Where In SocioTown Am I Winner: Kobejuwan at Redwood Terrace

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

redwood-terrace_kobejuwan

The apartment in yesterday’s Where In SocioTown Am I round is Redwood Terrace! Congratulations to Kobejuwan for figuring it out. He also took a picture of a Socian he found in there. It’s a different kind of hide and seek. :)

The Summer Special Contests end this Sunday. Next week, Where In Socio will go back to normal — no more hide and seek. But who knows what other special editions will come in the future. ;)

End of July! Where In SocioTown Am I?

Friday, July 26th, 2013

where-in-sociotown-am-i-summer4

Step into a crimson forest,

you’ll surely be delighted.

Is there a balcony for leisure and rest?

Oh, it’s only its name and none is sighted.

It’s the end of July, so let’s make this round a bit trickier. You can only see a small part of the apartment’s wallpaper but all the clues you need are in the hints above.

First one to answer the name of the apartment correctly wins 100 SoBucks! Please send your answers to my email at dawn@sociotown(dot)com. Put “Where In Socio” as the subject.

As a bonus, if you find or meet a fellow Socian in the game, take a screenshot and send it to my email for another 50 SoBucks!

boxing-tournament-july-2013

Kobejuwan, one of the game’s Junior Game Guides and a long-time player, enjoys boxing. He often hosts boxing competitions with his fellow Socians. It’s been a while since his last contest, so he decided to have a small tournament with his friends yesterday. Here are the results:

In third place is Hanna12.

Placing second is Karim667.

And the overall winner is (ding, ding, ding) Amarapoy!

Congratulations to the winners and to Kobejuwan for a successful, player-organized event. :)

If you have events like this or even a party you want to share, simply send me a message at the forums or through my email address at dawn@sociotown(dot)com. Wondering how to take screenshots or images from the game? You can use this handy tutorial! Enjoy your day, Socians. :D

Caption Contest (Interview with Phil) Winner: Candice11

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

job-interview

I’m on an interview–

He said, it’s just me and you. Don’t be nervous.

I try to be calm and show my real personality.

Wait! I’ll show my specialty.

- Candice11

Were you worried when you found out you had to go through an interview with Phil? Well, Candice11, our winner for this round of Caption Contest, expressed her thoughts about it. You gotta impress Phil and show him what you can do if you want a good pay! ;) (just kidding)

Congratulations, Candice11! Even though you don’t get a raise from Phil, you get to have a hundred SoBucks! :D

BMAP and Where In SocioTown Am I Winners: Noodles Doodles and Sumayyah

noodles-doodles-vacation

Team Noodles Doodles immediately went on a boat ride to Shaggy’s and won BMAP! Good job, team. I’m sure Shaggy doesn’t mind his unexpected guests. :lol:

For Where In SocioTown Am I, I immediately got an answer mere minutes after I posted it, although a couple of players found the clues tough to figure out. The answer is Craizee Creek and the Socian who first got it right is Sumayyah!

Well done, Noodles Doodles and Sumayyah. Enjoy your prizes. :D
