    [​IMG] Live In or Near the London Area?
    Meet Thieves and Win Some Prizes!

    Find the "American Rat" and Win Fabulous Prizes!

    I will be on holiday in and around the London area from this coming Saturday, March 7th through the following Saturday, March 14th.

    sunday's event will take place at 1pm

    During my stay I am holding two "meet an American rat" events where the first 5 registered forum members during each event that introduce themselves will automatically win a nice little prize as well as an entry to win a brand new, Nintendo DS Lite bundle.

    Up for grabs are following:
    - Nintendo DS Lite bundle no. 1 (Limited Edition Black Pokemon Diamond/Pearl system w/ carrying case) and some random [new and sealed] DS game (from my collection)
    - Nintendo DS Lite bundle no. 2 (Limited Edition Red system with a white Mario "M" logo and a copy of New Super Mario Bros.)
    - Roughly 20 or so videogame related tchotchkes

    (Note: All items are brand new and still sealed!)

    Rules: Twice during the week, the 8th (Sunday) and 14th (the following Saturday) of March to be specific, I will post a thread indicating where I will be in or near the London area, and all you have to do is locate me and introduce yourself. The first 5 people will receive a tchotchke. Those 5 (from GBAtemp.net) and all other registered members of the forum that I meet within the next hour are then eligible for the DS Lite bundle for that day by means of a random drawing after the hour expires.

    The odds of winning one of the two nintendo DS Lite bundles will depend on the number of people making contact for that given day. the winner of the day one event will be ineligible from winning a DS Lite bundle on day two.
    A minimum of 10 people must show up for the DS Lite bundle to be offered as a prize. If the minimum number of 10 is not met at the first event, those people's raffle ticket will be pooled in with those from the second event so that at least one DS Lite bundle will be offered up regardless of the total number of people showing up to both events.

    too bad i dont live in London ;_;
    its so nice of you to be giving away free ds lites!

    p.s. the front page format is just like one big glob of your words (readable, but not very pleasing to the eye)

    alright already. I'm through messing with it.

    I will post a time and location (although, to be honest the first location has already been chosen. just need to get a time).

    the location will be the trocadero (arcade) in piccadilly circus on sunday, march 8th. I'll be the one sporting a black "finger eleven" hoodie as seen here:
