Winner Selected for “Late Christmas Present” Game Give-Away

Matt Worden's Games at TheGameCrafter.comMy first post of the new year announced a game give-away called “Late Christmas Present.” To enter, you had to make a comment (or tweet or FB me) with someone you would like me to send one of my games to.

I had 10 entries that met the criteria (I’ll give the list of entrants at the end of this post), and randomly selected a single winner.

The winner of the Late Christmas Present Game Give-Away is Scott Metzger, who would like me to send a copy of Jump Gate to his friend Dave. I will be contacting Scott directly on how to arrange delivery of the game to Dave.

Thanks to everyone who played along, and to everyone who shared info about the give-away via the various social media! 🙂

Now, here’s the list of all entrants … Continue reading

“Best Laid Plans” vs. “Real Life Game Changer”

Matt in a Hospital - Jan 2014I was pretty proud of the work I did preparing for 2014 on the games front. I worked out my two main core themes for grouping my TGC-published games, figured out which pitch-to-publisher games to keep focusing on, worked out the order in which I expected to do things in, sketched out a vague con attendance schedule, and even got the website setup for the next materials to be coming.

And then the new year greeted me with a pretty serious medical emergency. (You can read the details on my CaringBridge site.) While I seem to be out of the immediate-danger situation, I have a bit of a long, slow road ahead in getting everything straightened out and to be back out in the clear.

And I don’t really have any clue how this is going to affect the games stuff.  I’m not really even figuring it out right now — I’ll get that all sorted over the next few weeks/months. For now, I’m thinking just about everything I had prepared to commit to is on hold until I get my feet back under me. I may not make any cons. I’ll just take things as they come and give you updates as things get rolling. So, stay tuned on that and we’ll see how things go.

Matt Worden's Games at TheGameCrafter.comNow, I did want to make sure that everyone knew that I WILL be carrying out the “Late Christmas Present” give-away that I just launched last week before all of the medical fun began. So, please add your comments to that post, or send me info via Facebook or Twitter … there’s still a couple days before I throw the entries in a hat and draw out the winner. 🙂

 

Right out of the Gate for 2014: “Late Christmas Present” Game Give-Away

Matt Worden's Games at TheGameCrafter.comOver the Christmas/New Year break, I picked up a few more Twitter followers, putting me over 1500. In celebration of that milestone, along with a fun way to start out 2014, I am going to be giving away some of my games.

Here’s the surprise: No purchase necessary. No “likes” or “follows” or “pluses” or “shares” or any of those types of things necessary either. 🙂

So, what sort of rigmarole will I put you through to be eligible? Simply: I want some direct feedback … and I want you to be generous, by suggesting someone *else* I should send a game to.

Here are the formal rules: Continue reading
