Free Code Friday - August 3rd

Hit me with your best story, and I may give you a code.

Hello everyone, and welcome to another iteration of Free Code Friday. If you’re unaware of what Free Code Friday is, let me explain. Each week we come up with a contest for you to participate in. Prior contests have included caption contests and feature speculations, but this week we’re going to get the creative juices flowing.

I want to know your best Age of Empires related story…in 50 words or less. You can give me a story about any one of the civilizations or any one of the quests, in any of the games! Entertain me with your story, and you may find yourself the proud new owner of a Greek, Persian, Egyptian, or Celt civilization, or even a Glorious Gardening or Bountiful Bushes Empire Extra.

The rules are simple:

  • Create a story about age of empires that is 50 words or less
  • Post the story in our Free Code Friday forum thread
  • On Friday I will hand-pick 8 winners whose story I like the best to receive civilization codes
  • 22 other random winners will be selected to win either Bountiful Bushes or Glorious Gardening
  • 1 entry per person please

You’ve got 50 words. I’ve got 30 codes. Let’s trade. Tell me your story here:
