Seems like there should be credit for contributing to the site in other ways, like linking videos of relevant games on their pages. 

philryuh 11 days ago | 1 point[-]

Will look into changing up the rules for the future ones!

Theegravedigger 10 days ago | 1 point[-]

Also the full rules link is broken in this one. 

Theegravedigger 10 days ago | 1 point[-]

It might also be worth looking at weighting some of the things differently. 

Marshwiggle92 9 days ago | 1 point[-]

Not a huge deal, but for the last several posts and comments I've left on the forum hasn't changed the count of "points" for the raffle. 

Anyone else having that problem? 

Theegravedigger 10 days ago | 1 point[-]

I really should import my collection so it becomes clear how hard my decision would be. My collection is kinda ridiculous. 

JamesReid860 12 days ago | 1 point[-]

(I doubt I can win twice in a row) but still, if I won I’d get Empires I’d the Void II... if it drops a few bucks by then!

philryuh 11 days ago | 1 point[-]

You never know haha, I don't think there's been a clear leader for the current round of giveaway. So it feels pretty close for everyone

JamesReid860 11 days ago | 1 point[-]

Challenge accepted ;-) 

philryuh 11 days ago | 1 point[-]

I can see that lol

Just make sure to send me the picture by tomorrow if you can! :)

JamesReid860 10 days ago | 1 point[-]

Oops! I'm on it!

corsa 12 days ago | 1 point[-]

Hmm, I would have to say either Brass: Birmingham or Wingspan.

philryuh 11 days ago | 1 point[-]

Wingspan has certainly been the most desired game throughout all of our giveaways :)

Fate 18 days ago | 1 point[-]

I like to win Wingspan because of its theme, artwork, and re playability. Thanks for the opportunity!

HooperGirl 18 days ago | 1 point[-]

So hard to pick just one!  Today...Stone Age!

xldh 20 days ago | 1 point[-]

I think that is a big IF... Nevertheless I can still dream. I have a dream of flying with the birds in Wingspan.

Marshwiggle92 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

When I win, I will choose either :

Wingspan

Star Trek: Frontiers, or

Spirit Island

Skippan 8 days ago | 1 point[-]

I have added a YT link review to a game. Shouldn't it count as entry?

philryuh 8 days ago | 1 point[-]

If you made a link post on the forum, it should have counted. If you were adding a link on the game page, it wouldn't have counted under the explicit rules.

But, I will be taking a look at expanding the types of contributions that will count toward the entry for the future giveaways. Great to have you here!

apertotes 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Is this available for Canadians as well?

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yes it is! And welcome to the forum :)

apertotes 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Thank you!

Skurvy5 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

I’m in! Love these contests. 

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

So which game are you looking out for now then? :)

Skurvy5 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

You guys keep telling me how great Viticulture is. Perhaps that. Perhaps Imperial Settlers and some IA villain packs. Perhaps something else entirely.  Just have to figure it out if my name comes up!

nealkfrank 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Felt like I put in a good effort last time! Hears to giving it another go!! Still enjoying the conversation even without the wins so still happy with my experience here!

BenjaminK 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Yeah, I don't think I'd still be here if the conversations weren't fun, even with the chances of winning. Let's be honest--I'm too lazy for that haha

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

I'm glad you're enjoying it! I certainly have been in the past weeks too

Skurvy5 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

The contest sparked our attention but now we are here for the discussions. Plus it’s been fun watching BGA grow. 

sdirrane 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Since Brian already got his IA filled out I’m thinking it’s time for another Championship for myself. Ha

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Got for it! I feel like it's about time for an upset though, where a top contributor doesn't win. Or maybe a repeat win.

sdirrane 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Cinderella Story?

BenjaminK 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

*cracks knuckles* Here we go!

Skurvy5 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

It’s alright Ben and Scott. I got this one. 

threadlock 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Thanks for doing this.  It's really generous of you guys.

BTW, the rules link is missing.

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Will see where it went haha. And you're welcome! Hope to keep it going for as long as possible

theDL 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

As with last time, I'm looking forward to eventually getting Everdell!

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Ahh, good choice. Haven't played it myself but heard mostly good things!

BenjaminK 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

I'm starting to lean toward Imperial Assault. Don't ask me why, since it's NEVER been talked about here...

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Lol I wish I could give away a signed copy of it some day, or maybe an artwork

Skurvy5 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

It’s criminally under represented on this forum. 

sdirrane 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Haha!

Skyw3rd 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Ok, I know I said that the last three times were my time, but this one, this is my time.

One more thing, the My Entries portion of the side bar has said 12 ever since you started showing that

BenjaminK 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Mine entry count is lower than the reported 186. Mine actually shows I have 176, so I wonder if it was swapped with Neal's. Hopefully it's just a bug and you're still getting those entries!

nealkfrank 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Conspiracy!! My counter had me right around 176 though so I’m not too concerned. 

philryuh 23 days ago | 1 point[-]

Lol I'll ask Trent if everything's correct
