Win a Souvenir from PAX!

   0
So, I'm heading to PAX late tonight (early tomorrow, really) and am feeling generous. If you look at the attendee list you'd think just about every Dtoider is going. However, if you're one of the miserable few who was unable to make it this year, here's your chance to get something out of it.

If you post here telling me why you're not going this year you'll be entered to win a prize. What prize, you ask? I have no idea, but I'm loaded down with cash and looking to buy a ton of swag. I'll post an update from the convention sometime this weekend with details (and photos!) of what you'll be vying for, hopefully announcing the winner sometime early next week.

And not to worry, this isn't a scam or anything, I'm just really looking forward to the show and would like a spread a bit of the joy where I can.

Good luck!

EDIT 8/29/2008: 8:45 PM EST:

So, I know what I'm going to give the winner, but I'm not going to say quite yet what it is. I'm writing this from the the convention after owning some zombies in Left 4 Dead, and when I get around to taking photos and get back home, I'll post and announce the winner. Don't worry, doesn't matter where in the world you live, if you win, you'll get your prize. And in order to be fair, I wrote a quick computer program that'll randomly select the winner. Only people who have posted in this thread by 9:00 PM EST on Sunday will be eligible. Good luck!
