Two Days of faronheights’ Zippy Suggestion, Two Shots at 200 Swag Bucks

Happy Weekend, Swag Nation!

Welcome back, everybody! If you’re into more actiony games, this weekend’s challenge from Swaggernaut faronheights is right up your alley. This weekend, we battle aliens!

  • Swag Name: faronheights

  • Location: Aurora, CO

  • Length of SB Membership: Nearly 9 months

  • Favorite Way to Earn: SBTV

  • Challenge Game: Zip Zap

  • Challenge Score: 50,000

  • Challenge Tip: Grab silver gems often to increase your multiplier, pink gems to fire quickly through foes and blue gems for temporary invulnerability. Above all, don’t die! Multiplier resets when you die.

  • Optional Something Fun About Me: My dog, Flapjack, is the most spastic dog in the world. He has a trick called “helicopter” in which he flips around a rope to sound like one. Amazingly, he does not hurt himself while doing this, either.

That might be the best tip we’ve ever featured so take note! If you’re looking to better your scores in Zip Zap, faronheights just told you exactly what the keys are to a high score. Picking up gems can be quite the risk so be sure you are following the number one tip, “don’t die!”

So what’s this Weekend’s Game Challenge? Get a score higher than 50,000 in Zip Zap 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 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.

Faronheights’ actual challenge score was 17,000,000! :^O Wasn’t going to do that to you folks, but if you can beat 17,000,000 not only should you definitely be competing in tournaments, but if your entry shows a score above 17M and you are one of this weekend’s lucky winners, you will win an additional 50 SB.

Per usual, when you go to play Zip Zap today will see some special tournaments just for this weekend’s challenge. One of them has a one Swag Buck entry fee! Speaking of low entry fees, for those of you who are into gaming outside of Swagbucks, I hope you’ve seen this cool Swagstakes where you could potentially win any game on any console for just 7 Swag Bucks! If that wasn’t a pretty good deal on its own, you can get two entries for the price of one all weekend!

That’s it for me. If you want to host a game challenge and win 100 SB just like faronheights, fill out the same information they did above and email it to

Good luck. Have fun. Have a zaptacular weekend!

Update: This weekend’s winners are lbtrivett and EvilScotsman1974! Congratulations!
