Get your NERF on with Winsday

Because nothing says Christmas like little foam darts...

As this is the last Winsday competition of 2010, we're breaking with tradition. Instead of giving away a game, this week we're giving you the chance to get your hands on one of the precious NERF Guns from the stash left behind by former editor Nick. You may well gasp, but it's true - you too could stage a harmless domestic rampage just like those enacted by Nick in NGamer Towers.

For those of you outraged by the non-gaming nature of this week's prize, don't forget that Nick's reign of NERF terror began after he reviewed NERF N-Strike on Wii last year. So if you're the lucky winner of the 'NERF N-Strike Recon CS-6' (as it says on the box) you'll be able to recreate in real life what the game tried to do - ie, making everyone in your house flinch in fear of little foam darts. (Just to be clear here, it is just the gun you're getting, not a copy of N-Strike on Wii.)

If your Christmas would be improved immeasurably by the arrival of a NERF Gun this Saturday then (or perhaps early next week if you're in a snow-hit area), simply answer the question below before the competition closes at midnight on Thursday and we'll pick a winner on Friday morning.

Good luck! And remember, it's what Nick would have wanted...
