Summer is the time of year when families pack up the car and hit the highways for new sights and experiences (and face steeper gas prices as well). My family took many great vacations to places like Yellowstone Park, the Oregon coast, and Disneyland. Unfortunately I was prone to severe carsickness and my memories are all Dramamine induced naps with small windows of lucidity to view some of America’s national treasures. Hopefully your memories are less hazy than mine.

For this week’s contest we want your entries to center on a memorable family vacation.

Submit your room entry with a brief original text (200 words should suffice).

To be a contender you must:

Submit your room between the posting of the contest announcement on 07/29/2010 and 08/04/2010 at 11:59 p.m. PST. User submissions outside of this time frame will not be eligible.

Please limit your submissions to one room per user. Multiple entries will result in disqualification. Consider your submission carefully before submission, as each contestant gets one entry (no revisions allowed after initial posting).

To enter, simply go to The Contest Forum and Post Reply.  Winners will be announced there as well within 48 hours after the contest ends.

The judges are rumored to be The Family Griswold.

They will review and rank the best submission on how the original text portion complements the accompanying room design -not Opals spent in its implementation.

The winners will receive the following Opal awards:

# 1st Prize: 3,000 Opals

# 2nd Prize: 1,500 Opals

# 3rd Prize: 750 Opals

As most of you iWin Facebook fans know, we’ve been promising to give away a free full (and ad free!) version of Family Feud Dream Home by the end of July to those who have “Liked”/Become a Fan of our page. Well, we have delivered–and early!!! The response has been tremendous, as we’ve gained over 20,000 fans!! We thank you for your dedication, and hope you are enjoying the game. It’s absolutely amazing how many of you responded and were truly excited about the game. Make sure you go to our iWin Facebook page and become a fan (“Like”) to get your free link for Family Feud Dream Home. Look for the wall post that includes the link.  This offer will expire next Tuesday,  August 3rd, so get it while it’s hot!

We also want to make sure everyone who hasn’t gone to our iWin Facebook page checks it out and suggests iWin to their friends and family. There are more giveaways and promotions planned for the upcoming months that we want you to be a part of! You don’t want your friends to miss out on the fun, so share the love!

To our existing fans, be sure to welcome our new fans. Quite a few of them are heavy-duty Facebook Family Feud players, so iWin and the game manager may be a new discovery for them. We love that you’re already helping them out and suggesting other iWin game titles that they’ll enjoy. Keep it coming and we’ll be sure that you’re all in the loop for the surprises we have in store for the upcoming months. Thank you again for your incredible support!

You’ve waited patiently for a month, and now the time has arrived! Sometime next week (week of July 26th), we will be awarding those who are fans on our iWin Facebook page with a link to a free (and ad-free!) version of Family Feud Dream Home.

As an iWin Facebook fan (if you’ve clicked “Like” on the top right of this page or on our iWin Facebook page, you’re already a fan), you will have exclusive access to the link. On our Facebook page, you will see a link to the video below. Once you view it, you will also see the Dream Home logo in the top right corner of the video! Click the logo and you will be directed to the download page for your free game!

This game will let you play solo, with 2 players, or with your entire family! Over 150 household items are available to purchase with the points you earn. Check out this cool twist on the classic Feud game!

Time is running out! Be sure to suggest iWin’s Facebook page to your friends and family so they can share in the fun! This offer is good for a limited time, so become a fan today!

Sometimes, less is more. It’s about using the right tools for the right job. In the future, everything will be made out of some kind of special polymer that is indestructable and light. Also, everything may or may not be blue – that’s the part of the prophecy we haven’t figured out yet.

What we have figured out, is that minimalist stuff is fun! Make a table out of a single solid piece of material? Awesome! A chair that weighs almost nothing, yet is just as supportive as an oak chair? Great! There’s a lot you can do with just a little, and smart designing.

When I think of good guilty-pleasure beach books, I instantly think of romance novels from the 80s. I once knew a woman whose entire house was full of them. We’re talking wall-to-wall shelves of her favorite hunky book cover boys. Although her dreams of marrying Fabio never panned out, she held onto her dream of meeting Mr. Right–her prince would one day arrive to take her away and she would no longer have to rely on her favorite page-turners to fulfill her grandiose dreams of love and matrimony.

As times and tastes have changed, so have the romantic genre for novels. The desire for a hero full of style and substance has taken precedence over the beautiful book model. The love for reading has translated into other mediums, such as online games! Based on this new form of expressing tales of love and desire, we bring you  the Harlequin Presents: Hidden Object of Desire game. Check out this steamy plot!

The Prince of Aristo is the most enchanting and elegant man that Allie has ever set her eyes upon. When she visits Aristo on a journalism assignment to cover the prince’s 30th birthday, she and her photographer quickly uncover a plot that threatens the prince’s safety. Although she’s unable to resist his charms, she must protect her heart, as well as protect him.

This game has beautiful graphics that have cast a romantic spell on my desktop! As an added bonus, included with the game is a free Harlequin novel. With this game, I not only have my pool-side page turner, but I also have a fun game to play on my laptop as I listen to the tides of the Pacific Ocean roll in. A passionate romantic tale at the push of a button is a great way to start a vacation!

Sometimes, we do strange things to stand out. Sometimes we dress oddly, or say bizarre things, all in an attempt to gain some individuality. Some of us take it to the extreme, while others are a little more low-key. Either way, we sympathize!

Sometimes normal is just boring, and you want to do something a little odd! Other times, normal is comfortable. With the new items this week, you can choose – stand up and be counted, or lay back and relax!

Yesterday afternoon, longtime subscriber Leather42 made a purchase with her iCoins and discovered something no one else had before:  She had iCoins coming back to her.  Just a few minutes before we had stealthily added a new exciting enhancement for our Club iWin* subscribers – 10% back in iCoins for all game purchases (and Backup CDs) made with the currency.  While Leather42  was not available for comment, paparazzi did provide this snapshot of her in the midst of celebrating this exciting development:

* This offer applies to Club iWin members exclusively upon redemption of purchased iCoins and does not apply to other subscription services or at the time monthly rebilling takes place.
