Friday Afternoon’s clues – Get ready for the ‘Great Outdoors’

7th March 2008 by Alicia

It’s Friday afternoon! That’s exciting for two reasons – maybe even three. First up, of course, it’s nearly the weekend, and you can’t really complain about that… Second, the MOO Great Outdoors Egg Hunt starts tomorrow at 12.01am GMT! Yes, we’ve hidden Eggs all over the world – little stickers – and they could be hiding in a city near you.

Our team of global friends have hidden eggs everywhere from London to Montreal, Bordeaux to Oaxaca. Not to mention; Tokyo, Paris, Niagra Falls, Toronto, New York, Brighton, Glasgow, BC, Oslo, Barcelona, Brussels, Silicon Valley, Wellington, Oxford, Austin, Konstanz and San Francisco!

Hidden up trees, in bars, stuck to statues, on walls, by rivers, near bridges, at the theatre, crossing roads, out to dinner and at the pub, our eggs really have traveled the world. If we didn’t manage to get to a city near you, we’re really sorry – but we’ve tried *really* hard, let me assure you!

All you need to do is head over to the Flickr Egg Hunt Group, and click on the ‘Map’ link. The pink dots you see are the places Eggs are hidden – and if you scroll through the photos in the strip at the bottom, even more will appear. (Remember the group won’t open until the hunt begins at 12.01am tomorrow.)

Click on your nearest location, and a photo will pop up – which, if you zoom right in, will give you a very good idea of where the Egg might be. It’ll also give you an additional clue.

What next? Go find the Egg! Take a photo of you and it, and submit it via the form on the Egg Hunt page. Also include the name of its location, which you’ll find on each image on the Flickr map. Happy Hunting!

And the third reason to be cheerful that Friday afternoon has arrived? Well, more clues, of course! Please note – we’ll announce all the winners of Friday’s Eggs on Monday. You’ve worn us out a bit and we need a weekend off!

Now seeing as you found the last clues *so* easy, how about some pretty tricky clues to keep you going over the weekend…

Clue for Egg Twenty-One
Our Egg, he likes his bunnies.
He also like his books.
On our blog, he’s rather keen,
And he’s very fond of Halloween.
So it’s no wonder he’s back in time
Giving an old post a careful look.
And filling his shopping cart with ease.


Clue for Egg Twenty-Two

I Was An Alternate Island
I, found it impossible to stay cool and urbane.
She, knew who I was but did not know my name.
I, touched my lei and said,

  1. Zachary:

    Got 21! 22 is going to take a bit more thinking…

  2. jmb:

    Got #22 @ 17:15

    Pa`u hana!

  3. Jenn:

    I got #21. #22 might be blocked at work. =/

  4. Heather:

    gosh I thought I might be first, you guys are WAYY to fast, I was so hopeful! But I got #22.

  5. Morgan:

    I got 22… maybe I beat jmb??!

  6. Zachary:

    Erm, I have a bit of an embarrassing question… I misspelled my e-mail address for my entry for egg 21. What happens to that entry?

  7. Soo Yin:

    I got #22…that took ages to load, probably my lousy connection!

  8. Alicia:

    I’m so impressed that you are getting Egg 22! I thought that clue was really tough.

    @Zacahry, I’m afraid there’s no way of changing the entry in our database, but if you are one of our lucky winners, I’ll use the e-mail address that I think you’ve entered with a previous entry?

  9. Heather:

    I got a prize does that mean I was first? And 21 is stumping which seems silly since I got 22.

  10. Soo Yin:

    @Alicia: LOL, I found 22 easier than 21…I still can’t find it! =P

  11. Zachary:

    @Alicia Okay, thanks!

    I really have no idea for egg 22. :-/ Everything I try comes to a dead end. I guess I’ll wait for the clue and try again later.

  12. Soo Yin:

    By the way, the clue for #22 is the nicest so far! What a lovely short story…=)

  13. Lloyda:

    woohoo! i’m so happy i finally got to find both eggs (21 & 22)without help from other people! :)

  14. Heather:

    Zachary- you want a clue?

  15. ScarletJones:

    yay i got 21 and 22. too bad no prize though.

  16. Zachary:

    @Heather, yes a clue would be very nice! :-)

  17. Heather:

    Concentrate on Thank you.

  18. Zachary:

    Thanks for the hint Heather! I found it now. I should have found it sooner, considering that I watch it most every day…Doh!

  19. Vik:

    Am I the only one not seeing any pink dots on the Flickr map…?

  20. Anna Staggs:

    im lost for 22 but finally found 21

  21. Anna Staggs:

    meant i got 19 im having a bad day all around

  22. jmb:

    @Vik – I can see 3 in the UK, two inside London area, one Oxford …

  23. jmb:

    Scroll the photo strip – you won’t see dots if you’re zoomed in on a part of the map that doesn’t have any of those egg locations.

  24. Deb:

    I am totally clueless on 22. I have no idea at all where to even begin!

  25. Sebastian:

    Can we please have another hint for 22?

  26. Denise:

    @Sebastian, there’s a hint there now… it is a tough one this one. I’ll put more clues up tomorrow if it looks like you’ll need them.

  27. WonderMike:

    I found all but one of the SF Outdoor Eggs!!!

  28. Jon Moss:

    What a great idea! Excellent fun marketing :)
