Humble Indie Scramble

ArtbegottiHow would you like a chance to get your hands on the Humble Indie Bundle for free? As luck would have it, we've got a few copies we'd like to give away. As misfortune would have it, there's a wicked little puzzle standing in the way. (Don't worry, it's a fun one though.)

Welcome to the Humble Indie Scramble, a little contest designed to test your puzzling ingenuity and your gaming prowess. For the next few days, we'll throw up an anagram containing the names of three games we've reviewed on this site in the past. We'll also give you three clues to help narrow down the names of the games. For example, as an animal appetizer, consider the following puzzle:

THE PEACE FLOWING FAR

  • An animal with a trunk

  • An animal with a long neck

  • An animal that goes "moo"

Using the letters in "THE PEACE FLOWING FAR", it might be hard to pick out individual animal names, but you can use the clues to figure out that an ELEPHANT has a long trunk, a GIRAFFE has a long neck, and a COW goes "moo". To be entered into the contest, all you would have to do is send us an email with your answers (ELEPHANT, GIRAFFE, COW). We'll randomly pick a winner from all the correct entries, and that lucky duck will get a free copy of the Humble Indie Bundle!

Let's leave the zoo now and get to the main event. Remember, you're looking to make the names of three games from the anagram and clues provided. Here's your puzzle for today:

CRAZY WILL CHECK SKI

  • Dice game where you race your opponent to reach 10,000 points

  • Game with an onomatopoeic title where you create a domino effect using rotating mallets

  • Game where you avoid obstacles while driving an aerial cable car

Think you know the answer? Send the three game titles to us at JIGriddle@casualgameplay.com. Only one entry per person, please. Multiple entries will be disqualified. You must be 13 or older to participate. This contest is not limited to US residents only. The winner will be drawn at random from all correct entries received. You have only until tomorrow, December 26th at 06:00 PM (GMT -5:00), so hurry!

Update: Congratulations to Plisk3n! Your correct entry was chosen at random to receive a Humble Indie Bundle!

Look for the next Humble Indie Scramble riddle.

@The Flash Guy: You're talking about #1, not #2.

This one was easy to solve just by searching for words in the hints.

Well, hopefully the only detail you guys need from me is my email address itself, at least to begin with...

lol I think people are just trolling to win that prize. Pretty lame attempt guys, on Christmas?
The puzzles are easy enough for everyone to find out on their own, don't use any of these hints and use your brain!

Happy Holidays~

It's very satisfying how parts of the puzzle you haven't solved yet become easier once you've solved another part.

Keep that in mind for future riddles. It's a good technique.

I wonder how many of these kind of riddles will be posted in the upcoming days. Jay, maybe you should try this puzzle, in varying stages of difficulty, for other games (maybe 12 different contests, for the 12 days of christmas.)
