    MUD ....when I was reading I was sure it was going to be something other than mud ;)
  • Wally
    Does one have to have previously traversed Mount Buckscoop to enter this verdant jungle??
  • Gallifrey
    hope not Wally as I didn't climb the mountain, I might be able to make it thru the jungle tho LOL

    So there you go Wally & Gallifrey you better grab the mossie repellent and your hiking boots and watch out for the 3 wise monkeys. http://img159.imageshack.us/img159/812/3wisemonkies2786jc1.gif :)

    http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/JungleDreams.jpg [SIZE=6]Here is Leg Two of the ‘Best Bargain Race’ Finding the Buckscoop Family Heirloom[/SIZE] [SIZE=4]The game is simple. Your task is to locate the Buckscoop Heirloom which is located behind one of the large yellow squares you can see in the piccie above. But how do you get there??[/SIZE] [SIZE=5] Here are the basics: 1. To qualify to play you first need to post a minimum of one deal a day. (You have a maximum of 3 deal and 1 freebie posts up your sleeve ie a max of 4 posts can be posted a day for the comp). 2. Each deal = 1 space on the board. 3. To begin the game, you must post the deal(s) and then chose your path on the board. 4. Each night the position of the avid explorers will be updated on the board.[/SIZE] Here are a few rules that will help us all along: 1. 'X' is having a sale is not a post that will be included in the Race tally 2. Comp posts are not included 5. All dupe posts will be removed and will not go towards your tally. 5. Each deal that you chose to post for the race must include the tag 'Jungle’ and your username. For example ‘junglenod' 6. All members that take part in the race MUST NOT cold vote another members deal unless they provide a valid commentary. Any member found cold voting without giving a reason will lose 25 points from their tally. 7. Buckscoop Admin word is final 8. The winner is the member that gets closest to the Buckscoop heirloom. 9. Prize to be announced tomorrow… And some extras ….. Tuesday and Thursday night will bring added chances to pick up points and prizes… or maybe not :w00t: [SIZE=6]For extra information see ]here[/SIZE]
  • admin EDITOR
    Dunno about you - but I reckon the one sitting in front of the leopard in the tree is dodgy....
  • Keeys
    Im sure the monkey has it ;)
  • admin EDITOR
    that'll be your chosen path the keeys. Be a laugh to see who chooses what path to take.
  • Keeys
    Is a great idea is more luck in choosing the right path. Can't wait to see how it unfolds :)
  • craftykiwi
    Have posted my first deal so I'm opting for the second top path that ends at the leopard/jaguar. Hope it isn't dodgy as admin reckons!
  • photographyisart
    i'm choosing the monkey's path - posted my first lot of deals too
  • golfwidow
    Ive been having a life and missing all the fun last week :( Im on the case for this week though. Ive started and hoping ive done it right. If this is where we pick paths i pick the one that follows along the ground and up to the bird. I like to stay down on the ground :)
  • ScarletRubies
    If you make it to the yellow square but it's the wrong path do you just stand there in your wrongness, or do you get some sort of leg up on a different path? (Haven't even worked out if there's enough time to follow more than one path!).
  • nod
    Thanks for popping up the post donkey... And just to make it interesting.. there are a few surprises in store during the week.. so keep on your toes cos ;) [SIZE=6]Each path is exactly the same length and you need to nominate the path you wish to take by MIDNIGHT TONIGHT[/SIZE]
  • photographyisart
    do we do that here?
  • Gallifrey
    yes, where do we pick our path?
  • admin EDITOR
    in here will do you lot. We'll pick it up and assign you to your destiny.
  • ScarletRubies
    I haven't posted a deal yet, but in anticipation of doing so, I chose the "right" path that leads to the phoenix looking feathered-friend. I really wanted the toucan, but there's no path leading to him!
  • geo78
    i'm choosing the monkey :)
  • Wally
    hmm .. einy meeny mieny moe .. catch an heirloom by the toe .. if it's tarnished let it go .. einy meeny mieny .. the lounging leopard way I will go :prop:
  • Gallifrey
    I wanted to take the path up the tree to the BIG cat please, but I see it is after midnight and I may be too late to pick??
  • nod
    10pm by my clock Gallifrey so no probs. :D And................ [SIZE=6]Tonight we hit the swamp... bring your wellies .... 9pm EDST :)[/SIZE]
  • nod
    [SIZE=4] The paths we chose and the colour of our little explorers :D: Gallifrey: leopard (purple) Wally: leopard (yellow) Geo78: Monkey (red) Ruby: toucan (blue) Crafty: leopard (white) Photo: monkey (pink) Golfy: toucan (green) Keeys: monkey (brown) Yovi: leopard (light blue)[/SIZE]
  • nod
    The lonely little parrot in the tree has no friends :D
  • nod
    Keeys you need to chose a path?? :(
  • nod
    http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/jungle2.JPG And our little explorers are on their way :D
  • admin EDITOR
    You reckon we should make the little playmen a bit more visible. Be hard I guess, without it being a bit chunky. I see your all right handers. The monkey and the toucan look a little lonely.
  • ScarletRubies
    Nope, I'm a lefty - but I wanted the bird and I didn't realise anyone else picked the phoenix. Still haven't posted a deal, slacker that I am, so I'll go parrot if that's OK, Nod?
  • golfwidow
    Umm dont mean to be a pain in the behind but i picked the path along the ground and ends with the blue and yellow birdy on the left hand side. Is this one broken? :)

