>Contest/Giveaway Winner!

January 28, 2011


Coffee Beans:
     Last Wednesday, I posted about a Coffee with Games contest/give-away.  The time for the contest/give-away has expired, and now it’s time to announce the winner!

How I Chose the Winner:
1)  I kept an empty Maxwell House Dark Roast 270 cup coffee container.

2)  I dropped the entries into the coffee container, then snapped the lid on.

3)  I gave it a good shaking…then, I opened the lid and drew the name…

     Congratulations to Chalgyr on winning the contest!  The package is in the mail, and should arrive probably next Monday or Tuesday!

Filtered Thoughts:
     Thanks to everybody that participated in the contest!  I really do appreciate the time everybody took to enter; and keep an eye out, because there should be another contest/giveaway within the next 2 months!

>Coffee with Games CONTEST/GIVEAWAY!

January 19, 2011


UPDATE:  This contest is over, and you can see the who won at this post,

Coffee Beans:

     I’ll try to keep this as simple as I can.  The contest/giveaway is open to readers in the 50 United States of America(sorry European and world-wide readers…you’ll see why, I hope).
     You may have read my “December Brewed, January Roasting – Happy New Year” post, in which I talked about how busy December was for me, and us as a family.  It was so busy, that I forgot to have this contest!
     Well, being that we are now in a new year, I was thinking that perhaps a calendar could possibly benefit one of you.  Not just any calendar though, I was thinking this calendar:

     That’s right, I’m giving away the 2011 Club Nintendo Calendar.  Being that January is already halfway over, this contest will run through January 26, that way I can hopefully mail it on January 27 and get it to the winner right around the February 1.  Being that this calendar has basically American holidays listed, that’s the reason the contest is only open to residents in the 50 United States.
     The calendar in the picture above is the one I am using, but the 2011 Club Nintendo Calendar that I’m giving away is still sealed up, and hasn’t been opened by me.
