Crusader Kings 2 is a strategy game about power and politics in medieval Europe. You must rally vassals to your cause, outwit unruly nobles, negotiate with the papacy and do anything it takes to secure your succession in a world of complex power struggles. It's one of our favourite strategy games and we're delighted to be able to give ten thousand readers the chance to find out why.

For a chance to grab a key, simply enter your email address in the box below. On Monday November 3 the system will randomly pick ten thousand addresses from all of the entrants, and email the keys out to winners directly. Winners will receive a key that unlocks the full game on Steam.

The base game is as deep and rich as they come—find out more in our Crusader Kings 2 review—but it also has a fantastic modding scene. The total conversion that swaps Europe for Game of Throne's Westeros is especially good, as Rich discovered when he roleplayed Ned Stark in our six-part diary series. All this could be yours, should your email address be selected. You can enter using the widget below. Good lucK!
