Friday Fix

TGIF! After a long week of hard work, it is nice to sit down and play and win a couple of cash games or games for Skill Tokens, isn’t it?  We’ve been working hard all week too, actively fixing glitches to make the site run even better.  We sincerely appreciate you putting up with them and letting us know about them so that we can get them all fixed up and make your gaming experience even better.

Here are the fixes that we completed this past week:

  • We have added your username at the top of the website next to your account information snapshot.  This is a link as well, so you can easily jump to your “My Account” module by just clicking your username.
  • We’ve heard that you guys really didn’t like the scrolling within the billboard.  Well, we heard ya loud and clear and we have eliminated that function entirely.  Now, the only scrolling going on is with the traditional scroll bar and we’ve just made the page as long as it needs to be.
  • Treasure Hunt is a page that was particularly affected by the in-site scrolling.  It now is formatted much nicer and is just a long page, absolutely no in-site browsing.

Be sure to let us know when you come across something that doesn’t work or look quite right. We’ll work on getting it fixed asap.

 

Happy gaming!

Blackbeard’s Assault is back!

We’ve got some news that we know some of you will be very excited about: Blackbeard’s Assault is back!  It is back by popular demand!  Now it can be played on both Skillville Games as well as SkillAddiction (though we think that you should play it on Skillville Games… that’s what all the cool kids are doing, at least).  We were thinking about holding a Freeroll in it… what do you guys think about that? 😉  Post your interest on our Facebook Page and it may just come to fruition!

Here are the fixes that we completed this past week:

  • We got a snazzy slidedeck integration on the homepage.  Now, you won’t only be seeing the “What is Skillville Games” video, but also new game announcements, featured prizes, promotions, and lots of other valuable information.
  • Updated some of the layout issues — it should be lookin’ cleaner and just all-around better! 

A shorter list this week, but that’s because we’re gearing up, big-time, for next week.  Keep an eye out for some big changes coming soon!  And, of course, be sure to let us know when you come across something that doesn’t work or look quite right. We’ll work on getting it fixed asap.

Into the minds of women who game online

Recently, a study was conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of GameHouse that provided some interesting insights into the minds of today’s online gamers… who are now 55% female!

Overall: female gamers apparently are more social, happy, and active in the bedroom. They are older (nearly 80% were between the ages of 18-44), and the largest concentration of them live in the South. More female gamers (than female non-gamers) socialize one time per day in person, and are involved in social networks. More than half are in a serious relationship.

Check out the awesome infographic:

Two bits of exciting news!

Hey Skillizens!  We’ve got two exciting things to tell you about!

  1. Jolly Jong, our brand new Mahjong blitz game, has been released from the VIP-only status and is now available to play for the whole community!  This game has been well liked by the players who have already gotten the chance to play the game, so we highly recommend that you check it out 😉  Just a tip: this game is all about speed!  Click the matching tiles as fast as you possibly can to get a high score.  And don’t forget about the bonus time powerups… those extra few seconds are precious! 
  2. Back by popular demand is… *drum roll please*… Spider Solitaire 2-Suit!  We are excited to bring this great game back into the community, and we know that you are too!  While Jolly Jong is mostly about speed and reflexes, this game is much more strategic.  If that’s more your pace, be sure to check it out!

 

Happy gaming!
