Fancy a go on a Nintendo 3DS?

What are you doing this weekend?

Tomorrow, you could be playing a Nintendo 3DS.

If you live in London, Manchester or thereabouts - and quite a lot of people do - you can touch and prod and grope Nintendo's magical new handheld well over a month before it goes on sale.

Two special events have been organised, one for each city. But Nintendo hasn't got space for everyone - you could say there's not mushroom.

Cue Eurogamer, gallantly arriving with a bold offer of help, because Nintendo loves your work, Eurogamer reader, and is keen you attend. But how can I get past the Goomba security guards, you ask? Simple: put your name down on the Nintendo website.

From there, your name embarks on a magical journey, and if it's picked by a giant Bowser-like claw from a magical hat then ding, ding, ding: you're a winner - you're going to the event.

Think of the envy you'd stir up on the Eurogamer forum. You think they're nice people now, but oh how you'll see their colours when they know you've touched something they have not. You'll be the talk of the town slash forum!

Bowser bout that?
