I also have a CD with Handmark‘s

How do you get one of the copies? Be one of the first two people to send
me a Gadgeteer of the Month entry!

If you are the first to send an entry, you will get the Monopoly &
Scrabble disk. If you are the second, then you will get the Trivial Pursuit
disk. If you are the third or fourth? Then I will reach into my bag of schwag
and find something to send you – never fear.

I will post here once the two games have been given away, so write up a
GOTM entry and send it in!
