    Day 2 - HotUKDeals Birthday celebrations - Literary Treasure Hunt

    HOW TO PLAY

    At 8pm, we will be posting a number of clues. Solving each clue will give you a word, and searching for this word on HotUKDeals will lead you to a smiley man holding a number, like the one below.

    bestsmileys.com/let…gifbestsmileys.com/let…gif

    Finding the letters in order will spell out a word - this is the solution to the competition. The first 50 people to hotukdeals.com/for…628 PM emmajk42 with the full solution in the title of their message , will win a £5 amazon voucher each.

    All the clues can be found in the “ Hot Deals ” forum by simply searching and a bit of hunting. It is recommended that you go to the hotukdeals.com/for…php advanced search function, and select “Hot Deals” in the bottom right search box, “Search in forum”. This will narrow down your hunt considerably. Type the cryptic clue answer in the keyword box (will never be more than a single word), click search and start looking for those smiley letters! The smileys will all be posted in threads no older than one year.

    ______________

    Here's an example, which you can test out right now if you like.

    Clue: (The opposite of white) + (a snake)

    Answer = Blackadder

    Searching for Blackadder in the Hot Deals forum only gives you a few hits, and a quick trawl through the posts should lead you to hotukdeals.com/for…258 this thread , showing a letter.

    Sounds great

    oooh exciting!

    Seems like quite a bit of effort has gone into setting this one up, what with going back and editing a bunch of your old posts Emma :thumbsup:

    If im still here, im in xD!

    I missed the other competition, so I will have to try hard for this one!

    Good Luck everyone!

    Will we be told how many letters the answer is?

    2 quick questions....the 'answer' we PM you is simply the 4 letter word? We don't need to incluse the urls of the threads, the answers to the clues etc?

    and if someone PMs you a guess before all four clues are revealed & they happen to get it right (aka after clue 3 and the letters are 'L O V' so they guess the 4th letter will be and 'E' for love before clue 4 is posted) will that count, or do they only count after all 4 clues are given?

    I'm asssuming that all the clues will be given out in one go at the top of this thread (or most likely the second post down) but will wait until it's confirmed one way or another

    Will the clues be in order? So like the letter from the first clue will be the starting letter of the word?

    Is it a proper word in the english language?
