Keep in mind that this is just the parade! Judging of any entries has not started yet. We will continue accepting new entries until January 1.

Here are some more of the entries. The rest will be shown in another parade. These were a lot of fun to visit! I hope other people will check them out as well and maybe get ideas and have a good time. Click on the picture to go to the place page.

Wrapping Up the Gifts

Now that all the GOODBLOX holiday gifts have gone out, it’s time to clue you in on what the gifts are and how they work.

Over the past three weeks, people have randomly been finding gifts in their Stuff collection. You got a gift if you met a certain condition at the time when the gift was being given out. The condition was different for every gift.

Each gift had a 4-day cycle. You had two days to meet a gift’s requirements, and then it was given out. It was then put on sale in the Catalog for two more days in case you didn’t meet the requirements in time. Each gift opened on Christmas to reveal what was inside. Due to popular demand, you will be able to keep the boxes (some might even argue that the boxes are the real collector’s item).

Here’s a list of all the gifts. “Number awarded” is the total number of people who got the gift for free.


Crimson Gift of Good Citizenship

Number awarded: 769
What was inside: Racing Helmet

Who got it: All accounts that had logged in since Dec 1st AND didn’t have any moderation actions placed against them for the 30 days before it was given out.


Chancy Gift of Roshambo

Number awarded: 80
What was inside: Scissors

Who got it: All accounts who beat deo at
Rock Paper Scissors by putting “rock” somewhere in their profile blurb.



Lucrative Gift of Mercantilism

Number awarded: 1335
What was inside: Tixsplosion

Who got it: All accounts who had ever completed at least one currency trade.



Neon Gift of Self-Actualization

Number awarded: 242
What was inside: Thought Fortress

Who got it: All accounts who posted a comment on the gift.


Tragic Gift of Reparations

Number awarded: 118
What was inside: Helm of the Flashing Bolt

Who got it: All accounts who were killed by a GOODBLOX admin at Santa’s Winter Stronghold from Dec 14 to Dec 16.


Royal Gift of Kings

Number awarded: 315
What was inside: Golden Top Hat of Bling Bling

Who got it: All accounts who had owned at least one of the following hats: Golden Crown, The Void Star, The Crown of Warlords, Princess Hat, Tiara, Golden Tiara, Golden Egg of Kings, Domino Crown, or the Nitro Crown.


Ruby Gift of Ambassador

Number awarded: 221
What was inside: The Fire Skull of Evermoor

Who got it: All accounts who had successfully referred at least one user to GoodBlox via the Share GoodBlox with a Friend mechanism.



Sparkling Gift of Championship

Number awarded: 110
What was inside: Platinum Crown

Who got it: All accounts with the Bloxxer Badge
(KOs > 250 and KOs > WOs).



Icy Gift of Surprise

Number awarded: 78
What was inside: Frozdeeri

Who got it: All accounts who completed the huge puzzle spanning multiple games to achieve the gift.


The idea behind the gifts was not that people would collect them all – I don’t think most people got them all for free. Some of them were meant to be easy to get, others hard. Some were meant to be obvious, others cryptic. I tried to make most gifts the sort that new players had just as good of a chance of getting as veterans. At the end of the day, who can argue with getting free stuff?

And for the first time ever, we had an awesome LIVE event on Christmas to reveal what was inside all the gifts.
There was a 10-minute countdown for everyone to get into the game, and then one-by-one, gifts were brought up and exploded to reveal what was inside. Whenever a gift opened during the event, it also opened on-site, and everyone who owned a gift earned whatever was inside of it. It was LIVE, in REAL TIME!
If you missed out, or you’d like to re-experience the event, you can always replay the event here. The initial countdown has been lowered to 2 minutes for replays.

Happy Holidays!

Something’s up in downtown GoodBloxia…

Hey everyone, Ezra here reporting in the downtown area.

There have been some mysterious doors appearing, and we don’t know where they lead or who built them. These doors have strange properties, such as a queue or just being unable open them. If you have any leads, please contact me as soon as possible.

The site has been hacked!

Attention all GOODBloxians,
At this moment in time, the entire site has been seemingly compromised and everyone is panicking. Accounts are being hijacked left and right, with avatars and bios even being altered. Things are not looking to good out there.

From the initial start of the incident to where we are now, the situation has been increasing in urgency. We’ve done all we can so far, that is why we call upon all of you to act. It’s up to you to help us fix this mess.

