Paper Mario: Sticker Star giveaway contest! [CLOSED]

Does everyone remember the Paper Mario: Sticker Star diorama contest that I entered a few weeks ago? Well, I WON! That's right, I was one of five lucky winners to get an amazing prize package from Nintendo! I started to scream when I read my e-mail, and then I sat down and cried with happiness for about ten minutes, and then I had a celebratory shot of whiskey which doubled as a nerve calmer.

Once I had my head on straight again I realized I was going to end up with two copies of Sticker Star. This is because I knew I was going to buy a copy on Sunday the 11th because even if I won the contest I wasn't going to be able to wait for them to ship me my copy. Who has that kind of patience?

***We interrupt your regularly schedule post to bring you these gratuitous photos of the prize pack***

Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS, $100 in eShop giftcards, and a red 3DS XL. 

A few glamour shots of the 3DS XL, because look at how beautiful it is! 

My paper trophy! It's so cute!

***Thank you for your patience during the photo interlude. You may now return to the regular post***

So then came the dilemma: what to do with my winning copy of Paper Mario: Sticker Star?

Host a giveaway, of course!!

This game is really excellent and I want to share the love with fellow Nintendo and Paper Mario fans! The contest will run for two weeks starting from today, Friday the 23rd, and it'll go until midnight PST Friday, December 7th. The winner will receive one (1) copy of Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS. The game is brand new and still sealed in its original box. The giveaway is open to US residents only (I'll be paying for shipping), so I apologize to any international readers!

Here's how you enter:

1. "Like" A Bit of Geek on Facebook!
2.  Tweet about the giveaway! ----"I just entered to win a copy of Paper Mario: Sticker Star from @abitofgeek Go to her post for your own chance to win!"
3. Comment here and tell me which Mario game is your favorite and why!

It's one entry per person, so just let me know that you've done the first two things in the same comment as your favorite Mario game! If you already 'like' A Bit of Geek on Facebook you won't be excluded from entering, don't worry!

The winner will be announced on Saturday, December 8th and will be chosen via random number generator. You'll have one week (7 days) to respond to me. If I don't hear back from the winner within that timeframe then I'll generate a second number.

Be sure to leave your e-mail address or your twitter account or something so that I can contact you!

Be sure to check back next week for my review of the game, too, just in case you need some nudging in the right direction :D

Good luck!


We have a winner!

Mai Koythong, congratulations! I will be contacting you shortly. Thank you to everyone that entered!



fave mario game is tough. I would say it would have to be Super Mario World on the SNES. Also I liked and tweeted, ya know.

Congrats again on winning, you totally deserved it!

Wow that's awesome that you won! My favorite Mario game hands down has to be Sunshine. It was my first ever console game and I love it to this day. It looks amazing for GameCube, it plays great, and I love FLUDD. My email is and my twitter is @SH4RPSH00T3R126 (I never check it though)

I'd have to say my favorite Mario game would be Super Mario 64. I still remember being in total aww over the graphics and being able to run in all directions not just left and right. And all the different completely different worlds inside the painting for you to explore.

Thanks for this contest! My favorite game is Super Mario World!
My twitter is DaisyKim. Thank you!! Goodluck to everyone!

Favorite has to be Mario & Luigi: Super Star Saga. It's got some of the best music in a Mario game, with the usual Nintendo polish on everything else, gameplay, graphics and story. Also liked and tweeted.

I gotta say Super Mario Sunshine, this game made me play for hours on just jumping around the plaza with FLUDD. Twitter: datricheezy

Best mario is the original paper mario or mario RPG. Both were very different from what we were used to and had amazing mechanics.

Oh, my favorite is definitely Super Mario Sunshine! The concept was just too cute! Cleaning away the sludge was superrrr satisfying.

Here's the tweet,

Liked and tweeted!

My favorite Mario is Mario RPG for the SNES. Then it's a tie between 3 and World. Then 1. That was hard for me to decide though... you're making me choose between my children, basically. You know, if my children included Koopas and a fat red plumber.

Here's my Twitter in case I somehow win:

Is it cheating if my fave mario game is Luigi's Mansion? hahaha
I guess if I have to choose a game with Mario as the main character it'd have to be New Super Mario Brothers

here's my tweet:

I already liked, but I don't have twitter...
Anyway, my favorite Mario Game is Paper Mario:The thousand year door because of the characters and the story line, I found it pretty good and entertaining. I like the little Yoshi who called Mario "Gonzales" haha.
I hope I can still win even if I don't have a twitter...
my e-mail is:

Paper Mario: TTYD is probably my favorite. It still had the Paper Mario nostalgia while having a really good storyline.

My fave is Super Mario 64, I feel like it's just the best accumulation of why Mario is so effortlessly whimsical and compelling. So much to do, and rarely space for boredom. I love it.

Liked the page and posted the tweet. Congrats on winning!

My favorite Mario game is Super Mario 64 because I have wonderful memories playing it with my family when I was growing up!

Gotta go with Super Mario Bros.!

Facebook Page: liked!

Pick my favorite "I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens." well if I must it would be Mario and Luigi partners in time. The concept of the game is very fresh, yet it has a classic feel and allot of the older character make there appearance like Lakitu (a personal favorite). Mostly though its getting to see baby Mario and Luigi sooo cute.
I don't tweet but my email is ill be keeping my fingers arms and toes crossed.

My favourite Mario game is probably Super Mario Sunshine, coz it was so fun to play with the water, haha.

I liked your page on FB. Here's my tweet!:

My favorite game: Super Mario 64, I grew up with it and it was one of the first games I fully beat.
