A cryptic clue to what’s coming soon…

15th June 2011 by Simon G

For those that follow us on Twitter or regularly read the MOO Blog you’ll know that we’re a busy bunch – releasing new and exciting features to your favourite products (like Rounded Corners on Business Cards), or enhancing the back-bone of the MOO website with upgrades to the Your Account section (like our recent Refer a Friend update). And, the end of June will be no different – we’ve got something big planned, but we can’t quite tell you about it… well, not just yet!

We’re truly excited about this new “thing”, and really can’t contain our excitement any longer, so over the next twelve days we’re going to be leaking some cryptic clues on this page. Each day we’ll release a new cryptic clue – revealing a secret message, announcing our news!

If you’d like to guess what our news is, please leave your comments on this blog post below. We’ll hold back all the comments until the news is announced, as to not spoil the guessing fun for everyone else.

UPDATE: So many of you have had fun guessing, we’ve changed our minds! We’re going to publish your guesses on a daily basis, giving you more chances to guess, and more chances to win some MOO prizes! If you correctly guess each individual word, you’ll have the chance to win a pack of 50 Business Cards or 100 MiniCards. We’ll randomly select a winner each day from all those that have submitted a correct answer. If you’re one of our lucky winners, we’ll send you an email with your prize.

And remember, the first person to correctly guess the entire sentence (all 17 words in sequence) correctly will win a £100 MOO Voucher! The winner of the £100 Voucher will be verified by Jovanna, MOO’s Graphic Designer – and creator of the cryptic illustration.

So, keep your eyes on our cryptic clue page and when you’ve figured out a word, or our entire secret message (word-for-word), make your guess below.

ANOTHER UPDATE: We have a winner! Before the final clues were announced on Friday morning, Rebecca Jones was the first person to guess the correct answer. Well done Rebecca! We don’t want to ruin everyone else’s guessing fun, so we’re going to hold back any correct answers in the comments until Friday afternoon (UK time). Oh, and remember – the daily prize winners will be receiving their prizes early next week, so keep your eyes on your inbox!

    Rounded corners on the mini cards…more font choices, more colour choices…okay, so it’s what I’d like to see…but maybe this is ‘on the cards’? :D

    B + Pig – p = Big
