Yahoo Purple Hunt 2.0

Wednesday, March 23, 2011 jeffrey siy 0 Comments

It's purple season again which only means the second installment of the Yahoo Yahoo Purple Hunt 2.0 is here. This time around, they changed some rules to the game. On the first stage, you have to go to the Purple Hunt website and open 7 purple boxes which will only be opened by keywords found by performing various tasks both online and offline. You will only proceed to the next box once you have opened the box prior. Once all 7 boxes have been completed, you are now eligible to join the On-Ground Hunt event where you will have to again complete a set of tasks within a time period. All those who completed the tasks will be randomly drawn as the 20 finalists. From there, whoever has lady luck on his/her side will drive home a Purple Hyundai i10 Automatic. All those who joined the first stage will also get to gadgets and goodies from the sponsors.
