    A friend just won me a Wii!!!! YAY!!!!!!
  • Keeys
    Just won a $200 Myer voucher whoo!!!
  • yovi
    Wow...congrats. I've been trying for 2 days now and haven't won anything :( What's your tricks Keeys?
  • Keeys
    Not idea lol Yesterday someone won when clicking onme so nothing to do with me and tonight was a total fluke...the kids had been playing they stopped so I thought I'd have a go down the list, I was only half watching and saw the blue moving forwardand was like WHAT THE?? as it fell into the shute!! I'm still in shock!!! If you want more friends let me know I'm happy to add to my list and my son has just signed up so he can play aswell. GOODLUCK!!
  • leny
    Has your pulse gone down yet.. :D
  • Keeys
    Yep ready for another day :):)
  • yovi
    Keeys, did you start by accumulating tokens? is it true that the more tokens you have, the more chances you'll get to win some of the prizes?
  • melissanj
    haha i can just see me sitting on the computer with a strong coffee at 3 am trying to get me a prize lol
  • Keeys
    The tokens are only of use if you are one of the top 5. I never bothered because I figuredto be in with a chance you'd need LOTS of friends and you'd also need to spend ALOT of time playing like almost all the time! I just play for fun. The kids play if I'm busy and to stop arguments we now have a second account so they can both play atm the same time if I'm busy. They play allot more than I do. I get boredto quickly lol Leave your screen running through even if your not at yourcomputer this gives yourfriends more play buttons as well as a chance for you to win. I wasn't at my PC the other day when friend won the wii I was doing the school pickup ;) GOODLUCK!!
  • melissanj
    im more then happy to be on someones friend list :) just let me know and i can add you or vice versa
  • thanratt
    Fantastic news melissanj. Always good to hear a fellow buckscooper has had a great win. Very kind of you to offer to add others to your friends list - wish I had time, but good luck for winning more prizes :)
  • melissanj
    Just thought id check to see if anyone knew if you can win things when signed up in your normal msn when ur not playing. it seems we can play with anyone online, so does that mean those not "participating" still win a prize?? hope this makes sense!

  • Gallifrey
    Hey Keeys, you are doing great, well done!!
  • melissanj
    lol how do you do it keeys!!! ive strained my back trying to win something!! i need some of your luck!
  • Keeys
    it was just that pure luck. When I won today I'd only just started to play after having a nap for 3hrs. I'm not feeling well so thought I'd just park myself on the lounge with my laptop and tv remote ;) So no tips or hints it really just is luck or timing. My kids have been playing more than me and not won a thing :(
  • melissanj
    aw hope you feel better soon, and next time you play, play with me!!!!!! ;)
  • Gallifrey
    Keeys, play with me too, I need some luck this way!! :D
  • Keeys
    I've been playing you Gall infact you were one off earlier you were the person I played before I won :( so close...maybe next time ?? Fingers crossed!!
  • queenshrew
    I've been playing on and off since yesterday..and haven't won a thing! How frustrating lol! :D
  • lilpretzel
    I think it all comes down to how many you have on your msn, I know there are numerous large lists of members being added to msn ;) Good Luck! :)
  • Gallifrey
    Oh thanks Keeys, so close! If we all keep trying sooner or later we must win something, fingers crossed lol Although, really out of everyone in Aust playing, you just have to be the right player at the right time to win due to it being a computer program. I have won a few tokens, just need to get the bigger prizes to stick!! :rolleyes:
  • golfwidow

  • golfwidow
    Does anyone know what the numbers on the far left hand side next to peoples names mean?
  • lilpretzel
    It tells you how many times that person has played for you ;) Not that is 100% accurate :D
  • Keeys
    no where near being accurate :(
  • cloudyclutz
    i have been soo close so many times now - its driving me crazy! i had the $1000 and then it starts to wobble to one side and even though it is perfectly stuck on both sides of the magnet - it drops off - arghhh - still trying though! any more wins keeys?

  • mariaa
    Hey im new to this and don't know how to PM. Im addicted to friend magnet but only winning tokens. PM me if u wanna add me to msn. I'm pretty much on all the time to try and win hehe!
  • nod
    Welcome to Buckscoop Mariaa There are a few ways that you can send a PM: 1. Click on the users name or their avatar in their profile square and a drop down box appears. You then chose 'send a private message'. You will land on a page that looks a lot like an email set up. Add a title, the message you want to send and hit 'submit' bottom centre 2. The other way to do it is to hit the orange ]Private messages link that sits upper right on top on the main forum box or 3. you can go into your ]User CP area (on the left in the main grey forum tool bar ) and hit 'send a new message' Let me know if you have any more questions :) Good luck with the games. :D

  • Gallifrey

  • melissanj
    AHHH that friend magnet music!!!!! thankgod for mute!
  • ange13
    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and have just started playing this friend magnet game. wish i hadn't, it's So addictive! I've only won tokens so far but I've just done the math - if you look at the tc and cs, there are 1228 prizes in total ... 747 have been won (if you check out the winners tab) and it closes on 10 october. that means there are still 481 prizes to be won in 9 days. surely that will up the odds of winning. anyone finding it easier to win??
  • MamaK
    I had a go but it annoyed me too much, good luck for those still trying :)
  • queenshrew
    I've pretty much given up lol I must be really, really, really bad at the game... cos I can't even win a 7,500 token lol (just the crummy 1,000 ones..and lots of them!!!) Good luck to those still trying though! And... if you win something for me..I'll love you for life :D
  • loulou
    Ok, I admit, I'm addicted, have hundreds of thousands of tokens and dozens of lemons with eyes but nothing else! If you want to add me, loulou121 at live dot com dot au
  • Beets
    Anyone close to or topping the leaderboard or know how many points it is to the top? I need to win $10K! Would love to know how many points I am behind. There’s only 3 or 4 days left.
  • golfwidow
    Hi Beets If you click on Leaderboard on the left hand side it will show your rank with regards to the top 5 so you can kind of work out how close you are :)
  • thewaya
    hey everyone! please add me on msn so we can play: ju_rike@hotmail.com
  • Gallifrey
    Friend magnet seems to be frozen for the last half hour, anyone else having that problem??
  • Keeys
    Yes same with everyone I know playing ...some people are contacting them fingers crossed for an update soon.
  • Gallifrey
    thanks keeys, this is wasting our valuable last few hours to try & win something lol
  • Keeys
    I know how rude!!! Don't they know we have lived and breathed this and to just turn it off like this is just like taking our air!! ;)
  • Gallifrey
    I know, they are so mean to us lol. I have to go out tonight so I wont even get to be here for the last few hours, damn! At least keeys you have won some great prizes, congratulations :-) I have had to suffer with lemons with eyes, pesky tokens and a messy house lol Would have been better for me to just go and buy an xbox lol
  • Keeys
    Working!!!
  • Gallifrey
    All over red rover!! So how did everyone fair with friend magnet?? I have a few new emoticons now added to my collection on msn!!
  • Keeys
    I finished with a few unwanted emotions, a wii, a messenger green speaker thingy, xbox game pack and a $200 myer voucher!! I'm wrapped because I never normally do well at these comps. Time to get the house reorganised now after way to much time being spent magnitised ;)
