    So the pirates are out again on the hunt for some [COLOR="Purple"]Buckscoop Birthday loot[/COLOR]

    [B][COLOR="Blue"]TREASURE HUNT COMMENCES [COLOR="Red"]9PM AEST [/COLOR] TUESDAY 23RD OCTOBER[/COLOR][/B]

    [B]HERE IS HOW TO PLAY
    [/B]
    1. At 9pm AEST, I will post a clue in [COLOR="Red"]Treasure Hunt thread[/COLOR] in the Hot deals forum
    2. Solve the clue. This will be a one word answer
    3. Use the advanced search facility in the ‘Hot deals’ section of the forum (upper right in the forum toolbar), to find all deals related to that word. Keep the search for 'Show all threads'
    4. In the first comment for one of those deals you will find the next clue and a pirate shouting a LETTER. You must record the LETTER you find.

    Here is the pirate and an example of a letter:

    http://library.thinkquest.org/J0111742/pirate_cartoon.gif [SIZE=5][B]P[/B][/SIZE]

    5. Answer all the clues and make a sentence with the words. This does need to make sense :rolleyes:
    6. The first person to PM me, Nod with the correct WORD in the title of their PM wins a [B]$30 Deals Direct Gift Voucher[/B]!




    All the clues can be found in the “Hot Deals” forum by simply searching and a bit of hunting. It is recommended that you go to the advanced search function, and select “Hot Deals” in the bottom left search box, “Search in forum”. This will narrow down your hunt considerably. Type the cryptic clue answer in the keyword box (will never be more than a single word), click search and start looking for those treasure chests! All of the clues will appear in deals that have been posted in the last 6 months.
    ____________________

    [COLOR="Blue"]Here's an example, which you can test out right now if you like.
    [/COLOR]
    Clue:
    Enjoys wearing blue and red lycra and surfing the web
    Answer:
    Spiderman
    Your search
    11 posts are found under the search
    And here is where you find the next clue

    In our previous game you found a word but in this game all you need to collect is LETTERS .... But then you need to spell the word

    Rules:
    · Admin’s decisions are final in all cases.
    · The competition is open to any Buckscoop member (excluding moderators!) – if you are not yet a member, simply register here. Registration is of course free!
    · Creating multiple accounts for personal gain will disqualify members from the comp! Play fair.
    · The first member to PM Nod the correct answers, and who have abided by these rules, will win 1 x $30 Deals Direct voucher.
    · All clues can be found in the “Hot Deals” forum.
    · The clue locations or answers should not be discussed in this thread, or anywhere else in the Buckscoop site – if you do so, your message will simply be removed.
    · If you bump an old thread simply to show others the answer, you will be disqualified from the competition.
    · You will [B][B]only get 1 chance to PM your entry[/B][/B] to Nod, so make sure you are completely happy with your answer before you do so. If you submit more than one, you will be disqualified.

    The [COLOR="Red"]Treasure Hunt [/COLOR]might sound a little complicated, but just stick to the guidelines above, and you’ll more than likely find the correct answer.
    All questions to be posted in the thread in 'Hot Deals'
