Competition: Score Yourself A... Blackberry Bold

BlackBerry_withPhone.jpgWell, we ever so subtly hinted at it, and now it's here. Thanks to FOX8's new action/game/reality/whatever-other-description-you-can-think-of program The Phone, we have 4 Blackberry Bold smartphones to give away, valued at $999. To enter, simply watch tonight's premiere of the The Phone on FOX8 at 8.30pm and answer this two part question;

  • What is the final clue to the first memory card (hint: you'll find it at the petrol station), and
  • Using the comments field below, tell us in 25 words or less what challenge you would make the contestants face if you were the 'Clue Master'.

Entries close January 21st at 5pm. Just a word of warning, though; the comp is also running on our sister sites Defamer and Giz. So to beat all those gossip and gadget-heads and win the high speed smartphone, with LCD screen, you'll need to be extra creative...

For a run through of what the Bold is all about, hit the link for a rundown by the techies over at Giz.

The Phone premieres 8.30pm tonight, on FOX8.

    My challenge would be to actually watch this show! Seriously it sounds bad and I'm sick of its constant peddling on this site.

    Couldn't agree more, this has been incredibly annoying all week both on here and on Giz, though it's worse here because the skin isn't even clearly clearly showing the silly fake posts as ads.

    Guys, sites like Kotaku need ads to survive. The hosting doesn't pay for itself, the writers don't pay themselves, and the Kotaku license doesn't pay for itself. If you find these these posts annoying then just skip over them. It's seriously not that hard. Suck it down, ladies.

    can u say sellout!?

    The pin code for the EFTPOS is the year that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone.

    "I think the contestants should be sent to a warehouse where they must defuse a bomb if it explodes so does the clue"

    Sorry but the way it's phrased with the petrol station has thrown me off... I've answered accordingly to the petrol station thing.

    The pin code to the atm card was the year in which Alexander Graham Bell invented the lightbulb (1876).

    As for a challenge I would highly suggest setting up a sign on a rollercoaster ride which had the location to the next clue or address of the next memory card; and the contestants would have to continue riding the coaster until they successfully knew the location.

    1876 - Invention of telephone

    As clue master: I'd have them read a specified post on Kotatu for clues to the next memory card

    1876: I would get them to shovel poop from a pile at the zoo. From there they would find the number of a small plane parked at a local airport. The memory card would be hidden in the safety gear of the plane. Time limit applies to finding the plane and shovelling the poop.

    1876 - Invention of the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell

    As Clue Master - I would have the contestants drive to an allocated surburban area where they must retrieve 9 envelopes from different mailboxes down a street. Envelopes will be clearly marked with a number from 1 to 9 which will be important as they are needed to crack the final code for this challenge. Contestants will need to remember the house number as well as their corresponding envelope in which will tell it's order. There will be a lot of envelopes to sort out so it won't be easy. Once all nine envelopes have been retrieved they will need to translate the house numbers into letters using the 1=A, 2=B method. Once cracked the 9 letter word will reveal the location in which the next memory card clue is held.

    clue was the year the phone was invented (1876) and i'd make the contestants look for a tourist couple in front of opera house holding small australian flags (taking photos) then ask to look at the 8th(any number) photo taken on their camera leading them to the next clue.

    The final clue to the first memory card was the year Alexander Bell invented the telephone (1876).
