This week’s Drop is on the lighter side: we announce the winners of the Peace Talks Prediction Bingo, and we share some great new artwork you may not have seen. Check it out!
Peace Talks is here, and Battle Ground is less than 50 days away! Support your favorite local independent bookstore, or support this website by ordering your copy through the Jim-Butcher.com Store.
This week, we crown the Prize Prognosticators our Peace Talks Prediction Bingo Challenge! Massive thanks to Andrea Gonzales, Skye Starr, Mandie Lyons, Craig Page, and Jordan Walker Key for helping score all the cards.
First, we want to give several Honorable Mentions:
- Honorable Mentions for Humor: @ItsYoshi304, @DrewSnyder, @CeciliaEJohnson, @superpotroast, and @WilliamTrial1.
- Honorable Mention for Most Out-Of-Left-Field Correct Prediction: @Darsstar, who predicted “New One-Eyed Character.” Epic extra bonus points for coining the ship name “Tooth Tooth” for Toot/Lacuna.
- Honorable Mention for Technical Wizardry: @Lumbernock’s Bingo Card Generator.
- And great thanks and admiration to The Nerdy Narrative, whose Prediction Bingo vlog post inspired this contest!
We were supposed to have one more awesome thing to talk about this week, but it had to be shifted back a week. So how about some fun fanart you may not have seen?
“Hellfire Harry” is by Tyler Walpole, illustrator of the Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game, which is now available on iOS/Mac, Android, Steam, and the Switch for all your social distancing needs.
