And the Winners Are...

Thanks to all who played our Space Invaders game.  Almost all the aliens were apprehended and our web site is once again under our control.  The alien ship, however, was never found, so a couple of escapees may be back to wreck havoc another day.

Our champion Brigader in Black and alien apprehender extraordinaire is Frances Pauli who managed to feret out a dozen of the alien beasties hiding amongst the forums, info pages, application and even photo descriptions.  Great job, Frances!

Your prize:  A choice of the Avatar DVD or Cameron's Avatar, a 60 Minutes documentary with the film maker  (or the second places prizes, if you'd prefer one of those.)

For Runner-Up Champion Brigaders in Black we have a tie between Donna S. Frelick and Anna McLain, both who found half a dozen of the sneaky species.

Your prizes:  A choice of Katherine Allred's Alien Affairs books--Close Encounters and just released Close Contact OR a SFR Brigade mug OR your choice of any item in the new SFR Brigade store.

Please email me your prize choice and snail mail address to Lgreen2162 (at) aol (dot) com.

Congratulations!!!

The camouflaged ship:  The only clue was from an eye witness who described it as“something like a weird stick dragonfly."  The ship was expertly camouflaged on the Members Only page in the midst of a string of Zazzle code, ala...(ship is highlighted in red)

  1. Ahh, now I understand what I should have been looking for - having never played a game of this sort, and admitting to being confused by your instructions (which were clear enough now that I see what I should have been looking for), I didn't play.

    Won't happen next time! :-)

    Congrats to the winners!
