Joyswag: Win a trip for two to PAX, courtesy of HotHead Games and DeathSpank


Update: Congratulations to grand prize winner Stefan, and to the eight first prize winners!

He is DeathSpank: Defender of Justice. Vanquisher of Evil. Hero to the Downtrodden. Guy who's footing the bill for you and a friend, loved one, or really lucky stranger to attend PAX Prime!

But who is this "you" we speak of? Well, it could be you, provided you're the winner of this epic giveaway brought to you by DeathSpank's gracious overlords at Hothead Games and your pals here at Joystiq. Otherwise it will be someone else, who may or may not laugh at your misfortune -- that jerk! Don't be the one who that jerk potentially laughs at -- heed the rules, cross your fingers and enter for your chance to score free airfare, lodging, attendance to PAX, and the possibility of being referred to as "Sir" or "Miss" for a change. That, and the ultimate honor: being able to say, "I'm with DeathSpank!"

To enter this giveaway:

1. Visit and search for "the Artifact" image (pictured below) that's been hidden on one of the pages there. The Artifact will be clearly visible and looks like this:

2. Locate and copy your own unique "Joystiq Code" that appears beneath the Artifact image.

3. Return to this giveaway post and paste your code in a comment to enter for your chance to win.
