SideQuesting’s Super Mega Awesome Holiday Giveaway 2012 [UPDATE: We have a winner!]

[UPDATE: Congrats to CAiNiACprime for winning the giveaway! Though we didn’t get to 300, he will still recieve the first two levels of prizes!]

Last year, our readers thoroughly enjoyed out epic holiday giveaways. We had thousands of entries over a month-long span, so the point where it helped bring our private servers to their knees. It’s probably not that smart to do something like that again.

But guess what? We’re not that smart. At least, we’re not smart enough to care about our servers, and would rather have you (our WONDERFUL readers) help us test our server strength for us. That’s why this year we’re having one giant Super Mega Awesome Holiday Giveaway that throws the entire stockpile of the gear that SideQuesting has been amassing over the year into one sleigh-worthy sack.

How do you enter?

Entry is easy. Just leave a comment in this post telling us what one game you’re looking forward to for 2013, and you’re good to go! You can enter up to once per day, for the next 7 days — starting today, December 7th, and lasting until Thursday December 13th at 11:59PM PST. That’s SEVEN CHANCES TO WIN.

What do you get?

In this epic giveaway — our BIGGEST EVER — we have literally everything you’ll need to make this holiday season worth living through. We have tons of games to give away, tons of swag and tons of happy feelings that we’ll have knowing that one of you was lucky enough to win it all.
