Keyboarding Class for 100 Swag Bucks or More

Posted by on Wed, August 21st, 2013 at 6:00 am

Happy Wednesday from Swag Central High School!

My, how quickly you all grow up. It feels like it was just last Wednesday that you all were in elementary school. I want to thank all of you who attended our study group over the weekend. As always, it was really neat to learn more about you all.

I know everyone’s all excited to talk about who’s going to the ice cream social with who, but if you would please take off your hats, spit out your gum, and remain seated quietly, I have an important assignment for you and to introduce the subject matter for this assignment, we have a very special guest speaker:

Team Swagbucks Name: Nicole

Location: Los Angeles, CA

Length of SB Membership: 2.5 Years

Favorite Way to Earn: Shop and Earn

Challenge Game: Key Crusher

Challenge Score: 100

Challenge Tip: I recommend listening to music and make sure you are in a distraction free zone before you start playing this game.  Once it starts there’s no turning back.  The letters that I miss the most are C and B. I don’t know what it is about those two letters but I always hit the X or V instead.   My wish for this game – A pause button!

Optional Something Fun About Me: My favorite pastime activity is doing nail art while watching Dexter.

So what’s today’s challenge? Get a score over 100 in Key Krusher, take a screenshot, and post a link in the comments for this blog post. 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.

Extra Credit: If your entry shows you were able to beat Nicole’s actual challenge score of 994 (I wasn’t going to do that to you guys) and you are one of today’s lucky winners, you will receive an additional 50 Swag Bucks. Extra Extra Credit: If your entry includes a response to the following prompt and you are one of today’s lucky winners, you receive an additional 50 Swag Bucks

Explain what you feel the author of this game is trying to say about life. What in the author’s life do you think led the author to this conclusion?

Guaranteed Credit: If you are so bold as to give an oral report on the prompt above, and post a link to a video along with the phrase “My Report!” you are guaranteed to be given 25 Swag Bucks and entry in today’s challenge. One 25 SB award per student.

Lastly, as many of you already know, you can always submit a game challenge of your own by filling out the same information Nicole did and emailing it to games@swagbucks.com. If your challenge is selected, you will win 100 Swag Bucks.

Good luck. Have fun. Don’t dance too close together.

Update: This week’s winners are NJones74, Jmshortridge, and Steflrb! Congratulations!

It’s not too late to submit your own game challenge like Nicole did above. Your game challenge could be featured this weekend and earn you 100 Swag Bucks!
