Ahoy, matey!

Well this is just great. Your old corsair companion Crapbeard has scattered pieces of his treasure maps across the face of this Woot-Off. Help me piece together my maps, and I'll give ye a share of me ample booty!

Y'harrr. Such a stereotype of a pirate be I. As if the peg leg, eyepatch, and emblematic exclamations weren't enough, now I've gone and scattered my treasure maps across the Seven Seas like some kind of caricature of piracy. Shiver me hackneyed timbers!

Here's how you can help: Scour the horizon for sails. Y'harrr, I mean "sales." If you see the word TREASURE (in all caps! very important!), dig! A piece of my map is buried somewhere underneath, or my name isn't Crapbeard.

There be two maps, each leading to stashes of my namesake treasure; one fer Tuesday, one fer Wednesday. Find them, and ye'll be rich beyond your wildest dreams! (If yer wildest dreams be extremely underwhelming.)

Y'harrr!

Something tells me I won't win, but this looks awesome! So I'm guessing though, there's only gonna be 2 rounds of bags by the sound of this?

I keep looking at all the sales, and hitting ctrl+f, and highlighting all the words "treasure" and nothing. :< So, it's a waiting game then?

Pay attention to images too, even background images could contain a clue.

Look for the word "TREASURE" in this space:



When you see it, click through to that sale's detail page, and look for the map fragment.

Put the map fragments together throughout the course of each day - there'll be one map on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.

THEN ALL SHALL BE REVEALED

Well he made it where we know what we have to do. But that requires being around all day long. Unfortunately not all of us can do that. Shame

That's just the part that's supposed to be easy... the gateway crap, if you will...

Arrrrrr, Cap'n Crapbeard is going to give you a share of his "ample booty". Is that saying he is a fat arse? Makes the name Crapbeard worthy I suppose.

Over on the irc channel we were wondering if the link will stay, or come and go ... or if you care to share that detail.

Yeah, I don't like that. I have to sleep at some point, and more than likely, that will be when one of the words will appear. As far as I can tell, there isn't a way to go back and see those posts.

Ah, but the sales don't vanish, do they? For them what know, a reverse-sequential list of our sales is always just a click away...

With my luck, the last fragment will be whilst I'm at work in evening That's how I usually miss craps. Darn you, work.

will the TREASURE only be on woot proper? or all the woot family sites having a woot off?

I like the fact that the woot off goes until the 19th, which is International Talk like a Pirate day. Well wooted...well wooted.
