It has been too long since we had one of these so here goes!

As the title implies, there are two Gift Certificates up for grabs! Featuring two similar but different eye-soring events :D

The following are six images of a particular hood:

Game 1: Locate the turrets!
Within the hood there are 42 visibly seen Gatling turrets, meaning there are 8 hidden somewhere. Find the location of these turrets. (Answer must not be vague, has to be like "Behind so and so" or "to the right of building") First person to locate wins 1 x $20 iTunes Gift certificate.

Game 2: Bloody Lamp Posts!
A significantly harder challenge than previous, but quite simple for someone aware of hood dimensions. Basically, how many old lamp posts are there within the hood? (Answer must be absolute i.e. "101", NOT 100-110) If exact number is not guessed, the First person with the closest count will win 1 x $20 iTunes Gift certificate.

Rules and Tips:
- Event will last 1 day, and/or finishing either when someone(s) correctly guesses both games.
- One guess for each game for each person!
- "First" will be interpreted through priority of post number.
- NO reserving of post position. Instant disqualification if found done so.
- NO editing of posts or else that specific post will be disregarded.
- Hood is built on symmetry, places out of line-of-sight DO contain objects.
- For Game 2: My count is absolute! Of course i will recheck a few times.
- Prizes will be sent through email via iTunes Gift certificates.
- And of course: HAVE FUN! ;)

*Questions regarding any ambiguity of rules allowed.

Lamp posts = 314

I have not yet counted lamp posts myself, but I know there are a lot behind buildings. From first glance of above calculations, they are incorrect though.

Regarding Tony's post was in direct violation of rule:

NO editing of posts or else that specific post will be disregarded

I'm sorry, but rules were black and white, so I must disregard that post.

I will announce winner tomorrow, so guesses can keep coming.

It doesn't matter if some are behind buildings. What matters is whether you place lamps on the other side in the same way we observe on this side.

I would not overload lamps in unseen places... Coz that's just stupid.

Ok here we go...

Game 1: I believe the 8 gattling turrets are between the two rock cafes and the two Russian restaurants.

Game 2: there are exactly 369 lamp posts

The editing time shows no one is faster to get the same answer, so how does it matter? Come on, dont be stiff.
By the way, I was editing the" Gatling turrets " cause I used" gun " instead.

Tony 432847666
09-07-2012, 02:16 AM
If the rule can be void by something else, for example, the time shows on each post, why do you make such rule making it so complicated? Just my 2 cents. : )

Olly1
09-07-2012, 02:20 AM
263 lamp posts

Dravak

4 gatling guns behind the 2 hotels .
2 behind the gentlemen club
2 between the rockets and phone boxes .

Dravak
09-07-2012, 09:27 PM

Well it is fair no editing :p and anyway the turrets were wrong !
If anybody visit his hood zoom in the rocket you can a turret blastshield ,(well am doing it from my memory maybe he moved them)

Polar bear is good in his words for itune cards ..

I too give polarbear a round of applause for his generosity win or lose its fun to have things like these, although they should be coming from the game owners not players.

I believe it's the third or fourth time a forum member hosted this props to all of them.

I'm surprised more people didn't play.... Why not try to win 1 or 2 $20 gift cards to use for gold?!

Yeah major kudos to polar bear for this. It should be Funzio coming up with ideas like this. Big thanks, bear. You're keeping this forum fun

Ps I majorly messed up my post count :( should have taken more time on it

Polarbear
09-08-2012, 06:11 AM
Okay, after counting here are the results:

Game 1: Answer = Behind credit agency buildings
Tony: Behind credit agency buildings - WIN!
Ghost818^: Behind credit agency buildings
Lordsagacity: Surveillance Centre
Timbo Slice: Rock cafe/Russian restaurants
Olly1: Behind credit agency buildings
Dravak: Here and there...

Game 2: Count = 317 (Yes i checked section by section and moved buildings away as well!)
Tony: N/A*
Daniel2115: 196
Ghost: 314 - Win!
Lordsagacity: 311
Timbo Slice: 369
Olly1: 263
Dravak: 310

CONGRATS

*Tony, the reason you gave for editing was untrue, as you also edited in your Game 2 guess within that change. Forum logs are easily accessible if you want to dispute that. Although I do not like being misled, I still gave you credit for your raw entry (unedited post), but not for any post edited work. I believe this is the fairest resolution.

Winners please PM me a correct email address, and I'll send certificates over the following day or so.

Polarbear
09-08-2012, 06:12 AM
Oh and thanks everyone who participated! (Although i didn't think it out well!)

LOL, Timbo did you accidentally count a picture twice?!


Open to any suggestions for another forum event!

Great job polar. If you do another one of these are you going to have to re arrange your whole hood?!

Polarbear

Great job polar. If you do another one of these are you going to have to re arrange your whole hood?!

Thanks, probably not going to do anything with my hood anymore as I barely play the game now. And counting all those pixel sticks after a night out was a VERY bad headache!

I was thinking more along of the lines of...

First go get ALL your money buildings robbed (must have 25+ or so)

or

First to 50 Jets =D

Just noticed this thread now. Oops. It was very nice of you to do this event, polarbear.

Anyways... CCMark & Er -- TAKE NOTICE OF THIS!!
An event was held (actually 2 simulatiously) with complete/correct graphics and very clear instructions. All questions were answered promptly, & without creating further confusion. The threat of "cheating" of any sort was closely monitored & dealt with in a fair manner. And, winners were annouced just after the events ended. See, it really can be done.

Possible Misses:

3 Behind the French/Russian/Rock cafe.
2 Behind Hotel Subway, parallel to flags.

If you look fairly closely to top right corner of the front french restaurant, you might spot the tip of a lamp.

PS: Sorry, results were slightly altered due to a tipsy initial count! Hopefully changes were made before much happens.

Okay, I had forgotten I do not live in the US and therefore cannot buy US iTunes gift cards (Damn Apple!). But i have PM'd CCMark asking to transfer 2 x $20 gold packs (240 gold) if bought on my account.

Can I assume your codes are:
Tony: 730 838 977
Ghost: 484 796 729

Sorry, tried to not bring Gree into this! Unless someone knows a trick for international apple transactions...

No only sites who are troublesome , really a pain to get US itunes card , tried it too , to pay for mnju bet .
Seems it really is region bound, tried to get some trough Apple contacts netherlands , they had the same problem .
So either trough third party not trustworthy sites , ebay etc .. well smaller amount might be found on ebay .

Very cool hood man. I really like the set up. My hood is more using as much space for buildings and how I collect them is all in one place sorta. That is what I like. But I enjoy the decorations. Very cool.
