(1/23/08) Results Posted. See Comments Section below.

My Contribution to the Holiday Cheer!

Over 1000 participants signed up for this year's Secret Santa Event! And from early reports, it would seem that some folks are receiving more than one game from their Santa. This would suggest that somewhere between 1,500 - 2,000 games will be given out this year.

So, I decided it would be fun to hold a sweepstake based on the My Secret Santa Sent Me... geeklist.

Contest Closed. No further entries permitted.

(The extra contest is still open though - see the link below)

The Rules

your participation in this sweepstake is free
to enter, add a geeklist item to this list for the game you think will be most popular*
you must submit your entry no later than Monday December 3rd, 2007**(Edit 3)
only one entry per user

*i.e. the game that is reported to have been received the most number of times in this geeklist
**Any entry with a date of December 4th or later will be deleted


The Winners

On January 15th, 2008, I will take a snapshot of the games reported in the aforementioned geeklist, and announce the game that was received as a gift the most***. The tip jar for this geeklist will be split evenly amongst those users who correctly predicted the most popular game.

***In the event of a tie, all entries that match either game will win


An Extra Prize

As an additional prize, the winner with the earliest geeklist entry will also win a copy of Pick & Pack, signed by the designer (with free shipping).



My thanks to Aldie for helping me seed the tip jar with 100



An Extra Contest

So, you bundled your guess in with others, which means that you don't have a shot at the extra prize? Why don't you pop over to this contest and try your luck there too!




EDIT-1: to make it clear that a geeklist item is required (not just a comment on someone else's item) to be counted as a valid entry. Yes, I know there will be duplicate items - that's fine.

EDIT-2: Added 'Extra Contest' link

EDIT-3: Pulled the contest closing deadline in to Monday midnight; The reports of received and opened games are coming in thick and fast, so I want to close this down before the leader becomes too obvious.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

As most BGG users are from the US, I'm guessing this will be THE game for many this Xmas.

(even if it wins you won't get much gold),
so I'm going with Jambo.
