How to Enter

Attached to this post is a wafflecopter giveaway (some people call it a rafflecopter but we all know it’s about waffles). You must follow the instructions in the wafflecopter to enter. I will check so make sure you actually do whatever the waffercopter tells you. Obey the wafflecopter!

Note there are only 3 winners to this giveaway and they are Ray, Monika and Steven. The Wafflecopter seems to be messing up and showing 5. For the record the other two were chosen by the random selector but upon checking these two did not obey the wafflecopter and actually do the task they said they did. They were simple rules. You should have followed them!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Winners will be selected randomly by the wafflecopter and emailed by me.


  • One entry per person. (I can tell when you enter with a billion different email addresses)
  • Make sure you use your real email address in the wafflecopter or I won’t be able to reach you!
  • There is no bribing the random.org generator that will select the winner but owners of this site do accept courtesy pies and cakes as they are hobbits and generally always hungry.
  • You can enter if you personally own these expansion packs but plan to give it to a friend or family member as a gift so long as they do use it. We purchased the expansion packs with our own money so we just really want to make sure that it gets used!
  • My favorite color is yellow. Not really a rule, just thought you’d like to know.
  • Winner will be contacted by email and given two days to respond before a new winner is selected (again … we just want to make sure we’re giving the code to someone who will use it and not be lost in an email box forever.)
  • Entries are welcome to all players of LOTRO who reside on planet Earth. Extraterrestrials may not apply because we hate you.
