    I love Minecraft because, you can do so many things in it, like, Mining, Exploring, Building, and loads more, my favorite part is that you can even simulate Electronics, as you mentioned someone even made a 8-bit CPU, i seen someone making RAM too, and not to mention, epic Segment Displays.

    My country can’t use online paying techniques, like Paypal or Western Union, so i can’t buy it, i would love to win this game.

    Thanks :), my Minecraft username is the one i am posting from, (Rdogg112), by the way, i Love your blog, been here since the beginning :D

    I found MineCraft by watching a video from YouTube.

    This is where it started:

    In particular, I’m subscribed to “Seananners.” He started a MineCraft series and I watched the episodes when he uploads them. The game is all about creativity and exploration. The feedback I hear from this game is very positive. I’ve tried the free version, but I just don’t get as much kick out of that one. I used to play RuneScape and MineCraft reminds me of a first person POV version of RuneScape Classic, lol. I’d love to play this game for myself and share it with my friends.

    I LOVE Minecraft, but the only thing is all my freinds have it aswell…but the paid version…so I cant play online with them which realy sux because I am getting so lonley playing on my own with freeky kreepers blowing in my face!

    The thing I love most about Minecraft is that you can build amazingly cool things like DRAGONS, ROADS, HOUSES, ROCKETS and much much more, the thing I love most though is going into caves and ******* in my pants cause of the monster sounds and also because they just tend to jump on you when you least expect it xD

    But the main thing I would love to do is play with my friends, when I go over to there houses they usually seem to be playing minecraft on multiplayer…without me :( So I would realy love to win this as a prize, ty.

    I like it ‘cuz its a creative RPG game with oldchool graphic. I like it so much. And you can craft things like torch and weapons and things. The best you need to mine and explore and at the end you just need to enjoy the game with your house. So far im playing Minecraft Alpha on my neighbor’s comp.So far im play with the “classic” website edition. Almost all of my friends playing with the game. But i don’t have paypay or credit card. So if win i would be the happiest guy in the town and i could play with my friends together.

    Minecraft is already a very popular game and it has made millions while still in the Alpha stage. The reason it is so popular is because the possibilities are endless, you can literally do whatever you want. I think it’s amazing how open things are, and how people have even been able to use computer logic using redstone switches. I’ve played the Classic version quite a bit, but I have heard that the Survival mode is way better. I also really want to be able to have the game when the price goes up and the official version is released. It would be really awesome if I could win a copy, and so just to show gratitude for the contest I made this: click here.

    I would like to win this contest because it looks like a fun game, I built all sorts of castles and houses with legos when I was little. I have 4 friends that play on a server together. They were working on a main base and a tower for each of them with a track system going between each and they asked me to join, but I don’t have the money to buy it.
    I have tried the free version to get a feel for it, but it’s not the same when I can’t help my friends.

    I would love a copy of minecraft because of the creativity envolved along with the fighting and great retro graphics, I also have loads of ideas for huge things to make. I also know I will love this game, due to the fact that I have watched around 15 hours of gameplay footage of the game. I also had a friend who, a little while ago, said he would gift me a copy. Not long after that his dad said he couldn’t. Today his dad said he could gift me the game, I, obviously, got really excited, but when his dad got home, he changed his mind once again, so I feel as if I’v been conned twice. I even made things for my friend, including a skin for his character, which he said if I made he’d gift me a copy… So, I really wan’t minecraft

    Here is something I made
    Minecraft buildings

    Also, here is something I edited:

    Minecraft cat

    And a song I wrote/edited:
    Sun Light, a song based upon the brilliance of daytime in Minecraft

    Sun Light, Beautiful light, all is calm, all is bright,
    No Bad mobs will spawn under thee,
    Do not fear unwelcome company,
    Mine in Heavenly peace,
    Mine in Heavenly peace!

