Twitter Fun & Games
We all love games… so let’s play one!
This is a game to promote the upcoming Amiga 30th Anniversary Event, being held in the UK’s prestigious Peterborough Marriott Hotel on 2 August 2015. Amiga luminaries such as the legendary RJ Mical, the infamous David Pleasance, the larger-than-life Kelly Sumner, and gaming legends Jon Hare, Mev Dinc, Allister Brimble, and others will be gathering to celebrate thirty years of this amazing machine and it’s impact upon us all.

Like any good game, this one involves a challenge, contains rewards, and the difficulty increases the more you play. The rules are straightforward, and so are the rewards.
1) To win, you must take part. Everyone who takes part will qualify for the reward at the end!
2) Taking part is simple: you simply have to ‘share’ the relevant Twitter post before close-of-play.
3) You must share the relevant post ONCE and ONCE only. Double-sharing may disqualify you from receiving the reward.
4) To help get the share count up and increase your rewards, you can promote the game on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and encourage your friends to re-share the Twitter post, too!
5) The more shares before close-of-play, the greater the reward will be!
6) Close of play is Sunday, 31 May 2015, at 23:59.
The reward will be based on the number of unique ‘shares’ on Twitter. We will offer the option to all those taking part, to buy specially-discounted tickets to Amiga30UK for a limited time. The more unique shares we receive in the next week, the greater the discount will be! (Please note: only a limited number of VIP banquet spaces are available, but plenty of half-day places remain. Sharing can help others, in any case, and we appreciate any and all efforts to promote the event as any extra revenue will help make it the event the best possible experience for everyone.)
Please note the discount applies only to newly-issued tickets, purchased at the close of the game.
Game over; you lost. No discount for you! Perhaps we’ll give you another shot in a week or two.
Well, you almost made it to the end of the first level. Then you jumped into a pit of spikes; that wasn’t very clever. A mediocre effort at best. Still, you tried, so we’ll throw you a bone (2% discount)
You made it easily through the first level, but then struggled through the second. Then you died. (5% discount.)
Well, you tried your best, and cleared a number of levels. Your co-op partner was useless, however, and kept getting you killed. So 10% for you, nothing for them.
Kudos! You made some real progress, you made it to the end of the first world, but now it’s getting harder to progress. (You’re up to 12%)
You made brisk time through the first world, defeated the end level boss, but then it all went wrong in world two. (We’ll call it 13%)
The first, second and third world bosses have now been reduced to a mushy, gooey paste, but can you make it through to the end of the game? (15%)
Four bosses down, just three to go! (16%)
Five bosses down, two more left. (17%)
Six down, you can taste that the sweet taste of total victory is near! (18%)
YOU DID IT! WAY TO GO! We KNEW you would make it! (Well, actually, we’re quite astonished you made it this far, to be honest – but EVEN SO.) A full TWENTY PERCENT OFF has been well and truly earned!
Wow! ALL SECRET BONUS LEVELS COMPLETED, TOO. What will be your additional reward? Erm, well, come to the show and find out!
