Over at ForbiddenCove They are holding a Lego pirate ship building contest! At least I assume that's what they want, as the rules never really specify just what your supposed to build! Anyway, the contest runs from January 1, 2010 through March 15'th, 2010. According to their contest rules, all submissions must be built specifically for there Jolly Roger contest, and can't be already in progress builds. The booty consists of various pirate Lego sets and various other assorted trinkets! Head on over and have a look at the official rules HERE!

Anyway, I posted this on the forum a while back,but I thought I would go ahead and post it on the front page for thosethat missed it. I had posted a lot about this game on the forum earlierthis year, I'm a big fan of the Anno series of games and I was reallylooking forward to this one, but when I found out about the draconiancopy protection included with the original release of this game Ipretty much gave up on it. Back at the end of October, Ubisoft releasedan official patch for this game fixing a few bugs and completelyremoving the TAGES copy protection!
