There are no specific numbers that will be released, but assuming lottery odds is probably a safe bet.

I couldn't find the information I needed to get in on the lottery on the GenCon site. A person posted sending an email to vig@gencon.com with ID# and Name. If this was I correct I did so and hopefully it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about purchasing a VIG for a spouse and a Companion for themselves? I thought it would be a great surprise, without getting her hopes up, in case I don't get it. I do have her in my F&F, so I can purchase for her. I asked as much in my 'entry' but was afraid it won't get answered due to it being an entry. Thanks all!

Thanks for your interest in the VIG program. We are happy to add your name to the interested-list for this program.

We will need a Gen Con account email and your ID number (next to your name on your account) to enter you into the drawing. We will need this information by 11:59 PST today January 11.

We will need individual emails from all interested parties. We will contact randomly-selected parties on January 12.

You can expect to hear back from us via email. Once you have been contacted, you will need to confirm your continued interest at that time. If you are no longer interested in the program please let us know as soon as possible.Additional information: http://www.gencon.com/attend/vig

The person entered into the random selection process must have an active Gen Con account, and the badge must be purchased on that account.

Mike,

Has the drawing taken place yet? If so, can you let us know how many VIG badges were up for grabs this year?

Hmm... I didn't get an email about the drawing; so thats a concern. I sent it on on the 9th, so I should have made the cutoff. I'll keep watching; where did it come from?

I'm Badge number 538; so I'd like it by badge number as well...:)

I didn't get an email about the drawing either.  I send mine in on Jan 7th.    

I'll be stalking the forums and checking my email all day.

Anyways; if we don't win this, there is always Powerball!  :)

Badge 108! David Campbell - watch waht you wish for! LOL

I didn't get an e-mail this morning, dontadow. Though I did send my name in for a chance at the lottery. If either one of us gets it, let's chat about companion badges. ;)

I had the same thought. Though it's possible that the email response was changed recently to include the exact date.

Just playing devels advocate but you guys understand that there are 250 VIGs and only 350 companion badges that are first come first serve when badge registration goes live?  Its next year that the changes go into effect and untill then there is no guarantee that you will get a companion badge?

Dude. We don't even have VIG badges yet. We're just chatting. Chances are slim we even get that far.

Was just thinking of last two years were new VIGs were very disappointed after they won to find out that "up to 3 companion badges" is very different from you getting companion badges.  Last year they were all sold out before the drawing and Sindee was sad her boy friend couldnt be one (sorry i couldnt spell the f word for someone you are engaged too)

Glory while you are only chatting are you sure all the others are or are they sserious about if they dont win that they want to be a companion?  In prior years all the disappointment over companions was limeted to the VIG forumn and not general knowadge.

and like i said i was being devils advocate

That could be why they are doing it sooner this year. I'd be happy with just the VIG badge; a companion pass would be icing on the cake.

I also did not get an email, but had submitted all of my info Friday.  I hope I was at least added to the lottery list - can't win if you don't play!

Some clarification here.
I have not initiated the random selection process yet. If you are on the list I will update you about this via email later today.
You are on the list if you got me the pertinent information by yesterday.

Companion Badges go on sale on January 22. This is the same time as the New VIG's will be able to buy a badge so all VIG's will have an opportunity to get them.
