Why do YOU need Minecraft?
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 5, 2015 @ 5:00pm FR/NST (8:00pm EST)

Minecraft is an epically awesome game, and a number of us here at Neocodex enjoy it very much (there is even a Neocodex server for the game that we have oodles of fun playing on!). However, it would totally rock for there to be even more Neocodex folks playing.
I know, time and again we hear the same tiring whine of, "But I don't want to pay for it!". My primary response to this comment is that purchasing Minecraft costs a single-time fee of $26.95 (which is less than most Neopets players spend on Neocash in a single week!). My second response is that y'all should shut your mouths and enter this contest, which will give to a single winner a Minecraft Card Code enabling them to legitimately download and play the game (please note that only legitimately purchased, downloaded, and registered copies of Minecraft are enabled to play on servers of any sort...and the game is tons more fun when played in a community setting).
YOUR ENTRIES FOR THIS CONTEST...
Should be submitted to me via PM by the indicated deadline and can consist of ANYTHING designed by you (a graphic, poetry, prose, song, screenplay, photo, video, craft, recipe, etc.; if in doubt, feel free to ask me whether a particular entry type is allowed) that conveys, with explanation provided if not obviously apparent, why you feel that YOU "need" Minecraft.
Entries will be posted for voting at the designated time, and the single entry with the most votes will walk away with a card code to buy/download a copy of Minecraft.
Despite also being the host, I am definitely going to be voting in this contest as well (even though I usually never think that a host should vote in contests that they oversee), since I'm one of the Minecraft diehards here at Neocodex.
GOOD LUCK, ALL!!!
EDIT: A note from @Strategist regarding the contest...
"To the winner: You may PM either myself or @Romy for the server details after you receive the game (you will need to choose a username and then forward that to us to be whitelisted on the server)."
