Droppin’ Trois for 100 Swag Bucks
Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!
Thanks for another great Weekend Game Challenge. You guys crushed it. Congratulations to rajputash and multiwarior for winning Swag Bucks in the Weekend Game Challenge Tournament! Last week’s challenges were especially tough and you guys did pretty well so today, I’m going to take it easier on ya.
In Drop3, shapes are falling from the top and you have to use the arrow keys to direct them (just like Tetris). The game is over when the shapes reach the top, but you score points and remove shapes from the screen by making like-colored groups of 3 or more. Simple enough, but because there are different shapes in the mix, they don’t all land on top of one another very neatly. This is where your skill is going to come into play. Do your best to stack the shapes where you want them, but if it doesn’t quite work out, don’t be afraid to use the space bar to “nudge” the shaped and see if you can get them to topple in your favor.
So what’s today’s challenge? Get a score of over 27,000 in Drop3, take a screenshot proving it, and post a link in the comments for this blog post. You can take a screenshot of the final score screen or of your tournament entry or your highest score on your 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.
Just like last week, we’re hosting a special Wednesday Game Challenge Tournament on Drop3 so if you’re feelin’ lucky, be sure and enter because the pot is going to keep growing and the winner will be chosen tonight!
Don’t forget you can submit your own challenge on the game of your choosing by filling out the information provided in our Weekend Game Challenges.
Good luck and have fun!
