As I announced last week, we’re going to be giving away a copy of my current favorite game with some bonuses. This is something I’m really excited to be able to do, and I hope it will help drive some engagement with all of my followers and to bring in new people!

As you enter this drawing, I’d also love to hear what kinds of things you’d like to see on Fifth Level Nerd in the coming year. Do you want more game reviews? How about movies? Do you want to start seeing videos or how-to posts? Let me know!

The Prize

The prize for winning this drawing is a game set that I’ve gotten many hours of enjoyment from. It includes the following:

  • Zombicide: Black Plague
  • Zombicide: Black Plague – Wulfsburg
  • Zombicide: Black Plague – Hero Box 1
  • Zombicide: Black Plague – NPC-1

The total approximate retail value (given that I can’t find a place selling Hero Box 1 other than eBay) is around $200. I think this is a truly awesome prize. 

I thought about splittin the Hero Box and NPC box into second prizes, but I realized that if someone didn’t already have Zombicide: Black Plague or Zombicide: Green Horde, it wouldn’t do them any good. As a result, I just made the grand prize that much bigger! Oh, and it’ll be shipped to you, free of charge.

How to Enter

Entering the Fifth Level Nerd Birthday Drawing isn’t really that hard. I’ve provided a number of methods to enter, and each one gets you an additional entry in the drawing. That’s right, the more of the following items you complete, the more entries you get!

You can enter the drawing anytime between now (September 24, 2018 @ 12 PM) and October 8, 2018 @ 12 PM. Any entries between those times will be considered for the drawing.

The winner will be announced here as soon as I can confirm that they’ve gotten the prize.


Unfortunately, there are some people who aren’t eligible to receive the grand prize. Mostly these are legal or logistical issues. You are not eligible for this drawing if you:

  • Are the immediate family of Tara or I, or living with our immediate family
  • Want your prize shipped outside the contiguous United States
  • Mess with the drawing

It’s just the way it goes. If you’ve already liked, followed, or subscribed, you’ve already got an entry! Good work!

I hope you all love this drawing!
