    Hey peeps! I bought this in Russia while I was on holiday for a friend and they changed their mind about wanting it so I've been left without someone wanting it. So it could be in Russian AND/OR English. It should work outside of Russia as I bought Need For Speed: Rivals at the same shop and it works fine but is in Russian.

    So I thought I should give back to the awesome TPU community. I present to you, a brand new, sealed copy of SimCity;

    Rules:
    -Member since Dec 2013 or earlier
    -Either 150 posts or received 50 Thanks
    -Must not own the game
    -Need to have Origin Software

    To enter, simply explain what you do with your cities once you have played around with them enough, DESTROY THEM or BASK IN THEIR AMAZINGNESS

    Entries close 7pm AEST Saturday 5th April. Winning entry drawn ~10pm AEST Saturday 5th April.
    Random.org will be used to draw the winner.

    I will pm or email the winner the key and if they wish to have the physical copy, simply pay postage and I can organise that.

    First time doing a giveaway so I'm hoping everything is all good.

    maybe I should bold the entry condition :p

    I should probably add that I already have the game myself hence why I'm not keeping it.

    You can't possibly expect tech enthusiasts to READ. Madness.

    If I can't participate, I understand, and I did read but I can't seem to see where I don't qualify :confused: "-Either 150 posts or received 50 Thanks", I have 236 posts, it's either/or so I figured since I have the posts I don't need the thanks:rolleyes:

    Lol, now I feel like an idiot :slap: I read that as, "To simply explain this game, you can either destroy your cities or bask in their amazingness":laugh: I wish my brain didn't have this "simplify" function, it has some bugs in it:banghead: But I would just watch them flourish, I couldn't bring myself to destroy what I've worked for x amount of time...maybe if I could save before :D

    Nice giveaway! Not entering, because I already own the game :) For those interested - it clearly states that the game is in Russian, but I believe you can switch languages in Origin or just add the game using only the CD-KEY and let Origin download the rest.

    Thank you for clarifying that - I can't read Russian, well I can but I don't know what anything means unless it is a borrowed word :p . Tbh I think the game would still be easy to play because of symbols being used a lot in the game rather than text. e.g. oil, ore, coal reserve levels, building types etc.

    Well, you could play the game, but it would be hard reading some of the statistics ;) It's a very good game, EA did some mistakes, but the in it's core - it's a real Sim City game. Fun and games till more people move in..

    Too bad you can't change the language if it is the russian version, otherwise I would have entered. :(

    I am in if possible. I usta build cities in SC2000 that would make killer money but after I got bored I would send some bad weather its way to see what happens.

    This doesn't seem like can't - "If you want to change the language of your installed SimCity game, you can do so by uninstalling and reinstalling your game."
    I might just try it for fun.

    That's just rude. Looking at the price, the game costs the equivalent of 25 Euros. I bought mine for 20 Euros through a shady key place and it was English and has worked no problem.

    Destroy or bask? I'm pretty sure I just slowly fail at managing it until it turns into Detroit. :laugh:

    Haven't you seen The Wire? Baltimore sounds far more terrifying than Detroit. At least they have the RedWings *cheers*
