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]

    And to ensure there is little confusion with the sentence .... the answer to number 4 comes last in the sentence .... And the first word in the sentence has 3 (three) letters oh and it is not a question :)

  • lilpretzel

  • MamaK
    do we only get one go at it?
  • queenshrew
    Yeah, I believe so :D
  • lilpretzel
    That's correct!
    nod;57114
    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.
  • craftykiwi
    Still have no idea.
  • MamaK
    well good luck to those still in the race :D I'm off to knit ;)
  • lilpretzel

  • queenshrew
    doh must you post that gibberish i sent you up there haha I win at the most nonsensical sentence!!! :p My 2nd post was almost right though :D
  • lilpretzel
    Sorry queenshrew :o yes your 2nd one was almost alright, just a tad excited :w00t: REPS all around, well everybody I could give them to :D
  • MamaK
    Well done Photographyisart :D the counting of the com and au as words was what had me stumped
  • craftykiwi
    Yes well done Photo - I think I was stumped all round but especially the 'one' or 'first' - kept ignoring that because it was a number.
  • admin EDITOR
    I say congratulations to all of you - I reckon it was pretty tough myself.
  • geo78
    same here :) i thought lottos.com.au should be one word since "com" and "au" are not actually words, right? and besides, Micro$oft Word counts it as one word, not 3 :) congrats to the winner, PIA
    MamaK;57218
    Well done Photographyisart :D the counting of the com and au as words was what had me stumped
  • nod
    I did tell you all the ignore punctuation :) it was one of the rules ... so I am afraid that we really had only one winner this time around .. But to make it all up to you we will play another silly game on Tuesday :w00t: ... game of chance .. no thought required :D
  • nod
    :w00t: ok peoples .. we are normally exceedingly generous around here with prizes but this time around I figure that there really is only one winner :D Sorry guys ... but as I mentioned in the other post we will jackpot all the $$ and prob throw in a few more $$ for a silly random game on Tuesday Details to be announced :)

What do you think?
