We are long overdue for a contest

By Mir
January 17, 2008

Hi! Remember when I used to give stuff away all the time? Wasn’t that fun?

I have one word for you: Neopets.

Actually… I lied. I always have more than one word. Try to contain your shock.

I have friends in high place, and this time they were kind enough to send along some goodies which I will be giving away to one lucky Want Not reader. What I have here is a copy of Codestone Quest (a PC CD-ROM game rated “E” for Everyone) and a 1,000 Neocash card, good towards anything you can buy in the NC Mall, which I gather would be useful if your child (or you—hey, I don’t judge) plays Neopets online.

In addition, they’re currently running a weekly giveaway through the end of the month, so you might want to check that out.

But if you want to win the above-mentioned swag, leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, January 18th, 2008. I’ll select a winner randomly, and then you will receive your own little slice of Neopet mania. Ready? Go!
