Yeah, but I was hoping for something BOC related.

what if you get >20k score for each body part? you get a question mark man... maybe that gets you a BOC :)

Yep, I went through and bought all of the best upgrades (which have the BOC question mark on them). Sadly, I wasn't given a BOC. My robot is pretty sweet though.

This link is supposed to show my robot but it just pops up the game (). I'm guessing the 19s signify which upgrade you received for arms, legs, body, and head. Once the images start working I'm guessing you can check out different robots by inserting different numbers in place of the 19s.

According to the newsletter, they'll be giving away Crap on their Facebook page – where you have to a fan of course.

"All week on our Facebook page, we'll conduct lightning giveaways of the same kind of garbage that goes into the Bag o' Crap, one piece at a time."

@sportster25: You do not need to be a fan. I do not have an account and I have managed to get a previous offering on facebook.

@pattiq: I am a dumbhead - how do you manage that without being on Facebook?

@jjkehoe: You can view the Woot facebook page. When the boc is posted, it is a link you can click and be taken to a page to buy. They have sold out quickly in the past so you still have to get lucky to get one.

@pattiq: That method makes sense. It's of course easier to see the link posted if it pops up in your feed than randomly refreshing their Facebook page.
I was going off of this line from the newsletter, "Just remember: You gotta be a Facebook fan of ours to win…" but what you're saying definitely makes sense. Thanks for explaining

Well, I guess that safely means I'm not getting anymore BOCs.

Oh well.

@sportster25: I have not received the newsletter yet. I have only read the digest. Maybe the rules are different this time.

vote-for4vote-against

Yep, I can get 20k points on each level pretty consistently except for the "dark" level. I cap at about 15k. Any hints on how to score more on that one?

vote-for5vote-against

This is going to be different then a BOC, the "pieces of crap" from what I understand is going to be a free giveaway, no purchase necessary. It will be an offering of random junk around the warehouse of stuff they want to get rid of. Not sure if there will be an actual BOC for you to miss out on.

And here's the correct image for the full Borg Bot:

my game froze, had facebook open so I went over there & refreshed the page, the word "success" appeared & FB won't refresh. wtf?

vote-for2vote-against

No luck getting one playing the game here either. Me + 2 coworkers. What's the secret!?!

vote-for2vote-against

Yes, but I can't be bothered to play it right now.

The newsletter mentioned a BOC on tech.woot, but I took that to mean "Borg Of Crap" itself.
