Perhaps you were planning on pre-ordering Gears of War: Judgment? Perhaps you’ve always thought to yourself that going to the world’s largest gaming show would be downright bitchin’? What a coincidence then that you could kill two birds with one competition; or should that be two Bairds with one competition given the circumstances. I’m here all week; luckily for you it’s Friday.

The folks at BT Games have partnered with Xbox and Microsoft South Africa to bring you the chance of a lifetime. All you need to do is pre-order Gears of War: Judgment from BT Games, either in store or online. Once you’ve done that you’ll receive a link to an online competition form. Fill that in and then play the waiting game until the end of March, when one lucky Gears fan will be chosen at random to fly over to Cologne, Germany to experience Gamescom 2013.

Did we mention that the whole shebang will be paid for, including return flights, transfers, accommodation and dinner? Did we mention they’ll also throw in $5, 000.00 spending money so that you can buy mountains of gaming paraphernalia, beer and knackwurst? Because’ you’ll get all of that.

The competition is only open to South African residents aged 18 and over. You’ll also have to keep your pre-order till slip safe so that you can show it to Microsoft to claim your prize. The competition started yesterday (07 March) and will end on 21 March. A single winner will be notified by email on 31 March.

Good luck! And if you win be sure to let us know so that you can meet up with whichever of the NAG staff will be attending Gamescom this year. Also you can meet up with us in order to give us huge high-fives and hugs for letting you know about the competition in the first place. You’re welcome.
