So, Christmas break happened, then we started to move offices, then we got hit by a snow storm, then we continued to move offices, then we had to wait on internet, then we had to catch up on a WHOLE BUNCH of urgent stuff that we were mostly ignoring because we didn't have the internet.  AND NOW, WE ARE BACK BABY!  And I've got a list of winners from our Christmas giveaway.

After watching my daughter open her presents on Christmas day I ended up on on my phone poking around.  A thought occurred to me, I wonder if anyone else is a big enough Plaid Hat Games fan that they found time to stop by on Christmas Day. I decided to post up a quick Christmas giveaway and got over 100 responses.  So we are giving away 10 prize packages.  We entered the names into a random name generator and pulled 10 winners.  I then, in proper geek fashion, rolled a d20 for each winner.  The winner with the highest roll got the biggest prize and so on.

The Winners:

With a roll of 4 (tie) reroll of 3, the 10th place winner is Killercactus.  He wins a full set of each second summoner released to date.

With a roll of 4 (tie) reroll of 7, the 9th place winner is Robin. He also wins a full set of each second summoner released to date.

With a roll of 9 dspringer wins a BioShock Infinite: Siege of Columbia.

Snalg rolled an 11, he also gets a BioShock Infinite: Siege of Columbia.

HeroscaperGuy rolled a 12 and gets a BioShock Infinite: Siege of Columbia.

The Inner Geek rolled a 13 and wins a BioShock Infinite: Siege of Columbia.

4th place prize goes to Sinclair 5150 who rolled a 16. He wins not only the 6 second summoner released so far, but my first off the press proof copies of the Jungle Elves and Cloaks second summoners!

With a roll of 18 3rd place goes to Umbrageofsnow.  He wins my other set of all 8 second summoners.

2nd Place is a Mice and Mystics complete with Heart of Glorm.  It goes to Heitsola who tied for the top with a roll of 20 and rerolled a 13.

The grand prize is a copy of the Summoner Wars Master Set, BioShock Infinite: Siege of Columbia, City of Remnants and Mice and Mystics.  With a roll of 20 and a  reroll of 20 Crockpot gets the big bundle.

If any of the winners would like to trade prizes please work out all trades in the comments so I have a public record of them.  I will ship out the prizes on Monday so any trading needs to be completed and agreed to by both parties, or both parties will get their original prize. If the email on your account here is a phony make sure you get in touch with me to let me know as that will be how I reach out and collect shipping info.

If you weren't a winner and covet any one of these prizes stop by our store and treat yourself.  We appreciate all of you who hang out here at

This is awesome. Umbrageofsnow has been on Vassal and really interested in the Second Summoners. I'm stoked he is getting them! Grats to all!

Man, I guess my unlucky SW streak lately was because I was gonna win something. Announcement here - as PHG has already given me these from playtesting, these decks will either be giveaways to listeners of the Doug's Guide podcast, or possibly used as tournament prizes for an upcoming tournament either in Colby's new office or my local store in May. Thanks, PHG!

Holy crap, that is awesome! Thank you so much Colby. I've been trying to figure out which Second Summoners to buy because I couldn't afford all of them. It was proving to be a very tough decision.

You guys are awesome. If you weren't already my favorite game company, you definitely would be now. Alas, I already display the hat of plaid on my BGG profile, so there's nothing else I can do but say thank you.

Congrats to Crockpot beating me on the reroll. Thanks Plaidhat, my kids and I really like Mice and Mystics and we didn't have Heart of Glorm yet. I run a gaming club for students at a university and Mice and Mystics would be a great prize for our Summoner Wars tournament.

Wow the first two CL/JE second summoner packs! You guys could sell those on eBay for $1,000,000000 or something.

Crockpot commented:

Ya! It's funny that I already own 3 of the games. I could always use more Summoner War cards. Don't own Mice and Mystics, can't wait for that one. Maybe they will make great gift to a future Doug convert.

Hey Colby, springer and I are going to trade our prizes, my second summoner so for his Bioshock. I imagine he will post that here as we'll. Thanks for this awesome giveaway, just another showing of how great this company is.
