Are you a massive fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones? Are you planning to pick up Season 2 of the show when it’s released on Blu-ray and DVD this upcoming Tuesday, February 19th? Do you also just so happen to live in the general area of New York City’s Union Square?
If so, then we have a very cool quickie contest for you to enter!
This Monday evening (February 18) beginning at 8 p.m. a special event is being held at the Union Square Best Buy in New York City in celebration of the midnight release of the Season 2 Blu-ray and DVD. The first 300 people in line will receive an awesome Game of Thrones gift bag, and there will be music, food, and other things to check out as well.
But for TWO of our lucky readers near Union Square, you’ll get special VIP access, which means early entry to the event and a guaranteed gift bag!
Be sure to continue reading for details on what will be going on at the event and how you can enter!
As for the gift bag, that includes cookies by Eleni’s and a sigil scarf.
Those waiting in line to get their hands on Season 2 will be entertained by musician Jason Yang, who will be playing songs from the Game of Thrones soundtrack including his popular violin cover of the main theme. They’ll also get to watch the creation of a life-sized direwolf ice sculpture.
There will also be foods to enjoy from Inn at the Crossroads, the place to go to for Game of Thrones-inspired recipes! Foods include chicken pies, pease porridge, and oatcakes with jam and cheese.
At the stroke of midnight the store will open to the masses, who will find the store decorated with banners, sigils, set photos, costumes, and props from the show. While inside, you’ll even have a chance to wear a replica Night’s Watch coat and take the Black by reciting the Night’s Watch oath (which you can also do online if you missed it!).
So there’s the rundown! It’s hard to measure the amount of awesome going on here if you’re a Game of Thrones fan. I personally will be quite jealous of those who win, as I do not live in NYC and cannot make it.
To Enter: Entering is very simple. All we ask is that you head to the Geeks of Doom Facebook page at facebook.com/geeksofdoom and Like our page. Then head to the comments below, link us to your Facebook page, and share why you need to be at this event.
Rules: Have your entries in by Sunday night at 6 p.m. EST! That’s when we’ll pick our winners. We’ll contact winners to make sure you’ll 100% be there before we forward your names to be added to the list, so be sure to stay close by and get right back to us if something changes and you’re unable to attend.
NOTE: This could be for two individual winners but if you make a strong enough case for you and a friend, we could pick both of you as well. We just want to make sure people who obsess over Game of Thrones are the ones who get to go.
IF YOU WIN, please be sure to take lots of pictures/videos (if able to) and share them via your Facebook or Twitter or wherever you share things so that the rest of us can live vicariously through your experience!
