But don’t worry, we invited them! They’re here to bring us cheer (and scurvy) – they won’t take anything, hopefully! Well, they are pirates after all, it’s in their nature.

While they’re here, feel free to snag some of their stuff to decorate your rooms, they won’t even notice.

In celebration of Halloween, iWin is having a spooky 50% off sale! 12 of our most ghoulish games are up for grabs at half the regular price! No tricks up our sleeves–just tasty game treats!

Choosing a good fright-filled game can be as hauntingly horrifying as picking out Halloween treats while trick-or-treating that won’t make your tummy hurt, or deciding which scary film to watch that won’t keep you awake all night!  We give you three (cue lightning cracks)! Three ghoulish games to haunt your Hallow’s eve! (more lightning cracks).

1) Zombie Bowl O Rama– The Zombies are invading your favorite bowling alley, and it’s up to you to send the undead back to the cemetery! Take on the zombies by choosing a colorful character and use your bowling ball to knock their stinking socks off!

2) Mishap: An Accidental Haunting-Kelly and Brock Burton have just moved into their dream home, which, unfortunately, is full of pesky poltergeist. You’ll be assembling custom ghostbusters for each unwelcomed guest, and will challenge them to unique minigames! Help this young couple get rid of their paranormal house guests and return their home back to normal.

3) Midnight Mysteries: Salem Witch Trials-The mysterious death of writer Nathaniel Hawthorne, who has died during a freak snow storm, is at the center of his ghostly tale. Hawthorne’s spirit appears to you as you travel back and forth in time from the scene of Hawthorne’s untimely death to the 17th century Salem during the witch trials!

The Day of the Dead is fast approaching! November 2nd, to be exact. Now, it’s not so morbid as it might sound – it is a day of celebration, to honor our loved ones! You can find more information at your local library, I’m not here to give you a lecture!

Exciting news! “Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star” has finally arrived! We’ve all been waiting impatiently, but the wait is surely worth it! We’ve had our share of excitement around the iWin office, and now we’re sharing that excitement with you!!

Check out our Producer’s Corner written by Jacob, the incredible producer of “Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star”. He’s bringing you some details as to what an exciting challenge it was to bring this game to fruition.

Producer’s Corner: Jacob

Hi Everyone,

I’d like to tell you about our outstanding next release in the Jewel Quest franchise, “Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star”. This game is absolutely amazing, and truly pushes the boundaries of match 3 gameplay and the “Jewel Quest” franchise in general.

The team has really outdone themselves this time!  They’ve added such cool new gameplay and gorgeous art that even I am amazed that we’ve pulled it off. The “Sleepless Star” team has really done an incredible job.

“Jewel Quest: Sleepless Star” follows an epic adventure of our two heroes, Percy Pack and Yellow Feather, in an epic across-the-globe adventure full of puzzling surprises.  We’ve handcrafted hundreds of full color story scenes that are displayed as the story unfolds.  All of the scenes are also completely voice acted. These beautiful scenes need to be seen and heard to be believed.

We also have a brand new power up system called ‘Artifacts’. These items help cater to many different player styles and help turn the tide when the going gets tough. There are 16 artifacts in all–some of them boost your score, some add time, and some… well let’s just say that’s a secret for now.  I encourage everyone to play all the optional levels so you can check them out.

There are over 200 new jewel boards and 9 new jewel board mechanics exclusive to “Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star”. These new jewel board mechanics are the heart and soul of what makes “The Sleepless Star” so special. These unique features merge the story and gameplay, as well as take the jewel boards in directions never experienced before within the “Jewel Quest” franchise.

“Jewel Quest: The Sleepless Star” launched today!  I encourage everyone to download it and let us know what you think, as well as enter our in-game sweepstakes to win one of four $500 weekly prizes! Play a game you love and have a chance to win a sweepstakes! Sounds pretty good to me.

Have fun!

Surveyyyy Says! Play The Family Feud and have a chance to win ALL NEW awards! To check them out, click on the Awards trophy icon on your home page underneath Fast Money Results.

You can also click on the Profile tab to see which Awards you have won! Don’t worry if you’ve already won awards! Your awards will carry over, and possibly give you a head start at winning the new awards!

Helped a Friend and Won For A Friend

The Helped a Friend Award will be given to the player even if they lose in helping their friend with fast money. The Won For a Friend is awarded only when the player’s help actually wins fast money for their friend. So technically, if a player wins the very first fast money request they play, they can get both of these awards at once!

7 Days of Play

The most exciting of all of the awards is the “7 Days of Play” Award. You will receive a free episode for playing for 7 days (doesn’t have to be in a row). That means that for every 7th day of playing, you will receive a free episode!

+500 Points

Score 500 or more points in a game and win this prize!

Stage 2 Player

The Stage Award can be collected only once and the total number on the progress bar will reflect the number of prizes that are in the player’s current stage level.

Other award tips:

* The Over 100,000 Points Award will not have text over the progress bar, as designed. However, the tool tip bar below will display how many more points you will need in order to receive the award. Scroll over the bar below the award icon to see how many points you have left to go!

* The Big Helper Award does not require the player to actually win Fast Money each time for this award to progress.

* The “x” accompanied by a number located next to some of the awards indicates how many times you have won this award.

So, now that you know what awards are in store, get going and start earning them!

Have you ever wondered what you would do to survive if you were alone on a deserted island? How would you survive? Would you worry that perhaps you weren’t alone on the island? What if evil forces were plotting against your survival? Well, since you likely won’t ever be faced with this scenario, now you can test your skills in The Island: Castaway!

Introducing “The Island: Castaway”
An ocean liner was caught in a storm and wrecked. Some passengers managed to escape, by life boats, to a nearby tropical island. Before they had time to plan on their next step, though, mysterious things began to happen! An ancient inscription is discovered in the sand, and the survivors quickly come to learn that they are not alone on the island!
