Update: Congrats to Hughjeee, our first winner!  I have reset all the clues to reflect a newly picked zone!
Update 2: Congrats to our second winner, Gokulot!  I reset all the clues again, this one will be a little tougher I think :).
Update 3: Congrats to Rhylee, our third winner!  Clues are all reset, and difficulty increased I hope :p
Update 4: Congrats to our fourth winner, kirkisx!  Clues reset, good luck!
Update 5: Grats to Tadenea, our fifth winner!  New zone picked, clues are reset!
Update 6: Congrats to our sixth winner, Edrick!  Clues are reset, good luck all!



The Contest -

We have picked a zone in EverQuest, and you guys get to try to guess the zone we picked!  You can find clues on the EQResource website while you do your normal browsing.  Each time you load a page on EQResource, there is a chance you will have a clue displayed on the page.  Some clues are rarer than others, so you may get the same clue multiple times.  If the zone is guessed before the contest ends, we will pick another and reset the clues!

Here is a sample of what a clue looks like, if you are lucky enough to stumble upon one (click image for larger view):

The Rules -


 - The contest officially runs from August 22nd - September 14th.
 - To get hints, simply browse the EQResource website and pay close attention to the top of each page!
 - Hints that appear on pages are clearly marked "Contest Clue:" and link back to this thread.
 - You can share hints you find on this thread, with your friends, or you can keep them a secret!
 - To make a guess, simply post your guess on this thread!
 - If you make a guess, it must be clear that you have intended for it to count as your daily guess.  You should word it something like "my guess for the day is Qeynos".  You should NOT word it like "I'm thinking Qeynos maybe".
 - You get 1 guess per day.  The day ends at 11:59pm Pacific Time.
 - You can only win 1 reward from this contest.


The Rewards -


Whoever is the first to correctly guess the zone we picked will receive their choice of the following:

My guess, West Freeport must be the zone as The Arcane Fair expedition is probably the circus from the contest clue, "The circus must be in town!"

The Princess is in another Castle!
Their old home was ruined!

Felwithe was my guess too, but I got beaten. Nice job all around. The water, castle, their old home, and princess clues were the strongest ones.

Curious, what does the checkers/chess clue refer to?
