From Cities

Okay, you've waited long enough (Rodney knows you've waited long enough), and it soon will be time to give out prizes for the games we had at my birthday party!1

However, in order to amuse myself maximally2 we'll be following the time-honored Thogistani tradition of using a grab bag approach.

Contents

The Rules

  • The prizes from Thog's Big Bag of Prizes have been split into 45 lots. They may or may not be of equal value.4
  • Winners of the various contests have been ordered based on many criteria, including (but not limited to) difficulty/Amount of AP required, how much a given contest amused me, and a random number generator
  • When it is your turn, select a prize lot by listing it (i.e. "Lot 5") and appending your name after it (using the standard ~~~~ method - the timestamps are very important). You may select one and only one lot.
  • After the previous winner has selected their prize, the next has 24 hours maximum to choose a prize5. If 24 hours elapses without a selection, that player loses their turn and goes to the end of the line.
  • After all items have been selected (and all missing winners have a second chance) any lots left over will be disposed of in a way that provides maximum amusement (suggestions welcome on the talk page)
  • Arguments, complaints and such will be launched (along with possibly the offender6) into a volcano.

The Winners

Winners will select in the following order. Even if you're in the lower part of the list, pay attention once the scramble starts - if everyone selects their items fairly quickly, we may go through the list fairly fast.

The Footnotes

1 Yes, it was back in January. Shut up.
2 The fact that it means I don't have to choose what to give people has nothing to do with the prize awarding method. Honest. Would I lie?3
3 The correct answer here is "no", of course.
4 Honestly, they're probably not.
5 This is why the timestamps are so important.
6 But that hardly ever happens
7 Phw passed on Charizard back at the party, so Maawee claimed him then.
8 Where would the fun be in that?
