:pir-wub: This is sure to be very cool, SlyOwl! I'll probably enter this one, since now I have some pirate minifigs, unlike last time.  :pir-wink: Bony, how will this be different than last time around? Then again, you're probably saving that for another announcement.  :pir-laugh:

If the concept would just be the same as "Pillage the village I" it would show a lack of imagination on our part. So maybe this one is very different or... maybe I'm just saying this because I want you to believe it is different. Wait, now I'm starting to confuse myself  :pir-laugh:

Our contest master SlyOwl will release more bits of info about this contest in the coming days and on the 25th you'll know what's it all about. So stay tuned!

As much as I enjoyed browsing last year's creations, I'm not a fan of all the violence in the MOCs. But then again 'pillaging' and 'violence' seem to go hand in hand, so I'm curious as to what will change - if anything.

Why? So you can all bombard the staff with crazy questions before the comp has even started? Patience grasshopper all in good time.

I'm looking forward to this contest! I've enjoyed the first one last year, but I've evolved much in terms of building skills. So I'm curious what this will be all about.

I admit that the violence aspect does get a little crazy at times, but it addes a certian type of fun to it, like who can be the sickest, dirtiest, gut slashin, head choppin, pillaging pirate.
Overall I love the violence :thumbup:

Now I'm very curious! :pir-sweet:
But if there is another concept this time, why is the name still "Pillage the Village"?
It sounds cruel and filled with violence. :pir-laugh:

Now I'm waiting for some silent hints! :pir-grin:

No no, it's called "Pillage the Village II", so different name. Different concept? You'll know in 5 days  :pir-sweet:
