The current giveaway ends tomorrow night!

Ever since we relaunched our $60 board game giveaways, the winner was consistently one of the top 3 contributors (there may have been one instance when it was one of the top 5). Do you see an upset coming?

Being that I have 5 entries in this one since starting my new job and everytime I've said I was going to win I actually lost. I'm going to say that there will be no upset here.

Welcome back! I was wondering where you went. How’s the new job?

It's going well, I'm just super busy now during the day when before I was bored to tears. It's one thing to monitor and read the forums, but participation is more difficult.

I vote for you as the upset.

Not likely since there are crazy high numbers participation. 

I'm assuming there are not limits to winning, like "You can't win if you've won in the past six months," or that type of thing that contests usually have?

I'd love to see a big upset just to get a good laugh for myself xD

A repeat win hasn't happened yet, but if it ever reaches a point where the majority aren't ever winning the prize (or one person is always winning), then we'll likely revise the rules a bit in the future

It would be nice, but seems unlikely to me.

If there is an upset I would love if it would be a person with five or fewer entries. I think an upset would be cool, but, I figure numbers will probably win out in the end.

BTW, I was confused. I had in mind that the contest ended last night. I kept on checking to see who won, I just saw that it ends tonight.

I thought it ended a day or two ago as well. haha I wonder where we got such faulty information?   ;)

Supporter12 months ago

Hmmm there's no way that someone's going around messaging everyone the faulty info rightt? lol

It's not me I swear. Not yet, anyway. (Everyone, if you get a message in your inbox tonight or tomorrow--probs tomorrow--it's either from Phil saying you won a game, or me pretending to be Phil and giving out false hope.)

Supporter12 months ago

I just had it in mind wrong.

Me too, apparently haha

No, I don’t think that an upset is coming. It’s just not statistically likely. 

Supporter12 months ago

Yes, and in the words of JT, “it’s gonna be May”

Being a numbers guy, I must say no, there will not (assuming the random number generator being used is fair)

I believe that when @jamesreid860 won when he was in the top five. 

I am also interested to see the breakdown of the top contributers each time. 

Supporter11 months ago

I was top 5 but not top 3 I think

Supporter12 months ago

I know I was in the top 3 when I won.  Which I know I'm not this time (hence my hope for an upset) ha!

One of my goals is to be the top contributer sometime. Not as important whether or not I win, I just want to be the top contributer sometime.
