Board to Pieces: A Competition for GG (hopefully)
ZürichMy ass is green, but I don't let it worry me.
New competition is now available: Haiku Hiatus
Howdy, ladies and gentlebeans, long time lurker, first time GeekLister. I've been running some competitions at my place of work recently and it seemes only fair to share them with you, the community who inspired such competitions. Now I know that "That_Quiz_Guy" has been running similar competitions, but I haven't seen anything new from him for a while, so, at the risk of stepping on some toes, I'm going to give this a try. This competition will be the first of a two part "fundraiser" to help me gather which can be given out as prizes for these competitions (I actually give out free games where I work). If this falls flat, then so be it. Otherwise, as I post each monthly competition where I work, I will also post it here for all to enjoy - my way of giving something back to a community which has given me so much.
So without further ado, I give you "Board to Piece: A Competition for "
-Below are 15 images of cropped game boards. However, the cropping is done in (roughly) the shape of a piece from another boardgame. For each image the players must try to identify:
--The game which the board is from.
--The game which has a piece or pieces with the same shape as the cropping.
-Each player can, at any time, send a GeekMail with the subject line "Board to Pieces" which contains their guesses.
--Players may only submit once. In the case of multiple submissions, only the earliest will be counted.
-Two prizes will be awarded:
-- The first will go to the person who got the most correct answers. (In the likely event of a tie, that person will be chosen at random from amongst those with the highest score)
-- The second prize will go to one person, chosen at random, who submitted at least one correct answer.
--The exact nature of the prize will depend on how much is available
-The competition will clost on Thursday 16th Oct at midnight PST. Enjoy!
Any tips donated to this GeekList will be spilt 50:50 between the prize fund for this GeekList and a prize fund used for other, similar competitions in the future (approx 1 per month). So, please give generously.
Oh, and here's a handy hint which might help you out (obfuscated for the truly hardcore):Spoiler (click to reveal)There is some relationship between the board in each image and its shape - finding that may make things easier.
