Two Days of IDan610’s Challenge, Two Shots at 200 Swag Bucks

Happy Weekend, Swag Nation!

Great to see ya! I hope you all are off to a good start, enjoying your weekend. Personally, in between my gaming, I think I might go see a movie. I’m definitely curious to see Catching Fire and I still need to see Gravity. How ‘bout you guys? Any fun plans this weekend?

I had a jolly good time playing poker with you guys on Wednesday. I hope you did too. This weekend, we have a Swaggernaut suggested Game Challenge from IDan610. I already tried IDan’s challenge and had a great time. In fact I learned something new, but I’ll get to that after we see what he’s challenged us with…

Swag Name: IDan610

Location: Katy, TX

Length of SB Membership:  2 Days

Favorite Way to Earn: Search & Play

Challenge Game: Drop3

Challenge Score:58,00025,000

Challenge Tip: Use the physics engine to your advantage, and do not give up if things start getting ugly.

Wow, that may seem like a fairly obvious tip, but keep this in mind as you play and see if IDan610’s words of advice don’t get you a little further. In Drop3, you’re trying to line up 3 or more shapes of the same color so that they touch in a Tetrisque challenge. All the shapes don’t stack perfectly, so using the fact that stacks of shapes are likely to topple to your advantage is a good idea. You also have the space bar to make use of to nudge the shapes and shake things up.  If you forget to use it the whole round, do not forget when things “start getting ugly.” You’d be surprised how much further you can get with a few good nudges.

So what’s this Weekend’s Game Challenge? Get a score higher than 25,000 in Drop3 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.

IDan610’s actual challenge score was 58,000. If your entry shows you were able to score 58,000 or higher and you are one of this weekend’s lucky winners, you will win an additional 25 SB.

I love learning about you guys and all the great stuff you share so include what you’re up to this weekend or share a song or movie you’re really excited about lately and if you’re one of this weekend’s winners, you’ll be rewarded with an additional 15 SB.

This is the last weekend you have to enter The Big Funds for Black Friday Tournament where you can win 6,500 SB and entry into the 25,000 Swag Bucks Holiday Giveaway so if you were thinkin’ you’d wait for the crowd to die down, now is your chance! It ends Tuesday so be sure and get your final entries in. Remember that the entrants with the top 10 scores all receive free entry into the Holiday Giveaway so you don’t have to be #1 to walk away a winner.

Good luck. Have fun. Have the weekend you’re hoping for!

Update: This weekend’s winners are Abiggzer and dragongirl13! Congratulations!

Don’t forget: Today’s the last day to enter The Big Funds for Black Friday Tournament and you can still earn yourself 100 swag Bucks by submitting a  game challenge of your own!
