Mega Giveaway Day 2 – Atari Centipede Board Game

Mega Giveaway Day 2 – Atari Centipede Board Game

Can I reiterate how excited we are about this year’s Mega Giveaway? We have so many prizes that we debated the different ways to get them to our readers. Ultimately, we decided to approach it the way you would anything you love: savor it. Sip wine, take small bites of dessert and… spread the giveaways out over a longer period of time.

Day 1 started with a Hatchimals, an incredibly hot toy for kids. Day 2 hits a wider target, crossing generations. It’s not just a board game (which is cool by itself) but the theme is a throwback to my childhood. It’s Atari’s Centipede from IDW Games.

2 or 4 players play opposite sides in this world of the classic Atari arcade game with one side controlling the Gnome, exploring the forest and trying to defeat the Centipede. The other side, naturally, takes on the role of the Centipede! You’ll see Atari’s Centipede board game in our upcoming gift guide showcasing gift ideas for pop culture enthusiasts so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, let our sponsors know how much you appreciate their participation in our holiday promotion then enter to win a copy!
