[Soompi Event] Welcome to Our Annual Holiday Hunt on Soompi Forums! [ALL WINNERS ANNOUNCED]

Recommended Posts

Happy holidays, Soompiers!

yVXISrhX30J5xzkGx6Kw-9FIuX0viDTqExXi3Voj

 

December is always a super fun, super exciting, and all around amazing month because of the holidays, the beginning of a new year, the chance to see some beautiful snowfall, the various award shows for music and dramas, and, of course, Soompi’s Annual Holiday Hunt Event!

 

If you’re a repeat participant, then welcome back! We’re happy to see familiar faces! Errr… I mean, names.

If you’re a newcomer, then welcome to twelve days of fun! We’re happy to see you here!

 

Now, here’s a breakdown of how this event works:

 

Every day at 12:25pm PST from Thursday, December 15th through Monday, December 26th, a hint will be posted in this forum thread. Using that clue, put on your holiday hunting gear and search for the blue present box that will be hidden anywhere within the Soompi forums. The gift box will be big and noticeable, but… only if you’re in the right place! ;)

 

Each clue will only be up for that one day, so please make sure to save your answers in a safe place until it’s time to submit them at the end of each round.

 

I repeat, each clue will only be available for ONE day, so save, save, save! (Our recommendation is to write down the thread name and page number of where you saw that sneaky gift box, copy the URL, and/or take a screenshot of the present.)

 

In total, there will be four rounds with each round lasting three days. At the end of each round, a Google Form will be posted, also in this forum thread, for you to submit your answers. You will have only one day after each round to submit, then a random person with all the correct answers will be selected, via the draw-a-name-out-of-a-hat method as the winner, which means that, at the end of the Holiday Hunt event, we will have a total of four winners.

 

This year, our prizes will be a SIGNED Lucky Romance OST, an Uncontrollably Fond drama poster, a Cheese in the Trap notebook, and a one month Viki pass voucher.

 

To make things fair on which winner gets which prize, on Tuesday, December 27th, I, akinahana89, will send admin, benightedxflame, a PM with a number between 1 and 50. Then, on Wednesday, December 28th, each of the four winners will send me ONE guess on what that mystery number is. After all guesses have been submitted, the four winners will be invited into the PM between me and benightedxflame to see what that mystery number was. The order of the winners will be ranked by closest to the mystery number without going over and will be matched to the order of the prizes as listed above.

 

Without further ado, THIS is what the blue present box looks like:

[Winners Round]

    Begin: Wednesday, December 28th 12:25pm PST
    End: Thursday, December 29th 12:25pm PST
Rankings Announced: Before Friday, December 30th 12:25pm PST


 

Sample Hint:

 

    “Neither young nor old, yet both at the same time;

    Alone somewhere between living and existing;

    Narrowly escaped the burning path of fire;

    Always by my side is a warm but lifeless companion.”
 

    If you know my age, you will find your present.

 

Answer: The hint was an acrostic poem and spells out the word “NANA.” NANA was a character from the drama, “Kill Me, Heal Me,” which was described in the poem itself and she was seven years old. The blue present box would have been found on the 7th page of the “Kill Me, Heal Me” drama thread.

 

Sample Hint 2:

 

Two members of this group were born on the same day. Find out the birth year of the older member and, using the last two digits, look for the first present in this girl group thread.
 

Answer: Qri and Eunjung from girl group, T-ara, share the same birth month and day (December 12th). Qri was born in 1986 and Eunjung in 1988. Qri is the older member between the two, so the blue present box would have been found in T-ara’s thread on page 86.

 


For more examples or to familiarize yourself with the holiday hunt process, take a look at last year’s thread here.

 

This event is open to all Soompiers, but please don’t be a grinch and ruin the fun by soliciting and/or providing the answers. Gentle hints are acceptable, but it’s no fun if the answer gets posted in the public thread! (If you’re curious about the answers, it will be all be revealed at the end of the event, so hang tight!)

 

And now… let the games begin!

 

Ready!

 

Set!

 

HUNT!!

Destined to be seen but remain unseen.

Hello~ 

A gentle hint: in the hint, usually you find something that gives you the direction to the forum section/topic where the treasure is.

In the beginning it's easy and you can get even the topic and page where to search. As the hunt goes on, things gets more complicated to figure out.

For this one,  it'll be easy for those that likes puzzles because to have a full picture you have to assemble various small pieces together.

(Hope  I'm not giving it away too much. Once I spilled a hint and I didn't even noticed it).

You'll find the blue present box. You have to screenshot it or save the link of where you have found it.

Later you'll have to submit the location of the ones you have found, so mark it someway in order to not forget where they are.

There'll be a google form for us to send the location of the boxes we've found. No need to upload or post the location in any thread/topic.

Screenshot the gift, save the URL, AND/OR write down the thread name and page number.

Deadline is every THREE days, so save all the information until the round is over, come back to this thread for the Google form, and submit your answers. ^^

OMG!

It's the first time I'm trying it out! I can't believe that I have actually found the box. I thought it was impossible. So exciting!

Good luck, everyone!
