In 7 days(December 16th) we begin a game that will span many days and will be a battle of attrition among all of you. The goal is to outlast the competition and be the last man standing.

 

Rules:

  • I will pick the name of an ordinary household item. When I post the name of the item, you must locate it by any means necessary and take a picture of it. The only requirement is that the item is real and not something you found online. Post the picture in this thread.
  • Don't spoiler tag your submission, re-size if needed. It's faster for recounts. No micropics either. If I can't tell what it is you aren't getting credit.
  • You must do this within 24 hours of the timestamp that I post. If all participants advance before the 24 hours is up, I will post a new item immediately. Submissions past the deadline do not count, even if I have not posted a new challenge.
  • For every item, you must either be in the picture with your face present holding it up OR be holding a sign pic with your username on it. If you choose to do a sign pic, you must write your username clearly on a piece of paper(or use a self pic) and turn it into a doge meme. This pic must be the same pic used in every picture. If I doubt your pic then you will be disqualified.
  • I reserve the right to audit suspicious pics by requiring you to submit additional information about it.
  • This contest is open to all users whether you've won anything in the past or not.
  • I reserve the right to change the rules at any time and make them retroactive if I think that it makes the contest more fair.
  • Each successful challenge is worth 1 point. This is not an easter egg.
  • Challenge #1 will be open indefinitely through this contest, but others will not. Once a challenge is closed you will not be able to score points.
  • You can enter this contest by doing challenge #1. No need to PM me.
  • You will not be eliminated if you fail a challenge, you just won't score points for it.
  • The player with the most points at the end of the month wins.
  • In the event of any ties, the player who completed the most challenges consecutively without failing takes gets the advantage.

Prizes:

 

Gold

Custom Plushie

$10 Neocodex Credit

Starter Main account with street cred + Stocking stuffer nc

 

Silver

Sword of Fire

$5 Neocodex Credit

ABing Shell Pack (Each pack contains 3 4-35 month shell + 1 Attic Shell)

Wood

[Mystery Box] - Prize via the Advent prize roll method except I will double the np and bonus prize! (est. value 200k-20M) Winning in either contests will not affect the other.

 

As usual, the colors are just for show and mean nothing! Winners get first pick priority of any item on the list in order of final rank! But this year there is a twist! You can take the guaranteed prize or gamble by choosing the advent method! This means you can win up to 2x Sword of Fires!

 

fyi all contests I run under the Advent 2013 umbrella share the same prize pool so the master list in the advent calendar thread will list all items for accounting purposes but may not be given there. If I choose to give it out elsewhere it will only be given out once like the plushie.

Awesome!

 

We should have separate entries / discussion thread so that it's easy to differentiate between what's an entry post and what isn't...
