It's hard to believe that this week signifies ten years that GameBanshee has been online providing news, reviews, previews, interviews, editorials, and in-depth coverage for role-playing games. Because it's such a monumental event for us (have we really been here that long?), we wanted to make sure that it was a monumental event for the viewers that have helped keep us online for the past decade, too. So, after rounding up a list of many of the companies we've worked with over the years, I sent off an email to see if any of them would be interested in helping us celebrate with a week-long giveaway.
To put it lightly, the response was overwhelming. Nearly every company I contacted wanted to contribute to the celebration, the result of which is an enormous stockpile of RPG-related swag awaiting a new home and a slew of digital download keys ready to be redeemed for a variety of games.
So here's the deal. For the next five days, there will be one major giveaway news article (like this one) with a list of all the goodies up for grabs. If you'd like to throw your hat into the ring for a chance to have one of the listed items sent directly to your door or email inbox (depending on what you win), simply post a comment under the news article. That's it. Next week, I'll be going through all five news articles and will randomly choose the winners.
Of course, we have to have a few rules:
- You must have a valid email address attached to your GameBanshee account. Without one, I cannot contact you with the information you need to receive your swag. - Only one comment per news article per IP address will be accepted. Members who post more than one comment under a single news article with the same or alternate usernames will not be eligible for any of the items. You can technically have a total of five chances to win if you post a single comment under each of the five giveaway news articles. - This promotion is available to all members worldwide, as long as your shipping address is valid with the USPS, UPS, and FedEx.
With that out of the way, here's a list of everything that we'll be giving away for our DAY ONE promotion only:
