Quest Machine and its parent company Songbird Productions along with BoardGameGeek are proud to announce the "Heroes Incorporated Giveaway Contest"

There are 6 multiple choice questions, and each correct answer gives you an entry into a drawing for one of 10 copies of the Heroes Incorporated board game.

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/contest/heroes/

Entries must be made before 12 Midnight, November 5, 2006. You must be a registered BoardGameGeek member to play and a resident of the United States. Winners will be announced on BoardGameGeek.com on Monday, November 6.

Update: If you entered the contest - within the past 15 minutes (before 5:00pm CDT), then enter again! Sorry about the problem.

Update #2: How could I forget the microbadge! There will be a microbadge that goes along with this contest - awarded at contest end.

Nuts, I must have clicked on the wrong answer for the last one. I knew the right answer, but got it wrong (didn't tell me which option I chose).

It's not letting me put an answer to both #5 and #6 (when #6 is answered, the #5 answer disappears and vice versa). This may be the previous poster's problem.

Edit: problem fixed!

Looks like I messed something up with a cut & paste. Try again if you just entered in the past 15 minutes.

A respectful question, not meant to discourage such events in the future, nor one voiced out of jealousy (well, perhaps a little ): what is the reason these quizzes are restricted to people living in the US? Is there a legal reason for it? Or a practical one?

It's up to the sponsor. Sometimes the cost/hassle of international shipping is too great to incur.

Worked fine for me -- I got four right, in spite of completely blind guessing

Not too bad. quick scan of the rules and I got all 6 right. Though the 3rd question was a bit tricky I thought. Educated guess

CRIME FIGHTING DOES PAY (especially when free games are involved!)

As you now all can see, Songbird (that's me) has acquired the Quest Machine label, including the complete inventory and publishing rights to the Heroes Incorporated board game. This does not include any rights to unpublished QM games, just Heroes Inc and its previously unpublished expansion S.U.P.E.R.

I would love to hear some feedback from owners of the game - what you like, what could be improved, and so on. I'm running this contest and ad campaign on BGG in hopes of generating some renewed interest in the game, because I have ideas for one expansion and possibly another. I personally have played many games of Heroes Inc with friends or with my son, and I think this is an excellent "light" game with some tongue-in-cheek super hero competition to boot.

I already have a few things which will hopefully spark something for both new and existing fans:

* S.U.P.E.R. expansion is now available for purchase exclusively at QM/Songbird
* Active BGG presence where I can address rules questions and update the official FAQ (and believe me, I will consult with the original designers, too!)
* Offering the Heroes Inc game for only $22.95 direct from Songbird during the 2-week BGG contest
* Updates to the QM website
* Commitment to produce at least one more expansion featuring new heroes, new villains, and new actions

So, everybody enjoy the contest, and I look forward to reading feedback on the game in this thread, on the HI and S.U.P.E.R. BGG pages, and via PM/email. Happy gaming!

EDIT: You can find the PDF of the rules on the lefthand side of the main page of http://questmachine.com . The rules contain all the answers to the trivia questions.

Can us non u.s. residents enter to get the microbadge?

I have to be honest, this whole u.s. only thing is really starting to give me the runs, especially when there are microbadges on the line.

BTW, to any USA resident who orders Heroes Inc from Songbird during the contest, and then subsequently wins the contest: I will either refund your original purchase or send you a 2nd game. It's up to you. So don't be bashful, order while it's cheap!

My family has a cottage in the U.S. that you can ship to. How do I make sure you don't filter me out because I'm Canadian?

Heh I guess it was bound to happen one day if I kept doing these - by guessing the answers I actually got all of them correct. Of course, I still won't ever win a competition, but at least I feel lucky

But if you filter on countries... won't that exclude people who currently live out of the US but have a US address to ship the game to? That's the situation in my case anyway.

I was going to read the rules to get the questions right, then I figured, why try to get the right is I can't win a copy for living in the wrong country? Random guessing ensued, five out of six right, hurrah!
