Civ Rev Contest: Civilizations Across Gaming

So Firaxis' Civilization Revolution does a pretty good job of bringing the series' core gameplay to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS. And the propaganda for it isn't half bad either, with posters like this and this. That's why the Shack has gotten together with publisher 2K Games, and together, we intend to answer the proletariat's demands for propaganda materials.

So sure, we've got five of the large Napoleon posters. And sure, we've got ten of the Lincoln posters, one even signed by the man himself, Sid Meier. But how do we move them from Shacknews to you? With a contest of course!

All we want you to do is to pick a unit or person from any video game and just write up a little something for it. Tell us who or what it is, where it's from, and maybe provide a bit of flavor text and an image. I'll post a template and some examples in the comments below to get everyone off on good footing.

Everyone who submits an entry will have a chance to win, but we'll select the best executed of the bunch to receive the signed poster. You have until this Friday (9/12) at 11:59 PM CST to submit entries. Good luck.
