    IT'S TEMPMAS!
    MERRY TEMPMAS TO ALL MEMBERS OF OUR WONDERFUL COMMUNITY!

    It's been another wonderful year on GBAtemp: the blooming of the Switch scene, the Homebrew Bounty, the launch of our Webcomic, solving our server issues for good, and so much more. But HEY, wait, it isn't even over yet!

    You might wonder: what about Tempmas this year? Every year there used to be multiple competitions and fun activities, so what about 2018? First off, due to the Bounty the budget has taken a hit (we're donating over $4000 to homebrew authors), and let's not forget the social media raffle. However, not to worry: we've got something in store for you! Read on.



    What's up for grabs!

    We're proud to announce that there will be 10 prizes up for grabs for this raffle. Check this out:
    1ST PRIZE: a brand new Nintendo Switch console!
    2nd: a $100 Amazon gift card
    3rd: a $100 Amazon gift card
    4th: a $100 Amazon gift card
    5th: a $50 Amazon gift card
    6th: a $50 Amazon gift card
    7th: a $25 Amazon gift card
    8th: a $25 Amazon gift card
    9th: a $25 Amazon gift card
    10th: a $25 Amazon gift card



    How to enter?

    So, do you guys wanna know how to win this? It is pretty easy, but there is just one tiny little requirement.
    To enter, you must post a reply to this thread respecting the following rules:
    RULE 1: Post a picture of your Christmas tree, or Christmas decorations from your own home.
    RULE 1 (ALT): We want to give everyone a chance: if you don't celebrate Christmas, post a picture of your game console/gaming PC setup.
    RULE 2: All pictures (whether you post a pic of your Christmas tree or your gaming setup) must include a reference to GBAtemp and to the year 2018, so that we know you didn't steal the picture off the Internet.
    RULE 3: You must post before the end of the year (ie. before 2019 begins). Do not worry about the time zone as we will lock the thread on January 1st when all time zones have passed the new year.



    Further details

    The winners will be randomly selected during a live Twitch stream as usual, which will take place early January. If you win the Nintendo Switch but already own one, you can request 3x $100 Amazon gift cards instead.

    We hope you have enjoyed this year at GBAtemp. What do you expect for 2019? Tell us more about how you'd like GBAtemp to improve and become (or remain) the best independent gaming community on the Web!

    Merry Tempmas everybody,
    ~ the staff

    Merry Tempmas, friends!

    We don't really have room in our place for a big fancy tree this year, but this is what we set up on one of the cabinets! Some presents for extended family are underneath but the rest had to be put elsewhere. ;^^ Please excuse all of the clutter- we're running out of shelf space.

    Good luck, everyone!

    We just got lazy and didn't take it down because it's fairly high up and we can't reach it.
