Thanks to some fabulous friends – we have an amazing (and growing) list of prizes for #GenCant2014.
This list will be updated as new things roll in.
RAFFLE Prizes will be allocated randomly. Judges Choice prize pack will be a higher value selection at the organizers’ discretion. Some prizes may be collected into a prize bundle, depending on logistics and other factors, at the organizers’ discretion. Some will be available to the US only and some will be available Internationally. Prize items will be annotated to indicate if they’re US only or Int’l. If a prize item does not indicate Int’l Available then assume it is US only!

Prize: SchWag – Prototype
It has come to our attention that our most recent experiment recreating Schrödinger’s Cats has become somewhat of a sport. Researchers are wagering their hard earned cash on the state of the cats inside boxes. We at Stellaris Robotics would like to encourage this sort of behavior in the name of SCIENCE!
That said we would like to regulate these games with the following rules:
- Players may only bet on which cats they believe are awake
- The winner of a wager on a particular cat will be the one who bet the most $
- Players who accurate bet the most on an awake cat gain the respect of their peers in the form of SCIENCE! tokens.
- The first to accumulate 5 SCIENCE! wins!!
Other than these rules we trust players will regulate their own activities. We understand some players have been cheating, peeking into boxes and tranquilizing cats. This is acceptable and encouraged. Game on! (US Only)
