Last week we started the official SkepchickCON 2012 Psychic Challenge.
This week it continues with BOX #2!
In case you missed it, last week’s super-moon-powered winner, cybercedd had some extra psychic advice for us.
cybercedd on winning last weeks challenge:
As a lunar psychic, though, I was really bound to get it right on account of the SuperMoon. I should also let everyone know that there will be major celebrity relationship news before the next full moon and that the economy will probably do something, too.
Wow. There will be major celebrity relationship news. Just wow.
That is the kind of psychic advice people pay the BIG bucks for and we got it for free! This is the contest that just keeps on giving, ammirite!
And speaking of giving, we have given away our first prize. Cybercedd has chosen prize number 2. So that prize is no longer available but there are still THREE more prizes to pick from including a FREE pass to SkepchickCON at Convergence!
As for Cybercedd’s prize, he asked the drink be named after his real name and so Anne used her mixology magic, which is very similar to psychic powers and created, The Downey Sour Cocktail!
Anne has a full post on this drink complete with recipe and photos here on Mad Art Lab. Congrats again, Chris! And many thanks to Anne. I can’t wait to try the drink!
Prize 1: I will personally pay for someone’s pass to get in to Convergence/SkepchickCon! You have to get there and find somewhere to stay but I will pay your admission to the event!
Prize 2: A drink created and named after the winner for the Skepchick party created specially for you by our resident Mad Art Lab cocktail specialist, Anne Sauer! Recipe will be provided! And we will toast to you at the Skepchick party at SkepchicCON with you if you can make it or in honor of you if you can’t.
Prize 3: A four pack of surprise Surly-Ramics given to you at SkepchickCON if you can attend, or mailed to you if you can not. You can tell me if you prefer nature or science themes.
Prize 4: A Skepchick shirt signed by all the Skepchicks who attend SkepchickCON 2012. If you can attend we will give it to you there, if not we will mail it to you after the event.
Once again, here are the rules of play:
Each commenter is allowed a total of TWO guesses per secret box post per week.
I will post one box a week for four weeks.
That means YOU can guess two times per post per week. Guess more than that and even if you are spot on your guess will not count.
The first person to guess the contents of a box in the comment section gets to pick from the prize list above.
Once a prize is picked, it will be marked off the list. So winners can’t pick the same prize twice.
If no one guesses exactly what is in a particular box I will show the item to Rebecca and then together we will decide which guess is closest to the actual contents and give a prize to that commenter.
Winners will be announced in the comment sections of each post and in any follow-up posts.
I will give one hint each week.
I have sent a photo of what is in each box to an official, classified Skepchick for verification purposes. Then, I sealed the boxes. They will not be opened again until the contest is over.
When I said each box had only one item, I sorta lied. Or sorta forgot. Or maybe I passed out while typing and had a lovely nap on my keyboard about traveling to foreign lands with friends and eating candies called, “The Job.”
Eherm. Sorry. I am awake now.
This Weeks hint: This box has two of itself but can still be considered one thing.
I may give additional hints in the comments if your psychic talents prove to be weak. Use the Force, Luke. Use the force.
