Competition: Win a Mini Mister Sparkles!

mister sparkles competition copyMister Sparkles. According to Zojja, he’s the best golem in all Rata Sum. He also has a rather interesting history, even before his adventures in Guild Wars 2.

And now he can be yours. Well, at least a miniature version of him. On my recent travels to gaming expos far and wide, I’ve picked up a couple of code cards for a Mini Mister Sparkles. But I don’t want to keep these for myself – instead, I’d like to share them with those who aren’t so fortunate.

As you can see, I have two codes. But only one will be given away in this competition. You see, I’ve been wracking my brains, trying to think of an ingenious way to provide a challenge worthy of an Asura. After discarding all manner of puzzles, quizzes and tests of wit, I was hit with inspiration.

UPDATE: Did I say two codes? I meant to say ten! The kind folks at ArenaNet spotted my little giveaway and sent over eight more codes to share with everyone. This means that I’ll be giving away five codes in total for this first phase of the competition, and five more in the second phase later this month.

To win a Mister Sparkles Mini, your task is simple: come up with a competition for giving away a Mister Sparkles Mini.

The winning answer will be chosen by me, and used as the basis for a second competition for the second code.

It means everyone gets two chances to win (apart from the first winner – not even Zojja has two Mister Sparkles!), and the entire contest is deliciously meta. I think Snaff himself might approve.

To enter, post a comment below with your idea. Be sure to include a valid email address so I can contact you if you win! And get your thinking caps on, as the first competition closes on 11th October 2013. And if you have any questions, just drop me a mail: gazimoff[at]manaobscura.com.

FURTHER UPDATE: The first part of the competition is now closed! I’ll be picking winners over the weekend and be back on Monday to reveal all! And if you’re not lucky this time around, I’ll be starting the second part of this competition next week.

FURTHER FURTHER UPDATE: The Winners can be found here!
