Two Lessons in worDrop, Two Shots at 200 Swag Bucks
Happy Weekend from Swag Central High!
It’s so great to see you all again after Wednesday’s lesson in keyboarding with Nicole. Nicole and I both really enjoyed seeing all your reports so I hope you enjoyed making them. I’m sure everyone has a big graduation party to go to this weekend, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t use a little time to exercise your vocabulary in a fun way. Just like Wednesday, we have the pleasure of having a guest speaker deliver your assignment!
Swag Name: Rhyolyn
Location: Calgary, AB CANADA
Length of SB Membership: 1 Year 7 Months
Favorite Way to Earn: Surveys
Challenge Game: WorDrop
Challenge Score: 1000
Challenge Tip: My wish for this game – A pause button
Optional Something Fun About Me: My favorite pastime is doing horoscopes
I’m guessing from their tip that Rhyolyn thinks you better stay active and quick and forming words. I know that for me, I often struggle with this game because I’m trying to form specific words rather than see what words I could form. Some of you may remember my infamous “tree” issue. Rhyolyn, if you’re with us this weekend, I have a question for you: Is it that you read horoscopes for others or enjoy reading your own? Perhaps you could read mine. I was born on April 12th.
So what’s this Weekend’s Game Challenge? Get a score higher than 1000 inworDrop and post a link to a screenshot of your challenge-meeting score in the comments for this blog post. Alternatively, you can take a screenshot of a tournament entry from this weekend with any score on any game. 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 challenge-meeting 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.
Extra Credit: If your entry shows a score higher than 7000 and you are one of this weekend’s lucky winners, you will receive an additional 50 Swag Bucks. Extra Extra Credit: If your entry includes an interesting memory about yourself or your perspective from when you were in high school and you are one of this weekend’s winners, you will receive an additional 50 Swag Bucks. You must submit a new memory with each entry for it to count. That means this weekend, you could potentially win 400 Swag Bucks!
Last but not least, you could be a host of an upcoming game challenge on any game by filling out the same information Rhyolyn did and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your challenge is selected, you will receive 100 Swag Bucks. Make sure you’re playing games this coming week. It just might be extra rewarding…
Good luck. Have fun. Be home by midnight.
Update: This weekend’s winners are sambucka and jennylynn143! Congratulations!
If you didn’t win this weekend, it’s never too late to try your hand at winning 100 SB by sending in your own game challenge. I’ll see you all back for another game challenge Wednesday, in the blog.
