Welcome to the PC Gamer Ultimate Christmas Giveaway! This is the biggest competition we've ever done: packed with peripherals, games, and exclusive items signed by some very important people. Why are we doing this? Because it's Christmas! And we love you.

The Ultimate Christmas giveaway will run until Christmas Eve. Every day we'll be posting about a new prize that's up for grabs, and you'll have 24 hours after the time of publishing to enter. Sadly, we're only able to open this competition to UK residents.

On the tenth day of Christmas PC Gamer gave to me... ten Daimyo's ruling! Okay, so it isn't really the tenth day of Christmas, but that doesn't mean we can't give away ten copies of Shogun 2: Total War to celebrate the season of goodwill. Because what says Christmas like taking over feudal Japan?

Check inside for details of how to win.
