How Many Pieces?-Contest: Winners Announced!

Hello everyone! Now that I finished Cataclysm, I decided to hold a contest. And, first prize is a 3-month Pro membership!

After a week of demolishing and counting, the grand total is 28,538! Here are the winners:

WINNERS!
1. fishgish509-28765

2. firebombfury-28000

3. sprout_less-29,500

Congrats to the winners, and thanks to everyone for entering the contest! :-)
Special thanks to Hiyadudez for designing the patches for me.

I posted some pictures below of Cataclysm's deconstruction, and the piles and boxes of pieces.


The contest is simple: just post a comment below and guess how many Knex pieces are in Cataclysm (pictured below). The 3 people who guess the number closest to the actual number will win!

READ THE RULES!!!
-Only one guess per person.
-If you guess the same number as someone else, the person who guessed it first will count (so don't guess a number that someone else already guessed).

PRIZES
1st place- 3-month Pro membership, and a patch
2nd place- Patch
3rd place- Patch
All the patches will be different (one saying first place, second place, etc.). I will be providing the patches and Pro membership.

The contest ends in a week on Sunday October 10th.

Good luck! :-D

lol you should have made a time lapse video of dismantling it, then playing it in reverse so it looks like you're building it. Would have been interesting to see :P
Shadowman39 (author)  Lowney3 years ago
I've had that idea for some time now, except in stop motion. I'm going to do it with my next ball machine. :-)

looks like there are other people who like to be exact. :-)
RNB Tornado964 years ago
Yes, I like it to be exact. (and I think this is wrong Enlish, but I don't know how to say it correct :-) )
Tornado96 RNB4 years ago
You spelt it fine. BTW don't forget to post your guess. :-)
RNB Tornado964 years ago

CALVIN AND HOBBES RULE! DROP DEAD SUSY DERKINS!!!!!!!!
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
You're mean, wishing people to drop dead...
She's just an obnoxious little girl in the comics. She's not real. I was really imitating calvin :-)
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
I know, I was just kidding, haha. I've read most of the Calvin and Hobbes comics.
My teacher gave them ALL to me on CD. I read them all the time including now. :-)
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
How can you read them from a CD?
As in the computer puts them on a file, I open the file and read them. :-)
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
Oh, you read them from the computer. I was thinking audio since you said CD.
Yeah. I can send the file to you If you want.
I can give it to you on saturday.
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
I personally like the books better, but if I want the files I'll tell you on Skype.
Sure!
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
Too bad you won't be on till Friday, I created that group I was talking about.
yeah. Time differences are pretty annoying. I'd have to go to school when you call. Speaking of school I chose Ice skating for sport electives. It was my first time ice skating and I didn't fall over. :-D Go me!
RNB Tornado964 years ago
I'm also doing Ice skating... only for Ice Hockey! one of the few sports you nearly can't do in the Netherlands. :-( (nearly forgot the nose)
Tornado96 RNB4 years ago
I'm not good enough for hockey yet. I can barely control my speed. Can you do soccer in the netherlands? :-) (I remembered the nose)
Shadowman39 (author)  Tornado964 years ago
I don't even know how to skate.
lol. It's not as hard as some people say. You should try it sometime.
RNB Tornado964 years ago
Actually, just skating is easy. It get's a lot harder if people try to tackle you (or smash you against the boarding) and that kind of things.
Tornado96 RNB3 years ago
Ow. A friend of mine is a professional and he was going at top speed and then skidded to a stop. Shards of ice flew all over the PE teacher. :-D
RNB Tornado963 years ago
That's fun to do :-). I'm also doing that kind of tricks.
Tornado96 RNB3 years ago
I can't do that yet. I want to though.
RNB Tornado964 years ago
Yes, I can do soccer here. (there are at least 4 clubs at every city!) But I don't like soccer.
Tornado96 RNB4 years ago
WHAT!?? Soccer is the best sport in the world! What's wrong with you.
RNB Tornado964 years ago
Nothing :-). I'm fine.
Tornado96 RNB3 years ago

Maybe you should get a ticket to Australia so I can see what the problem is. ;-P

I wouldn't have took it apart so early! It's so cool, so good, it's the best!!!
Shadowman39 (author)  Sorunome4 years ago
It was up for over a year, even though it wasn't completed for most of that time. I needed more room.
... :( It's just awsome!
Shadowman39 (author)  Sorunome4 years ago
Thanks!
NP :)
Tornado964 years ago
The annoying thing about Australia is that I have to wait till Monday to find out the results because of time difference. :-(
RNB Tornado964 years ago
Same problem here. I had to wait till 1.00 AM :(
Tornado96 RNB4 years ago
I had to wait until 11:30 or something like that so I was at school. :-(