    Nope :D Sorry about that I assumed you picked the other bird one - my mistake - i shall fix it tonight when I do the new tally :D

    big question is should we let you change???? :whistling:
  • golfwidow
    Thanks Nod :D
  • yovi
    i would like to join and pick leopard's way :)
  • nod
    hehehhehee There I go breaking all the rules I set again :D Ok Yovi np - I am sure the jungle is big enough for one more :D [SIZE=5]LAST CALL PEOPLE.... Those members that wish to join Leg two of the Best Bargain Race must rego in here by midnight tonight.... and chose a path.... I will stick to this deadline too this time :D[/SIZE]
  • nod
    Ok Ruby.. you can have the parrot's way :D
  • ScarletRubies
    No, no, no.... I only wanted the parrot because I thought Golfy was after my phoenix... I'll stick with the path that leads right to the birdy of gold in the middle - unless you're likely to get peeved with me in which case I'll do whatever I'm jolly well told to, Ma'am. Besides, we'll always have Parrots.
  • golfwidow
    Nope i dont want your birdie :p LMAO again at parrots joke :D :cool:
  • Keeys
    Keeys;41122
    Im sure the monkey has it ;)
    I thought I had chosen, sorry :( I have been out all day no deals posted from me today :( :(
  • nod
    LOL you did too... I am going blind... please forgive me :flowers: I will update you tonight :D
  • Keeys
    no worries ....just make sure the monkey has it and all is forgiven ;) :P I managed to get on posted before midnight the other one I was a minute to slow lol
  • nod
    :D I am sworn to secrecy about the heirloom... :w00t:
  • nod
    [SIZE=5]Here is the latest update to Leg Two :)[/SIZE] http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/jungle31.JPG Now the golden phoenix is lonely :D

    No, no, no.... I only wanted the parrot because I thought Golfy was after my phoenix...

