On January 1, 2012 The Armchair Empire will give away a box that will be gradually filled through December.


Every day in December a new item will be added to the box. Check back daily to see what item was added to the box. Then find the page mentioned in the item description -- use the search box! -- and email us the answer to the very simple question.


You are allowed to email one entry for the featured item. This means you'd be able to enter a maximum of 31 times (since December has 31 days). Playing along throughout the month will increase your chances of winning the whole thing. Or wait until the last minute and spend your New Year's Eve stumbling around The Armchair Empire looking for the answers.


And to be absolutely clear, the answer on each email entry must be correct to be counted!


On January 1, 2012 we will draw, at random, one lucky winner. The contest is open to US and Canadian residents, who are 18-years or older.


Additional Contest Stuff:

- The Armchair Empire reserves the right to eliminate any multiple entries received.
- It is up to individual entrants to provide accurate mailing information to get their prize.
- The Armchair Empire cannot be held responsible for misdirected prizes.
- Entrants agree to release and hold harmless The Armchair Empire, their affiliates and subsidiaries, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, successors, and assigns, from any damage, injury, death, loss, or other liability that may arise from entrant's participation in the Giveaway or the awarding, acceptance, use, or misuse of any prize.
