HERE http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/616749/overtext-treasure...


(Sorry not a geeklist as being in BGG-related seemed better!)





Is overtext a waste of code and time?
Did you resent 100 gg for something you can't see?
Did you post saying overtext is useless?




On the 7th of Feb we'll put overtext to the test.



On the 7th at around 3 pm NY Time
A geeklist will appear that will start the first ever highly themed overtext Treasure hunt



There will be two prizes of 100 gg and 10 of 10gg

Oh and microbadges for all participants.

Darn, I have to work on the 7th!
Does it start on the 7th early NZ time? Then I could set my alarm clock real early....

Edit: 3pm NY time... Okay, I will have to wait all day that Monday too.... but at least I'll be home then so I can hit refresh several time until the geeklist shows up.

It would be really unfair if the timing was so precise. And Sam isn't quite that daft. Based on previous posts, he has implied that it will run for quite a while - a week or two IIRC, so unless your employer is particularly keen for you to work long hours, you should be fine.

There will be a thread on the 7th under Board Game related. it will give clues on where to go. Not knowing English will be a little bit of an issue but most of the clues are key words so if you can search you can play.

ALSO there will be prizes drawn for people who finish as well as the first home. So if you're bit behind it won't matter so much.

The event will start on the 7th and go to the 14th and a few minutes every day or other day may be enough
