Effective Date: November 8, 2016
Play allows the player to complete jigsaw puzzles by moving oddly shaped, interlocking tiles. Each tile is a small part of the overall picture. When the tiles are correctly arranged, the final image is the complete picture. There is a countdown timer at the top. The user must complete the puzzle before the timer hits 0.00 seconds.
To play the puzzles, you need to use at least 100 chips (or more - depending on the puzzle selected) as an Entry Fee. You must first choose which picture you wish to assemble. The Entry Fee of the puzzle will then be displayed to the player. Once the game starts, you will then see a scrambled version of the picture you chose. Your goal is to assemble the picture in the least amount of time.
Challenge Mode allows the player to challenge his/her friends. The Facebook Friends list will display your Facebook friends who have the “Puzzle THIS!” game installed and have opted to use the Sign In w/ Facebook to register. The Mobile Friends list will display your friends who have opted to use the Sign In w/ Mobile to register. To challenge a friend, select their profile icon in the list. You will then be prompted to start the Challenge and define the number of chips to risk. You will then select a picture that you want them to “puzzle” - this picture can be chosen from your gallery of photos or you can use your mobile phone’s camera and take the photo.
A Challenge is then sent to your friend. Your friend can then Accept/Decline the Challenge. Your friend has 2 days (48 hours) to respond to your Challenge. If they accept, they will need to complete your picture. After they complete your picture, they will select a picture off their phone to have you complete.
The person with the faster time wins the Challenge and is awarded all the chips at risk.
Compete Mode allows the player to compete against people from around the world. There are 6 rooms available to the player - each room has a different amount of chips to be risked. For example, if you go into the 100 Chips room, you are risking 100 chips against the other player.
After you go into a room, you first need to select a picture that you want to use in the Competition. This is the picture your competitor will need to “puzzle.”
The game will then search and see if a Competitor exists. If so, the game will match you with that Competitor. If not, the game will state ‘No Competitor found, but we will notify you when a match is found.’ A push notification will be sent to you when a Competitor is found.
After the game matches you with a Competitor, you will compete with that player - similar to Challenge Mode. The faster time wins the total chips at risk.
To see what contests are running, click on the Contests menu at the top right. Once you go into that menu, there are 3 types of contests - Practice, Challenge, and Invites.
In Play Mode, after you solve a puzzle, the time it took you to complete the puzzle, your current ranking, the 1st place time, and how many times the chosen puzzle has been completed are shown.
The ranking of Contest winners (typically top five times) will be based on the fastest times completing the puzzle within the Contest period. An example of a contest period would be three months from January 1, 2016 to March 31, 2016.
A player can only have one place in the rankings and this is determined by their fastest time in completing the puzzle. The top five winners will win the corresponding prizes stated for the running Contest.
The Challenge contests reference the Leaderboards. Let’s discuss the CHIPS Leaderboard. In order to win this contest, we look at the player who has accumulated the most amount of chips during the contest period. We do NOT determine the winner off of simply the total amount of chips. We may run those contests in the future, but they will be clearly specified.
You can also participate in the Invites contests by inviting your friends and family to play "Puzzle THIS!". The person that you invite MUST use your unique Referral Code in order for you to receive credit. A Referral Code is an alphanumeric code found in your profile screen. To retrieve it, simply go to the upper left menu and click on “Profile”.
There are 4 types of Invites contests - Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Quarterly. The ranking of Contest winners will be based on who invites the most people to the game - credit is given to the player when the new player uses their Referral Code. An example of a contest period would be three months from January 1, 2016 to March 31, 2016. The number of Referrals are reset at the end of each time period.
The referred user must enter the Referral Code when creating their new "Puzzle THIS!" account. No credit will be earned if the person you referred fails to enter your unique Referral Code.
To participate in the "Puzzle THIS!" Contests, you must have an existing "Puzzle THIS!" account and be a natural (individual) person of 18 years of age or older, or of legal age according to your own local and/or state laws.
