So I wanted to let everyone know the inside scoop on how to best take advantage of our sweet new sweepstakes we are running right now.
In the past we have given away Tanga Cash, T-Shirts, a Nintendo Wii console, and other random and fun prizes to a single lucky winner. BUT! We have decided (probably due to excessive heat exposure!) that we are picking *nine winners this month! *
We have a grand prize iPod Touch (very sexy!)
*We will be picking 5 people to win a t-shirt. *
We will also be issuing to three winners $20 in Tanga Cash.
Some may think, “Hold on, these Tanga folks are going mad!” Before you send the Red Cross to our dehydrated Tanga Staff – know that this is also to show our thanks for how awesome our customers and gamers are. So we aren’t 110% crazy…
So I also wanted to tell everyone how to cheat the system and get your name in a whole bunch of times. You can enter once from Facebook at this link: http://bit.ly/cFY56V
And once you have taken full advantage of us there – make sure you head over to the Twitter link as well and get your name in a bunch more times! “How?” – You may ask?
If you post the link they give you on the page, for every one of your followers that enters through the link – you get one more entry. So post over and over and over again till your friends and family can’t take another second of it and stop following you. Because when you are drawn to receive a sweet prize, it will all be worth it!
Here is the twitter link: http://bit.ly/dtPSQr
Don’t have Facebook or Twitter but want to take full advantage of Tanga.. ehem.. our sweepstakes? Well then you are in luck. You can ALSO enter at this link here:
So whether you want to check it out via Facebook, Twitter, or the regular and very boring link, then make sure and don’t miss out!

Since Tanga started, we’ve saved people $97,772,932.55 (off the [often-inflated] MSRP).
Here’s hoping we get a billion in savings soon!

Hello everyone – our fearless programmer Joe needed to stop the leaderboards from updating because the code was written in such a way that it was taking down our servers because of the enormous growth in users that we have had lately. He has a few other things he needs to finish up that are critical and then he will rewrite this part of the code.
Thanks for your patience!

From the Can’t Leave Well Enough Alone Department, we’re gonna do a little fruity polish to the new levels and icons and stuff. “Fix” one or two things, add a few more levels (and that would also mean more “fruits,” of course), you know… Fruit 2.1.
What this COULD mean for a very small number of you is this: your current level might change on you. Especially those of you in the upper levels, where there are wide fruitless gaps.
Just giving you all the heads up.
Yours in fruit,

We wanted to give you the heads up that everything we sell and give away on Wed night to Thu night (7:00 p.m. PST to 7:00 p.m. PST) will all be all Macintosh related. We couldn’t figure out a game to sell for Mac day, unless someone has a good idea for us?
Tell all your Mac fanboys to come and check us out!

The fruit is officially on the way.
I know because I’ve seen it. In fact, I’ve even edited a few of the image files. More than that, Aaron and I did all the work coming up with the new levels and the names for the new levels and which “fruit” goes with what level, and did you notice how I put fruit in quotation marks just then?
There are only so many fruits. And, just like we did last time here, most of the upper levels are not fruits. In fact, on Old-School Tanga, only the first nine levels were fruits. Well, ten, if you count the Jack-O-Lantern as a pumpkin. But level eleven on up was Rocket, Bell, Trumpet, Key, Castle, Wizard’s Hat, Meeple.
Nine fruits. Ten on Halloween.
New Tanga..? FIFTEEN fruits!
Most of you won’t be getting any of them.
Because you’ve got to start out as Cherries. That’s a given. And it only makes sense to move from there to Lemon. And then to the next fruit. And then the next. And of course, there’s that excitement as you work your way through the fruit of knowing that someday, eventually, when you’ve finally earned enough Tanga Points, you’ll reach that level where you move beyond the fruit and get your very first different-looking icon – Woo-hoo! I made it! Awesome!
A lot of you are there already.
If you’ve recently made a comment here on Tanga which included the all-caps phrase BRING BACK THE FRUIT, you’re likely gonna by-pass most of the fruit. Heck, if you simply remember when we used to have fruit, then you’ve been here long enough to have probably earned enough Tanga Points to by-pass most of the new fruit.
The bulk of our new fruit is for levels under 10,000 TP. That doesn’t mean we don’t have cool stuff for the levels over 10K. And there might be some fruit still available at those higher levels…
But I just wanted to prepare you.

Starbucks is giving customers around the world a bold incentive to swap the paper cup for a more eco-friendly option. On Thursday, April 15, the company will reward customers who bring a reusable tumbler into participating stores with a complimentary brewed coffee. This effort is just one of the ways Starbucks is collaborating with customers to reduce environmental impacts. The company has offered customers a discount for tumbler use since 1985.

Just wanted to be around for my April Fools puzzles, and now I’m off to Ohio for vacation.
Verve will be back to Featuring, and Renfurdson is still around.
Everyone play nice.

Well, it’s that time of year again. The time when I get it into my head to come up with something, er… different for our April Fools Day puzzles.
My success rate for these is about 1 for 3. Which is not bad… if you’re a Major League Baseball player. But as a puzzlemaker, well…
Regardless, I’ve done it again. And this year, April 1st just happens to fall on a day in which I get all three puzzles. Meaning I can be 1 for 3 again :)
One of ’em is pretty straightforward, but still, I think, fittingly whimsical.
One of ‘em has the potential to be very cool. It’s actually an idea I had almost two years ago, but only got around to this year.
And one of them is definitely gonna piss some of you off. Heh, maybe more than some of you. But it’s another one of those ideas I wanted to try, and hey… it’s April Fools Day. You gotta expect some weirdness, right?
So… all of you grumblers out there, I’ll see you in a day or so. And don’t worry, I can take it.

and most importantly –
At least one weeks worth of bragging rights!
What in this Tanga-World is a vertical poem you are asking? I have kindly constructed my own masterpiece to use as an example:
**Tanga Rocks Because:

A lthough I spend all my money
R ocking my Tanga-Tshirts is always fun
O ver my credit card limit

K nowing there’s another deal every day
S leep will not come tonight, I’d say**
Notice that the first letter of every line spells out “Tanga Rocks”? That is what you are to create.
Submit your entries below in a comment and we will pick the winner on Monday.
