My 38th birthday is just around the corner (January 9). To celebrate, as I have done over the last few years, I’m giving some of my favourite books away! This year, thanks to the wonderful people at Quirk Books, one lucky Geeky Pleasures reader will win the following four books (giveaway details below):

On February 18, 2014, Tor Books is releasing a new special edition of the first two titles in R. A. Salvatore’s Saga of the First King series: DemonWars: First Heroes. If you live in Canada or the U.S., you could win one of three copies.

The above video should be enough to sell you. But just in case it isn’t, the TL;DR version is: $1 or more will get you five Sid Meier games; pay more than the average and you will receive seven games; pay $15 or more and you will receive eight games, which includes the locked Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World DLC. Awesome, right?
Yesterday, we updated GottaCon’s website to include all panels and special events we have in store for you. It’s been a very busy few months for me as I put together some great programming, if I do say so myself. This year, we have three times as many panels and guests than previous years. Yesterday, the first press release regarding panels and guests also went out. Behold! Friday’s panels and special events.
Today we are pleased to announce the Video Game line-up for GottaCon 2014. Below please find our list of game systems, games and tournaments planned for GottaCon 2014, which will be held February 28 to March 2, 2014 at the Victoria Conference Centre in Victoria BC (720 Douglas Street).
