Time for a giveaway!

[Note: This contest is now over. (We announced the winner here.) But check out our review of Infiltration!]


'Tis the season of giving! 'Tis also the season of our approximate two-year anniversary, and also the season of our 400th twitter follower. For all these reasons, we thought it'd be a great time to... that's right, you guessed it... give away a free board game!


And what better game to give away than one of the games we've been most excited about this year, Donald X's INFILTRATION (see our review here).  Infiltration, a push-your-luck game of breaking in and stealing from a sinister megacorporation's headquarters set in the Android universe, is quite a blast to play. With its well-formulated structure, fast-paced play, and risk/reward tension all set to a delightful backdrop, I have the feeling this game will stay in my collection for a very long time. And now you're getting the chance to add it to yours, for free!

There are three ways to enter:
  • Leave a comment on this post (make sure you give us some way to contact you if you post under an anonymous or guest account
  • Follow us on twitter (If you're already following us on twitter, congratulations! You've already entered!)  Our account is: @iSlaytheDragon
  • Join our Facebook page. (Again if you already 'like' our page, many thanks! And you already gain an entry!)
You only need to do one of the above three to enter, but each additional thing you do gains you an additional entry.

You may gain further additional entries in the following ways:
  • Tweet about our contest with a link to this post and include the hashtag #islaythedragon
  • Leave a meaningful comment on anything we post between now and the end of the contest (only one entry per post, but feel free to comment as much as you'd like!)
  • Share our contest post on Facebook
  • We may announce additional ways to gain more entries at any time during the contest period
The contest officially ends at 11:59 p.m. CST on Friday, November 30th. At that time we will gather all of the entries and put them in a big numbered list and then choose a random number. We will then contact winner, and they'll have three days to respond. If they don't respond to claim their prize, we will pick a new winner, rinse and repeat, until we find someone to claim the prize.


Now for the fine print:
This contest is in no way sponsored by Fantasy Flight Games (we are supplying the prize ourselves) or anyone associated with Infiltration (we chose this prize because we love Infiltration), so you will receive as soon as we can get it shipped to you. We will do our best to ship your prize in a timely manner, subject to availability. The contest will end on November 30 at 11:59pm (central time)  We will contact winners the following day using their method of entry (DM for Twitter, Facebook message for Facebook, e-mail for comments on FDQtherefore, use a real name and e-mail address; it will only be used for this contest, promise). If the winner does not respond within three days, we will choose a new eligible winner, and so on, until someone claims the prize. This contest is open to anyone with an address in the continental United States, except for our family members (sorry, Mom!). (International folks: if you can find a continental US address willing to accept your prize, we'll ship it there, and they can handle the next leg of the journey to you.) We will have the prize ordered within 24 hours after the winner responds to claim their prize, again subject to availability. The winner will be chosen using random.org. We reserve the right to cancel the contest, modify the rules, or disqualify any entrants if there appears to be any tomfoolery or loopholingplease, follow the spirit of a good-natured giveaway contest.

Good luck, and happy slaying!

  1. Can I really be the first one to enter by leaving a comment here? Well, in any case, I played this at my FLGS a couple of weeks ago with my normal gaming group (6 of us) and we had a really good time! So good, that one of my friends bought a copy. Sadly, he hasn't brought it to game night since, so I hope I will be fortunate enough to win my own copy here so I can be the cool kid with the game everyone wants to play! Thanks for running the contest guys.

  2. I had no idea Donald X had made a new game! I obviously haven't been keeping up with things very well! I'd totally love to win it... awesome contest!

    1. Lissa, Donald X actually has several non-Dominion games. Kingdom Builder and Nefarious are also available, we haven't had a chance to review them though.

      Gauntlet of Fools is another Donald X game that is releasing at the end of November and we should have a review of it around that time as well!

  5. After playing a couple of rousing games of Gauntlet of Fools last night, I'd be hard pressed not to enter a contest that could possibly land me a free copy of another Donald X game!

    1. I too have heard mixed reviews, but most of the average reviews I've seen only played the game with 3-4 people. It is significantly improved with higher numbers of players.
