Scavenger Hunt Almost Over
Posted by Sketch at 11/4/2003 6:08 PM PST
A few weeks ago we announced The Great Halo Scavenger Hunt that was taking place over at We dontated a truck load of prizes for this cool contest in hopes that fans across the globe would scour the net searching for the hidden trinkets. Well, we're now a month into it and a mere 5 people have actually finished the hunt so far. We coughed up enough goodies for 28 winners but it looks as if much of that will go unclaimed. Despite numerous clues and updates, hunters haven't been able to reach the end of this puzzling contest. Alas the time has come to pull the plug and call it quits. Anyone who's still interested in winning prizes has until November 6 @ 6 PM UTC to find the trinkets.

Here's the full update from Louis Wu over at HBO:

Okay, I'm ready to call it a day. Or a month. Or whatever. On October 6th, we kicked off The Great Halo Scavenger Hunt, and with the help of a whole bunch of Halo-related websites and Bungie, we set up what we thought was a fun, thought-provoking contest. Seems like we went too far, though - even in the face of more and more blatant hints (to the point of giving away key parts of the puzzle), we STILL have had just 5 successful entries (not counting the instant win tokens). Bungie supplied enough schwag for 28 winners - but we're gonna leave some of that unclaimed, I'm guessing, because I'm putting a one-month deadline on the game. As of 6 pm UTC on November 6th (that's 1 pm Eastern Time on Thursday), we're declaring this contest over, and posting a full solution on the net. Any unclaimed prizes will remain with Bungie, probably for use with future contests. (Part of the reason to call it quits is that there are at least 2 other contests I know of, waiting in the wings for this one to end; there will be plenty of other opportunities to snag cool stuff, and maybe some of them will capture more imaginations than this one did.) You've got a bit over 48 hours to finish up, if you're still interested in taking home some of THESE prizes; as far as I know, at least half the trinkets have been posted in full view on our forum, so finishing up shouldn't be that hard, if you really want to finish up.

So you've got exactly 2 days to wrap this up. Check the HBO forums for vital clues and maybe you can snag one of the remaining prizes. Whatever is left will go back into our prize pool for future events.
