Kick it, one time, with a new Trends with Benefits, the weekly brainteaser from your friends at TriplePoint! TWB appears every week in our news round-up, Points of Interest, and it offers terrific prizes to readers who can puzzle their way through the challenge du jour. First crack at the prizes go to Points of Interest subscribers when the newsletter goes out on Fridays, but we’ll be sharing each week’s challenge here on our website, as well.
This week’s TWB prize is a copy of Skillz: The DJ Game from the guys at Playpen Studios, which was recently released for the iPad. Will your skillz measure up?
Two Turntables and a Mobile Phone
Hey Mr. DJ, I thought you said we had a deal. You promised, if we got you your own iPad game, you’d download and play it, right away! Well, we came through — our pals at Playpen Studios have released Skillz: The DJ Game on the App Store, and it’s out for iPad right now. Why aren’t you playing it?
Oh. You spent all of your money for the month? You’re not very good with money, are you? Maybe first you should play a little bit of Billz: The CPA Game. Or, you could just win a free copy from us. That might be quicker!
This week’s Trends with Benefits can earn you an iPad copy of Skillz for your very own, if you can identify these oddly similar titles, based on an array of unique premises. We’ve filled out the first couple for you — follow the naming scheme to finish the rest, and you’ll be entered for the only actual game on the list.
