As you may recall, last February Mike Resnick and I announced a contest "of sorts" to create the rules to the game Bilsang, apparently a popular pastime in Mike's galaxy of the 4870s A.D.
Bilsang - which is described as being a simple game that anyone can learn in a few minutes and which requires only a flat surface and twenty identical pieces, and is harder than it looks - is introduced in Mike's upcoming novel Starship: Pirate.
Now, I'm happy to announce that Resnick-fan and Dragon Magazine contributor Alex Wilson has won the contest, as judged last week by Mike and myself. Alex's Bilsang rules will appear in the appedices of Starship: Pirate when the book appears this coming December.
Thanks to everyone who sent in entrees, and a big congratulations Alex.
