Join Balloonacy!

Balloonacy, the race
across the internet originally run in 2008.
The first campaign involved 40,000 virtual hot air balloon travelers
visiting 3,000 different sites and 63 million internet miles
in a mad two-week race to win a group vacation in Ibiza.

The 2010 Balloonacy race
runs for two weeks, starting November 8th,
with prizes including trips to Kenya, 
Egypt or a safari park in the south of England.

The creators of this game -  POKE  - tell us more about it.

"Back in 2008, we made a game with Orange called Balloonacy. Lots of you played it, loved it and told your friends about it. Now it’s back for seconds, but this time, it’s a race to the end of the internet. And it’s happening right now.

The great internet balloon race is set across four stages: tree tops, clouds, space and deep space. Once you’ve picked a balloon and given it a name, you’ll fly it across a racecourse that’s made up of lots of lovely people’s websites and blogs.

By grabbing air and waving at each other, you can go faster through the course and give yourself a better chance of bagging the first prize of a holiday to Kenya and a balloon ride across the Masai Mara. On the way, you’ll bump into pesky UFOs, jellyfish and bees trying to slow you down. Plus there are lots of mini games and challenges dotted around to get your teeth into.

We like to think of Balloonacy as a celebration of everything that’s wonderful about this thing called the web. And we’re really rather excited for everyone who’s going to a part of something a little bit special over the next nine days."

We can still have some fun! 
If you own a site or a blog you can also host the game.

Pick your balloon and join this race!
 And please - wave at me!!! :-)

Good luck!

Querida Astrid, a piada deste jogo é que me fez lembrar a Volta ao Mundo em 80 dias... só que agora fazem isto em horas, minutos!
Perdi o balão algures e já não deu para recuperar. Mas foi bonito enquanto durou. :-)
Bem haja e beijo*deFada
