Speeding soon to a DS near you.      
One month from today, the newest Legend of Zelda game, Spirit Tracks, will hit the DS. Choo-choo? Yeah, OK, I've got nothing (but I'm sincerely excited to play the game when it comes out).
 
And I hope a few of you are too, because Nintendo will be providing us four extra copies of Spirit Tracks to send your way, provided you live in the United States. We'll give away one copy per week for the next four weeks until the game's release, along with a few other goodies like a train whistle, T-shirt, and DSiWare points card.
 
But you'll have to work for this stuff! There's no such thing as a free lunch, or a free Spirit Tracks, either. Instead of our usual random-drawing format, this time you'll have to be the first one to answer these five obscure Zelda trivia questions in the comments on this story to win. And I warn you, these questions are not kind. Put on your thinking (Minish) caps, find the answers to these questions, and be the first to drop them in the comments to win this week's game. Of course, if you just want to discuss the game or talk about how hard these questions are, that's fine too.
 
  1. What is the only Zelda game that Octoroks have not appeared in?
  2. Which piece of the Triforce does Link earn in the original Legend of Zelda?
  3. In what game besides Link’s Awakening did the Ballad of the Windfish appear?
  4. At the beginning of A Link to the Past, where are all three pieces of the Triforce?
  5. Who is the Oracle of Ages?
 

That's it. I suspect some of these will take a little digging, so I'll let you get to work. The winner will be contacted via private message, so keep an eye on your inboxes here in the site once you enter.

 

And don't forget, you'll have three more chances to win, so come back next week for the next round of questions. 

 
UPDATE: We have a winner! And that winner will be contacted via private message.  
 
An important note: The three subsequent trivia challenges will post at 1pm Pacific Standard Time on the next three Mondays, so you won't have to worry about missing your next chance to win. Just make sure you've got your eyes on the forums or news feed at that time so you can take a stab at being the first with the correct answers.

I don't like the "first to answer" format because it just means someone gets lucky and happens to be on the front page when the news story goes up.

#20 Posted by TheHBK (5411 posts) -

This format defeats the purpose.  Its just about who gets lucky enough to see this article first.  Therefore those who keep on hitting refresh with nothing else to do.

#22 Posted by Video_Game_King (34654 posts) -

Um, it's the Internet, so I can answer all these quite easily:
 
In order:
 
Twilight Princess
Triforce of Wisdom (Courage did not come yet)
Majora's Mask
Wait, do you mean the beginning of the events in the game, or including the events preceding it? The former is the Dark World, the latter the Golden Realm.
Nayru.
 
A winner is me? OK, you probably don't want that anywhere near you, do you?

In response to Nintendo's handling of my once favorite series, my answer is "don't know, don't care".  You also didn't pick any questions from OG Zelda, which makes this contest null and void.

#39 Posted by Xeiphyer (5590 posts) -

First to answer sucks :( Also you should have it be PM the answers to a giantbomb account or something, that way people can't just copy paste answers from the comments. And first answer is lame because its all about going on at the right time =/ I missed it because I was eating dinner!

I agree.  Weren't you guys way into manifest destiny back in the day?  I'd be happy to pledge my allegiance to the flag for which it stands, in hopes of winning a copy of Spirit Tracks...but only under those circumstances.  I saw what happened in MW2.  I'll go back to being Canadian then.
But just in case...  
1. Twilight Princes.
2. Link has to find the 8 shattered pieces of the triforce of wisdom.
3. Majora's mask
4. The Sacred realm/ Dark world/ the corrupted hyrule.  whatever you want to call it. The point is Ganon obtained it and as a result of his intentions, the Sacred realm became evil and corrupted as a result.
5. Nayru was the oracle of ages.
I'll pay for shipping?
