Edit: This competition is now closed. Congratulations to the winners Azrael-, Lankymorley, Aterius Gmork, Echo Three and Lord Badger who all correctly guessed that there was 73 items in the pile (48 pens & 25 lanyards). Thank you to everyone who entered and to Patriot for supplying the prizes too!
Simply guess the number of items in the pile below to be in with a chance of winning
We’ve teamed up with the fine people at Patriot Memory to organize a competition to win one of five 32GB Supersonic USB 3 flash drives.
Capable of read speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 70MB/s thanks to their quad-channel technology, these USB drives can transfer large files up to ten times faster than their USB 2 counterparts.
The Supersonic drives are housed in a stylish aluminium shell, and are shock resistant up to 15G meaning that if you ever break one, we’ll officially be impressed.
To be in with a chance of winning one of the five drives, all you have to do is have a guess at how many Patriot lanyards and Patriot pens are piled up in the picture below. Simply post your guess in the comments thread attached to this post.
The nearest five guesses get the prizes, and in the case of a draw, the person who posts first get’s the prize. The competition is open worldwide, and will be closing after 48 hours, though we may keep it open for an extra day if there is still lots of entries coming in.
You’re only allowed one guess each

With that said, it's time to start scrutinizing the blow picture and post up your guess. Good luck!
