It's already Day 3 of the Ultimate Challenge, and we gotta tell ya. You guys are blowing us away with your enthusiasm! We especially love that you continue to post videos even though you don't think you've made the top five.

And on that note, don't let those quick-draw mcgraws discourage you. As the results of Day 2's challenge proved, you could be #6 and still nab a Bag of Crap because one of the previous videos failed to include all the key elements of the challenge.

In case you need a refresher on those rules, here they are:

THE RULES

  • The first FIVE (5) people to post their own Ultimate Challenge video in the discussion thread of the corresponding blog post (NOT the Video Wootcast thread or the YouTube thread) will receive a private link to a page where they can purchase a Bag of Crap. These links will be unique to each purchaser, and sent via PM.
  • The items used in your personal video do NOT have to be identical to the items we use in our video. However, it needs to be a reasonably approximate re-creation of the same action. For instance, if our video shows us bouncing Ping-Pong balls into Solo cups, you have to be bouncing some sort of ball into some sort of cup. A video of you tap-dancing to "Fast Car" by Tracy Chapman, while extraordinarily entertaining, will not be counted as an eligible submission.
  • You do NOT need to best our competitors. But if you don't, we'll laugh at you.
  • You can only post one video per challenge. If you post more than one video per challenge, none of your videos will count.
  • As always with the BOC, individuals are limited to one BOC per week. So if you get one, you're done.
 

Now ... ready to show us what you've got? I present to you the Woot Ultimate Challenge!

DAY 3: SQUIRT GUN MARKSMANSHIP

THE SCORE TO BEAT

Despite Kristy's obviously superior sniper stance, Jason snags the victory with a whole bunch of Army men knocked down versus Kristy's not many Army men knocked down. We don't know the actual numbers because we were too lazy to count.

Jason - Win!, Kristy - Lose :(

Couldn't find little toy soldiers, figure stormtroopers are soldiers, right?? The gun scared me when it went off, I was not expecting a stream that powerful!

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

Hmm... and now a conundrum for the late hour.

Stay up, see if I can nab a link fast enough to get a Bandolier of Carrots or... go to sleep and wait and hope my video makes the cut to get a link tomorrow.

Question though, if I happen to score a Bandolier of Carrots tonight during the woot off, would I still be bound by the 1 Bandolier of Carrots per week thing?

Once again, I'm late to the game, plus I didn't have a squirt gun so I had to improvise. Also, sorry about the vertical video syndrome...I'll remember to rotate the camera next time, I promise!

Are ... are those wee cows? This whole thing is so hideously awesome, I'm actually sad you didn't get in there faster.

Yes, mini cows! From the Swedish board game "Fabodspelet - Tjugo Vita Kossor" or, in English, "20 Cows". The basic premise of the game is to go through the board collecting herds of cows and whoever has the most at the end wins. Different things happen at different spots along the path. It was one of my favorite games as a child.

And thanks for the sympathy points. I'm actually having a lot more fun approaching the challenges casually and being goofy rather than trying hardcore to win a bag. Especially since I'm moving next week, so the last thing I need around the apartment is more crap!

This was fun. I'd never done a video, had to figure out youtube. (wouldn't work on my phone so I had to figure how to compress and mail the video too!) hehehe

Excited for the chance. Hopeful that I had JUST found my son's water gun this afternoon (buried in his sock drawer?) and so I figured I might as well go for it!

My marksmanship is poor. But hey, no editing this time!



EDIT:
True story about the one with the eyepatch. My son came to me and part of the face of his soldier was rubbed off. The soldier actually didn't have silver on any part, and was just gray. "Fix him, Mommy," says my four-year-old.

He now has silver embellishment paint on his stirrups, belt, helmet, and cuffs. And an eyepatch.

I hope he never loses it.

I am wondering the same thing...but different. I snagged a day 2 Ultimate Challenge PM Bag of Crap. Can I get a Bag of Crap during the woot off too? That is...if I am fast enough with copy/paste.

It seems to me I should be able to since it is being offered in a different format. I see that once per week deal as one Bag of Crap for each way they offer them during that week.

I am guessing the woot! staff is monitoring this thread. However, if I don't see a response in the somewhat near future, I will probably copy/paste this in another thread.

The girlfriend had better things to do than help make me a video of me squirting a deodorant stick. Things like sleeping.

My kid had to be up for preschool the next day, so waking him up would have been bad parenting. ;)

Sorry for the late response, y'all. The official answer to this is, yes, you can get a Bandolier of Carrots in both the Ultimate Challenge AND the Woot Off. Just not two from one of them. Happy Wooting!
