I’ve been a little bit lucky..

Earlier this week, I noticed somebody talking about a competition on Twitter, to win a copy of Civilization V.  I thought it worth a shot, and went for the competition myself.. and won!

So I have a copy of Civ V arriving early next week, and might well end up having a few days off Warcraft 😉

I then wondered what else was out there.. and came across a competition for Dead Rising 2.  I wasn’t quite lucky enough to win that.. winning two games in a week would be pushing things a bit.. but I did win this pretty neat Zombrex Immunisation pen 🙂

I quite like the blue liquid swishing around in the barrel 🙂
