SitePoint Giving Away Books Based On Foosball Skills!

By Matthew Magain

If you’re a regular subscriber to Alex’s Design View newsletter, then you’ve probably heard the SitePoint team moved offices recently — we’re now happily ensconced in our swanky new residence in the Paris end of Collingwood. To celebrate the move, we thought we’d throw the doors open to all our Melbourne customers… and have a book sale.

We’ve stuck some CRAZY prices on all our office book stock and the invitation is open to anyone who lives in Melbourne (or will be in Melbourne this week) to grab yourself a bargain. However, in typical SitePoint style, we thought we’d give the book sale a bit of a twist.

You’ve all seen the age-old “Buy two, get one free!” and “Buy one, get the second at half price!” deals that carpet warehouse sellers and CD wholesalers offer. But really, where’s the fun in that?

Here’s our offer: buy three books and you’ll get the chance to challenge one of the SitePoint team members to either a game of foosball or a high speed race on the office X-box. If you win, you’ll get a fourth book absolutely free.

Now that sounds like a lot more fun!

First through the door today was Rohan Baumann (below) who quickly snapped up a handful of books:

So if you’re in the Collingwood area, feel free to drop in and say hi before the doors close on Friday. Who knows, you just might get a chance to give one of SitePoint’s co-founders a foosball lesson!

  • There’s was going to be a Guitar Hero III challenge, but unless Eddie Van Halen needed a Javascript book, the average challenger would have been wasting their time with Brothercake in the house. ;)

    Thanks for the chance to come in and grab some great bargains this morning.
    I’ve already been poring through my latest additions – keep up the great work!

  • That’s a brilliant idea. How about a challenge to guitar here III live.. you can be anywhere in the world for that!
