Independent Study for 100 Swag Bucks or Much, Much More

Happy Hump Day, Everyone.

I’m sorry i’m late. Student Union was giving out free hacky sacks in the quad. University Week continues here and the Game Challenge is no exception. I hope you all weren’t up too late last night, rushing Gamma Gamma Games. If you haven’t done so already, you’re definitely going to want to check them out. You could win 250 Swag Bucks just by earning at least one Swag Buck playing Games before September 3rd. More on that here.

Remember how way back in high school, we all had to write or give reports? Well, I hope you had your coffee or red bull today because you’re in college now and we’re going to take it up a notch for today’s gaming lab.

So what’s today’s challenge? Play any Swagbucks Game, take a screenshot of your final score, and post a link in the comments for this blog post along with a memory about a teacher. 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 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.

Extra Credit: Play any two Swagbucks Games. Include a screenshot from one.  Include a thesis statement for a report you would write, comparing what can be taken away from the two different games. Your thesis statement can be more than one sentence. If you want, write a brief report, explaining your thesis. If you do this and are one of today’s lucky winners, you will receive an additional 50 Swag Bucks. Extra Extra Credit: Instead of comparing two Swagbucks Games, include a thesis that compares what you take away from a game with what you take away from a video on SBTV and include a link to the video you used. Do this and if you are one of today’s lucky winners you will receive an additional 200 Swag Bucks. Here’s an example of what this might look like:

BLINKY SMASH is an inspiring game about the importance of alliances in harsh environments and the need to seek shelter from large objects falling from the sky. In contrast, “World’s Largest Cabbage Revealed” tells a tale of how the modern world seeks the novelty of large objects without fear of being smashed.


That’s it for today. I will see you all back here Saturday for an especially rewarding Weekend game Challenge.

Good luck. Have fun. Don’t study too hard!

Update: This week’s winners are SueT50, yodaa2005, & KeertiDe! Congratulations!

Great Teacher stories, everyone!

Come back Saturday for the Weekend Challenge!

Don’t forget you can also earn yourself 100 Swag Bucks by submitting a Game Challenge of your own! Submit as many as you like!
