Competition time: win a lovely Guild Wars 2 pocket watch and more


Just look at it. Isn’t it a beauty? To celebrate the recent Queen’s Jubilee, this very dappy pocket watch was sent to us from the chaps that made Guild Wars 2. It even has a Guild Wars 2 logo on the back. Well as reluctant as we are, we’re giving it away to a good home. We’ve also got two Mini Mr. Sparkles to give away: a golem mini-pet which was only obtainable at Gamescom. All you need to do is scribble a few words in the comment section for a chance to win.

Well what are you waiting for? Time is of the essence.

UPDATE: This competition is now over. Congratulations for Katanastroke for the winning entry. We think playing together is always better, and even better with the people you love.

Runner up was Lunatitch for a reminding us that Eve Online is a truly deadly place, but a place where some of the greatest gaming stories in history have graced our ears.

Here’s what you need to do:

If this pocket watch was somehow magical, enabling it’s owner to travel back in time, which moment in your gaming life would you love to relive and why? What was special about that day? If you could do anything different, would you?

It could be the launch day of your favourite game. Maybe you attained a world first achievement. Even a small feat of defeating that really hard boss could be worthy. The best entries will be able to convey all the feelings you experienced.

Just write your entry in the comments below. The winner will receive the pocket watch and a Mini Mr. Sparkles pet, while a runner up will receive the mini-pet also. The competition closes on Friday, 30th of August at 18:00 BST. The entires will be judged and the winner announced soon after.
