    Well it looks like fun...but sorry Jake as 150 points is the first level on the rewards and most missions are either 5 to 10 points. Might take a year or two before anyone could get to 150 points for a signed poster. Good idea and good luck, but looks like a lot of time for little reward.

    At the same time if you know of 3 B&M's in your area and the local 262 rep uses you as the referal you'd get a free box of cigars and still have 200 points left over. Thats not a bad deal at all. Im working on signing up my 7th, 8th, and 9th shops right now, wheres my Herf

    Re: 262 Underground

    Thanks for the feedback. Here is the thing, these are not all of the missions. These are just the initial round of missions. Missions and prizes will change over time. Several are coming out that will be simple with higher point values. Obviously if we made everything low we would be handing out prizes like candy at Halloween. We want people who want to get involved and stay involved.

    For all members there will be contests as well. Later this month we will be giving away some prizes for those who are signed up for doing nothing more then being a signed up member.

    I will re-evaluate the point system though and take your comments into serious consideration. After all we want you guys to get involved and if you feel the goals are unrealistic you won't so that defeats the purpose of it all.

    thanks for your honesty and keep your eye open for an update

    I talked to Clint and I am revamping the point system and prize points as well. We are also going to launch a contest for all who are signed up in the next week. Might be a few prize packs. I appreciate the feedback.

    that's how all these things are. I've joined several over the years for video games and other various things but it's always just too dam time consuming to get anything. I think 9/10 times I got nothing because all the [few] prizes were already claimed, the missions aren't rewarding enough for the time I'd have to put in, etc. On the other hand they almost always offer exclusive stuff specifically made to gain the energy of those enthusiasts to shoot for. Like the Herf w/ the owner(s) of 262. Pint glasses might be exclusive to this promo, etc. Surely more rewards will pop up.

    I'd really like to try the 262. though I wouldn't even know where to start searching to get my hands on a couple. I'd love to join w/ the intention of grabbing a few smokes since I really want to try some but given the community I'm in, lack of B&Ms and the time it would take just to get a 3 cigar sample pack it's probably not worth it. Because I'd imagine after these simple missions it's going to move into the Poster, sticker and spread the word initiative tagging stores and B&Ms spreading the word and possibly even forum posting spreading the word as well. Of course all the time I've been sitting around going crazy maybe I should give it a shot.

    as jsnake pointed out, they can't be too liberal though because then they'd be handing out candy @ Halloween. Of course with such limited reward supplies they really wouldn't have to hand out too much if they didn't want to but then they'd find themselves w/ possibly some very irate customers and fans. Really the idea of these recruit programs is to not only obtain but maintain people devoted to promoting the company & spreading word of the product. A town/local rep w/o actually being a rep being paid by the company to spread the word and get these in stores. Since our crack shack B&M deals w/ a piss ass distributor no way these will make it to town here...

    Re: 262 Underground

    Hey Steve, I definetly understand why some wouldnt be interested in this. It is certainly time consuming for those of you that arent in a heavily B&M saturated area. If you really want to try the Paradigm and Ideology just goto the website and build a sampler.

    https://www.smoketherevolution.com/S...ar_sampler.asp

    At this the time that is the only way youll be able to pick some up without having to take a multiple hour roadtrip. We are a very young company and are picking up more B&M's every week but it is still a slow process. Hopefully within the next 12 months we will have most major markets covered.

    Did any of my referrals help out?
