Nintendo Holding Banana-Counting Contest for Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

Win, and receive a trip to Whistler Blackcomb for four, and more!

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is barreling towards a February 21st release, and given the weather we’ve been experiencing lately, something about it all just seems incredibly apt. From now until the 20th of February, however, Nintendo of Canada is holding a special contest for Canadians to win a trip for four to Whistler Blackcomb, along with a Wii U Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze prize pack.

How do you win? First, watch the following video:

That’s right: This crate full of frozen bananas could be your ticket to fame and fortune! Or, well, a vacation and what looks to be a cool (sorry) game on a fun system. Just count the bananas for your chance to win (along with filling out the contest entry form on Facebook, of course).

To learn more about the game, visit the official website. As for the contest rules:

*NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Open to residents of Canada who are at least 13 years old at time of entry. Math skill-test required. Contest closes February 20, 2014 at 11:59pm PT. 1 Grand Prize available to be won, consisting of an adventure trip for 4 to Whistler Blackcomb in BC, including flights, accommodation, lift tickets and equipment rentals, private lesson, plus 1 Wii U™ system, 1 Donkey Kong Country™: Tropical Freeze game, 1 Wii Remote Plus controller and 1 Nunchuk™ controller, ARV $9,740 (based on Toronto departure). 5 Second Prizes available to be won, each consisting of 1 Wii U™ system, 1 Donkey Kong Country™: Tropical Freeze game, 1 Wii Remote™ Plus controller and 1 Nunchuk™ controller, ARV $410 each. Odds of winning depend on number of eligible entries received. Full Contest Rules at http://www.nintendo.ca.

One thing I don’t get, though, is the requirement for winning. Does the number have to be exact? Or will the person who comes closest be able to claim the prize? Following the link for full contest rules takes you to a graphic with the above text, and following the link there leads you to Facebook, all in a perpetual circle. Whatever the case, best of luck to those who enter!
