There are a few rules and caveats to this game that will take some effort to understand.  Please take the time to READ THIS POST CAREFULLY before playing.  Any questions, hit the discussion thread.

There are 400 numbered Christmas Presents sitting in a room and your fellow troopers are hiding in them.  Find them!

OBJECT
There are two objectives to this game and each comes with a $10 prize. #1: Be the last person still hiding at the end of the game. #2: Find the most hiding spots of other people during the course of this game.  It is possible for there to be a tie in either objective which would result in splitting of the prize money.  Either way, $20 will be given away!

HOW TO PLAY
The moderators for this game are Nikkums and Treasure.  At any given time (usually once per day), we will announce the beginning of a new Treasure Seek round.  Once we have announced the round, everybody that is still hiding may make 1 post during that round at any time.  Your post must be in this format:

OPEN PRESENT : 250

The number represents your guess for that round.  If your guess uncovers another Trooper or more (yes there may be more then one hiding in the same Christmas Present) you will get a point and that person will be eliminated from the game.  It is up to you to keep track of which numbers have already been guessed.  Seeking a number that has already been named will only result in you wasting your turn for that round.  If your post has been edited, your guess will not count.

POWER-UPS
It is possible to earn power-ups in this game.  To activate a power-up, you must post in the thread at any time in the following format:

POWER-UP : HOHOHO (HOHOHO : #)
or
POWER-UP : SNOW FORT
or
POWER-UP : SLEUTHING ELF (USERNAME)

The three available power-ups are as follows:

HOHOHO : Complete 3 survey seekers in a day and get one FREE open.  It must be used during the same day that it is earned and it must be immediately followed by your free open. You may use more than one of these powerups in one round.  If you attempt to use this power-up and you have not actually earned it... YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED

SNOW FORT : Complete 10 offers in a day and get immunity from elimination. It must be used during the same day that it is earned.  Once activated, the player earns a snow fort for the current round and the next 2 that protect them from being eliminated. You may not use it if you see that your number has already been picked.  The snow fort must be up beforehand. If their number is chosen, the snow fort is removed and the players are notified that one of the last rounds guesses were correct but the player was saved from elimination. All of those numbers should then be considered as potential hiding places for that player!  If you attempt to use this power-up and you have not actually earned it... YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED

SLEUTHING ELF : Complete any 5 Study Storms in a day to use this power-up.  It must be used during the same day that it is earned.  Be sure to include the name of the person you are sleuthing on. Through careful study and observation, you are able to help everybody determine which 100 presents that person is hiding in.  If the same person is peeped on a second time it will be narrowed down to 50 and a third and final time will narrow it down to 25! You may use more than one of these powerups in one round. If you attempt to use this power-up and you have not actually earned it... YOU WILL BE ELIMINATED

TRAPS AND TREASURES
There may be Traps and Treasures hidden in specific presents as well.  Treasures may be power-ups or virtual currency for use on TreasureTrooper (scales, gold coins, pearls, etc).  The potential traps are as follows:

WORST PRESENT EVER : You open the present and find a Jack in the Box!  You wind it slowly with anticipation.  Suddenly, the music stops and a boxing glove springs out punching you in the face.  You are knocked out and will be unable to participate during the next round!
GLITTER BOMB : You open a present and an explosion of glitter erupts, covering you from head to toe. As you run back to your hiding spot, you leave a trail of glitter making it easier for others to find where you are hiding.  Everybody is told which 100 presents you are hiding in: (example: Treasure is hiding somewhere in presents 100-199!).  Get hit with another Glitter Bomb, and your position will be further triangulated.
GRINCH BOMB : When this is activated, money will fall from the sky and you will have a choice to make.  If you are the first one to post GRINCH! you will get the money.  Anybody who posts GRINCH! (even if you aren't the first) is leaving their hiding place to make a grab for the money.  In the process, your hiding place is revealed and you are eliminated!

ELIMINATION
If somebody correctly opens the present where you are hiding, you will be eliminated! If you post anything other than what is detailed above, you will be eliminated!  If you attempt to guess more than once in a round without the appropriate power-up, you will be eliminated!  If you attempt to use a power-up you did not earn, you will be eliminated!  If you look at me funny, you will be.... well just don't look at me funny. :P Good luck everybody!

Disclaimer: If you do not actively participate in at least 5 rounds by the time only one active participant is left, you will evacuate your present to be disqualified for inactivity and ineligible to win. Active participation will only be counted towarded valid posts within the rules.
