SimPrograms Contest – MadCatz Sims 3 Illuminated Mouse giveaway!

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED!  Please give me an hour or so to where I can gather up all of the entries, put them into a randomizer and draw out the 3 winners!  Will be announcing them shortly!  Whew, that took a lot longer then expected….I need to find a better way of doing drawings, lol.  Anyhow, the three randomly picked winners are:  hlchlebik, Raphael Gious and Amber (aka Queenblood_Imp).  Thank you so much for playing guys, I’ll get ahold of the winners to get the details and ship em’ out!  And if you’re able to purchase one yourself – do so, these are awesome :D

Talk about an awesome company!  I don’t tend to get a hold of gaming companies to check in about giving away items, so it was a huge shock when I heard from MadCatz over the fact that they wanted to send me three Sims 3 Illuminated Mice to give away to our readers.  Of course, how could I pass up an opportunity like that?  I love giving things away to the readers and it’s not often I get to do it!  So with that being said (thank you, MadCatz!), 3 lucky readers will be randomly selected (because that’s easier for me to deal with) to take home one a brand new mouse!

Rules are:

1. Open to anyone

2. Only enter/comment once.

3. Must have a valid email address and check it often in case you win

4. Contest ends sometime Friday night on April 6, 2012

And since I can’t plug MadCatz enough, the mouses themselves are available for sale over at their Store for the low price of $24.99 ;)  Good luck on the contest!

No, you can’t have the TARDIS :P


  1. Those mouse look awesome!! I hope I win one :)

  6. ManagerJosh says:

    Cause history is made at night so close the books turn off the light and listen

    Let my heart be the teacher

    No one here to disapprove

    As we review the lessons you’ve been missing

    Let the moon be our only light
