Popular Secret Santa Sweepstakes (2010)
- Simon Hunt(simonh)United States
Some Holiday Cheer!
The Secret Santa Event gets bigger every year! This year we have over 1700 participants. 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 3,000 - 4,000 games will be given out this year.
I thought it would be fun to hold a sweepstake this year, based on the results of The Most Popular Secret Santa Games (2010) geeklist.
** Winners Announced Below **

After the January 15th, 2011 update of the "Most Popular Secret Santa Games" geeklist, the entries matching the top three games in that list will share the geekgold pot for Win (1st), Place (2nd), and Show (3rd), dividing the pot 60%/30%/10% respectively.
The Prize Money will be 100 GG from me, plus the contents of the tip jar from this geeklist.
To try and make this clearer...
You will win some geekgold in this sweepstake if:
You added the geeklist-item (to this list) that matches one of the top three items as reported in the "Most Popular Secret Santa Games" geeklist on January 15th, or
You commented on the geeklist-item (in this list) that matches one of the top three items as reported in the "Most Popular Secret Santa Games" geeklist on January 15th
At the end of 1/15/2011, the most popular games recorded as BGG Secret Santa gifts were:
Tied for 1st Place 7 Wonders and Sid Meier's Civilization: The Board Game (gifted 38 times each),
3rd Place Small World gifted 31 times.
There was 12.58 in the tip jar, making a total pot of 112.58 for prize money:
60% = 67.55
30% = 33.77
10% = 11.26
101.32 split 23 ways (for those who guessed 7 Wonders or Civilization) comes to 4.40 each.
11.26 split 8 ways (for those who guessed Small World) comes to 1.41 each.
