Occasionally we like to run contests and giveaways for The Game Crafter community. These are not the same as our quarterly game design contests. Instead, these events are just fun ways that we can give away some prizes and show our appreciation to our awesome community!


The Game Crafter is hosting this new contest to celebrate having over 2,000 board game pieces, game accessories, and game upgrades in our shop! Watch the video below for a summary of the contest and then scroll down to get additional details.

Here's how it works:

We have 10 riddles on Rafflecopter and each riddle will have a clue (written or visual) about a specific board game piece, accessory, or upgrade in our shop. Your job is to solve the riddle, figure out where that item is in our shop, and then paste the full URL to the product in the answer field for each riddle. This is half riddle, half scavenger hunt! :)

Winners will be chosen randomly in the Rafflecopter app. The first winner will need to have a correct answer for the first riddle. The second winner will need to have a correct answer for the second riddle. The third winner will need to have a correct answer for the third riddle, and so on. Once 10 winners are picked, the 4 top prizes of $25 TGC shop credit + Doctor Esker's Notebook will be randomly given out to 4 winners and the other 6 winners will receive the runner up prize of $5 in TGC shop credit. In addition, they will also receive a copy of Doctor Esker’s Notebook as long as they have answered all 10 riddles correctly!

We’d like to thank David Dobson from Plankton Games for co-sponsoring this contest with us. He actually created the riddles for the contest and he is the designer of Doctor Esker’s Notebook. It’s a new kind of puzzle game that includes 73 cards and has 9 devious puzzles to solve.

The contest runs from March 6th @ 12pm ET to March 16th @ 12pm ET. Good Luck!
