Hi everybody :trumpet: Lets try this post again but with out the forums database crash.

I wasn't sure if I should have posted this here or in the game section but choose to post it here because more people will see this here than in games.

You haven't seen me around much for the last week or so because of what I am about to post.

MSN has a game site called Live Search Club where you receive points for playing their word games. When you have enough points you can redeem them for prizes ranging from ring tones, music downloads, tee shirts, XBox and PC games and Microsoft hardware & software all the way up to an Xbox 360.

I waited to post this to make sure it was on the up and up and it is. I have just received via FedEX my free full version of Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate today. This is MS's top of the line Vista package, the software has a price tag of $400.00 and all it took me was about a total of about twenty five hours of playing word games (which I enjoy anyway) to earn it. Shipping and handling was also paid for by Microsoft, you can't get any better than that. :thumbsup:

Here is the URL to the Search Clubs home page, you can sign up there. You can play the games without one but you must already have or you must create a Windows Live ID account to earn points for redemption, but this is free to do so no loss there.

Here is a link to the prizes currently being offered:

Here is a site that I use to help find all the words for the games:

http://www.a2zwordfinder.com/literati.html (This site is especially helpful for the Chicktionary game.)

The game that seems to have the the most points available is the Flexicon game, 25 points a game and enough games in the system to earn 5800 points. My advice would be to play that game until you max out the points and then move on to the others as you wish. Also do not quit any games, close out the screen instead if you have to quit, once you quit the game you can not go back to it and will lose any points you missed.

For those who choose to partake in this offer, have fun and good luck.

See You around :flowers:

Ron

Man I had a huge response to this, will say it again :sigh:. I valued the point on this club to the XBox 360's point value. Each point is worth 1.14 cents. If you earn 40 points every five minutes, you earn $5.47 an hour, not too shabby for the unemployed. IRONY ALERT Vista costs $400, the 360 costs $400, but Vista is worth 6000 points, while the 360 is worth 35k points wow! So all you have to do is win Vista, sell it on eBay, buy a 360. WHen a point is valued to vista, it comes to around 6.6 cents per point. Do the math again, when trying to win Vista you are earning a whopping $15.84 an hour!! Play NOW PLAY NOW PLAY NOW PLAY NOWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
