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.)
The internet has rallied and we’re going to run a quick and fun contest for us GenCanters. Let’s keep it light, fun, and friendly.

If you’re looking for examples of photos, check out the #GenCant2014 hashtag – there’s a lot of fun ones in the spirit of the contest.
Prizes will be random. Some prizes may be collected into a prize bundle 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! We are still gathering the prize list which will be posted separately. If you’d like to donate to the prize pool, please email GenCant2014@gmail.com
Thanks to everyone for their enthusiasm, humor, and community spirit. Here’s to GenCant!
