Each time you get to spin the CTP Prize Wheel there are two red segments marked “bonus play” which are well worth landing upon.
If you are already familiar with the bonus play card then you are excused from reading the rest of this blog post and are free to get on with something else instead.
However there are always new people coming into the industry and into our community so it never does any harm to recap on some of the game elements that old-hands take for granted.
When you land on one of the bonus play segments then you have earned a chance to play the bonus play game. This brings up a game card containing 15 covered ‘nerd bonus’ squares. Uncovering a square will lead to one of either two options…a nice prize or a nasty troll.
If you win a prize, and we really hope you do, then you get to choose another square and this process will continue until you land on the troll. The troll is the only character within TimTech which does not want to you win and he immediately calls a halt to the game.
This can be a very good way to earn XP for your team.
I realized I had an unclaimed bonus play prize in my CTP Goodie Bag and decided to give it a play and this is what happened…
I won seven prizes including four lots of 1,000 XP and two of 1oo XP before my luck ran out and the troll caught up with me.
I always enjoy landing on the bonus play segment because the bonus play game is very addictive – not knowing when that troll will turn up is a real fun element to the game. Check if you have any outstanding bonus play games in your Goodie Bag and see how much you can win before the troll gets you.
