    All the other rules for the hunt will be posted on Thursday ... the only one you need to know for now is that you MUST make 5 comments in the forum to qualify to play the game [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"] And here we are with the rules for the comp: 1. The winners will be those Buckscoopers that have PM'd ]Lilpretzel with ALL of the correct answers 2. Admins word is final .... And Lilpretzel's 3. Have fun :) Here is how to play: each clue below should lead you to a merchant page (ie one of the stores listed on Buckscoop that offer you Bucky cashback on your purchases.) Simply answer the clue, go to the merchant page, find the 'important' word. Once you have ALL the important words, form a sentence and PM ]Lilpretzel with the answer A n example: Clue = The merchant with offers direct to your door. (grab word number 5 in the merchants description) Answer = ]Deals Direct. Word = WITH [/SIZE][/FONT] :flowers:

    so with my post count being above 5, do I already qualify? Or does it have to be from a certain time? If you are only counting the new posts, does this post qaulify? And me asking these questions, does that mean I'm registered? Or do I need to post agian to say that I'm regsistered... if this is the case, does this post count? haha I'm just tooling around :whistling:

    Some things to remember: 1. when counting the words in the merchant description DO NOT include any punctuation in the counting (ignore hyphens in the count too) . You need to start your count with the 1st word in 'grey' on the merchant page - DO NOT include the title 2. sentence you need to form does make sense. you only have ONE CHANCE TO PM LILPRETZEL WITH YOUR ANSWER SO PLEASE DO NOT BOMBARD HER WITH PM'S. Only PM once you have the sentence and are happy that it makes sense.
