Let’s keep this ball rolling folks, James has another Donation Drive headed your way. As we creep past the halfway mark of James’ shift, we’re hoping to explode with excitement on this Minecraft Kickstarter lot. 0144_03_MinecraftKSLot


This entire lot can be yours for donations of only $7.77 or multiples thereof. We will run this donation drive until 3:30 PM PST.

Oh Minecraft, that amazing thing that happens when you take out almost all the elements of a game except for gathering materials and then putting it together to make some really cool stuff. Who knew it would be so addictive, those darned Creepers ensnaring adult and child alike in their green, pixelated grasp? So, in days of yore, when Minecraft was on Kickstarter, Notch and his crew put together some really spectacular backer rewards like a Wind-up creeper toy, perfect for tormenting cats, and a Pig Bank, for all your spare change since you aren’t leaving the house anymore to spend money, because you just need a bit more wood…

contains (from this campaign: 
– DVD signed by 2 Player Productions – $60 tier prize
– wind-up Creeper toy – $60 tier prize
– Poster signed by Notch – $250 tier prize
– Pig Bank – $500 tier prize

Minecraft Collaboration Lot

Introducing collaborative lots! These prize lots are a wonderful collection of items donated by various crafters and sponsors, each one with a particular theme. For our final prize teaser, we present the Minecraft lot… read on for all the juicy and blocky details.

It’s all well and good to decorate your Minecraft home with delightful worldly goods, but what about decorating your real-world home with delightful Minecraft goods? This lot is full of fantastic Minecraft pieces to put in your home, as well as books full of gameplay tips and tidbits. The lot contains:

Handpainted Minecraft buttons

Created & donated by Tina Bongorno

Who needs more Minecraft merch in their lives? YOU do! These are handpainted wooden Minecraft pins that you can place on your favorite fabric object to show off how super cool and in-the-know you are when it comes to this new-fangled Minecraft thing the youngins are all talking about. Included images are: a pig, a creeper, a ghast, a skeleton, and that good ol’ ubiquitous block of dirt and grass!

The buttons are 1″ each, and are acrylic paint on a wooden disc, with a metal pin back attached.


Minecraft Embroidery Set

Created & donated by Stephanie Martin

While you’re out exploring, crafting and fighting off monsters, make sure to make your home ready as well! This set of Minecraft embroidery hoops are ready to decorate any explorer’s abode. Each one is hand sewn and shows various things from the game: A creeper, a diamond sword, and a block of redstone.

The pieces are 3 inches in diameter (7.6cm) and 3/8 inch (1cm) thick, and use wood embroidery hoops, felt and embroidery thread.

Creeper Head cross stitch

Created & donated by Kamina Kapow

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. We suggest keeping the face of your enemy very close indeed, sitting on the sideboard in your living room, a reminder to lock your doors at night and maybe build a lava-filled moat. This creepy cross stitch comes in a sweet little standing frame, and has a charm belying its explosive nature.

Our first live auction has concluded with a victory by chat user Deathofrat for $1919.19. It was a tense back and forth between Omega_Lairon dropping the bids and Deathofrat squeaking ahead!

We had a slightly slow start but when our very own Fugi dropped his weight into the ring the chaos was unleashed. Throw in a couple of wonderful pig sweeteners, (one of them being a very appropriate Minecraft diamond stitch), and the bids climbed high to push us into almost $20,000.00 raised on James’ shift in only 4 hours!

There’s probably not a lot I can write here about Notch that you don’t already know. He made Minecraft. He’s making Scrolls. He founded the Mojang AB game studio. He called into Desert Bus last year. He’s an awesome dude.

If you care to laud his work on Minecraft, or find out what it’s like to have made one of the most successful indie games of recent memory, if not all time, your chance is now!
