I work for GameStop, so I wanted to make sure you'd all heard about our top secret Black Ops contest.

Alright, so it's not so top secret anymore, but that's neither here nor there...

Check out the site - half the fun is finding the hidden prizes yourself, so I won't tell you any more... except that a new mission unlocks every few days and the one coming next week is particularly awesome.

Like I said, I work for GameStop (as you probably guessed from my username) so let me know if you have any questions.

That's a bit much work for a $10 t-shirt imo, thanks anyway gamestop. Hopefully the prizes get a little sweeter next week. I found 2 codes and they were already claimed, I'll check it next week since you make it sound like prizes may be better.

Feel free to add me, CAGs. Could always use another bud to play something with.

You have to zoom in, almost to maximum and look for them. I personally wouldn't bother with the current picture. Another will be posted at 12 noon CST, my guess is most codes were claimed off the current image, well unless you have a lot of time to kill.

Yes, it's 25 $10 shirts for each of the 4 images, total of 100 shirts for the current contest.

According to the rules, it's a T-shirt worth $10. That's the only prize.

You guys should keep this contest a secret. It's absolutely horrible.

Yup, what's with the image game anyway?
Its so retarded, you either have to be very lucky to find a code, or be VERY bored...

The codes are hidden deep within the landscape picture. Like full zoom and if you look hard it enough you'll find a random 6-digit code on like a tree or a rock.

Thanks for fixing my link. If the codes you find have all been claimed, just check back later. A new picture with all new codes unlocks every day.

And if you're hoping for different prizes, you're in luck. I can't say too much about it, but the mission unlocking next week is a big one...

AWESOME, found a code but the page crashed soon after it told me I found a new code, I didn't see the rest of the text but I did catch something about a confirmation email. What else am I missing from the text? I hope I still get the email!:pray:

Both my friend and I just found codes and they were valid.

We both took screens of our codes. These things are basically scribbles in ridiculously hard to find areas. All the obvious ones that are typed out on the sides of roads and whatnot are all used.
