I see lots of contests here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/1247285/boardgamegeek/spo... for upcoming games and was wondering if GMT is considering doing one for this game. It might be a good way to get some buzz going as well as the prospect for gamers to get free lewtz.

In the world of wargames, the bees don't get much busier or louder than this.

Yeah, I saw that. But why settle for 1527?

Scott,

Already hosted by me at CincyCon 2014 (March 21-23). Jay Volk and I who are playtesters for FITL are looking possibly into doing some COIN (including FITL) at Origins in Columbus, Ohio in June, and I'm considering whether to do some at GenCon in Indianapolis in August. Plus I plan to bring my FITL playtest set to my 40th Reunion at Carleton College (Northfield, MN) in mid-June as well.

Hi Scott. I don't know much about these contests. I take it that the publishers sponsor them. Do you know if GMT has ever done any of these?

Thanks for the idea.... vfr

All I know is that these contests appear on BGG promotions, you get a quiz of about five questions to answer about the game, correct answers equal an entry, and then they announce a winner. You learn quite a bit about a game this way, so its a good way to get it in people's heads.
