I know what you’re thinking. “What do I have to do to sign up for this thing?” you ask yourself. “What hoops do I have to jump through? Do I have to pay money? Sign my soul over? Commit crimes? JUMP THROUGH LITERAL HOOPS?”
The answers are no, no, no, no, and none, in reverse order.
Okay what you’re really asking is, how do I enter, and what to I win?
How to Enter
To enter, all you have to do is sign up for our newsletter. That’s all. It’s right here: just put in your name and email address.
*note: some users have been unable to see the signup form due to ad block software. If you can’t see a box directly to the right of here that says “Subscribe to our newsletter to enter the contest” with a form asking for email address, first name, and last name, disable your ad-block temporarily OR send me a message via our contact page.
Wait, you have a newsletter?
Well, technically, no. But we’re starting one. I know, I know, we’re right here on this website, why do we need to send something to your inbox? Well, there are several reasons. The biggest reason is that this newsletter won’t just be iSlaytheDragon; it will feature content from our partner websites and hopefully even more board gaming goodness beyond that. If you hate it, you’ll be able to unsubscribe at any time after you sign up, but you may find that our newsletter will be the best thing that has ever happened to your inbox.
Beyond just updates from our sites, our newsletter will help us to promote a few things we’re planning on starting shortly down the road; you’ll be the first to know about these fun, exciting developments. And for right now, you’ll be getting a chance to win some awesome games.
What games are we giving away?
So far, we’re giving away:
Yes, we tried it at Gencon and it was actually available at Gencon, so we nabbed a copy of Kemble’s Cascade to give to YOU GUYS. Now that we’ve unlocked some stretch goals, we’re tossing in Tenka and Coin Age.
But we are a board game website, and what would board-game-related things be without MORE STRETCH GOALS. Yes, you heard me.
Goal #1: 150 entrants into the contest – UNLOCKED Reward unlocked: 1 copy of Coin Age to give away, and now 1 copy of Tenka: Shogun Edition. Thanks to Victory Point Games for providing a copy of Tenka. This popular Microgame has been talked up a bit, so our easiest stretch goal will add this into the giveaway mix!
Goal #2: 2000+ followers on our Twitter account @iSlaytheDragon and/or 500+ followers on our Facebook
Reward unlocked: 1 copy of Lords of Xidit to give away, 2 copies of Star Realms
For our more euro or family-oriented followers, we’ve got a copy of Xidit. We’d be happy to keep it to ourselves, but we’ll give it away if we reach enough followers. I believe in you guys.
We’re also adding 2 copies of Star Realms into this level. Hopefully Star Realms doesn’t go out of stock before the contest ends. That’d be awkward (but we’d owe you one if that happened).
Goal #3: 500 entrants into the contest
Reward unlocked: 1 copy of XCOM: The Board Game
It’s not even out yet! But this was @futurewolfie’s most favorite game at the show, so how could we not give it away? Well, we could not give it away but all you have to do is share this contest around so people sign up and this stretch goal will get UNLOCKED.
Goal #4: 250 subscribers on Youtube
Reward unlocked: 1 copy of Imperial Settlers
Have you seen our youtube show, Under the Table, yet? No? Well then this is a reward unto itself. Subscribe to our Youtube channel, watch our show, and you could help unlock yet another cool game to give away.
Goal #5: 1000 contest entrants, 3000+ Twitter followers, and 500 Youtube subscribers
Reward unlocked: ??????, ??????, ??????
If we hit massive levels across the board, which, honestly, I don’t think is going to happen (PROVE ME WRONG), I’ll add 3 more games into the giveaway. Hahahahahaha!

For you international folks, you’re allowed to enter the contest, but we’ll only cover the first $15 of shipping; we’ll need you to cover the remaining shipping costs or forfeit the prize. We hate to have to do this but our funds our limited, and we figure it’s better to offer this option than completely exclude you.
