    http://www.masterpiecepumpkins.com/Graphics/TrickOrTreat95%20(2)__________PM.jpg Here we are AT the final game to celebrate our [SIZE=3] BUCKSCOOP BIRTHDAY MONTH[/SIZE] And tonight we play [SIZE=6]BUCKSCOOP TRICK OR TREAT[/SIZE] http://bestsmileys.com/halloween2/1.gif You will need to pop your thinking caps on to play. Here is HOW TO PLAY: Phase One: 1. I will post up 4 clues that need to be answered. 2. Each clue contains the name of a Buckscoop merchant. The name appears in the clue but in a jumbled form 3. You need to solve each clue, that is find the name of each merchant and then PM me, ]Nod with ALL 4 answers 4. You then have the chance to pick yourself a Trick or a Treat. But you of course... you wont know which is which :twisted: 5. The first 10 people to PM me with the answers will then enter the next stage of the game. You will only be given 20 minutes to solve the 4 clues. Here is an example: Clue: My 4 leap that fence all the time. What a silly game. Answer: Play4me You rearrange the letters " my 4 leap" to get Play4me and of course they sells games Simple ;)
  • nod
    Phase 2: 1. The ten people to answer the clue get to chose a witches hat (I will post the picture of the 10 witches hats at 7PM AEST) 2. Under each hat is a trick or a treat and it is the luck of the draw as to which you find. 3. The treats are vouchers or other goodies 4. The tricks ...... yet to announced http://bestsmileys.com/halloween2/3.gif 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! · The first 10 members to PM Nod the correct answers, and who have abided by these rules, will enter the next phase of the competition. · All clues must be answered and are merchants listed on Buckscoop. These merchants have also appeared in deals in the 'Hot Deals' section · The clue 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. Oh and we will disqualify you from the game · You will only get 1 chance to PM your entry 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. - You only receive one chose for the witches hate - We can't force you to complete the trick but trust me they wont be that bad ;)
