The Winner of 2 Years’ Worth of Coffee Is…

September 30, 2011

Coffee Beans
     Last month, I posted up a contest/giveaway for 2 years’ worth of coffee, and that contest/giveaway is now over!  To enter the contest, the entrants had to write a poem about coffee, with at least one video game reference in it.
     If you have entered any of my contests/giveaways in the past, you know how I usually randomly select the winner; but for those of you that don’t know how I select the winner, the images below explain it(you may remember the first two images):

     So, who won the contest/giveaway and what was their poem?  Let’s take a look!

     Congratulations to JHardin1112 on winning the 2 years’ worth of coffee contest/giveaway!
     While many of you, like myself, have a website/blog, JHardin1112 also has his own website dedicated to video game news, mainly Nintendo news.  The website he helps operate is NintendoFuse.com(was WiiNintendo).

     JHardin1112’s poem to enter the contest/giveaway was:
     I awaken, all alone in a field,
     surrounded by mountains
     Defenseless, having no sword nor a shield

     What is that I hear?
     My ears do they deceive?
     Strange music abounds,
     Reminiscent of classic, 8-bit sounds.

     I look yonder, a cave is what my eyes perceive!
     As I approach the entrance I see light from a flame,
     Briefly, I am reminded of a magical old game.
     Upon entering I see a bearded old man,
     standing between two flames with something in his hand.

     As I approach, he speaks,
     “It is dangerous to go alone. Take this!”

     I am jarred by those familiar words
     Hesitantly, I reach for the sword.

     Then he hits me on the top of my head and
     says “Wake up Jeremy, time to get out of bed.”

     Oh boy, it’s Monday morning, back to the grind.
     I roll out of bed, and leave my dreams behind.
     I step into the kitchen, right up to the pot,
     grab a filter, measure out some of the grounds and whatnot.

     Then I sit at the table as I wait for my brew,
     Flip open my 3DS, to play for a few.

     What game you ask? Why Legend of Zelda, of course.
     I got it for free as an early adopter, and I have no remorse
     For spending 249 plus tax on day two
     Now excuse me please as I enjoy some of that brew.

     A huge thanks to everybody that participated in the contest, but if you didn’t win the drawing, don’t lose heart; there may be another announcement in that regards soon!
     If you did not enter the contest, but found JHardin1112’s poem fun and entertaining, and you would like to read the other entries, you can read all the other poems from the contest HERE!

CoffeeWithGames Turns Two, Win Two Years Worth of Coffee!

August 29, 2011

Coffee Beans
     On August 29, 2009, I posted my first blog article, “Analyzing the Wii Manufacturing Costs in 2009“.  So today, August 29, 2011, marks the site’s two year birthday of sorts.
     What’s a birthday without a gift though?  Probably just another day of the week!  So, to help celebrate CoffeeWithGames.com’s two year birthday(originally CoffeeWithGames.Blogspot.com), I’m giving away 2 year’s worth of coffee.
     Now some of you might be thinking, “How much is 2 year’s worth of coffee, Coffee?”  Well, I’m glad you asked!

     I’m basing it off of 365 days in a year, and one “cup” of coffee per day.  So, the winner will receive the equivalent to around 730 “cups” of coffee.  Along with the coffee gift, a video game gift might be included as well, though that is to be determined.
     The coffee gifts will be the larger containers of ground coffee, though one whole bean coffee might be included as well.  In the end though, it should be about 730 “cups” of coffee, or slightly more.

How to Enter
     1)  Write a poem about coffee and at least one video game reference, in the comment section below…keep it G, or E for Everyone, rated.
     2)  If you’re a public follower of the blog, through Blogger, that’s a bonus entry…but you must state what your Blogger “follower” name is.
     3)  Bonus entry by “liking” CoffeeWithGames on Facebook, and by stating what your follower name is on Facebook.

Rules
     1)  You must write a poem about coffee and at least one video game reference in the comment section.
     2)  If you want to make sure I have your contact information, send me an email to Scott(@)CoffeeWithGames.com, letting me know which poem/follower name is your’s, that way I have good contact information if you don’t think I have it.
     3)  No purchase necessary, and the contest is void where prohibited.
     4)  The contest/giveaway is open to residents of the 50 United States of America.
     5)  The contest/giveaway will run for one month, from August 29, 2011 and close on September 29, 2011 at 11:59PM EST.
     6)  The winner will randomly be selected by a drawing, and the winner will be announced around Friday, September 30, 2011; or as soon as I receive a confirmation reply from the winner.
     7)  The rules may be adjusted/changed as seen fit.
