Name the Game

*** Please note: The contest feature has been discontinued, but we’re planning to debut a newly-revamped gaming segment in the near future.  Stay tuned! ***

Each episode of Open Apple invites listeners to enter the “Name the Game” contest. It’s fun and easy: just listen to a brief sound clip (usually 10–15 seconds) from an Apple II game and see if you can name it. The game could be 8-bit or 16-bit, thirty years old or one month old. Since we offer the audio only, there’s no sense searching the Internet for the answer — either you know it or you don’t!

We have some pretty simple rules by which this contest is played:

  • Entries are accepted from the episode’s air date until 9 AM MT on the first Saturday of the next calendar month.
  • All entries must be sent either to the email address specified in the episode, or via this Web site’s contact form.
  • All entries, regardless of answer, will receive an email confirmation before the deadline.
  • The winner is chosen randomly from all correct answers, making everyone eligible to win; it is not a “first come, first served” scenario.
  • The winner is announced on the next monthly episode after the contest opens.
  • Limit one win per quarter. For example, if we air an audio clip in February and announce you as the winner in March, you can next enter to win the May contest.
  • Prizes may not be exchanged or substituted, or redeemed for cash value.
  • This contest is valid in all cities, states, countries, and territories.

Have fun!
