Title: BGC Retreat 2015 - Vote for lucky draw game
Post by: jack208 on September 23, 2015, 03:35:52 am

As is customary in each of our annual BGC Retreat, there'll be one lucky draw prize of a medium-weight Euro game. We've given away games like Long Shot, Kingdom Builder, etc but this year we thought we'll make it more interesting for the participants by asking you to choose any one game for us to buy from Essen for the lucky draw!


 


Yes you read it right, you can choose a game that we'll get for you from Essen Spiel 2015 - it can also be an older release - and one of you lucky participants will get to bring it home at the end of Day Two. The criteria for the game selection


BGC will give our best effort to acquire the game in Essen, however in the event we cannot get the first game of choice, we'll get the one with the 2nd most votes etc.


 


If you are one of the BGC Retreat 2015 participants, welcome to cast your vote here. One vote each. Non-participant votes won't be counted (since the forum does not provide a mechanism for us to limit who can cast votes so in theory this is open to everyone).


 


If no one casts any vote, then BGC wil exercise our own discretion and pick up any game in the above price range for the lucky draw. So exercise your choice to influence us now. :)


 



Note: I've not tried the poll feature of this forum in allowing others (non-poster) to add more choices. If you do not see the "Edit This Poll" option, then it means only I can add more game choices to the poll. If this is the case, I'll give everyone a chance to shout their game(s) of choice to add to the list above. You can shout more than one game (but remember, the more choices you have, the more diluted the votes would be). Everyone have until end of this month 30/9 to add your choice of game(s).


 


After which, I'll remind everyone on 1/10 to cast your votes.

kekeke.. I didn't know 504's retail price. The sys needed two choices so I saja add one game there. Will replace it with Shakespeare now, and also pending other's shout for their game choices. :)

That's a good suggestion Emil. :P

Oh I forgot to mention, non-participation's suggestion if taken up shall be sponsored by the non-participant who suggested it. *cough*.

Everyone, join me in saying a big Thank You to emil for his sponsorship (we'll remove the upper limit on price to allow his suggestion to go thru!!)  :bow:

I can't just simply donate/sponsor also, I need to seek the organizer's approval. They might have something interesting in place for all the participants...
