Poke's Tweet-powered teeth
Created by Poke for Orange, a new online game gives players a chance to win a new phone and other prizes by tweeting or posting on Facebook to move a set of chattering teeth around a specially built, fully webcammed game board…
To play, you simply add a particular hashtag to your tweet or to your Facebook update. These messages power the chattering teeth around the game board - which you can see online at phonefund.orange.co.uk. If the teeth pass a lit beacon (there are several around the outside of the track) then whoever's message powered them past it wins a prize.
It's pretty silly, but actually I've just found myself watching the live stream of the game online for about ten minutes, hoping that my twitter avatar pops up with the news that I've won a prize. I've yet to win anything but apparently fluffyhead72 just won an iTunes track.
Find out more here, but maybe don't tell your boss that your playing games online: phonefund.orange.co.uk
