I tried Agog for impatient/anxious rather than going for tired.

Yes they have. (Except 53-down, which continues to elude)

I imagine so. It shows winners for every clue so far except 53-down.

Unless there's a delay from marking on the spreadsheet that there's a winner and emailing said winners.

From the original post, it says that the clues will only be on woot.com, and no other sites (I would think that would mean kids, home etc), however that appears to be incorrect. Please confirm.

That is correct. Where you seeing other clues? Do we have a ROGUE CROSSWORD?

They have been frequently posted on non woot.com items.

Awake and back to trying again. This is the most I've paid attention to Woot in a long time, and I'm really enjoying it. Good idea, Woot!

I checked Home and Kids and found no clues. Lichme must be either trolling or confused.

Trying to find examples, but the page I found them on (the I want one page) isn't showing for expired deals. It was on them though (I specifically saw one on sport early on). It was under the "wootbot says" section of the I want one page. I'll let you know if I find any more, but there was 3-4 at least.

For those who haven't tried answering 53-down yet, I've thought of "Gone", but put in "Worn". Not sure if anyone wants to try that since I haven't seen it suggested yet.

i've exceeded my guess limit for "53-Down: Many of you right now, probably" but just to throw it out there, did anyone trie "ired"?

How do you guys know if you've actually found a clue in the items? This is the first time I've tried looking, didn't know if it was obvious or just guessing.

I tried 'Numb' for 53-down. It's a crappy answer, but I at least wanted to get a guess in. There's a million 4-letter words that could describe people browsing woot.com.

Insert signature here.

I think I just wasted my attempt on 53-down with ABED, has anyone tried LOST?

It's pretty obvious. If you're on the front page for a product (before you get to the details page), there's usually a box with a description of the product in it. Currently, it's something along the lines of "The LED or 'Lunchroom Explosive Device'.." The clue will be here.

on the woot.com page, right above the "it's woot-off time" is the short description box for the item. if a clue is being delivered during that particular item, you will see something like "14-Across: Sports src".

when you see that, you should send an email to crapword@woot.com with the clue as the subject (ie. "14-Across: Sports src") and your answer in the body of your email.

it's in the Wootbot Says box in the item description screen.

Question: 53 down is posted on the crapword blog page, but I didnt see it on the item yet. Can you still guess, or do you have to wait 'till it appears on the items page?

Where's the crap?

i got a reply last nite that indicated that while my answer was correct, it was not one of the first two winners. but i have a feeling that things are too hectic now as regards being able to reply to each and every person.

i would hazard a guess that if you see the clue on the crapword page and there is no answer for it then no one has submitted the correct answer yet and it's still up for grabs.

Anyone else that has won so far tickled with your 'individudal' BOC page? I've never gotten to see my name on the stats area as first (and last!) wooter to woot. xD

I'm taking a screenshot to save it. Hahaha



Too many to list... Woot on, Wayne.

As a heads up- you don't have to use the email associated with your woot account to enter (and win).

For 53 I guessed "work," because that's where I am, but I doubt it

Are you talking about the sheet with the answers to clues that have already been solved...or was there a bug that showed all of them?
