SocioTown Secret Santa Winners!

Monday, December 30th, 2013

boxedgift

Here’s a surprise for Suzan1, Midgit and OhGee! You can thank your Secret Santas for their nice wishes. :)

To: Suzan1

From: Suzan1’s Secret Santa

I want Su to get the gift because she’s one of the bestest person I’ve ever met in SocioTown. Plus, I love to chat with her, and chatting is one of my favourite things to do in SocioTown. I remember the other day I spent so much time on SocioTown, just because we were having an argument. Don’t worry, it’s nothing serious. Both of us had so much fun and we even pulled my Socio bf into it. :P

With love,

Your Secret Santa

***

To: Midgit

From: Midgit’s Secret Santa

I want to give a gift to my good friend Midgit, because he is very kind and generous. He makes me laugh when I am down, although I haven’t really talked to him much because he is busy with school and other things. I want to show my act of kindness and thank him for letting me smile.

***

To: OhGee

From: OhGee’s Secret Santa

I nominate Ohgee… Ohgee has been in game, and a guide since the start. I too was once a guide, and I can attest to the fact that we (game players and staff alike) are very lucky to have her with us. She is fair, funny, smart and a definite asset to the game. If anyone deserves a thank you in the way of a gift, let alone a call out… it is Ohgee. Thank you for considering her!

This group of friends had a blast with their very own Christmas party. They had music, gifts, great decor and atmosphere, and loads of fun! Although this is a great picture already, the group also sent a couple more pictures that are worth a look.

Fashion Contest: White & Red Christmas

Winner: Aliciania

aliciania3

aliciania-2

“I’m wearing the Casual Xmas Jacket, Red Santa Cap and the Red Flat Boots (I’m also wearing the Red Shorts but you can’t see them because my outfit is covering it :P).

My reasons for this combination is, obvious, it’s red and white. Plus, the Jacket is the coolest one in town, fashionable, warm and totally Christmassy. The boots help me walk in the snow that’s going to fall pretty soon (latest by Christmas). And the Cap, well that’s to show the holiday spirit.

Merry Christmas, Socians.”

Great outfit, Aliciania! :D

The PR Giveaway winner will be in a separate post.

You have to be in a relationship with another player for this one (couples, rejoice!). Bring me a picture of you hugging another player near a decorated potted plant (sort of a Christmas tree in the game).

To take a screenshot, you can use this tutorial (OTBS and SocioTown are not affiliated with the site). Send your entries to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com with the subject BMAP: Day 8, so I’ll know your image is for this round. Include your full SocioTown name and the name of your partner. If your picture followed the instructions and is the first one to arrive in my mail, you and your partner will receive 50 SoBucks each!

Spread some holiday cheer through hugs! :)

12 Days of BMAP: Day 7 (and Day 6’s Winner)

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Don’t you worry, day seven’s not in a hurry!

For this round, bring me a picture of you and two friends at Shaggy’s place at night. One of your friends should be drinking a lemonade, the other one eating a burger, and you eating some fries. Shaggy could do a visit every now and then, especially this holiday season. :)

Here’s a screenshot tutorial if you don’t know how to take one (take note that OTBS and SocioTown are not affiliated to the site). Send your entries to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com with the subject BMAP: Day 7, so I’ll know it’s for this round. Don’t forget to include your full SocioTown name and the names of your two friends. The first one to send the correct image wins 50 SoBucks to all the participants in the picture.

You’ll each be receiving the same amount of SoBucks, so grab some friends and go on a journey to Shaggy’s! Don’t forget the lemonade and food. ;)

Farhat filled the night air with wonderful songs! Congratulations on winning Day 6.

12 Days of BMAP: Day 6 (and Day 5’s Winners)

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Day 6, and the contest is still going strong!

For today, bring me a picture of you or someone playing an instrument in the park.

If you don’t know how to take a screenshot, you can refer to this tutorial here. Send your entry to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com with the subject BMAP: Day 6, so I’ll know it’s for this round. Include your full SocioTown name and the name of the one playing the instrument, if it’s not you playing. You will get 50 SoBucks, and 30 SoBucks to the one playing the instrument (if not you).

Spread some holiday cheer with your instruments! :D

djotto-sumayyah

Here's Djotto with Sumayyah serenading Mondo with a wonderful Christmas carol. Good job, Djotto and Sum!

12 Days of BMAP: Day 5 (and Day 4’s Winners)

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

Day 5, here we go! :D

For this round, bring me a picture of you and a friend serenading your favorite NPC! Sing a Christmas carol to a Non-Playable Character of your choice — be it Phil, BillyRob, or even your Sponsor; it’s up to you and your friend. You and your friend must also wear something that’s Christmas-themed. It doesn’t have to be a whole set of outfit; a hat or a shirt will do as long as it is recognizable.

If you don’t know how to screenshot, you can follow this neat tutorial from the web (it’s not affiliated to SocioTown and OTBS, though).

Send your entry to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com with the subject: BMAP Day 5, so I’ll know it’s for this round. Include your full SocioTown name, as well as your friend’s. If your image got in my email first and you followed the entire instructions, you and your friend will get 50 SoBucks each!

Also, if you’ve won a round already, try to encourage your SocioTown friends to join instead. :)

The winners of Day 5: Sumayyah, Rockdoody, Asie, China1 and Cherlena! Nice Christmas caps, everyone.
