Nothing. It's just that you have a similar username to minimike98 and his alts, a poster from several years back that was infamous for a rather -- shall we say -- surreal writing style.

It doesn't help that several of said multis had a somethingepic98 kind of pattern to the name.

I am sure this can't possibly be Minimike98.

Yeah its me, However my spelling is still a bit off. Haven't lived on the the earth for that many years, I think you are all around your mid 20's - 30's. Sorry if i am a bit off, no offense directed. But yeah, at this moment I am currently working on GatEB puzzles, I quite the like the use of the new "Water" I have been doing else things, and when I got back to start playing in DROD I realized that their is a new game. So I said to my self what the hell, I'll get back into it. Sorry Mrimer if this post has gone a bit of Topic :)

Since we're so close to release, and it's already been two months since we started this contest, I'm planning to post the winners a few days ahead of release, and not on the actual day of release, as I indicated in first post. This decision is partially to work out logistics with the winner to receive their free copy of the game, so they're ready and available to play when it's released, without undue delay.

If you haven't submitted a guess yet, do so now!

What if you pre-ordered? If pre-ordered, could it be a pick from the prize pile instead, for I know that most of us pre-ordered TSS.

If it's not too late to put in a guess, I would like to guess:
871.

EDIT:

I thought I checked the guesses carefully enough to make sure I didn't have a repeat...

Oh well, I'll guess 873 then.

Sure, it's not too late, but martz already guessed 871 rooms. Please revise your guess.

I was going to guess the official number of the Eighth, but Jacob's too close. So, I'm going with the very nearly official number of the Eighth instead.

17,603.3 rooms.

TSS is coming out this weekend, and I'm officially closing entries for this contest now.
As part of our count, we're going to include each of the new world maps featured in TSS as a "room". This brings the total number of rooms in the game to...

*drumroll*

888

Including the maps as rooms actually changes the winner, so we'll be generous and fair, gifting an extra first place prize. One goes to the closest guess, based on counting world maps along with rooms, and the other with rooms only. Our contest winners are:


888: Lucky Luc -- 1st
875: Tamsk -- 1st (bonus prize)
873: jamesdenem -- 2nd
871: martz -- 3rd


Congratulations to the winners! Lucky Luc is lucky indeed. :)

Lucky Luc and Tamsk, you each win a free copy of TSS (or prize from the Prize Pile) and 100 rank points! Jamesdenem receives three free months of CaravelNet service and 50 rank points. Martz receives one free month of CaravelNet service and 25 rank points.

Enjoy the game, everyone! Saturday morning (USA-time) is the planned moment of release for pre-orders.
