No, sir or madame, I do not wish to engage in fisticuffs with you! I am merely informing you of Dumbville, a game on Facebook full of quirky questions and minigames to test your mental aptitude.
When you first start, you are a Village Idiot. As you pass each level, you are one step closer to becoming Town Mayor (but if you think about it, do you really want to be Mayor of Dumbville?). As an additional incentive to play, each level completed earns you Oodles, points that are redeemable for real prizes. Each time one of your friends fails a level, you get 5 Oodles (so invite the friends that are less than clever, that’s my strategy).
You can redeem your prizes at GSN.com. Though the concept of playing online games for prizes makes me think of Chuck E. Cheese’s for shut-ins, the prizes are actually not bad. Prizes include a pair of Sony Wireless Headphones for 67,500 Oodles, a subscription to Game Informer for 23,500 Oodles, Apples to Apples for 23,500 (I’ve got my eye on this one), and much more!
Log on to Facebook and take a tour through Dumbville. If you’re not a fan but are interested in getting Oodles (Puns!), there are always other places besides Dumbville to get them.
