Did you think we'd run a donation drive without fabulous prizes? We deeply appreciate the support from the community and our favorite way of saying thanks is by enhancing your gaming lives with some cool swag. We're tweaking our process just a little bit this year. The prize draw will be during International Goodjer Day on October 15th. To be entered into the draw, you just need to donate $10 or more to the site or attend an Internation Goodjer Day event. Easy! For details on how to donate hit this post. If you're attending an Internatonal Goodjer Day event, let the organizer know and we'll have them send us a final attendee list.
So what kind of prizes we talking here? How about a new console? A handheld perhaps? How about a custom, one-of-a-kind golden forum icon?
We also have a very cool set of signed Bioshock: Infinite propaganda posters donated from our good friends at Irrational Games!
Read on for full prize details!
How to Win :
As always we offer multiple entries for those of you who donate a little more.
The scale for this year is the same as previous years.
Donations/Entries into the drawing (U.S. funds)
$10 - $24 = 1 entry
$25 - $49 = 2 entries
$50 - $74 = 3 entries
$75 and up = 4 entries
Only one prize per person! Winners will be drawn on International Goodjer Day on October 15th. If you're attending a gathering on the 15th, make sure you RSVP in the respective forum thread! We'll post more detail about where events are taking place soon.
If you're not from North America, you can still win the grand prize provided you have a local Amazon.com site we can order from!
Staff of GWJ and their families are not eligible to win (staff of GWJ being defined as anyone who has ever had posting privileges to the front page).
All prizes are new and in original packaging.
Your choice of a Nintendo 3DS, Sony PSP Vita Pre-Order or a 32GB iPod Touch
Signed Bioshock: Infinite Propaganda Posters
Signed by the team at Irrational Games!
All posters signed by Nate Wells, Ken Levine and Shawn Robertson. Jorge Lacera and Michael Swiderek also signed their respective works as the artists. We have two of the Songbird posters and one each of the other two.
Custom Forum Golden Icon
That's right! For the first time ever, you can win a custom, one of a kind golden forum icon to appear underneath your forum name. The lovely and talented Elysia will make one just for you. Whatever you want! It just needs to fit our usual size/shape guidelines.
The GWJ Staff Steam Shopping Spree
Choose this prize and the GWJ staff will combine forces and buy you a grab bag of awesome games from Steam based on what would be a great fit into your existing Steam library. We'll record the process on the Conference Call too!
Magic The Gathering 2012 Intro Packs & Boosters
Want to see what all the fuss is about? Wizards of The Coast have graciously donated Magic 2012 Intro Packs and Boosters! We have 3 bundles of 5 Intro Packs and 5 Boosters each up for grabs. There's a reason Magic is still popular after such a long time. Julian Murdoch owns $178,000 in online Magic cards. True fact. True.
Thanks for all the support and good luck!
