Word Chainin’ Plussin’ for 100 Swag Bucks

Posted by on Wed, April 3rd, 2013 at 9:00 am

Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

Wow…  Wednesday already…  I feel like it was just yesterday that we were busy winning Swag Bucks with the Weekend Game Challenge.  I suppose we’ll have to play another fun game for another chance to win some Swag Bucks!

Attention Word Gamers, today’s challenge is especially for you. We’re playing Word Chain Plus!

While many of you may recall that I am not the best at word games, I do really enjoy Word Chain Plus. I think it’s a neat challenge to just use your brain a little and try to come up with the best score you can.

To play Word Chain Plus, just select a letter in the word given and choose a different letter to replace it with in order to make a new word. Ideally, you change as little as possible so you can keep getting points quickly, as you make new words. Say the word given is “BAKE.” You could then highlight the “B” and change it to a “C” and you will automatically get points for ”CAKE.” Change the “C” to an “F” and you will score again for “FAKE.” You can do this with any letter in the word. Be quick because if you run out of time, the game is over.

What’s today’s challenge? Take a screenshot anywhere in Word Chain Plus and post a link in the comments for this blog post. You can take a screenshot in game or of your tournament entry or your highest score on your My Games page. 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.

If you are one of today’s lucky winners and your screenshot shows an entry in one of today’s Word Chain Plus tournaments, you will win an additional 25 SB.

A lot of people tend to have trouble with this game so if you’re an expert, leave a tip along with your entry and help your fellow Swaggernaut!

Good luck and Have fun!

Update: This week’s winners were 44mozart, ladyfredrick198, and Tams78  - Congratulations!
