    doesnt the process of making cheese essentially consists of waiting for milk to perish

    Some kinds of cheese wouldn't keep if shipped around the world but others will. I have a piece of 5 year old Gouda in my fridge right now actually, it's hella strong.

    Just saying that some of the people in this thread are almost certainly not voting for what they say they are voting for...

    I, however, always tell the truth. And I am voting for the Crackers and Spread. Don't vote for that!

    yes, but the cheese itself is perishable ( at least some of them, because they are susceptible to bad humus ). I would not trust that cheddar cheese, mainly because if it stays too long outside of the fridge it's gg for it :D

    At the end of Round 4 the results are;

    Show Hide
    4 Magic Cards - Captain Bagman, Earthworm, Engineer Pikachu, Wild Eep
    3 Crackers and Spread - shade, Umbreon Dan, UncleSam
    3 Cheese and Sausage - Aura Guardian, Fatecrashers, kingofkongs
    2 Mystery Prize - Orcinus Duo, ssbbm


    Even though not all 4 players had any use for them, people still piled onto the magic cards. They were struck by Lightning Bolt, which is more cost efficient than anything I'm doing with this game.

    Only two players chose the Mystery Prize, and they are rewarded with the second greatest movie ever made.

    [​IMG]

    This sleeper cult classic was a masterpiece of visual cinema that predated similar movies like Avatar. Taking excellent source material and the Wachowski knack for climax, Speed Racer is a love letter to the TV show that originally inspired the brothers to go into film making. While I make it a point to ensure that everyone sees this movie, either Orcinus Duo or ssbbm might walk away with it AND the first DVD portion of the original series, as well as some memorabilia.

    Show Hide
    Aura Guardian
    Fatecrashers
    kingofkongs
    Orcinus Duo
    shade
    ssbbm
    Umbreon Dan
    Unclesam


    Round 5

    Ok, enough with the fucking food (sort of). Now we are getting serious. This is the semifinals, and the prizes are better than ever.

    Prize #1 A Game of Thrones

    [​IMG]

    On the subject of things that I would recommend to anyone, maybe some of you have noticed the Game of Thrones thread in a forum. Maybe some of you watch the show. I'm sure even owners of the book have friends they could share it with. This prize is one softcover copy of the original Game of Thrones. It is easily one of the best book series ever written, and even if you don't know about it you've felt its effect on the fantasy genre and rpg video games.

    Prize #2 Mint Batman Action Figures

    [​IMG]

    So I just came into some 20 year old Batman figures ten minutes ago. Which is good, because Lightwolf wanted me to have Beanie Babies as a prize and I didn't have a better idea. This set includes Batman, Catwoman, and the Penguin. I don't know how valuable they are, I'm sure they really aren't very valuable but who knows?!

    Prize #3 Cash Money

    [​IMG]
    What you see is what you get. It is boring. It has a precise value ($15). But you can get whatever you want with it. Or you can pose with it and take a picture, then blingee that picture.

    Prize #4 Any One Previous Prize

    [​IMG]

    Nevermind, this is the best prize so far. With this prize you can choose ANY that you haven't picked so far. Any pick is still considered Prize #4 for popularity. Also if you pick Speed Racer, you only get the movie as you didn't have the balls to choose the mystery door.

    Deadline is in 48 hours. Get me your choices.

    That can be construed as meaning all picks, even 1-3 in this round count as number 4... which means:

    Round 5 is over! And the results;

    Show Hide
    2 A Game of Thrones - kingofkongs, UncleSam
    2 Batman Figures - shade, Umbreon Dan
    1 Cash Money - Orcinus Duo
    3 Any Previous Prize - Aura Guardian, Fatecrashers, ssbbm


    Sadly, the pick your own prize option has won. In particular, Aura Guardian wanted the crunch bar. With that said only 5 players are left, taking us into the final round!

    Show Hide
    kingofkongs
    Orcinus Duo
    shade
    Umbreon Dan
    UncleSam


    Final Round!

    In this round the prizes are even better, but what is the tiebreaker you ask? At the bottom there is a 10 question personality test. It is designed to determine how popular you are. The least popular person to pick one of the least popular prizes will take their entire Gift Basket home sometime next week.


    Prize #1 Board Game

    [​IMG]

    Board games are fun for the whole family (or alcohol fueled party), and more importantly unlike some options they are 100% region free. This prize is any board game $20 or less, as determined by my local Toys R' Us.

    Prize #2 Video Game

    [​IMG]

    The most outrageously expensive form of media, like the above this will net you any $20 video game from my local Best Buy. HOWEVER. Keep in mind that only the PS3 region free. If you live in Europe, this will limit your options (but I mean why aren't you playing on a PS3?).

    Prize #3 League of Legends Card

    [​IMG]

    This is the prize that many players have waited all game for. They might all be dead but the good news is that League of Legends is totally free to play. This prize is a card worth $20 dollars of LoL goodies. Whether you already play the game or just need incentive to, here ya go.

    Personality Test
