Special BMAP Round for May!

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

bring-me-a-picture

Time sure flies fast! It’s the end of May, and BMAP has a special round every last Sunday of the month. BMAP special rounds are not called special for nothing — this means more than one can win in this round, so long as you submit before this round ends. So, wanna earn some quick SoBucks? Ready your screenshot buttons, BMAP-ers! ;)

For this special BMAP round, snap and send a screenshot of you doing your favorite game activity near a bunch of flowers. Whether you’re sleeping, boxing, swinging your net or munching down BD’s burgers, do it near some flowers and snap a screenshot!

If you don’t know how to take a screenshot, you can visit this handy online guide (do take note that ST and OTBS are not affiliated with it; please practice caution when following guides, so as to not harm your computer). Send your entries to my email address at dawn @ sociotown (dot) com, with the subject BMAP: Flowers and your full SocioTown name.

Since this is a special round, there will be more than one winner. If you followed the instructions correctly, you will be included in the list of winners and get 50 SoBucks. This BMAP round expires next Sunday or when I post the new round. Send your entries before then to be included in the list of winners.

Enjoy the flowers! :D

Weekend Shopping Guide (May 23 - 25) : Superhero Outfits and Villain Lair Items

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Feeling a bit super? Grab some incredibly super outfits at Trendiiz and Gee Cue this weekend! The entire Buggirl and Bugman outfits are featured, so if you’ve always wanted to patrol the town at night or be the defender of the bugs, here’s your chance. If you like to be the hero that Burger Despot needs, serve the town-famous Transfat Burger with the Burger Hero outfit. :D

But if being a superhero isn’t your style, decorate your room to look like a villain’s lair with the items at Franklin’s Furniture. A bloodied couch, bed with a skull design, and a scary looking fireplace? Now that’s villain-y spooky! :lol:

Have fun shopping!

Evening BMAP: Explore the town like a Super Hero!

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

bring-me-a-picture

Inspired by the latest Bugman Returns trailer, today’s BMAP will let you become the super hero the town needs. Protect the town at night from hooligans and mischievous players!

So for this BMAP round, bring me a picture of you and a sidekick (another player) running around town at night and shouting “We will protect SocioTown!”

If you don’t know how to take a screenshot, you can give this online guide a go (do note that ST and OTBS are not affiliated to said guide; please practice caution when using the guide to not have any computer problems). Send your entries to my email address at dawn @ sociotown (dot) com, with the subject BMAP: Super Hero. Include your full SocioTown names.

The first correct entry I get will win 50 SoBucks each to its entrants. Please check here or in FB if the round is already over (that means I got a winning entry already in my email). This round will expire when I get a winning/correct entry or on next Sunday, when I post the new BMAP round.

Good luck, super heroes! ;)
