Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls. I have great news! Good man "bluedotlounge" said he will be able to contribute to the raffle this year.

"AND YES, there will be giveaways. And tell racing fans to note: The first 5 donors over $10 will get a Forza 4 demo code today before the demo is available on XBLA on Monday."

Stay tuned! Keep up the good work everyone!

That's awesome, what bluedotlounge accomplished last year was amazing. I'm trying my hand at a small raffle as well. My hope is that it will atleast make more people aware of this thread and get more people involved.

Question for the drink expert:

I LOVE using Red Bull as a mixer with vodka and whatnots. Is this something that is worth mixing with alcohol?

Well DrMunkee, I'm not the most experienced bartender (zero xp) but I can tell you what Cocaine tastes like and maybe you can think of what to pair it with.

Cocaine comes in 2 flavors, spicy and mild.

Spicy:hot:: Has a hot, spicy flavor and is still very sweet. It's got a nice cherry taste with no twang that you'd get from Red Bull. The hotness isn't quite cinnamon or hot sauce. It's just got a slight "burning" factor when you swallow or smell the drink. It's my favorite because it tastes great and the hotness "wakes your senses".

I almost think of the hotness comes like Buffalo Rock Ginger Ale, which has that same burning sensation that I love.

Mild:cold:: Also like cherry without an aftertaste or heat in the taste. It's good and "easier" to drink.

I know that doesn't help, but I've sent an e-mail out to my account representative from Cocaine if she had any tips I could pass along to you.

I appreciate it sir! Thanks! It is probably worth a shot.

Awesome! What rules you thinking about putting out this year? Wanted to make sure we are on the same page, since I know you run this raffle with your articles as well. You are Miguel, correct?


AND FOR EVERYONE - I edited the original post again. Feel free to change anything. I just tried to clean it up and point out what people want to look at.

Good work everyone! Only a couple of more weeks. I'll start a section where we can get everyones XBLA and PSN ( and Wii code, if necessary) so we can hook up if we get bored.

My gut idea is similar to last year's:

My Donors: Every $2 you donate = 1 raffle entry
CAG Team Members: Every $10 you raise = 1 raffle entry

AND THIS TIME, I will make sure that if there are more items than donors & CAG team members, every donor and team member will at least get one prize each.


EDIT:

I saw my PR buddy from 2K today to look at The Darkness II and she said the office sent over a mystery box; we'll see!
Ignition Entertainment is also on board, starting off with 5 codes for Mercury Hg

This is the first year I'm not part of Team CAG :'( but I felt it more important to try and get more people into this on Giantbomb as no one seems to talk about. I just got a box today from Valve full of some really sweet stuff. Good luck to all of you and lets raise as much money as possible!

Team CAG - you are doing a really good job with the fundraising and the swag. While I am on Team GameEnthus this year, looking forward to playing with all of you and just randomly babbling during Halo at 5am in the morning (will be so tired).

Also glad to see the other teams being mentioned and all of us working together.

Little more then a week until the event, LETS DO THIS!

If my Uncharted 3 or Arkham City review copies don't arrive by Friday, then I will throw out the personal challenge of *attempting* to play Rocksmith for 24 hours PROVIDED that our team makes it to $5000 before Saturday.

Wanted to pop in since I'm not on CAG as much. I'm pushing Extra Life hard. I'm up to almost $200 total. (though $150 is from three donations).

Have a donation jar going at work which isn't in yet but only has $20 to date. (less than $1 per person, cheap bastards).

I'll be on Twitter and can be followed at HellM0nkey. Will be posting what I'm playing and where (what system) so anyone can join up. Feel free to follow and I'll return it so we can cross promote.
