Pick an exact date that you think the Victory and Constitution will reach the Anchorage.:minis:

I'll ask Keith to let me know the date they arrive at the Anchorage..

The winner will get their choice of any SoG ship with the exception of the 4 Kickstarter or Victory & Constitution ships.

Must receive entries by Dec 23rd. And you can't pick a date used by someone else.

Extended, you will have until Thursday May 22nd to change your date, even if your date has passed

Hopefully there will be a winner this time.

If there is the same time span as with the first shipment, possibly May? But then production time could be less for just two ships.:question:

Gunner

The original release date was January, but I think we all know better.

Three contests and I still have all my ships. Even though there was a seven month spread on the picks.

Well, I did try to warn all of you: Gaming companies are infamous for their inability to achieve a given release date -- the product is either done correctly, but late; or on time but riddled with bugs; or, most often, Late and Buggy. Esp. with the Wave 2 clusterf***, there was no way on this Earth Ares was going to release them before year's end.

I guess I can wrap this up with this classic bit of video:
