Win Retro Gaming Hack Book & 1st Issue of Sega Visions Magazine

prizes-3.jpgIt’s time for another contest at racketboy.com!

For this contest we will actually have multiple winners due to the generosity of O’Reilly Publishing. The prizes for this contest are centered around Retro Gaming Hacks by Chris Kohler. I will be doing a full review of the book shortly, but it looks to be filled with great ideas on making the most of old games and consoles.

As an added bonus, one lucky winner will also receive a rare copy of the first issue of Sega Visions magazine from my personal collection. So to summarize, here are the prizes from this contest…

  • 1st Prize: A Copy of Retro Gaming Hacks & The Rare First Issue of Sega Visions Magazine
  • 2nd Prize: A Copy of Retro Gaming Hacks
  • 2nd Prize: Yet Another Copy of Retro Gaming Hacks

So how do you enter for a chance to win these prizes?

  • Simply write 2 to 3 paragraphs about some of the most popular NES, Genesis/Megadrive, SNES, or N64 games and post it here in this forum thread.
  • Each game you write skillfully about will qualify as one entry into the random drawing.
  • If your writing is especially good, it may qualify for multiple entries.
  • You can submit as many entries as you would like.
  • After the April 30th deadline, I will draw the user name of an entry at random to choose the winner.

If you had more than one entry in the last contest but didn’t win, every two entries will be converted into a bonus entry for this contest. This will also continue on with the next contest. As another added bonus, any user that does not win this contest will have extra chances to win towards the next drawing. For every two non-winning entries from this contest, you will have one extra entry thrown in towards the next contest.

Anyway, check out the contest forum thread for full rules and details. I look forward to seeing the entries!
