"Watch 12 contestants compete in a race against the clock to collect 25 specified blocks/items as quickly as possible!" 20.png William278, announcing the event

Marbou's Shopping List was a player-organised competitive event held on the Survival 3 world of the Dogcraft Server designed and planned by 20.png marbou9. The event was an item-gathering event in which players competed to be the first to complete a shopping list of 25 blocks by gathering them from a special 400x400 area of the world and correctly displaying them on a grid.

The Event

The event was held on Sunday, November 17th at 1PM UTC and was hosted by events team member 20.png William278 who also live streamed the event to the CDNN YouTube channel. 20.png marbou9 had previously planned the event on the Survival 2 world through suggesting it on the forums, however lack of player interest and time prevented it from coming into fruition. With the end of Marbou's tenure as HeadMod approaching, it was decided to make a push to go ahead with the event and so a suitable 400x400 area of terrain was prepared as well as a central area for item collection. The event was announced and sign ups were opened on the 13th of November, four days before the actual competition.