    Can I stick with the golden goose? I mean Phoenix? :) I think we're really muddled with the birds!
  • nod
    LOL no sorry cos you told me to change the path before and the whole point of chosing was that people were locked into one path. So sorry but not more changes :D
  • nod
    The total tally for the Best Bargain Race is now posted ]here
  • nod
    Lisss you need to chose a path :)
  • nod
    The latst http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/jungle4.JPG
  • ScarletRubies
    Nod, I'm not 100% clued up on time zone differences, but were you doing this at 4am??? Mad.
  • golfwidow
    My 4 from yesterday 12 March are showing as Tuesday the 11 March :confused: Im only doing 4 a day i promise.....and my time zone is correct.
  • nod
    twas 6 am Ruby :D and I was updating the comp ..... badly it appears :o
  • nod
    There seems to be something odd going on here... or I have finally lost the plot and can't see or count :D
  • golfwidow
    My posts from yesterday show the right time and day i posted in top left corner but the time on the actual deal is off by a day :confused: For example..... http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/showthread.php?t=7873
  • ScarletRubies
    I'm not sure how to tally mine, or I'd help, Nod. I thought I was paying my time zones well, and have 10 deals and a freebie (unless vouchers don't count). But, as you saw earlier, I clearly know nothing about time zones and am in fact quite thick. BUT I have a cold at the moment so I want everyone to pause for a moment, and say "awww, there there..." before berating me for my stupidity.
  • nod
    You should not be so hard on yourself Ruby :D and ... " aw there there.... have this horrible tasting lemon drink.. I am sure it will make you feel better" :eek:
  • ScarletRubies
    It really would/will/does, Nod - I love fresh lemon in hot water with or without a cold. preferably without a cold. And I know I'm not too stupid - which is why I can pick on myself a bit. Ego is not too frail right now. Give me ten minutes for the wind to change though...!
  • nod
    And the latest update :) http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/jungle6.JPG Lisss.. I never did receive a path from you :(
  • craftykiwi
    My little man has changed paths mid-stream. Was heading for the leopard/jaguar and am now heading to the phoenix!! And looks like yellow has jumped ship too. Very strange. I thought no-one was on the phoenix path.
  • nod
    [SIZE=4]Leg Two of the 'Best Bargain Race' closes tonight EDST midnight :) The winners will be announced 10 am EDST tomorrow morning and the location of the 'Buckscoop Heirloom' revealed ....... In the event that a tie has occurred ie two members at the same position .... I have a trick up my sleeve ;)[/SIZE]
  • nod
    [SIZE=5]And after random selection it appears it was the Toucan that had the Heirloom :) So the outright winner is Golfwidow :) Second place goes to Ruby :) And Third place actually goes to Yovi :D Now to the temperature ..... watch this space[/SIZE]
  • nod
    [SIZE=5]And now to the temp... Yovi walks away with the $10 prize for the highest temp and her Snapfish 40% off photobooks deal :D[/SIZE]
  • craftykiwi
    yovi;41326
    i would like to join and pick leopard's way :)
    Congratulations to the winners - was great fun. Don't mean to be a spoil sport but didn't Yovi pick the leopard path?
  • nod
    [SIZE=5]And the last prize to give away is the random prize of $10 ..... so here I go digging into my trusty bag of names :D.............. and Wally gets the last prize :D[/SIZE] Ok that is all up for Leg two ... hope you all enjoyed this leg..... the details for Leg three and the chocolate fest will be posted in the next 24 hours :)
  • nod
    Yeah she did crafty but if you count the steps she was the next closest :D.... I needed a 3rd place :D
  • craftykiwi
    Now I understand. Sorry a bit tired after all the hot weather we've been having. Well done Yovi.
  • yovi
    :w00t: WHOA. Who would have guessed. Thanks Nod. That was great fun.
  • nod
    Hey no probs at all ... the weather has gone a bit haywire :D
  • golfwidow
    Wow. Thanks Nod :) Its great fun doing all these things :)
  • nod
    hey no probs Yovi Thanks to all those members that put all the time and effort into posting deals this week. Next week brings some more fun in leg 3 ..... and Lilpretzel has kidnapped the Easter Bunny http://bestsmileys.com/bunny/1.gif
  • Wally
    Woo Hoo! Pays to Participate!! :w00t: At the risk of driving people crazy with pedantry ... if the Toucan was holding the heirloom then Golfy Ruby & Yovi should not ave won coz they were closer to a MaCaw whereas I was closer to a Toucan :p :whistling: Only joking .. Congrats to the Winners!
  • Keeys
    I died in the bum lol Well done to the winners things just got to busy here. Swimming yesterday and again today. Eldest son made it through to state though so was worth it :)
  • nod
    That is an awesome effort Keeys - congrats :)
  • golfwidow
    Congrats to your son Keeys. That is great work :)
  • Keeys
    We are very proud of him and he is of himself. Brice is on the ASD spec and was a prem bub thats had alot of hurdles along the way so its even more special to us. :)