    Sun light, Beautiful light, Skeletons quake at the sight,
    Set ablaze by the glorious day,
    Most nasties are burned away,
    Cows and pigs will spawn,
    Cows and pigs will spawn!

    Sun light, Beautiful light, effective on many, but still one fright,
    The worst monsters in found in the game,
    Yes, creepers have to be slain,
    Mine in heavenly peace,
    Mine in heavenly peace!

    (To the tune of silent night)

    Im an architect student at Cal Poly SLO, so Id love to be able to have the game to be able to have something to make my designs in a physical representation, rather than in CAD, and AUTO CAD, since I cant veiw all the angles and alter it so specifically as one can in minecraft. also, another reason is that my brother has it, and wants to do SMP with me when I get it, and he lives on the east coast of the USA, so we rarely get to interact except on the phone. A lot of my friends at college have it too, and even in the architect school, and want to get a college-wide server up and running. and the last reason is that I dont have paypal/ and a credit card…

    I am currently building 1:2 scale model of the eiffel tower, and a 1:1 scale model of the kaufman house :D

    If I win, please gift it to abrown.

    I love minecraft because of the fact that you have to actually mine all your resources to build structures. That, combined with the fact that it is also a survival game with some rpg elements, a crafting system, and what not, makes this the best game ever in my opinion. name in minecraft is ciphyr.

    Minecraft is an awesome game, it’s a true example that graphics aren’t what makes a game, it’s the gameplay. It may be a bit blocky, hmm, blocks only actually, but that keeps it simple.

    I have been playing the free minecraft game and have even set up a server for it, too bad it involves no roleplaying whatsoever. The Alpha version does!

    Wow.. first of all i like to thank you for this opportunity for us folks to get this game!.

    Well why i would like to have this game?:
    Well i really love the games where you can explore, craft, make traps, kill monster and create your own world.

    I found out about this game trough a forum where i spend some of my time at. And a guy there had created a server, free version. where we could come in and build and create stuff, eventually i got tutor/admin position because i acted mature and spended a lot of time there.

    I wish i still had my pic on my comp so i could show you my work on minecraft.

    And now some of my friends play it also and they talk about it at school etc etc.. And i really like to have this game.

    This game is also a perfect example that the graphic dosent make the game. the gameplay does, i have played alot of tibia where the graphic suck to, but the gameplay is just great.

    Why i cant buy this game?:
    Well i dont got either pay pal or any credit card.

    I really like you to choose me cause the last months i have been longing for this game! but i havent been able to get until now.

    I like to thank you again for this opportunity.

    Minecraft is a game that goes as far as you want it to. No limitation. Creativity and imagination from the second you log on, to the time you shut your computer off. I truly want this game so that I can enjoy it to its fullest, with the friends of mine that already have the game. I think it would be an honor to win the game in a contest such as this one. From now till December 10/20 I will be crossing my fingers and hoping i get the gold :)

    Even the name says it all. The ability to craft/create anything you can imagine into a world set out just for you. The possibilities are endless and introduces a new style of gameplay, one that I’d love to experience as the most creative game I’ve known and hopefully able to play.

    Tried playing the free version online but my internet is so slow it just lags every half second.

    Anyway, hope to win, fingers crossed and congrats for whoever does gets this awesome prize.

    I want this game because it’s overall amazing. My friends play it all the time, and since I don’t have it I’m restricted to playing the free version on the website. I very much enjoy the free one, but it doesn’t give you that feel of adventure the paid one seems to give everyone. In the Alpha you have to actually go out and find the things you want to build with while in the free version you have it all already. I want to be able to craft tools and objects to create giant fortresses with working doors and traps. Thank you for considering!

    I have been playing it since the alpha free weekend and the game was just pure genius. Notch i take my hat of to you for creating one of the most addictive games of all time.

    Me and my little sister have been playing for a while, but just single player. We would love to start up an SMP server for our family and friends as this thing has spread like wildfire through out our household.

    I would have already bought the game, but i do not have a credit card or pay pal which sucks!

