    Two more winning entries need to be confirmed by their posters providing their name, postal address and phone number to me within a set time period. As I want to announce the complete winners list from the outset, it could be a bit yet.

    That said, those who confirmed said data with me in the first round -- that is, those not affected by the technical difficulties I alluded to a couple of weeks ago -- had their prizes mailed last week by Firaxis.

    No, not at this time. I'm hopeful that by this time next week, I will have the data I need to confirm the two final winners and can publicly disclose the list at last.

    Last week, Firaxis was waiting for a resupply of Civilization IV: Complete copies in order to finish sending out the unsigned copies to the confirmed winners in this contest. They anticipated that they would receive them if not by now, then by the end of this week.

    Part of the most recent delay in the release of the winners list has been the result of a particularly busy time for me personally (see this post for related details). For this very reason I had hoped before that came about that the winners list would have been finalized. I appreciate everyone's continued patience.

    I am pleased to report that I have contacted the next two potential winners in this contest, in the hopes that by the end of this coming weekend the list will be finalized and released publicly.

    I am grateful to all who have been following this thread and for your understanding as to the factors for the considerable delay (to summarize, primarily lack of timely confirmation from some previous potential winners and secondarily demands in my personal life).

    Any news? Could you at least confirm that games were or were not already sent to winners, please? ;) I understand that even for goods from amazon.com it can take about a month to arrive at my province of the world, but it's entirely another feeling if I know that it's already sent and on it's way :)

    Thanks. :)

    For the winners, some have received their prizes and others not still unfortunately. Firaxis is still waiting for another shipment of C4C copies in order to complete sending them out.

    On a related front, I'm having to choose the last two final winners again as no confirmation was received from the next pair... (*Sigh*)

    Welcome. :)

    The next two potential winners have been chosen and contacted; they have until next Wednesday in order to confirm their placing.

    Hw do you contact them? By mailing them here at CVC or by mailing the address they have supplied? They may have changed the latter.

    Only one of them has done so; as such, there is still one placement to confirm. On a related front, Firaxis is still waiting for further arrivals of Civilization IV: Complete copies in order for all confirmed winners of non-signed copies to receive this prize. All winners who have garnered signed copy prizes should have received them by now.

    That all said, given how much time has past I am going to disclose the winners of the signed copies given that they are all confirmed. They have been for some time as noted before, and I wish I had thought of disclosing that portion of the winners list before now. In any event, I will note them in a separate post momentarily.

    :(

    I followed up with Firaxis almost a couple of weeks ago with a status update, but have not heard back -- I will check-in this week. I expect that they are still waiting to receive additional copies themselves to in turn send out, meaning no update to give.
