Thanks to the very generous folks at Microsoft (and Edelman PR), we have an eye-popping prize pack to award to one lucky reader: A 4 GB Xbox 360 console, complete with a Kinect sensor, and copies of Halo Reach and Fable III. All that swag will get you gaming in no time.
To win this ultimate gaming package, all you have to do is submit your best idea for creating a video game. You're limited only by your imagination, but please try to avoid ripping off games already in existence (and keep it clean, eh?). The more detail you give us, the better, and you can submit written pitches, illustrated pitches, audio pitches or video pitches, but please keep the audio/video pitches to 90 seconds.
E-mail your entries (be sure to include your full name and address) to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Nov. 29. We'll sort through the pitches, pick our favorite and name a winner, who will be unveiled in our Dec. 2 issue of Ink. One entry per person, per household, please. Multiple entries from the same person or household will be discarded. Employees of McClatchy and their relatives are ineligible. Good luck!
