Ourstock Oobie Antics Event
Are you ready for a fun and challenging Ourstock event silly enough to give you the giggles? You’ll need an Ourstock Oobie prop to wear and a whole lot of determination and patience to win this game. The shenanigans begin Thursday, November 17th at 5:00 PM PST/8:00 PM EST.
Once you’ve got your bear suit on, enter the red elevator that will take you up to the platform. Step out onto the rickety platform and gain your balance. You must successfully walk, run and jump over the obstacles stacked along the narrow pathway. Watch out for the bubble trap in the middle…you’ll never escape! You must complete your journey over the beam and through the obstacles all the way to the chair on the bell tower in order to be included in the dice roll. Avies are not allowed to save spots to teleport back to if they fall off. You will be disqualified if you cheat. You must start over at the elevator entrance if you lose your balance. You can attempt the crossing as many times as you like during the duration of the event. Pushing, shoving and jumping are all allowed as it is every BEAR for himself!
The prize for first and second place is $13,500 Tbux or a special 2016 Ourstock ZMW buggy. First place gets to choose the Tbux or vehicle prize. Sign up early to get to the event as there will be a lot of avies dressed up like bears pushing and shoving their way to first place.
