Does everyone remember the Paper Mario: Sticker Star diorama contest that I entered a few weeks ago? Well, I WON! That's right, I was one of five lucky winners to get an amazing prize package from Nintendo! I started to scream when I read my e-mail, and then I sat down and cried with happiness for about ten minutes, and then I had a celebratory shot of whiskey which doubled as a nerve calmer.
Once I had my head on straight again I realized I was going to end up with two copies of Sticker Star. This is because I knew I was going to buy a copy on Sunday the 11th because even if I won the contest I wasn't going to be able to wait for them to ship me my copy. Who has that kind of patience?
***We interrupt your regularly schedule post to bring you these gratuitous photos of the prize pack***
Host a giveaway, of course!!
This game is really excellent and I want to share the love with fellow Nintendo and Paper Mario fans! The contest will run for two weeks starting from today, Friday the 23rd, and it'll go until midnight PST Friday, December 7th. The winner will receive one (1) copy of Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS. The game is brand new and still sealed in its original box. The giveaway is open to US residents only (I'll be paying for shipping), so I apologize to any international readers!
Here's how you enter:
1. "Like" A Bit of Geek on Facebook!

3. Comment here and tell me which Mario game is your favorite and why!
It's one entry per person, so just let me know that you've done the first two things in the same comment as your favorite Mario game! If you already 'like' A Bit of Geek on Facebook you won't be excluded from entering, don't worry!
The winner will be announced on Saturday, December 8th and will be chosen via random number generator. You'll have one week (7 days) to respond to me. If I don't hear back from the winner within that timeframe then I'll generate a second number.
Be sure to leave your e-mail address or your twitter account or something so that I can contact you!
Be sure to check back next week for my review of the game, too, just in case you need some nudging in the right direction :D
We have a winner!
