Everyone knows that the festive season is a time for giving: think of Good King Wenceslas, Santa, the Three Kings, Madonna and Bono. Z/Yen is honouring that tradition and getting into the generous yuletide spirit by giving away up to £50,000 pounds worth of prizes/donations to the ExtZy community.
The Great Big Do-Nation via Z/Yen's festive e-card this week has propelled many more players who will be battling it out on the virtual ExtZy floor. Shares from the "Countries" leader-board (yes, you've just uncovered the pun in the title) are being "given-away, absolutely given-away" to members of the Z/Yen community ( up to 10,000 people will have received this offer, but not all will be sensible enough to take it up).
Country shares were chosen to reflect today's globalising, interconnected world at a rare time of the year when a significant proportion of the global population of over 6 billion people are engaged, albeit perhaps commercially, in celebrating "Christmas" (with or without the Christian connotation). The randomly allocated shares will become active upon registration. These players will have had a head-start in their portfolio building - so current players must be wide-eyed and bushy-tailed for the gaming ahead!
Once you have gained enough Zoints, you can claim real prizes – ranging from a £300 iPod to a pair of deluxe chopsticks. You can choose to convert your prizes into donations to the registered UK charity of your choice; so far 50% of prize money awarded has gone to charity. At this season of goodwill, we hope to see the charitable percentage go up.
Whether you want to win valuable prizes or do your bit for charity, join the Great Big Do-Nation and enjoy the festive season by playing ExtZy.
