Minecraft Television Build-A-Thon

Posted by NerdyShow on August 12, 2011

Welcome, intrepid miner, to Nerdy Show’s SECOND Minecraft Build-A-Thon, co-sponsored by outstanding geeky apparel company, 604 Republic. Each Build-A-Thon has a different theme, and this time it’s TELEVISION! As a nerd you’ve no doubt spent a fair amount of your time in front of the boob tube, it’s been an indoor kid staple for over 50 years! With all the fine programming on the BBC, Hub, and [adult swim] currently playing these days, not to mention the classics, there’s a plethora of possibilities for T.V.-inspired Minecraft structures. We launched this contest in the Nerdy Show episode, “Catherine!!!“, have a listen for some additional details about the contest and the amazing prizes up for grabs. Check out the full prize list below, familiarize yourself with the rules, and GET BUILDING!

YOUR BUILD-A-THON QUEST

Devise the greatest T.V.-themed structure the Minecraftverse has ever seen! It could be sprite art, it could be a blocky re-imagining of something from a series, a location or object inspired by a show, or something so high concept no one has even considered it yet. Use rare materials, use redstone switches, wow us with scope or simplicity, most importantly craft something visionary – honoring the glory of television. All show genres from all eras are acceptable for reference so go wild!  Check out the prizes below, read the rules & regulations, log on to the Server of Awesome, and dive in!

DUE DATE: Sunday, September 4th 11:59pm
