was right there on the contest page.

Downloading absolutely nothing was necessary.

I've found over the last 5 contests that answering A to all questions will only ever give you one correct answer.

I think I'll start on "B" and see if that gets me more.

BGG.Com It's the only site I visit where it's a bigger sin to call someone a jackass than it is to be a jackass.

If it is something I really want, I'll put effort in, otherwise take my chances an get another MB.

Also negative questions: which of these is not, mean that you have to ctrl-F all the other entries.

I really want more contests like the Invasion of Canada one, have me play through a turn (or two) and see how the rules interact. That alone has kept the MB being displayed since I got it.


Sorry this FREE giveaway brought so much unhappiness to your day. The last time I checked no one is forcing anyone to partake in them.

Not every game is everyone's cup o' tea. Sure the odds can suck sometime but hell they are better than any lottery. And if you win it's FREE GAMES MAN! Maybe it's just me but 5 minutes out of my day for a chance for FREE GAMES is 5 minutes well spent.

I already have Celts vs. Romans set, but would love to win the rest. This game really works as a portable war-themed game, with interesting tactical and strategical decisions for its size.

Not to mention this was the second easiest contest I have participated in to find the answers to. Well, except for that one answer. I still don't know how I got that one wrong.

A free MB, a tad bit of knowledge about a game, AND a chance to win a copy? I'm game. Plus, I actually did win one once.

Somebody asked a simple question about why one wouldn't get all the questions right. Why am I being picked on now?

I already own the first two editions of pocket battles and love them - they are quick, confrontational, and completely bloody.

I would love to win the third one and gift away the other two to a good friend!

great contest for a great light war game series.

The odds are that eventually I may win one of these contests. But now I have confirmed why I don't play the lottery.
