We're giving away an amiibo every week of summer! Welcome to Week 2: Villager! Update: Congratulations to the winners!

Nintendo keeps releasing amiibo, but you don't have to break open your wallet to get your hands on them. Why not win a free amiibo figure from Nintendo World Report? We'll be giving them away all summer long!

Every week we'll run a different contest for a different Amiibo prize. It might be a caption contest. You might need to answer trivia. Or you might need to tune into a podcast for the secret keyword for that week's random drawing! Make sure you check back each week to enter into that week's particular contest, and to get a sneak preview at the Amiibo prizes to come! (Winners of previous weeks of the NWR's Summer of Amiibo event are not eligible for subsequent prizes.)


This week's prize: Villager! This week's contest: a CAPTION CONTEST!

Come up with a witty caption for one of the images below (if you enter multiple captions, only the first one will be considered for judging) and NWR staff will do a blind vote on the wittiest! PLUS there'll be a bonus prize on top of that for a contestant chosen at random!

Instructions:

  1. Log in or Register for our forums
  2. Click the "Add to the discussion!" link at the bottom of this article to start a post
  3. Write down the image you're captioning (for example "Image 1")
  4. Write down the caption for that image (for example, "Captain's Log: Always remember to put the toilet seat down.")
  5. Hit Post!

With no further ado, here are your image choices! Get captioning!

"They attacked me, meaning to make a feast of me - one even dragged me to the bottom - but my mail-shirt protected me and my sword hacked at them hard.

Nine monsters I killed that night. Their bodies lay on the shore when morning came. They would no longer attack ships as they crossed the swan's riding-place."

Man, I switched it up to a Beowulf quote, but I guess it wasn't good enough for the main prize.

I accept everyone's lack of literacy along with my consolation prize.

Fatty The HuttJuly 08, 2016

Aw darn I was really hoping for this one. I've been on the lookout for a Villager since they came out. You just can't find them.
But, if I'm being honest, I would have picked Broodwars' too so it's all good.

I totally got the Beowulf reference!

But in the end, this is how the votes tallied.
