CONTEST: Show Us Your Balls in Action

  • May 27, 2011

It’s time for another Facebook photo contest. Easy to play. Easy to win. And all it takes is a single picture of your Buckyballs in action!

Here’s how it works:

Step 1 – Take a picture of your balls in action – IE, make a new shape, give them something fun to do. Pose them at work (just don’t get caught!) or at your weekend BBQ, and take a picture. Whatever you do is fine by us.

Step 2 – Post it to the wall of our Facebook page ( by 11:59pm EST Monday, May 30th (we’re giving you an extra day!) and you’ll automatically be entered to WIN A FREE SET!

Step 3 Just come back to our blog or Facebook page page Tuesday to see if you’ve won.


NOTE: Though we’re announcing all of the winners Tuesday, we’re picking three winners over the course of the holiday weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday). For your best chances to win, you’re going to want to enter each day. Just be sure to not post the same picture more than once in total.

Now for the fine print:

- Pictures must can not have previously been posted to our Facebook page to qualify.
- Each picture is considered a new entry. Feel free to post as many pictures as you like. Please though, no repeated pictures.
– 3 people will win free sets!
– Someone from Team Buckyballs will pick who gets what using any criteria they deem fit (their identity will remain strictly anonymous for their protection). How fun is that?

UPDATE: “Your Balls In Action” Contest Winners

  • March 21, 2011

Nothing says “Welcome, Spring!” like the gleam of balls in the sunshine.  For our latest contest, Team Bucky wanted to see “Photos of Your Balls in Action!”  The results? Nothing short of amazing.


As always, with so much talent on the field, picking winners is a chore… so we gave it to the new girl: Amy, the latest and greatest edition to Team Buckyballs’ customer service crew.  She was a little intimidated by the enormity of the task, but she rallied.


Here now, we present the winners of the “Photos of Your Balls in Action!” contest.

Winner #1:Mike Betts Wins a Free Set of Buckyballs !

Amy explains her choice: “Mike’s ‘Lephrechaun Hat and Clover’ provides index fingers everywhere what they’ve been missing. Really, fingers just don’t dress up like they used to, and I’m happy to see he’s bringing back the ‘dapper digit’ aesthetic. “  Er, OK.

Winner #2 : James Baeb wins a set of Buckyballs!

Buckyballs contest winnerAmy explains: “Believe it or not, I found my first 4 leaf clover ever this weekend… My good luck became Jame’s good luck as I was drawn to this entry. I guess there’s a theme to the two I picked to win, but it wasn’t intentional.”

And a shout out to our Twitter winners…
We asked you to finish the sentence, “#stpatricksday and Buckyball shenanigans go hand in hand like…”


We loved this Tweet from @jamesmoore80, who rocked St. Patty’s Day AND a Mork-from-Ork reference: #stpatricksday and Buckyball shenanigans go hand in hand like corned beef and cabbage or Mork and Mindy.

And we couldn’t help but throw @robrt_ml a bone for retweeting, because, well Amy picked him: #stpatricksday and Buckyball shenanigans go hand in hand like… Green and Beer.

Congrats to our winners, and THANKS SO MUCH to all who played.  If you’re one of the winners, drop us a line at with your shipping details and we’ll rush your prize out the door.  Everyone else, keep your eyes peeled, more contest fun is on the way!
