    You've probably seen our 2nd Experience 3DS (sort of) post where you can win Mario Kart 3DS. Please don't give out clues or tell anyone the answer but if you'd like to talk around the subject, please do it in here.

    Ooh, this looks cool! I enjoy these stereograms, even though I'm not particularly good at seeing them. Am I allowed to take part in the contest, even though I'm part of the site's staff?

    You can take part, but sorry, no prizes for staff. Can you see what's in the 3D image?

    Having a lot of trouble with it, actually. While looking for tips on seeing stereograms, I found one that will reveal it for you, but I still couldn't make out any details even after fiddling with the controls for a few minutes. I just saw a silhouette that could be pretty much anyone.

    That sounds like cheating! Watch it, I might disqualify you.

    Yeah, I already can see it too. But I don't really know what actually appears in the picture.

    I sent my answer! I hope I win. By the way, would you be able to send it to a U.S. citizen?

    Qais, if you look this is nintendo3ds.org.uk so yeah that wont be a problem.
    i found this 3d thing impossible, i tried lots of ways including using vuvuzelas (yes, it sounds wierd but it's true) to direct my eyes. Really hard.

    Firsly it was hard to me also to spot the image. But I have some old childish magazines where in every of them were posted 3D images like this one. I tried on them few times and then it was quite easy to spot the hidden image.

    It really does sound weird. I'm trying to picture it now.

    Yeah we can send prizes out to the US, Lithuania, Pallet Town, the Mushroom Kingdom and just about anywhere else :)

    That's good, because a lot of contest is just for US residents :( that's cruel, because shipping nowadays isn't very complicated or expensive thing :(

    Basicly I was randomly looking through a vuvuzela and I found your eye always looks down and through to the end. So you can actually choose where to put your eyes by directing them with the vuvuzela. It didn't work though. xD

    I just realised if the 3ds is region locked then will that matter or will you just buy the appropriate region?

    One question: On the email with the answer, should I include my address, or will you ask me for that if I win?

    Thanks.

    They didn't wrote anything about adress requirement so I think you don't need to include your adress in your guess letter.

    No need for an address. I'll just email the winner back and ask them for it. I don't get it when competition organisers ask everyone who enters for an address. Why make 100s of people gave you their address instead just asking the winner for theirs?

    I think they do that to ensure that all the entrants trust the company's intentions with the contest. I mean, you wouldn't want to be giving away expensive stuff to people that don't trust you, right? Also, sometimes, they like to give your address out to advertisers, though they always mention this when they do.

    Ugh...I still can't see the character in the pic. I feel so left out! I mean, I'm part of the staff here. I, of all people, should be able to see it!

    I had to manually move my eyes with my fingers and it hurt A LOT. But I saw it. I think. To kallumstarties, it's painful but try using your fingers to move your eyes away from each other. I have very bloodshot eyes.

    :D You need to use your fingers to cross the eyes? :D Besides, I didn't even move my eyes. There is an easier way to view an image :p

    That was a good trick with a sackboy in the image's URL. While I couldn't see picture clearly I thought that you might forgot to change its URL :D Later I updated my guess with Luigi :)
