2012 Woot Monkey Games

That's right, they're back! The Monkey Games, our now-apparently-annual-we-guess celebration of office athletics and company-mandated "fun," are here once again! But we're not the only ones who have to suffer get to participate! You can play along at home with your very own Monkey Games uniform!

By purchasing a certain color, am I casting a vote for one team or another?

How bout next time there be an option for a color pack that would include the t-shirt, monkey and sweatshirt. That way we can rep the color all out.

THANK YOU!!!

I almost gave up on getting any more real woot monkeys (I am a firm believe that an evil presence had entered the purchasing dept at woot and substituted the masked monkeys for our beloved hooded monkeys).

These monkeys bring bring my total up to about 350 (yes, I am certifiably crazy).

I'll let you guys in on a secret...Tangerine Tango may be the 2012 color of the year, but CRANBERRY is going to be the color for 2013. Get in early before they're gone :o)

Someone in the Woot Design Dept. wasn't on the ball. They should have had the 5 pack in the Olympic colors (blue, yellow, black, green and red) with the remaining two colors in the 7 pack.

But then again, it forces us (yeah, right!) to buy the 7 pack to complete the "Olympic" set.


But I too, must second (or third or fourth!) the joy in seeing the proper mask on the monkeys.

It felt like they were "replacements", and not original Woot Monkeys!!

Well, I might consider it ... for certain considerations that is.


So which departments are behind the colors? Cranberry appears to be "Team Assets".

Decisions, decisions. Go with the Green TT suggested, or wait for Inky to confirm which Seattle color to buy. Or go with Cranberry or Red to (assumption is the mother of all ... ) support fellow IT minions.

It's a tough call. Coffee brown is quite nice though. I might be biased! I think the writers need love for all the hard work they do.

(I didn't realize you were waiting on me! I would have come back to this thread much sooner.)

I thought I was safe from spending my entire paycheck this week. No woot-off and no shirts in the shirt side sale I wanted. Then I check here....darn it, I had to deposit money just to buy the monkeys, and on my Wednesday payday, I'll be buying some shirts and a water bottle. Why must you take all my monies woot?!!! Ahhhhhhh!
