Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

Welcome back, everyone. I really hope you were able to take advantage of our special 3 day Weekend Game Challenge. If not, I hope it’s because you were busy doing something otherwise fun and rewarding. After a nice, lengthy weekend, we’re back at work here and today’s challenge is celebrating just that. However, unlike a lot of things you might have to do on the job, for today’s challenge, you get a choice:

Johnny Race or Be Late!

We’ve probably all been there before. Running late to an important meeting or just to get somewhere on time, sometimes, you just have to move at your very fastest to get there on time. In Johnny Race or Be Late!, that’s exactly what you have to do. Click your mouse button as quickly as possible to build up speed. The highest speed you achieve is your score. For today’s challenge, you will need a score greater than or equal to 228 (kph).

Office Catapult

This is one of my favorite games to play. I’ve never tried this in real life. Probably because I can never find a ruler when I need to measure something, let alone launch something. It’s a slow day at work and there’s plenty of time and paper to kill. Launch balls of crumpled paper into the waste bin by aiming with your cursor and clicking to fire. Get a high score, by getting balls into the basket consecutively. That’d be easy enough, but coworkers are fickle and often like to move the fan. Use the breeze from the fan to help direct your shots into the trash. For today’s challenge you will need to show a score of 3 or more.

Flip-Out

No matter how much we prepare or how organized we are, sometimes, it just feels like you can never quite find what you’re looking for and just flip out. Hopefully, today, luck will be on your side and you will be quick to find just what you’re looking for as quickly as possible in Flip-Out. Flip over cards and make matches as quickly as possible to keep the game going and keep your score high. Some levels, you will simply need to make matches, others, you will have find cards that relate to each other in a different way like matching equipment from the same sport or finding cards from the same suit. Match the card with sparkles around it while it’s still sparkling and get bonus points! For today’s challenge, you will need a score equal to or higher than 26,000.

So what’s today’s challenge? Get a score equal to or higher than those listed above, 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.

For today’s challenge, if you include a fact or memory about what you do for work now or in the past or even what you wish you were doing for work with your entry and you are one of today’s lucky winners, you will win an additional 25 Swag Bucks.

Good luck and have fun!

Update: This week’s winners are SueT50, ashleymtisdale, & mariotunon  -Congratulations!  New Challenge Saturday!

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