-400 POINT GIVEAWAY (EVERYONE WILL GET POINTS)-
*Next one begins 6/15/2014*
***Before I begin, I should say this is my fifth giveaway. This is truly a monthly thing. I understand that if you’ve already participated, you might not want to re-read everything. Just a reminder- If you don’t follow the rules you won’t get any points***
Do you want free points? Is entering contest after contest and waiting for weeks to hear about the results too tedious? DO YOU NOT WANT TO LEAVE YOUR LIFE UP TO FATE?!
Okay, well, that just sounded like an infomercial. But, seriously. I’ve been there and I think it kinda sucks. Now its my turn to be the one offering up free points, and I’m changing it up a bit. No ‘random number chooser’, no ‘100th watcher’. I am offering a chance for everyone participating to earn free points. What I ask in return? An answer. An answer to a monthly riddle (or two). If you can answer correctly, you WILL get points. It doesn’t matter if you are the first to answer, or if you are the 42nd.
Still not understanding? I’ll break it down- Every month, I will write riddles and hide them throughout my profile. They will be hidden in different ways, for example for Easter last year I hid Easter Eggs, and the time before I had a sort of treasure hunt. Most times I will have a story line, to make this giveaway a bit different from others. This is for those who want entertainment and humor, as opposed to just mindless faving and commenting. And, in return, you WILL get points, no matter what. If you enter, there is no way you cannot win.
How to enter
· Make sure you are watching me (So you can keep up to date with monthly riddles)
· Include in your comment below ‘I’m ready to solve the Riddle of the Sphinx’. I need to know that you read the rules.
· Tag at least three friends who you think might be interested. If everyone who enters gets free points, why not get your friends in on it?
(· If you fav this, no matter if you make it to the end or not, you enter the draw for 200 extra points!)
I have 600 to distribute. Now, this does NOT mean that everyone is going to get 600 . Heck no. I don’t have that many points. 200 will go to one lucky person who favs this, no matter if they made it to the end or not. The other 400 will be divided up amongst everyone else who makes it to the end.
40 people enter, each get 10 .
10 people enter, each get 40
As a one-time deal, I will up it to 800 points if we have more than 50 people. Get your friends involved, and there will be more points to divide up
· Don’t comment the answers in the comments, or you will be thrown out of the giveaway and will get no points
· Don’t comment any hints in the comments, or you will be thrown out of the giveaway
· You have three chances for hints, but use them wisely. I created these riddles to be fairly easy.
· If you are confused, feel free to note me! I will try to explain anything you might not understand
· When you have answered the final riddle, do as the instructions say and then wait. I cannot give everyone their points until I know how many people are in it. Complaining or noting me about it is unnecessary. No matter what, if you get to the end, you will receive points. I promise you this. (Last time everyone got points, although it was late… How about THEM apples?)
· Please be respectful
· Have fun!
Ready, Set… Go?
Please! Please, mortal, you must help me!
Oh, I’m sorry. I haven’t introduced myself. I am the Sphinx, and I put on these Giveaways to challenge the minds of you mortals and show that I am the superior creature. That has… Well, it has never worked, but I assure you, I will beat the human race someday! For now, I need your help.
My arch-nemesis, the Sorceress MoonehDraws, dragged me out to a human entertainment unit to have something she calls ‘fun’. There was music, rides, clowns, food…. All in all, it was terrifying. Anyways, when I originally heard her say ‘fun’, I thought she was talking about creating riddles, so I brought with me my riddles.
We were up on some sort of wheel of death and I was hanging in a metal death contraption when a wind blew along and took with it all my riddles. DO YOU UNDERSTAND, MORTAL?! MY RIDDLES ARE GONE!
When you find that picture, look for the blue letters. (
Like so) They are a link to another area, where you will find the riddles. You will be able to answer them and, if you answer correctly, you will collect a letter. I will know you have found ALL of my precious riddles if you can note me with the correct word.
This is almost a scavenger hunt, my kittens. I have faith in you to find all my riddles and return them to my possession. If you do, I will send you a note and you can join the ‘fun’ of this fair-like thing and get your reward.
In case your mortal brains did not comprehend- This is a type of scavenger hunt. Find the image and your find the riddle. Each time you solve a riddle you get a letter. Collect all 8, and you win!
Please, mortals. I need my riddles back. I BEG of you, please find them all. I dare not venture out into that fair again. The clowns scared me. I believe in you…. For now.
*8 riddles in all, a few false leads, and an EXTRA chance for 10 harder riddles... Four riddles on my page, four on Moonehs*
(Shoutout this time to , a group that gives out FREE points… If you’re fast enough. That's where I got my PM before it ended (like, today, so no more pretty journal after this DX) Since I’m an admin there, my ‘paycheck’ for helping out is what brings the extra 200 for the random person who favs this!)
