Update: This competition has now ended. Thanks to all that participated!
The winners were Nickolas – BoB2; and Alicia – Wireless Bridge
It’s that time again where I have a Bob2 and a Wireless Bridge from iiNet to giveaway to lucky readers of JackCola.org. This competition is a follow on from the Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock competition I had a while ago, which I am sure many people had great fun participating in.
This time, it’s a little different. From December 1st to December 12 2011, I’ll be giving out a series of questions in many different parts of the web between that time. This could be on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, JackCola.org’s newsletter, this website, and maybe a few secrete locations as well.
More information about the prizes can be found below:
How to play
Playing is really easy. Keep an eye out on questions between December 1st and December 12th 2011, and fill out the form below with your answer. Just make sure you keep an eye out on the questions on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, my newsletter and website for them. Questions might also be a little tricky to find as well – but there will be clues if no one seems to answer them.
How to win
To win, it’s quite simple. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins. But here’s the tricky part. Questions won’t necessarily be worth the same amount of points, and you can get bonus points by doing other things like referring people to this competition. There may be one question asked per day, or 10 questions asked per day – so make sure you keep an eye out for them.
The person at the end of the of the game with the most amount of points will get to pick their choice of a BoB2 or a Wireless Bridge. If there is a tie between the winners, whoever answered the last question first will win. The winner for the remaining prize will be randomly chosen.
How points are scored
There are a number of ways points are gained for a question. The question will outline how many points the question is worth.
- Fixed Points – Questions are worth a fixed amount of points, and can be worth anything. Questions will include how many points it’s worth like (2pts), or (5pts). The questions that are still able to be answered can be found below.
- Timed Points – These will be worth a lot, and will be marked as (time) in the question. The amount of points timed questions are worth will be varied depending on the number of people who answer it. With timed questions, to get the most amount of points, you have to answer them as quickly as possible. Points are calculated like this: If 20 people answer the question, the first person who answered will get 20 points, the second person, 19 points, the third person 18 points and so on, all the way to the 20th person (last person who answers) who will get 1 point. So the first person to answer timed questions can rapidly increase their chances of winning – so make sure you keep an eye out for them.
- Referrals – The more people you refer to this game, the more points you can get. Every person you successfully refer to participate in this game, you will receive 5 points for, and they will receive 2 points. But to be fair to those who don’t have a large list of followers to refer, the maximum points anyone can get for referrals will the median value of all points for all eligible players within the game – so it’s still better to refer a lot of people has you don’t know how many points people may get. Referral points will be calculated at the end of the game. Those who are caught abusing the referral system will be disqualified.
