Contest – Free Copy Of Half Life 2!
Many Years ago I bought Half-Life 2 when it came out. Then some years passed and I bought the Orange Box during a sale, which also came with a copy of Half-Life 2. So here I am years later, and I still have 1 (one) copy of Half-Life 2 that I can give away as a ‘gift.’ *(If you do not know what Half-Life 2 is, please see the bottom of this page)*
I thought of selling it, or trying to trade it, but I though it’d be better to give it away. And what’s the best way to get rid of crap stuff you don’t want? A CONTEST!
**UPDATE** CONTEST CANCELED!! There were not enough entries to fulfill my contest rules, and it’s been about a month. So I am canceling the contest. Thanks to everyone who entered, sorry about wasting your time.
So here is how you win:
It’s simple. Just leave a comment below. That simple. I will select one random winner from the comments below.
First, if you DO win, you will be required to have a Steam Account and download the Steam software, they have rules and terms of service that you will have to agree to and I have no part of that, so that’s on you. (http://store.steampowered.com/). Steam accounts are free, and costs you nothing unless you buy games with it, etc etc. The winner will not be receiving a physical copy of the game, it is a digital copy via Steam. To have a steam account you more than likely will also require a Windows PC with certain system specifications. You will have to determine if you can run Steam or Half Life 2 on your own.
Second thing: You need to provide a valid email address when you leave a comment. I will not share your email addresses with anyone, and I will need to have a valid one to contact to let you know you won. Once the name is drawn, I will attempt to contact you via the email provided. If no response has been received within 72 hours, your name will be removed and a new name will be drawn. So on and so forth until a winner is found.
Third: I will be giving away 1 copy, it is valued at maybe $5-10 if that. There are no second place prizes, just one prize.
Fourth: The contest will go for 1 week, or until at least 25 comments are posted. That’s right. We need to have a minimum of 25 people before I will draw a name. This means that if a week from now, on Sunday December 20th, there are only 20 entries. Then the drawing will not happen until there are 5 more.
**UPDATE: Since I have not reached the minimum of 25 entries, I’m going to let this run until I decide to cancel it or I get 25. If by some miracle I get a bunch of entries and hit lucky number 25, I will start clocking. Once 25 entries are hit, I will leave the contest open for 24 hours, at that point I will disable comments and pick a lucky winner. (added Tuesday December 29th)
Fifth: Please only one entry per person. If I figure out you entered more than once, you will be disqualified from the contest (and made fun of publicly).
Drawing will be held approximately at 8PM CST Sunday December 20th so long as the conditions listed in ‘Fourth’ have been met. **UPDATE** At the time scratched out above there were only 13 entries. Roughly half of the required entries. So yes, my contest is full of fail. ***
*contest rules may change at any time due to my lack of knowledge in running a contest.*
ALSO: Comments will have to be approved by me, so it may take a few hours as I can’t sit here all week approving them. So if you comment it may take a while. So be patient.
