Two Days of Klondike Solitaire, Two Shots at 200 Swag Bucks
Happy Weekend, Swag Nation!
Sometimes, life seems challenging. Sometimes, life just feels like you’re trying balance a tennis racket on the tip of your finger while balls fall all around you and for some reason, you just wanna collect a few, but it’s hard… Too hard… That’s when you’ve got to just take a weekend to myself and relax with a little Klondike Solitaire and maybe a couple of chances to win 200 Swag Bucks or more.
If you’ve never played Solitaire before or are unfamiliar with the scoring, the goal is to get all of the cards up to the top row, starting with the aces. For each card you get to the top row, also known as the foundation, you are given 5 points. Once you are able to add an ace to the foundation, you can a 2 of the same suit, and then a 3 of the same suit and so on. Add cards to the foundation by double clicking on them. In order to reveal more cards and access them to add them to the foundation, draw cards and if they are not able to be added to the foundation immediately, look for opportunities to add them to the displayed piles (tableau). You may add a card to a pile when the card beneath it is one value above and of a different color suit. You can also move piles in this same way. For more on how to play Solitaire, run a Swag Search!
So what’s this Weekend’s Game Challenge? Get a score of 40 or more in Klondike Solitaire and post a link to a screenshot that shows your accomplishment in the comments. For each of these correctly filled out posts, you will have one entry in a raffle to win 200 Swag Bucks. You may enter as many times as you like with new screenshots of different scores. One winner will be selected at random from each day of entries and announced in this blog post and on Twitter on Monday. That means, if you enter on Saturday, you can come back Sunday to enter again and be part of a new raffle. If you need an image hosting service, I recommend tinypic.com. The link you want is the URL.
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.
To make things a bit more interesting, if you are one of the lucky winners and your entry shows a score above 90 points or your entry is in reply to someone else’s and beating their score, you will win an additional 50 Swag Bucks.
As always, I’m still gathering your suggestions for upcoming game challenges. A lot of you have requested the same game so definitely be on the lookout for it to be in an upcoming game challenge soon. If you have a suggestion for an upcoming game challenge please leave it in the comments. It just might be an upcoming challenge.
Good luck. Have fun. Have a great weekend!
Update: This weekend’s winners were sambucka and barbarawr – Congratulations!
