Matlockery Contest! Win an Xbox 360 and Frontlines: Fuel of War from THQ & Dtoid photo
Matlockery Contest! Win an Xbox 360 and Frontlines: Fuel of War from THQ & Dtoid
by Niero Gonzalez

What the hell is the Olduvai Theory and, more importantly, who founded it? Beats me, but I bet you'd like to know because the right answer could score you a free game, an Xbox 360 Premium console, or some spiffy swag. This month Destructoid is sponsored by THQ's Frontlines: Fuel of War, a military FPS war between the Red Star Alliance and the Western Coalition (Remember the Reagan years? Use your imagination!) You can check out screenshots and learn more on the official site.

How to win!

The mission is to complete our cryptic scavenger hunt before February 25 for your chance to win.  The answers and clues are somewhere on the internet. I will reveal the location of the clue next week, but until then the only thing I can say is "Wayne Andrew's blog". That's it!  When you figure out the answer to the founder question plug it in www.exeoinc.com to get a virtual raffle ticket for the grand prize. If you can't figure it out, don't worry -- I'll have a less useless clue for you next week. Good luck!

Legal blah blah

Odds of winning are based on how many Dtoiders' register. This is an exclusive contest just for our readers, so your odds are pretty good -- just register with the same email address registered in your Dtoid profile to prevent duplicate entries. Time travel is impossible with our current technology. A can of soda can contain about 200 calories, which is about 1/4 of the calories found in a Whopper, hence your epic double chin. Contest is restricted to Canadian and US residents only as prizes will be shipped directly from our sponsor. Destructoid employees, family, and intelligent pets are not eligible. Void where prohibited. God save the dolphins.

[Update: Do to some weird technically issues, we're going to give you the answer to question number 6! The answer is invoice number: 5785761234. YAY TECHNOLOGY!]
