Subscribe to ONM, Get Sonic Slot Car Racing Or M&S Olympics


Remember that “meh” slot car racing set that we showed you last month?  Well, now you don’t have to pay for it.  Among the latest subscription offers for Official Nintendo Magazine, one of them is the Sonic & Tails tabletop racing set, complete with FOUR FOOT OF ACTION.

This fantastic collector’s edition racing set is an ideal way to pass the time after a heavy gaming session. Can Tails actually beat Sonic in a race? There is only one way to find out and that is to subscribe to Official Nintendo Magazine, bag yourself this awesome gift and save an impressive 20% off the cover price as well! (Requires 4xAA batteries that aren’t included – sorry)

Key errors in that statement: “fantastic” and “ideal.”  But hey, it’s free now, I guess.  Subscriptions to ONM with these promotional offers cost £10.37 for every three months.  Gift alternatives to the slot car racing set include Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for the DS (uh… wow, awesome), Guiness Book of World Records for the DS (the only item worse than the slot car racing), a 2 GB SD gaming card, or a Wii courier bag.  I don’t know why the racing set is the “premiere” item to subscribe.  You can actually play M&S Olympiad for more than 15 minutes.
