CONTEST: Bucky Acronym Game (#BAG)

  • March 31, 2011

Buckyballs Game

It’s contest time again… but this time you don’t need a set to win a free set.


People have always asked us where the name “Buckyballs” comes from.

We know the answer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun. Lets assume BUCKY stood for something… it’d have to be crazy… and fun (just like Buckyballs)… but what would it be?


Post your best Bucky Acronym to our Facebook or on Twitter and you’ll automatically be entered to win a free set of Buckyballs.


On Facebook

Post your Bucky Acronym like this…






… to our Facebook page before 11:59PM EST Sunday, April 3rd.


Ideally, you’ll post it as a comment right on the contest announcement – but we won’t fault you if you forget that bit and just post it to our wall.

Either way, we’ll pick our two favorite on Monday and award them a free set of Buckyballs!


On Twitter

It’s going to work just the same way, only you’ve got to add the hash-tag #BAG and short link to this page. Like this…

Banged Up Cats Kinda Yell #BAG

… before 11:59PM EST Sunday, April 3rd. We’ll pick our two favorite and award them a free set of Buckyballs Monday!

Buckyballs Shape Contest

It’s time for another Facebook photo contest. It’s easy. It’s simple. And all it takes is a single picture of your Buckyballs in action to win!

Here’s how it works:

Step 1 – Take a picture of your balls in action – IE, make any shape, play any game, pose them in an interesting way on in your desk or in your house, and take a picture pretty much anything will do.

Step 2 – Post it to the wall of our Facebook page ( by midnight tonight. As soon as you do, you’ll automatically be entered to WIN A FREE SET!

Step 3 – There is no step 3. Just come back to our blog or Facebook page page Monday to see if you’ve won.

Now for the fine print:

- Pictures must can not have previously been posted to our Facebook page to qualify.
– Each picture is considered a new entry. Feel free to post as many pictures as you like.
– Two people will win free sets!
– Winner selection will be anything but random. Someone from Team Buckyballs will pick two using any criteria they deem fit (we’re keeping it secret who, this time for their protection). How fun is that?

BONUS TWITTER COMPETITION: Finish and re-post the phrase and below to on Twitter. If it get tweeted 30 times (or more) within the next 24 hours, we’ll pick two people who posted it at random and send them free sets!
