    I could not sleep for over two weeks after watching it the first time. After walking out of the theatre I walked through the whole city while trying to manage overwhelming emotions; was the biggest impact a film ever had.
    Thoughts like "How is it possible that a human can become such a monster?" (refering to the role of Ralph Fiennes) and knowing that there are still people out there - especially in the country I live in - who refuse to simply acknowledge all the madness and cruelty.
    Even nowadays I feel guilty to live in a country that seems to have difficulties to take a fearless and responsible look on its darkest hours. We should know it better.

    OK OK....before next year's version, I would be willing to host a few "box office prediction" workshops (for a small fee of course)….

    I'm still enjoying my vacation from the box office figuring out a few things with that, but it will definitely be soon, probably. I think.
    So uhh, let me get back to you on that!
    :D

    I hath returned from my [3 month] vacation...

    And, I come bearing GIFTS. Gather round, children!
    :D

    First, another congrats to our 2018 winners, @Lock_S_Foils , @Rogues1138 , and @Pawek_13! We scrounged up a few credits and were able to reward these accomplishments with some proper prizes:

    Lando Black Series figure
    [​IMG]


    Star Wars - Storyboards of the OT

    [​IMG]

    LEGO Star Wars Solo: A Star Wars Story Han Solo’s Landspeeder 75209 Building Kit
    [​IMG]

    The top 3 got to select from a selection of prizes in order of their finish. Lock went first and took Lando, Rogues went next with the OT storyboards, and Pawek grabbed up the LEGO Solo speeder. Hope you all are enjoying your loot!

    This is a format we'll likely replicate for the upcoming game, if any of you need some extra motivation. ;)

    Oh! And you also get these:

    Now, as for the rest of us who weren't so omniscient but who are still in the running for some other cool stuff!

    First, a Marthoner Badge to anyone who stuck with us from beginning to end, give or take a couple weeks:

    @DarthSnow
    @Addi Ras
    @Lazarus Dei

    Thanks for sticking it out for the whole year! You guys rock!
    (still checking this list so apologies if I missed anyone)

    Next up, a raffle of some Cantina-based prizes, including:
    • custom signature
    • 500 credit pot
    • custom title
    • one of a kind vintage SW badge:
    2018-vintage.png

    @Addi Ras
