Wouhou yeah!
I'm so glad I won the mime (3 heads for the price of 1, which actually in this case is zero€ :laugh:).
This hunt provided so much fun, my girlfriend got caught at the minute I read her the rules, and stayed on the site on advanced hours of the night, she who had never surfed on EB before!
I think it was a very well done treasure hunt, it had some good clues which needed a specific lego knowledge and THAT made it sooo gratifying when you found what you were looking for :cry_happy:.
Thank you Eb staff, you can be proud!

Yeah, if we do this again I'll probably host them myself; I have full control over the URL then and I have three domain names to play with! Some could even be hosted on the EB server. To be honest I don't consider this a major problem; someone would need to find at least two to establish a pattern, and we could stick in a few extra ones that don't match the clues to make things just a little bit harder.   :laugh:  Thanks for sharing your logic though.  :sweet:
Yes, I fully agree that it's not a major problem, and thus not worth spending a great deal of time to combat, especially considering that "I'd say you're the only person on the boards who could be bothered looking at that sort of a solution for it :P" (quoting another member of the staff) :laugh:

Cool - Ringmaster, thanks!  I've already expressed my appreciation for the contest, but no harm in repeating.  Thanks to the organisers, this was great fun - I looked forward to the next clue every day.  Can't wait for the next one!  :sweet:

Wow thats the second time in a few months that I am lucky enough to win some here on EB.
It was a great hunt with some nasty clues, but as said before, while searching you find out lots of interesting topics around the forum.
Well I am allready emptying a shelf for the weightlifter, one of the toughest to find , for me at least.

Thanks,
Jan

The Weightlifter just arrived here at my home in excellent condition.
To be sure, I leave him in quarantaine for just a while, and check him first for anabolic steroids and such.
I'm sure I will find a place for him in a future MOC.

Thanks, Jan

The Mime is home, he's alright.
Is it normal that two of his heads are sad, and the third is scared? I thought at least one head was supposed to be smiling.
Oh well, never complain about FREE LEGO :classic:

Err... It's not supposed to be normal. I must have mixed it earlier with the other batch. Apologies for the inconvenience caused. I hope you still enjoy and treasure your prize.  :blush:
