Should Flinging Owls into a Hot Tub Really Be This Hard?


Because standards for in-office entertainment dramatically decrease as December draws near, Equifax -- yeah, the credit report people -- gets into the advergaming spirit with Tundra Tubbing.

Instructions for Level 1: Orbit Owl:

Orbit is ready for a warmer kind of perch. Help him and his buddies into the hot tub as fast as you can. Simply click, drag, and release them from the throw zone without crossing the line.

This is actually a lot harder than it sounds. Out of the five stacked-up, trembling owls I received, only three evaded hypothermia for that hot bath in the sky.

There are no apparent hazards to losing*; you just keep trying to improve your score. Which I guess isn't a bad metaphor for the iron-clad FICO cycle that seizes us in its steel talons the moment our parents realize our social security numbers can be used as additional lines of credit.


*What they don't tell you is, leaving too many owls for dead makes it harder to get a loan.

it's really not that hard. The 3rd time I played I made it all the way to the end.

You're clearly better than I am. I was at it for at least 10 minutes. Never beat level 2.

Haha. Fun post and fun game. The trick seemed to be banging the little guys off the walls and ceilings. I'm with Jonny on this one, not impossible once you get the knack of it.
