Egg Hunt update and a Mini-Challenge

MOO
Well, we're eggtremely sad to say the Online Egg Hunt and the hunt for Eggs in the Great Outdoors is finally over. Friday's winners are listed at the end of this post, and winners of the Outdoor Hunt will be notified in the next 3 days. There are, however still some Eggs hidden in orders making their way across the globe, so look out for them - and if you do get lucky, fill in your details on the Egg Hunt page, to claim your prize.

Don't forget there's still the Ultimate Egg Basket prize draw too! On April 21st, we'll select one overall winner from all the correct entries we've received, to win a basket full of upto $1000 worth of prizes.

Thanks to everyone for playing! We've really enjoyed your puzzling, your teaming up, your 'Eureka!' moments, and the fantastic little poems of Corvus, our wonderful clue-writer.



And, talking of poems, we've decided to have a Mini-Challenge.
Pen us a poem about Egg Hunting, clue-solving or MOO istself and post it in the comments below. We'll pick one winner on Friday afternoon to win a special prize. Go on - you know you want to!


We'll start the ball rolling with a couple of poems in honour of Corvus, The Cluewriter himself:

Here's Alicia's poem:

He came to us, an angel
Behold in golden hues

He stepped up to the challenge
To write for us some clues

With very little notice, and very little time
He produced within minutes, his first amazing rhyme

These poems were ever so beautiful, at writing he is adept
These poems took you all over the big wide internet

He helped you find our Eggies, he helped you crack the code
And for his work, forever, our gratitude he's owed

-----

And here is mine:

Corvus, thank you for the help
You gave us all at MOO
How could we do a hunt without you?
I really haven't a clue.

It's been great fun
We've enjoyed the ride
We're sad it had to end.
But one things for sure,
We know it's true,
MOO's got a brand new friend.


-----

Think you can do better? (I don't doubt it). Well - Get cracking!

aww. I must admit, it feels a bit weird, not getting clues and racing to blog before 11am :)

Morning! Fellow Moo-ers! Have you had your breakfast yet?
Orange juice, eggs, bacon, harsh brown, eggs.
Oops! Did I say egg twice?

I went everywhere, looking for these eggs, all 40 of them.
Shame on me! I only found 10.

Finding them all is not an easy job.
Understanding the clues is the key to winning.
No prize yet? No worry! Write a poem for the special prize!

ok it doesn't rhyme XD But at least... "Moo Is Fun" :P

Each morning with my breakfast I received a clue
While on the train I would think where I need be
In my excitement to find the colorful eggs of moo

At work I would sneak around to find the egg with my coffee brew
Though not very frequently were they found by me
In the afternoon again in excitement I would search until I knew

Eureka! Thank you moo!

You know what would be cool? If you made a post (here or the mooblog) where people can list the prizes they got if they'd like to exchange with something else. Maybe 2 people would like to trade codes that they got.

Just a thought. :)

do you have a flickr account? There's a bit of black-market trading going on right here:

If you are based in London, why do you say "$1000 worth of prizes"?

It doesn't rhyme, but I like it. :)

sorry, sorry, I couldn't help myself.

It's a tricky one this - we did it because we have so many American users. We do have the site in Pounds, Euros and dollars, according to where you are, but it seems dollars end up being a shorthand, when you want text to be readable in instances like this.

Everyone I know thinks you are an American company - it put off some friends of mine from buying from Moo because they thought postage would cost a lot.

Every morning when I wake
and before I take my break
to ready myself for work
I pause to take a look
in my journal, not the book
but the website that holds my thoughts.
On my friends page I find
Posted just at certain times
An eggish riddle to tease my skills.
So I take a little time
and I try to solve the rhyme
to find the morning Easter eggs.
Then again around lunch
I look again to find a hunch
of where the next egg might be.
Do I search to gain the prize,
or do I just wish to feel wise
to have solved the puzzle for the egg?
Either way I daily look
in every cranny and nook
to find the special eggs of the day.

There once was an egg hunt by Moo
I found some eggs-Did you?
Some were hidden online
Did you find them in time?
It was fun to decipher each clue.

Eggs were also hidden outside
But not near this city of mine
There was a fun map on flickr
And whoever found the eggs quicker
Won a fabulous prize.

Some eggs found their way into orders
Crossing oceans, rivers, and borders
To better your odds
You bought lots of Moo cards
Guess that makes you a Moo hoarder.

Now, sadly, the egg hunt is done
Congrats to all who won.
You'll hear us all cheer
If it comes back next year
Yes, it was that much fun.
