Congrats to the winners, who will receive an email or geekmail from Stronghold Games to claim their winnings soon. A big thanks to Stronghold Games for sponsoring the contest and also to all 5,127 of you who participated!

Stronghold also wanted to share the correct answers for those who are curious:

According to the BGG description and rules for the game, what triggers the end of the game in Terraforming Mars?
Raising the temperature, oxygen, and ocean coverage to habitable levels

Which is the larger number: (a) The year in the future that Terraforming Mars is set or (b) the current year plus the number of Resource cubes, Science Project cards, or board tiles in the game?
The current year plus the number of cubes, cards, and tiles is the larger number.

Designer Jacob Fryxelius posted this image in the Terraforming Mars gallery on BGG. It features illustrations by Jonathan Fryxelius, Isaac Fryxelius, and Daniel Fryxlelius. What do these cards, this forum thread on BGG, and this file on BGG all address?
Cosmic radiation

The Dragon & Flagon is a tavern brawl that takes place in a 3D environment. This image shows the wooden components that are used in The Dragon & Flagon. The charming wooden components used in the game are:
Mug, Barrel, Chair, Time Marker

Which of the following details is not true about The Dragon & Flagon:
The game was designed by Brain, Geoff, and Sydney Engelstien.

This demonstration video from the Origins Game Fair with Brian and Sydney Engelstein and Stephen Buonocore reveals at 8 minutes and 30 seconds that:
Stephen Buonocore favored swinging from chandeliers and kicking people in the head during playtesting.

Thanks so much for sharing the answers with everyone for us, Chad. That's much appreciated.

As the designer of this contest for Stephen Buonocore and Stronghold Games, I saw comments that question #5 had all right answers. In fact, there were these two deliberate mispellings ("Brain" for Brian, and "Engelstien" for Engelstein). I was even careful to offer the correct spellings again in the text of the next question, question #6...

Quote:
6. This demonstration video from the Origins Game Fair with Brian and Sydney Engelstein and Stephen Buonocore reveals at 8 minutes and 30 seconds that:

While the Englesteins are famously all very intelligent, they did not name their son Brain. His name is Brian.

I also wanted to let you know that we appreciate your enthusiasm for these two titles and read all your comments. And I wouldn't be a true supporter and student of Mr Buonocore without reminding everyone that the preorders for these two titles are available at the Stronghold Games website until this Wednesday. This will get you the games at 30% and before they go to retail. The retail street date for The Dragon & Flagon is August 31 and for Terraforming Mars the street date is September 14th at select stores and Sept 28th for worldwide availability.

Thank you. I assure you that it is very nice to read the gratitude and goodwill participants offer each other and the publishers involved. It makes doing the contests even more rewarding. We look forward to doing another very soon. And since you've taken the time to read the comments, I will just say I enjoy making tricky questions where a misspelling gives away the answer. (I've said too much)
