Reader Competition

Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS) Giveaway

To celebrate the launch of Paper Mario: Sticker Star we've teamed up with Nintendo to bring you a very special Letter Box competition. Up for grabs is a brand new 3DS XL Console with a copy of Paper Mario: Sticker Star, wahoo! Two runners up will also receive a copy of the game; this is for UK residents only.

To win, all you have to do is send us a creative Nintendo Letter Box message from your 3DS; it should be related to Paper Mario and can be as simple as a sketch, or as much as a four page comic strip. It's all about being creative and witty, with the most entertaining letters likely to catch our eye. To enter simply fill in the form and submit your 3DS friend code, and if you are one of the first 100 entrants we'll then email you our contest friend code. You'll have to enter our friend code, pair up with our system and send your letter within 24 hours of us emailing you; if you take too long we'll give your slot to the next entrant in line. Once we receive your letter we'll reply to confirm that you've been accepted in the competition. After that you can submit as many attempts as you like until Wednesday, 5th December, though only your final letter will be considered. The winners will be announced on Friday, 7th December.

Please Note: we can only accept 100 entries, this is on a first come, first served basis.

Tymek said:

It's UK only...I'll ask a friend to send this to me then!
Well, the Paper Mario stationary will be really handy right now.
Good luck everyone!



KAHN said:

darn! UK only! and to think i actually clicked on this post ]:<



Dazza said:

@SanderEvers Nintendo UK are supplying the prizes on this occasion, so it is their decision where they would like to send the prizes.

We do run competitions for Europe, North America and beyond every now and then. You guys will get your chance another time



SheldonRandoms said:

I already got the game yesterday (but have to wait until Christmas to play), good luck to those who entered



New_3DaSh_XL said:

@Tymek Region-locked means if you put a cartridge froom UK into your North American or wherever you are's 3DS your 3DS won't play it... unless you have a UK 3DS.



Late said:

@3Dash: He/She lives in Netherlands (at least according to his/her profile) which is part of Europe so UK games work on his/her 3DS.



Bulbousaur said:

Darn it, I have no WiFi at uni... If only you made this competition yesterday when I was at home... I'll try when I get home on Friday, but all the places will probably be gone by then.



Tsuchiya said:

Not contacted here. Pretty sure I was first of the mark too. Obviously that meant nothing!



Dazza said:

@Tsuchiya we've not contacted anybody yet! We'll update this thread once we send out the first batch of emails. Patience



Koapa said:

Great !
UK only an US get this game alrady...
What come next ?... oh I know, demos that are only for US...

Thank you



baba_944 said:

Yea, why? I was about to make a comeback due to me missing out on the Paper Mario: Sticker Star competition last week. Please make one for US.



Folkloner said:

Entered over an hour ago. Finished my letter. Just waiting for the Friend Code, unless all entrants have been decided already! =(



Tymek said:

I hope I get chosen.
My Entry is ready!
I will get a friend to send it to me from the UK.



Eldir said:

Damn, UK only...

I hope you make a Portugal only competition someday



PixelatedPixie said:

I entered my 3DS friend code into the box above, but the article suggests there was a form I was supposed to fill in? Did I miss something?

I also got a message stating 'Thanks for entering! Your entry has been counted. Please wait until we reveal the winner.' So I assume I've been accepted as one of the 100 participants.



Nazz said:

Ok, so do I need to wait for an email which contains your 3ds friend code as well?



KAHN said:

i dont get it. if this is UK only, why are the brits in the comment section wishing the others good luck? isnt that supposed to be exactly what they dont want eachother to have?



Azikira said:

POOOOOOOP :'c So many UK contests! You guys are gunna make me move so I can have a chance!! D:



HammerBr0 said:

Man It's only for UK and the 3DS is region locked!
Well all i can say good luck UK residents!



Dazza said:

@3DS_excel yup, just wait for our email. So far everyone who has entered from the UK will have a place in the comp. We haven't sent out any emails with our friend code yet.

