Trying to Buy Friends! *Updated*

Some people give things away to conduct social experiments (see above), some give things away because they have too much and want to share it with others, and some people give things away because they desperately want to be popular. I am one of the latter. So in a bid to be more popular I’m going to start doing some giveaways. It looks like it has worked for people like NewbieDm and Matt James so I’m going to see if it will work for me. You might ask “don’t both of those guys have tons of really useful content on their websites and are huge contributors to the game in general, isn’t that why they are popular?” and to that I would say “Shut up!”. No seriously I understand that my site has only 11 posts thus far (not counting this one) and not all of them are all that useful, and that most people earn their readers and only supplement their numbers by doing random giveaways. I’m doing this because A. it is fun, and I have gotten tons of free stuff in my life and giving a little from time to time is always fun, and #2. I’m doing this site because I want feedback on my ideas and 11 visitors a week really isn’t drumming up much in the way of comments. So here comes the short cut.

This week I have teamed up with my bank account to give away a four pack of gaming paper! It can be either squares or hexes I’ll leave it up to the winner to decide. For those who don’t know what gaming paper is, I’ll give you the skinny. Gaming paper is disposable battle mat paper, no special pens are needed, no clean up, and no mess. It’s really easy to use, and it’s huge. Each sheet is 30 square feet. That’s a lot of dungeon you can fit on there. I was going to give away a set of Harrowing Halls dungeon tiles but Gator Games and NewbieDM beat me to it. I don’t want to totally copy them so I decided gaming paper would be the next best thing. I just decided I would throw a copy of Hammerfast on the pile. So The winner of this weeks giveaway will get to choose either 4 rolls of gaming paper or a copy of Hammerfast.

The Rules are very simple. All you have to do is follow me on twitter @thadeousC and leave a comment on this page with your twitter name. I’ll pick the winner at random next Monday the 15th of March. I will contact the winner Via direct message through twitter and later announce it to the general public on the site. Un-following right after you sign up will disqualify you since I wont be able to send a DM.

Good luck everyone!

  1. Love the idea of giving away gaming paper to a lucky twitter follower… plays2much_DnD us now following you :)

  2. @countingku here.

    Good luck with your contest, sir.

    I would suggest you offer an RSS feed for your blog in general, makes it a lot easier to follow a blog when the new posts pop in your reader.

  3. Just created a Twitter account just for all my D&D activities. Your contest is what pushed me over the edge. I really enjoy Gaming Paper. I use it with my 5-year old son to conduct clashes between our growing collection of miniatures. Quality material.
    I really enjoyed your article about interviewing players and DMs. I find myself in the same position. All my friends that game are all over the country now. I am still looking for a good D&D table in Central New York. Look forward to reading more from you.

  4. @eugenekatz – getting in on the ground level :)
    Thinking about it, I don’t really need gaming paper that much (got a flip mat), but hey, it’s a contest! Probably would just hand it over to my DM if I win.

  5. @guedo79 is now following you.

    Nice site, btw.

  6. @kallahan11 , however don’t add me to the contest, I work for Gamingpaper. Just trying to drum up some support.

  7. Bill_Curtis_42

    Nice to follow you.

  8. Well, I like free things… :D
    @SeiferTim

  9. HAHA, I love how I randomly found your blog via a link and *BLAM* my name was there! Anything I can do to steer people your way- let me know :)

    @matt_james_rpg

    Oh, and if you happen to pick my name randomly, I will pass the prize on and beef it up for anyone who signs up on Loremaster.org and mentions this reply ;)

  10. Consider yourself followed. (Look over your shoulder, you might see me there.)

  11. @Jarza_Quinntes
    Giving away stuff seems to be the easiest and quickest way to get your name/site out there for everyone to notice seeing as almost no one will ever pass up the possibility for something free. Getting peoples attention is the easy part keeping it is the hard part.

