Are you fond of deep, strategic games of empire-building and enemy-conquering set in some bygone era? Do you enjoy political intrigue, assassinations, espionage?

Do you like the idea of carefully manoeuvring your opponents into a corner, cutting them off from their allies and forcing their food supplies to dwindle as you build siege engines right outside their town’s gates?


But most importantly, are you a micro-managing control freak who loves nothing more than being given access to every little detail with which to enact your Machiavellian machinations?

Then you’re definitely going to want a copy of the latest Total War for PC, subtitled Attila.

We have four copies of the game to give away thanks to the kind folks over at Ster Kinekor Entertainment, and to win one all you need to do is answer the following question:

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
