Giftsplosion 2012: Last Chance to Qualify for Final Three Gifts

December 17, 2012

by Andrew Haak


2012 GiftsGiftsplosion 2012 is in full swing! We’ve released all the gifts for the year and they’re now sitting in the catalog, beckoning you to do whatever it takes to win them (or spend some hard-earned Robux on them). This article rounds up all the gifts and offers some hints on how to qualify for the last three.

If you’re not familiar with the Giftsplosion, here’s a brief overview: throughout the month of December, we’ve been placing mystery gift boxes in the ROBLOX catalog and awarding them to users who either meet certain criteria or have the wit to crack their riddle. Eventually, they’ll open and reveal a new addition to your inventory of goods. While those who meet the criteria get the gifts for free, they also go on sale in the catalog for a limited time before opening.

Up for grabs

There are three gifts yet to be awarded to qualifying users. These will be awarded very soon, so follow the advice below today if you want to win one.

Lucky Gift of Sevens: “Own at least one limited item with serial number #7.” This is self-explanatory. Check out the collectible section of the catalog to find limited items. For each limited item sale, you can see the seller, cost and serial number, so be on the lookout for a #7.

Ticket to Ride Gift: “I choo- choo- choose to sell game passes!” You can read about our Game Pass feature in this blog article, then get started on creating (or promoting) your own. You’ll need to sell multiple Game Passes to win the Ticket to Ride Gift!

High Frequency Trading Gift: “Dealing with ferocity, trading with velocity!” In this case, high frequency means eight trades by tonight at 11:59 p.m. CT. Earning this gift shouldn’t be too difficult, especially with the new ability to balance trades with Robux. While you’re working through your trades, you can even increase the value of your ROBLOX inventory – gather tips for profitable trading in this two-part blog series.

Awarded, now on sale

Razzle Dazzle Hollywood Star Gift (on sale for 550 R$): Lights. Camera. Action. This gift was awarded to everyone who had a video thumbnail on one of their places by December 10th.

The Coolest Gift (on sale for 40,000 R$): The owners of 2012’s hottest places get one of the coolest gifts this holiday season. Awarded to the creators of 2012’s top 100 most visited places.

Festival Gift of Group Fundraising (on sale for 75 R$): Raising the roof for fundraisers. Alright. Alright. This gift was awarded to anyone who made an item for their group and sold at least one of them by December 11th.

Self-Referential Gift of Referring (on sale for 300 R$): Get the references. They’re not going to get themselves. This gift was awarded to everyone who received a referral bonus in the past 30 days for successfully getting a friend to join Builders Club as of December 11th.

It’s too late!

Newsletter PresentCommissioner’s Gift of Commissions (awarded): Do you have game? Do you sell gear? Did you do it more than 10 times? Great. This gift was awarded to all users who sold 10 or more gear items using the Add Gear to Game feature by December 9th.

ROBLOX Newshound Gift (opened): We gave the Newshound Gift to everyone who had a verified email address on file and opted in to receive email updates from ROBLOX by December 5th. Everyone who qualified received the gift and has already gotten an early present, as the box opened to reveal some new shades last week.

Good luck in the last stretch of Giftsplosion 2012.
