This is a SIMPLE card submission game. You will state three splinterlands cards names with the order you choose and needed info along with each card to me at discord to unlock the safe. Inside the safe waiting for you is Zaku, Valnamor, and a gold alpha clay golem! You win those cards and more if you have the right combination.

Discord Link: https://discord.gg/Sc54HPZ

Currently, you only get one guess for this round. You will present your guess along with your splinterlands username at the discord channel at cardauctionz labeled #crypticclues and I will delete it if you're wrong or you can use direct message. There is no cost to play but you must have in your possession the cards you are guessing that have been purchased from the cardauctionz market or auction in accordance to your guess. This means a market card guess requires the possession of the card bought by you from the cardauctionz market. An auction card guess has to be in your possession and it will have had to be won from the auctions by you. It would seem that auction cards suddenly have more value! I will verify your possession. (See below for an example submission)

Is 75.00 and fun not enough? Don't worry we'll keep adding to the prize till someone wins!

Cards that will be in the winning combination will all cost less than .25

You have to have the exact cards in the exact order and stated from the auction or the store. Let me show you an example submission:

You will only be told if you have the exact combination.

All of the cards will be level 1.

To help you along I will be giving clues hidden just about anywhere. Here are places that clues will appear but not limited to:
Twitch:

https://discord.gg/Sc54HPZ
we might even put a clue on the cardauctionz site somewhere

If the rules are unclear in any way please let me know. The secret answer or combination will have been sent by email to my most trusted friend so there is a record and he will make sure everything is completely fair.

To give you an idea about how things will work and give you an actual clue it has been sent to my twitter account :)
It is the first clue!

Join us in the relentless pursuit of repurposing Splinterlands cards giving them MORE VALUE!
Cardauctionz

*MINOR CONSTEST: Minor clues will be designated with MINOR CLUE1 in front of the clue, it is a completely different single card combination win that has nothing to do with the main game. The purpose is to get more winners and get more excitement. In fact, I'll tell you that if you assemble all the clues and have the card. You can win it right now. Prize is an alpha gold clay golem.
Just like the main game there is only one guess per round allowed. Also, the card costs under .25
Here is the first clue on the minor and correctly formatted <"MINOR CLUE1
"I am a red card">

P.S. The email with the combination has been sent. The answer has been set. I will get it into a hidden key
that cannot be changed as soon as I figure that technology out.

This looks interesting and fun Marcus!

I just need to re-read it to understand it better.

Nice way to promote card auctionz!

Thanks so much for commenting!! :)

Good luck, everyone!

I don't know, Marcus.... feels like it's gonna cost a lot of newbies who are sensitive to gambling a lot of their precious cards they could be using to build their decks.

Maybe i just don't get it, and I'm wrong, but if enough people send in their cards, the house always wins
(I do get that's how gambling works, though- and the reason I'm not a fan of it)

Like i said, maybe my gut feeling about this is all wrong,and if so, i apologize. (Tbh, i didn't run the numbers). I don't want to be the negative nancy here, and by all means, feel free to let me know I'm completely wrong if I am (i truly hope I am).

One thing: would you mind dropping me a short note on discord once you've replied to this? I don't really spend time on chain. I only come here to check posts that have been linked in discord, and don't really follow up)

This little brainstorm of a game is designed to help promote cardauctionz market and auction use. It will also help open the lines of communication with our members. I hope it also provides a source of fun. Now to address your concern more specifically I see this as similar to an entrance fee in a tournament. X DEC entry cost may be a lot to anyone from a relative point of view and they would have to deal with an emotional defeat. If someone in any way feels like it might be emotionally upsetting to give up cards please don't play at all. I suppose I would say the same exact thing to someone considering a tournament if they couldn't handle the loss of DEC. This is a game of information and we might actually see people working together to come up with the solution. We compete against each other in ladder play and tournaments and cards aren't free. Hope all this very transparent. I also edited the price of cards to be up to 20.00(DEC cost) so that people do not try and game the system and use the simple process of elimination. I want it to be a game that uses the clues.

Good points, I admit. these wree things I really didn't consider.

However...

If someone in any way feels like it might be emotionally upsetting to give up cards please don't play at all.

Don't underestimate the number of people with a gambling addiction, lol.

But I get your points, and I think they are more than valid.
So, once again, I apologize for not thinking it through before I reacted.

Like I said: you do a whole lot for the community, and I really appreciate that.

Okay I think we are all good :)

I don't view this as gambling. Instead, I see it as a game of logic. You assemble the clues and make logical choices. Even trial and error is a form of logic. Just remember, buying a card and hoping it appreciates is a form of risk. However, I understand the way your brain is thinking.

I have removed a cost of cards from the contest. All that is now asked is to have purchased your desired guess from cardauctionz.

i love the idea of a virtual scavenger hunt. but how will you know if they got their cards from cardauctionz?

I rely on programmer for market. But, even I can handle if it comes from the auction by using the explorer right :)

Very nice event! I'm only worried about something. Is the order of the cards also suggested by the order of clues ? Otherwise if players guess properly the cards and acquire them, they would need luck to win right?
