Bored? Why not win something!Edit #2!I got word from the people at Zowy.com and it appears that all the people going to it and using it like they did created something like a DDOS attack and so they had to take it off for the moment. Fear not though! The game should be back up soon, we'll update you when we know more. Thanks!
EDIT - read red part for an important announcement! It appears some confusion is happening. First, there will be only 5 prizes given away for the "Manga Points". They can be seen on the "Scores" page. Other prizes (ones you can win on the reel) are listed on the "Prizes" page. Everything listed below are what we plan on giving away, if not this round, then the next :). -- Does this make sense? PM me if you still have questions~
MangaHelpers and ZOWY.com have been working together for a while now, and they've come up with a game that'd allow us to give our members something for nothing!
You can win prizes in 3 easy steps!
1. Go to this site
2. Play the game.
3. Instantly win by matching 3 items together OR by getting the most points! Point contest will be over on April 30-31!! (See scores page to see who is winning!)
Once you get matching items just fill out your information, use your MangaHelpers username
(only members of MangaHelpers can win) and you're all set!
So far we've decided on the following prizes that we want to give away! (Click an image to jump to that website!)
After each contest run, new prizes will be given out taken from the list below (Subject to get new prizes) This contest run you can win the items marked by this icon:
[/td][td]1-5. Amazon Gift Certificates
(100, 50, & 25)
We will be giving out not 1, but 5 certificates (different values). With these, you can buy anything on Amazon within the given value. We'll give 5 of these in the following values:
- $250, $150, $100, $75, $50

Now there's a simple, easy, and fun way to harness your creativity. Bamboo Fun makes your computer your canvas, allowing you to freely express yourself by simply touching the pen tip to the tablet. Touch up digital photos, draw by hand, create artwork and paintings, and even write in your own handwriting.[/td][/tr][tr][td]
[/td][td]8. Casio XD-470 Electronic Dictionary (~$178.00)This dictionary is great for looking up unknown kanji (you simply draw what you see!) However, one major drawback is you cannot simply jump from your found kanji to the J->E dictionary. So you have to remember the pronunciation, click on the J-E dictionary and search through the various pronunciation until you find the kanji. Then the English meaning is displayed.
[/td][td]9. A Dictionary Of Basic Japanese Grammar (~$49.88) A DICTIONARY OF BASIC JAPANESE GRAMMAR offers a new approach to the interpretation of Japanese grammar and provides, in dictionary format, a convenient reference of grammar-related expressions. Accurate and concise, the grammar explanations incorporate the results of recent research in Japanese linguistics.
[/td][td]10. A Dictionary Of Intermediate Japanese Grammar (~$42.50)
The only other difference between the two books (beside content) is the use of furigana over kanji instead of romaji. This is a very good thing for any student of Japanese. This book takes important grammatical points and lists them in easy to find alphabetical order. The explanations and examples are superb. It covers each grammatical point's various meanings in a clear-cut and orderly way.[/td][/tr][tr][td]
