Minecraft TV Build-A-Thon UPDATE!

Posted by Cap on August 29, 2011

Helloooo miners!  On the precipice of the next big Minecraft update, the latest Minecraft Build-A-Thon is still digging away.  We’ve already had some fantastic entries submitted and have heard rumors of many more in the works.  Some fantastic new incentives have been added to the pot, and we’ve been joined by a new sponsor – so we’ve extended the competition! Formerly ending on Sunday September 4th, the TV Build-A-Thon will now  last ’til September 11th 11:59 pm EST.

What’s a Minecraft Build-A-Thon? It’s a series of themed creative building challenges on Nerdy Show’s Server of Awesome. Compete for fabulous prizes! Check out the contest page for all the rules and regs and look below for all the updated prize info!

If you haven’t started a project yet, there’s still plenty of time to get crackin’ and with the added prizes there’s even more reasons to join in! In addition to the outstanding geeky apparel company, 604 Republic the TV Build-A-Thon is now sponsored by incredible TV tribute band Stay Tuned. Check out our interview with them earlier this year here. Stay Tuned has been generous enough to offer up enough copied of BOTH their albums (This is Not a Test, and The Last TV Dinner) that we can award our TOP 10 entries! (1st, 2nd, 3rd place, the My Little Ponies Award, and six additional entries). Woo!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners all get a smattering of cool stuff, but in addition to those we’re offering up a grab bag of TV related items, some quite rare. Since they’re so different, we’re using a turn-based system where the winner chooses what prizes he or she wants the most. The first place winner get’s first pick, then second, then third. Look below for all prizes in the cache and all the different items awarded to the winners. Plus, there’s also Triforce Mike’s special My Little Pony award (details below).
