Default Club Live

In its desperation to wage holy war against Google, Microsoft's giving away some sweet prizes.

If you go to club.live.com, you can play little search games for 3, 10, and 25 points a pop and trade them in for gear. The time investment isn't too big; it takes me about 4-10 minutes to complete a 10pt game of Clink.

Prizes you can win include:
XBox Controller - 2500 pts
Full XBox 360 - 35000 pts
Office Ultimate - 9000 pts

These are achievable goals. I've been playing since yesterday and already have 200 pts for a couple hours of playing.

So, if you're bored, get a free Xbox in a few months.

Nifty. The crossword game on there is pretty fun and I've racked up 447 points so far on that one alone in my free time over the last two days.

Sweet Jesus.

If my calculations are correct, at 25 points per game it would take 1,400 games to earn that. And at a low estimate of 5 minutes per game, it would take about 5 solid days to earn it. But still... I'm considering just going for it.

Good promotion, though. Most of the prizes actually seem attainable.

Join the club. As soon as I saw this post yesterday, i started playing, and that's all i've been pretty much doing when I'm on the computer. Only have about 500 points now.


Slow and steady wins the race, or something like that. 360 here I come.
