SCT XXVII vs Holiday Hunt

04
Dec
2008
 

By Jessie

In the green corner, Sudoku Combat Tournament XXVII hulks menacingly, ripped abs glistening; biceps splitting lurid lycra at a flex...

In the blue corner a (somewhat holey) Holiday Hunt dances a cheerful little jig, tiny fists raised in defiance against the giant SCT beast.  

What on earth am I on about? Nope, I haven't been "testing" the cooking sherry again (although it IS my solemn duty to protect Dr. Play from any murderous poisoners). In fact, today is extra-special as two very exciting events face off for your attention.

First, Sudoku Combat Tournament XXVII is now open. Enter the Arena of Champions for 24 hours of amazing multiplayer Sudoku action. Choose from one of four difficulty levels, then challenge an opponent in real-time and battle it out for eternal SC fame and glory. Token prizes are up for grabs (for top 3 rankings on each of the four leader boards). This event is open until midday, Friday 5th (AEDST), get in quick and show off your skills!

Enter the Arena of Champions NOW

Also launching today is the (now quite famous) YouPlay Holiday Hunt - 2008. Your mission is to sift through the pages of YouPlay to uncover each of the 20 items missing from our beautiful Christmas vista. Ten Lovatts magazine covers and ten holiday items have disappeared – can you find them all?

When you discover a new item, click on it with your mouse. You will know if you have already found that particular item because nothing will happen. If it is a new addition to your collection, you will automatically be taken to this page, and the object will appear in the Christmas scene. The first 250 YouPlay members to successfully find all 20 hidden objects will receive a special Christmas gift from Lovatts publications.

Visit the Holiday Hunt home page

YouPlayers: I challenge you to choose your main attraction!
(Disclaimer - of course, you are free to enjoy both events but only with a comparable sense of "drama".)
