Maximum team size of FIVE. £5 donation per team….prizes? Well, maybe we can come up with something.
(In the event of a draw, there will be a tie-breaker question)

Tickets for the raffle will be on sale during Saturday evening with ALL proceeds going to GamesAid. Tickets will be a £1.00 each. The more you buy, the better your chances!

We’ve had some wonderful donations from various companies and members of the community, which we’ll be revealing on the forum on the run up to the event.
We will also have some VERY special prizes that will be AUCTIONED off during the evening.

If you’re reading this and think that you have something you’d like to donate to the prize vault, then please email Adamski@midlifegamer.net with details.

**The Just Giving website is set up to take donations for raffle tickets and auctioned items**
**We can access this site on the night via smart phone or wifi for payment**
**We must insist that successful bidders for auction items make their donation on the night**

We will be handing out special Midlife Gamer VIP Passes* on the Saturday for a fun show floor game to play. We want to encourage you to visit particular places at the Expo which we feel you would find of interest.
On the back of the pass you will find a number of logo’s. All you have to do is head to the places featured, start chatting to the staff at the stand and get a sticker from them.
Collect them all and you will unlock a special forum avatar award. Pass will also feature a special QR Code, so make sure you’ve got a mobile device that can read this…who knows where it will send you!?

For details of how to collect your pass, keep an eye on the forums closer to the event.

*The passes are not associated with Eurogamer and do not grant you access to any backstage areas.

  5. avatar metalshed says:

    im sad because im not allowed to go and play out in London. Wish there were more conventions further north.

  6. avatar MaGe1974 says:

    If my Eurogamer excitement could be turned into useable energy, I’d be single-handedly powering a substantial part of South Wales right now….

  7. avatar EpicArdaSnails says:

    That should be a teeshirt on its own, amazing!

  8. avatar DigitalPariah says:

    Have to agree with Epic. Would buy that tshirt for EG2012.

    Come on guys. Make it happen :D

  9. avatar Tepic says:

    Make the shirt! Or a larger image so I can make my own!

  10. Hi all,
    In answer to those requesting the name collage to be released as an official shirt design…

    The short answer is no.

    The longer answer is the designs we create are in vector format, and are designed to fit the strict criteria for flex printing (highest quality) in Spreadshirt.
    Even if the image was converted to vector format it would be rejected due to the small size of the lettering.

    All I can suggest is that the original creator posts a high quality image so that users can upload to Spreadshirt or another online T-Shirt printer themselves.

    Be advised though that this will only output as a digital print, which is of much lesser quality and will be pretty much fucked after a handful of washes, like that Ben 10 pyjama set you can buy on the market for your Son/Nephew for £5.

    Buyer beware!
