After discussing the proposal to extend this game to a black-out, we the 'puppet masters' think that's a great idea.

So after "double cross' is done, the draws will continue until the first complete and correct full card is made.

BUT. (there is always a but)....

Sorry to say the Double Cross Winner will not be eligible for a prize on the Black-out, as most likely they will have a lot of correct squares, and will have had those squares validated from the Double Cross Game.

Which brings us to the 2nd 'but'.
A player who calls a black-out has one and only one chance to call the game. Your card is correct or not. No feedback. So the first person to get the locations as I intended will be the winner. Looking at the current guesses I'd say that people are getting into my head (or sharing maybe?) and coming up with the right places.

Good Luck!

That is not nasty! 2 Google queries and it will be obvious! Smile That probably just confused you more, but once you get their you will go 'duh' . Smile

obvious you say...

that's like seeing dozens of "quick easy finds" logged on a cache you just spent 2 freaking hours NOT finding....

Ive tried several google queries. A handful of yahoo ones & wikipedia ones too... I'm going to try the beer induction technique tonight to see if that helps! LOL

Yeh, I think I was on a few beers by the time I made up those ones!

Actually I'm quite impressed with the puzzle solving abilities our our members. At first a few were 'what the heck' but over time I think the players have gotten the idea of what I was trying to achieve. Though the one non too famous place I added was because my wife is from there. It somewhat known, but not in pop culture like most of these places.

Any guesses what one (without giving it away please).

Thank you for continuing the game, we love it!
Just a question, if you call Bingo for double cross and you are wrong and another person wins, can you still play the black out?

I love the "Has dabbed a square!" thing. The only problem is that I can't see anything else on my computer screen now that I have "dabbed" my bingo card. Jester

Yes I am blond going slightly grey Laughing

Ya know, at first I thought you were reporting a bug, then I got it. Yeh I was having a blonde moment too! Lets hope the ink spots are on an old CRT monitor and you will be getting a nice 22" LCD for Christmas!

"A single draw will happen every four hours."

I believe they start at midnight each day.

If you follow BCGeocaching on twitter, you can figure out the schedule,
but its every four hours @ 2,6,10,14,18,22 hours.
Not so say I might throw in a Christmas Bonus Draw now and then.

I opened up your images to perform a diagnostic, and saw nothing but dots on my screen when I tried to google the solution. I think I caught a virus from you.

Just checked, there is still 1 question that has not been drawn on any square, which after so many draws is quite surprising.

You mean G5? LOL.. Lots of people got that, and correctly too. You'll kick yourself when you see how simple that one is. Now I hope you don't stay up all night thinking about it!

This game was way more fun when I was actually getting squares to work on.... Sad It seems like it's been forever that ive been stuck with the same sad looking card staring back at me. Oh wel;, thems the breaks I guess.

The many times reviewing no changes got me to thinking, is there any magical way to get a notification that you have a new puzzle square available?

?

No. Only general announcement of a draw, but not what matches your card. On Twitter. (http://twitter.com/BCGeocaching) Hosting does not like tons of email gong out, they have shut us down before on that matter as they though we were spamming, though I had to explain it was all members who actually asked for emails, but they refused to listen. Guess it's more about band-width than spamming.

So there are 75 balls in a BINGO game.... some games have up to 90 balls... seeing as we are at draw 93 I am curious how many draws one can expect? Not that I have had a draw come up in the last 1o or so Sad

Really enjoying the game... when we can "play" that is Smile
