Is anyone else super bad at the Gumball Blitz game? My goodness, I have failed at it so many times already! The other one I did the first try and it was easy. I finally figured out that the points that you need 15 of come only when the ball bounces against the top or bottom thing, but I'm still not good at it. I guess I might be by September 20...or else have given up long ago! ;)

Stupid question, where do you input the answer for the 1st question of the week? Am I missing something or is it just not unlocked yet?

Nope should be there. It should be the first circle you click on. I entered it last night but now on my page it shows as locked.

Ya weird, it's locked for me as well and I haven't entered it yet. That's why I was so confused where I was supposed to enter. I can only play the 2 games.
Hopefully they fix it.

May be a glitch. On my board I can only play the last game. Everything else is locked.

The ice chip game is awful. Many tries to get my two entries for the day.

You can only answer the question once a week (if you get it wrong, it lets you try again in 24 hours). Click on the flag for trivia question.

Interesting. It's now working for me. Wasn't this morning.

Yes, it should be clearer about how you earn the points. I think the best strategy is to try to stay in the middle as much as possible and only go for the points when somewhat clear, I think you get trapped by the rebound screens otherwise.

EDIT: Damn it! I finally got to 30 points and it didn't give me the 2 entries!!!

Is there a point to playing the games past the second entry? Like in the gumball blitz I was able to get to around 70 before I lost and the game kept spewing out more ice chunks. Is there a secret prize or something if I get to a certain number?

You can only get max 2 entries /game/day (total 4 entries per day). Anything else is just practice. ;)

almost a week at it and finally hit 15 - tried with Chrome and IE, I found I had a bit more control using IE.
