I just found my first piece, pretty fun stuff.

vote-for17vote-against

A bit of helpful advice for my fellow wootizens, if you miss one of the pieces fret not! You can go back through all the prior woot deals and you can still find the pieces under the dead deal pages! Look for ones with lots of comments!

[quote postid="5166041" user="Jason Toon"]Look for the word "TREASURE" in this space:

When you see it, click through to that sale's detail page, and look for the map fragment.

Put the map fragments together throughout the course of each day - there'll be one map on Tuesday and one on Wednesday.

I wish I had all this free time...........

I don't understand this, i found the pieces, but how are you supposed to be saving these. You cannot click on the map pieces to put them anywhere. Is this just a copy and paste thing into your own document to save them?........

@lstites0903: That's what I've been doing.. don't know if it's right, but I didn't see another way. I'm just not sure what the best method for assembly is.

vote-for7vote-against

@lstites0903: and @hodakaroadtoad
As of 9:30 AM EST there were three pieces. If you only found one, check again.

Once you find it, you have two or three choices. Either:
Take a screen shot and save it.
Print the window screen area, cut it out with scissors! ??
Or, right-click the image and select the Save As ... option.

How you choose to join the images is up to you and your favorite image manipulator. If you have something that has layers and smart select, you are a Seasoned Seaman.

@studerc: Where are the dead deals pages at?

vote-for3vote-against

Also, can anyone verify that all the known pieces are still where they found them? I've only found 2 and checked the usual suspects, as well as some of the not-so-usual suspects...

@supersox:

So....what @wootbot says in the corner is the map piece?

vote-for4vote-against

If you're running windows 7, just use paint to piece the map together. Go into the Select drop down menu and check the "Transparent Selection" line. This will allow you to piece them together and make the white background transparent.

there are four map pieces as of 12:53 p.m Eastern time.

vote-for7vote-against

5 Pieces now if you've missed it.

Yer thanks fer keepin' the watch! I just sailed into me home berth from ports a far, and now can catch up with the rest o' the crew. Much Arrr-preciated!

vote-for4vote-against

so once we finish collecting all the map pieces ... where do we go to claim a share of "the booty"?

vote-for5vote-against

Do you guys want to see the fully designed map? Maybe it will help one of you find some BOC treasure.
It's a blog post from the guy who actually designed the map. I accidentally stumbled on this site while 'Twittering around'.

@studerc: this just in.....I have a life

vote-for1vote-against

@bluekirbypwns: That helped me get my first BOC ever :) thank you

vote-for1vote-against

So the BOC was up, and is now sold out.

Lessons:
BOC are typically offered at the address www.woot.com/offers/______ Forget the offers part, and you're out of.. crap.

You don't have to wait until you have all of the information to start trying to get the BOC. This time, the Buccaneer was posted/live at or before 2pm central time.

The limit of BOC/person is 1/week. If you got one this time, you're out of the running for the rest of the week.

vote-for1vote-against

Wow....that's awesome. That's really effing awesome.

@mkentosh: Um, good job? I don't see where this is coming from. But I do congratulate you on your successes...
