Kings of Spun the 16th & Spunland Spun'mas news 

Hail Spunlings! And so to the final Coronations of 2013. Yes, Super Spun congratulations to Krybillao (EU) and Gadereth (NA), not only the 16th Kings of Spun and the only Spun'mas Kings but also the final Spun Majesties of 2013!! Uncle Spun was perhaps a little too full of festive cheer as he whizzed his way around our competing kings in the festive frenzy that was Spunland last night. One is particularly happy to report that the 16th Coronation was busier than any seen so far.
In Europe the Spun Crown was taken by Krybillao – notable as he staked his Claim on it at CandyDragon’s coronation the week before! There was, and not for the first time sadly, some unspun acrimony over the coronation – Uncle Spun must offer his apologies again for being so ignorant as to only speak English & High Spunerese which can inhibit communication in an area as big as the EU. If you suspect that there was some foul play at one of these most majestic of occasions you can always email Uncle Spun the details to:
The North American coronation was certainly lively – and once again Uncle Spun was thrilled to see Majesties past and present. Spun Congratulations to Gadereth who quite frankly came from nowhere to win the Spun Crown! Indeed the occasion was an anxious one for Uncle Spun – it is always with dread that he faces the prospect of the hour chiming when the Spun Crown has reset due to the beginning of the Spun Harvest, to see spunling competitors race to claim their regal reward and see it flit from spun head to head before it settles on one who can hold it for longer than a few spun seconds. Such was the North American coronation! Callooh! Callay! Such Spun excitement was almost too much for Uncle Spun. Then to top it off our most gracious majesties and spunling cohorts posed for the best Spun Picture that Uncle Spun has managed to capture so far. Over these 16 momentous occasions Uncle Spun has learned that it is not the photographer who makes the picture, it is the subjects, so to you dear friends he sends Spunderous Thanks from the bottom of his spinning little spun heart!
Talking of photos – we will be running a Spun’mas Card Competition from tomorrow – the Coronation competitions may be finished for 2013, but this final competition will cap the Spun Year and offer those that compete the chance to win a Spunland Cottage and other Spunland goodies – details will be posted shortly...
Big Spun thanks again to all of our Spun Majesties and indeed contestants, Spunland would be quite literally empty without you! From the new year the coronations will take a different form.
Have a Spun Day!

Kings of Spun the 15th and Spun'mas Update...

Spun Salutations to you! Today sees the start of all thing's festively Spun with the release of the Spun'mas Commerce items, yes now you too can perambulate the vivid vistas of Home as a lively twinkling Spun'mas Tree, or ride around on Father Spun's favorite festive Steed – the joyously jingling Spundeer LMO. If celebrating the season at Home is more to your liking then the Spun'mas Tree Active Furniture item will bring light and gifts to your apartment, but words will fail to convey what this short clip surely can. This is but the start, from next Wednesday (11th) Father Spun will be coming to Spunland...

And so to the Coronations. Spun Congratulations to our 15th Kings of Spun! Uncle Spun was besides himself with joy to see our old friend CandyDragon claim the crown in Europe. She has been our regal majesty before, indeed before the advent of the Spun Crown LMO – which finally is rightfully her's! All Hail! Apologies again to amadeo83, who not for the first time was smitten viciously by unspun bugs, alas! And to Krybillao; we hope to see you compete for the Spun Crown next week.

Across the Great Atlantic things were a little more dramatic. Our previous Spun Majesty Acker55 watched graciously from the side as his compatriots competed for the Spun Crown. CarWashCrew was clearly leading when, at 3 minutes to the appointed hour Acker55, whilst trying to plant a Spun Seed accidentally took the crown! Alack! Confusion reigned, and acrimony would have won the day were it not for Acker55's dash to the Bank of Spun to deposit his hard won gains – and so CarWashCrew became our 15th NA King Of Spun! Congratulations Majesty! And Spun respect and thanks to Acker55! As you may see from the photo below Acker55 posed with our new Spun Majesty both in their Spun Crown's – Uncle Spun is pleased to say this seems to be becoming something of a tradition – the new Majesty posing with the old.

So next week's coronation - whoever holds the Spun Crown at 8pm GMT in the EU and 4pm PST/7pm EST in NA on Tuesday the 10th of December will be our 16th Kings of Spun!

Hope to see you then!
