Summer of amiibo 2016: Week 3
« on: July 07, 2016, 09:10:00 AM »

We're giving away an amiibo every week of summer! Welcome to Week 3: Chibi Robo! Update: Congratulations to the winner!

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/contest/42983/summer-of-amiibo-2016-week-3

Nintendo keeps releasing amiibo, but you don't have to break open your wallet to get your hands on them. Why not win a free amiibo figure from Nintendo World Report? We'll be giving them away all summer long!

Every week we'll run a different contest for a different Amiibo prize. It might be a caption contest. You might need to answer trivia. Or you might need to tune into a podcast for the secret keyword for that week's random drawing! Make sure you check back each week to enter into that week's particular contest, and to get a sneak preview at the Amiibo prizes to come! (Winners of previous weeks of the NWR's Summer of Amiibo event are not eligible for subsequent prizes.)


This week's prize: Chibi Robo! This week's contest: a NEWS QUIZ!

Send an e-mail with your answers to the following five questions to contest@nintendoworldreport.com with the subject line "Summer of Amiibo Week 3". A winner will be selected at random from the correct entries!

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.
