Also, if you look really close, you'll see the stronghold logo on the planet.

No, seriously! Bottom half of the planet... logo is rotated 90-degrees counter-clockwise.

ROTFLMAO! Really, wow... Andrew Parks and I thought the joke was very unsubtle! It was supposed to be in your face.

Ok, now here is something that we posted WAY back in like November 2012 when we first brought out the game and the Buono Core World promo pack:

There are THREE Easter Eggs on this card:
1. The Stronghold Games logo (already found)
2. ???
3. ???

What are the other 2?

Let's play a game... 5gg will be awarded for finding each of the other two Easter Eggs! You must post your answers here. Andy or I will check back in each day to see if there is a winner...

ENJOY!!

Thanks,

There is one more... who can find the 3rd Easter Egg?

Clue 1: This is "Buono Core" World. It has to do with... me.

Do you mean the fact that the name and type of the card (Buono - Core) match your name (Buonocore)? That is indeed an Easter egg about the card, but it was mentioned by Tim in the first post of this thread, so if it is the one we are looking for, credit should go to him (and might be the reason why no one "caught it".

If the third Easter Egg is something else, then I'll shut up and keep searching.

Wow, I can't believe I never caught this! Shows how much I pay attention even after so many plays.

May there be other easter eggs in other particular Stronghold games? This could be its own contest every time a new Stronghold game is released

Nope! The card name itself is not an Easter Egg. There is one more Easter Egg *on* the card itself.

Clue 2: I really really enjoy one of these...

I kept seeing this and couldn't tell what it was, until you gave the clue!

It's a glass of beer!

I noticed this as well, but couldn't figure out what it was. Looked like a flat piece of metal to me, but a glass of beer seems more reasonable. Must be a Guinness

TA-DAH!! Yes, it is a "glass of beer", generically. 5ggs awarded!!

It is more precisely a PINT of beer, and even more so, a Pint of Dark Beer.

I've given Scott an honorable mention prize of 1gg for saying it's a dark beer, like Guinness... good call.

Hope you all enjoyed the 'mini-contest'! It was fun!

Hmmm... maybe I need to get some more Easter Eggs on some more of my games... or are they there already... ? [Muhahahaha!]
