Even though this isn't a contest, there has to be some ground rules to make it fair for everyone:
- Be (or become) a member of StrategyCore. This is mandatory as I have to contact the winners through PM.
- Do not already own a copy of TFTD. I prefer people who haven't played the game yet (if you've played UFO:EU before, that's ok), but I'll give a copy to those who do not have it in their Steam library already.
- Have a Steam account. You can't get the key to work without an account there.
- Be willing to let us use your forum name for the winner's list.
- Use the game for yourself. I'm not against re-gifting a key to someone else if you deem necessary, but if they are able to enter themselves it's better.
- Do not resell the game.
- Do not trade it for something else.
I can't enforce these, so please act responsibly.
So now you are all wondering how to enter the giveaway, right? It's simple, start a post in this topic with the words "I'm in!". Only one entry will be counted. If you want to make a case for why you want a key, go ahead, but your chances will not increase. Guest posts are not eligible to enter and will be ignored. The odds of winning depend on the number of entries received, but in my experience you'll have a pretty good opportunity to walk away with a copy. This giveaway will probably remain open for 1 month to give everyone time to enter and will close at or around midnight CST July 31 2015. Winners will be announced here in this topic and I will also send them a PM. Unclaimed prizes (I'll give you a couple weeks to reply to my PM) will be sent to the next eligible applicant. Winners will be chosen at random with a random number generator.
A big thanks to Thorondor for helping me with the funds to acquire some of the steam keys!
Finally, please "Like" this post if you thought this was a good idea. I want to get an idea how popular a giveaway like this is with everyone. Maybe I'll do another in the future with a different game!
