    We have just selected the winners of the Old World random draw and competition.
    We were very happy that we got 108 entries from the forum and Twitter, and that we could select among the ones whom we liked best!

    The winner for the best entry is @Deggial
    I liked the very personal note of this entry, and 2 out of 3 other members of the jury agreed there too.
    We also liked a couple of other entries, mostly the longer ones e.g. by Angst or Ghengis Cat, but we had to select one one, sorry :(.




    The winner for the best joke entry is @Dadais
    Here we also liked the effort put into the entry, and to give this very special civ also a civ-spin.
    The other entries, like The Shire from PiR, or the beans-and-water-exporting Englishman from North Korean Liberation Front on Twitter were also liked, but again we could only select one :(.



    The 3 winners of the random draw are @8housesofelixir, @cairnsy44 and @Das Capitolin
    Congratulations to all the winners. We will send you the key via PM.
    Thanks everyone for contributing :hatsoff:, it was nice to see what the community here thinks.

    Old World is currently available in the Epic Store, and will be availabe from May 19 also at GOG and Steam.

    Oh, we are civ-fanatics ;). Soren and Tim (from Hooded Horse, the publisher) asked us if we wanted to do something and gave us the keys, but we have no official connection or anything with them.
    And as the true civ-fanatics we are, we'd obviously include the other civ-fanatics ;).

    Awesome. Since Civ 6 is starting to age, I look forward to exploring what The Old World has to offer. Even better if it can be modded. :egypt:

    Congrats to the winners! :D

    I personally am happy @Deggial entry on Egypt was chosen. I really liked the story behind it, and how personal their choice was. I could totally relate, having a similar goal when I finally get to Egypt.

    Thanks guys :).
    I should again mention that we had this little competition because Soren actually asked Thunderfall, and Tim from Hooded Horse organized all the rest. So a thanks to them too :).
