Greetings commanders,
We are still celebrating the free shipping with J!NX offer and one contests is good, but you know what's even better? Two contests!
We have just closed the previous creative contests and whilst that's being judged we have decided to start the second one! It will be slighly trickier, and will require a bit more of your time, but I'm sure you will agree that it's worth it!
The Contest
  • Go to the J!NX website
  • Look at the World of Tank products and count the number of tanks you see on the products! (Please note that the cup is not included, so ignore it :p).
  • Post the number you got with a J!NX themed limerick in the thread HERE!
Limerick? I thought that was a city in Ireland...
  • It is, but it's also a short poem! Please see these two links (here and here) for details on how you write them. Please note that it has to include the word J!NX at least once!
The rules
  • One entry per person
  • The contest will run from now until Sunday October 20th, 23:59. Entries after that time will be ignored
  • Please make sure you post the limerick and number of tanks in the right location (i.e, not here, but HERE!)
  • This thread is for contest related questions only, not spam / off-topic!
  • The winner will be chosen by the community team and published for all to see once the contest is over
Prizes
  • 1st place: One awesome J!NX hoodie + 4500 gold + one Bonus code!
  • 2nd place: 3000 gold + one Bonus Code!
  • 3rd place: 2000 gold + one Bonus code!
  • 4th place: 750 gold + one Bonus code!
  • 5th place: 500 gold + one Bonus code!
  • 6-10th place: One Bonus Code
So commanders, are you up for the task?

I'll give you an example Limerick
To show my writing skills are pretty slick
Remember to say Jinx
And not Ja ja Binx
Mesa sorry but I did this really quick!
A type for getting rhyming words on your limerick, I used http://www.rhymezone.com/ there is also various other rhyming word websites out there.

Ummm... Part of a tank (for example: turret) counts? Or only whole tanks?

" The post will only be visible to you and the community team and once a winner has been selected we will publish it on the main competition thread."
.

I suppose we have to go with the all encompassing 'World of Tanks' idea and class everything as a ..........tank. :smile: ........I hope.

The number does not have to be part of the limerick, the number of tanks and the limerick are two separate things.

I just checked and I can see it, so it may just be that it's not visible to you guys. Rest assured, if you post in the thread, it's in the contest.

IMPORTANT!
Simply posting the number of tanks is not enough (as many have done), without the limerick your entry is VOID AND INELIGIBLE TO WIN!

The votes have been counted and the winners decided!

First though let's get the the answer to the important question, how many tanks were there on J!NX products?
The answers ranged from 5 to 38(!) and I think this shows just how important it is to read the rules!

The correct answer is..... 12!
Spoiler                     

I'd also like to point out that a few of you wrote only the number of tanks and no limerick and as such you were ineligible to win. Also, several people failed to follow the rules of how a limerick is supposed to be written (despite me having provided two links), and you were also ineligible to win.

WINNERS!
