Just to mention, if you have a Twitter, I will be posting updates on new Trading Cards as well as the full list of letters (once all are found) on my account. So if you're lazy and don't want to waste your last few days on Earth watching www.woot.com, just follow me and we can be friends when the world ends. :)

It appears Woots image store doesn't automatically update URLs. Here is the link to the actual hosted image that will update as the time goes on:

dl.dropbox.com/u/20117472/Woot-Cards/Woot-Cards . png

You will have to copy/paste the URL and get rid of the spaces before and after the " . " If I make it a link, it will get locked, same as the original message.

Maybe I can enlist @inkycatz to make the image in my original post just a URL link instead of the picture. :)

Dang, I love these things. And no bag at the end! It's all for the pure joy of the woot, and maybe a t-shirt.

vote-for8vote-against

My guess is it is probably going to be something like shirts.woot.com/offers/woot-a-geddon or something similar

vote-for8vote-against

I'll check in later. Not for the trading cards - just to say hi to all of you wonderful people.

vote-for8vote-against

If it is indeed "Monkeygeddon" then we just need.

Should be easy enough to remember for some of you.

My guess is "WorldWontEnd" as that is in the title of the NASA link.

Behold... the disappointment.

vote-for4vote-against

Any thoughts on why there is a 62 on the one card? It would make more sense if it were between 1 and 12, right? right?

vote-for4vote-against

@j5 Saw the following in another forum that goes along with your theory:

"monkeygeddon it is. Additionally this explains the differences in the pictures. The monkey (icon in the bottom right of each card) for the letters in MONKEY and the explosion for the "word" GEDDON."

Make a lot of sense to me and seems to go along with how things look now. This will also fill all 12 letters.

vote-for4vote-against

Just so you know, you're not alone in puzzling this out! There are folks on www.woot working hard too.

vote-for4vote-against

@j5: One does not simply MEASURE lurkers!

It's hard to say -- there may be less folks there, but more active ones here. Or vice versa. Mostly, I just don't want anyone to miss out on a clue when there's more than one resource.

The shirt will be available when the last card is revealed; something we learned from the pirate event.

Nope. Its finals week and things are crazy up in this library! I hope I'm not missing too much good stuff.

vote-for3vote-against

Whelp, there goes my genius idea.

vote-for3vote-against

@j5: Last card. Surely, they wouldn't let that happen again, right?

vote-for3vote-against

theory:
two words
1st word defined by the monkey symbol
2nd word defined by the new-cue-lar symbol

Wootmageddon remains in the running....

It certainly looks like the numbers in the upper right suggest the letter placement. If so, then M is the first letter, N is the last letter, and O is the ninth letter.

At first I thought that perhaps D would be both the 6th and 2nd letter but it won't work when you apply that rule to both the D card and the E card (which would make the 3rd and 5th letters E)

Right now I'm at a loss as to the placement of E and D in the word.

vote-for2vote-against

@j5: I like that theory - that would allow two uses of the numbers that don't otherwise work if it's one word -- either (1) each digit could reflect letter placement of the highlighted letter in the particular word (either monkey or wootbomb), or (2) the sum total of the digits could reflect letter placement.

EDIT -- After looking at the "in the chaos, a friend" card it's obviously that idea (1) above doesn't work. Both letter #1 and letter #2 are not going to be N.

vote-for2vote-against

@dns12999: always a possibility, but I think the woot staff fancies themselves as clever and I think they would view it as too boring to do it that way.
