In the interest of getting prizes out sooner than later, prizes have been allocated to the winners who have contacted me. The list is below. As a reminder, prizes were allocated RANDOMLY only taking into account your physical location (US vs Int’l) per donors’ shipping requirements.
Also – as a special EXTRA bonus. Foxtrot Games is offering a free early Print-and-Play version of their upcoming “Lanterns: The Harvest Festival” to all winners. Links will be emailed.
I will be working today and tomorrow to (via email) ensure the donors know the name and address of their respective winner to fulfill their prize delivery.
Thank you again to EVERYONE who participated in the #GenCantContest. The donors, the entries, the community – it’s been phenomenal and once again proved that board gamers are the best.
(If you’d like to see how raffle winners were selected, I taped the drawing and you can view it here: http://youtu.be/zTSFj3bh-VE )
If you were a lucky winner, please send an email to GenCant2014@gmail.com with your name and mailing address.
If I do NOT receive an email from you by 8/25, a new winner will be drawn to replace your spot.
Please note: prizes for the prize packs are being sent from multiple locations, so arrival may vary.
Thank you again everyone!
After much deliberation, individual prizes have been grouped into Prize Packs. The Judge’s Choice packs were weighted a bit more heavily with the new games out of GenCon. The good news is: due to the generosity of our community, there are now 20 (yes, TWENTY.) raffle prize packs and one extra Honorable Mention. Not too shabby for an unplanned social media generated board gaming unconvention!
The prize packs are shown below. Winners will be announced Tuesday or Wednesday (sorry for the wait – I know many of you are eager to see if your lucky number is drawn.)
Marty from Rolling Dice & Taking Names has posted a video chronicling his journey home and his final thoughts on #GenCant2014.
Thank you to everyone who has submitted a photo for the #GenCantContest. They’ve ranged from images from the showroom floor to some truly unique cosplay. I hope everyone has enjoyed the conversation and humor of our UnConvention.
Due to the volume of prizes received, we will be grouping them into prize packs. At this time the plan is:
3 x Judges Choice. The Committee is reviewing all the submissions and we will vote up our top 3 favorites. Those GenCanters will each get a prize pack.
10 x Raffle. EVERYONE who submitted at least one photo to #GenCantContest will have ONE entry in the raffle. Twitter handles will be assigned a number and a random.org will be used to draw 10 winners. Prize packs will be allocated at random but location (i.e. US vs WW) will be taken into account.
We will work through this process as fast as possible, but please note – we will likely not announce winners until Tuesday (at the earliest) primarily due to your organizer’s schedule limitations. (Sorry!)
Feel free to contact me with any questions you have at GenCant2014@gmail.com

Hopefully soon we’ll have our own GenCant Guild on BGG!
A few ideas for games:
Skype – set up the game with a friend using Skype to communicate & webcams to share game boards/cards/dice rolles
Apps – connect on your tablet or phone using digital board games that allow you to connect with other gamers via the app
WWW – there are some great websites that let you game virtually with others. Try Board Game Arena or Yucata.de to start!
Vassal – it’s a thing. I don’t know how to use it. But it looks awesome!
Thanks again to our dear friend Jason (Talon Strikes Studios) for this amazing GenCantCats illustration! Don’t forget – a custom pencil sketch by Jason is one our prizes in the #GenCantContest! So get to tweeting your #GenCant2014 pictures!
Marty and Tony give a quick recap of Day 1 of our UnConvention!
Take a look and listen!
