Turn Snowboard Tricks Into Prizes With Facebook Game From HP, Intel, Best Buy And Rossignol

HP, Intel, Best Buy and Rossignol have teamed up to offer prizes to Facebook users through a new game application called Go Big, in which players rack up points completing snowboard tricks. Players compete for weekly prizes, including laptops, snowboards and gift cards, and one grand prize winner will receive a vacation for two to Whistler ski resort.

Entering some personal information gets you into the game, where you control a snowboarder to attempt tricks and score points on four different slopes. You can repeat each course as many times as you like, and scores from the four venues are totaled for the high score that puts you in the running for the prizes.

Gamers can also customize the look of their snowboarder or update their gear to improve jumping ability and speed. Completing a series of tricks can also unlock larger tricks which will help score higher point totals.

The Go Big interface features easy links to the respective Web sites of the four sponsors, but only Best Buy is currently cross promoting the game on its site with a dedicated splash page highlighting a few HP products. Go Big has also been mentioned in wall posts on the HP and Best Buy fan pages, directing Facebookers to the HP game age to play to win.
