Honestly, what's more exciting than coming home from a hard day's work to find that FEDEX package waiting on the doorstep?

You open the box, and unpack the new batch of games from your FOLGS. There's nothing like tearing off the shrink wrap, opening the box for the first time, and taking out all the components. Punching out the cardboard tokens, reading the rules, checking out the bits... it's better than, uh, well OK maybe not THAT good, but still pretty awesome.

Recently, I received just such a shipment. When the dust settled, I had a big pile of shrink wrap and a bunch of empty punch boards. Instead of throwing them out, though, I decided to use them for a contest.

And since I'm trying to get some exposure for my first self published game, I thought this would be a great opportunity to get some easy publicity.

So, check out these pictures of empty punch boards. See if you can guess what games I got. The first person to post the correct game for each entry will win a copy of Prism.


*Fine Print: You must post your answers in a comment to each game you are guessing by using the [GAMEID] tag- that will ensure there are no interpretation/spelling issues. Please limit your guesses to two tries per game.

Entrants may only win once; if the same person correctly guesses more than one game, they will win for their earliest post, and their other entries will be ignored.

I will be checking for winners daily, around 6:00pm PDT. I'll add each game to the list along with the winners as they occur. I will contact winners by PM to arrange shipment.

Members of the Columbia Basin Boardgame Society are not eligible. BGG Admins, and employees of Boards & Bits are also ineligible.

If you must have a hint, try looking at my list of owned games.

(And my apologies regarding the photo quality- I *REALLY* need a new digital camera...)

Here's the prize. Prism is my first self published game. It's a light, family card game that I think makes a great filler. Check out the Prism Website at www.littleeskimogames.com/Prism.aspx.

Haven't played this one yet, but can't wait! I even bought all the expansions, too!

Played this one at one of our recent CBBS Game Nights. Just loved it. Hoping to convince my wife and daughters to play.

An expansion (but for a different game than above). One of the last needed to complete my collection of this great game series.

My two daughters just love this game. They like to use their Barbie dolls as the players, with each of them controlling two dolls. I also enjoy this, but prefer to play with real players not dolls.

I've seen this being played in our game group, but haven't had a chance to play myself. Hoping to bring it to the table soon.

BONUS: This one I actually got on eBay- it's out of print, and not available from my FOLGS. But I just had to have it, and managed to find one at a reasonable price.
