Badge Quest goes Rewardical!

badge_questAs mentioned in our big Rewardical announcement on October 31st, we plan to incorporate Rewardical tokens in numerous places.  Today, we’re pleased to announce that, effective immediately, our popular Badge Quest program is now awarding Rewardicals as its exclusive prize!  Following are the new rules and prizes.


There are FIVE levels in Badge Quest:

LEVEL ONE (Rising Star)
Upon earning 12 badges, you’ll advance to the first level in Badge Quest…Rising Star.  As a Rising Star, you’ll receive:

  • 150 Rewardicals
  • 1 Entry in the month’s “Badge Bounty” drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Rising Star badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport one trophy icon to reflect your level one status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL TWO (Pro)
Upon earning 30 badges, you’ll advance to the second level…Badge Quest Pro.  As a Pro, you’ll also automatically receive:

  • 500 Rewardicals
  • 2 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Pro badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport two trophy icons to reflect your level two status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL THREE (Master)
Upon earning 40 badges, you’ll advance to the third level…Badge Quest Master.  As a Master, you’ll also automatically receive these prizes:

  • 1000 Rewardicals
  • 3 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Master badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport three trophy icons to reflect your level three status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL FOUR (Grand Master)
Level four, Grand Master, is the first of two elite levels in Badge Quest.  To attain the Grand Master level in Badge Quest, it’s no longer about the quantity of badges you have.  Instead, qualification is now based on the point values we’ve assigned to each badge (the harder the badge is to attain, the more points it is worth).  If the total points value of your collected badges puts you in the top 200 of all players, congratulations, you’re a Badge Quest Grand Master!

TIP: Check your BADGES tab to determine your current position on the Badge Quest leaderboard.

As a Grand Master, you also qualify for MONTHLY prizes!  Yes, every month that you’re a Grand Master, you’ll automatically receive:

  • 2000 Rewardicals
  • 4 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Grand Master badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport four trophy icons to reflect your elite, level four status in Badge Quest.

LEVEL FIVE (Grand Master Elite)
Level five in Badge Quest is Grand Master Elite.  To attain this highest level in Badge Quest, the total point value of your collected badges must put you in the top 20 of all players.

TIP: Check your BADGES tab to determine your current position on the Badge Quest leaderboard.

As a Grand Master Elite, you also qualify for MONTHLY prizes!  Every month that you’re a Grand Master Elite, you’ll automatically receive:

  • 5000 Rewardicals
  • 5 Entries in the month’s “Badge Bounty”drawing (see details below)

You’ll also receive the Badge Quest Grand Master Elite badge.  Plus, next to your rank badge at the top of the Affiliate Center, you’ll also now sport five trophy icons to reflect your elite, top level status in Badge Quest.

NOTE: PRIZES SUBJECT TO CHANGE


BADGE QUEST BOUNTY

The monthly bounty drawing is one of the most exciting parts of the new Badge Quest game.  It now works like this:

Each month, for every* new badge earned by all SFI affiliates–companywide–SFI will put two Rewardicals** into the Bounty pot (the current pot amount will be displayed on your WIN IT tab), with a guaranteed minimum of 100,000 Rewardicals.

At the end of the month, we will draw 40 winners, who will each receive an equal share of the bounty pot.

*Excludes SFI rank badge and TC member badge–which are awarded automatically to all affiliates.
**SFI reserves the right to adjust the ratio of Rewardicals per badges earned.


One more change…

We’ve determined that having a point value for the actual Badge Quest badges (Rising Star badge, Pro badge, Master badge, Grand Master badge, and Grand Master Elite badge)  create an awkward “catch-22” issue for our players in regards to their level in certain instances.  Therefore, so as to provide an even playing field for all, these badges will no longer have points assigned to them.

New Eager Zebra leaderboards and badges!

To add even more excitement to our online games at TripleClicks, we’re introducing two cool new leaderboards (with matching badges) today!

Eager Zebra Leaderboards 2

 

1. TOP PLAYERS LEADERBOARD

The Top Players leaderboard keeps track of every win for every Eager Zebra game.  A point system is used, with the following values:

  • 20 points for a PTP (Pick The Price) win
  • 500 points for a Time Machine win
  • 50 points for a Knockout Trivia win
  • 15 points for a Knockout Trivia runner-up finish

Note: The Top Players leaderboard begins tracking wins TODAY at 10 AM CT (sorry, prior wins are not included).

