As we've mentioned before, we're very excited to be attending Minecon this year! Now, we'd like to give you some inside details about how the Scavenger Hunt is going down!
The scavenger hunt will work like this:
All Minecon attendees will receive a Diamond Deposit Flyer in their attendee bags (you can also pick up a flyer from one of the partners if you lose yours, but just note, we will only allow one entry per person).
Attendees need to take their flyer to each of the partners booths and perform an interaction there to receive a diamond sticker. For example, at the Curse booth we will ask you to make a comment about your Minecon experience at the Minecraft Forum Exchange station.
Once you have collected a diamond sticker from each of the partners return to the Curse booth and deposit your completed Diamond Flyer in the Curse Bank.
Around 3:15 pm on Saturday Notch will be at the Curse booth to draw the winning flyers from the Curse Bank.
All the prizes for the scavenger hunt will be on display at the Curse booth, so come on by and check out all the cool stuff you can win. Curse and our partners are giving away some SERIOUS loot, so you won't want to miss your chance to enter this one.
Still, what to do if you're not able to make it to Minecon this year? No worries, we've got you covered! When Minecon starts on November 18th, Curse is going to open a US Premium sweepstakes on our homepage where one lucky entrant will win a sweet custom Minecraft-themed Xbox 360 for themselves.
So, get signed up and enter for your chance to win!
Finally, we've also made a 3rd Minecraft-themed xbox for one very special kid. On Saturday during Minecon, Mojang is throwing a VIP charity lunch to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation. At the event, Curse will be giving one of these Xboxes to a Make-a-Wish youngster who is a huge Minecraft fan, and whose wish it is to attend Minecon. Mojang and Curse are working together to ensure they have the most amazing Minecon experience imaginable!
We're very excited to be attending Minecon, and look forward to seeing all of you there, whether in person or right here on Minecraft Forums!
As we've explained before the reason our competitions are US only is because every country has very strict rules regarding sweepstakes and it isn't possible for us to give away prizes in every country. We would love to but it just isn't feasible.
