The Wheels of Forfeit and Fortune

Welcome to the Wheels of Forfeit and Fortune, where we undertake challenges for your viewing pleasure and give our supporters the chance to win prizes when we hit fundraising milestones.

The rules
Wheel of Forfeit Wheel of Fortune
Send us your forfeit suggestions via email or our social media channels and we’ll add them into the following list. Then every time we reach £100 in donations, the wheel will be spun to determine our fate – and we’ll complete the selected challenges live during our 72-hour stream in April.

While we’re definitely up for a laugh, we do reserve the right to not add any suggestion received which may result in physical harm or damage to SpecialEffect’s reputation. Our own reputation however is a completely different matter.

Every time we reach £50 in donations, we’ll be selecting one of our lucky supporters at random to win one of the special PC bundles below. All you need to do to be entered is to follow us on any of our social media channels or make a donation.

Further information about our competitions can be found on our policy page; if you violate the rules, we’ll disqualify you (and your 40 aliases). A huge thank you to all of the kind developers and publishers who have donated prizes fpr the giveaways.
