Sudoku limited problem at CGE
28. Jul 2007 at 18:41
 
So after waiting hours as first in line I arrive to the retrousb table only to find out that they sold all the limited copies BEFORE the show even opened!  I can only hope that Al will make a few more.

I can't make more, since I can't get more of the numbered holograms (plus I lost 5 of them)

I was pretty sure this was gonna happen.  I'm sure a lot of the other CGE exclusives were picked up before the show by exibitors. There were only like 30 copies to go around and CGE is pretty big compared to other game shows.

Hey Al you say you lost 5? so are there 5 Gold and 95 grey or 5 gold and 90 Grey of what happened?

10 gold and 85 grey.

I was going to make the golds 1-10, but I lost 6-10 (thats what I get for tearing off those stickers from the roll to put away for safe keeping)  so now #1-5 and #96-100 are golds and #10-95 are greys.

If I ever find those other stickers (and I've already searched the entire house) I'll post the info.

Edit-   say this under the assumption I dont lose any more stickers.  I still havent made the last 25 greys.

Thanks for the update Al, I was trying to keep everything straight with these and I wasn't sure of a few things. I guess that means, there's still 5 Gold after the CGE one.  and numbers 6-10 will never exisit lol. anyway still very cool.

#1 mine
#2 belongs to Martin (for promoting it on this site)
#3 was won at a Toronto meet by CanadianZombie
#4 was won by jcheatle at midwestgaming classic
#5 belongs to gundam pilot (for selling at midwest classic for me)
I'm unsure about who has thenext 3, but their numbers are"
#96 belongs to Jumpman Jr for beta testing
#97to bunnyboy for production
#98 whoever wins it at cge
#99 Eurocon winner (November?)
#100 Nesworld winner (some point in the future)

So really only 5 can be won.

And you are right #6-10 are most likely lost.

I made a v-line straight for bunnyboy's booth first thing at CGE cause I was trying to snag a gray one for Dain.  I was sad to seem them gone and I even waited in line  Cry

Maybe a suggestion for next time, release the game mid-show so everyone in attendance has a fair shot at getting a copy.

Hey Al,

Any idea how soon the NESWorld contest will be for the last Gold Sudoku?  And what type of contest do you plan for it to be?

I dont know what the contest will be yet.
I was planning on doing a fighting game based on Nesworld people, so if I ever get that going, maybe the contest will be around designing the characters or settings.  But I really dont know.  Eurocon is in November, so I'll likely want to have it after that (but before 2008).

Ok.  I'll be all over that when it happens.  That's definitely a great way to get people encouraged!
