I also agree. It's been raining here to-day and I have played the game so much my eyes are blurry. I have gotten over 300,000 points, which compared to the goal, is like comparing 1 penny to $1,000,000. They have to take into consideration the other events they schedule, like the click for trees and the fact that it is summer and people do not want to have to sit behind a computer for hours. I don't think after this weekend, I will participate, until the fall. I feel like we are almost set up to fail. I think Ganz, like in so many other ways, does not understand it's users.

wow @ zeros. I've played a dozen times on several accounts and only voted once pre contest un effort to try and keep goals realistic. Some adjustment needs to be made re summer weekends/unatainable goals

I totally agree... I had a yard sale so I sat with the lap top and played a lot yesterday. I'm amazed at how high the goals are for a summer. Do Fridays count? Maybe they should make the goal for the whole week in the summer time?

The programmers at Gantz do realize this is for kids right? my six year old likes that game but cannot score very high. I think the scores have been astronomically way too high for kids to play. Yes adults play too but give the kids a fighting chance at least. It is disappointing to fail week after week because of unrealistic goals, also I'm sure many people are away it is the summer time.

I also think the Communal Game should be the Game of the Day for the Weekend!

I just e-mailed Ganz the following. They need to get there act together. That KIDS were playing these games and they need to set more realistic goals. I told them, as an adult, I realized, failure was a part of life, but not week after week. This is discouraging to kids, and would make them not even want to try. They won't have anybody playing the CC if they don't lower there expectations. I told them this is supposed to fun, the concept was great, but it wasn't worth the time and effort anymore to see the disappointment on there faces. Hope it helps.

I hope so too. My kids don't want to play the challenge any more.

I try to help out on the challenges for the kids, not because the prizes are neat, because they aren't any longer. The prizes this week aren't even that expensive, yet they set impossible goals. I earn far more in KinzCash playing in the contest than it costs to buy the item, but I know for lots of kids it's important. Unfortunately I was at a wedding all day Saturday and had things to do yesterday and didn't get to participate as much as I typically do, but I agree, Ganz needs to rethink this.

Obviously it shouldn't be a "gimme", because what's the fun in trying to get to something simple? But, you're right, it shouldn't be galactically unattainable. Also, and I know others hav said this, they should make adjustments for holiday weekends and other weekends when they have click to win contests on Webkinznewz, etc.
