Portents. Auguries. Signs. They all point to the world coming to an end in about another week and a half. At least, they do if you squint really hard at some selectively chosen bits and pieces of Mayan mythology. To mark this reasonably important occasion, help you prepare for what's next, and give you a shot at some inexpensive Christmas gifts in case the Mayans were just kidding, we present Armagedd-Off 2012, a three-day Woot-Off of cataclysmic proportions.

But that's not all. Totally goofy Armagedd-Off 2012 trading cards will appear in the photo galleries for twelve of the hundred of items in this Woot-Off. By collecting them all, and following the clues carefully encoded in them thousands of years ago by ancient Photoshop clerics, you can find your way to a special never-before-seen t-shirt of Earth-shattering power! Here's how it works:

  1. Find all twelve trading cards between now and Wednesday.
  2. Assemble the clues into a word that will fill in the blank at the end of this URL:
    shirt.woot.com/offers/__________ .
  3. Buy the special t-shirt you find there! (Yes, buy. It took some work to collect those Star Wars proofs of purchase, too, but you still had to pay for Boba Fett.)
  4. No, there is absolutely not a Bag o' Crap involved anywhere in this thing in any way. For real. This warning is not us being cute. If you could see our faces, you'd know how serious we were. Please don't get into this expecting you'll wind up with a Bag o' Crap. You won't. Mark our words.


Fight along with a band of plucky humans as they struggle against the mutant threat in a blasted-out nightmarescape they never made! And maybe get your hands on a weird little t-shirt! If there's a better way to spend your last days on Earth than Armagedd-Off 2012, we don't want to know about it, because we have to work this thing either way. Now get into that discussion thread and work with your fellow humans to figure this thing out BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!

I actually forgot that BsOC were possible. Guess that's why I don't come around much anymore.

So we should read this as woot confirming the bag, right?

A Piece of Shirt, that's smart. Slickdeal peeps would just ignore this then!

The Woot-off seems to have some lightning deals that disappear after they are sold out... I'm guessing that cards will not be in these deals, then?

So will the 'Cards' only be on the main woot site or the other sites also? Just to clarify...
Thanks

Is it a "I survived the apocalypse and all I got was this T-shirt" shirt?

Yeah, I fell for this crap last time you made us waste our time. At least that time it had Big Ol' Cataclysm in the end...though we soon learned how cheap and irradiated woot made it with only a small handful of Big Ol' Cataclysm

Not going to play your reindeer games anymore woot.

Been a pretty busy customer of yours too only to be let down way too many times. Seems like Amazon DID change you after all...and obviously not for the better.

Er...? No one is making you participate in this. It's a game that is there if people wish to partake.

So basically the trick is to check these blogs and ctrl/cmd click the pictures so you go straight to the items pages.

http://www.woot.com/blog
http://home.woot.com/blog
http://kids.woot.com/blog
http://wine.woot.com/blog

As of right now, nothing but the aforementioned speakers has a card.

Edit: Also the gas can

Tell the bearded warrior to keep his finger off the trigger or he'll shoot his eye out! I can see it now, he's the one in the group that "accidentally" shoots the person in front of him in the back fo the head when a rat drops on him from an over hanging pipe..

So, will the clues be found only on the main Woot site, or could they be found on any of the five sites having Woot-Offs today?

They have taken Matt's creation and completely RUINED it.
Completely alienated long time Wooters and now only offer Big Ol' Cataclysm#39;s via FaceCrap & Twitcrap.

I certainly will not stick around just for a t-shirt.
For all you who think this will lead to a Big Ol' Cataclysm you are in for a BIG disappointment.

What kind of elitist attitude makes you think that an online store alienates older customers?

As for the end of this game? It's definitely not a Big Ol' Cataclysm which they've already told us..

If you're disappointed when the game ends in the exact manner it was described to you? That's on them.

So I could either try to find all these clues...or just come back later and when someone else has done all the work for me? I'll do that so I can feel like I'm your boss...now get back to work for me and find those clues!

Is the secret URL live yet, or do we have to wait until all 12 cards have been shown?