Speculation and rumors state that there is supposedly a secretive cult-like temple hidden somewhere in all of GOODBloxia, with ties to the perpetrator of this entire incident in the first place. We’ve attempted to investigate but we were unable to proceed to due an Obstacle in the Enterance. What I need from you, is to find it. Find it, and somehow find a way in to see if there’s anything we can use to at least slow the hijacking of accounts and ultimately, the destruction of Goodblox as we know it. I’m sure there is more to unpack in the second image.

The time is now to work together. As one. Without teamwork and co-operation, we and the rest of Goodblox will fall. We cannot allow this to happen. Please. Help us.

Act now. As one.

Sincerely,
A surviving past moderator.

GOODBLOX Winter Wonderland Contest

It’s a building contest. Hooray!

The theme is wintery holiday type stuff, so get your creative wheels spinning and show us what you can do with the idea of a Winter Wonderland. Make a place that’s fun for you and your friends to play in!

Winter Wonderland

Each contestant will build a Winter Wonderland. What will go into your Wonderland? Here are some ideas:

  • A skating pond
  • A snow fort
  • A ski lift
  • Ice sculptures
  • Sleds
  • Gifts under trees

You can use existing models and anything published to the Toolbox in your creation. Entries will be judged according to:

  • Originality (show us something new and exciting)
  • Winteryness (it is a Winter Wonderland, you know)
  • Fun (is your level fun?)
  • Awesomeness (The “Wow! How did he do that?!” effect)
  • Popularity (if you’ve had 20 people playing in your map since you’ve released it, that’s got to count for something)

How do I Enter the Contest?

Only a limited number of entries will win. The winners will receive 1200 G$ and an Exclusive Contest Hat. Winners will be revealed at the end of the contest. Everyone who enters will also receive a free hat just for participating!

Cool entries will be shown off in the News in a parade style throughout the duration of the contest. All entries will be judged by the GOODBLOX Team.

Do not make a new account for this contest! To enter, you MUST send a message to rocket with the following information.

1. Title your message “Winter Wonderland Contest”
2. Link your contest place in the body of the message.
The account that sends the message must have the Winter Wonderland place on it. Prizes will go to this account, no substitutions.
3. Call your place “__________ Winter Wonderland” where your account name is in the blank.
Example: rocket’s Winter Stronghold.

Q: Will Builder’s Club be one of the prizes?
A: No.

Q: Can I enter more than once?
A: No.

Q: Can I work with a friend?
A: Yes, but the prize will only go to the account with the place on it.

Q: Can I use my other account?
A: Yes, but the prize will go there.

Q: Do I have to use the previously published Stronghold?
A: No. You can start with a new blank place.

Q: I have no available place slots!
A: You can overwrite one of your current places for the contest and revert it once the contest is over.

The contest starts now! It ends on January 1 at noon Eastern time. The results will be announced on Monday, January 4. I can’t wait to start seeing what you guys come up with this time. Have fun!

Holiday Gifts!

By popular request, we are reprising last season’s crazy gift-giving spree.

Even now, some of you will be browsing your My GoodBlox page and notice an interesting object in your inventory: the Crimson Gift of Good Citizenship.

This gift was given to users who, as of this morning:

  1. Have logged in since December 1st, AND
  2. Didn’t have any moderation actions taken against them in the last month (reminders, warnings, bans, etc).

The GOODBLOX Team would like to thank these people for being such good citizens!

Information About Gifts

Some information about the gift spree, for those of you who were not around earlier this year:

  • Gifts are given out for meeting specific conditions. In the past we have given gifts to every player who had 500 profile views, or 50 place visits, or an inbox brimming with unread messages. Sometimes it will be obvious what these are. Often it will be a mystery.
  • If you meet the conditions at the time when the gift is being given, you get the gift.
  • If you don’t, you don’t. Each gift is given out once and only once.
  • Don’t worry, you will get a chance to purchase the gifts you’ve missed before they open.
  • All gifts will eventually open. Players who own a gift box will get the gift that is inside automatically. The name of the gift box changes to let you know it has opened.
  • Once a gift has opened, there is no way to get it if you missed it. It’s very unlikely that GOODBLOX will ever repeat a gift that we’ve used before.
  • Some gifts will be easy to get. Others not so much.