    • Well I don’t need their full attention, I just need it for about five to ten minutes a week or so. Is that any easier?

  12. I’m following you now as @atras126 , you can blame Matt James for that.

  13. @jmpress, entering the contest. Don’t forget that you also have to be following people back to DM them!

    • I don’t think that will be a problem, I don’t really mind following those who follow me, I’m no celebrity just a guy who likes D&D and free stuff :)

  14. I’m in for free stuff! Now following you with the twitter name @DrOct

  15. Hey, I’ll follow for free stuff! @steve_the_dm … and probably even check out your site…

  16. I’ll follow you for a shot at some Gaming Paper. Been meaning to pick some up, just haven’t yet.

    Following you with @TehGecko

  17. Following you with @TehGecko

    D&D and Free Stuff. It doesn’t get much better than that.

    • Wow, got impatient on the first comment. Now I’ve left three. Too bad I don’t have anything better to say.

  18. Subscribed to your twitter feed AND sites RSS feed! @Saeblundr wants a book!

    I followed @Matt_James_RPG advice, as he is the better James Brother.

  19. Following with @alvarlux

    I love how the DnD community is using Twitter these days.

  20. Hey, I appreciate the willingness to shell out for followers. I’m game! I was looking for some D&D people to follow anyway, you just bought yourself a friend! :)

    @Macadosche is following you now.

  21. Haha, great idea, I may have to steal it just to get feedback for my blog too! ;-) I’ve been following you on Twitter for awhile, but now I’ll add your blog’s RSS to my reader…

    • Ha, so excited to comment, I forgot my Twitter handle: @awmyhr (you’ll find me w/that handler pretty much everywhere I hang…)

    • Don’t worry about stealing the idea, I took it from someone else and no one has come after me for it yet :)

  22. Gimme free stuff! :-)

    @reyemile following you already.

  23. As I said on Twitter, consider me bought. And I have subscribed to the blog, can’t wait to see what else you come up with.

    I’m @allgeektout.

  24. Hey there! Good luck with your contest. I have one on my blog as well (for Martial Power 2) – we’ll see how well they work out, maybe compare notes and such :)

    @DMSamuel on twitter – I’m following you.

    my blog is 4egaming.wordpress.com – check it out!

  25. Enjoying the follow so far. You are not annoying or too weird…

  26. @Canageek here! I’d like to enter the contests for a copy of Hammerfast. I must say gaming paper strikes me as being very unenvironmentally friendly compared to a battlemat. Also I already have 3 flipmats.
    –Canageek

  27. I’m @semifamous.
    And I like to win free stuff.

    You know what might be cool? Two winners? Let the first winner pick their prize, then give the second winner the second option (like the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right?)

    I’d pick the book, because we just use Hallmark wrapping paper instead of gaming paper. It has the nice 1″ grid lines on the inside. They’re light and good for drawing on/around, but visible enough when you’re moving your mini.

    • I was going to give away both if I hit 100 entries, but it looks like that won’t happen. What will happen though is which ever prize is not given away will be the prize of my next giveaway. I’ll probably start that one in about a week or so. But right now the entries are just over 30 so if you want me to give away both you better get the word out.

  28. @mrfb is now following you.

  29. I do like free stuff and interesting people on Twitter to read. So consider @wolfsamurai signed up

  30. I am literally drooling for a copy of Hammerfast as I’ve heard great things. I was already following you! =)

    *wipes drool*

  31. Yippee. @icosahedron here, always interested in good D&D tweets. Consider yourself followed.

  32. Good luck with the contest, please don’t add my name as I have cases of the stuff.
    Twitter @Dra8er

  33. @senorbob1 is now following you. Great site and thanks for the tons of cool stories! Keep it up bro!

  34. Can I enter?
    I like free stuff.

  35. Free stuff is good. Winning free stuff is better!

  36. You might just want to try http://www.rentafriend.com/ its easier. Oh wait are you already on there?
