36 Hour Gaming Marathon Competitions

Rules and Stuff You Really Should Read

We don’t like scary looking terms & conditions or license agreements, but unfortunately there are logistical and technical restrictions that we can’t do anything about. This is why we’re putting this bit before the good stuff.

Above all else, please just remember that we’re just a bunch of gaming nerds trying to do a good thing for a very worthy charity. We’re not some faceless corporation with big pockets and fancy lawyers – we’re not even sponsored by anyone – and we’re not trying to rip you off or scam you. We’ve put a lot of effort into this event and everything we’ve had to pay for has been paid from our own pockets, including the competition prizes. We’ll do our best to sort out any problems that crop up but just bear this in mind.

First of all, all the games we give away will be PC games which have been legally purchased through the Steam platform in the UK. Steam has added functionality that can block gifting of games across regions, and it’s not immediately obvious which games and/or regions this applies to. Therefore we highly recommend that you do not enter competitions unless you are a UK resident. Of course it’s up to you if you want to take the risk, but we make no guarantee that you’ll be able to receive the prize if you don’t have a UK Steam account. Of course it goes without saying that you’ll need a Steam account if you want to enter…

Secondly, you will still be bound by any terms imposed by publishers, developers, or even Valve. You’d have to agree to this stuff if you bought the game anyway – this shouldn’t be too much of a big deal – but we’d be in remiss if we didn’t mention it.

Finally, please don’t troll us to hell and back if something does go wrong or your account is unable to accept the gifted game. We’ve tried to make things as clear as possible, so you’ll only be making a fuss because you didn’t read this page like we asked you to.


Free Stuff!

So far we’ve lined up the following games as prizes:

  • FTL
  • Torchlight 2
  • Super Hexagon
  • Bit Trip Runner 2
  • Super Meat Boy
  • Dead Pixels
  • Little Inferno
  • Papers, Please
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
  • Super Hexagon

All of these games will be given away in ONE BUNDLE. All these awesome games could indeed be yours!

As an added incentive, if we make it to at least  75% of our fundraising target – that’s £350 – we’ll also give away a complete copy of XCOM: Enemy Within, which will include all the DLC packs.


How To Enter

The competition will open at 10am (BST) on Saturday 28th June and will run for one day. You can enter by using the link below.

Before we start, please note that we will be vetting the entries once the competitions are over. If you’ve entered more than once then you’ll be disqualified. No ifs, buts or maybes – we’ll take you out of the running before we pick the winner.

The competitions will be managed by https://www.rafflecopter.com/. All you’ll need to do to enter is to leave your name, email address (this will be kept private) and your Steam user ID – that’s it, no liking, no sharing or any of that stuff. You’ll be able to enter directly via rafflecopter – we’ll update this page (as well as the Facebook page, Twitter feed and Twitch chat) with the link when the competition opens. We will announce the winners on Monday 30th June; I’m sorry we can’t do this any sooner, but we’ll be a little busy!

Once the event is over you will be sent a friend request on Steam from one of our organisers, blcollier (that’s me!). Once you’ve accepted the friend request you will have the game gifted to your account.
