Exploring Games for 100 Swag Bucks

Posted by on Wed, February 27th, 2013 at 9:00 am

Happy, Happy Wednesday, Swag Nation!

Ch-ch-ch-changes! Boy, is it a different view for the Game Challenge on this particular Wednesday… I really hope you were here with us on Monday, celebrating our 5th birthday with giveaways and fun. If not, perhaps you missed our big reveal and the introduction to our new Games area. If that’s the case, today is the day to check it out because that’s today’s game challenge is all about.

What’s today’s challenge? Play any Swagbucks Game and post a link to a screenshot of any point in the game in the comments. 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 games. 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.

To spice things up a bit, if your screenshot shows your score in a tournament from today, if you are one of the lucky winners, you will receive an additional 50 Swag Bucks.

In case we aren’t already acquainted, my name is Justin and I run the game challenges and manage many aspects of the Games area. As with all Wednesday Game Challenges, if you have a question, concern, or idea you’d like to express regarding games, tournaments, and challenges, I will be in and out of the comments throughout the day.

I’m going to start with this: I know many of the games you like might be missing. Some of them will be coming back soon. If a game you like is not currently in the All Games section, it is because it was not crediting users properly and securely when it came to earned Swag Bucks. This is most important. Some of the games missing now will become available in time while we ensure that you will receive credit for your plays before they return. I can’t say for certain whether or not an individual game will be back or when only because I would truly like to get all games you like up and earning you Swag Bucks, but in the end, that might not be possible. If we can’t bring all of the games back, I will be working to make sure we have fun replacements you guys like as soon as possible so just stay tuned and be sure to keep stopping by for Wednesday Game Challenges and leaving a comments to let me know what you like and what you don’t.

Good luck with today’s challenge! Have fun. I will see you in the comments.

Update: This week’s winners were nLinz, Scaless, and hennryy – Congratulations!
