Where was this posted? Didn't see it on the Newz site. played a lot yesterday and since it wasn't even half full on the gauge I knew it was too high a goal to make. Hopefully they will figure out something a bit more realistic next week.

I totaly agree with you dragonbird. Thanks Ganz for your admission. Anyone working with computers knows that there is often a big differnece between the trial version and when it goes into production (hence all the the glitchs). Give Ganz a chance and see what happens to next weeks challenge.

Thanks for the welcome, Gmagator! Our entire family wasted almost the entire day yesterday. Finally, we noticed that the 'progress bar' on the communal contest page had barely moved. Yes, it was a total waste. How disappointing that Ganz set a goal of 6 billion as a communal score.

I admire those who are more charitable than I am, but I have little patience, and whoever was responsible for setting a goal of 6 billion...well what can I say without going off a tangent and rant?

When I added up the scores we were doing pretty good at an average of a little over 5,000 points per game.

But 6 BILLION? No way as a group can we get that high considering younger children get so very frustrated and the older kids simply got bored and wanted to do chores to get a new pet instead of 500 KC.

The kids had a good argument on that but I keep playing on all accounts any way. Gotta give it the best shot to say "Hey I really, really tried".

My 11yr old pointed out "if you want kinz cash then play the game you get high scores in and you will have more money".

Congrats to all WI and WW members who have been playing and playing this weekend! You all deserve an A+ for effort!
You're 11 yr old is quite intelligent! If I want 500 kc it's faster to play Quizzy's in the tournament arena for maybe 10 minutes. Then I can spend another 15 - 20 minutes playing the trading card game and easily earn over 600 kc. Not sure how Ganz thought 500 kc was worth all the time and effort it would have taken every single registered account to reach the 6 billion goal.

I'm not a fan of Goober's Lab anyway. To me and my kids, it's just tedious.

UPDATE (Feb 27th, 8:30pm ET): Ganz has released the following statement regarding this week's contest: "Looks like we made our first Communal Contest too difficult. Our formula was clearly off. We'll be making next week's challenge easier."


Gotta start somewhere.
I thought it was only 6 million points at first. 6 billion, though? No wonder this is hard. LOL!

i am glad that ganz has admitted their error in picking such an unreasonable amount of points.
i think that what they should do is just give the 500kc to all who did participate, since they were trying to make the communal project a good thing.

Much better prizes are what is needed. Like the kid said, you can earn 500 cash in 10 minutes playing on your own. A pair of ears or a lava or a witch hat and it would have gone over 6 billlion. Ganz, give us something to play for!!!!

I think that Ganz overlooked the fact that many people have more than one account. I know people with 10 accounts. I, myself, have three. You can only play one account at a time. I played many games and I only got over 10,500 points one time. Many times the game stopped at 5,000.
Looking forward to what they come up with next.

I'm totally with you guys. I just hope we get the 500KC as a courtesy gift anyways. everybody who played deserves it! I voted for the bed but hey, I wanted to participate.

maybe we have a better challenge next week.

Miss Spots, what a great idea! I agree with you 100%. I'm thinking of all the time I played Goober's Lab this weekend for the communal cause and how discouraged I was when it didn't look as though it mattered. I think some kind of reward is in order for those who worked so hard. Also, some may just give up and say the communal contests are impossible. I'll probably give it another try, though.
