Countdown To Christmas Contest Day 6 & 7

Alright everyone, sorry for my little disappearing act. The weather around these parts caused some power and internet outages which left me high and dry (and cold) for quite some time.

So here`s where we stand; the day six contest was missed. So were combing the prizes for a massive day seven giveaway!

Here`s what we have for prizes:

Three Extreme Flash Advance 256Mbit LC, GBA flash cartridges from

Two Sega Saturn Modchips from Robb Webb’s online store.

Two winners choice of a Video Game Sprite T-Shirt and Mousepad from eBay seller RetroRalphs

Two copies of Feet Of Fury for the Dreamcast, an Earthworm Jim exclusive mail away action figure and a 9 inch Donkey Kong Plush from the GoatStore

Copy of Earthbound 0 and Super Mario Bros. 2 Japanese Edition from NESREPRODUCTIONS.COM

As well as a brand SPANKING NEW PRIZE!

A Game Boy Test cartridge from Limbofunk of Limbofunk has put together a HUGE resource of information related to the Nintendo Authorized Repair Center Program. Definitely the biggest resource of it`s kind. Check out the site for more info, and sign the guestbook if you have a chance! Comments, feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

So How Do I Win…

Today`s contest is either the easiest, or the hardest. All you need to do is find an interesting auction, and post a link to it in the comments. Include a description in the title so we know what it is before we click through.

The top ten (or top five, depending on submissions) most interesting and gameSniped worthy auctions (as choosen by Nicola and myself) will be put into a vote on Tuesday morning. The winner, will be the one with the most votes, as chosen by you, our readers.

The winner gets a GRAND prize pack, consisting of one of everything with more than one above, as well as your choice between some of the cooler items. Anyone who hits the top ten or five, will get something however. Knowing Nicola as well, he`ll probably end up giving prizes out during the duration in the comments. I`ll see if I can round something up for the same purpose as well.


Once again, you NEED to be registered to win. That’s the only way I can confirm your the person who posted and make sure you get your prize. Go here to register.

Post as many times as you like to chat, and post as many auctions you find and want to enter.

Side note: Hotmail users are having trouble getting their registration messages. Contact me directly if you cant so I can reset your password and send it to you.


If you’ve won a previous prize, you’re ALLOWED to enter this contest. However, you can only receive one prize pack. The other goes back up for grabs. Say for example you win day two and the grand prize. If you like final one better you can take that instead, but the day one prize will be awarded to someone else. Apologies for the changes, but it’s in the interest of fairness.

In the situation someone posts the same auction, first posted takes precedence.
Auctions must be live (not ended) at the time you post, but can end before the contest ends.

Contest closing tomorrow (Monday) night so Nicola and I can choose the top ten or five. Poll will go up the following morning and stay up for two days – enough time for you to spam all your friends and get them to vote for you.

Good luck!
