People. People, I'm literally freaking crying right now. I'm supposed to be in bed right now how the heck will I be able to sleep now?!! I WON!!! I can't... I.... I have no words. I'm absolutely shocked. I'm just.... What the heck. Woah.  (I'm honestly kind of expecting to wake up in the morning and find out this was a dream, I have issues with super-realistic dreams that I don't always realize weren't real... If this post isn't here in the morning I'll know why... lol)

 Congrats to all the winners! A special congrats to @HeatherMarie, I couldn’t really miss your post XD

 

What kind of Prize did you win? (If you don’t want to announce it, no worries!)

 

I don’t have any idea if prizes can get sick and die. I would think maybe they could. So be careful…

Question for past winners- Prize eggs *are* protected from dying of sickness, right? The email and claim-page said they 'are protected from sickness', but my egg is now showing as sick, so it's probably actually 'protected from *dying* of sickness', right? 

They can get and do get sick, they just don't die, so rack up all the views & clicks you like :D.

 

Congrats to all the winners!

(Of which I am not one :P)

Thank you! And that just reminded me that it's still technically my birthday-month, which means this is the best birthday surprise ever!

I won my prize on my birthday month too! And yes, they will not die from sickness. 

 

As for gender, I influenced my silver tinsel as female because it seemed like a lot of the ones I saw were male. But in the end, it's up to you.

I'm letting mine gender naturally; if I had any really strong opinions about certain Holidays mates I might influence, but I can't exactly find a full reference for what the various prizes look like in holiday lines.

That's exactly the reason why Heart of Blue exists, to preview lineages - https://heart-of.blue/dragcave/lineage

(And to torture ourselves with impossible pairings XD)

I always forget and just end up googling "dragcave lineage tool". It is the first result when I search. Had to do that earlier today, actually... 😄

 

Also, congrats @HeatherMarie @Guillotineand all the other winners from June!

Unless it has started being able to show every possible Holiday lineage at once, that isn't the kind of tool I'm looking for.

Late-ish post but I got a bronze shimmer.

Sorry if I've missed the answer to this, but do prize winners still get to choose the codes for their babies?  I have several 5 letter codes to choose from and would love to get if I ever win one of these darlings.

No. Codes are randomized for winners now. 

 

 

ETA: Congrats, winners!

OMG I have a CB prize dragon!!! I never thought I would because my art skills stink and the first two were both very high on the "creativity required" scale.

 

When I came back to Dragon Cave this past Easter (after 4+ years away and only occasionally thinking about DC, I had a hankering for an egg search), I was thrilled to learn about the monthly raffle. Still never thought I'd win, but I've been entering diligently.

 

And now I have a beautiful cb bronze shimmer. Learned about it while I was visiting family and barely had time to put it in a hatchery and start thinking about names. Decided to name it after ancient Chinese bronze coins. "Loong" of course is a Chinese dragon, so the name translates as "bronze coin dragon" because of the circle shape of the adults.

 

I have a list of dragons to potentially breed it to. Sadly, my first pick was a hybrid AND a drake. (Kind of a good thing it's a drake and thus impossible — I've never killed off cb parents to have a faux-cb hybrid, and I certainly don't want to start a lineage where EVERY MATE would need to be orphaned that way.)

 

Thanks for the link to Heart of Blue: I'd never heard of it before! Yes, I still miss Eggs Around the World. And I see I'm rambling terribly. But I have a CB prize dragon and my squeeing was delayed, so I've built up a bit of pressure!

 

Edit:

OMG all of that and I didn't add the link: Ban-liang Loong

The bell on the top of my scroll lit up and I thought it was a trade being declined, since the dragons were still on my scroll. Clicked the bell, and I have qualified to enter the September raffle.

 

Of course, I won nothing from the August (or any other) raffle.

Another failure for me. Looks like my prize dragon is delayed another month. 🤣

I forgot to even look until I saw this thread was active again. Of course I didn't win.

Congrats to all those who did! :)

If the cookie decoration event returns this Christmas, can someone please send me any cookie with a No Win pizza marinara? I would really appreciate that. 😹 (Unless I actually win before or in December, but I wouldn't count on it.) I can also "prepare" and "deliver" any kinds of No Win delicacies served on cookies to anyone in need! 🍕 🎄

 

Also... congrats to everyone who was lucky this time!

Yesterday morning, I thought “Hmm, raffles results are today. I should check it out.”  Then…

Huh. I wasn’t expecting that.

I’m of course happy and grateful to have won and look forward to gifting my 2g shimmers and shimmerkins.

Well, I wasn't ever expecting to win any of the raffles but I was pleasantly proved wrong today when I checked my email! I now have an eastern dragon!!! And I can hatch him on my birthday!! How cool is that? 🥺 Now I need to come up with an equally special name.

That's always the hard part - might i suggest something like "Party Streamer" or "Birthday Noodle" if you want to celebrate your Birthday with its name and hatching.

 

That aside, another month of no third win for me. I just want a Gold Tinsel so I can have the set XD
