Spartan Games Survey


From the website:

Would you like a chance to win a Battle Group of your choice? Take part in our online survey!

Last year we invited our customers to take part in an online survey. We’ve used what we learned from the survey extensively throughout the year and it has helped with our product planning.

That was a year ago and things change, so we’d like to invite you to take part in this year’s survey to tell us about your gaming and what you like, and perhaps don’t like, about Spartan Games and our products.

The survey will only take about 5 minutes to complete and your answers can be anonymous. However, if you don’t mind telling us who you are, we’ll enter everyone who completes the survey and provides an email address into a draw to win a Battle Group, or Army Box, or Starter Set or Patrol Fleet of their choice.

The survey is open now and will be available until Sunday.
