WOW. That's exactly how everyone here at JIG felt about the response to our Bejeweled 3 netbook giveaway! So many people sent in so many gems, it was great to see everyone having fun solving riddles!
After checking all of the entries, we sat down for that fateful moment when the magic of randomness chose who got to walk away with a Bejeweled-themed netbook. Once the numbers settled, only one name was left:
- Samata K. of Foster City, CA
Congratulations, Samata! We'll be in touch soon with all the fun details about your prize!
While we had our random number mojo going, we also chose three gem matchers to receive free copies of Bejeweled 3:
- Aaron H. of Redmond, WA
- James W. of Lemoore, CA
- Jon R. of St. Paul, MN
Enjoy your free game! We'll be in touch with you three as well!
Everyone did such an amazing job in this contest, finding all of those gems and sending in complete rosters of perfect matches. A huge thank you to everyone who took part in the scavenger hunt! You can bet we'll be doing giveaways again in the future, so don't be surprised to see more riddles. Only this time, they won't be so easy to solve!
And, as promised, below you'll find a list of all the hints and games used for the contest, in chronological order.
