Was clearing out some old boxes and found a box of X-Men toys from the first film (figures, blackbird jet) and I remember I won all that gear in a magazine competition.

I also remember winning a pack of Crayola coloured pens for getting a joke printed in Casper the friendly ghost magazine :lol:

What are the best (Not money) things you have won?

I guess that time I won 30 Xbox games for covering myself in flour and tomato ketchup.

Can't believe they gave you a prize just for doing what Denster does every Saturday night.

An Xbox 360 from Pepsi Max would probably have to be my best win that I can recall.

An LED build-your-own skateboard from McDonald’s that went straight on eBay.

Various NowTV passes, also from MD.

I also won The Recruit on DVD from Official PlayStation 2 magazine for having the best photo caption. Oh, how they laughed (or nobody else entered, you decide).

Was born a straight, white man, so that's been pretty sweet.

I won the lottery of conception. It's all been downhill since then.

I've won a few small odds and ends over the years, but it was my brother who was always the lucky bastard when it came to competitions.

He won a complete satellite dish & sky setup when the service was just getting started around 1990'ish, then a few years later, he won Colin McRae's racing bike in a prize draw at the Rally GB show in Cheltenham.

A big chocolate cake from a raffle when I was 12. I can't remember the last time I won anything else.

I won a hamper in a raffle at work last Christmas. There was booze in, so I consider that an absolute win.

Won tickets to see Waitress a few weeks after it opened in London, which was great fun :wub: and then before that the next best thing was winning the big Rock Raiders HQ set from Legoland :slol:

EDIT: Heck oh yeah I won a trip to the Fast and Furious (the fourth film) premiere in London, too. Got Paul Walker's autograph and Vin Diesel walked into me.

I won some horrible third party PS2 controller by finishing in the top 20 in an online tournament playing some gooseberry fool flash game called Battlemail Joust.

Haven't ever won anything since.

Just over a week ago I was informed I’d won 2 four-day passes to next year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed from Goodwood directly! Very chuffed with that. Worth around £400-500 I reckon!

Previously, my best win was an iPad Air 2 from work for naming an internal system.
