Win Animal Crossing socks, necklace, and earrings! ⊟
Do you want to be decked out head to toe… er, head and toe in Animal Crossing designs from Fangamer? I know I do, which is why it’s so hard for me to part with the Town Lawn socks and Leaf jewelry Fangamer sent us.
But here I am, somehow overcoming my own avarice to give away two sets of Animal Crossing apparel! All you gotta do is leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite piece of Animal Crossing furniture, between now and Friday night, 11:59pm ET.
Oh, and if you’re an Ambassador+1 or higher tier Club Tiny member, you’ve done enough! You get automatic entry into our contest! Thanks for supporting us! And thanks to Fangamer! You’re always welcome in our town~
Want a Hobonichi Techo planner, a desk calendar filled with photos of Itoi’s dog, & other goodies? ⊟
We have several of those to give away, thanks to the kindness of 1101 — yes, that same company led by Shigesato Itoi, creator of the celebrated Earthbound / Mother series.
Here’s what we want to give you:
- The 2014 edition of the Hobonichi Planner we lauded to the ends of the Earth last year (seriously, best planner ever — WATCH THIS)
- Desk calendars featuring photos of Itoi’s super cute dog Bouillon (comes with a whiteboard marker you can use with the calendar)
- Techo covers (including the expensive leather Arts & Sciences cover), various stencil sets, these sticky things, and other accessories!
The contest is the same as last year: just post a reblog or leave a comment telling us what you’d do with your Hobonichi Techo and/or the calendar if you won them. Make sure to use your real email so we can contact you if you win. We’ll pick the best answers a week from now!
Robby Duguay • 12 GB of Christmas
Here’s the best new holiday chiptune album, Robby Duguay’s 12 GB of Christmas (shout-outs to Doctor Octoroc’s 8-Bit Jesus, which has been holding it down for years). There’s only four preview tracks online, but oh my gawd, when that first track, “MegaChild”, breaks down around 1:24? This was my face. And “Deck the Zones”, the Sonic tribute? Kris Kringle be wylin out to that joint. It’s like the Christmastime equivalent of M.O.P.’s "Ante Up".
We have a bunch of free codes to download the entire album for free. Want one? Just reblog or leave a comment telling us what your favorite chiptune song/album was in 2013. Or if you don’t listen to chiptunes, just tell us what your jam was in the Year of Lugi. I’ll pick some random winners tomorrow morning and send you the codes (if you’re leaving a comment, make sure to use your real email address)!
And if you don’t want to wait until tomorrow morning, you can cop the album for like seven bones. Joys be thine, kids.
Win a Shantae-themed 3DS ⊟
..and WayForward’s whole eShop catalog! All you have to do is draw some Shantae fanart for this Crunchyroll contest. “Fan art includes, but is not limited to: drawings, sculptures, macaroni glitter art — as long as you can send it in as a JPEG format image.” You have until October 4. Keep it clean.
Speaking of, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero passed its Kickstarter goal this week, and has 10 days left to get additional funding!

Win this stuff during the #WEEK OF TINY ⊟
The Tiny Cartridge birthday celebration rolls on! If you’d like to get in on our week-long giveaway, all you need to do is answer our daily questions in the comments or with a reblog — we’ll pick our favorite responses this Sunday.
Tonight’s question: "What do you want us to cover more?" Give us specifics about what games or trends are coming up that you want us to keep an eye on, especially if it’s something we’ve ignored so far!
What prizes will be giving away? Three Mercenary Kings (Early Access, image via F12adventures) codes donated by Tribute, Tiny Cartridge stickers and buttons, amazing Mega Man posters from Adam Sidwell, a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate minipack (3DS and Wii U copies), a Pokemon megapack (hella DS/3DS games, the Nope x Mare Odomo-designed badges and shirt, and more), and anything else we find in our closets between now and Sunday.
Why does Tiny Cartridge suck? ⊟
We’re giving away a bunch of stuff as part of our birthday festivities! If you’d like to get in on these prizes, all you have to do is answer our #WEEK OF TINY questions to help us make the site better.
Tonight’s question: "What can we do to improve Tiny Cartridge?" Comment or reblog your answer about how we should stop posting dumb GIFs, or should reblog more, or should eat butts, whatever — we’ll pick the best responses at the end of the week and reward them with free games and more.
