TAT's BattleSphere Drawing! - The Atari Times

TAT's BattleSphere Drawing!

Win a free copy of BattleSphere!
by Gregory D. George

August 1, 2000
Note: The BattleSphere drawing has passed. To find out what happened, please read the transcript which can be found on the main Jaguar page.

BattleSphere is finally here! Now you can blast those lousy Slith fighters with vengeance... or can you?

Many unfortunate Jaguar owners were not able to get even one copy of this fantastic game, while others managed to get two. There will be another run of BattleSphere carts in the future, but only Scatologic knows how long that will be. (Probably sooner than we all think!)

I ordered and received two BattleSphere cartridges. I had plans to buy a 2nd Jaguar and link them together someday. Well, by the time I get around to buying another Jag and find someone to play it, the 2nd run will have come and gone. So, here I am, sitting on a completely unused, unplayed, and unopened copy of BattleSphere. In fact, it's still in the original bubble wrap!

So what should I do with this extra cart? Sell it on Ebay? No. Should I give it away for free?

No one could afford to lose $69.95 dollars on this deal. So it won't be for free, but almost...Therefore, I am officially announcing The Atari Times BattleSphere Drawing!

Here are the important details of the drawing:

The Rules of TAT-BD.

1.You must not already own a copy of BS. This drawing is for people who have yet to experience the full-flavored greatness of this game.

2. If you meet the above qualification, send $1 for every chance you wish to have. Every dollar you send will increase your chances of  winning. If you send in 10 dollars, and 90 people send in $1, your chance of winning would be 1 in 9. The more you send, the better your chances are. Make sense?

3. I paid $69.95 dollars for BattleSphere. Every penny above $69.95 dollars will donated to diabetes research, in honor of Scatologic.

If I was in this for the money I would have auctioned the game on Ebay!

4. The drawing will be held in The Atari Times Chatroom shortly after we reach $70. Announcements will be made.

TAT-BD is a way for us both to win. I truly want to get this game in the hands of a deserving Atari fan who was not able to get a first run copy.
