[Contest] Enter the $1,000 Holiday Giveaway!

Gamer Santa comes early and leaves cash. Enter to win $1000 for the holidays!

We know, we know: pumpkins are still fresh, turkeys uncooked, and you want to punch me in the face for even mentioning 'the holidays.'

But Gamer Santa's on a timeline, because he wants to get one lucky gamer $1,000 in time to do some serious holiday splurging.

Contest ends November 29th, and the winner will be announced Monday December 2nd--want to get in on GameSkinny's holiday festivities?

To Enter:

Step 1: Make a List

Just answer these 10 questions about what gaming goodies you're dreaming of.

(This will open a new tab, don't worry, just come on back to this page when you're done.)

Step 2: Write a letter for Gamer Santa

*This kid asks hard-hitting questions and still requests presents. Smooth and bold.*

It's probably been awhile since you broke out the crayons, but dig deep, because on Monday, December 2nd the most popular Letter to Gamer Santa will take the Grand Prize and win the $1,000 prize.

How to Win

Share your letter! The winning letter will be chosen by number of views, shares and comments. 

Get creative! Everything's fair game - an actual letter explaining why you should land squarely at the top of the 'nice' list, a slideshow of the things you would buy with your winnings lovingly rendered in crayon, a photo of a tower of cookies next to the fireplace, a video of you crooning game themed carols to Gamer Santa - bring it.

Be sure to tag your entry "Letter to Gamer Santa" using the Bonus Points tab. (Using the "craft your letter" button will automatically tag your entry.)

In the event of a tie, the GameSkinny editors will decide based on creativity and sheer unadulterated entertainment value.

Good luck!

Check out the letters so far!

    If your experiencing an issue with the Wish list I believe you have to be signed in first. After that you will have actual options to select and your voice can be added to the poll :D...if your talking about the Gaming Santa contest. It sadly has ended as of yesterday. BUT, don't let that stop you, still voice your opinion in the poll. Let the community know what your looking forward too this Holiday season :3

    Bah, I was considering taking part but the rules state only US residents are eligible.

    Did someone cancel Christmas in the rest of the world?

    I took part but for the posting fun tbh (although a grand is always nice lol). No chance of me touching the earlier poster view counts though so no danger of winning! :)

    Ack! Sorry we missed your question. I've updated the contest info to explain:

    "Share your letter! The winning letter will be chosen by number of views, shares and comments."

    Good luck! We don't have many entries right now, so odds are pretty good for everyone :)
