February/March Trivia Prize Pack

Postby jabba359 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 17:07 +0000

Hey, this prize pack has a few last chance/only chance items. The Hungarian vol 16 HC (#40/100) is the only copy I have to give away and comes with a signed and numbered bookplate. This prize is complements of Krash01 and http://www.vadviragok.hu/. The RCCC 2016 badge is the last one I have, as is the old-color cloissone pin.

As always, thanks to Stan for all the items he has donated for these giveaways and for signing the piles of stuff I bring him at conventions. The giveaways wouldn't be possible without his generosity. Also, thanks to all of you for participating and making this a great forum.

So, how does one win a prize pack? Here's how:

*Participate in the weekly trivia as you normally do.
*The winner or winners (if more than one) of the weekly trivia will be entered into the monthly prize drawing. If you win a weekly trivia question and don't want to be entered into the prize giveaway, just PM me and I'll exclude you from the randomizer at the end of the month.
*The winners of the trivia that ends during the prize months are eligible. If a trivia question ends on a following month, you will be entered into the next prize pack pool.
*As people win the weekly trivia contests, I'll update the list of all the winners (in the order they won) and then use a random number generator (https://www.random.org/) to select the Prize Pack winner.
*I will announce in this thread who the prize pack winner is and contact them via PM for shipping info. International participants are welcome to play along.
*Participants can not win two prize packs in a row, but they can still play the weekly trivia any weekly wins on the month after a win will not count as an entry into the monthly prize pack. Back to back wins are rare, but I want to make sure that with the small number of players we have, the prizes get spread out a bit. Thanks for understanding.
*These rules are subject to change on subsequent months if there are bugs to work out.

Here's what's up for grabs (remember, if it's signed in the picture, then the item you receive will be signed as well). Items are not to scale :D :

Hey jabba,

You can remove my name from line 2. I didn't officially enter Maka's contest. I was aware of the answer but I didn't play hoping someone else would play/win.

I’m totally not familiar with this HC Edition. Can I get some info on it? I assume it is a standard volume 16 Shrouded moon but from Hungary?
That RCC badge is my favorite cover art...love the colors and design
Where did that CBLDF/TFAW signature card come from? When was it released? I’ve never found one or seen one pop up for sale anywhere. Was it a common thing and I just missed it?

That is a special limited edition hardcover of Shrouded Moon published by Stan's Hungarian publisher, which is s/n on a b/w tip in plate, limited to 100 copies. It is the only Usagi book published in Hungary to have both a standard tpb and a hardcover edition. I believe it was released to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Usagi being published in Hungary. Unlike the English ltd edition hardcovers, this one does not have a dust jacket, the artwork is printed on the actual cover, similar to the Usagi yojimbo Saga hardcovers.

What Steve said. Here's the webpage for the book: http://www.vadviragok.hu/Usagi-Yojimbo-16-dedikalt

As for the CBLDF/TFAW card, on the back it advertises an auction benefiting the CBLDF in 2009 (TFAW must have been sponsoring the event). I'm guessing by the date (July 25th) and the listing of Stan's booth number on the front that the auction was run in tandem with San Diego Comic Con.

?


The guys said everything about this :). It was published as a special edition for 10th Anniversary of publishing Usagi here in Hungary
We've a left a few copies of this book, and I gave one to Kyle last year to include it in the prize pack.
(The tip in plate art is one of my commissions :) )

These are the Croatian posters I was referring to in another thread. I'll probably add one to the next prize pack.

I'm doing a whirlwind of work through this weekend, then I'll get around to making sure I have all the weekly winners accounted for and do the lottery. I should get back home Sunday afternoon or evening, so should do it that evening or Monday at the latest.

Maka pointed out I mistakenly listed him as a weekly winner in week 7 (which would have made him the prize winner). While he posted the next trivia question, it was because nobody solved the previous week. So he requested I remove his spot since he hadn't actually won that week and run the randomizer again. I deleted the "winning" post you saw earlier until I could jump back on my computer to run it again and grab a screenshot. So here is the do-over:

Looks like a day for lucky number 7. Chopalong Slashity!
