WHO WANTS TO CELEBRATE BUCKSCOOPS CONCEPTION WITH PIN THE TAIL ON THE DONKEY

Posted By: nod, posted 2007/08/23 17:43
So here we are at 23rd August 2007, a year to the day that Admin registered as the very first user of Buckscoop.
Not really a birthday, that will be in October when the first deals appeared more like our conception.

I decided that we needed to celebrate and play Pin the tail on the Donkey!!!


How on earth did she come up with that idea I hear you say??
Via a very logical process . Admin was the first ever Buckscoop member Admins avatar is a donkey . And what game do you think about when you think of donkeys?
Pin the tail on the Donkey of course!

We start with a picture of a Dottie the donkey divided into squares. Each square has co-ordinates e.g A1, D5 etc

To enter the game all you need to do is post one deal in the Hot Deals section of the forum.
Each deal posted earns you one tail.
Each tail gives you one chance to select co-ordinates on the donkey picture.
Come 9pm AEST Monday 27th August 2007 we will start the Pin the tail on the Donkey draw.
But to keep you all interested, we will have 4 prizes to give away.
Yes Dottie the Buckscoop Donkey has 4 tails!
The first four members to have the co-ordinates for the tails, as chosen by Admin wins!

For example. You post up a deal in the forum You then receive one tail via email. When you receive the tail you can then chose your co-ordinates Eg F5
If Admin calls F5 on Monday at 9pm, you are one of the winners!



Here are a few simple rules:
1. The deals must be posted between 10am Thursday 23rd August to 7 pm Monday 27th August (AEST).
2. You will only receive a maximum of 3 tails (hence you can select a maximum of 3 co-ordinates)
3. Only one member can chose each co-ordinate once
4. All those members that played our last game of Buckscoop Bingo game 2 will receive one tail free you need to PM Nod your email address to get this.
5. You can start posting deals from 10am Today, Thursday 23rd August AEST
6. You will be able to chose co-ordinates on the Dottie the Donkey from 10am Sunday 25th August AEST.
7. All deals posted must be available to all Buckscoop members and be approved by Admin or Myself
8. Our decision on the winners is final!

  • nod2007/08/26 09:16:50
    Ok so here is how we play:

    [COLOR="Black"]All those members that have contacted me and hence received their 'tails', you can now chose your co-ordinates
    So if you received one tail via email you can chose one co-ordinate; two tails two co-ordinates...
    To chose the co-ordinate simply pop a post below stating the ones you want eg A4.
    [B]
    [/B][/COLOR]


    Come 9pm AEST Monday we will start to call the co-ordinates. If your number (eg D6) is called then you need to PM me to claim your prize. We will call all co-ordinates until all 4 prizes have been won!

    Please post any questions you have below
    Please post your co-ordinate selections in red to make them easy to read :)
  • ScarletRubies2007/08/26 09:39:32
    OK, I'll call [COLOR="Red"]B4[/COLOR] and [COLOR="Red"]D2[/COLOR].

    When you do the draw on Monday, can I assume we don't need to be online? (Who am I kidding... the computer is always on...).

    I've got to admit - I am not 100% sure how you're doing this, nod - are you blinding folding yourself (or an unsuspecting kid), twirling and setting loose with a thumb tack etc? :D
  • nod2007/08/26 09:44:05
