Thumbs up GIVEAWAY - Kiel's Halloween Giveaway

I will make this brief because I am tired and lazy right now

I had always wanted to do a giveaway before and now with this nifty new site and huge list of Fall releases, it seems to be the right time. (Is this the first one here...if so, woot!)

Anyway, I guess it is more of a contest than a pure giveaway, but I like making people jump through hoops, so yeah.

Post a picture of a pumpkin you carved. I will pick the one I like the most (or maybe sucker someone else into doing it). No specifics of what is carved on it, but I would bet that something game or CoG related would go over well.

Everyone is eligable. If you are one of them foreign types, I am not really for shipping stuff to you, but will paypal and let you get it yourself.

Prizes:
1st: a game of your choice (up to the 60$ range...sorry, no rock band/guitar hero)
Other prize(s): to be determined.

I submissions taken until Halloween. Winners will be picked after that when I get around to it.

Good luck all.
And because I can, I guess I should pimp out my blog.

Wow, this sounds fun!

I don't think anyone'll try to cheat, but just in case, maybe we should have to be in the picture, or have a sign with our username or something.

Hmm. I'd better start thinking of ideas!

Great give-away idea Cory!!

Hopefully I'll be able to find a pumpkin to carve here.

I will not be entering the contest as I don't have the time to carve a pumpkin + I suck at carving shit, but I applaud this idea very much! Hooray for contests!

I like the being in the pics one...that way it can double as mug shots for people who haven't gotten around to doing it yet.

Plus, maybe what they are wearing will help the judging (Rini, you can pm me your entries directly ) j/k...maybe.


Ugh, its too early for me to try to post amusing comments.

Open outside of USA?

Also we don't do pumpkin carving here, will you accept something else like a giant papercraft pumpkin? I think it takes just as work but I guess I wouldn't really know having never done a real one.

For those outside the US, I will use paypal and you can get your own game.

If you don't have access to pumpkins or such, I think papercraft would work. Being that I haven't set any real rules on the judging, it sounds acceptable.

I have a feeling that this is going to turn out interesting at least

Hmmm...pumpkin carving you say. It has been awhile, but I like a challenge.

Do you have a deadline?

edit: NM, I just saw, "until Halloween"

Hmm, I suck at pumpkin carving, but with the slew of games coming out this season that I can't afford I owe it to myself to try.

Sweet. My boyfriend had nearly convinced me to get some pumpkins to carve this year anyway (he wants to bake the seeds into tasty-goodness).

Hey, that's a fantastic idea. I'm totally open to bribery!

Joking, of course!

Very cool idea. Maybe I can get Ms. Claus to do one...she's the artist in our clan...maybe she can carve a pic of Mag with his new bracelet

Rails? The DAY/END threads don't need no stinking rails, they just meander like a drunk looking for a bench to flop down on~ Gorvi

Hell, 'derail'? This is like calling the surface of the sun 'warmish'. Somewhat lacking in appropriate magnitude~ Jpublic

That's too applied for my tastes. Math makes the most sense to me when it's reality bending abstraction. Or when it's evil~ Frederec

Nice! I am really excited about theamount of responses. At first I was unsure about the amount of people who would participate. I think if I get around to it I may do one for the fun of it.

Oh hell yes. Couple days ago, I got some pumpkins to cut up after a few years of no pumpkin cutting *evil grins*.

Count me in.
