Atari X is currently hosting a holiday themed giveaway event that they are calling “Cartridge In A Pear Tree”.
So, if you’ve got some free time to be checking into Twitter between now and Christmas, you could be the lucky winner of some fun retro video game swag.
Let’s take a look at how we win.
Atari “Cartridge In A Pear Tree”
The “Cartridge In A Pear Tree” event will be much like the traditional “The Twelve Days of Christmas” advent calendar.
This festive giveaway event is free to enter. And all you have to do is start collecting your entries by following the AtariX account on Twitter and keep an eye on their daily posts.
You will want to look for the “#cartridgeinapeartree” posts, and you should repost it on your account. They will also post a retro gaming related question in the comments section of each post that you should reply to.
The event will run from December 1st through December 24th, with one post to per day, giving you twenty-four chances to win free Atari gear.
Winner Winner, Christmas Dinner
The final raffle (free giveaway) will be announced on December 28th. And the chosen winner will be able to choose from one of the new Atari Club Members Only jackets, which launched in November.
We reckon that’s the perfect gear to wear while playing the best Atari 2600 games!
There will be additional winners who will receive Atari Club patches and sticker packs. So fear not, there will be plenty of awesome Atari swag to go around.
Again, it’s entirely free to try your luck, and all you gotta do is keep your eye on Twitter for the month of December. Repost when you can, and get an entry in the raffle.
Sounds like a fun way to celebrate the holidays with retro gaming spirit!
