Red Team Halloween Pumpkin Hunt

RedTeamPumpkinHuntxASUS_Banner_1.JPG

 

Hello Red Team!

Who’s up for a little Halloween challenge?

If you’ve checked out our recent newsletter, you’ll know we had something in store for you all, and we’re excited to share that we’ll be hosting a virtual challenge we're calling the Red Team Pumpkin Hunt* for Halloween! Starting at 12:00 pm CST on Monday, Oct. 31, 2022, you have 24 hours to find a few “hidden pumpkins” (i.e. easter eggs) scattered throughout the Red Team Community page (RTCP). Finding them may be easy once you realize how they’re hidden – but solving (hint: answering) the puzzles won’t be a breeze!

And what's a challenge without a prize? Our awesome friends at ASUS have teamed up with us yet again and have kindly offered an ASUS TUF Gaming LC 240 ARGB all-in-one Liquid CPU Cooler and an ASUS TUF Gaming GT501 Mid-Tower Case to the lucky winner!

 

Here's how it works:

1.) You will have 24 hours to find the “hidden pumpkins” on the RTCP.

2.) To find the pumpkins, you’ll need to sweep through the RTCP and hover your mouse cursor over anything conspicuous. You’ll know when you find one! (For mobile, you’ll have to tap.) 

3.) Finding all the pumpkins will unveil something, and it’s up to you to piece together what it all means!

4.) To officially enter the contest, figure out what the pumpkins represent, solve them, and then send an email to community.moderator@amd.com with your answers.  

5.) The winner will be randomly selected from all eligible entries on Nov. 2, 2022.

NOTE: All the answers can be found on various pages on AMD.com!

 

Please don’t share your answers with anyone! Let’s keep the tricks out of this even if it IS Halloween. 😊

We look forward to the fun on Oct. 31st, Red Team!

*NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States (D.C.) and Canada (excluding the province of Quebec), 18 years or older, and members of the AMD Community Forum.

Thank you all again for playing, and we hope you all had a good time putting all the pieces together and answering the questions we had for you all. Also, a big shout out to our awesome partners at ASUS for collaborating with us on this!

We noticed the last question was the common decider in the qualifying entries (remember, you had to get all the questions right for your entry to count), and you can find the official answers below:

To confirm as a member of AMD community forum, contest is not open to international areas like South Africa?

Unfortunately not as is outlined in the disclaimer. You must meet all criteria, including being a legal resident of US/Canada. On the bright side, even though you’re not eligible for an entry, you can still have a fun time trying to solve the challenge puzzle!

Its NOT in the rules so I feel this must be asked!!  

Is it safe to assume that none of the hunted pumpkins will be harmed during this event?? 🙂 

Anyone who has ever seen me around a pumpkin pie knows what a hypocrite I am for even writing that in jest!! 

Happy Hunting & HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!  Parents of trick or treating children PLEASE have your children check their candy for safety BEFORE YOU start eating all of it.  🙂

 

 

These virtual pumpkins are A-OK!

Congratulations @neon.

I sporadically searched for 2-3 hours and never did find a pumpkin.  

Enjoy your prizes
