Seeing Sparks with ArgieLinn for 100 Swag Bucks or More

Posted by on Wed, April 16th, 2014 at 6:00 am

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

I hope you all had a great week and weekend. Today, we’ll be playing a Swaggernaut suggested Challenge! It’s on one of our new games and I think you will all enjoy it. Sparks!

A lot of people mention Tetris when describing Sparks. It’s quite similar in that different colored “sparks” are falling from the sky and your task is to position and rotate them so that you are connecting as many same colored sparks as possible. As you connect like colored sparks in groups of 3 or more, those sparks will disappear and add to your score. You can use arrow keys or WASD to control the movement and rotation of falling sparks. Gain bonuses by making as many matches in a row as you can as quickly as possible.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to know ArgieLinn better. If you don’t remember ArgieLinn by name, you might remember that she has a collection of 650 movies!

Swag Name: Argielinn

Location: Raytown, MO

Length of SB Membership: 9 months

Favorite Way to Earn: Special Offers and Games

Challenge Game: Sparks

Challenge Score: 687,425Any Score!

Challenge Tip: I try not to focus too hard on the game so that I don’t mess myself up, instead, I think of other things, like coffee!

Optional Something Fun About Me: I have moved a total of 17 times in my life and have seen most of the continental US because of it.

That’s a lot of moves! ArgieLinn, if you read this, please tell us which place you lived in and enjoyed most!

So what’s today’s challenge? Get any score on Sparks, take a screenshot, and post a link in the comments for this blog post. Alternatively, you can take a screenshot of a tournament entry from today with any score on any game. 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.

Because it’s our first time having a game challenge on Sparks, there is no score requirement, but if you manage to beat ArgieLinn’s challenge score of 687,425 or you include a tip or review of the game with your entry and are one of this week’s lucky winners, you will receive an additional 25 Swag Bucks.

Remember, you can always submit a challenge of your own like ArgieLinn did by filling out the same information you see above and emailing it to games@swagbucks.com. You will receive 100 Swag Bucks if your challenge is selected!

Good luck and have fun!

Update: This week’s winners are denilyn4, MJRMedia, & shanechristine  -Congratulations!  New Challenge next week!

Don’t forget: You can still earn yourself 100 swag Bucks by submitting a  game challenge of your own!
