Have you played Woot! Clue! yet? It’s a game run by yours truly an hour before the new Monday – Friday products go up for sale. Your goal is to guess the item coming up for sale on a site that I’ve chosen for that day’s game.

I’ll give you a clue to start and a couple others along the way. But you better be good at reading between the lines if you expect my clues to make it easier. The style is “20 Questions” – you ask yes/no questions and I’ll answer them.

We’ve been playing this for a few weeks now and I’m ready to roll it out to the big leagues – you!

Want to see what it’s like? Here’s a few games that we’ve played recently:

This game had 28 players and lasted about 25 minutes before a correct guess.

We played this one on the last day of the woot-off last month. We had 98 players!!! They just about wore me out! It took 48 minutes to get a correct guess or at least close enough.


So come join us and pass the time while you wait for the next Woot!

When: An hour before the Monday – Friday products go up for sale (Su-Th, 11pm CST)

Where: On the site I’ve chosen for that day’s game. I’ll always put a quality post in the Discussion box on the Woot! main page pointing you to the game.

Why: Why not! Who knows, maybe you’ll get a surprise if you’re have the correct answer!



Interested? Here’s a few tips that’ll get you started:

• The game is fast so don’t be late! Typical games are over in 15-20 minutes. The shortest game is 6 minutes; the longest 48 minutes.

• I usually require the manufacturer, name, model, size, or other pertinent information for the product for a correct guess. That means, always give complete answers!

• Everyone plays. You can be the correct guess once a week. You can play all the time but only guess if you are eligible, please. Share the fun!

• You are limited to 2 questions per post.

• The game ends at 11:55pm before RSS feeds and Tweets go out about the sales.

Can you guys do this on the weekend as well? I work Monday-Friday so can't realistically be on the computer at just about midnight CT.

Otherwise, I would totally play.

Of course not, silly! We're in a woot-off! To play Woot Clue right now would give us the impression that the Woot-off is going to be over and the suspense of ongoing woots is removed!

Like... maybe a week-long break? It's too fun to close up shop forever!

Until further notice. We will look at what we've learned and be thinking of other ideas to engage the community.

I would suggest something that everyone can play .

Many people work in the morning so it is difficult to stay up until after 11pm CT. Most nights I'm in bed by 10pm.

Agreed. Maybe instead of a speed game, you could give one clue every hour or something?
