Beowulf himself would be the first to tell you that any contest must have a winner, and to the victor go the spoils. This contest was a hard-fought battle worthy of a Geatish hero, and Beowulf would be proud of all of you! Ultimately, though, only one warrior was selected by the masses as having the best understanding of what it is to be a hero. Congratulations, Matt!

First he killed Grendel
Then he killed Grendel's Mother
Then he took their stuff

– Matt

Matt has won himself a copy of the game as well as a gorgeous art print signed by both John Howe and Reiner Knizia! Congratulations also to our four runners-up.

Inspired by glory,
Avenging savage slaughter,
A legend is born.

– Lukas Litzsinger

Heorot stands empty,
over the whale road comes aid -
bold heros draw near

– Jake B.

Among my people
I am the foremost of all
Remember my name

– Magnus Mårtensson

Open wide, word-hoard -
Wake fame of that Hero whose
Heart burst in the fire.

– Angelee Sailer Anderson

Our runners-up received signed art prints. Thanks to everyone who entered, everyone who voted, and everyone who honors the memory of that greatest of heroes, Beowulf!
