    What a crazy contest! Thanks to all that participated on such short notice and made it so exciting! That was a close race![STRIKE]Ok 3reefers - it is time for another contest. :)
    The Royal Blue Contest Starts Now.[/STRIKE]

    We took a suit of cards (13 cards) and buried then in some of December's posts on the forum. Find a card and use the Report Post feature (shown below) to get points. First 3reefer to 100 points wins a sweet CREE-POWERED 455nm Royal Blue PAR38 LED lamp from new 3reef sponsor Ecoxotic! (BIG THANKS!! Much appreciated.)

    UPDATE - AFTER A MANIC DAY - THE CARD GAME IS OVER. CONGRATS TO tatted4ever for winning the 1st lamp! The 2nd lamp was won by patrick824! Nice work!



    FIND A CARD, REPORT IT BY PRESSING ICON IN POST SHOWN HERE:
    [​IMG]

    We will post a leader board with daily updates. And clues will be given as daily as well. Furthermore, another lamp can be won instantly by clicking the right banner here on 3reef!

    Card Values:

    5 points for 2-10 (all of these = 45 points)
    10 points for facecards (only 3 of these so = 30 points)
    25 points for royal blue ace

    that = 100 points

    So closest to 100 points (first) wins 1 lamp.

    A banner could win you the other instantly.


    Time limit:
    If we don't have winners by Christmas Eve, closest to 100 by then will win.


    BIG THANKS TO ECOXOTIC!

    Some specs on Ecoxotic's PAR38 LED LAMPS:

    Each lamp features 5 high power Cree LEDs with focusing lenses, allowing light to penetrate
    deeper in depth while producing stunning color and shimmer effects. Now you can deliver light
    into your aquarium only where needed, reducing wasted light and lowering your energy costs.

    will the cards only be in the Thread starters post or can they be in the replies also?
