Ahoy there, my brain-loving astronauts! It is I, your friendly neighborhood Chuloopa!

Today is a glorious day!

Why? Because thanks to the good people at MinMax games i have 5 Steam codes for the breakout hit Space Pirates and Zombies, or the acronym i love ever so much, S.P.A.Z!

Don't know what Space Pirates Versus Zombies is all about? That's ok, i'll let the good people at MinMax break it down for you...

IN A NUT SHELL At its core, Space Pirates and Zombies is an action based, skill oriented, top down space combat game. It's similar to the ones we knew and loved in years past, but now using full physics simulation and modern graphics for those oh so pretty explosions. But as you dig deeper, SPAZ becomes much more.

KEY FEATURES -33 ships to research, build, outfit and pilot. -70 unique components to discover and customize your fleet's performance. -Totally physics based combat system. -Fight Zombie infestations, battling a full zombie ecosystem comprising four stages of un-life. -Explore a persistent randomly generated galaxy containing hundreds of star systems. -Freedom to explore the galaxy and take on challenges at your own pace. -Aid, flee, or exploit the warring factions in each star system.

Now, i don't know about you guys - but that sounds like more fun than i can poke an astro-stick at!

What do you have to do to score yourself a copy of the very-awesome S.P.A.Z?

It's simple - I'm bringing back the Limerick competition!

For those who don't understand what a limerick is, it's all explained here.

    Got this game myself and it is totally worth the price I paid.. very free-from and challenging top-down space RPG/Action game.

    There once was a pirate named Zed,
    Who couldn't tell his heart from his head.
    Fell in love with a Zombie,
    And then became naughty,
    Now he's doing the nasty with undead.

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    With a fat, juicy brain in his head.
    A zombie boarded his ship,
    took one little nip,
    and now poor Zed's undead!

    There once was a pirate named Zed,
    Who chewed on an astronauts head,
    He fell to the floor,
    with blood covered gore,
    then spasmed and splashed in the red.

    There once was a pirate named Zed,
    Who lived in a ship made of lead,
    He fought undead minions,
    Of which there were trillions,
    Because no-one would work in his stead!

    There once was a Pirate named Zed
    Who got an idea in his head
    He hiked up his pants
    And started to dance
    From sheer horror, the zombies all fled

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    set his phasers to "make things dead"
    shot himself in the ass
    gave us quite a laugh
    He now has to sit on his head.

      not a true limerick, but was bored and wanted to join in :P

    There once was a pirate called Zed
    He doesn't breathe when he is in bed
    Zed went for a ride
    To the other side
    Because we all know that ZED IS DEAD.

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Who raided ships on his mighty great sled
    He killed many a crew
    Till his heart finally grew
    And now he's a space cop instead

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Through space, in his ship, he fled
    One day, zombies came
    "With presents", they claim
    "Come dear, today we'll be wed"

    Epic game is epic! Grats to whoever wins a copy; and to whoever doesn't:

          WHAT PLATFORMS WILL SPAZ BE RELEASE FOR?
          For now, SPAZ is on the PC, since that’s the platform we’re developing on. We’d like to do a Mac version, and even possibly an Xbox version at some point in the future.

          So there is still hope

    There once was a pirate named Zed,
    With a most delectable head.
    But he soon felt such torture
    Fearing zombie "La Nourriture",
    And thus resolved to curb-stomp the undead.

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Who tried to fly a ship with his head
    Crashed into more pirates
    His body did Girate
    Now Zed has to fight off the undead

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Who had a run in with the undead
    But he began to fear
    that his life story was near
    to being a Johnny Depp-film retread.

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Whose hand was eaten by the undead
    The day after that happened
    Zed saluted the captain
    And put his new hook through his head

    There once was a pirate named Zed,
    Happy and carefree was the life he led,
    thanks to a movie with Depp,
    a number of sequels lacking real depth.
    Zed walked the plank and drank with The Quick and The Dead

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Who on occasion is known to have said
    Infinity and beyond
    Is just a wave of my wand
    That connects with the side of your head

    I already have it, truly a great game so if I win give my copy to the next placed person

    Who was sadly turned undead
    Twas at his behest
    Sent zombies to quest
    So brains he can be fed

    His best friend was Ed his ted
    A zombie popped in without fear
    With nothing but a sneer
    Zed went and cut off its head

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    whom when tired returned to his bed
    already there it seemed
    was a zombie drag queen
    whom he only so recently wed

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Down on his luck and low on cred
    He fired a looting magnet
    His target was our planet
    Now he's rolling in dough It is said.

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    Who needed his tires retread
    He said with a moan
    While on his on his cell phone
    I'll call a mechanic instead.

      Crap, I put on his twice!

      There once was a pirate named Zed
      Who needed his tires retread
      He said with a moan
      While on his cell phone
      I’ll call a mechanic instead.

    There once was a pirate named Zed
    He decided to stay in bed
    From here he dreamed of a pirate named Zed
    Who also decided to stay in bed
    and thus ends the tale of Zed
    because it turns out he was actually just dead

    There was once a priate named Zed
    Who wanted to get ahead
    So he went looking for evil
    And found an intergaltic weevil
