Chrononauts Giveaway Results – Clover Leaf Strikes!
Greetings dear readers,
I promised at the beginning of last week that I was giving away a free copy of Chrononauts to one lucky reader who entered into the contest by midnight this past Saturday. Early Sunday morning, I entered into a random list generator all of the names of those who “liked” the Dice Hate Me page on Facebook or spread some love through Twitter, and double entered those whose names were on the Dice Hate Me subscription list. For the sake of adequate shuffling, I decided to hit “randomize” on the list generator six times (like a six-sided die) and after the dust settled the winner turned out to be…
For those who don’t know, Christine is one of those gamers who inspired the gaming archetype of Clover Leaf, as described in my recent article “The Seven Habits of Highly Dysfunctional Boardgamers.” Seriously, she’s one of those players that you just wish you could take to Vegas and retire early off the winnings. She’s worse than Rainman and Forrest Gump combined. There have been times I’ve gamed with her when she would be in last place in a game, throw down a couple of cards and then look up with a bewildered stare and say “Um, I think I won.” When she “liked” the Facebook page and subscribed to the email updates, I joked that it was a shame for all the rest of those in the running because they didn’t really stand a chance.
Oh, how I wish I was wrong.
The good news is that since she handily won the Chrononauts giveaway, she isn’t eligible for any other Dice Hate Me giveaways for six months. The bad news is that I have to continue to play lose games to her at the office on a regular basis.
I wish to congratulate Christine (I wish I had her luck), and thank all of you out there who entered the contest and have shown how much you enjoy and support this website. I promise that there will be many more exciting giveaways and intriguing, exclusive content in the future.
Thanks for reading!
