Contest Time!!

Welcome to a hopefully recurring new thing here on Buttonmashing Dot Com: Contests!! Giveaways! Free stuff! Hopefully this will be a taste of things to come. It’s so exciting, it gets two exclamation points!!

Our first contest is sponsored by Split Reason, makers of fine Geek and Gamer garb like T-shirts and Hoodies. For this inaugural contest, they are giving away THREE free t-shirts to Buttonmashing Dot Com readers like you!

So here’s how this first contest is going to work. For the next three weeks Until December 10th, every time you post a comment to the site, you’re automatically entered into the contest. Each new comment you post is another entry in your favor. The more you comment, the more chances you have.

I want to avoid comments like “Me, too” and “LOL” by people looking to pad their entries, so I reserve the right to exclude any comments I feel excessively “spammy.” I want to generate good discussions and have a way to thank (i.e. reward) those who add to the it.

Zombie Day at the Mall t-shirt @ SplitReason.comSo if you’re interested in playing, now would be a great time to start your entries. The winners the will be able to choose their prize, so why not head over to Split Reason and pick out you favorite shirt and come back and tell us which it is! If it were for me, I’d definitely go with the Zombie Day at the Mall:

Since this is our first contest, we don’t have a set of contest rules, per se. I think we’ll have to restrict the contest to our fellow North Americaners. I don’t think Split Reason wants to ship anything international. Also, for this, the first contest on the site, everyone is eligible for a prize (except me). So contributors and friends and families of the site are eligible. Other than that, have fun and comment away!


  1. Sure, have a contest like this AFTER I join the site as a contributor.

    I love that shirt though.

  2. I have to say I really like that shirt. Don’t think I like the color. I wish there was more zombie ones πŸ˜› I also liked the CHARACTER SELECT t-shirt.

  3. I just wanted to post my favorite shirt.

    Very nice.

  4. @Brock – I should have mentioned this in the post, but for this, the inaugural contest, everyone is eligible. All the contributors will have their names thrown in, too. I’ll update the post to reflect that.

  5. Oh really? Well, it’s a good thing I keep commenting on everything πŸ™‚

  6. I hope Canada is included (technically international :-P).

    So many good shirts…

    My top 2 would be:

  7. 7th post!


    —Don’t count this one. πŸ˜€

  8. Count me in! I want to win.

    Does this count?

    I like games and shirts. I think that adds to the discussion. Does it count now?

    Come on! Let it count!

  9. I think I overrule all of you as Mrs. Buttonmashing. I want the shirt for the ladies showing a controller shot to bits. My dream come true.

    Nice to see some more reader activity going on in the blog! I’ve never heard of SplitReason before, but browsing around, I like what I see!

    Also: Is that REAL Mrs. Buttonmashing? I suspect identity theft!

  11. Im tarveling to the states this holiday… Do I get to participate? ^_^

  12. @fs – yeah, it’s been nice to have more activity, but we need moar moar moar! And yes, that’s the real Mrs. Buttonmashing. She wants in on the free stuff, too.

    @Darkzeta – if you have an address in the US to send it to, you’re in luck (if you win, of course!)
