As many of you know (likely due to my whining), the Kickstarter for Far West ended in August 2011 with a December 2011 delivery date. Almost 2.5 years later, we're still waiting.

The latest announced plan is that the PDF will be released April 28, 2014, but please keep in mind that there have been more than 20 release dates set previously. The designer has surgery and returns to work in mid-May. Before going to print, any reported mistakes will be corrected. Cubicle 7 Entertainment is supposed to print and ship.

So let's have a pool. The person that comes closest to predicting the postmarked date when I have the physical core book in my hands will win a $25US Gift Certificate to the game store of your choice (as long as I can purchase it online).

The Rules

To enter, add a reply below with your date prediction (such as August 14, 2017).
Your entry must be submitted on or before April 26, 2014 US Eastern Time (GMT-5).
Only one entry per user.
Only one entry per date. For example, only one person - the first - can guess August 14, 2017.
Your entry will be confirmed when I post your name and date in the post below this one.
Your entry must be a date. 'Never' might be a distinct possibility, but it's not a valid entry for this contest.
The person coming closest to the POSTMARKED date on the package (I will provide photos) will win. Ties will be broken by the person who has the earliest date (you optimist!).
If the print version of the core book is canceled, this contest will also be canceled.
Let's say anyone associated with Adamant Entertainment or current Cubicle 7 Entertainment full-time employees or the Far West project is not eligible. Also, I will not participate (nor anyone in my immediate family).
I will not pick up the book at a Convention if available. For the contest to be valid, it must ship to me.
It's only $25, so please no shenanigans. I'll be the sole judge and arbiter and reserve the right to invalidate an entry if I suspect sockpuppetry or other nonsense. This is a personal contest run by me and has no association with the Geek.


Entries are now closed. The person closest to the date I receive my copy of Far West wins the GC! Good luck!

If he says the PDF will get shipped end April 2014, I'm going to be the optimistic glass-half-full kinda guy and be nice by saying:

July 12th 2014.

Since "the heat death of the universe" doesn't count as a date, I'll go for September 30, 2014.

Re: Far West Release Date Pool - Win $25 Gift Certificate - Unofficial Contest
BTW, sorry for the short entry time. I procrastinated and then checked to make sure this was okay to post. I wanted the deadline to be before the April 28 PDF 'release' to add an element of the unknown to the mix.

I also edited to rules to make sure that this is open to almost everyone. I know we have some people who have done work for C7 before. Basically, as long as you aren't:

Dominic McDowall - CEO
Jon Hodgson - Deputy CEO & Art Director
Andrew Kenrick - Managing Editor
Nick Robinson - Line Developer & Customer Service
Stuart Boon - Line Developer
Walter Ciechanowski - Line Developer
Scott Dorward - Line Developer
Andrew Peregrine - Line Developer
Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan - Line Developer
Gareth-Michael Skarka - Line Developer
Ken Spencer - Line Developer
Paul Bourne - Graphic Designer
Scott Purdy - Staff Artist
TS Luikart

You can enter.
