Let’s Enjoy Summer One Last Time!

Friday, August 15th, 2014

summer2014contestbanner

Summer’s ending, but that doesn’t mean we have to be sad about it! Let’s enjoy one last summer fun, before the season totally fades away, with these contests.

So if you just want to have some fun, instead of working to earn some SoBucks, this is a quick remedy for that. :)

bmap-super-team-banner

Bring me a super picture! This contest has been extended until the end of August, so it’s not too late to send in a super duper entry. Unlike a regular BMAP round, where only one entry can win, all entries submitted to this super round are eligible to win — so long as your picture followed the rules! Click here to know more details.

***

fill-that-bubble-1

See that blank bubble? It’s pretty blank, huh. But do you see that totally rare Burger Despot skirt? Now that’s what I’m talking about!

If you want your very own Burger Despot skirt or pants, come up with a line for that blank speech bubble up there. Comment your entry directly to the image (it’s in Facebook) and the best two entries will be picked next week. More info here.

***

swimsuit-mix-and-match-banner

The crystal waters of the lake district call to us… to get our beach wear and partyyyy!

Mix, match, randomize and go fashionably crazy! Pair your colorful swimming suits with cute shorts, cool sandals, and more.

Once you have come up with an outfit that you want for this contest, you can snap a screenshot (tutorial here) and send it to me (dawn @ sociotown dot com) OR inform me through email/pigeon mail/forum message that what you’re wearing is your entry (I will take a screenshot myself and then inform you — make sure you don’t change your outfit unless I inform you that I took a screenshot already).

If you do email me your entry, don’t forget to include your full SocioTown name and your PR status (PR or Non-PR). Two winners from each category will be announced at the end of the month (two PR winners and two Non-PR winners).

The prize? 150 Sobucks!

***

summer-garden

You can make it look like it’s always sunny and fresh in your room with a potted plant or two. With this contest, you can get creative with the plants!

Design one room in your apartment to look like a garden. Snap a screenshot (tutorial here) and send it to my email (dawn @ sociotown dot com) or inform me that you have a room in your apartment that you want to join for this contest (I will visit and take a screenshot myself).

If you happen to email me, don’t forget to include your full SocioTown name and your PR status (PR or Non-PR). One PR and one Non-PR winner will be picked at the end of the month.

The winners will get a prize of 200 SoBucks!

BMAP: Super Team for August! (UPDATE INSIDE)

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

bmap-super-team-banner

Let’s enjoy summer one last time! And wouldn’t it make the celebration extra special when we spend it with friends? :D

For the next five Sundays this whole month of August, we’ll be having a group BMAP. Gather four friends and create a super team that will dominate the BMAP game once and for all!

To join:

1. Form a BMAP team of 4 members. Minimum of two game guides (senior or junior) in each team. (UPDATE: Just a clarification: you don’t need to have two game guides in your team to join. Everyone is welcome to form a team, with or without any guides. But if game guides want to form a team, there should only be two game guides allowed per group)

2. Don’t forget to include the complete SocioTown names of your members in your email for every entry.

3. Follow the instructions posted. If you bring me a picture that doesn’t follow all the details, then the entry will be disqualified.

4. Have fun with your teammates!

So let’s get started: bring me a picture of your team shouting your team name in the middle of the park. You all have to say/type it, but it doesn’t have to be in all caps (it’s up to you).

To capture a screenshot, you can refer to this helpful guide I found online (do note that it is not under OTBS or SocioTown; use with care). Send your entries to my email address at dawn @ sociotown (dot) com, with the subject BMAP: Super Team so I’ll know it’s for this round. Again, don’t forget to include the complete list of names of your team. UPDATE: This round expires at the end of the month, August 31.

Since we didn’t have a special end-of-the-month round last week, let’s move it to this round. That means every entry I receive for this round will receive a prize! That’s right, you each get 50 SoBucks for a successful and correct entry.

So gather your friends, form a BMAP super team, and earn some SoBucks together! Summer’s ending, but it doesn’t mean we can’t have one last summer fun. :)

Special BMAP Round for June!

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

bring-me-a-picture

Every last Sunday of the month, BMAP will have a special round. That’s right, this one’s special, which means we’ll have more than one winner!

For this BMAP round, find someone wearing an Uncle Sam Hat and take a screenshot with them.

If you don’t know how to take a screenshot, you can refer to this online tutorial (do take note that it is not part of OTBS or SocioTown; follow the instructions carefully). Send your entries to my email address at dawn @ sociotown (dot) com.

Take note that only you will get a prize, not the player with the hat. The good side is, there will be more than one winner/winning entry; as long as your entry meets the instructions above and send it before the next BMAP round is posted, you will be included in the list of winners for this round. Tell your friends so they can win some SoBucks, too! :D
