    I have tweaked shipping a bit (it is now $1 less for both types) and I am working on adding another randomized pin prize for the middle of the pack (spot 19.)

    Lots of reasons to join!

    I have added a 'middle of the pack' prize for the number randomized to spot 19. See post #5.

    So here is a question... What would make a pin game more fun that hasn't been done recently? I am new to these, so I am modeling this game on the last couple which were run under the current rules. Obviously adding a whole bunch of grail pins would make a game a blast, but since I don't have a bunch of grail pins... what else would be appealing and fun?

    Ahh, definitely can see how this rule change would be appealing to some... BUT not within my power... it is specifically stated in the Q&A section of the rules, so must follow the rules. Would need to take that one up with the mods. :)

    It would be fun to play out this game while counting down the days to the WDW Animation Celebration event registration and pin selection announcement on 24Apr2018. For me it would be the perfect distraction. I keep constructing mental pictures my perfect grail pin, hoping it magically appears in the event pin list.

    The timing is pretty perfect with only seven spots left to fill.

    I think you have done just about everything you can to make an awesome game. (Short of filling it with grails, as you mention.) The addition of the mid-range bonus was a nice touch. Now it's just a matter of a couple people grabbing up those last spots and it's off to the races!

    If anyone is new to pin games... it doesn't matter when you sign up your chances in the game are the same as everyone else for the pin lots and prizes. So even if you are the last one to sign up your chances of winning are the same as the first person.

    Still eight spots to go?! I can’t believe this hasn’t sold out yet. More pins than spots, two grand prizes, several consolation prizes, AND a middle-of-the-pack bonus. Come on people! Buy those last spots so you don’t miss out! :)

    Absolutely! Your name is now in spot 12. Thanks!
    And now we are at 7 open spots left! (I prematurely said 7 open spots in post above... my optimistic side saw what it wanted to see.)

    While these last 7 spots are slowly filling, I have decided to add a new aspect to this 'it's a game'... since the waiting is the hardest part. Its still in planning stages and thinking it will be only for those currently signed up. Still deciding on the details. More to come.

    It's supposed to be fun... And make the waiting easier.

    We are a pair... Perhaps our DPF usernames should be change to:
    The Enabler
    and
    Ms. Cruel
    ;)

    Your spot selection is noted and appreciated by myself (and I am going to say also the other players.) Thank you!

    Only five spots to go. So close!

    :mickey2:Announcing 'It's a Pin Game' Bonus. :tigger:
    I have posted detailed rules in post #6. Hopefully I covered all the bases, but if I did miss something or you have questions, please let me know.

    Summary of rules (from post #6):
    - This bonus is for players currently assigned a spot in the game. (See rules for definition of current player.)
    - Players will select the pin bonus to be randomized from available options only (ie, A-G see post #6)
    - Moderator will run a randomizer for current players and player with spot randomized to number 1 will be awarded the bonus pin/pin set with some caveats as noted in rules (see post #6).

    Let's do it!
    I am officially asking @Ksnuggles to run a randomizer to award one pin/pin set (A-G) tomorrow (11Apr2018) for all players of record as of 11:59 today (10Apr2018).

    Which pin/pin set is decided by current players (see rules in post #6): but basically current players only, please post your vote for which pin/pin set (A-G) will be awarded tomorrow.
