Here's a fun new spin on our arcade games.

I just installed a brand new game called Free Frosty (http://www.sunshinerewardsforum.com/arcade.php?&act=Arcade&do=play&gameid=166). Everyone is welcome to play this game between now and 9am Eastern on Monday. At that time, I will look at the high scores list. The top 8 scorers will be invited into a tournament. The tournament will have standard rules (you get 2 tries per round and are kicked out if you do not play your round within 24 hours). The winner of the tournament will receive a $10 Amazon gift certificate.

Here's the only catch. You MUST post in this thread that you want to be eligible and certify that YOU are playing. Not your kids, not your husband or wife. The Sunshine Rewards member who owns the account.

So post if you want to be eligible and get playing!

I'm not sure- this is my first tournament. You won your first round and should advance- do you have any private messages? Will the game let you play again? Someone else posted that they thought they tournament looked broken, but I'm not sure what's going on.

I played both games...no private messages....and I'll check again, but earlier it wouldn't let me play again.

Ok....I went and lost...what's the secret?!?!?!?!? :rotfl:

Susianew
12-10-2007, 04:30 AM
I just combined a lot of the info already out there & after way, way, way too much practice, came up with a game plan. I hope my directions make sense!

***The secret is to use the Candy Canes sequentially to totally clear the board*** This gives you a 1000pt bonus on level 1, 2000 on level 2, and 3000 on level 3. (4000 on level 4 and 5000 on level 5 too, but I rarely go for the clear on levels 4&5- since there is an extra color (dark blue) on those levels, it's much harder to clear. On levels 4&5 I try to knock blocks as fast as possible & save the candy cane for emergency situations when the blocks are too high & for the very end to maximize the bonus.)

Usually I aim for a score of 15000 after level 1, 35000 after level 2, and 60000 after level 3.

SO:
1- In order to get a candy cane you have to knock out, with one click, 9 same-colored blocks. When level 1 comes up, the first thing I do is little clicks to make a group of nine & knock it out.

2. Once I have my candy cane, for instance, a yellow candy cane, I try to find/make a group of 9 out of one of the OTHER colors, red for example. This group needs to be intact, OR created when the space bar is hit the yellows are cleared. When I am looking for my second 9-block group, I preferentially knock out the same color of my candy cane, in order to keep the other 2 colors plentiful.

3. Once I have identified my new group of 9, I wait for the row to finish loading. As soon as the last new block shows up on the bottom right & gets bumped up, you have to move FAST!

4. Hit the space bar- this clears all the candy cane color(yellow)
5. Click on your second color's (red) 9 block group- this gives you a red candy cane.
6. Immediately hit the space bar- this clears the remaining second color (red) blocks.
7. You are now left with only 1 color-light blue- click on that & the level is clear (bonus!) PLUS if there were at least 9 blocks of the third color, you'll get a blue candy cane.
8. If you have a candy cane, go back to step 3 and repeat.
9. If no candy cane, restart at step 1

So I guess the big secret is just the fast space bar-click-space bar-click that has to be completed before the next row loads.

Also, I always watch the "rows left" box- once the 2 rows left line is done I use the candy cane and try to knock out as many blocks as possible, to get the stack down & maximize the end of round bonus.,

Hope this makes sense!!

Makes sense to me - that's very similar to what I've been trying to do - but not with the same success... great job!!!

Thanks for all that info. Maybe now I can get out of the 60,000!!! Does Frosty actually ever get free????

I too was trying to play on my laptop and it just wasn't happening. I finally switched to our pc and it made a huge difference with the mouse...much quicker clicking and spacebar ratio for me... HTH
