Help us build our next EZ game and earn bonus VersaPoints!

ZackHelpUsCreateAs most of you know, we have lots of awesome games in development at the Eager Zebra games laboratory.

One of these new games, which we hope to introduce in a few weeks, involves fun survey questions.  But we need your help before we can launch this new game!  That is, we need you to complete as many of the surveys as you can (so that we can use them in the new game)…and we’ll reward you with free bonus VersaPoints!

Each day, you can answer up to 20 of our survey questions and earn 1 AVP (Action VersaPoint).

You can answer your first 20 questions right now at:

http://www.sfimg.com/tic_survey

Note that unlike actions like rating Ask SC answers, there IS a limited number of surveys and, hence, a limited number of VersaPoints that can be earned.  However, everyone should be able to earn at least 100-150 VersaPoints over the next few months.

A big THANK YOU in advance to everyone who will be helping us create our new game.  We think it’s going to be our best game yet, and in time it’s going to have a very international scope, too.  We can’t wait to share all the details with you!  THANKS AGAIN!

Introducing…Big Dog games, Junior games, and more!

logo-EagerZebraComEveryone who is familiar with our very popular Pricebenders auctions knows about the following auction types:

  • Double MRP auctions
  • 1WA auctions (auctions for those looking for their first win)
  • Junior auctions
  • Big Dog auctions

We’re excited today to announce that all of these attributes will now be appearing regularly in our Knockout Trivia games, too!

We will be testing different percentages, but currently you will see:

  • 1W (restricted to only those who’ve not yet won) on 4% of matches
  • Junior (restricted to only those with 5 wins or less) on 4% of matches
  • Double MRP on 15% of matches
  • Big Dog auctions on 4% of matches

What makes Big Dog games…big dog?  Entry for Big Dog games will be 5 TCredits.  Lifelines, revivals, etc. will also cost more TCredits.  So why play when it costs more?  Here are three big reasons:

  1. Bigger Zackpots are likely
  2. Less competition is likely
  3. Winners earn a special Knockout Trivia Big Dog badge (note: expires after 15 days).

 

Your first opportunity  to earn Big Dog status will be in match #2109, which will be coming up in about 15-20 minutes (from this post time).

We are going to also continue to offer free entry for 48% of all matches.

To know which attribute each current or upcoming game is using (if any), simply check out the Knockout Trivia panel on the GAMES index at: http://www.tripleclicks.com/indexContests.php

Enjoy!

FYI: So that you can be alerted to the types of games you want to participate in, we will soon be making available a special Eager Zebra Twitter feed that you’ll be able to subscribe to to receive notifications of games starts for each of the different types of games.

NEW BADGES

Following is our new set of badges for round 2-5 qualifiers.  Unlike any other badges we’ve ever done, these new badges actually “build upon themselves” as you qualify for each round until it displays–along the left side–the full E365 logo!

E365 Round 2-5 Qualifier Badges

Note: These badges are displayed only while you remain in contention.  If you are eliminated from the E365 contest, so too do you lose these badges.

Once you make the finals (round six), your SFI homepage, Leadership Page, etc. will now be sporting this handsome new badge (yours permanently unless you become your class’ champion):

badge-E365finalist

…and, finally, should you claim the championship for your class on your 365th day in SFI, you’ll permanently sport this prestigious badge:

badge-E365champion

Note that all current finalist and champions will also be sporting the splashier new FINALIST and CHAMPION badges.
