1. No purchase necessary. The Guess the Dice Contest (the “Contest”) is open to legal residents of the United States subject to eligibility guidelines below. Void where prohibited by law. The Contest begins at 9:00 a.m. PST on August 10, 2005 and ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on August 18, 2005. This Contest is sponsored by Wizards of the Coast, Inc. (“Wizards”). YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO MAKE A PURCHASE OR PROVIDE OTHER CONSIDERATION TO ENTER OR WIN.
2. Eligibility: The Contest is open to any legal resident of the United States. Employees of Wizards, its affiliates, subsidiaries, franchisees, agents, retailers, advertising and promotion agencies, and fulfillment companies, and their immediate families (parents, children, siblings, spouse) and members of their same households (related or not) are not eligible to participate in the Contest. There is no age limit to participate.
3. How to enter: We filled a D&D game tote with as many 20-sided dice we could beg, borrow and steal (apologies to all our fellow coworkers wondering what happened to their missing dice) – and it turned out the game tote can hold a lot more than we thought! Now here's your chance to win a game tote of your own. There's just one catch: you'll have to be the one who comes closest to guessing just how many 20-sided dice we managed to load into ours.
Make your guess on the following message board thread (one guess per person) from now until August 18th – not coincidentally, the start of this year's Gen Con festivities, where more game totes will be for sale.
Provide your guess to us in one of three (3) ways:
1) Post it on the message board for the contest, which you can find here: http://boards1.wizards.com/showthread.php?p=6924836
2) E-mail it, in Microsoft Word format, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name and postal address.
3) Send it, typewritten, on 8½” x 11 sheets of paper to Wizards of the Coast, Attn: Online Media, Guess The Dice Contest, 1801 Lind Ave SW, Renton WA 98055. Please include your name, e-mail address and postal address.
All entries must be received by Wizards no later than August 18, 2005. Limit one entry per person. Entries are the property of Wizards and will not be acknowledged or returned.
4. Judging: The correct guess wins! In the event that no eligible entry contains the correct guess, then the closest guess without exceeding the correct amount wins. In the event of a tie, winner will be randomly chosen from the tied entries. The winning answer will be posted on the message boards, and at http://www.wizards.com/dnd on or before August 31, 2005. All decisions made by Wizards on all matters relating to this Contest are binding. Winners will be notified by e-mail or telephone. If winners are unable to be contacted at the information they provided within three (3) days after attempts are made, winner will be disqualified and prize may not be awarded in Wizard’s sole discretion.
