    I was randomly thinking about this...

    The last thing I won was a 4GB flash drive, T-shirt, and some programming books at a tech convention (all at once) through a raffle. So lame. I've never won anything of high dollar value in my life...

    A sweet Kane (Command and Conquer) bobblehead and t-shirt from a gaming blog, not bad for 5 seconds work. Well, plus all the cash I've made them viewing ads all these years.

    Those programming books can be expensive though

    Lost planet 2, then a free brake install on my car. The sad thing is, the Civic Hybrids almost never have to have pads and shoes replaced...D:

    I won the original STALKER, was kind of pointless since the contest was about the best STALKER screens. :bang:

    Didn't bother cashing in on the prize.

    Never won anything..
    Maybe one thing that could be considered winning:
    Last year, there was a huge storm in our city with a couple of flooded streets.. Out of curiosity I took some pictures, and send one of them them to a national online newspaper site, just for fun..
    Next day the pic was published on the frontpage of their "real" newspaper, and I got paid with 100€

    I once won a beta key for "Age of Conan", a inflatable toy sword, a conan comic book and a dev signed piece of artwork.

    And I won a "Godfather Game" T-Shirt at a LAN party. Love this shirt :D

    I won a car when I was a freshman in HS.It was a used Chevy Impala, belonging to my old grade school principal, a nun.I was always her favorite, and when I bought the ticket she gave me a look I couldn't put into words- and said she had a feeling that was the lucky ticket. lol

    Festival tickets last week, two worth £100 each for a big music festival on a beach for 5 days (Beach Break Live). But it's too short notice as its on the 16th so can't find anyone to go with so told them to give the tickets to someone else.

    A couple of weeks ago I logged into Steam and after a brief chat my TDU1 cruising buddy gifted me DIRT2. :) I think he got it free with a pre-order of DIRT3. Not an official win but still felt like one.

    The only thing I ever won in my life was the early-bird lottario here in Ontario which was 4 numbers for a total of $300 CAD. My brothers friend won cash for life. $1000 a week for the rest of his life, or an 80K buy-out option. He took the 80K. I personally would have took the 1K a week myself!
