For those of you who don’t know, board gaming is one of my hobbies. (I also review games over at iSlaytheDragon.com.) As a board gamer, one of the biggest days on my calendar is Tabletop Day which is held in the spring every year. This year it’s on Saturday, April 30th. Started by Geek and Sundry, it has since spread to include game stores, gaming groups, and even individuals who simply play games with their families and friends. It’s a day to celebrate analog games and gather together over tables big and small just to play games together. For us gamer geeks, it’s like having another Christmas on the calendar.
Since there are quite a few good mythology-themed board and card games out there, I thought I’d celebrate both Tabletop Day and Broken Fate’s release by giving away a card game, Zeus on the Loose, from Gamewright Games. The winner will also receive a Broken Fate swag pack.
How to Enter:
Post a board game-related comment on the original Facebook post. Tell me the name of your favorite game, a funny story about a gaming experience, some benefit you get from board games, or how you got into board gaming.
Sharing isn’t required, but is always appreciated.
Only board game-related comments will be considered for entry, and only one comment per person will count, so please don’t spam the comments, although you’re certainly welcome to comment on other people’s posts and start a discussion if you want to.
The contest will run from April 27, 2016 through May 3, 2016. Each valid comment will be assigned a number and Random.org will choose the winning number on or about May 4th, 2016. International participants are welcome, however, if an international winner is chosen, I will award that person an ebook copy of Broken Fate, instead. (Sorry. International shipping of prizes is just too expensive.) In that case, another drawing will be held for the game and swag pack.
The winner’s name will be posted on my Facebook page and on my Current Giveaways page. The winner will need to message my Facebook page within ten days of the announcement and provide a mailing address to claim their prize, otherwise the prize will be forfeited.
(Note that neither Facebook nor Gamewright Games sponsors or endorses anything about this contest. It’s all sponsored and administered by Jennifer Derrick.)
About Zeus on the Loose (from Gamewright’s website)
“Did you know that, in addition to their supreme powers, the Greek gods were endowed with the special ability to change the course of card games? Well, at least that’s the case in Zeus on the Loose! As you figure out how harness the strengths of the various gods within, you’ll sharpen strategic thinking along with valuable addition and subtraction skills. A quick warning about Hera: Though she may be the most powerful goddess in the game, don’t get on her bad side or else she might wind up helping an opponent steal Zeus and win!”
