    Pardon Our Dust!

    Hello everyone – please excuse our dust as we launch this new web site. We are experiencing some minor issues in moving our site from the test environment to the full scale web server environment! We will be running smoothly very shortly.

    So what is Tanga? Simply put, it’s the place to stop every single night to shop for incredible deals on games, consumer electronics, gadgets and other great geeky stuff. It’s also a place to come and have fun! Our Daily Fun area will be filled with lots of entertaining things to do including puzzles, games, videos, or anything else that we find fascinating and fun. You will still be able to collect Tanga points by visiting and/or participating in our Daily Fun. But now you have to do it on the day it’s released. Just like our products that are “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow”, so is the ability to get Tanga Points for solving a puzzle or checking out the Daily Fun page!

    We will be announcing what you can do with Tanga Points shortly, but some of our ideas include upgrading to Super Tanga User (STU) status, participating in blind auctions for cool products, buying Tanga Trash among other things.

    Have fun and enjoy the deals and the Daily Fun! And again, thank you for your patience as we get everything running as smoothly as our pre-launch puzzle site!

    Tanga Launch (Pre-Info)

    Tanga Launch is Coming Sunday October 15th at 7:00 p.m. PST!

    Thank you for participating in our Tanga.com pre-launch puzzle extravaganza! If we had a dollar for every email we received begging for hints, we wouldn’t have had to start this business. We hope you had as much fun solving these puzzles as we had watching the threads on BoardGameGeek.com.

    Most of you received Tanga Points for solving the daily puzzles. Tanga Points are a form of currency that can be used for a variety of activities that will be announced in the future. We will also be adding additional fun things to do with your Tanga Points to our site randomly throughout the year. This may include blind auctions for really cool products, registering for Super Tanga User status, buying Tanga Trash, performing the Macarena or other cool and zany things.

    Starting on October 15th, solving a daily puzzle will still reward you with Tanga Points but because our products are “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow” so is the opportunity to earn Tanga Points for solving a daily puzzle. You can come back and play the puzzles at any time, but if you wish to earn Tanga Points, you need to solve them within 24 hours. But guess what? Chicken butt – AND there will be other ways to earn additional Tanga Points that we will announce shortly.

    You will also notice that we renamed the puzzle area to “Daily Fun.” This is because we will be offering something fun and exciting to do or see every night at 7:00 p.m. PST (10:00 p.m. EST.) This could be a puzzle, a contest, a Podcast, a or anything else that we think is entertaining. For right now, we are going to entertain you with incredible puzzles that will be even more fun and interesting than the last 30 we published!

    Oh, one more thing. We know that some people will try to create multiple accounts to try to collect as many Tanga Points as possible. If we catch people trying to cheat (and we have our ways to find out), we’ll have to eliminate those accounts from our system! It’s kind of like Elimi-Date on MTV but without all the hot women. So please play nicely with the other Tanga users and remember to please wash your hands after you go potty.

    The winner of the grand prize of an XBox 360 Premium Edition is one who has solved all 30 puzzles, didn’t sleep day or night for an entire month just to figure out the answers, and someone who has promised to tatoo the name Tanga on their chest. That man happens to be Aaron Hallien! Congrats to Aaron and thank you to everyone who played for the past 30 days. We had a blast!

    The Winner of the 3D Settlers of Catan is...

    Daniel Reynolds! Congrats Mr. Danielson, you will receive a brand new copy of the anniversary 3D edition of the Settlers of Catan. Who cares of the ports aren’t printed correctly on the wood frame and if you can’t see the numbers on the round chits after you roll them! Hey, this game comes in a crate AND has clay molded 3D pieces! What other game compares? None I dare to say. Congrats on winning!

    Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas!

    Well, at least we’ll know that Tom Jolly will have a holly, jolly Christmas – a few months early! Why you ask? Because Tom is going to receive a nice little present in the mail. A SlingBox – the device everyone is talking about that lets you time-shift your TV viewing to any computer that is connected to a high-speed connection. Even Santa is jealous!

    Mr. Gore - did you invent the internet?

    Not only did Mr. Gore (Thomas) invent the internet, he also won a Sony PS2 Slim version from the wackos at Tanga.com for solving Tuesday’s “bone-head” of a puzzle. But Gore shouldn’t be faulted for saying he invented the internet. He was just really tired when he made that statement. You see, he was up all night the day before inventing the camcorder and was feeling a little loopy.

    Note: “Bone-Head” does not a reference to Mr. Gore or Mr. Thomas Gore but to the actual puzzle as there is a skeleton pictured. It could have something to do with the author of the puzzle however.

    Prizes for Mon-Wed - announced!

    Here are the list of prizes for the next three days. As you’ve noticed, our front page mentions nothing about what types of prizes we planned to give away during our first 30 days of pre-launch madness. So now, you can win some cool tech!

    Monday – Ipod Nano 2GB Silver
    Tuesday – PS2 Slim (Playstation 2)
    Wednesday – Ipod Shuffle (New redesigned version)

    Good luck and may the force be with you.

    Edit – ok, so we DID mention the board games. When I read it through I didn’t see it on the front page! This was our evil plan all along ;-) And if you win and don’t like the product, sell it on Ebay and buy a game of your choice!

    TangaJoe is trapped in a dark hotel room with the other unshowered Tangadenizens slaving away at Tanga.com for three days straight. And we’ve ran out of Diet Coke. UNACCEPTABLE.

    In other news, TangaJoe’s wife is at home alone and has no pizza (left her cell phone at work), water (the house’s water pump broke), dishwasher (clogged), or car (keys lost). As Earl would say, “Do good things and good things will happen. Do bad things and bad things will happen.” I figure that’s what she gets for childishly demanding pizza the other night.

    Saturday, September 30th winner - Erika Osterbur!

    Puzzle #17 winner is Erika Osterbur! She will be sent a copy of Day’s of Wonder’s new game, “Cleopatra and the Society of Architects.”

    Cleopatra was born in 69 BC and was 18 years old when we father died and left his kingdom to her. Did you know that Cleopatra actually spoke 8 languages and was the only one in her family in a long period of time to speak Egyptian? A little known fact about Julius Caeser and Cleopatra’s child is that his name was Ptolemy Caeserion and he was the first human to be born using a Caeserion Section (C-Section.)

    And bring back all of those happy days
    Put your troubles down
    It’s time to celebrate
    Let love shine

    A way to come together
    And make things better
    We need a Holladay

    Holladay Celebrate!
    Holladay Celebrate!

    Come together in every nation and play some Roads and Boats Baby!

    Congrats to Fritz Schwartz! The winner of puzzle #13

    When I was a kid, my parents made me eat grits for breakfast. When I would throw fits, they’d grab their baseball bats and mits and we’d go outside and let off some steam. Then we’d come back and eat Ritz and more grits. Then I’d have to go to Boy Scouts and I got the Firem’n Chit. And my dog loved to eat Kibbles and Bits. Then I grew up and my girlfriend in high school was quite the ditz. Our web site is getting tons of hits and we now say CONGRATS TO Mr. FRITZ! He will be receiving a free copy of Ra(tz) from Uberplay!
