Interested in a copy of TI3? How about one of FFG's other releases such as War of the Ring or Doom?

I wanted to give BGG members and lurkers a heads up about a contest that will be starting Monday, February 7th.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS NOT RELATED, IN ANY WAY, SHAPE or FORM to FANTASY FLIGHT GAMES!

The purpose of the contest is two fold:

1) Help me find gamers to test a game I've designed.
2) Draw traffic to my site (which is a amateur project/study being done for a course). The content on the site is legit - but the traffic & load behavior to the site will be used for a small study.

Details of the contest will be laid out in a posting to the site on Monday morning (PST) but here are a couple of points:

1) No personal information will be used or sold. The study is about traffic patterns and not about harvesting content. You will NOT be spammed as a result of entering, I promise!

2) The contest will involve you finding some information out about the game and answering a very brief and very easy quiz. The whole thing shouldn't take more than 10 minutes (especially if you are quick with the FIND feature in your browser. Most likely you will be required to post them to a specific forum entry on the site (again - we are observing traffic and load issues - so we need people to post content to a forum).

3) The contest will run for 1 week. We will take all the entrants and randomly select the winner. I will then contact the winner and purchase/ship the game from an online vendor.


More specific information will be posted on the site on Monday (maybe I will have the details up a little sooner).

If you have any questions, you can email me at info@dimoninteractive.com

I'm assuming this playtest is for the Starquest! game pictured on the site?

Starquest! it is!
Glad to hear some folks are interested in both the contest and the game...

Now hopefully it lives up to my own expectations!

Yes - the game up for test is Starquest! That's a working title by the way... I'm not sold on it myself.

And no - there'll be no spam from the contest, I assure you. However, if you reallllllly want some spam (ketchup not included) I would be happy to forward you the 4000 some odd spam my system filters through daily (not my own account, but the mailserver our company sorts through).

Just for posterity's sake
robot I just wanted to inform YOU that I am the 'Guest' that provided the extensive listing of suggested 'Game Titles' on the site just a little while ago as it wouldn't ALLOW me to USE my 'registered' name for this! I made '3' of EACH for every Letter of the Alphabet, so in case anyone would like to check those out, then they are a NEW Topic there now.

I'd be willing to help! And a chance at winning TI3 or Doom makes the deal even sweeter!

Do I need to PM you as well?

UPDATES
Thanks for all the interest!

You can find out a bit more about the contest at http://dimoninteractive.com

The contest will start Monday the 7th, and the rules will be posted on my site then.

One of the questions on the contest entry is whether you would like to test the game. The tests are going to be limited (I can only make so many copies of the game) and testers will be required to sign a standard NDA.

Cheers!

TI3 really is an incredible game - if you like those sorts of games, I highly recommend it! I haven't played Doom yet myself, but I have played with the bits and read the rules - seems like a cracker! WoTR is also one of my all time faves - so I recommend that too! Of course, whoever wins gets to pick!

I wouldn't want to discriminate against my friendly neighbors to the east... so of course!

If you happen to live in Ireland, maybe I can hand deliver the prize... will be there in April to visit friends.

How many people are we talking here?


The more the merrier! (Or at least, the better the load test).
