Mastering the Ways of the Fruit for 100 Swag Bucks

Posted by on Wed, September 25th, 2013 at 6:00 am

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

Welcome back, everybody! Did anyone happen to notice we played Falling Leaves Four in a Row on the first day of Fall? I can assure you that was very much on purpose and I did not just realize that right now after the fact. Does it feel like fall yet out where you are? At Swag Central, I think the only colored leaves I’ve seen are the Fall Foliage Collector’s Bills, but it is getting colder.  Anyway, enough about the weather… It’s time to play some games for Swag Bucks and get FRUITY!

That’s right, Swag Nation, today’s challenge is on Gallagher’s favorite game, Fruit Master and things are gonna get juicy. In Fruit Master, you take revenge on all the fruit that laughed at you and called you short guy and four eyes and Justin Crustin your whole life because you’re in your twenties now and a reasonable height and you work for a cool website and you don’t have to take that anymore!

Sorry… That’s something I’m working on. Fruit just really upsets me.

So! Use your cursor to direct your fruit-fighting fury. Click to begin a slash and release to end it. I find that the slashes are so quick, you really just have to click once as you slash through the fruit and it isn’t necessary to worry so much about the release. You can let up to three whole pieces of fruit hit the floor before the game is over, but don’t slash grenades. If you slash just one grenade the game is over.  If you’re on a laptop, I recommend you consider grabbing a mouse if you have one because a touch pad can be…  well…  a bit touchy.

So what’s today’s challenge? Get a score of 20 or more in Fruit Master, 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.

Good luck. Have Fun. May the fruit be with you.

Update: This week’s winners are Megshere, 0MGoodness, & NebulaBliss  -Congratulations!  New Challenge Saturday!
