At some time in the future, when I'm a successful game designer and independently wealthy, I'll organise a give-away of some great games, for everyone who is not living in the US of A. Just to reset karma in this regard

thumbsdown

EDIT:

Troll in the Corner


Spending own money to please geeks on the web upset over a stupid contest.


My favorite is when here in canada we discriminate over people in quebec on contests (but i think it is something in their laws that cause this)

Hey,

Ben here from Troll in the Corner. So far I've gotten over 75 entries into the contest from US folks. If I hit 125 entries by the end of the day today (midnight, EST), I'll buy a copy of Bridge Troll myself and hold another contest open only to folks living OUTSIDE the US.

Of course, the shipping won't be overnight, but it will travel at the speed of the US Postal Office's Media Mail.

How does that sound? If that happens, I'll comment on it here and also launch the contest here for BGG readers only, since a good amount of hits are coming from you folks.

Edit: Those 75 entries have all come in less than 3 hours after the contest was launched. And actually, we just passed 80.

-Ben

Thanks!

While we're a bit used to missing out, it still is a bit of a let-down to read the fine print and find out we're not eligible.

So kind of you to do this- while my post wasn't intended as a criticism as much as a 'heads-up', it makes my heart glad to see how quickly you've done what you can to include the rest of us!

At heart I'm just a game loving geek myself.

Looks like all you non-US folks are going to get your contest!

Good show! It's appreciated.


Not as if I ever win anything at BBG competitions anyway ...

Thank you very much! I know I appreciate what you've done to include non-US residents.

I'm glad to just be part of the contest. I wish every one of you the best of luck.

But not TOO much luck....devil

Edit: This may be too forward, but do we enter the contest the same way as US participants did?

For all you people that never win, I already own the game, so I will not put my name in.

Everyone should get this game anyway. It is my favorite cardgame ever (I like it more then Dominion).

I'll start a separate thread here on BGG to do the international contest. It will probably involve something really complicated, like sending me your email address or writing a 140 word dissertation on why you'd like a copy of the game.

By the way, we at TC have hit the 220 mark as far as entrants into the US contest. So the international contest is certainly going to happen!

I'll also let you know in this thread when I start the other thread. Or is that getting to complicated?

And a big huge thanks to all who've visited my site! It's much appreciated. Any suggestions or whatnot, message me!

Kudos and thumbs up for letting people outside US have some joy

We already suffer too much with customs, four time the game cost shipments and other stuff \o

It's on!

I just bought the game today so I won't even have it in my hands until next week at some point. Hopefully before the contest ends. You should expect shipping to take a week or three as well.

Can we have a contest for Canadians only so I can have a better chance of winning something?
