    The GBAtemp Scavenger Hunt



    S'up? I had some cash left over from the last compy so I thought "I'll put this towards a Wii U and some games". Then I remembered it wasn't my cash but our overlord, Costello's cash that he designated for the competition...SO HERE IS A SCAVENGER HUNT!!

    The prize is a Wine Red PAL DSi XL with a R4i Gold. Sure it's not the latest in Nintendo's line but it's one fine handheld that is excellent for homebrew and emulation and :yaynds: and unlike the PSP it has a massive library of games and a wealth of great homebrew that is still being made today.

    So a Scavenger Hunt...what you need to do?
    Between now and Friday I'll be putting out a 7 clues for things for you to find and then you'll need to listen to Tempcast 52 for the rest of the clues. All you have to do is find them and tell me what the things are that you need to find...as simple as that. It could be a picture, a ROM release, a member or even a meme. The searchbox could be a friend to you for this (lets face it a few of you could do with searchbox practice :ninja:) and also maybe our WIKI.

    This is open to ALL members as long as they are not ban evading (and we'll check damn it!) or can access the Podcast Staff area. Competition will end on September 6th at 8PM BST and entries will be needed to be in before then. The winner of this will be announced during Tempcast 53

    For those who don't know, the Tempcast is our official long running Podcast that is put out weekly. Click here for the most recent Podcast.


    Don't send any answers to me until you have heard the end of Tempcast 52.
    Any clue giving will lead to disqualification and if the staff see fit even something more serious.

    Randomly from all correct entries?

    Well obviously the person with the most correct answers will win, if there is more than one then it'll be random.

    Ah SHIT. Speaking from previous experience, whoever puts together these scavenger hunts is a cruel beast. :(

    Anyone else thinking this is merely cheap advertising for the Tempcast?

    It's the only result when entered...ok to make it easier GBA.


    I'd thought it would be nice to give an incentive for people to give it a try, besides £100 plus postage & packaging to anywhere in the world is hardly cheap.

    I'll admit it, I laughed.

    The new Tempcast is nothing like the old one though, so if people aren't checking it out based on the old one, give it a try. You might be surprised.

    I don't understand exactly. Do we find the answers to your clues, write them down, and then send them to you?
    The clues don't lead to other things?

    I'm with you, I found the first answer easily, but I don't see anything that it may lead to, apart from the answer itself being a clue...

    Scavenger hunts are fine, but what's more fulfilling than hunting the most dangerous game of all... man?

    PM me if you're game.
