Achtung: Easter Egg Hunt to win Achtung - Spitfire!
- John Iverson(johnnyi)United States
So another Memorial Day has come and gone. I spent part of mine at a local air museum giving blood, wandering among the static displays, and buying stuff I don't need at the store (Guide to over 900 Aircraft Museums 26th Edition and Guns of Navarone on sale). While trying to stand at attention watching the B-25 flyover during the flag raising ceremony and feeling a little woozy because the blood donation took so long the pancake breakfast line was closed by the time I got out and having just listened to a recording of the book Unbroken on a recent road trip, I thought to myself "Wow, am I soft" and then I thought "You know, I should give away another game; one with an airplane theme". So here it is, your chance to win a copy of Achtung - Spitfire!.Recommend
Achtung - Spitfire! is the second game in the Fighting Wings series from Clash of Arms providing a detailed plane to plane air combat simulation with many planes from the Battle of Britain era (Spitfires, Hurricanes, ME-109 E and F's, ME-110s and associated bombers). This specific game is unpunched in an intact box with no torn corners, there is rubbing wear but the cover art still shows nicely; the contents are nice save for the rules which are 'well read' and 'conveniently' have errata corrections already added for you in felt pen.
This is totally free for continental United States. For anywhere else, you'll have to cover any shipping cost over $10 USD. You have the option also to just solve the easter egg hunt and not take the game.
"I've read that long diatribe and am stoked; how do I win?"
To win you must be the first to do the following four things:
a) find the photo-shopped addition that was made to one of the images included in the following geeklist:
Are you kidding me...I could have had a half track
No one made comment on it when the list was first posted so either the photoshop is well hidden or it was too trivial to mention.
b) add the game to this geeklist that most matches the photo-shopped addition
c) in the comments field for that game, add description of what was photo-shopped (if handy with geeklists, add this as a spoiler text using the "SP" button; if really handy, insert the actual image in the spoiler box too - the spoiler box will let others who like puzzles still look for the easter egg without knowing the answer)
d) add whether you actually want the game by cutting and pasting into the comment field the answer below that most matches your desires:
1) Yes, send me the game. I love getting free stuff. Give to me.
2) Yes, send me the game. I've played Fighting Wings before and would love to have my own copy of a game from the series.
3) Yes, send me the game. I've played Wings of Glory and think I am ready for what I envision is a minor step up in complexity.
4) Yes, send me the game. I think I can flip it on Ebay.
5) Yes, send me the game. I'll add it to my huge stack of unplayed games I will probably never get to.
6) Yes, send me the game. The nuns at the local convent are always looking for additions to their game room.
7) No, just keep the game. I just like solving puzzles and riddles and the glory of being the first person to solve this one is prize enough.
8) No, just keep the game. I've tried the Fighting Wings series before and I'd rather have a hot poker stuck in my eye than do that again.
9) No, just keep the game. Our house could be on that hoarders reality show and I'm trying to do my part to keep it off the air.
10) No, just keep the game. If the game isn't in display worthy condition for the Smithsonian Museum, I am not interested in it for my collection.
11) No, just keep the game. I live in another country and I know my portion of the postage will be well above what I could pick the game up locally for.
If you win and you want the game I'll geekmail you for your address.
(So you read all of that and you can see from the list entries someone already won and you are disappointed because you actually had the urge to do something, feel free to add a game with comment field describing a veteran (including yourself) you thought of this weekend or recently).
