Be a Good Neighbor! Send an Invite and Start a Party!

Tell your kids to get their guest list ready and prepare their party favors in honor of Be a Good Neighbor Day in Math Blaster! Blasters are encouraged to share in the celebration by inviting their neighboring B.F.F.s over for a Pod-warming party. What a way to enjoy time with their neighbors and show off the amazing decorations in your kids’ Pods!

Your kids can invite their B.F.F.s to check out their fantastic Pods!

No need to mail out invitations. Your kids can invite their friends to join in on the fun by using the Math Blaster toolbar. Tell your kids to head up to their Pods and click on the Buddy Icon. This will bring up a list of all of your kids’ B.F.F.s who are currently in the game. The Buddy List will allow your kids to select the B.F.F.s they want to invite to their Pods. From there your kids can hit the “Invite” button to have invitations sent to their B.F.F.s. So whether your kids are looking to host a small social gathering or a block party, it’s up to them because they can invite as few or as many Blasters as they want!

What do your kids think of hosting a party in their pods?

Coolest Pod in the Universe Contest!

Things have really taken off at the space station recently and there’s been a lot of exciting, new additions! Now, Blasters have their own homes called pods and can earn credits to decorate them. Credits are Math Blaster’s very own currency and can be used to buy all sorts of furniture and accessories for a Blaster’s pod. They can be earned by playing games that help develop math skills such as B-Force Blaster, Bolt Cruncher and Oozami.

Max wants to celebrate both of these latest additions by hosting a contest to see what kinds of spaces your kids have created and find out who has the Coolest Pod in the Universe! Tell your kids to start earning credits so they can begin buying items to decorate their pod and enter to win by October 4, 2011. The Blaster with the best pod will receive 5000 credits!

There are so many items to choose from in the My Pod Store, Max can only imagine the creative ways your children will come up with to decorate their pod. They can give it a theme, make it wacky, or design it to be the pod where all Blasters will want to hang out!

This Blaster’s pod is out of this world!

To enter the contest, email a picture of your child’s pod to Max at MaxBlaster@adventure.com along with the name of his or her Blaster. This is important so that Max will know who to reward for having the Coolest Pod in the Universe. All entries are due by Tuesday, October 4, 2011.

You can take a picture of your child’s pod by taking a picture of your computer screen with a screenshot. To do this, open Math Blaster and go into your child’s Blaster’s pod. Make sure the pod looks just the way he or she wants it, and have the Blaster stand so that you have a good view of the pod. If you have a PC, press ‘Print Screen,’ which will take a picture of your screen. Then you can paste the picture you just took into a Microsoft Word document, save the document, and attach it in your email to Max. If you have a Mac, hold down ‘Command + Shift + 3’ at the same time and let go. This will take a screenshot and save a picture to your desktop, which you can then attach in your email to Max.

Tell your kids to start perfecting their pods so they can enter to win! Good Luck!

Power Play on Another Planet!

When your children visit their monster mutt on its home planet do they want to do more than just ride it around? Math Blaster introduces power play! When Blasters visit their monster mutt, they can choose power play the same way they would choose to ride their monster mutt. Power play allows Blasters to participate in a challenge to find 10 items located around Planet Avatarus or Planet Blizzard.

Where was this item found?

Blasters need to search high and low in order to find all 10 items, and with planets as complex as Avatarus and Blizzard, who knows where they could be hidden? When all 10 items are found, Blasters will be presented with the opportunity to choose from 3 particular, planetary power-ups—shrink, sparkle, or speed! Once a power-up is selected, a Blaster has 60 seconds to use it.

The shrink power-up will shrink a Blaster and monster mutt into the size of cosmic dust particles!

Look at how small this Blaster is!

Sparkle and shine!—a shooting star’s got nothing on a Blaster that chooses the sparkle power-up!

This Blaster could be mistaken for a meteor shower.

Choosing the speed power-up will make a Blaster and monster mutt go so fast, gravity couldn’t even slow them down!

Which is faster- the speed of light or this Blaster with his monster mutt?

Are your children’s Blasters up to the challenge? If so, they could be rewarded with one of these cool power-ups today!
