Winners, contest winners everywhere!

We’re popping in to let everyone know that another contest has a winner. The cleverly titled Contest #2, tell us your fave ocean creature and why for a copy of Oceanopoly, has its winner – Christie!

Also, we did have to re-draw for Beluga #2 from Contest #1 (confused yet?) and his/her fuzzy countenance goes to…David! We know you are excited, David, just don’t gloat, OK?

Thanks, everyone, for having fun with us.

Contest #2 produced such cool and intriguing entries that we have decided to give each sea creature chosen an in-depth post or series of posts in the near future. That way, WE don’t have to choose a favorite! (But Alexa will tell you hers if you ask.)

We’d like to invite each entry’s author to work with us on the post(s) for his/her creature, too, if willing.

Contest #3 coming up! We are haggling over the prize right now, and will post it when the dust settles. ;)

Maybe we need to get more creative with contest names while we’re at it.

We’ve been waiting and we just can’t wait anymore!

O4E is officially addicted to contests, so, without further hesitation, here’s our second contest, and the reason why we’ve waited until now to announce the first contest’s winners (below).

Contest-amundo number two is another easy one to enter, but it’s going to be a short one!oceanopoly-board-game

Between now and midnight, Monday, 3/30, all you have to do to earn an entry is leave a comment on this post on what your favorite ocean animal is and why. yes, we already know this very well for some of you! You can enter multiple times and detail second- and third, etc. favorite creatures, too. That’s it!

What do you win for your efforts, you ask? Your own copy of OCEANOPOLY, of course!

This game was given to Alexa by her dear aunt, uncle and cousins for her birthday last year. Once we cleared the dining room table for our first take-no-prisoners quest to acquire land and oceans via hopping our cast-metal sea creatures around the board, we were hooked. Just make sure you have a good banker! ;) (This game is recommended for ages 8 and up.)

Here are the official contest rules:

    *Enter your favorite sea creature in a comment on this post for an entry
    *Enter as many times as you like
    *Entries close at midnight, Monday, 3/30
    *Winner will be chosen and notified by email on 3/31
    * Note: winner must respond to prize notification email within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen

And now for an update on launch week contest: first, THANK YOU for making our first contest such a huge success!

We had a lot of entries, and winner number one is…Tim. Thanks for entering, Tim!

Winner number two – where are you? We’re still waiting to hear from winner number two, so if you are reading this, give us a shout – and we’ll keep in on the low. (hint, hint)

Also, if we do not hear from winner number two by the end of this week, guess what? We’ll draw again on Saturday evening, 3/28, before Earth Hour and let you know of the alternate winner after we turn the power back on (more on that coming up).

Ready, set, GO! Tell us your fave sea creature and why, then tell us in a comment on this post.

Good luck!
