#GenCantContest – Prize Allocation

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!

(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!


Prize Packs

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.)


Thank you!!!


After much combing through #GenCantContest entries, below are The Committee’s selects for semi-finalists. From these submissions, the judges will pick THREE winners. Everyone who does not win Judges Choice will still be eligible for the raffle.

Thank you for such amazing creativity with images and words. These pictures made us laugh, “awww, ” and go “hmmm…” Our community is full of awesome – and hopefully you see that reflected below.

Pictures are posted in no particular or meaningful order.
