 Post subject: Quest for Al Emmo freebies: So you want to win a lottery...

Hear ye, hear ye.

For all those who've been wanting  a copy of El Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's mine, but have been unable to scrap together the money to buy the game and are feeling down about it, and down about the fact that they are unable to support Himalaya studios financially by owning a copy of their fine game, there's good news. Some anonymous buyer placed an order for two Standard Edition games and told the AGDs to give them away to whoever they wanted. What shocked me the most is, I was given the responsibility of giving away the games. I don't know how to explain how I'm feeling right, just suddenly, out of the blue, picked out to organize a contest or a raffle to give away two freebies. Maybe it's the same shock that some TV personalities felt when, during their ‘Average Joe' days just did their thing and some producer or director came along and saying ‘you'll do, you'll do' and they drag them away to appear on TV, and from there, there fame starts.

Anyways, enough of the emotional silliness, let's get down to business, shall we? I'm going to organize the lottery in this fashion: Pick a number, any number, from 1 to200 (and just one), and once enough numbers have been picked, or enough time has passed (whichever comes first), I'll write those numbers down on strips of paper and mix them around in a bag, afterwards the two lucky winners will be drawn out.

However, there are some rules I've made up in an attempt to hinder scammers and other unethical types (though I'm sure that there is none of that around here, and that the winner will be an honest fan). For one thing, brand new members who joined in recently (and by that I mean AFTER the lottery started, not before) and just make one post in the thread picking a number will be not be selected for the draw. Though these people could be fans hoping to win, they could be another username of someone who already joined the contest and wants to increase their chances of winning. I don't mean to be unfair to newbies and other people who want to be active in the community, but I have no real way of telling which is which.

Also, once the winner is selected they will be contacted and given a password to tell to the AGD (in private of course) to prove that they've won. And since I'll be informing the AGDs of the winner before anyone else, anyone trying to guess the password will be disqualified. I'm sure the AGDs would give me the names if this would ever occur.
Alrighty then! Pick your numbers, fellas, and good luck! :D

MAJOR EDIT: I've also decided to extend the reach of the lottery by posting it on other QFG related forums. The numbers for those forums will differ, obviously, but the basic rules will remain the same. So the winner may not be on this forum at all. No offense you guys, but I'm trying to give people who aren't members here a chance. ;)

Also by this, another rule is in place... if you've entered the lottery in one forum, you can't make another post in the other forum if you're a member there. :)

Till next time stay cool :smokin

Slarty, I said pick a number from 1 to 200. 667 is too far off, but you did mention 47, so that's the number yer gonna get. ;)

OK, fellas, keep it coming.

*rubs his eyes* I guess I should be wearing my contacts more often... either that, or I was thinking of Hitman 47 when I was looking at your numbers. :p

So it's 42, not 47.

37 for me I guess.

And I just noticed cew-smoke and AsianMusicGuy both picked 36.  Maybe edit a list of taken numbers into the first post so people know what's taken?

Thanks for the info. So I'll say it here. Please make sure no one picked your number first.

So I'll just wait a couple of days to see if Cew Smoke notices this and edits it to an unclaimed number, if he doesn't, I'll chose the number for him... right before I make the final count and the draws.

OK, and one final note. From another forum I have so far two more folks from the QFMG forums. It seems that not that many people are interested in owning a copy of the game. Ahh well, it gives you guys a bigger chance then. ;)

Till next time stay cool  :smokin
