But what if you were in 2nd place by only a few points?

That seems to be popular. If you guys haven't checked out Champion Archer, you should do so, since it will be the first to have the contest!

Go with more smaller prizes than one big one. iTunes gift cards rock - you can buy them, scratch off the silver stuff, and email/PM the winners the codes!

Dont think this is going to help much in driving your sales up as I`m already convinced that I wont be able to get the top score even before buying it as every one is telling how hard and almost impossible it is. I`d rather go with something like the one below as it`ll get more people picking up the game IMO...

Keep the contest a week long

1st Place- 50$

20$ each for 2 random winners from top ten scorers.

3 random winners from anyone who posted something like 100+(easy enough to get but still takes some time) during the period of the contest.
