bontegames action: win a set of bucky balls

Bucky Balls are 216 powerful rare earth magnets that can be shaped, molded, torn apart and snapped together in unlimited ways. Think of a Rubik's cube that actually makes you smarter, a hula hoop you don't look ridiculous playing with, silly putty that isn't silly, cram it all in a jar, turn the fun up to 11, and you've got Bucky Balls!


Getting excited yet? Would you like to win a set? Well here's your chance: GetBuckyBalls.com was kind enough to give away 3 sets to the BonteGames visitors, each worth $24.95! All you have to do is answer the following question:

How many levels are there in my game Factory Balls 2?

Mail your answer to bontegamesaction@yahoo.com (one person, one mail). The contest closes next Tuesday July 7 and the 3 winners will be picked at random. Good luck!

FIRST! o yeah. This is the second time so far ive been first, the other time was with that game "who am i?" earlier this month... you know, the one with the option to play in Japanese and the catchy music. :)

oh by the way... for those of you who are too lazy to actually play the game, you can either find a walkthrough or count the balls in the tumbler. (thats what I did)

no spoilers please Jake :)

Warning (not to rain on anyone's parade): if you have small kids you probably don't want these magnets. When kids swallow magnets they can stick to each other in the digestive system, which is very unsafe. (There's a warning about this on the Buckyball website, not for children under 12.)

But this is a very nice offer, Bart, and thanks again for a wonderful website!

Lilian said...

Not for children under 12? You think kids that are in an age like 8 to twelve are so stupid they will eat it. My brother on six wouldnt even do it. Anyways, this is really awesome Bart, thank you.

I don't think my kids would eat them, I think they would throw them.

10 minutes and those things would be all over my house.

"216 powerful rare earth magnets"

216 and rare. Isn't that an oxymoron?

That's what the company's website says, not necessarily what I would've said.

Margaret said...

Oooh! That's just so very cool. I'm just lucky Factory Balls 2 is one of my favorites and I play it all the time. Very relaxing.

Mail sent. *crosses fingers*

And they're called rare-earth because not many elements make these magnets and they are difficult to mine and process.

Annananana...etc... said...

wow... looks like fun. And people, don't be too lazy to play Factory Balls 2... it's a really challenging game (for some). Let your minds grow.

Bart said...

Saevitia said...

what's the price's kind of money? (I mean dollar, euro...)

Because I'm Argentinian and here we manage with pesos...

Anonymous said...

I did the math Saevitia... in pesos they cost 327.38.

Saevitia said...

Wup!
Thank you Jake!

(So...it is in dollars, isn't it?)

yeah.

yay! I played it again, and it still feels fresh as the first time. Now for the mail.. tatatatatan :P

Swati said...

Excited? Yes, of course! So much so that I sent off a mail before reading the comments. Had I done so, I would have known -

1. not for kids
2. shipping free global

Not that point one makes much difference save stripping me of an excuse! But the second makes me more eager!

And uh, it is such a cute game: do play it to the full!

Anonymous said...

I am very sorry that in my second comment I told you a way to cheat. I didn't realize how wrong that was until Annananana...etc... and Swati said that you should actually play it instead of finding a walkthrough. Now I agree with them. I apologize to anyone who took my advice and feels guilty about cheating.

Thnks Bart for letting me know about this amazing toy! even if i don't win i think i'll buy it :D

PrincessHemeckoEmma said...

I think its awsome only I want to know if I can get it at the store like at walmart or at target so that my mom can look at it and see if i can have it. And if it does say children 12 and up well my mom probobly will not get it because i have a 3 year old at my house.

At 1:08 the thing he makes looks cool. I wish I had some but it's too late- also what's with the last soundtrack with a guy screaming?
