A contest for a Minecraft giftcode. It'll be multi-tiered, take place in Minecraft, etc, and I'm hoping to limit activities to those that require more skill than luck (eg, redstone, building, PvP, but not spleef). It'll be DBF-member-invite only (Anyone on the DBF or who is directly invited by someone on the DBF). The winner gets the code regardless of whether or not they already have MC. What they do with it is up to them.
Oh, and I'm also giving away a copy of portal to the top-ranked person that plays that doesn't already have portal and wants it. So you've got that.
This thread is currently to gather ideas and structure for the contest. Let me know if you're interested in partaking.
CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. My friend is stuck on the pirated version of 1.1, so I'll give it to him if I win. And that graphic should be ready soon. If I just work on it for five hours straight it should be done.
Maybe you could do some target practices with bows, because like M4 said, the close range combat in that game is very bad, and it is more luck based than anything else, really. I don't know if I'll participate, maybe if there is some need for more people or something.

That assumes it'll be on a server.
EDIT: Which, after thinking about it, it will be. Just use smart clocks and you should be fine. Lag control is part of redstone, after all.
I'm still working on the specifics, but I think it will be one large creation instead of stages. The creation will be judged on the basis of both redstone use (creative and preferably hidden) and architecture, you have a 1km squared space and 24 hours to make it. It may have to be delayed if progress on GSW is not proceeding as planned.
Will the day after tomorrow work for everyone?
EDIT2: I see some people already have word done in their own worlds. Send me the schematic before the contest "begins" and I'll port it into your slot on the world.
