0:) I have really missed hanging out on the website a lot. 0:)

I've had the good fortune of meeting, emailing, letter sending and trading with a lot of members on this awesome website. Some people have even sent me coins for free without even trading anything for them. Slowly, I would like to reciprocate the actions of those who have helped me. My level of appreciation is deep. So just in time for the holiday season, My Family and I have come up with a cool game to play for anyone who is interested…
Drum roll please… :wiz:

This is James, Michael's Father, I help him sometimes on this website.
Today we are at the library and we are spending a lot of time on your website here.
Mr. Canada here, wants to clarify something to anyone that will read this.

The 3 coins he has chosen to give away are from 1 country
So if you "play" just guess one country

We see one person guessed 3 countries, but only guess one country because that's where the 3 coins are from, just 1 country

So the lady or gentleman that already guessed (because Michael wanted to check before we go to see if someone guessed already) should have another go at it ;)

Pick one country folks!

I am going to give 6 coins away instead of 3, from a particular country...

So it's sort of a bad news, good news thing HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

I know a lot of you are probably wondering...
"What?! it was not Canada!!!"
HAHAHAHA!!!!
No WAY!!!
You think I would ever give any of my Canadian Coins!!!

By "second guess", I assume xblamecanadax was speaking about the ones who gave a previous guess in December, no ?
Referee for Ottoman Empire, Mamluk sultanate of Egypt and Ilkhanate.
That is correct. Every single person guessed incorrectly back in December during the first round. So everybody that took a guess in December was wrong! Now, everyone may take another guess at it up until January 14th. Also because the contest has been extended anyone that did not guess in December, they too can take a guess up until January 14th. It is my hope that as many people as possible will get to play and have a guess as possible! :wiz:. Oh yeah and it does not matter if people pick the same county or not, cause if there is that senario, then there will be a tie breaker! :8D

Also, be on the lookout for my new contest coming really soon!
