Just like you, we get all sorts of gifts around the holidays here at Joystiq HQ. Probably unlike you, we don't keep any of them (even the good ones!). With that in mind, we've got five days of regift giveaways planned, where you get some free stuff (and we get some of our HQ real estate back).

Today, we're offering up this copy of the Halo Interactive Strategy Board Game. Get this, it's a board game, based on a video game, with DVD video functionality. What will they think of next?

Here's how you win:
  • Leave a comment with your favorite Halo-inspired pick-up line (sample: "If we stick together long enough I'll explode.")
  • You must be 18 years or older and a resident of the US or Canada (excluding Quebec)
  • Limit 1 entry per person
  • This entry period ends at 8:30 pm ET on Thursday, January 1st. We'll randomly select 1 winner at that time to receive the Halo Interactive Strategy Board Game ($50). Please check your e-mail!
