Good Morning, Swag Nation!  It’s Wednesday so it’s time for another game challenge where you can earn 100 SB for tweeting @Swagbucks with the hash tag #sbgames and your Swag Name.  Today’s challenge is an easy one .  Not only will you only will you not have to beat specific score, but you have THREE new games to choose from to tweet us a screenshot of your favorite.  Two of you will be selected at random to win 100 SB, but to make things more interesting, if you tweet a screenshot or screenshots of each of the 3 games in action, one of you will be selected to win 150 SB.

With four new games, there’s no question that we’re keeping with our theme of athletic games for the summer.


In On Your Marks!, it’s all about reaction time and making sure you’re off the line as fast as possible. Easy to play, just hit any button to get started. When you hear “set,” hit the button a second time as quickly as possible. When the gun goes off, hit that button a third time and you’ve got your time for attempt 1. You’ll be surprised at how addictive it is, trying to beat your own time or your friends’. Try beating 0.200!


In Long Jump, well yeah, you’re doin the Long Jump. Two different ways to play: Mouse or Keyboard. If you’ve played other track and field games the keyboard will seem familiar, but Long Jump offers a fun new way to play with the mouse: Click to get started; shake your mouse left and right to build speed; when you get near the line, hold down click and drag your mouse at the angle you would like to jump. By the way, that’s a 5.23 meter jump right there.


In 40 Yard Dash, you’re running 40 yards! If only getting ourselves to run was as easy as hitting any two keys alternatively as fast as you can. That’s what you’ll be doing in this virtual sprint. Beat your own time or a friend. That white figure in the background is the ghost of athletics past, here to show you what your last best time was. Beat your own best, a friend’s or 4.90s!

Those are the games for today, let us know how you like them in the comments and don’t forget to tweet your screenshots to @Swagbucks with #sbgames and your Swag Name for a chance at 100-150 Swag Bucks!
