Hey Bill,
Just out of interest, why is it that only North American residents can win the poll prizes, or did this change and I missed it.
I could understand it when the prize was a $10 USD voucher from Renascence ink, but now I see you are offering amongst other things 4 months supporting membership and vouchers from QRF.
So are the prizes still just for US residents or can anyone get one?

I thought it changed quite a while back….

That changed long ago, anyone can win a poll prize now.

Must have missed it.
Thanks for the reply

On the internet, nobody knows you're a Somali pirate… grin

I don't think it is meant to be taken literally. He's referring to ANY purveyors of aquatic mayhem……

I'm not a Somali Pirate. I'm a Moluccan Pirate, and I resent all the publicity those Somalis are getting.
But, what can you expect when you hire the high-powered PR firms?

"Even Somali pirates?"

Well, if you win a Cavalcade gift certificate, you can use it to buy our Somali pirates!

Cavalcade Wargames

I bet pirates sit around and play wargames about pirates taking over ships and defending against navy's marines

Grand Duke Natokina Inactive Member13 May 2011 8:08 p.m. PST

I bet they play Pirateer.

Oh, and Cardinal Hawkwood, an Australian, won this week.

Hey, Bill!

Could you add a sack of doubloons to the prize options?

A small sack, of course.

Continental Air Force Inactive Member21 Nov 2011 9:39 a.m. PST

Are there even poll prizes anymore? I have seen a "Random user person please contact the editor" post since the website update.

I think Bill should re-institute both polls & prizes.

badwargamer30 Mar 2014 2:42 p.m. PST
