Crusader Kings II Competition

Find out how you'd fair in Medieval times with .

To celebrate the release of the Legacy of Rome DLC for Crusader Kings II, Paradox Interactive has given us ten Steam codes for the base game to send out to you lucky lot.

Trying to encapsulate everything Crusader Kings II offers is actually quite difficult, but the premise centres on controlling a Medieval dynasty from 1066 to 1453 with players assuming the role of multiple individuals as they use war, marriage, and assassination for their fictional family’s own betterment.

This is the same sort of grand strategy you’d expect from Paradox, only with a fantastic personal touch which adds relevance and context to the decisions you make. If you’re a fan of open-ended experiences which allow players to finely craft stories as they play, you need to play Crusader Kings II. It’s no wonder this effort has earned a Golden Joystick nomination in the Best Strategy category, which you can still vote for by the by, as it really is that good.

That’s enough of our grand spiel though, as there are game codes to be won!

All you need to do to bag a Steam code is leave a comment at the bottom of this page explaining what you’d do if you suddenly found yourself in Medieval times. That’s simple enough right? The most imaginative answers will bag themselves a code, so be sure you have your funny hat on…

This competition will run in tandem with us putting codes on Twitter, so be sure to keep an eye on @GamerZines. As the prizes are Steam codes this competition is open to readers worldwide, so be sure to tell your friends be they American, European, Asian or Australian. We don’t discriminate here, as long as prizes don’t involve ridiculous postage fees…

Good luck!

      Well, If I should find myself in the middle ages… I would probably invent something like Pizza and become the real Pizza inventor!

      I would put on my robe and wizard hat. 
      Then I would amaze people with my ability to create fire out of thin air with my pocket lighter.
      Then i would conquer the world with my Magical BOOmSTICK!!!

      I’ll Try again… So I’d probably go check out my line of succession assassinating my great great great grandfather, so I could marry his wife, then realise the polaroid of me and my family in my pocket was fading. I then need to find a horse and cart that can get me to 88 miles per hour to rectify my mistake.

      Seeing as 90% of today’s population is immune to the Bubonic plague, I’d do my utmost to spread my genes far and wide across the medieval world. Strictly for humanitarian reasons, of course.

      well I obviously would grab my sword and shield, gather my loyal vassals and start conquering the world.
      Oh, wait, I should write what I would do in the middle ages, I forgot.

      Finally you guys fixed the site… I couldn’t post before.

      Well, to be honest… First, I’d get some new clothes to blend in, that’s to be expected. And I find that I won’t ever come back, I’ll do the following: Just start doing some parkour a la Assassin’s Creed and create the first guitar in the world to impress the girls. If there’s something medieval series taught me, is that girls are too easy. Although I bet I’ll suffer quite a bit from from the 60-70′s porn syndrome (I mean, something extra down there that’s not so good on the eyes nowadays =P)

      Thanks for the chance!

      Easy one. With my high level of knowledge (compared to people on those times), I would work my way up the medieval ranks, go from a courtier to an Emperor of some (any) Empire

      I would write a book with facts like the age of the earth, distance from the sun, evelution, ect… Then when my book was found by Modern scientists, they would be amazed and belive any other B.S things I could put in the book. Zebras came from the sky and so on.

      If I suddenly found myself in medieval times I’d rescue the first damsel in distress. Certainly there would be plenty damsel in distress to be found during those times. How would I accomplish that? A man with a working flashlight can do much in medieval times. Don’t underestimate the power of my flashlight.

      I’d use some natural physics to make myself a “wizard” and become rich and famous.
