Announcing the winners of our Festive Decorating competition!

January 8, 2010

Yes please Tami, we’ll take 10! In fact make that 20!

And if you don’t know what we’re talking about, boy you’re in for a treat!

So last year we asked you to take the inspiration of Playfish to make some festive decorations. We don’t like to restrict you too much — we love seeing what you achieve when you take some simple guidelines and run with them — so we kept it simple: show us some festive decorations with a Playfish twist. We gave a few examples, like greetings cards based on Playfish games, or re-creating your family holiday decorations in a Playfish games, but the sky was really the limit.

We could carry on for several paragraphs about how much you blew us away once again with your creative skills but in truth, we think you guys know how good you are by now. And my word are you good. No, let’s just put our prizes where our mouth is and get onto the good stuff: the winning entries! Everyone listed below wins a Playfish 2010 calendar, a goody bag of Playfish and EA merchandising, plus:

The 20th to 11th runners up below each won 50 PFC. Well done everyone!

11 Bevypoo – If this cake tastes half as good as it looks… boy, what a cake!

12 x-nick-x-86 – We loved this card because it managed to include all our games in a very original style, well done! The Word Challenge font was a plus!

13 Kee Ping – Definitely the best Festive farm decoration received, we know it takes a while to re-arrange your farm in Country Story, great job!

14 BreakbeatTiki – We received lots of gingerbread restaurants but this revised version of Jingle Bells was spot on!

And now, drum roll… in 3rd place winning 250 Playfish Cash, here’s droby5’s festive hotel! That luxurious selection of suites would be the envy of any 5 star hotel, although we’re dubious about the health and safety aspects of the toilets being located in the bedrooms!

In 3rd place…

Next up is chemicalsmile’s Pet Society Christmas. chemicalsmile put an astonishing amount of work into replicating her festive Pet Society home in her actual home. The attention to detail is incredible, right down to the tiny snowman on the piano- wait a minute, where’s the tiny snowman on the piano in Pet Society? Only kidding chemicalsmile, enjoy your 500 Playfish Cash!

In 2nd place…

Finally, as you may have guessed from the first sentence, were absolutely bowled over by the sheer awesome put into Tami’s Robot Candy Dispenser. I mean this thing is absolutely amazing. Just check out the step by step guide to making it… Tami, you’re a genius! Your Apple iPod Touch is on its way!

The Holiday Season has Started in Pet Society!

December 2, 2008

Happy Holidays From Pet Society!

With the Holiday Season well under way, we thought we’d fill you in on how we’re celebrating the festivities Pet Society style.

‘Tis the season to play Pet Society it seems, with over five million players already on Facebook and well over a million people playing every day.  To celebrate, we kicked off the season by stacking the shops high with all the turkey and pumpkin pie your pets could eat. And boy can they eat! Your pets managed to chomp their way through five million pumpkin pies during Thanksgiving alone!

Mmm, pumpkin pie!

But let’s hope they’ve saved some appetite for December because there’s going to be all kinds of seasonal treats in store. We thought it was high time we started decorating our homes with festive cheer, so we’ve started you off with a range of trees on sale which can be decorated with a seemingly endless number of baubles, candles, stars and tinsel. Maybe now’s the time to get that fireplace you’ve been sizing up for your living room to give it that homely feeling that makes the Holiday Season feel so special!

Be sure to check back soon for all kinds of festive clothes, decorations, furniture and food and even a special little something from the Mayor of Pet Society on the 25th December. We’ve also got one or two surprises lined up before the year’s up and all kinds of exciting new features which we’ll be unveiling in the new year, so stay tuned.
