After wasting time trying to beat the game, I finally got the link to work. Only took about 8 dozen tries. Good grief.

Thanks for the tip, guys!! :D

Because I have a physical disability I am unable to visually discern the objects quickly enough, my attorney has confirmed that I can sue for TWO bags o' crap. The game is certainly a form of discrimination but I'll be the bigger person and not litigate.

Finally got that link to work, but now it's sold out. How do we find the next one?

The Good News: Yes, make a bookmark and open 50 tabs. Go through them until you find an order page.

The Bad News: "This sale is sold out."

All these poor people going *BOO HOO POOR ME!*.

It's an April Fools joke people. The came cannot be "beaten". You get to lvl 5, and it starts you over at lvl 1.

I got through it several times and never got any Big o' Cosmos's ... so it's just a big April Fools joke! :D



my one question is this, how are the wootbots reporting people purchasing said bags of crap then?

This link will most of the time bring you to the kids woot page, but randomly it will bring you to the order page for the Big o' Cosmos and you just put in order info and you are done I couldn't get past lvl 3 but I got my first Big o' Cosmos today bc of this awesome link!

How to order a Big o' Cosmos:

1. Log in to Woot
2. Enter the following URL into your browser:

https://sslkids.woot.com/wantone/9d24b680-1b0e-438e-a873-507570dc6df4/random-crap-31

3. Press Enter
4. If it doesn't bring you to the buy page, re-enter the URL into your browser and press enter again until you are brought to the buy page

Some people say it's taken them 50+ times to work, others only a few times. Don't worry that it shows you in kids.woot. After the purchase the Big o' Cosmos will be listed under your woot.com account.

You cannot purchase multiple Big o' Cosmos's from different levels.

Alternate links that have been said to work:

https://sslkids.woot.com/wantone/ae51a8dc-0910-445e-823e-182cda3c6d4d/random-crap-30
https://sslwine.woot.com/wantone/ae51a8dc-0910-445e-823e-182cda3c6d4d/random-crap-31

I really don't think the end numbering matters, whether it's 30 or 31 it should work eventually

For the first 45 minutes this was up last night I beat the required level four or five times to get a Big o' Cosmos and never got a code - it either froze or there was an error on the "you're dead" page. It was quite frustrating.

I come back this morning and its on level 8?? Farthest I got was level 5. You all have been busy.

And yes, I blame woot! for my misfortune.

Cleary the link is working because level 8 is selling out faster than level 7 did. I know that's poor induction, but it makes a lot of sense.

When the link 'works' it took me to a page that appeared to be the random crap for sale, but when I went to confirm the info, it changed to the gliders, be very careful with the link, I am not sure it works.

This game is nothing but unavoidable deaths. How is anyone getting past like level four without two things blocking your path at the same time and being forced to just start over.

Also I played this game to level 4 last night and It said I got a Big o' Cosmos but the link just restarted the game. AWESOME!

Don't be too sure. The thing is that Woot really doesn't give a damn about losing customers. They get new customers and lose some old customers every day.

Woot doesn't give a rats a$$ if we stay or leave.

This game blows... They should have made it to where the slug could speed up and slow down (like most games of this type, just see Kongregate's list of games) so that you could bypass the obstacles of two objects right beside each other (go around one before the other one comes), then the game would be fair.

...As a programmer, I find their programming to be seriously lacking (not really, they just didn't think through their random obstacle generator thoroughly enough)...

I have never been able to score a bag during the woot offs - the timing of the bag offering is always when I'm still at work. The closest I've been is when it's the completely random, match the last digit of the stock market game. I was able to purchase, but no match.

So, I was really thrilled last night when I was able to beat the level 4 when it was a bag 3. Like many others who posted, when done, I got an error message. What a big disappointment. It's a luck of the draw if you get a game where there are two obstacles in your way - unfortunately I can't devote more hours to this. I wish I were one of the many who don't have to work (or who live in a time zone where they are off from work)and can pounce on the bag during woot offs or can spend the time playing 20, 50 times to get the win.

I've never posted on here before. but i tried this and as far as i can tell it does work, but it comes up like a kids.woot.com site order page, but stats random crap -level 9, mine was 8 but you get the idea.

Was there any attempt at all to make this a game of skill, or do the humans at woot that came up with this idea intend for it to be a frustrating and waste of time game of chance?

If you're going to make it a game of chance, at least make it a slot machine so that I don't have to sit through half of a game until I get to the point where death is unavoidable.

Also, it would have been nice if the DAMN THING WOULD HAVE LOADED when the lower levels were going.

I'm done with this crap, I can go find random crap that isn't as frustrating to obtain.
