A Day on the Wonder Green for 100 Swag Bucks

Posted by on Wed, January 2nd, 2013 at 9:00 am

Happy, Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

I hope you all had a great holiday season and are off to a good new year. I thought that with this being the first Wednesday Game Challenge of the new year and having just said goodbye to some beloved games, we should start with an especially fun new game.

Wonderputt!

I’m not sure quite what to tell you about Wonderputt except it’s great fun, very clever and rather pretty and peaceful. If an M.C. Escher painting, a Rube Goldberg device, and a miniature golf course all had a baby, that baby would be Wonderputt. It’s really all just a peaceful, zany game of mini-golf. Use your cursor to line up shots and set the power of your stroke. Click to take a swing. Play through once and unlock wonder mode.

For this Wednesday’s Game Challenge, complete a round of Wonderputt (all 18 holes) and post a link to a screenshot of your score in the comments. For each of these correctly filled out posts you make, you will have one entry in a raffle to win 100 Swag Bucks. You may enter as many times as you like with new screenshots showing a different score. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend tinypic.com because it’s quick and easy. Three winners will be selected at random from all of Wednesday’s entries and announced in this blog post and on Twitter on Thursday.

You can also participate via Twitter by tweeting your screenshot @Swagbucks, along with your Swag Name and the hashtag #sbgames. You may place each entry both on Twitter and in the comments, but if you win from an entry placed on Twitter, you will win an additional 100 Swag Bucks.

I wanted you all to be able to enjoy Wonderputt at your own pace so you’ll notice there isn’t a score required to enter this week, but if you are one of the lucky 3 winners and your screenshot shows a score over 80,000 points, you will win an additional 50 Swag Bucks.

Lastly, I’ll be in and out of the comments throughout the day if you need help. How did the holidays treat you? Have fun? Any cool gaming experiences or gifts?

Enjoy Wonderputt and Good Luck!

Update: This week’s winners were enhanced, BruisedEggplant, and lilcee – Congratulations!

A Look Back at 2012: A Letter from the CEO

Dear Swaggernauts, In what may become a Swagbucks tradition, I reflect on the year that passed during this holiday season. So I decided to go back to the post I penned a year ago and I’m happy to say that not only did many of my wishes come true but I think 2012 was even ... Read More »
