Sister Agnes look-a-like winner!

October 25th, 2009 by | 5 comments


Our Sister Agnes look-a-like contest has ended and we’re happy to announce the winner of a ‘Tales of Monkey Island’ poster signed by Steve Purcell. We had a democratic vote among the staff members of this blog and the winning picture was of Serweet who does a mean Sister Agnes!

The contest was unfortunately not as big a hit as we had hoped and we only had four entries, but thanks to the generosity of Telltale we were able to give full seasons of ‘Tales of Monkey Island‘ to all the runners-up. You can check out all the Sister Agnes look-a-likes in this gallery.

Thanks to all who were brave enough to participate and congratulations on your prizes!

This contest has ended.

Want to win a ‘Tales of Monkey Island’ poster signed by Steve Purcell? Here’s your chance! If you have played chapter 3, Lair of the Leviathan, of ‘Tales of Monkey Island‘ you have come across a photo of the lovely Sister Agnes. The men want her and the women want to be her. Her looks are unique yet we will try to replicate the visual wonder that is Sister Agnes with this contest. We invite you to dress up, put on your best Sister Agnes face, snap a photo of it, and send it to us at

When the contest has ended the staff here at will choose the best photo and the winner will receive a ‘Tales of  Monkey Island‘ poster signed by Steve Purcell. The second and third place will each receive a full season of ‘Tales of Monkey Island‘! If you already bought the full season you can always give it to a friend so they too can experience how awesome Monkey Island is!

All these prizes are kindly donated by Telltale so remember to thank them in your next Oscar speech, when you’re on Oprah, as you call a friend on ‘Who Wants to be A Millionaire?’, in the comments, on their forums, or just send them a kind thought and buy their games 🙂
