Entry Method 1: At the start of each Entry Period, the Milwaukee Brewers will post, on its official Twitter account (@Brewers) and its official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/brewers, a clue in the form of a riddle that you must solve correctly in order to determine a password that is required to enter, via this entry method, the prize drawing corresponding to that Entry Period (each, a "Prize Drawing"). You must solve the riddle correctly in order to qualify for entry via this entry method into the applicable Entry Period's drawing. Once you solve the riddle and determine the password, click the link in the social media post to go to brewers.com/uscellularclues (the "Website"). Instead of using the link, you may, instead, go directly to the Website. On the Website, follow all prompts and instructions to access the online entry form for the Sweepstakes. Complete the entry form during the applicable Entry Period with all required information, including, without limitation, the correct password for the applicable Entry Period and your email address, and follow all prompts and instructions to submit your entry.

Incomplete and/or inaccurate entries, including those entries submitted via Entry Method 1 that contain an incorrect password, are void and will not qualify for a Prize Drawing. No other method of entry will be accepted. Limit one (1) entry per person/ email address/household per Entry Period, regardless of the method used to enter.

Any attempt by an entrant to obtain more than one (1) entry for an Entry Period using multiple/different email addresses, postal addresses, identities, or other similar methods will void that entrant's entries, and that entrant may be disqualified from the Sweepstakes at the discretion of the Sponsor.
