BSC Scavenger Hunt!

Initially, I wanted to do a give away to celebrate my blog’s 1st anniversary, but the more I thought about it, the less appealing it became. My last give away wasn’t that popular - plus, the more people did one (and tumblr is quite flooded with them already), the more it got boring. Come to think about it - everybody can hit ‘reblog’. It’s always nice to win stuff, but it’s even cooler if you have to do something for it - because as soon as one makes it a challenge, you can depend on your very own abilities rather than just luck.

So far, so obvious.
So after thinking about it for a while, I decided to do a Scavenger Hunt instead!

Actually, it’s pretty simple: There will be 12 different challenges over the time span of twelve days. For every challenge, you gain credits, and the person with the most credits wins stuff. Additionally, the person who comes in second place, and a third, randomly picked participant, will win shit too, which is awesome.

And here is what you’re gonna get:

1st  place:

  • A copy of “A Study in Scarlet”, BBC series tie-in (new and unread)
  • A tea mug covered in slogans from the #believeinsherlock-movement (handmade and therefore completely unique)
  • A hand-sewn miniature Plushie!John (to cuddle, dry your tears on, or whatever )
  • 3 sheets of #believe-stickers (you can pick your favourites from my range at the shop, the ones in the picture are only examples)
  • A charm bracelet “221 B” with rhinestone-charms (adjustable to pretty much every wrist)
  • A pair of earrings in a colour theme of your choice (I added a pair to the picture as an example)
  • paper cranes folded from random pages of “The Empty House” (as a lucky charm or… idek why I added them, it’s ridiculous)
  • 5 Sherlock-themed postcards in high-quality photo print (not in the picture)


2nd place:

  • A unique, handmade sketchpad with Sherlock Holmes silhouette and quote on it (for notes, doodles, writing Fanfiction, use as a diary, or whatever tickles your fancy)
  • A Sherlock Holmes pin (originally from the Sherlock Holmes museum in London)
  • 3 sheets of #believe-stickers (same as above, you can pick)
  • paper cranes folded from random pages of “The Empty House”
  • A pair of Loki-themed earrings !or! earrings in a colour theme you choose (since the prizes are Sherlock-themed, I decided to leave you that option; colour themes for other fictional characters are possible, too)
  • 5 Sherlock-themed postcards in high-quality photo print (not in the picture)

 

Randomly picked winner:

  • A custom-made matching set of both earrings and a bracelet in a colour theme of your choice (not in the picture; different materials available, colour-themes for fictional characters are always possible)

Since I will love everyone who takes part in this to bits and pieces and would like to reward *everyone* but have only so much budget, everybody who participates in the Scavenger Hunt (including those who already won awesome stuff) will get a coupon for 1x free shipping for a order they place at Baker Street Corner and a ridiculous, poorly photoshopped certificate with their name on it.

Sounds cool?
Well then, all you have to do is read the rules and become part of the game!

And here are the rules:

- To enter the game, simply drop me an ask saying “I want to take part in the Scavenger Hunt” (or something similar). Obviously, anon requests can’t count.

- Entry ends Tuesday, 10th July 2012, 6 pm GMT [time zone converter]. The first challenge will be released shortly after. Depending on how many people participate, I will then decide if I’ll take more entry requests after the game has started.

- after entry ends, I’ll put a list of all participants on my blog and additionally contact everybody via ask to confirm. Make sure your ask box is open all during the Hunt! If you don’t hear from me until the first challenge is released and/or can’t find your name on the list, please contact me asap!

- One entry per person! Even if you have multiple blogs or URLs, you still can only take part once. I will check!

- You don’t have to follow me to take part, but using fanmail might be convenient for one challenge or the other (though you’ll always have other options if you don’t want to follow)

- I will add a link to the “BSC Scavenger Hunt” tag to my blog, so it’ll be easier for you to track what’s going on.

- additionally, I will tag every new challenge with the names of all participants to make it easier for you to track them!

- the game is Sherlock-themed.

- there will be 12 challenges over a time span of 12 days that will cover a various number of tasks, such as at least one quiz, some creative bits, and some plain stupid shit that I consider funny

- every task can be solved in under half an hour, some even in less than a few minutes, so you can still have a normal life during the Hunt (though it’s completely up to you how much time you want to invest)

- every challenge has a variable number of credits you can gain by solving them. Credits are distributed by the magnificent me, though it might be possible that public votes are included, too.

- you don’t have to solve the challenges in the right order or on the same day that they’re released, but there might be a deadline for certain tasks to avoid cheating. Please keep in touch frequently so you don’t miss a deadline!

- you will have to publish some of your tasks on your blog! Specific rules for every challenge will be announced as time comes (because it just doesn’t make any sense to put them all in here)

- I will tell you the maximum number of credits you can gain as soon as all tasks are ready, but the game is set in a way that makes it close-to-impossible to gain maximum number of credits (obviously because I don’t want half the participants have max. score at the end)

- in the unlikely case that two or more people share the first place, there will be a master round

- the Scavenger Hunt is open worldwide!

- after the game ends, the prizes will be sent out as soon as possible. I pay for shipping and there will be no costs for you

- remember to keep your ask open so I can contact you if you win

 

Last not least, some additional things:

- No cheating! I will check on all participants regularly to guarantee a fair game, but there are parts where I want (and have to) trust you. Remember that we are all friends here and do this for fun. Please don’t get back at me and the other players (and therefore ruin the fun) by trying to be a smart-ass. I’ll discover you anyway and that’ll mean you’ll be excluded from the Hunt.

- I can’t tell you too many times: This is for fun! So don’t be scared. Especially if it comes to the arts/writing/whatever parts, this is much more about being creative than about skills. Also, the game covers a wide range of abilities, which means if you’re awesome at one thing, you can still totally suck at another.

- I will be fair to everybody, and everyone will have the same chances. For example: At least one challenge will involve your very own followers, but you won’t have a disadvantage if you don’t have thousands of them.

- On another note, I’m very well aware that there are give aways going on where you can win much more awesome stuff by just hitting the reblog button. That’s because I just can’t give you an iPhone or whatever, sorry for that. So please consider the prizes as an appeal rather than your prior motivation to take part.

- Also, since I put quite an amount of time and money in this, I decided that there have to be at least 15 participants for the Hunt to take place - so please spread the word and activate all your friends and followers to join in!

 

This been said: Go for it, and may the odds ever be in your favour!

 

Mh.

So.

I was thinking about doing a giveaway.

But.

They got kinda boring, didn’t they?

So I was thinking, why not make it a scavanger hunt instead?

Sounds like rather fun. Also tons of work.

For me, that is.

But also fun.

So.

Who would even participate in something like that?
