Title: GPWizard Advent Competition 2012
Post by: Wizzo on November 30, 2012, 12:35:28 PM
Its that time of year when we are full of festive cheer and we wish goodwill to our fellow man. A time when we should forget about the world's troubles and unite in spirit and celebrate Christmas and all that it stands for.

Well you can forget about all that nonsense! You are about to embark on our traditional trip through one of the most devious, dark and frustrating events of the year. I lovingly call it - The GPWizard Advent Competition.
 

The Competition (Please read carefully)
Every day for the first 24 days in December a Question or Letter will be placed on the GPWizard Advent Calendar (navigation at the top of the page). Answers to the questions also represent a letter. i.e Answer = Jenson Button then the letter for the day will be either 'J' or 'B'. This will be clearly indicated on the day.

The aim is to collect 24 individual letters and rearrange them into a Christmas sentence.
 
Once you have the complete sentence you will need to PM me with your answer. It is in your interest not to post your answer on the site as members who have not been following the competition will all know your answer.

I will only accept answers received on 24th December.

If you miss a question or letter, then you can still try and complete the sentence, it will just be a little harder for you. There may even be a bonus letter day, (if you're lucky). Any questions or comments? Please post them below for all to see.

The Prize - Red Bull Cap signed by both Sebastian Vettel & Mark Webber

(http://www.gpwizard.co.uk/images/prizes/redbullcap.jpg)



The Rules
* One Question or letter will be placed on the advent calendar per day.
* Answers to each Question will represent a letter i.e if the answer is Jenson Button then the letter for the day will be either 'J' or 'B' as indicated on the day.
* The completed Christmas sentence must be PM to me on 24th December - all   submissions before or after this date will be dismissed.
* If more than one correct entry is received then the winner will be chosen at random. I cannot accept the first correct answer given as this would be unfair due to the different time zones.

Good luck everyone...It's going be a good one!

One problem, Wizzo. How can we PM our answers on the 24th when that's three days after the Mayans say the world will end? Of course, by the 21st, most of us in the Advent Competition will be ready for the end of the world!  :crazy:

Title: Re: GPWizard Advent Competition 2012
Post by: Wizzo on December 09, 2012, 01:36:16 PM
Yes Ian the firstname and surname are in the wordsearch. I thought this would give you two chances to find it. Kind 'ain't I?
Title: Re: GPWizard Advent Competition 2012
Post by: F1fanaticBD on December 09, 2012, 02:29:23 PM
Could have added the middle name as well Wizzo, as you wish to be so kind to us  :tease:

Oh you know that will mean trouble.   >:( >:(  Everything has its price in the Advent Comp.

Every time I see the picture of Santa on the Advent page, I am reminded of that hellish year he made us look all over the site for letters.  I was so certain that belt buckle was the letter E (which it wasn't).   >:D >:D

 :nono: Whilst I might seem helpful Scott, - in fact I have a cunning plan.  ;)

Ian will now have to spend so much time trying to find the search grid, as it's now not visible, he'll get so wound up all over again - and then in his anxious state he'll make other mistakes.  :D

You need to talk to your drinks supplier Ian, he's obviously watering down the liquor if todays total is not about half of last night's.  :P   :D

Of course Ian. You will have the answer to every question.

What do you think I am? Evil or something?  :DD

It has come to my attention that some of you think that I turn into a cold hearted monster each December.   :DntKnw:

The questions for the advent competition are designed to keep you on your toes and in some cases its probably the only thing keeping some of your brain cells active.  :DD

I do have a system. I run every question past Mrs Wiz before it goes 'live' and only the ones that make Mrs Wiz swear make the grade. I find it works perfectly.  :D

So, despite Mrs Wiz having the same opinion of me as most of you, I am going to make an exception and show some kindness and generosity in this festive season.

CLICK HERE (http://www.gpwizard.co.uk/index.php?pid=40) for the clue to the final advent phrase. This clue will be available from the top menu until the end of the competition.

You can all thank me later.  :crazy:

WTH???  What is a dingbat but a moron.  We don't know these silly games.  We (can I say we for my fellow North Americans?) play dangerous video games and at bars and pubs just drink, dance and fight (or play 8-ball).

Can you give us a hint, since this kind of game is so culturally unknown to us? 

I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it seems to be a Rebus type game, but they are generally with pictograms, not just letters and numbers.  This hint looks more like a Bingo call than anything else.

To many of us over here in the colonies, a dingbat will always be the lady in this picture. I'll bet that Lonny & Dare had the same thought when they read the word dingbat.

Wiz has really gone for the brain batterer with this one, think I'll give Prof Stephen Hawking a ring.

Brilliant! It's great to see you all so keen about the advent competition!  :DD

OK here is a clue by way of a another Dingbat:

TRLANOSLSATITON

Answer is Lost in Translation

Apply the same 'say what you see' scenario to today's clue.

So far I have had two correct answers.  :good:

I will be waiting for several more hours due to time zones before closing the competition. I will announce the winner and post the answers for all to see ASAP. Please remember it is Christmas so give me a little time.

The answer to the 2012 Advent Competition is 'God Rest You Merry Gentlemen'

I had two correct answers but the first out of the sorting hat was PG_Gabriel so please join me in congratulating him on a brain numbing effort.

You may be wondering how on earth did he come up with that answer? Where is the K from day 7?  :DD

You check out all the answers here (http://www.gpwizard.co.uk/index.php?pid=71) I have also placed a link at the top menu for the next week so you can keep looking at the questions and answers that made your 2012 Christmas so delightful.  :D

Thanks for playing everyone, as always you make this a fun site to run.  :good:
