Ahoy, mateys! Shipwreck here to totally nail down this whole nautical theme. Just wanted to let everyone know that TellTale Games’ Tales of Monkey Island: Launch of the Screaming Narwhal set sail today and to celebrate all the pointing AND the clicking, we are happy to announce a Spectacular Swashbuckling Monkey Giveaway. What’s so spectacular about it? Well, we’re not only giving away the brand-spanking new first episode, but three lucky winners will receive the generous booty of the entire first season of Tales of Monkey Island for the PC. So that’s the spectacular part, but what’s so Swashbuckling Monkey about it? Well, that’s up to you. Submit a photo of yourself either "monkeying around" or "swashbuckling around" and we’ll choose our three favorites to take home the treasures.

Good luck to all and a big thanks to TellTale Games for the prizes.

Note 1: This contest is for the downloadable episodes and not for the DVD version that ships out after the season is over.
Note 2: Winners will be selected and announced on July 15th.

I'm not entering because I pre-ordered the whole season, of course, but I foresee several Captain Morgan ad inspired entrees.

Oh man I LOVED the Monkey Island series. I was thinking of picking this up eventually, but I'd definitely like to try winning a copy first!

This is my Halloween costume a couple years ago (and probably will be doing it again this year!).

Two questions:

1. Can I upload a video?
2. Do you want to watch me hold my breath for 10 minutes in real time, or should I speed up the video?

1. Videos are valid entries.
2. Depends

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

I want this game, but I don't have a credit card. Just have to wait for the Wii version if I don't win this.

I know Steam takes Paypal, and a think Telltale does, as well.

Saying you're really good at Borderlands is the equivalent to saying you suck at videogames.

That puts a genuine closed parenthesis at the end of my colon. :)

I was supposed to be in so many movies! But apparently there were no Mexican pirates in the Carribean so I was cut. Bastard Johnny Depp took my role.

Myself (left) and my brother (right) a few years ago on our annual family fishing trip. Mom spent the week trying not to be seen with us. One of the neighboring cabins cheered us on and even blasted the Pirates of the Caribbean theme from their deck as we would set off for adventure.

My brother liked to ponder aloud whether it was legal to fire upon a ship on public waters flying the Jolly Roger. Fortunately for us, none tried.

Not the best picture we took that year, but the only one I can find at present.
