Still in the waiting room, just waiting for it to refresh and tell me that it's sold out.
I am all for treasure hunting, the adventure is a blast. Since I am no quick draw... How about you muster up some bags and let the trusty f5 key do thy bidding?

Well that's less than fully satisfying.
ok, that's over, now I need to decide if I want a pink ukelele from 1SaleADay.
oh woot, waiting in your antechamber of doom is like waiting at the DMV *looks around for any sign of progress*
Still in waiting room...will it throw me out if sold out

Great idea using an image hosting service, by the way, Woot!
On the other hand, I miss the stats that told us how many were sold and what the Woot! Wage was!

1SaleADay is sketchy!

Still in the Antechamber of Doom. Probable LOSS. Oh well, maybe next time. At least I can light my cigars with a gun now.
Holy crap that was a lighter?! I was too focused on the treasure map to really pay attention and thought it was either A. Replica faux gun or B. Toy gun. Had I known it was a lighter, I would've been in for at least one! I too want to light my cigars with a gun!! =(
Dear Woot: If I ever make it out of the Waiting Room and to the order page, please oh please put a gun lighter in my Buccaneers of Caribbean Thanks much! Love, Me!
Sigh, kicked out of the antechamber. At least I had a chance tonight.
Poop, after all that it's already gone.
Plus I couldn't even get the second map to work. I had to print and assemble it in Black and White, so I think I messed up somewhere.
What can I say, no color printer here.
Soooo, still in the waiting room. What do I do now? Wait? 'Cause I wanna go to bed.
I never get the Buccaneers of Caribbean i've been trying for a long time to get one, but nope. One time i was close, but the loading screen for the ordering process was extremely slow, so I didn't get one. =/

Thus doesth the gods of woot punish those that disregard the secrecy clause of the treasure hunt. Such as it was done so shall it be done until the end of time, or this wootoff whichever comes firsteth.

You gave them your bag.
Just refreshed to the sold out page for me. I'm out!

I haven't been playing the map stuff, been too busy most of the day--but was on Woot, checking out the various parts, buying a little of this n' that, then back to main Woot, and it was this dumb lighter, but when I read the comments, apparently the lighter was the Buccaneers of Caribbean in disguise somehow. Can anyone explain all this? also, why does it show sold out, but seems to be stuck there (no new item)? Thanks for any enlightenment, all you more devoted map-playing wooters.
The map was the key - it spelled out a special URL to get to the Beast of Cranberries.

Go to bed.

I'm still in it, for now...but I think I'd rather be in bed. Oh Woot...why must you torment me so?
Made me sign in again, then booted me out to the sold out buy page...booooo
didnt get it after waiting for 10 minutes in the chamber of doom
put up a new deal already !!!!!!!
i just got redirected to sold out. man i thought i was in there pretty quickly too!
Waiting room just sent me to the sold out page
Aaaand, there we have it - booted out of the Antechamber in Chrome, but still waiting there in Firefox (not holding out any hope there).
[I have no idea what just happened...
I got kicked to the login page...even though I had already logged in minutes prior to going into the antechamber(made me think I had a chance at one and somehow got logged out).
No, you aren't seeing a side effect from your allergy medication. You have found a Woot-Off, a short term frenzied mutation of our product posting procedure. In Woot-Off mode, a new product is launched immediately after the sellout of the previous deal. There is a half-Woot-life of 12 hours maximum on any product within a Woot-Off that does not sell out. The number of Woot-Off items, sequence and quantity will not be announced. When Woot-Off mode is over, the orange lights will disappear and our normal schedule will resume. Depending on its success, this may be a mode we would go into once or twice a month for a relatively short duration of time (24-72 hours generally).
Well, I finally got booted back to the sold out page.
Two wasted days.
And that's that. I was quick, I was on it - probably 15-20 seconds after the map posted I had the link. Immediate click and then the waiting room up until now.
Congrats to those that were faster than that! Impressive.
See you next time!

So wat was the passcode?

Or, at least, end the danged thing instead of leaving us hanging. I know it's sold out, but I can't bring myself to close the dang thing.
But I keep hoping that someone's card will get declined.
can I plead with the Woot Gods to grant me success, as a b-day gift?!?! Please....
1. I think it's the last woot off item and therefore there likely will not be another item until midnite CST.
2. Each time an item was posted with a map piece, we assembled that piece with the prior piece. The map revealed a URL one piece at a time. One we had the last piece which revealed the final characters of the URL, we went to that URL and it was a Buccaneers of Caribbean for sale (briefly). So that's how that worked.

Wait - There are cranberries in that bag? Now I want it! I need something to eat tonight at work.

Really? I've ordered from them a handful of times, and I've never had any trouble. Do you know something I don't?
They sold me my Roku XS after I waited a month for woot to offer one.
(honest; I really was waiting for Woot, and nothing, they offered the lowest end Roku at 5 am during a woot off after I waited 3 weeks after deciding I wanted one, and then lo and behold, 1SaD had the XS, as a refurb, for $59)
If you're waiting in the antechamber you might as well stop. I entered the url fast, was immediately placed in the chamber, was asked eventually to log in, it kept refreshing and finally loaded the buy page... where it is most definitely sold out.
