High on a narrow mountain pass in 480 B.C., a small Greek army awaits an onslaught of epic proportions. Led by just 300 Spartan soldiers, they somehow hold off the colossal Persian military for seven full days – until not one Greek warrior is left standing.

After running the Great Goblin Giveaway almost two years ago, I figured it was about time to run another competition. And let’s face it, it’s pretty obvious.

  • The competition will run from the 15th February, 2016 (AEST) until the 15th March, 2016 (AEST). Ooooh, beware the Ides of March!
  • Once 300 likes are achieved, the random draw will take place.
  • You have to have like the Facebook page as well as the post announcing the competition to be eligible
