Christmas came early this year

Category Contests

So last week, I was just puttering around, doing my thing, getting ready for the long weekend. I got an email, as I so often do, from a company who wanted to know if I maybe wanted to give away some of their stuff, and I checked it out and said sure, and then… a very large box was dropped off at my house by FedEx. And my eyes popped out of my head when I opened it.

See, the folks in question represent Gamewright Games, and what I received was a veritable cornucopia of their game offerings. I’ve got Boochie and I’ve got Slamwich and I’ve got Go Nuts! and I’ve got Tiki Topple and I’ve got Sleeping Queens and—listen, just take my word for it, I have a lot of awesome games here.

So here’s what we’re going to do. I have way too many games to have people pick, so let’s just say this: Six lucky Want Not readers will receive at least one Gamewright game each. But… you might get two. Or three! I am just not telling you which games or how many. Because this way is more fun, and also it will depend somewhat on the phase of the moon and how many items fit into each box. Sort of.

To enter for a chance to win one or more of these fabulously fun family games (ooh! alliterative!), simply leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern time, noon Pacific time on Sunday, July 13th, 2008. One comment/entry per person, valid email required. Winners will be chosen by random number generation and shipping strategy, and then next week I will announce who won what.

You may have noticed that I am running this contest for a lot longer than I usually do, and that’s partly because there are so many prizes and partly because I’m experimenting. We’ll see how it goes. Regardless, you have nearly a week to get your entry in, but why wait? Go! Now!

My name is Aisha, and I start college in EXACTLY two months (please excuse me while I go rock in a corner and mutter about how the dining hall food will not match up to my mother’s and how a wok makes a much more FUN self-protection item than a container of mace. It’s happening on a regular basis now – do not be concerned).

    please let me be one of the winners.

  647. We have to make 2 trips due to daughters wedding August 23, and birth of grandson sept 7th. Each trip is over 2500 miles round trip. We just made the trip for son in laws surgery.
    Since we now have our 2 children and our 2 grandchildren taking the trip this next time it will be a long trip so we sure could use some games that can be played in the car to help stop the boredom as they get tired of playing video games and watching movies. We could even use games for the home as they need to stay entertained while visiting family.