The Week of Tiny! Get some free stuff! ⊟
To celebrate our little site’s fifth birthday, we’re giving away some fun stuff we’ve accumulated over the years. All you have to do to enter is answer the #WEEK OF TINY posts/questions we’ll post over the next few days.
Today’s question: "What do you visit/follow Tiny Cartridge for?" Leave your answer in our comments or a reblog to enter — make sure they’re substantive/not forgettable, as we’ll pick out our faves/winners this Sunday.
So what are we giving away? For starters, a Pokemon Megapack (7+ DS/3DS games, shirts, and more), a Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Minipack, Tiny Cartridge pins/stickers, and whatever else we manage to find in our closets. You can’t even find/buy a few of these items anywhere.
Yes, we’re counting comments from our birthday post yesterday, and the contest is open to all countries (though some games are region-locked). Make sure to use a real email address when commenting so we can contact you — naturally, we won’t share it with anyone because we aren’t terrible people.
Make a Techo case out of card stock and a rubber band
This awesome idea/GIF comes from Zachary Reese, who didn’t feel like spending beaucoup bucks on a case for his Hobonichi Techo. I have to say, though, that having a case is still pretty useful for its built-in bookmark, pen holder, and pockets for accessories.
Okay, so the winners of our #tiny_techo contest!:
Many apologies for the delay on announcing our winners (we had to pass on a winner since we never heard back from him). And we wish we could have picked more winners — we received hundreds of entries from people sharing what they’d fill their diary with, many of them offering great ideas, but we only had two Techos to give away. :o(
If you’re still dying to get a Techo, it’s definitely worth buying one even in March, as I previously explained in our review. Plenty of our readers have reported buying one, and I haven’t seen any of them not praise the planner.
Reminder: Hobonichi Techo giveaway!
If you’re looking for creative ideas, check out some of the photos collected on Statigram with the Hobonichi Techo tag — that’s where I pulled the above photos from Mylittleoctopus and Yellow_elephant. And of course, there’s the Hobonichi Love Tumblr.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star contest winners, including the beautiful picnic scene by Gigi D.G. we posted a few days ago. The other entries are by Daniel P. (the raft scene), David M. (the amazing tower with Goomba boss fight), Dominik K. (the windmill), and Miranda E. (Mario straight up stomping a Koopa). They’re all wonderful!
I really want a Paper Mario diorama in my house now. I need some crafting time, and to become one of these people.
Want a free download code for the new eShop edition for Cave Story? We have a couple to give away to two North American Nintendo 3DS owners!
All you need to do is answer one of these two trivia questions in our comments. Make sure to use your real email address, so we can contact you!
They’re pretty easy to answer if you follow our site, or are familiar with the silliness of Cave Story! Big ups to Nicalis for providing us with the codes — don’t forget about NightSky releasing to eShop on October 25.
[Update: Well, that ended quick… Thanks to everyone who kept a close eye on the contest, and to @Nicalis!]

We recently asked our readers to “describe Balrog” for a chance to win a Mac App Store copy of Cave Story +. We got tons of fun responses, because you’re all brilliant, but in the end we did the terrible duty of reducing the list down to five winners, to whom we’ve handed out the codes. Huzzah, etc. Here’s who we picked:
- Axel described Balrog as “an Altoids tin who only comes in one flavor: bumbling.”
- wuuds said “Balrog is the craziest enemy I’ve ever fought. I mean the guy wears suspenders over his eyes… WITHOUT PANTS! I still have nightmares…”
- Blue gave us the paradox of Balrog: A bar of soap that’ll make your hands dirty. A lunchbox that’ll leave you hungry. A briefcase that’ll get you fired. A suitcase that’ll leave you shivering in the cold. A hollow brick that’ll cause your house to tumble. A broken drive that you decided to for some unfathomable reason to pop into your OS. What did it say? Well, what did you expect?”
- Zachaeus Medneslon said, enigmatically, “A commentary on modern man.”
- How does Chris Kraft know? “Balrog pees sitting down and poops standing up.”
Congrats to the five of you, thanks to Nicalis for the generous offer of prizes, and “stay tuned” or whatever you do to a website for more opportunities to win this game!
