    This reward is another one-of-a-kind. Stefan Pokorny of Dwarven Forge (who appears in our film) is offering, in his words, "A day of gaming and a night of carousing in NYC". That's right, you and 5 of your friends get to hang out with the man himself. Play his game and party with the king. Plus, he's giving everyone a Dwarven Forge Set (valued at $150) to take home with them. That alone is worth the trip to NYC. Check out his videos at http://www.dwarvenforge.com/ to find out what you're in for. Also, you get 6 copies of the 2-Disc, Limited Edition DVD/Blu-Ray of the Documentary. Snatch this up fast, otherwise we will. (Travel and hotel are not included)
