Burninatin’ the Countryside for 100 Swag Bucks

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

We’re back after a fun weekend of memory games and friendly competition.  Today, we’re playing a game that may not be the Swag Nation’s most popular, but perhaps the most appreciated by those that are into it.  If you’ve never played before or never understood how people get so far in it, we’re playingBurney today and it’s a great day to give it a shot!

In Burney, you control a flame on the loose, burning up as much as possible within the 60 second time limit. Mostly, you take down a number of trees, but the real points are in kegs of dynamite, cars, and other larger items that are just a little too not on fire for Burney’s taste.

Many people play this game a few times and never have any understanding of how they could have scored much better. Burney is a simple game, but it takes a little focus to master. Make a point of playing more than once and see how choosing a different path helps your score. From there, there’s just one last thing to focus on and that’s vehicles.  You make it to a vehicle today, you give yourself a high five. That’s the beginning of Burney greatness.

What’s today’s challenge? Take a screenshot anywhere in Burney and post a link in the comments for this blog post. You can take a screenshot in game or of your tournament entry or your highest score onyour My Games page. 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 different scores. You may wish to protect your efforts by adding your Swag Name to it in a paint program. 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 today’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.

If you’re one of today’s lucky winners and your entry shows your score in one of today’s Burney tournaments, you will win an additional 25 Swag Bucks!

If you’ve got any good Burney tips, be sure and leave them in the comments!

Good luck and have fun!
