  • 2nd: iPod Touch 32gb (with apps) + $50 Jinx gift card
  • 3rd: $50 Jinx gift card

HOW DO I ENTER?

Ohhh, this is gonna be a good contest. Good luck to all and may the best ones win!


Edit: Why isn't this app on Google play yet. Feels like Android users are being left out...

What about the people who DON'T have iPhones? Or even Android devices? Or PRINTERS!?

Seriously, this isn't very fair.

I want to enter! Oh, its $4 for the base game? And another $6 for the tile, armor, and skin packs? But... I don't have $10 after the Steam Summer Sale!

I want to be rich one day. Some people are so rich they lose all respect for humanity. That's how rich I want to be.

Guys. You don't HAVE to own the iOS app to participate.... People were doing Papercraft WAY before the app came out. You can google the templates and print them on any pc/mobile device. Please stop making comments about it being unfair that ONLY iOS users can enter. :/

Yes but the contest is being hosted by the company making the app so I guess you have to use their software to participate.

Looks interesting. Probably not going to enter just because I don't have that kind of time/creativity/money/paper/ink/anything else. Heck, I don't even have a smartphone. Heh.

Whatever. I look forward to seeing whatever everyone else comes up with--should be awesome and very interesting! [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img]

Did they ever SAY that? Also, how are they going to tell? You're submitting photos of little Minecraft figures/backgrounds made of paper. If the idea is you have to use the app, how on earth are they going to force it?

Pardon my criticism, but don't automatically assume the worst. Try to think positive. It'll make life a lot less stressful :P
Define Cute (choose 1):   A) Creepers B) Aerbunnies C) Herobrine. If you chose A): You appeal to destruction and to stereotypes.   If you chose B): You are a perfectly normal person, and enjoy the Aether Mod. If you chose C): Please leave the planet now before you set off a nuclear warhead--no one enjoys mass murders, however nice they might seem to you.

Well, that makes sense to me. If Mojang was hosting a contest for building the best structure in Minecraft, one would expect people to have to have Minecraft to enter. So naturally, since it's 57Digital's contest for the best diorama made with their software, using their software is kind of a requirement.

And, seriously, complaining about four bucks? You can't get lunch for that, unless you like the McDollar Menu and don't eat a lot.

For people wondering check this:

: [list=1]
[*]No purchase is necessary to enter this competition – it is free to enter.
[/list]
So also for people who don't own an apple product this is possible :)

hope this helps people :)

btw about that big thumbs up for making it free to enter i'd love to pay the 4 dollars, but I don't own an Ipod or anything.
