Microsoft Studios’ Age of Empires’ Wololo Wednesday
Age of Empires is a Real Time Strategy (RTS) game which is published by Microsoft Studios since 1997.
New versions of the game came and expansions were released until November 2015 when the African Kingdoms joined the Age of Empires II expansion packs.
Age of Empires held a monthly contest called the Wololo Wednesday, challenging people to create something creative according to the theme given.
I first participated in the Wololo Wednesday contest on November 2014 after I found out about it from the Age of Empires website.
For the contest, I submitted my drawing of my favourite unit, an Age of Empires III Janissary.
And on December 2014 when the winners were announced, I found out that I was part of the winners of the November contest and I could chose two prizes from the prize list; and so I picked Age of Empires: HD Edition + The Forgotten Steam Key and 250 Gold for Age of Empires: Castle Siege.
I won another prize in the March 2015 contest where I chose another Age of Empires: HD Edition + The Forgotten Steam Key as a gift for my father.
I won again on August 2015 when I submitted a slogan to call for new recruits to join my army and for the prize, I chose an Age of Empires III: Complete Collection Steam Key and the Age of Empires: Castle Siege PAX Prime Bandana.
Last few days, I was announced a winner once more for my submission of a picture of how Salahuddin Al-Ayubbi celebrated the new year by inviting all his friends and foes to where he lives to celebrate the new year together in peace and harmony instead of fighting with each other.
This time I chose two of the latest Age of Empires II: The African Kingdoms Expansion Steam Key; one will be a gift for my father and the other one will be for me.
I’m very excited to win the competitions because the Wololo Wednesday is an international competition organised by the Microsoft Studios and I hope that I could win more competitions in the future.
