I have also created a permanent page on the blog [url=http://www.caliconblog.net/p/fanimecon-twitter-giveaway.html]here[/url], and it will contain these same rules as well as pictures of the winners. You can also find the same thread on the FanimeCon Forums [url=http://forums.fanime.com/index.php/topic,14103.0.html]here[/url].

Plz note: this "contest" is in no way afflicted with any FanimeCon event. This is being done on my own time with my own money.

Welcome to the 2nd annual "Find Me @ FanimeCon and Win Free Stuff!" game!
The game is simple: you find me at FanimeCon, you win a prize!

This is how you play:
1) Go to either of my [url=http://twitter.com/heeroyuy135]Twitter[/url] [url=http://twitter.com/caconblog]pages[/url] and follow! Don't have a Twitter account? MAKE ONE!
2) During FanimeCon, I will be Tweeting at the con as part of my coverage alongside my blog. I will also be announcing times in which to find me. I might Tweet "First one to find me in the Dealers Room wins a CD" then follow up with a clue like "Pizza Butt" (meaning I'm at the Bandai booth). If you're the first one to find me, you win!
3) Prizes may vary, from plushies to CDs to quarters already inside an arcade machine. You never know what I might pull out.
4a) Friday's giveaway is restricted to people who did not win last year, meaning if you won last year you're not eligible for that day's giveaway.
4b) Saturday and Sunday is a free-for-all like last year.
4c) I will not be doing the contest on Monday as me and Ryan will be raffling off prizes at the SoCal Host Club Info Panel.
5) ???
6) Profit!
7) Enjoy the game!

Wow...I had no winners over the weekend. I had dual prizes to give away on Friday and that rolled over to Saturday, so eventually I just gave it away to someone who could identify me in cosplay while waiting for the FLOW autographs.

I was very surprised that I had no winners over the weekend despite having success in 2009, my first year. I tried to give out clues on Friday, but after no one else showed up then I just told everyone who I was cosplaying and have them find me for the rest of the weekend, and even then no one found me.

What went wrong? What I can do to improve this?

I talked about doing this at wondercon and I think totally doing this at the next con I go to. I think I'll just stand still in crowds too.

As for now being to win, well, I wasn't able to play. I cant follow someone on twitter cause, well, I dont keep my phone on me while in the con, not enough pockets, not going to hear it anyway, and it's not a smart phone and I was there sunday.

It's a neat idea, keep it up and I'm sure people will too. Maybe get a 2nd person to like, have a sign advertising the contest at the con. So, walking in people can be aware and play. have a separate prize for it even, since you seem generous enough to have more than 1 to begin with.

Its a very neat idea. Sorry I didn't know about this before the con but I will definitely try next year. Please don't let this year discourage you.
