Theatre Rusty Lake Gin Tonic ContestEdit

Duration April 20, 2016 — May 15, 2016
Description Players must visit the Rusty Lake Blog to be informed of a "new drink", a Gin Tonic. If this drink is made in Cube Escape: Theatre, it will indeed make you a gin tonic. This cocktail may be given to Bob, but there will be no effects until he leaves to go into the bathroom. Afterwards, there will be two extra notes on the pilsener coasters, but only one coaster will be of any use. It'll tell the player: "Play BADEGG on the piano". If B-A-D-E-G-G is played on the theatre's piano, Harvey will jump out of the hole where the Hand should be, and begin singing to the Woman's favorite song. Afterwards, a letter will be given to the player by the Hand. When the letter is clicked on, the player is re-directed to a page which enrolls them in the contest.
Notes If the gin tonic was made before the contest was officially announced, the link would instead lead to a separate webpage congratulating the player on finding the secret themselves.
