Tahoe South offers new game

By
From page B8 | August 10, 2012 |

Tahoe South’s new Truth or Dare Facebook game at facebook.com/TahoeSouth, conjures up the electrical, wild-child spirit of a sun-drenched summer while encouraging users to play Truth or Dare with their Facebook friends.

Part Magic 8 Ball, part electronic truth serum, this game pushes and tests users and their friends to fess it up — or not. After all, sharing revealing truths and embarrassing photos is basically what Facebook was made for, right?

Facebook-savvy users are up for the newest, latest challenge, especially when the grand prize involves something beyond some basic bar swag — how about a stay in South Lake Tahoe.

In this game, a free trip to the 24-hour high-energy Sierra town is up for grabs for one lucky soul and three wild friends. In addition, 50 summer essential party packs complete with satchel, waterproof phone pouch, Tahoe South t-shirt and sunglasses are up for grabs.

This bold challenge to Facebook users is all about giving up unknown truths about themselves to their friends.

“Tahoe South is a playground built on mountains of truth, extreme dares and blood pumping challenges, so why not create a Facebook game for users,” said Carol Chaplin, executive director of the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority. “We’re challenging our followers to see if they have what it takes to tell some unexpected truth, act out on some wild dare and raise the bar among trusted friends.”

Maneuvering through the game, users are after the ultimate prize: a three-night stay in South Tahoe where the winner and friends can explore their wild side with the destination’s promise of 24-hour gaming and nightlife, top-notch entertainment and adrenaline seeking outdoor recreation.
