Hey Social Vampires!
AEG is going to give away complete sets of Nightfall, Martial Law, Blood Country, and The Coldest War via Facebook and Twitter.
You have two chances to win, via both outlets.

Here’s how it works:

Twitter
Follow @alderac on Twitter and tweet this exact message:

Quote:
RT this and follow @alderac for a chance to win a full set of Nightfall! 3 Winners will be chosen March 19! http://www.nightfallgame.com/2012/03/14/nightfall-giveaway-c... #NFContest

If by March 19 we have over 1000 followers on the @alderac Twitter, we’ll give away 6 sets!

Facebook
Visit the Nightfall Facebook page and “Like” it.
Then look for the status update featuring this contest.
Share it on Facebook for your chance to win.
If we get over 2000 followers on Facebook by March 19, we’ll draw 6 winners from there also!

Notes:
Both contests will end approximately noon Central Standard Time on the 19th, when winners will be chosen.
Winners may be from anywhere in the world and AEG will pay for shipping.

Good luck!

I tried to tweet the required text, but it is over 140 characters.

I tweeted this

http://www.nightfallgame.com/2012/03/14/nightfall-giveaway-c...

Rather than this

RT this and follow @alderac for a chance to win a full set of Nightfall! 3 Winners will be chosen March 19! http://www.nightfallgame.com/2012/03/14/nightfall-giveaway-c... #NFContest

Is that a valid entry, or do I need to tweet something else?

I'll contact AEG and request a shorter URL to make it work and will check that your entry is valid as well.

See Todd's response below.

I managed to tweet it and I am a complete twitter noob. I copied and pasted the text from the nightfall game website rather than here, but then confused myself trying to follow @Alderac.

I THINK the ideal way to do it is search for @Alderac, and then you'll have the option to retweet their latest tweet without the url going wonky. You can then follow them. I don't know whether just tweeting it will be enough or whether you have to specifically 'retweet' it. Who knows...

I'm feeling quite pleased with myself, although have just lost 10 minutes of my life following random links. I think Twitter may have just got another victim...robot

Oh, and liked on Facebook. Here's hoping, and thanks for another great giveaway!

When you tweet it from twitter.com it automatically reduces the length. And you can just click retweet on the existing tweet (which is kinda the easiest way) when you look at @alderac

Good luck!

I copied and pasted everything that was in the quote bar. The URL given can be tweeted fine.

When I read the instructions to tweet the following, and it was all in the quote bar, I figured I should copy and paste everything in the quote bar. If only the url is to be tweeted it works fine.


Retweeting seems to be the way to go.

Is there any way to enter for those three of us on the planet who don't use Twitter or Facebook?

Is there just me who hates spamming other people just to get some free stuff? Thanks for the contest, but I do not participate in the ones, which need sharing something on my wall in Facebook.

That's a perfectly reasonable personal choice. Fact is however that such promotions do spread knowledge of the product in exponential ways, and they won't go away any time soon. Spreading things on people's "Walls" is to me exactly the reason Facebook and such was invented.

Interesting thing: I've never participated in one of these before and when I did this one I was contacted by an old friend on Facebook who saw my shared link and asked if I've ever heard of this website for board games called "Board Game Geek". We've both been on the Geek for who knows how long and never knew the other was here!

Words to live by: on a free internet service, the users are the product, advertisers are the customers, the service is the means of farming the product.

And yes, I'm not only on Twitter and FB, but have entered the competition.

Because I'm a cheap tart. In fact, I'm putting up my own sign here; WILL DO BARE MINMIMUM OF PIMPING FOR THE CHANCE OF FREE STUFF.

Are there any plans to give away codes for the Nightfall iOS app? I'd bite your arm off for the chance to play that... zombie
