TCF Mystery Raffle: A surprise twist!

Okay so I've decided to spruce up my Raffle for the Logitech Wireless Controller (for Xbox) by devising another angle for a 2nd winner.

Here goes: if you would like to be in the running for a different prize, please POST TWICE (and only twice) in that thread.

I will not say if the 2nd prize is better, or worse (or the same) as the 1st prize. I will only say that it is a mystery:



Let me repeat: if you would like to be in the running for the Mystery prize, post TWICE (and only twice) in that thread.

Yes, this will disqualify you from the running for the Logitech Wireless Controller. However, it will put you in the running for the mystery prize!

At 6 PM on Friday (PST) I will look at the list of respondents. All those TCF'ers with ONE post will be eligible to win the Logitech Controller. I will then use this Random Number Picker to pick the winner. If the number happens to be a that of a double poster (or more) I will pick another number until an eligible winner is decided.

After that, I will take all the names of the double-posters (and only the double-posters) ... put their names in a hat, and pick the winner of the Mystery Prize. If I have the resources I will video myself picking the name out, and share this video for you all to enjoy.


So, which raffle strategy will you go for? Will you aim for the Logitech Wireless Controller, or will you spin the wheel and hope for greater odds... aiming for the MYSTERY PRIZE???



Please note: Any decision I make is final and not up for discussion. This is for fun, not fodder for whining. If you don't like my rules, or are skeptical of any rules I may make in the future concerning this raffle, don't enter. I reserve the right to cancel this raffle at any time for any reason whatsoever. I also reserve the right to post as many times in this thread as I like, and make as many "punch in the face 4 or 5 times" jokes as I like too. Bottom line: my raffle, my thread, my rules.

Those have to be the most confusing contest rules I've ever read anywhere! Since I have no idea how to play, I guess I'll pass.

OK, I've re-read the rules and now understand.

I bet there's a super secret bonus prize for people who post 4 or 5 times.

From now on, Fofer's new nickname is Monty Hall.

So, do we take our prize, or go for what's behind door number 2???
