And I thought yesterday was my day.

What happens if the winner does not respond and does not provide an address? Does the prize get recycled? Does it go to another contest? Does it go to the next closest participant?

Inquiring minds.

Steve said...

Sorry neebs, but I'll be sending in my address.

I guess I'll have to send in a video of the prize since it's a flip book...

Neeebs said...

Steve: Actually, I was curious on the methodology, not wanting to Pimp your well deserved prize.

Because you know that these guys always come up with some pretty zany, random stuff.

I could envision a covenant that the remaining players get to rotate possession of the prize, or some other wacky deal.

But alas, we won't know the answer will we.

And, YES you owe it to us to send in a photo of the prize in an entertaining manner.

I'm looking forward to the photo.

Peace

neeebs, I hadn't even thought of the situation if steve hadn't sent in his address (got your email, steve, it's on its way today).

I suppose I would have asked the remaining twelve contestants for their snail mail addresses, and then sent each person a couple of pages from the flip book.

Neeebs said...

Wow. Who would get the fist pump?

What about taking a picture of each page and making them one long row of pictures online for us to flip (scroll) through ourselves? An online flipbook.

Neebs: Don't worry, I didn't actually think you were trying to snag my swag!

I'll try to get a video of the flip book in action sent in by game time on the day I receive it. Hopefully tomorrow...
