What is another word for 'extricate'?


Winners are Grinners!


By Jessie

Two exciting competitions have come to an end and it’s time to share the highlights and announce the lucky winners!

Christmas TRIVIA COMBAT Tournament

Wow! What a truly phenomenal event our very first TRIVIA COMBAT Tournament turned out to be. Thousands of daily plays ensured the festive-themed game rocketed to the top of the “Most Popular Game” list – and pretty much remained there for the entire week.

Interesting Tournament Stats Include:

- Over 45,000 total games played!

- Each YouPlay member who entered played an average of 30 games per day!

- YouPlayers came from far and wide to take part. Countries represented included Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Austria, Malaysia, Belarus, Maldives, China, Papua New Guinea, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Singapore and Italy! 

- First position on the leader board went to debjoker, who managed to win an astounding 766 games! Special mention to second place holder bika for winning 644 games and Erpgirl, who came in third with 438 victories. Seriously – you are trivia superstars.  

Of course, TRIVIA COMBAT fans are a competitive bunch and there was more at stake than just personal honour. Congratulations to the YouPlayers who literally battled it out for days on end to earn a place in the top 20 – you are all eligible for a prize. If you think you are a prize winner, visit the final Tournament leader board now. If your name appears, you will also be able to view a message asking you to submit your name details. Once I receive the completed form I can post your prize. Yay!

The Christmas edition of TRIVIA COMBAT will remain available to play until Dec 25th.



Christmas Holiday Hunt

Well don’t we all just love a Treasure Hunt! This year’s forage-fest was more popular than ever, with thousands of YouPlayers searching high and low for the 20 icons needed to complete their lovely Christmas vista.

Congratulations to the Grand Prize winner – Addy – who will be shortly receiving a very merry $500 prize in the mail! Our four $50 VISA Gift card winners are Epicondyle, kirsty27xXxDiVampxXx and robert36 – your prizes are also on the way!

Halfway through the Holiday Hunt I managed to wrangle 50 Runners-Up prizes from our fabulous friends at Lovatts. You can find out if you’ve won one by reading the final list here.

If you haven’t yet found all 20 items and can’t bear the thought of missing the final one or two, never fear. The icons will remain hidden around the site until Dec 25th.

How exciting to win something! I enjoyed playing the Christmas Trivia and some combat sessions had me on the edge of my chair! The little chats were fun too... Thanks to YP and all the other players, especially bika who gave me quite a run to the finish line. No doubt we all know a lot more about Christmas now! Wishing everyone a Gese├źnde Kersfees en 'n Gelukkige Nuwe Jaar!

My gift arrived Friday, thanks. Not puzzles I usually do so the variety is good for stretching the brain.
