Christmas Comes to YouPlay!

02
Dec
2011
 

By Jessie

We're hanging the mistletoe and getting tipsy on rumballs… the holiday season has arrived at YouPlay!

This year we've got the best ever line up of events, and amazing prizes to be won. In fact, there'll be presents for everyone!

Get ready for a month of marvellous mayhem. Coming soon are the Seven Games of Christmas and the ever-popular Holiday Hunt (launching Tuesday 6th all you Hunt aficionados…)

We’ve got some great prizes in store, including Amazon gift cards, an iPad2, and the chance to see your avatar STAR in a special festive game!

So pop the bubbles and pass around the gingerbread – ho,hoho let's get on with the show!

Avatar Competition

Ever wanted to be a super star? Who hasn't! Personally I've always fancied being a celebrity chef. Or a toothy host flogging ab-blasters and chop-o-matics on the shopping channel. And I know for a fact Dr. Play has a deep, yet sadly unsatisfied desire to form a boy band.

If you crave the spotlight - have we got a competition for you!

Dress-up your avatar in a paparazzi-worthy holiday ensemble, enter your look into the competition, beg, plead and grovel for all your friends to vote for you via Facebook, and get ready for stardom!

The six avatars with the most votes at the end of the competition will STAR in a very special Christmas game, and also receive a YouPlay prize pack.

Read all the competition details here.

HOT TIPS: You must be signed into your YP account to enter and vote . Use our Facebook tool to post your look to your wall and rally your friends to vote for you . Don't forget to vote for your favourite looks  as well!

I love Chistmas, everything about it. The Holiday Hunt is a favourite and I'm looking forward to all the new games. I have a problem though, I've sent through a support ticket but no answer yet. My avatar page will load with the wardrobe options etc but my avatar itelf won't load so I'm not dressed for Chrissy. Still just my plain old everyday self!!! HELP?????

I had the same problem with my avatar that Deb and Stitch had until I noticed the button at the top changing your avatar page that said submit avatar. I hope this helps you folks.

My prize pack arrived today. Chuffed to find a companion for my Chuzzle. The tote bag is going to come in very handy for keeping all my puzzle books in the same place. Thank you very much. Happy New Year to all staff and members, wishing everyone 366 chances to love, laugh, and live their best year yet.

A Chuzzle! Oh I so want another one! I have 5 of them, left over from about 3 years ago, when there was a monthly competition for "...in 50 words or less..." items. What can I do, Jessie, to add to my Chuzzle family? I'm no good at Trivia or Sudoku, but there might be something I could try to win.
