Howdy,

I'm not sure at all who to ask about this, so I'm just tossing this up in the General BGG forum here.

Long story short then...

I have a video review series. I'm on video #49. For video #50, I plan to do a video review on a game. I would like to run a contest to celebrate. The publisher has expressed interest in supporting the contest, but there was some concern that it would be breaking the rules by doing so.

The contest would basically be as follows: Thumb the video review of the game, and you are entered into a drawing and the company will send a copy of the game to a randomly selected "thumber".

Any feedback is appreciated. Or, if anyone can point me in the right direction to contact an admin, that would be great.

I think the concern is with the "company supported" aspect of it. I know I've seen other video reviewers do contests (some "company supported" and some not), but I'm not sure what (if any) hoops they've had to jump through to make everything kosher.

Thanks!

Wouldn't it easier just to have the game sent to me?

I didn't think you would have any interest in Steam: The Candyland Edition. Interesting... ninja

It'd be even easier to 'send' to me.
