How To Win

There are several ways to win, and the more you participate, the greater your chances!  This is just a brief summary of things to do.  Read the detailed instructions for best results!

I.    The first thing you have to do is register on mtbs3D.com and make sure your information is complete and accurate (phone, address, email).  Without this information, we can’t mail your prizes, and we need to ensure there are no duplicate submissions.  This information will not be shared with or sold to third parties.

II.    Post in this forum thread – and only post ONCE!  This counts as your first contest entry, and qualifies you for a single draw.

To get an edge for winning prizes, you can score big draw bonuses by doing the following:


Help Grow the Community

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and let us know that you did.  We’ll add three points to your draw.


Make Accurate Submissions to GameGrade3D

GameGrade 3D is MTBS’ community driven library of stereoscopic 3D game compatibility with DDD, Nvidia, and native stereoscopic 3D solutions (e.g. AMD’s HD3D) on PC.  Each new submission will give you one extra draw in MTBS’ Sweepstakes.  Pre-existing submissions don’t qualify.

All submissions require screenshot attachments and personal comments, so be sure to read the GG3D manual.  The exceptions are entries for AMD HD3D games.  Inaccurate submissions due to not following the GG3D process will be discounted from your qualified submission list.  If you have doubts or have questions about making GG3D entries, post in the GameGrade3D forums for help.  Once you know what you are doing, it only takes a few moments to make a submission.



Review Your Games

Is there a 2D or 3D game you like or dislike?  Tell us about it!  Write a 500 to 1,000 word essay describing the game, and why you think it should be released in 3D.  Be sure to also describe the 3D experience you’d like to see in the game.  You don’t need to own 3D equipment to do this – just your imagination.

While all articles need to be written in English, it's not Shakespeare!  What matters most is your submissions are authentic.  So don't worry if English isn't your first language!

MTBS Logo
Not great with a pen?  No problem!  Grab hold of that webcam and upload to YouTube.  To qualify, all videos must have the MTBS logo in one of four corners.

Each text review is worth five submission points, and you get a bonus three points when it’s done in video form.  The only requirements we have are no profanity, no nudity, and keep it family friendly!

If you are reviewing a stereoscopic 3D game on PC, the GameGrade3D score is needed to qualify – though you are welcome to share your own subjective opinions on top of this.  In addition to the review bonus, each GameGrade3D submission is one point on condition that you are the one who made the submission.



Review Your Hardware

Did you buy a new 3D display recently?  Get your hands on some cool gaming hardware that you want the world to know about?  Now’s your chance!

400+ word text reviews are worth five submission points, and YouTube video reviews with the MTBS logo are worth eight.  If you are not reviewing a 3D display, there has to be a linkage to why this equipment would be interesting to a stereoscopic 3D gamer.  Samples of this could include joysticks, gaming chairs, sound cards, graphics cards, speakers - anything that would enhance a stereoscopic 3D gamer’s experience.

Again, while all submissions need to be in English, this isn't a spelling bee, and perfect grammer and spelling isn't a requirement.  It's your opinions that matter most!


Review 3D Movies in Theaters & Blu-Ray

Have you seen a really good 3D movie recently?  Maybe you caught a few that weren't so good?  Write up a 500 to 1,000 word movie review, and earn four submission points - do it in video form, and get five!


Make MTBS a Better Place

We are five years old, and MTBS is made possible by the contributions of its members – that means YOU!

MTBS and MTBS’ GameGrade3D needs cool forum signatures and avatars.  If you have the artistic skill, you’ll get 10 bonus draws for each submission provided that each work is completely unique from the last.  Attach your work to a single post in this forum.  Don't add new posts - just edit the same post with changes and updates.



Ultimate 3D Advocate Award

We have a secret bonus prize for the ultimate 3D advocate worth over $200!  Who is the ultimate 3D advocate, you ask?  We are hoping it’s you!  Judged by MTBS’ moderators and fellow members, this individual will demonstrate the following qualities:
  1. Regular poster on MTBS’ forums.  Not that fluffy filler stuff – real posts as a member of the MTBS community.
  2. Regular and accurate submissions and updates to GameGrade3D.  DDD, Nvidia, HD3D – all submissions are welcome.  Using GG3D will help fellow gamers by telling them everything they need to know to get the best 3D results.
  3. Advocate!  Make MTBS a fun place to be and help grow the community.
  4. Pizzazz!  We can’t define it, but we’ll know it when we see it!
