RIP Hurley's Heroes Giveaway #1
It is with a saddened heart that I bring you this giveaway. One of my two favorite stores in Joplin, Hurley's Heroes, has decided to close it's doors. (Officially, it is not closing, it is actually doing a major downsizing, but along with that, it will be getting rid of all of it's games and gaming area, and will be focusing on subscription comic services). Since I have spent a lot of time at the Hurleys' store over the past year or two (and since the insurance settlement on my home has given me a bit of extra money), as a going away present to them, I offered to purchase all of their remaining board games to try to help alleviate some of the financial obligations related to closing the store. Because of this - I have lots of games to give away!
And… what's the point of a giveaway? To improve my stats, of course! The main two stats that I have noticed have been lagging are my Facebook stats and my Blog Followers. Therefore - these are two ways of getting an entry into the giveaway. Simple enough? You can find how to do both of these on the right-hand side of the screen. But what if you're already a follower of my blog or a fan on Facebook? That's ok - you're entered already! When I create the final list of entries, I will add everyone from Facebook and all of my blog followers.
How else can I enter the giveaway? Well - another way that I'm looking to improve my stats is by getting more links to my site. Therefore, if you also have a site, whether that would be a blog (board game related or otherwise), review site, designer's page, or anything else; you can get another entry. In fact, let's make this one a double entry. Simply add a link to my homepage (www.BoardGameReviewsByJosh.com) and add a comment at the bottom of this post with a link back to where I can see your link to my site. Win, win - I get a link to my site, and you do as well, thus helping to improve both of our rankings with Google! The only stipulation is that you not add links from any pornographic or other questionable site. If your link is from there, I will remove your comment and not add your entries.
But, how long do I have? Well, I plan to announce the winner on Thursday morning, September 1, 2011.
What can I win? Yeah, I thought you might ask. You can win your choice of any one of the following games (in the shrink):
Talisman (Revised 4th Edition)
Zombies!!! 4: The End…
Back to the Future: The Card Game
Resident Evil Deckbuilding Game
Resident Evil Alliance Deckbuilding Game
But, I'm not in the United States! Am I eligible to enter? Well, the short answer is yes. The long answer is, I'm secretly hoping that you don't win, but you should definitely enter, and I won't actually do anything to stack the odds against you - I'm simply cheap and a bit lazy, so I'd prefer not to fill out the paperwork (ahem, ask my wife to fill out the paperwork) to ship internationally.
As a reminder, you can enter by liking the Facebook site, being a blog followers, and adding links back to my site (these count twice, but only if you comment to let me know about them). And, what's more - if I get 300 entries or more, I will pick two winners!!! Now, I would ask that you not enter this giveaway unless you actually do like the site enough to want updates and/or feel comfortable leaving up the links to my site. Of course, this is not something that I can police so, either way, you can enter - I'm just sharing my preference.
Any questions? Anything I forgot to mention? Feel free to ask by emailing me or by adding a comment.
