Here's a list of the rest of the prizes for the final buildup to the www.tanga.com launch.

Wednesday - Ipod Shuffle
Thursday - Slingbox
Friday - 3D Settlers (10th Anniversary Version)
Saturday - XBox 360 Premium (Grand Prize)

Note: There is no puzzle for Saturday night - instead, the grand prize winner of the Xbox 360 will be selected from those who have completed all of the puzzles.

Thanks for the fun puzzles and great prizes. Good luck on the launch. Let's see if this posts before the first rant about the prizes not being boardgames.

It's where you store your slings.

Why the heck would anyone want one of those? I never heard of one, and now I know why.

Now that I know what a Slingbox is, I can see that people will be getting even less done at work!

I've been wrong all along - I thought the Settlers 3D would be the big "completed all the puzzles" prize. I'd definetly rather win that than an X-Box! Still, any of these final prizes are pretty cool...except that Sling thing. That looks, err, well, pretty useless. But that's just me

So... is it just a tv card in a box?

EDIT: nevermind. I figured out what it is now.

Maybe this is a dumb question, but if the goal is to create interest in TANGA... why is all of the news about upcoming prizes and Tanga's launch showing up on BGG first?

You'd think that Tanga would, at this point, be the primary source for Tanga-related news...

Here's to Friday's prize!

May the slowest, sorriest, poorest excuse for a puzzle solver win!

At least that way I'd have a chance! shake

You guys are all nuts. You have an Xbox-360 valued at... $499. A slingbox(which is neat) at $179 and then settlers chest at $250 or so depending on where you get it.

So if you win the xbox and are that disappointed, send it to me, I will buy you a settlers chest in return.

Slingbox

This is how one of my friends uses it. He has the slingbox set up in his parent's spare bedroom and he uses it to watch local sports (local to his parents) while he lives in England.

Uh. OK, I'm dense. I don't understand how a Slingbox works even after skimming the site. It takes a cable TV signal and streams it over the Internet to a targeted device? That's OK with the cable company? It doesn't constitute improper use of the signal? Does it require a cable Internet connection? I guess it doesn't matter since I have sworn off cable after OD-ing on the home improvement channel.

Anyway, there's nothing wrong with 2D Settlers, so I guess if I must win something, I'll take the Xbox 360. But I'd take 3D Settlers as a consolation prize.

Because you've been living under a rock?

I have no interest in one but it a fairly popular device.

A slingbox is used for "location-shifting", which is sort of like "time-shifting" which is what we do when we record a TV show and watch it later. (I never watch any TV show when it airs, myself.)
