i won a first edition holmes basic set ! :w00t:

  zenopus archives blog held a contest to give away a holmes basic boxed set....and i won! the old saw 'you don't win unless you play...' is true :D. very excited about this and can't wait to unbox it and give it a whirl. once i get it im going to try to do a series of sketches based around the artwork and illos inside the box.
blogpost about the giveaway is here holmes for the holidays 2 contest .

for anyone curious i won on a roll of 22(there were 30 contestants)...
yeah i had to read the formula too :D....this is from zenopus (scroll down) explanation of the die roll ^^;..:D  :
'Update #3, 12/19: Tonight I had my trusty assistant make the roll. To generate a random 1-30, we used the method suggested in the back of the Holmes rulebook: "If 1-30 or 1-36 aredesired, read the 6-sider with the 20- or 12-sided die, with 1-2 equalling no addition, 3-4 adding 10, and 5-6 adding 20" (pg 45 of the 2nd printing). Note that the original white 20-sided die from the Holmes set is numbered 0-9 twice. And here is the result:'
