News Round Up: World of Warcraft Monopoly, Contest Winners, MvP Posters, and more!
As promised, we have the winners from
last week's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning giveaway
! We also have the news accrued from the past several days, including my personal favorite: StarCraft 2 RISK and World of Warcraft Monopoly. Those are my two favorite board games, so having them paired up with two of my favorite digital games seems a bit surreal.
In other news, we are still looking for
a PHP developer and a sales manager
. We are doing interviews all week, so make sure to get your information in if you want a chance to work here at Wowhead!

Get Married In-game, Set a World Record
Over at ZAM,
the whole staff is participating in setting a world record on February 14th
on RIFT. Anyone who gets hitched on Valentine's Day in RIFT will be helping RIFT set a world record of the most virtual marriages in a single day in a video game. Five of the lucky newly weds will even earn some special accolades from the RIFT devs themselves.
The idea of a MMORPG being in the book of world records is beyond cool to me and so is coming together as a community on a singular day, so I'm all for it. You can even get married using a trial version of the game.

As an added bonus, comment in this post how online gaming has played a role in your relationship (or friendships, if you're going stag this holiday)! One winner will receive their choice of a Blizzard store pet.

Wowhead's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Sweepstakes
This giveaway is now closed. We will be emailing and announcing winners on Monday.
If you visit Wowhead, you're probably like me and you love RPGs. This means you have more than likely heard of the upcoming
Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
--an open-world RPG of an immense scale that lets you define your own destiny and story (check out the demo
, if you're interested). It also means you more than likely want your own copy.
And if that's the case, then I have some awesome news for you.
We have six
special edition Reckoning game bundles
which include maps, cards, and the game itself to give away at Wowhead this week and next. To top it off, we're giving away a grand prize of
a collector's edition of Reckoning
which includes everything in the special edition along with some added bonuses: a 12.5" troll figure and a lithograph signed by Ken Rolston! As I'm told, only 700 of these unique sets have been produced, so this is pretty sweet.
We'll be giving them away at 12:01PM PDT next Friday, February 10th, 2012. To enter to win, all you have to do is the following...

2012 WoW TCG and Scott Pilgrim Giveaway
Giveaway is now closed: thanks for all of the creative entries! We will be announcing winners soon after we read through everything.
2012 is here and while the first week of the year comes to a close, there's one thing everyone wants to know about: New Year's resolutions. From in-game to the real world, every year millions of people make them--and then either stick to them with admirable resolve or crumble under pressure once the holidays are over.
Thanks to the generous folks at
, I've even got some gifts to hand out to those who answer
well. Ten commenters will receive one
Rinoceronte Branco Lanoso
each while another ten commenters will receive one
ball each. It gets even better, too; as an added bonus, the first five winners of the rhino code will also receive a box set of
Scott Pilgrim novels
which includes a poster as their grand prize!
Reply to this post and tell me what your New Year's resolutions are--either in-game or out--to be entered to win.

Contest is closed, check back tomorrow afternoon for winners!

SWTOR Beta Key Giveaway
Star Wars: The Old Republic is coming out next month and the beta has been in gear for quite some time. Many of the Wowhead staff members, myself included, have spent their share of time with the force lately and loved it. Unfortunately, the beta has been hard to get into for many fans beyond a weekend stress test. This week, however, we've got a chance for you to get in easily!
Our parent site,
, is giving away 25,000 beta keys for SWTOR on a first come, first serve basis. Yes,
keys. We'd love for you to support them by entering their giveaway and trying out SWTOR. All you have to do is sign-up for a ZAM account and you get a free key instantly sent to you--while supplies last, of course.
Please note that this is a key for their next testing phase, which will start shortly--BioWare will be emailing you an invite based on the email you redeem the code with.

Oh, and as a disclaimer: this post isn't the place to start SWTOR versus WoW wars. Save that for another website; we love all kinds of MMORPGs here at Wowhead.

Deathwing Kill Video
I made this a few days ago for Tankspot--it's just me killing Deathwing on the final encounter of Dragon Soul from this week's PTR. I realized I never shared it, though!
A few words on the fight: first off, it's really fun. It looks boring when you see a video, because it's just generally boring to watch videos anyway; the gist of the fight is that you gain buffs, you have to dynamically jump to the platform

Interview with NFL Player Chris "Warcraft" Kluwe of the Minnesota Vikings
Everyone was shocked to learn Mila Kunis dabbled in Azeroth in her downtime a couple years back. After all, how could a celebrity manage World of Warcraft and being famous?
We seem to forget that celebrities are just like everyone else--and that means a lot of "famous" people play WoW. From sports professionals to famous actors, WoW's digital world is home to a lot of different characters both in-game and out. It's part of the allure.
So that's where this feature comes in. We're looking behind the curtains of characters and seeing who actually plays them, hopefully with some interesting results. For our first interview, I tracked down Chris Kluwe right before the NFL season starts and asked him about his gaming habits, particularly the one that earned him his very own WoW TCG card after his character.
Watch out though, if you're alliance--he seems a little bit of a troll. A Troll rogue, that is!
Q: Can you give a little background on yourself, who you are and what you do?

League of Legends Sweepstakes
It's been a while since we here at Wowhead have hosted an old-fashioned sweepstakes. Thanks to the wonderful folks at
, though, that's all about to change. From this weekend to next, we're giving away prizes--all in support of
League of Legends
What's League of Legends, you might ask? Simple: one of the best games out right now. It's been taking the gaming community by storm recently and even the pro-gaming circuits are playing it. With dozens of champions and intense gameplay, LoL is one of those games that's easy to get into but incredibly hard to master. In other words, it's addictive--and what gaming's all about. You don't have to take my word for it, either;
it's free to play so you can start whenever you'd like
and see if it appeals to you.
Anyway, about that sweepstakes we're hosting. Thanks to Riot and Razer, every day for the next seven days, we

Did you know that it's Wowhead's fifth birthday this weekend?
It's hard to believe, but we've spent five long years of being one of the biggest World of Warcraft resources and working our hardest to tell you what you need to know to bring your a-game to Azeroth. The site has come a long way from its talent calculator days and remains stronger than ever--thanks largely to its awesome userbase and determined staff. You guys have made it all possible and that alone is worth a celebration.
Luckily for you, like any good birthday bash, we're celebrating with presents all week. But instead of presents for the birthday site, they're for you guys. We've hooked up with

Community Roundup: 4.1 Guides, AddOns, and the WoW Movie
Sundays are for sleeping in and watching Netflix in your pajamas all day. Also see: alt raids. Oh wait, that's just my Sunday. Your Sunday may be significantly more busy and involve more Mother's Day if you're celebrating.
Anyway, as a new Sunday feature, we have a round-up of some of the web's more interesting World of Warcraft posts over the past week or so.
