Two Days of Making a Splash, Catching Fruit in the Rain, Two Shots at 200 Swag Bucks

Happy Weekend, Swag Nation!

Great to be back. Wednesday’s Challenge was extra swagalicious and the competition, fierce. So great to see some familiar faces we’d been missing for a while. If you weren’t able to make it, we played the Swag games! Swag Jump, Swagasaurus Run, and Swag Memory. If you haven’t checked ‘em out yet, they’re good fun! For this weekend’s challenge… Holy Real Choice-Choosers of Choicington Hills, you get another choice!

Choose Between:

Color Splash where you use the arrow keys to stamp colors as accurately as possible, matching the color of the items moving along a conveyor belt. You will need to stamp some items 2-3 times to make the correct color from red, yellow, and blue. Red and yellow make orange; blue and red make violet; red, yellow, and blue make brown and so on. A great challenge for quick thinkers. The base score for this weekend’s challenge is 250.

Catch 2 where you move your cursor to guide a bowl side, to side, catching as many balls as you can while trying not to let any fall. If too many hit the ground, the game is over. The base score for this weekend’s challenge is 480.

Fruit Master where you use your cursor to slice your way to a nice fruit salad, being careful not to let any fruit hit the ground without a good slice and avoiding grenades. Click to start a slice and release to end it. For this weekend’s challenge, you must get a score equal to or higher than 40.

Or

Ball Rain where you just might die before you figure out what’s happening. Friends don’t let friends not know how to play Ball Rain! This game is about balance. Use your cursor to balance the racket. Keep the handle of the racket beneath its strings to ensure it’s balanced. You will need to do this the moment you start the game. Collect tennis balls to add to your score. Avoid others to stay playing. The moment the racket tips or you make contact with a ball other than a tennis ball, the game is over. I won’t kid you; this is one of the toughest games we have. If you choose this challenge, be proud, be boastful. The score you will need to qualify for this weekend’s challenge is anything over 1,300.

So what’s this Weekend’s Game Challenge? Get a challenge meeting score in any of the games above 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 tinypic.com. 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.

You can make your entry worth more by including a comment about something you’re really interested in, a fact about it, or the most you’ve ever won from a Swagbucks tournament. Ideally, you include new tidbits with each entry. We’re interested! If you do this and you are one of this weekend’s lucky winners, you will be rewarded with an extra 25 Swag Bucks.

Speaking of winning tournaments, you could win quite a bit in The Really Big Regate Tournament where you can win up to 6000 Swag Bucks and 270 entries into the PlayStation 4 AND Xbox One Swagstakes. You can also earn yourself 100 Swag Bucks by submitting a  game challenge of your own. You’ll receive your 100 Swag Bucks when your challenge is selected.

That’s it for me this weekend.

Good luck. Have fun. Have a very Nice (or Naughty) Weekend!

Update: This weekend’s winners are walrusgod and veggiemarjie! Congratulations! New Challenge Wednesday!

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