This summer, RPGamer tried to stump our readers by asking about assorted information of past Konami games. For those who knew all, we offered up the latest Konami RPG, Ephemeral Fantasia. Now, at long last, we will give you the winners, as well as the answers.
We received well over 100 entries, but very few of those actually had every question correct. There were so many different answers, that we decided to double check all of ours. Better safe than sorry, right? Finally, we've contacted all the winners, and now we're ready for the those results.
Winners of Ephemeral Fantasia, in no particular order:
- Sharon Bowers, New Jersey
- Gregory Adam McVey, Massachusetts
- Anthony Lieu, New Jersey
We would like to thank Konami for the prizes, as well as taking the time to verify our answers. Speaking of answers, here they are:
