    3 codes and 4 people who want [at least] one... Random draw it is. [4 is if @Little-Miss wants NFS:MW]

    Now to check if I actually have video capabilities.


    So, this is how it's going down.

    There will be 3 draws, one for each game.
    You can put your name into as many draws as you want, but you're only in each one ONCE.
    The draw will be on Friday 1st March, 2013 at time o'clock or there abouts. [AKA when I remember to do it.]

    If you want to be entered, can you send me a PM [with a subject of "Gaming Giveaway!"] with which games you're interested in.


    [Also added to first post.]

    In a word - spreadsheet. Just add the names as they come in and you can easily check for duplicates before you draw. Do a separate column or worksheet for each draw, print out each list, chop em up with scissors and throw them in a spare BroadLeaf chassis.

    Then switch on your video camera and draw the winners. Make sure everyone gets a bag of Haribo so there are no losers.

    Something like that anyway - sorry I don't have any high tech automated solutions for you - guess you could use some sort of formula with a random function to identify a winner rather than getting the scissors out, but little tickets work best for us because of the video.

    No trade secrets really, but I hope this is useful to you anyway.

    You're still not getting a consultation fee.

    AAAAAAAAND my webcam is broken.

    I cracked open the screen [yes, I was planning on using my laptop's webcam. What of it?!] and it fell out. The connections were actually broken, which is why the video stopped working.

    I have no idea how I'm doing this draw in a way people can say is fair...

    Aside: I wasn't even sure how I was going to do it when the camera WAS working... It took me about 3 hours to do that lame little one, and it went through many variations because I LITERALLY COULDN'T SPEAK.

    dafuq is wrong with me...
