WIN: When World of Warcraft meets Coffee..

January 11, 2010
Unless, like me, you’ve spent the last week or so pretty much living in bed, it’s been hard to ignore the Snowmageddon that’s been sweeping the nation. And in a situation like that, there’s nothing better to do than sit down, with a hot drink, and play video games.

There’s probably other ways of spending the time, but it wouldn’t be useful to talk about those when we’re about to talk about the aforementioned activities, as BritishGaming has got some unique World of Warcraft Raiding Kits to give away courtesy of Starbucks.

These special packages consist of a limited edition WoW themed mug, a USB cup warmer, and samples of Starbucks’ upcoming instant coffee, VIA, which is scheduled to be released in March. There have only been 25 of these mugs made, so you’ve a chance at getting a rather unique item.

Unfortunately, until the kits arrived at BGB Towers I forgot that I don’t like coffee, making me possibly the worst choice to review it. Thankfully, scientific studies I’ve just made up state that Dads tend to like coffee, and I happen to have one of those. The reliable verdict from him is generally positive, and if you’re looking for an instant coffee that tastes more like real coffee, it certainly fulfils that criteria and does what it sets out to. More significantly, it’s got lots of caffeine, and that’s all that truly matters in life.

To be in with a chance of winning one of the two kits, simply answer this question.

The mug shows a Hearthstone from World of Warcraft on it. What does a Hearthstone do in the game?
a) Teleport you to a home place
b) Attach a thunderhand to your attack
c) Confuse editors unfamiliar with the game into thinking someone stuck an additional H in to the word but with no idea which one of the H’s they should take out

Send your answer that you probably just found on Google you cheating git in to an email with your full name and address to – with the subject title “Starbucks”.

You have until 7pm GMT on January 14th 2010 to enter. 2 people with the correct answer will be chosen at random to win kits. No cash alternative. UK residents only, employees of, Starbucks and Activision Blizzard are illegible from this competition. 1 entry per person.

If you’re a company that has a product you’d like us to give away with a tenuous link to the video games industry or would just like to shower our wonderful audience with goodies.