There are about 20 places left, so be sure to submit your friends code today if you are a UK resident



RpgN said:

Luckily my BF lives in the UK, I'll get it delivered to him if I win anything.

Hopefully I'm part of those 20 left!



RpgN said:

''To enter simply fill in the form and submit your 3DS friend code, and if you are one of the first 100 entrants we'll then email you our contest friend code.''

I didn't see any form, only asked to log in and enter my friend code, is that right?



Tsuchiya said:


It says in your profile that you're from the Netherlands correct? It's UK only so if your BF is from the UK get him to enter as I'm not sure you yourself can.

Unless of course you live in the UK with him in which case, shut up Tsuchi



Dazza said:

@RpgN - the bit where you enter your friend code is all you need to do to enter. As the competition explains, we are only accepting entries from UK residents. Our system can detect the region by IP Address when someone enters the competition, so only readers based in the UK will be eligible to enter. Someone in the Netherlands cannot enter the competition and pass on the prize.

There are about 15 places left now



ScreenSplitter said:

Just entered, Paper Mario is something I'd have trouble blowing £40 on, so a free copy would be lush. The bigger screens of the XL would be uber sexy too...

EDIT: It's actually nice for a change to get a UK based competition, loads of the big gaming journo sites always stick exclusively with NA for competitions.



Nanoline said:

Not in the UK, but wouldn't enter anyways. This game was just too disappointing for me, and way too indicative of Nintendo's recent shenanigans.



ScreenSplitter said:


Question, does the entry have to be a Swapnote based drawing, or can we draw something in Colors 3D then put it into the Swapnote message?



Tymek said:

Atleast I'm currently in a contest to win a Yellow Pikachu 3DS XL!!!



Tsuchiya said:


"To win, all you have to do is send us a creative Nintendo Letter Box message from your 3DS"

Since Colors! 3D isn't mentioned anywhere, then I'll go with no. I believe it's just a letter (upto 4 pages) than must be submitted by those who have the NL FC sent via email.

It's amazing. People asking what to do when it's explained at the top of the article you're commenting on! If you entered it in time, then best of luck



ScreenSplitter said:


You can send pictures, and in turn Colors 3D pictures created through Nintendo Letter Box. It really is amazing people wanting to know the terms of a contest they're entering...?



Tsuchiya said:


I know you can but it's not mentioned here in the competition requirements.
It states the word letter so I'm sure they mean just that. If NL wanted Colors!3D entries then presumably they would say so but maybe they could clarify this.



Dazza said:

@ScreenSplitter we'd rather have submissions created 100% using Nintendo Letter Box. You should be able to show off your creativity without the need for other apps

There are still a few places in the comp left if anyone in the UK hasn't entered yet.



ScreenSplitter said:


Ah fair enough. Remind me again how you unlock features for Nintendo Letter Box... play coins right? I'll practice tonight and get walking tomorrow to unlock colors!



Morpheel said:

"UK only"

Heard that? That's the sound of my broken heart on the distance.

Good luck everyone!



RpgN said:


Thanks for clearing things up. That's a huge bummer but there might be other opportunities next time. Good luck to all the UK residents!



TingLz said:

Uh, why is everyone complaining about region locking? You still can't enter the contest even if you had a region-free 3DS. Region locking doesn't change anything in this contest



OshawottArtist said:

Really? why not make it world wide. like all the way to Puerto Rico? My irish cousins will probably send it to me if they win. I HAS A REGION FREE 3DS



Folkloner said:

Nope, still waiting. At first I lamented a fact that they didn't state when they'd send you letters but given that they had no idea at the start when they'd reach 100 entrants and thus, presumably, start sending the letters out, i guess that was rather tricky.

Ah well, remain patient. I'm sure they haven't forgotten. =)



PixelatedPixie said:

@BlockPunch - Yeah same here. At this point I can assume I wasn't amongst the top 3 as I did not receive an email yesterday, so I'm going to go ahead and order my copy today. It's a shame there wasn't a more elegant way for participants to find out whether or not they won something.
