Four Leaves, 100 Swag Bucks

Posted by on Wed, November 21st, 2012 at 9:00 am

Good Morning, Swag Nation.

Happy Wednesday!

For many of us, today is special because Thanksgiving is on the horizon. If you’re busy preparing for the holiday and feeling like you don’t really have time to learn a new game for today’s challenge, you’re in quite a bit of luck because today’s game should seem pretty familiar to a lot of you which means you already have a leg up on winning 100 Swag Bucks.

Remember that game where you tried to connect four of your own pieces in a row while someone else tried to stop you? There are rows and you take turns placing pieces in each row until one of you connects four? What was that called? Oh yeah, Falling Leaves Four in a Row!

There is a slight twist to what you may remember and that is that you can get a higher score if you manage to get four of your pieces in a row using fewer drops. The less moves you require, the higher your score.

So what’s today’s challenge? Beat my score of 14620! If it seems easy, it is, but you may have to try a few times. Maybe get that bird in the oven and come back. Turkeys, that might be a good time for you to bail.

In order to be eligible for 100 Swag Bucks take a screenshot of your challenge-beating score and post a link to it here in the comments along with a comment about if you have any gaming related traditions you usually do on or around any holidays in which you get together with your family. Could be playing Nintendo, whatever’s on your phone, or even a card or board game. I know for me, in addition to some good food, Thanksgiving usually means Jenga with my cousins, but this year, I will be out of town so I might have to challenge them to some Tower Builder. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend postimage.org, but you can use whatever you like.

In order to be eligible for 100 extra Swag Buck, tweet your score @Swagbucks with your Swag Name and the hashtag #sbgames. Three winners will be selected at random and due to the holiday, they will not be announced until the Weekend Game Challenge here, in the blog on Saturday.

Good luck to everyone. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving if you’re celebrating. If you’re not, an awesome Thursday will suffice. Congratulations to last weekend’s winners!

Posted by on Mon, November 19th, 2012 at 9:00 am
I remember watching Glee a couple of years ago with my girlfriends, in the episode where Diana Agron did a rendition of “You Keep Me Hangin’ On by The Supremes”.  My friends and I got off the sofa and danced around the living room like we were at the disco.  Exactly 46 years ago today, this ...
