Blockdot Releases Tech Toyland Game for CompUSA


November 30, 2007 (Dallas, TX)– Dallas-based Blockdot has released“Tech Toyland,” an awesomely addictive holiday-themed game for CompUSA, one of the nation's leading retailers and resellers of technology products and services.

In“Tech Toyland,” your goal is to create a line of three or more gift packs of the same color.

To do this, swap the positions of any two gifts by clicking on them with your mouse. When you successfully create a line, the gift packs will disappear off the game board— earning you points! New gifts will then cascade into the empty spots. But watch out: your shopping season (and the game) ends when you can no longer create gift packs for those Movers and Shakers, Movie Buffs, Wannabe Photographers, Rebel Rockers, and Techno Geeks on your holiday list.

After playing“Tech Toyland,” users can spread some holiday cheer by sending a“challenge-a-friend” e-mail straight from the game, and they can post their scores for all to see on the“Tech Toyland Scoreboard.”

Ready for a Merry Gaming experience? In addition to be featured on http://www.compusa.com/specials/techtoyland/default.asp,“Tech Toyland” can be played on Blockdot’s gaming portal, www.kewlbox.com.
