This month's Games For Windows Co-Op Night takes us into the vast reaches of the galaxy in the beautiful strategy game Sins of a Solar Empire from developer Iron Clad games. We'll be playing on Tuesday, December 22nd at 8PM Eastern.
There's a few ways to join up.
We'll have a game started right at 8 using the Entrenchment expansion - just join the game named Billy in Space from within the game. If that's full, we suggest joining Impulse's Sins chat room (click Chat under the More tab at the bottom of the Impulse client) and meet up with other folks to play! Of course you could always set something up right on this thread as well!
Keep on reading to learn all about the PRIZES you could win as well!
The Co-Op Experience:
Choose from a wide range of scenarios to complete. Each scenario ranges in size and the number of players it supports.
Players can work together to conquer enemy AI, utilizing interface tools for communication and collaboration.
Sins of a Solar Empire Background:
Ten millennia have passed since you and the few survivors of the once mighty Vasari Empire fled from an unknown threat that all but exterminated your kind. You now find yourself at the fringe of the galaxy in a sector occupied by a pathetically primitive species - one obsessed with trade and lacking any central organization or military technology. Calling themselves the Trader Emergency Coalition, they would have been ideal slaves in the glorious days of the past, but time is of the essence. Use your mastery of phase-space manipulation, gravity and nanotechnology to quickly eliminate any local resistance and acquire the necessary resources to fuel the next segment of your continuing exodus.

It wouldn't be a co-op night without a contest - and we've got lots of goodies to give away! First up, courtesy of Stardock, we have two copies of the upcoming Sins of Solar Empire expansion called Diplomacy! You'll get instant access to the beta for it as well!
But what if you don't have Sins of a Solar Empire? Good news then! We have two copies of the game to giveaway as well. Not just any copies, no...no...no. Two complete packs with the included Entrenchment expansion.
I hear what you are saying - "Surely you good people of Co-Optimus don't have more stuff to giveaway." "Surely the gaming gods can't continue to smile down upon us."
Well I say - "Oh my good people of Co-Optiland the gods are smiling. They are shining brightly. Or perhaps that bright shine is your brand new Games for Windows Lighted signs!"
These lights are over 3 feet in length and are of the same quality you'd see in a retail store. And we have 2 to giveaway!*
So leave a message below, tell us what looks good to you. Enter to win all three. We don't care, it's the holiday season and we feel like GIVING! Contest ends Tuesday December 22nd at 3PM Eastern. Good luck!
