UPDATE: I've posted some news on page 4 -- first day of PAX we gave away A LOT of stuff! And just about everyone is wearing one of our "Game on" buttons. No need to match numbers with anybody, no need to get any cards stamped -- just wear a button, get a card from a prize spotter and come get your prize. Enjoy.
I'm a flack and I work with Intel, among other companies. ;) The team I'm a part of was asked by Intel to come up with some contests to hold around certain conferences this year. I'm also a lifelong gamer so I wanted to come up with something that isn't lame
. I'm really happy to say that we've created some cool contests for PAX and I'd like to invite you guys to join up. Please chime in with questions about this here.What we’re doing for people who can’t go to PAX: Choose a Champion
Anyone 18-years of age or older and living in the United States can enter Choose a Champion. Participants are asked to guess who they think will win this year’s Omegathon tournament. Those who guessed correctly will be entered into a random drawing to receive a Velocity Micro Edge Z30 Desktop (approximate Retail Value: $1,299). http://scoop.intel.com/intelcontests.php
to learn more and register. Contest closes September 4, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.
We just ran this contest for BlizzCon and gave away three ASUS gaming laptops this week.What we’re doing on the show floor: GAME ON!
Intel will be giving away thousands of prizes, including Corei7 processors and laptops daily, for its Game On: Wear it to Win contest. To participate, PAX attendees can visit the Intel booth during regular show hours to receive a button. If Intel’s Prize Patrol spots the participant wearing or displaying the button during the show, they will be given a game card that can be redeemed at the Intel booth for a prize.

At the show floor, we'll be telling people where the prize patrol is periodically through a Twitter feed. Sign up for that here: http://twitter.com/IntelGameOn
