UPDATE 2: [2013/12/08 03:04 PM EST] Last night between 12:00 AM and 2:00 AM EST, I received a ton of emails, all from various free email services, that have identical sender signatures, as well as spammy sender addresses. I have zero tolerance for people who attempt to abuse the contest, so I will discard ALL of those entries.

If you sent a contest entry on 2013/12/08 between 12:00 AM and 2:00 AM EST (5 AM - 7 AM GMT), and aren't a spammer, please resend your entry. I will extend the contest by one day (2013/12/09 11:59 PM EST) to allow resubmissions.

UPDATE: [2013/12/03 05:13 PM EST] I posted a clarification for question #2 in response to some of the emails I have received. If you think you may have submitted an incorrect answer and this clarifies it for you, you may resend your answer for question #2. I'll combine the emails for the final count.

Hello, I'm GerbilSoft. And today, I'm going to make history.

I'm putting up TWO Sonic games that says I know more than you.

So if you're smart enough, fast enough, and if you've got the guts, you can Win GerbilSoft's Sonic Games!

Two winners will get the opportunity to select one of these three games:


Official Rules:
  • Participants will send their answers to the five questions listed below to [email protected], with subject: "Sonic Retro Thanksgiving Giveaway". Entries must be sent by 2013/12/08 11:59 PM EST. [DON'T POST YOUR ANSWERS IN THIS THREAD!]
  • The giveaway is open to all legal residents (13 years of age or older) of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia (except ACT). Other countries may be eligible; check your local regulations.
  • Only one entry per person; make sure your answers are correct before you send your email!
  • Sonic Retro, Sega Retro, and SEGAbits staff are not eligible to participate.
  • Two winners will be randomly selected from all entries that have the correct answers for all 5 trivia questions. If no one got all five correct, then two will be selected for 4 out of 5, etc. If no one got any answers right, then you all suck and the contest will start over with new questions.
  • Winners will be announced within a week after the contest closes, and they will be contacted with regards to what game they would like to receive.
  • Prizes will be new games delivered to the winners using Amazon.


Win GerbilSoft's Sonic Games!

  • What was the original name of the Sonic Retro Wiki?
  • What was the first official Sonic game released for a non-Sega platform (excluding PC and single-game handhelds)? [CLARIFICATION: "Single-game handhelds" refers to a handheld device that can only play a single game; that is, it doesn't have removable cartridges or discs.]
  • What celebrity got the chance to play a Sonic 2 prototype on the TV game show Nick Arcade?
  • What Sonic 1 zone was originally going to follow Green Hill Zone, until the developers decided it would be too difficult as the second zone?

Nothing to lose, although I do already own both Lost Worlds.

I guess my options are Mario and Sonic or another copy of Lost World for the 3DS so I can have the satisfaction of burning it.

I don't own a Wii U, so owning the 3DS version would be cool. If I end up winning the Wii U version of Lost World, I could give it to a friend and he would let me play it on his Wii U at some point. If I ever get a Wii U, it probably wouldn't be until many years later and by then, Lost World probably would be cheap.

UPDATE: [2013/12/03 05:13 PM EST] It seems that the phrase "single-game handheld" in Question #2 is causing some confusion. This is referring to a handheld device that can only play a single game; that is, it doesn't support removable cartridges or discs. If you think you may have submitted an incorrect answer and this clarifies it for you, you may resend your answer for question #2. I'll combine the emails for the final count.

I have one specific title in mind, but I'll take any valid answer here, as long as Big is not a main character or a story-relevant NPC.

I also don't want the games so I just submitted a bunch of wrong answers. I might post them in the thread after the contest is done, but no sooner because
