The 'Create an Encounter Contest' for Cutthroat Caverns drew to a close today - with overwhelming response! We had nearly 100 submissions - and believe us, there are some very cool entries. It is going to be very difficult to pick out 'the best of the best' but we're gonna have a blast playtesting them all.

Thanks to everyone who entered the contest! You rock! Stay tuned for the results - to be announced just as soon as we can give each Encounter its due and select a winner. The Prestige alone will be worth the wait. Talk to you soon! - Curt and Justin

I thought mailed entries had until March 7th? No worries for me, as I e-mailed mine in. Will winners be notified via e-mail prior to the 15th?...

Yes, mailed entries do have a bit more time (3/7) - but we've yet to receive one.

Winners will be notified by e-mail (if they submitted by e-mail) and/or regular mail (if we are unable to contact them through e-mail). We are hoping to do so by the 15th, but we do want to make sure that we evaluate each entry fairly by playtesting it. There is a chance that this process will take a bit longer, but we will certainly post updates on BGG, Gamingreport and our website if this is the case.

Thanks again to everyone who entered!
Best
Curt

Thanks Curt! Just trying to keep track of my chances, and enjoying the game along the way. I even managed to get my non-gamer coworkers playing regularly; great game!...

I'm waiting with bated breath for the results. What are the chances that one of my entries wins? About 1 in a million.

So, is it safe to assume at this point, that if we haven't heard anything, our encounters weren't selected? Has anyone heard back from Curt?

Also, Is anyone planning on sharing their (non-winning) encounters? I was thinking I might put the 3 encouters I entered here for everyone's amusment.

As far as I know they may still be playtesting and such. I e-mailed Curt last Friday and he said they were down to the top 7...

They are probably having trouble deciding which of my entries they should declare the winner. I hereby give permission to use them both and declare a tie. Heh!

PS That was a joke, not unbridled arrogance on my part. But wouldn't that be cool? (For me, at least.)

Hi all

Sorry to keep you hanging. We just did final playtesting last night - awesome by the way. I will be contacting people and doing a press release before the end of the weekend.

Sorry for the wait guys. It was a mighty big - mighty fun - task. And we wanted to give every entry its due.

Best
Curt

The really sad thing is, I'm still hoping I might receive an email since there hasn't been an update yet.