    I feel that minecraft is an amazing game, it’s so innovative and creative. I enjoy being able to build my creations and have fun with them. I enjoyed building my own world it was so awesome!!! I couldn’t possibly find another game that let me make my own personal palace. Minecraft is like a personal world you can run away to, in real life I’m just some regular person but in minecraft I can become the king of a great utopia or even a God in a way. I love playing this game, I would have payed for this game the instant I first played but I am still a minor and my parents have enough debt as it is. I’d love to play this game with friends I’ve even told numerous friends about this game and they bought it. I would be so overjoyed to be able to come home and play such a beautiful game with my buddies. Minecraft is like the imaginary world I dream of; this game is simply stunning, even when I play by myself I am awestruck at how thoughtful you guys were to making a game where the players could build there own kingdoms. If I am able to buy or get this game I won’t need a Christmas gift when for christmas I can create my dreams. My username is sierftban. I may sound like a corny fan boy but I love this game. Please help me

    Well, I was playing some free 2 play game with my friends and they were talking about minecraft! I was like “What is minecraft”. I searched google and got this youtube result. So, I clicked it. Then I started getting into the whole Survivalt thing. I wanted to play, but I noticed when I went to the site it said that you had to buy the game and there is a free one called minecraft classic. When I played it, at first I had no idea what I was doing. Then later I was like “Whoa minecraft classic is so fun! But it would be much better if I earned my blocks.” I knew that I needed to find blocks in alpha because I saw all of these videos about minecraft. I thought Minecraft alpha will put my creativity into test :) Well, this is my reason why I want it. I want to survive and be creative and build things while I earn it.

    I was told about MineCraft by a few friends. I went on to the website and tried the free version and was instantly hooked. The ability to do pretty much what ever you want is amazing, and I have seen several pieces of MineCraft “Art” that just make the game better. When I tried the free version, I built a large house that eventually turned into a large replica of the Pyramids at Giza. If I don’t ever get the full MineCraft I will continue making pyramids. If I do get the full version, I will still continue making pyramids. (The difference being if I get the full version, I’ll dig up some sand to build them.) I don’t know if this will work, but I’m trying to build a large city built on stilts and then I would remove the stilts to have a floating city. My username is spiritbear43.

    Happy Mining!

    I’ve played minecraft for about a year now. I found it fun, but wanted to try out alpha. However, I don’t have a credit card, and my parents don’t trust anything oline, so this way i can play minecraft before it goes into beta and get all of the cool things to come. Recently, i have played the alpha free version (the one that notch gave away himsel’f) but as it was only the exe, i’m not able to play it online. Playing classic online is really fun, but it lacks the essentials, doors, tools, certain blocks, fancy lighting, etc.

    Hello,I’ve known about minecraft for sometime now, I’ve made countless bulding/structures on the Classic version. A couple months ago it was a free to play weekend, I loved it. Unfortunately the weekend ended so fast… I was so desperate to get minecraft before the 20th because I would of had to pay for the updates thus meaning I would never be able to play it with friends again, I searched up a way to get minecraft free without downloading some crack/serial keygen that would most likely give me a virus. Luckly I found this and it lifted some of my hopes in getting this game.

    Thankyou for your time El.

    I like minecraft, because it is a fantastic artistic outlet.

    The sheer volume of creaticity allowed in minecraft is astonishing.

    As an autistic teenager, I’ve found it hard to do basic things.

    But art I like, and minecraft has lots of art.

    My minecraft name is Arkaym. Thankyou.

    Hey, it’s me again, thought I’d come by to say that I tried to buy the game, but failed. I have a paypal account (Student one) and am $3.50 away from it, I asked my parents if they would give that money to me, and the answer was an abrubt no. They said that money is for Emergencies only. Oh well, thought I’d just hang by and check the progress. I wish everyone a great holiday, Minecraft or no Minecraft. Bye!