BADGES

The world should of course know that you’re a top player in the Eager Zebra game-a-verse.  That’s why the Top Players Leaderboard also come with a great badge:

TopPlayersBadge

  • Earn the basic Trivia Points Leaderboard badge by being in the top 1000
  • Embellish your badge with BRONZE by being in the top 200
  • Embellish your badge with SILVER by being in the top 50
  • Embellish your badge with GOLD (shown) by being in the top 10

2. TRIVIA POINTS LEADERBOARD

Even if you don’t win Knockout Trivia (or future trivia games), you can be racking up trivia points and winning bragging rights and prime spots on the Trivia Points Leaderboard every time you play a trivia game!  For every trivia question you answer correctly, you’ll earn 5 points.  For each medium question, you’ll earn 8 points.  And for each hard question, you’ll earn 12 points.

BADGES

Your awesomeness in trivia knowledge should of course be known to the world.  That’s why the Trivia Points Leaderboard also come with a great badge:

TriviaPointsLB_Badge

  • Earn the basic Trivia Points Leaderboard badge by being in the top 1000
  • Embellish your badge with BRONZE by being in the top 200
  • Embellish your badge with SILVER by being in the top 50
  • Embellish your badge with GOLD (shown) by being in the top 10

HELP YOUR COUNTRY WIN THE GOLD MEDAL!

Silhouettes of People Holding Flags From Various Countries

A fun little feature we’re introducing with our new leaderboards is “country competition.”  On both of our new leaderboards, we’re tracking not only the top and most proficient individual players…but also the COUNTRIES they represent.  Root your country on from the sidelines or, better yet, play Eager Zebra games and help your country score points and dominate the leaderboards!

SPECIAL NOTES:

1. A leaderboard isn’t fair if everyone doesn’t have the same opportunity to compete for the top spots.  So that EVERYONE can compete for even the highest spots on our Eager Zebra leaderboards, all points earned will be halved every 30 days. Example: If you score 200 leaderboard points today, their value will drop to 100 points after 30 days, to 50 points after 60 days, to 25 points after 90 days, and so on.

2. For now, we’re displaying your country’s flag as your individual image on the leaderboards, but we’ve got something even more fun in the pipeline: Be watching for the announcement about getting your own custom avatar to represent yourself in the Eager Zebra game-a-verse.

3. All of your leaderboard badges will be proudly displayed at:

  • Your SFI Homepage
  • Your SFI Leadership Page
  • Your SFI Affiliate Snapshot
  • Your TripleClicks Homepage
  • Your TripleClicks Member TConnect page

Due to popular demand, all badges you earn at TripleClicks will now also display, beneath your SFI badges, at:

  • Your SFI Homepage

  • Your Affiliate Snapshot

Currently there are six badges available:

  • Time Machine Winner
  • Time Machine multi-game Winner
  • Time Machine participant (“in it to win it!” badge) —earn this badge just by playing Time Machine daily
  • Pick The Price Winner
  • Pick The Price multi-game Winner
  • Pick The Price participant (“in it to win it!” badge) —earn this badge just by playing Pick The Price at least once daily

But don’t stop there!  Get ready to start earning lots of new and fun TC badges.  Yes, there’s a whole new TC “badge universe” coming and a cool new “mantel” at TripleClicks to display them to the world, too!  Be watching for the announcements.

We’re also coming out with several new SFI badges soon…and also a new badge design with some exciting new additions and features.  You’re going to love it! Stay tuned!

TIP: Head over to the SFI Forum, to the SFI NEWS DISCUSSIONS section, to discuss this announcement with your fellow SFI’ers.


Member badges to debut at TripleClicks!

Later today, the first of numerous new badges will debut at TripleClicks.  The winner (or winners) of the current Time Machine game, will automatically have this badge added to their TripleClicks homepage (and later on their Member TConnect page too):

Time Machine Winner's Badge

Win Time Machine again, and the badge will read 2-Time Winner (and go up by one for each time you win)!

All of our Eager Zebra games to come will work this same way, with a handsome badge that updates automatically to show the world just how great you are!

But it’s not just game badges that will be available.  Over the coming next months, we’ll be introducing a whole gallery of new badges that you can earn for doing various things around TripleClicks.  Be watching for further announcements on this topic soon.

P.S. Our next Eager Zebra game is coming along great.  And unlike Time Machine, you’ll be able to play this game (each game will last typically less than one hour) multiple times a day…and WIN multiple times a day!  Stay tuned for updates.
