Guess How Many Candy Canes Fit In Finn’s Backpack To Win Some Totally Mathematical Adventure Time Prizes!



Adventure Time‘s Finn might be sort of bad at math, but his green backpack can sure hold a lot of stuff. In honor of this week’s release of  Adventure Time: Finn the Human on DVD—which comes with just such an awesome backpack included, of course—we want you to help us figure out how many candy canes Finn would be able to carry around with him, and we got hella radical prizes for you if you guess correctly!

Here’s how to enter: First, you have to be following us on Twitter. Otherwise, we can’t direct message you to let you know if you won, and nobody wants that. Next, tweet the following sentence, and JUST this sentence, including the link:

I bet Finn’s backpack can hold, like, XXX candy canes in it for a #TotallyMathematicalAdventureTime.

See that part where there’re all those X’s? Replace ’em with the number of candy canes you actually think fit into the backpack. If you don’t guess a number, you don’t get to win! A hint: it’s more than 1, but less than 1000.

All entries must be received by Monday, December 1st at 12pm noon EST, and whoever guesses correctly will be eligible to win a copy of the Adventure Time: Finn the Human DVD; the Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdom game for the Nintendo 3Ds; the Adventure Time Edition of Munchkin; and the book Adventure Time Crafts from Potter Craft. Two runners-up will also receive a copy of the Finn the Human DVD as well. 

Unfortunately the contest is available to residents of the US and Canada only, but if you’re able to have your prize shipped to someone in either country who will then ship it to you, be our guest!

Note: If there are multiple people who guess correctly, we’ll select our winners randomly from each smaller subset. If no one gets it right, we’ll instead go by the closest to the actual number without going over.

So let’s get a better look at what you’re playing for, friends! Both the grand prize winner and two runners-up will receive a copy of the Adventure Time: Finn the Human DVD, which is on sale right now:
