Well, tomorrow is April Fools. As you probably know, every year Jagex pulls some kind of joke. Ranging from "dragon plates" to cabbage gods to fake Behind the Scenes to amusement parks. So what do you think they'll do this year?

Just today there was a newspost on the main page:

The rules for April's $10,000 prize draw are changing. Any player who is part of a clan on the 30th of April using the new clan system (coming on the 12th of April) will be entered into a prize draw. 10 players will be drawn on the 2nd of May and inbox messages will be sent to those lucky winners.

Prizes for 9 of the 10 January winners, and 7 from February have been sent and are on their way to you via Postie Pete!

Congratulations to the following:

January:

•John from South Australia
•Glenn from Florida, USA
•Chris from Pennsylvania, USA
•Anthony from New South Wales, Australia
•Cole from Ontario, Canada
•Holly from West Virginia, USA
•Mindaugas from Hertfordshire, UK
•Katarina from Kansas, USA
•Brian from North Carolina, USA
•1 more winner still to be found!
February:

•Janice from Pennsylvania, USA
•Humberto from Minnesota, USA
•Tudor from Ontario, Canada
•Zachary from California, USA
•Ryan from Arizona, USA
•Molly from Michigan, USA
•Jonathan from Virginia, USA
•3 more winners still to be found!
March:

•It could be you!
The March winners will be drawn on the 1st of April, so don't forget to check your inbox, you could be a winner!

For more details about the competition in April, click here.


I have a funny feeling everyone's going to get something in their inbox tomorrow...

Anyone else have speculations as to what we might see this April Fools?

I think Jagex will give their Sailing knock-off this year, although it would be a pretty late bandwagon jump.

pre-april fools warnings are really, really annoying & spoil the fun.

First they came to fishing
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

Then they came to the yews
and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

Then they came for the ores
and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

That's a really dirty trick to tell someone they've won $1,000 dollars <_<

Doesn't look like an April Fools. That's not Jagex style (and would be really boring).

How did you come to the conclusion that this has anything to do with April fools (even tho it says April 1st) all the draw winners are drawn the first day / next working day of the following month. :wall:

Not really sure if this is the joke. Obviously those people HAVE won their prizes for real. After all, it was announced as being true well before April was even mentioned. But you never know...

Exactly. It's supposed to be a surprise, not something everyone is ready for. It takes the fun out of it if you know immediately that it is for april fools.

This. I don't want to know about April Fools until the day of. Pointless thread is pointless.
