CONTESTOID: It's easy! Super fun happy win now!

Hello there D-toiders. This is an update on the contest that was posted on Sunday. New text is in bold.

I am Spykron and I assist with the managing of a GameStop in Massachusetts. We have A LOT of random pre-order swag lying around in my store and I thought "why not give it away to you guys." Because we don't want it anymore.

So heres the deal. I will be visiting fellow d-toider ShadokatRegn next week (13th-18th) in the mile high city of Denver. We have been friends for years now and I am proud to have brought her strength into His Robots Army.

Anyway, neither of us has much money, so we are looking for fun, creative ideas of things to do. You submit the ideas, we do the things and take a picture, the 3 ideas that we had the most fun with will win!


How to enter:
1. Open to all d-toid members. Must have a mailing address to get your prize.
1b. I'm really sorry, but I have to limit this to Canada/USA. I hate to exclude members of the community, but I really can't afford 100 bucks to ship over seas. :-( super sad face...
2. Just post your idea in the comments section. There will be more than one blog posting of this contest. Shadokat will probably repost under her name as well. You only need to submit your idea once on one blog, but if you want to post multiple times, go ahead. Feel special!
3. Submit as many ideas as you want.

Rules on submissions:
1. Ideas must cost nothing, be legal, and safe.
2. Nothing sexual guys, plz, srysly.
3. Be fucking creative. Creativity wins it.
4. We dont have time or money to travel far, so ideas must take place in the city. Or in a place you would expect a big city like Denver to have. (Malls, McDonalds, etc..)
4b. Also, don't get too elaborate. We're kind of lazy. It shouldn't take longer than 15-20 minutes to do your idea.
5. Ideas must produce an Epic picture. The final picture of the event is something you should keep in mind. (I have a tripod and a timer, if that helps)
6. The ideas don't have to be something we need to leave the house for.
7. Also, creativity.

Jan 16th 2008

1. Spykron and Shadokat reserve the right to ignore/preform as many ideas as they choose.

About Spykronone of us since 12:06 PM on 07.01.2007

I'm 25 and I like video games!!! I'm a cheap-ass about it so I rarely have the newest stuff.

I own NES, SNES, Dreamcast, GBA, GBA Micro, GBA SP, DS lite, PSP slim, PS2, and a 360 Elite.

Also a PC of course, and the best game ever is Starcraft.

I work at Gamestop in Westfield, MA. Most Gamestops arn't cool. Mine is alright.

Other than games, I like photography, graphic design and hiking/camping. My hobbies are expensive :-(

If you go to my website, I will make happy at you!
