I haven’t really done a heads-up post of this kind in a while. I did try to share fun giveaways and competition on my Facebook page and my Twitter account as they came up (and I usually enter them). Unfortunately, my Facebook page still appears to be bugged. I cannot see my news-stream and, as a consequence, cannot really share stuff from other sites or people unless I discover them by a non-Facebook way (which kinda defeats the purpose). I hope Facebook gets it fixed soon.
Anyhow, here’s three great, fun competitions that you should definitely consider entering!
#1 – Arena Rex pre-Kickstarter Aquila Giveaway
This one is going to be big. I can feel it. March 15th (+/- a day or so), Arena Rex is going to kickstart their Gladiator combat skirmish game, along with a set of 35mm resin miniatures. You can read all about it on their site, including art-works, rules-previews, and more.
Most importantly, you can enter their Aquila Giveaway for a chance to get the iconic Aquila Miniature (see above) ahead of even the Kickstarter-loot. All you need to do is juice up their social network on Facebook, Twitter, or join their Newsletter.
#2 – Mantic’s Loka Hippo Knight Naming Competition
Mantic Games Kickstarters tend to come with a naming competition. I am not sure if they had one for Kings of War. I am sure they did have one for DreadBall, mainly because I won it (I know, I brag about it too much). Anyhow, with Alessio Cavatore’s Loka up on Kickstarter, they are asking you the gamer-community to name the Kickstarter-exclusive
Hippo River Horse Knight.
Head over to Mantic’s blog and give them idea for a name for a chance to win the model for free!
#3 – Hitting on 3s’ Warhammer 40K Flyer Competition
If you’re less into new games, and looking for a traditional Warhammer 40K giveaway, listen in to the latest podcast from Hitting on 3s (which includes some strong language). They invite you to head over to their forums for a chance to win a Games Workshop (not Forge World) flyer-kit of your choice. You’ll get the exact details (which are quite fun) from their podcast.
Good luck everyone.
