Thank you for all the suggestions--here and on our Facebook page--for a name for Hoard's crone character. Two of us judges put the same name on our shortlists, so we are pleased to announce that winning name is Granny Fragwump

L-R: Esmeralda, Granny Fragwump, Rowan, Captain Percival Hogarth, Sir Guy, Vera. Not pictured: Raynard Gaspar (out with man 'flu!)

Congratulations to Cheryl Howard of Melbourne for that suggestion. Cheryl is well-qualified to name a nan, as she is a grandmother seven times over! She tells us, "it took me about 3 seconds to think of it as it just popped into my head when I looked at the picture."

For her grand prize, unsurprisingly, she's chosen to receive a copy of Cheeky Parrot's Granny Wars game. I'm sure she'll enjoy playing it with her grandchildren. The three runner-up winners are Katherine Boag, Rob Digby, and Rupert Morrish; I'm looking forward to making JibJab holiday movies for them.

If you're ever in the mood for hoarding treasure and find yourself on your own, try this solo variant by our backer, PlanBee, and while you're on BoardGameGeek, remember to stop by Hoard's entry to add your rating and comments--they will help retailers decide to stock the game.

We'll have more news next year but for now, we wish you all a Merry Christmas if you celebrate it and a peaceful and relaxing end of year, with lots of time for board gaming with friends.

      Wow!!!!!! I can't believe I actually won. How awesome is that?
      I told my family and they all thought it hilarious. Can't wait to get my Granny Wars in the new Year.
      Thank you Cheeky Parrots ... I'll definitely be looking forward to your new games in the future.
