Hello and welcome to my Dirt2 and MW2 giveaway, after my successful (imo) SH giveaway as seen here >> Shattered Horizon


PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY!!!



As per guidance, this giveaway will be in the form of a competition. It won’t be mentally challenging just a simple “spot the ball” type compo.

Compo format

I will tomorrow (Mon 24 Jan 2011 approx 1500 GMT) provide a picture, to my liking, in post #2. On that picture there will be a grid. Somewhere in that grid are hidden 2 games. yaaaaaaaaaay.

As simple as it sounds, just give your guess as to which grid position you think you will find the two freebies.

Just to expand on this a little bit, within each of the grid squares, there will be four more blocks. You will need to provide the row/column/and block for a correct hit.

RUUUUUUULES as at 09:20 Wed 26 Jan

1. You are allowed 2 guesses (1 per game) every calendar day since your current guess.

2. NO REPEAT POSTS WITHIN 1 CALENDAR DAY OF YOUR CURRENT GUESS.

3. NO EDITING POST.

4. You can post comments of course, just NOT repeat guesses within 1 calendar day, thank you.


For Example...

My guess is
1. C/4/3 [Row C Column 4 Block 3] and
2. D/7/1 [etc]





As soon as I see a correct hit, the winner and game will be revealed and the Steam Key is theirs.

Topic will be checked daily and i will state which post I have checked up to (so editing a previous post will not be checked!!! and guesses before the picture is up will be ignored)

Compo will be open until both games are won.

I hope you enjoy.

gl

Steve.


Caveat

I am doing this with the intention that the games are registered with Steam immediately as per my Shattered Horizon thread.
To that end, once the winner has been contacted and given the Steam key for their game, I WILL post the key for a short period. This key WILL get used. I am just ensuring the winner uses the key as I intended. No Ifs, No Buts Thank you

it is fairly simple, and tbh if you don't understand then you haven't taken the time out to read the OP.

To save you from any trouble, I will omit any of your posts towards this comp. Happy?
I merely am saying that from first glance, people would think this contest would be complicated until they read the bottom. If you feel you have to omit my past or further posts then that's your call.

If it helps, My guesses are:

E/3/2
D/1/4

Let me know if this doesn't count
