Default Shrapnel\'s Savings for Scholars and Soldiers!

News Release For Immediate Release

New Shrapnel Games Customer Discount Program!
Great Savings For College Students and Military Personnel!

Hampstead, NC, 02 March 2007

College students, military personnel (both active and retired), lend us your ear! Here at
Shrapnel Games we understand that times can be tough, and sometimes you have to
choose between another case of Ramen noodles or a great strategy game, but no more!
As our way of showing appreciation to two great gaming groups Shrapnel Games is now
offering a 10% discount to all full-time college students and active (or retired) military
personnel with the "Shrapnel's Savings For Scholars and Soldiers" program!

The "Shrapnel's Savings For Scholars and Soldiers" program is not a one-time discount,
but rather every purchase made will allow the participant to always save at least 10% off
the purchase price. This is on top of any other offered discount, such as the monthly
Gamers Front sales or pre-order discounts, meaning that the potential discount could
easily be 20%, 25%, or even 30% off the full retail price! Furthermore, if you live in the
lower 48 states (including APO and FPO addresses) Shrapnel Games charges absolutely
nothing for shipping when you choose Priority Mail as your shipping option, making the
savings even greater!

The program is open to ALL full-time college students around the globe, and members of
the American military, either currently active or retired. Becoming a member is as easy
as following three easy steps.

Step One

As a college student anywhere in the world, or a member of the American military,
register an account at the Shrapnel Games e-store, the Gamers Front. Users who have
already registered can of course skip this step. Registration is free and gives you a
number of shopping perks, such as earning reward points on your Shrapnel Games
purchases. To register, visit www.gamersfront.com/xcart/home.php

Step Two

We'll need a copy of your student ID or military ID. Photocopy or scan BOTH sides of
your ID, providing us with the relevant information that is needed to prove you're a
student or military (we understand if some information needs to be blacked out). The ID
facsimile may be sent to Shrapnel Games via email, fax, or snail mail.

If submitting the ID via email send the scan of the ID to annette@shrapnelgames.com
with the subject line "Shrapnel's Scholars" or "Shrapnel's Soldiers" (dependent on your
group). Be sure to include the user ID/name of your Gamers Front account!

If submitting the ID via fax send the fax to Annette's attention at 1-910-270-9891.
Include the user ID/name of your Gamers Front account.

If submitting via snail mail it may be sent to the following address. Make sure to include
the user ID/name of your Gamers Front account.

United States of America (if sent from outside the US)

Just to remind everyone one more time, regardless of how you submit your ID always
make sure to include your Gamers Front account ID so it can be easily matched up!

Step Three

Reap your rewards! Enjoy knock-out savings on the best independent niche games
available like Dominions 3: The Awakening, Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space, and
the Enhanced CD edition of WinSPWW2, and still have money left over for cases of
Ramen noodles! Why, you could feed your entire dorm floor or platoon!

And now the fine print.

Please allow some time to pass between submitting your ID and becoming a member of
the program. Users will be notified once the process is complete. The quickest path is of
course via email, with snail mail taking the longest.

To receive the discount the program member must be logged into their Gamers Front
account when shopping. No coupon code is necessary, the discount will automatically be
applied to the subtotal prior to any shipping charges. Remember, if you reside in the
lower 48 states choosing Priority Mail means free shipping!

The "Shrapnel's Savings for Scholars and Soldiers" discount becomes active once the
information is processed and does not retroactively apply to previous purchases.

Complete information on the program can be found at:


So what are you waiting for? Send those IDs in and start saving today!

Much appreciated in ages when my military retirement benefits are slowly getting trimmed away. Thank you.
(are you sure its a good idea for College Students?)
This game is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices, or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not think about strategies while operating heavy machinery. Before beginning this game make arrangements for someone to check on you daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours straight then you should consult a physician immediately (Do NOT show him the game!)
