Child's Play Auction Dinner Ticket Giveaway

edited November 2009 in Games and Technology
So I heard a rumor the other day that people thought I played favorites to SE++, which is just not true! I just know them better! But I'd like to get to know you guys too... And then I can play favorites equally.

Anyway, an anonymous donor has given us a pair of tickets to giveaway for our Charity Dinner, and I'd like to do it with G&T if you're up for it. The details are as follows:

http://www.childsplaycharity.org/cpdinner.php

So that said, do you guys have any suggestions on *how* to give away the tickets?

    I guess raffling them would be too easy for PA. Video competitions seem to be all the rage nowadays.

    I thought of trivia contests, obviously PA related. Or maybe even pick a game, and see who could get the largest score.

    Have a contest where you have to invent a new product from FuckerCo, either write up a sales pitch or draw a picture of it or something.

    Whichever one makes You/Gabe/Tycho laugh the most wins.

    There was a steam sig here. It's gone now.

    Oooh, a fuckerco product contest sounds fun... but the score attack seems to be more appropriate for G/T, doesn't it?

    I thought so, even a multi player tournament of sorts would be cool.

    People be traveling to see family or off on vacations. At least that's the excuse I would put forward. That or people don't care to look at the stickies.

    It's also 2am in the good slice of the world.

    I'll give this a think when my brain isn't mush.

    The best way to give away the tickets is to place them in an envelope and mail them to me.

    Other than that it would seem appropriate that any sort of gaming contest would involve On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness somehow, though I'm admittedly at a loss as to how.

    A "high score" competition may exclude a large portion of the forums, seeing as not everyone would have access to said game. Then again, most contests would exclude some people.

    I'm sure there are plenty of freeware games that we could use.

    Top score contests are appropriate but also kind of lame and excludes people who are bad at video games/do not have a specific video game

    FuckerCo product contest sounds fun and is open to everyone with creativity, plus the results will be probably be hilarious

    I imagine screens would be enough to solve enough of problems, though FuckerCo would be simpler to judge and have be a better time all around. Though I bet any kind of photoshopping contest would be cool.

    I'd just like everyone to know that I went down to the local copyright office and filed one on FuckerCo dildos, dildometers, vibrators, and other vagina ramming devices.

    Just so you know.
    Kidding, I doubt I'll have the creative cojones to submit anything, but I'd certainly look forward to seeing the results of such a contest!
