Didn't you see where I said: "That's all for now"? :imperialguard_commander1:

Guess you'll have to wait and see, huh? :pir-devil: :pir_laugh2:

In case anyone can't tell, I plan to stay with the theme of this contest until it's over, so expect plenty of good old-fashioned cruelty at sea!  :pir-skull:

You know you love it. :pir_kiss:

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

You're just an Admiral Wannabe. :imperialguard_commander1:  I'm a fo-shizzlin' beezl-botang! :pir_laugh2: No, I don't think you count as staff. That's kind of the Mods and Admins, if you know what I mean. Or maybe just the Admins. I dunno. Wait for the all-resturant-owning-lord IS to talk to us about it. Besides, I think Mods are included, based on how he said what he said when he said what he said. Believe it or not, that makes sense. :pir-tongue:

This has got to be one of the best contests ever judging by the prizes. I just hope I get some time and inspiration to build something.

Been "lurking" these boards for quite some time but decided to register just for this!  (Hopefully recent registries are eligible!). I missed out on the Pirate theme the first time around, but I'm really excited about the new 2009 line and can't wait to see what kind of MOCs you guys come up with (and might be inspired to build my own!)

HAHAHA. That's the spirit. Sorry Mister Phes, but you have no way out of this one - or maybe we might spare you if you post the rules?

Give us rules and a theme... Or the theme will be...: the bloody end of Great-Admiral mister Phes!

And yes, you obviously will be seeing much violence, torture, killing of innocent people...

Hey, HEY! Hold it. Sure, I'd love to take a swing at Phes too :skull:, but this thread isn't about the timely massacre of Mister Phes. It's about the prize pool for Pillage the Village, and soon, hopefully, the rules. So, just make sure you stay in check. :wink:

Back on topic, I'd really like to see what this creative critic is about. Giving those who do not posses pirate LEGO an opportunity for a prize is a great idea!

But does the box make that big a difference anyway? I've never got the whole box thing. I collect LEGO, not packaging. If I buy a set, I open it, and throw out or flat pack the box. I'd love to have a BSB, but I wouldn't pay one cent more for one that had a box as well.
Exactly. The only reason that someone would want the box (besides treasuring it) that I can think of is so they can go and sell the whole MISB set on eBay, but then why would you even enter the contest? That's no fun...

And why do you guys want rules? That's something I don't want. :pir-tongue:

Pillage of the Village contest, ON!
