BoardGameGeek and Tanga are having a game-a-day giveaway contest. we're giving away 1 boardgame each day for 30 days until the launch of the site on October 15th.

All you need to do is solve the daily puzzle over at www.tanga.com to be eligible for that day's prize... Make sure to check the new puzzle each day.

The answer to each puzzle is one word.

Many of the puzzles are insidious, so keep at it if at first you don't succeed. The puzzles are provided by a well known game designer... any ideas who?

Please use the spoiler tag if you post anything spoilerish that would spoil it for others... I.e. please don't spoil the answers!

Good luck, and game on!

www.tanga.com

Update: 2 of the 30 prizes will be Roads & Boats (new edition), and Settlers of Catan 10th Anniversary 3-D Special Edition Chest Set

BoardGameGeek is a partner with Tanga

I was wondering what this was all about. First puzzle is pretty easy. Curious to see how difficult they get. Hooray for contests!

I got the first puzzle---fairly straightforward---but I'm not sure how the last clue fits in with the solution. Another puzzle to solve!

Puzzle 1 was easy...but it was weird, why doesn't Tanga say that games are being given away?

And what game is it? That's important. If it's scene it, then I'd rather play under a fake name to make sure I don't win it. But if it's, oh, let's say Roads & Boats, then heck I'll make sure I'm there every day no matter what!

Edit: They do say they're giving away a game a day there, but not whether it's a board game or a video game or what. Hmmm...

Yeah, it sure would be nice to know what they are. If it's video game or CCG or RPG stuff, I sure don't care to waste my time.

But since it's cosponsored by BGG, I will assume they're legit (which is important, since I give them a user name and password and register, y'know).

Hmmm. Prizes for US residents only. I guess I can give my brain a rest, as I'm not in it for just the fame and adoration

Same here. I've never been good at crossword puzzles and such. The clues themselves don't even make sense to me!

It is probably less complicated than you are making it. Remember that you are looking for a single word.

Doing some googling and sifting through the scores of underwear results yielded the following from Jeremy Young of Uberplay:

> My background has been in technology and gaming. I started a Web Hosting
> company called VServers.com back in 1996 and sold it to Micron Electronics
> in 2000. I was also involved in starting SuperStats.com (now Omniture.com).
> I am currently involved in two board game businesses (Uberplay.com and
> SimplyFun.com) and am starting a brand new company called Tanga.com which
> will be run out of St. George and is programmed entirely using Ruby on
> Rails. It is a e-commerce company with a really cool twist.

So I can guess what types of games will be given away. What is done with your registration information I can't say.
