To celebrate the release of my new self-published game Cannonball Colony, I thought it would be fun to have a contest!

But first, here is the blurb for the game:
Settle a deserted island and cannonball your rivals!
It is the golden age of colonialism and a beautiful deserted island has just been discovered. Unfortunately, ships from different countries have arrived at the same time to claim it! You take the role of one of these countries in the fight for supremacy on the island. Build a strategic network of roads and forts to extend your influence. Set up cannons in the right positions to blow away your opponents. The player with the most forts standing at the end of the game wins the island for his country!


The winner will receive a copy of Cannonball Colony, with free shipping to anywhere in the world.

The runner-up will receive one of the last few copies of Archaeology: The Card Game, my game from last year, again with shipping.

All you need to do is GeekMail me with your answers to the following questions. Each correct answer will get you one entry into the contest.

I will let the contest run for a week, until Tuesday, July 15 at 9pm AEST (this is Tuesday morning in the USA).

I will draw the winners at random and let you know!

Thanks for reading and have fun!
