Fishin’ for Stars for 100 Swag Bucks or More

Posted by on Wed, December 4th, 2013 at 6:00 am

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

Welcome back, everybody. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got a pretty good feeling about today’s challenge. I was playing today’s game earlier and I don’t mind telling you… somebody was on fiyaaaa… And that’s weird because it takes place underwater! Anyway, today, I’m going to challenge you to catch some of that heat and we’ll see how well you all do in Starfish!

In Starfish, you use your cursor to guide “Fishwart” around  the sea, avoiding the dangers of the ocean like sharks, lantern fish, rays, and crabs. The goal is to collect as many starfish as you can without coming into contact with any unsavory characters. Sounds a bit like Black Friday shopping! Anyway, be careful as you navigate these waters because if you manage to touch a shark or ray, you lose starfish and if do it too many times, the game is over.

So what’s today’s challenge? Get a score of 100 or more in Starfish, 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.

Oh… Did someone say something about catching the blaze? If your entry shows a score over 300 and you include the phrase “HOT FIYAAA” or any phrase indicating you’ve caught the fire and you are one of today’s lucky winners, you will receive an extra 25 Swag Bucks.

Speaking of receiving Swag Bucks, you can receive a whole lotta Swag Bucks by winning The Really Big Regate Tournament where first place not only gets 3000 Swag Bucks, but also 100 entries into the PS4 AND Xbox One Swagstakes where you can win both a PS4 and an Xbox One. In addition to the Swag Bucks prizes listed on the tournament, all members with scores in the top 10 will receive a minimum of 10 entries into the Swagstakes. If you enter the Really Big Regate Tournament today, you can use those scores to enter in today’s challenge.

It was really nice to see so much camaraderie in the challenge over the weekend. I really appreciate you guys helping each other out and it’s always nice when you leave feedback (and poems). I’ve taken note!

Good luck and have fun!

Update: This week’s winners are Aquamarine84, Jangweng, and Timgina323 -Congratulations!  New Challenge Saturday!

If you weren’t one of our winners this week, consider submitting a game challenge of your own for another chance at 100 Swag Bucks! Submit for a variety of games and you’re pretty much guaranteed to be selected in time.
