Hello, i was thinking of hosting a scavenger hunt based game using ebay listings.
Before i actually start i felt i needed to explain the rules and structure of the game.

It is based on 'buy it now' auctions (no interference with auctions running) , where you have to find transformer(s) with a search criteria of name/colour/season/certain letters. e.g Colour (must have red and yellow) , Season = G1 ,transformer must have RDA in name

Since we are gonna have 100's of ebay links, we dont need that, we need honest item names/series and cost.

it will run on the Weekends , and i might need judges (or me) that will give the victory to the most creative (most unique cheapest. But you really win by listing the rarest transformers

It will really test your knowledge of transformers. I havent really setup the win condition and criteria, and i am open to feedback



It will start and finish on an allocated time
i hope you guys supoort my idea, because it is incredibly fun and really tested your t/f skills :) .
please Dont ignore this by not replying, please support my idea and i promise to make it enjoyable for all.


heres a sample quest.
Colour = must have the colour red on t/f
Red Season=Must appear on the G1 cartoon
letters =must have the letter M R M in the t/f name

Ok, I understand. I think. Couldn't we just say "i am thinking of a transformer, with the criteria that we state, and with in this price range" and the people trying to answer have to search ebay for the item. post up an item number and if the number is right, its the winers go

The transformer I am thinking of
Colour = Red/yellow
Season/toyline= Titanium
letters = R P in the t/f name

In this case it titanium Rodimus Prime, item number is 310029163591. We must also state what ebay to be looking at IE .com, .au, .ca.. and so on.

Now you guys search ebay look for a tf with them characteristics, and what ever you find post the item number i'll then search the number if its right, its your go.
