YOUR MISSION: Game acquisition
Hasbro has created a new promotional version of Risk, called Risk: Black Ops It is incredibly cool, and even more incredibly hard to get. Only 1000 copies have been made, and it will not be sold in stores.

OBJECTIVE: Risk: Black Ops
Luckily, BoardGameGeek has acquired 5 copies of this game to give away to lucky site members! The contest will run from March 27nd - April 14th, with the winner announced on April 16th. Many geeks died to bring us these games.

MISSION PLAN:
There are 6 images of board game bits. You will need to enter the BoardGameGeek GameID for the game that the image belongs to. For each correct answer you'll receive 1 entry in a random drawing to win a copy of the game "Risk: Black Ops" You may only play this contest once, for a maximum of 6 possible entries in the drawing (if you get all correct). The odds of winning will be determined by the number of entries. If a piece appeared in multiple games, the earliest occurence is the correct answer.

The Small Print:
The contest is open to BoardGameGeek.com members who have entered valid and verifiable information upon registration, including name and email address.

Employees, agents, and family members of Hasbro or BoardGameGeek are not eligible to participate in the Contest and shall be ineligible for any prize covered herein. Entrants acknowledge that Hasbro and BoardGameGeek are not liable for reimbursement of any prize or consideration other than a single game from the list above. Residents of jurisdictions where this type of Contest drawing is prohibited by law or subject to registration are ineligible to participate in the Contest and shall be ineligible for any prize covered herein.

No purchase or online access fee is necessary. Winners will be notified by email within 5 days of the contest end.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

You don't see the absence of all color--so colorblindness is irrelevant.

If it won't be sold in stores, why bother doing a printing run of 1000?

Hmmm -- I only got three, but I answered just five.

However, I was pretty darn confident about those five.

I wonder if there could be some overlap/redundancy with some answers.




In any case, thanks for running the contest -- great theming!!

cool

Wow...looking at these, I only know one for sure. No clue whatsoever on the other five. This is easily the toughest contest yet, at least for me.

And these are supposed to be from games...

Wow, I am not the geek that I thought I was.

I guess I am looking at 0 for 6.

Maybe I'll just sleep on it.

I only joined today after being a long time lurker...
And to my joy check in this evening to find a contest with prizes I'd die for... Ok perhaps just sustain a minor bruise for!:)

I got 5/6 and the draw day is the day before my birthday...
*crosses fingers and pulls my lucky scrunched up face*

Good luck everyone!

I must be a huge nerd, I knew 5 of these, and got the sixth on my first look. I expect a lot of 6/6 people. (No offense to those who missed some)

Well 5 out of 6. Don't know what I got wrong, I could have sworn I was 100% certain about all of them. But there is at least one picture that could be taken from two games, or rather different versions of one game...

Don't know how in the world I just got 6/6 - maybe it's broken?

I only own two of the games, and two of the answers were total guesses.

Wahey!

Thanks for another great contest! The easiest one by far for me. Funny to see other people thinking so differently.
