In continuation of Nerd Bastards fan appreciation, ThinkGeek.com has given us some more yummy goodness to give out too some lucky ducks.
Up this week, Gamer Grub Energy Snacks. Gamers know all to well the curse of nourishing the body for extended play-time. It’s simple math. No sleep + No Food = No More Button Smashing. I didn’t mention bathroom breaks because there’s adult diapers for that. Point is, you want the maximum amount of play time with little interruption. While sleep is a cruel unavoidable mistress, food is another problem. Do you really want to get up and waste play time makin’ a hot pocket or bagel bites? While they are yummy, they’re a big time waster and messy. What you need is Gamer Grub, a tasty, vitamin-infused, energy snack in a handy resealable pouch. They’re like candied trail-mix designed to keep your health meter up and keep your fingers and keyboard/controller grease and crumb free. It’s like the best thing to happen to gamers since Mountain Dew.
Now, we have 2 bags to give out to 3 different winners (2 3oz bags each). Each winner will receive 1 bag each of the PB&J and Pizza flavored performance snack. FYI, I’ve eaten both and my god, are they delicious. Best trail-mix EVER! Nerd tested, bastard approved!
What exactly do I need to do to win?
There are two things you need to do to win. 1. You need to follow Nerd Bastards on either Twitter (@nerdbastards) or Facebook. 2. You need to tweet or make a wall update (on the NB facebook fan page- Gamer Grub Giveaway Post) ) saying “I’m Grubby for Gamer Grub”. Simple, right?
Contest is applicable to fans who already follow us on Facebook/Twitter (you just need to tweet or make a wall update of the required fore mentioned phrase). Multiple tweets or wall updates are allowed (no limit, but don’t flood the feeds. Play nice.). 3 lucky winners will be randomly chosen (so don’t go trying to bribe us with money or boobs. They are certainly welcomed, they just won’t increase your chances). on Wednesday 3/30/11. The bags will be mailed out (free of charge via standard delivery) within 1-2 weeks.
Got it? Now, what are you waiting for? Start spreading the Nerdbastards/ThinkGeek gospel. DO IT NOW!
If you do not win but still want some nourishing nomming, then you can buy a single pack for $2.99 or a 3 pack for $7.99 (sweet deal) on thinkgeek.com
