It's the moment of truth: selection time! This is pretty straightforward: I took all the applicant names, put them into random.org and generated a random list. Applicants 1-10 are the winners, 11-15 are not. Since there was 15 total applications and 10 prizes, the odds of winning was 67%.

Congratulations! I'll be contacting you shortly via PM.

For those that didn't win, sorry! I really wish I had more keys, but them are the breaks. Keep in mind that it's possible I will hold another giveaway in the near future so you can enter again.

One parting thought for those that won: if any of you are willing to do a Let's Play on YouTube or an AAR (After Action Report) please post about it! I'd like to share your experience on the game! Posted Image

Three people haven't responded to my PM yet, so against better judgement I sent them an email as a reminder. If I do not receive a response by the 14th then I'll start contacting runners up. ;)

It's exactly two weeks after I sent out PMs to the winners and 2 haven't replied yet, and that means there will be 2 runners up! Dantprime and Puremix, it's your lucky day! Sending off PMs now. Posted Image

Lucker Noob and ASAD: sorry, but this was mentioned in my initial post. People don't want to wait forever to find out if they won, and I don't want to be constantly sending out PMs and emails as reminders. Posted Image

EDIT:

Both runners up contacted me within hours, so this contest is officially closed. Thanks to all who participated, "liked", and commented and also a big thanks to Thorondor for his kind donation to help me secure these copies while TFTD was on sale. Congrats to all, hope to hear back from some of you with your experience of TFTD and above all, Enjoy!Posted Image

I'll ante the offer, if Zombie and I can reach an agreement, I'll give $100.00 worth of games to any member of S.C. who can answer "10 Strategy Questions."

Let's not go there just yet, NoX, please. Firstly, that is a lot of money. Secondly, the correct answer is sometimes debatable so both qs and a' would have to be VERY carefully chosen. Thirdly, if it is supposed to be an SC thing, I can't imagine it being dependant on a member. There may be more people answering correctly than you imagined, which would make funding impossible etc etc.

Contacting Zombie is the best route for now, but please continue this debate through PMs.

It's not a lot of money. I already have the 10 questions chosen. If anyone can guess these questions, I'd be surprised. Anyone attempting to use Google or Wiki system will be sadly mistaken. I added Zombie to Steam 4 days ago, he has yet to add me.

Just popping in to say nice work on the give away Zombie!

I hope all the winners enjoy TFTD even half as much as I did! (still do).

I recommend anyone to play a vanilla playthrough and enjoy the game in it's original glory. If you feel the urge to play again I'd highly recommend the TFTD extender which fixes many of the games bugs and has some interesting mods.

Thanks for the kind words! TFTD is a great game and hopefully everyone gets a chance to play it at some point. :)
